The Mansion at Ocean Edge

Historical charm meets modern luxury
Along the stretches of Cape Cod’s iconic coastline, there are a number of places to stay, from simple tiny beach shacks to grand hotels with bevies of luxe amenities. But the Cape’s natural beauty is always the biggest draw with more than 115 beaches, excellent seaside dining options and a hundred miles of bike paths. The Mansion at Ocean Edge, located in Brewster, is perfectly positioned to enjoy it all. Composed of two unique styles of accommodations, Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club offers The Mansion, a historic Victorian-style property with 90 luxurious rooms (as well as two- and three-bedroom Presidential Bay Collection villas), or the Villages (one-, two- and three- bedroom villas).
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The 31 two- and three-bedroom Presidential Bay Collection suites are the height of luxury at the resort, with loads of space and amenities like a stocked kitchen, complimentary wine, lovely views and upscale Cape Cod décor.
  • The Mansion looks just like an English country manor that might make an appearance in an Agatha Christie novel. It’s a blend of Renaissance Revival and Gothic architecture, with lots of wood, leaded glass windows, historic photos from the Nickersons, and a sprawling lawn outside, which begs for a game of croquet.
  • Ultra-luxurious perks are reserved just for those staying at The Mansion. You have access to the resort’s private beach, with chair, towel, food and beverage service. Another nice touch is the beach bonfires at sunset, an unforgettable way to spend the evening.
  • The resort has the Cape’s only 18-hole Nicklaus Design championship golf course, and a large luxury ballroom, where many a wedding is held.
Things to Know
  • Ocean Edge is in the town of Brewster, a quintessential, picturesque Cape Cod village located almost exactly in the middle of the Cape filled with antique shops, quaint stores and great restaurants, as well as 5,000 acres of conservation land.
  • There are plenty of walking and biking trails, plus a natural history museum, live theater and historic architecture dating back to the 17th century.
  • Originally built in 1890, the Nickerson family home, now The Mansion, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
  • While the luxury hotel doesn’t have a traditional spa, it does have a treatment room in which the hotel can arrange a number of services. Facials, massages and waxing are available. The Stress Solution Spa Facial, which involves an aromatherapy oil massage of the face, neck and shoulders, is a nice way to kick off a relaxing getaway.
The Rooms
  • While the Cape Cod hotel is a historic 19th-century property, the recently renovated rooms are thoroughly modern.
  • Rooms all have resort or garden views, custom embroidery on pillows and duvets, Wi-Fi and charmingly old-fashioned games and toys like Rubik’s Cubes.
  • Corner suites feature a separate bedroom with a king-sized bed, gas fireplace, flat-screen TV and private bath with whirlpool.
  • The living and dining areas in the suites have gas fireplaces and a full-sized kitchenette and wet bar.
The Restaurants
  • Within The Mansion, there are two distinct dining experiences. The cozy Bayzo’s Pub looks like a speakeasy from the movies and serves traditional pub fare, while the elegant Ocean Terrance has unbeatable views of Cape Cod Bay. 
  • Ocean Edge Resort also has six other restaurants including Linx Tavern, the eatery within the golf clubhouse at the Villages and The Roscommon Room, a wood and mirrored bar with majestic bayside views.
  • If you’re spending the day poolside and get a craving for an icy cold beverage and delectable summer salad, order from the Snack Shacks & Cabanas or The Shark Bah.
  • The Beach Bar is a 32-seat covered lounge that sits atop Bay Pines Beach private dunes. This is the ideal place to take in the tide and sunset while sipping a craft cocktail.
