Ocean Edge Resort's Pet Policy
Our pets are family, which is why we invite you to bring your four-legged companion on vacation! We’ll welcome them with a plush dog bed, food and water bowls, and, of course, plenty of treats.
Spend your days exploring Cape Cod’s numerous dog-friendly beaches and trails, before turning in for the night in our spacious one-bedroom villas.
And after all, who loves a trip to the beach more than your pup?
Pet-friendly accommodations will be available at The Villages at Ocean Edge beginning in March 2018. Availability is limited. Reservations must be made by calling the Resort directly at 508.896.9000 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
To ensure the needs of our human and four-legged guests, some rules and restrictions do apply.
A limited number of pet-friendly guestrooms are available at The Villages at Ocean Edge. Guests will be required to sign and comply with the Resort’s Pet Policy upon check-in.
Town of Brewster
Dogs and other pets are not allowed on public beaches, tidal flats, landings, and public ponds from May 1st through October 1st.
Town of Dennis
Dogs are not allowed on public beaches during the summer season, however a selection of ponds and conservation areas remain dog-friendly throughout the year. Please note that these areas may be closed due to shorebird nesting.
Town of Orleans
Dogs are not allowed on public beaches from April 1st through Labor Day.
Cape Cod National Seashore
Dogs are welcome at numerous locations throughout the Cape Cod National Seashore, including ocean beaches outside of the lifeguard-protected areas. Please note that dogs must remain on a six-foot leash and are not allowed on the Coast Guard Beach Shuttle, in posted shorebird nesting areas, or in other designated areas.
Nickerson State Park
Nickerson State Park offers a wealth of dog-friendly trails and ponds. However, please note that dogs must remain leashed and are not allowed on the beaches at Big Cliff, Small Cliff, or Flax Pond.
Cape Cod Rail Trail
Dogs are allowed on the 22-mile Rail Trail, which offers paved paths and multiple parking locations. The Rail Trail runs adjacent to The Villages and can be accessed via the connector path by the Britterige Guard Shack. Dogs must remain leashed, and should be kept on a close leash due to the number of bikers and walkers on the trail.
Ticks remain a problem throughout Cape Cod. Please ensure that your pet receives proper flea/tick preventatives prior to and after their visit, and check them thoroughly after going outside and before re-entering your guestroom.
