“Ah, to disappear into a thicket of dunes as the summer quiets to a close: At this rambling estate in sleepy Brewster, MA, near Cape Cod, it’s no daydream. The Mansion is one of two options at Ocean Edge (the other, Villages, overlooks the Cape’s sole Nicklaus-designed golf course, but is sadly deprived of direct beach access at Bay Pines), where rooms overlook the bay, and a beach, bar, and two pools are only a short footfall away. All told, it’s hard to resist the pull of this blue-blooded hideout, with its quintessentially Cape Cod décor (inoffensive shades of salmon, coral, and baby blue, and prim, white wooden furniture at every turn) and pleasantly low-key vibes… Bayzo’s pub is analogous to an English tavern, with creamy cups of clam chowder and a piano likely to launch you into Elton John renditions.”

There’s nothing quite like bellying up to a bar that overlooks the beach, with the little skyline of adult beverage offerings framing Cape Cod Bay. When the tide goes out, an oyster farm the size of half a football field is revealed, beckoning the celebrants to head right back out again.”

The Boston Globe, “The Cape’s first hotel beach bar opens.”

“As the only true hotel beach bar on Cape Cod, the Beach Bar at Ocean Edge will offer 32 seats on the dunes with panoramic views of Cape Cod Bay. Signature, handcrafted cocktails such as Cape Cod Cranberry Mojito, On the Dunes Martini and Terrace Sun-Setini will be offered from 11 am to 9 pm, seven days a week. The bar will be covered and guests can make themselves comfortable there or bring their order directly to the beach to enjoy in the sun and sand.”

“Dining is available in the gorgeous wood-paneled Roscommon Room, outside on the Ocean Terrace, downstairs in the cozy, stone walled Bayzo’s Pub (which also has a late-night menu and live entertainment in the summer) and at the Linx Tavern at the golf course. The food is exceptional and features items like fresh oysters from their own Bay Pine Beach, grilled local swordfish with lobster potato puree, a wonderful “Bloody Mary” shrimp skewer and an amazing Irish whiskey roasted salmon.”

“When it comes to dinner, be sure to request a seat on the outdoor patio for al fresco dining at Ocean Terrace, and order up a dozen local Brewster oysters to complement a cup of clam chowder filled with chunks of crisp bacon, fresh clams and tender potatoes. The halibut and tenderloin were standout entrees and their lobster dish is one of their signatures.”

“From Chatham mussels to Brewster oysters, the seafood at Ocean Terrace in Brewster is largely bay-to-table, and the herbs are grown on-site. Try the seared cod loin with lemon fingerling potatoes or fresh-caught swordfish with charred green tomato. The restaurant is part of the Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club, set on 429 acres of green and bluff overlooking Cape Cod Bay. You don’t have to stay there to dine, but you may want to — it has an 18-hole course, tennis courts, pools, and access to bike trail.”

Time Out New York Kids, “Summer weekend getaways from NYC”

“Where the Nickersons once held elaborate picnics, Ocean Edge now offers yoga on the beach, stand-up paddle boarding on the water, a deluxe tennis center, and shuttles to Crosby Beach… Enjoying the property, after all, is what Samuel Nickerson had in mind when he first laid eyes on the land. This spot was a playground for the Nickersons, and the play still continues.”

Boston Common Magazine, “A Grande Dame Finds New Life”

“Along the windy, two-lane road through the town of Brewster, two stone pillars signal your arrival at the Ocean Edge Resort. A horseshoe pathway leads your car to The Mansion for check in-an opulent, restored, 1912 Gatsby-esque gem with cement lions at the entry and guests playing croquet on the expansive front lawn. The red-tiled roofs of the new Presidential Villas dot the landscape, past the resorts’ tennis courts and family-packed outdoor pool to the sandy shores of Cape Cod Bay.”

Coastal Living, “Six Amazing Vacation Villas“

“At a resort, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. But not here, where a personal concierge caters to your whims. That’s a welcome addition to the Ocean Edge, which has undergone $50 million in renovations to its villas, mansion rooms, and restaurants. So now you get the coddling you’d expect from a boutique hotel, plus smart touches like a fridge stocked with ice cream and all the fixin’s for s’mores if you book a Mansion side villa.”

Boston Magazine – Best Resort, Cape Cod, Best of Boston Issue

“One of Cape Cod’s most frolicsome resorts…that’s Ocean Edge’s specialty; the replacement of worry with impulse. You know you’re on vacation when the day’s most perplexing question is, where would you like your beach chair?”

The Improper Bostonian – Life’s a Beach

“Beach: This is where Betty has to gush just a little more. Honestly, it would be enough that the beach is wide, the sand rock-free and fine, and the water shallow enough to paddle or swim without any undertow. But the Ocean Edge beach experience is a complete indulgence. Grab a chilled bottle of water and several towels from the attendant at the entrance to the boardwalk, and stride down the path {diva-style} to the beach. There, another attendant will set up a chair and umbrella, take your beverage order, and {if you feel a bit peckish after a dip in the warm water} bring you a light snack.”

“Located in the charming beach town of Brewster, Mass., the property has fused modern elegance with classic New England sensibilities and traditional Cape Cod style. The villas (from 1,000 to 1,600 square feet) have fully stocked kitchens and expansive views of Cape Cod Bay from the upstairs level, and many have fireplaces. In addition to the golf facilities, the property has four eateries and biking, tennis, and swimming.”

The Robb Report

“Splashes of sea foam, period furnishings and restored woods help Ocean’s Edge Resort & Golf Club personify the Cape Cod aesthetic to a tee. With the introduction of its Presidential Bay Collection of accommodations this week, the property’s aim is to raise beach chic to unprecedented heights.”

Startle Travel Blog, the online home of Forbes Travel Guide

“A favorite with families, there’s activities and attractions for everyone, from the five swimming pools!, the bicycling right on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, to the fabulous golfing. The premier resort on the mid-Cape.”

Yankee Magazine

“The setting was something straight out of a movie. The sun had disappeared over the horizon, casting a pink glow in the warm night air. The waves were gently lapping at our feet as we strolled down the beach, passing a few bond fires and friendly families.

“Watch out for the sparks!” One father warned us as we walked by his fire, offering a friendly hello as he corralled his three boys who where running circles with sparklers.

It was the weekend before July 4th and summer was in full swing on Brewster beach halfway up Cape Cod, MA. My girlfriend Emmie and I had escaped the first heat wave of the summer in New York City for a weekend at The Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster.”

A Weekend Getaway on Cape Cod – Taking the

“On the beckoning hook of Massachusetts lies the town of Brewster, with mirage-like tidal flats so vast that a coast in Brazil is said to be their only rival in size. During low tide, you can walk a mile into the ocean on freshly exposed sand, alongside minnow-filled tidal pools, skittering hermit crabs, and bubbles from quahogs breathing underfoot.”

America’s Most Beautiful Coastal Views – Travel and Leisure

“The resort is anchored by a historic mansion on the bayside north shore. Returning families say the private beach is the best spot on the Cape to watch the sunset. Get a golf fix on the Nicklaus-designed course, or enjoy indoor and outdoor pools. Ocean Edge Adventure for kids stages projects such as kite-making. Thursday nights are reserved for beach bonfires.”

Coastal Living Magazine

“The Mansion’s Ocean Terrace restaurant has seasonal patio dining and panoramic views of the ocean. So romantic is this spot, that it is the site of a couple of marriage proposals a month. All the rooms in the wings at the Mansion had extreme makeovers by Lynda Snyder Associates Inc. of California. The long, narrow rooms, which range from 480 to 680 square feet, seem roomier with the redesign; the beds are now kitty-corner to face the balconies and ocean.”

“Although the resort offers lots of accommodation options, kids are best kept in the private villas. These come with up to three bedrooms, a modern kitchen and extra bathrooms, as well as broad swathes of living space to festoon with Legos. Best, the villas are within steps of three outdoor swimming pools for chlorinated entertainment. In the afternoons, staffers lead waterlogged kids in poolside craft activities, while evenings bring outdoor movie screenings.”

The Improper Bostonian

“This place proves summer after summer that “family vacation” isn’t an oxymoron. The mid-Cape institution has hit upon a formula that every (supposedly) family-friendly resort should copy: three-bedroom suites to maximize personal space; kitchens, so you can avoid public mealtime meltdowns; and in-suite washer-dryers. Ocean Edge also hosts beachside campfires, barbecues, and ice cream socials, plus one different day camp for kids each week. You may even find time to hit the resort’s Nicklaus Design golf course or get a facial in the spa before the tots notice you’re gone.”
