Our Beachfront Cape Cod Resort

Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club is an upscale, family-friendly hotel, located on Cape Cod Bay. It’s split into two distinct areas: The Mansion, a Victorian-style building that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and The Villages, a collection of cozy villas that are steps away from golf, kayaking, and more.

The Nicksersons

Though the historic structure of Ocean Edge has stood for over a century, it was not originally a boutique hotel. Samuel Mayo Nickerson, a Chicago financial tycoon and a descendant of Cape Cod’s early puritan settlers, purchased 48 acres of land and developed a sprawling estate for his family. The two buildings—a palatial Victorian mansion called “Fieldstone Hall” and a Tudor-style stable on the hill that overlooked Cape Cod Bay—became a site for high society to convene for lavish parties and grew to be the Nickerson family’s favored summer retreat.

The La Salettes

In 1945, the Nickerson mansion was sold to the La Salette religious order. For nearly 40 years, its peaceful grounds and serene settings served as a place of meditation and sacred learning for the seminary students of La Salette.
