Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club in Brewster, Massachusetts
At the turn of the 20th Century, the original mansion of Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club was home to prominent Brewster businessman Samuel Nickerson and hosted lavish soirées for New England society. Today it’s a well-groomed resort for guests who appreciate a country club ambience with historic flair: The carved busts of Shakespearean characters preside over the lobby, while leaded glass windows and terraces overlook the Bay. The mansion rooms are cozy, with a marble fireplace to warm up chilly nights, while spacious one- to three-bedroom villas sidle up to the golf course.
Rent a bike to navigate the 26-mile trail through scrubby beach trees and wild roses to the Cape Cod National Seashore. Listen to the lonesome call of a foghorn at sea while walking along receding tides toward the lighthouse. Dig into a lunchtime plate of buttered lobster and battered flounder. Sip on the peninsula’s namesake cranberry-and-vodka cocktail on a breezy mansion terrace.

Reviews for Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club
The room itself (175D) was okay. Plenty of space for two people and two flat screens, including one in the bedroom. Our only disappointment was maintenance, which had 'gone to seed'. It was a struggle to open the sliding door to the deck and we finally gave up with it. The bathroom towel rack (metal) feel to the floor, just missing my toes and boy! THAT would have hurt and I may still be hobbled from it. Otherwise we recommend it, but Maintenance staff must get on the ball (or there could be liabilities). I would be far less happy if that metal bar hit my foot, but geez!! What about the next persons renting that room??
We live in Connecticut and decided to have a 3 day (2 night) getaway at Cape Cod in mid May, a couple of weeks before the season started and things got very expensive and crowded. Our room at the Villages turned out to be more like an apartment...It had a big living room, a full kitchen, and a slightly small, but comfortable bedroom. We brought breakfast food, which worked out well, saving us both time and money. The kitchen had things like plates & bowls, silverware and glasses, but no napkins or paper towels, so you should bring paper goods if you bring food. Our accommodation was very clean and comfortable. If there was anything at all that was an issue, it was that there were really nice, heavy blackout drapes in the bedroom that went down to the floor. The problem was, the air conditioner unit was right below the window. When the curtains were closed, they totally covered the air conditioner, making the room warm. The landscaping at the resort was beautiful. We really liked the staff at the front desk. They were very friendly and helpful. I especially liked Patrick. He was extremely helpful and was very concerned that we have a good experience at the resort...Which we did!

Too many problems with this hotel to mention.... here's a few...1) very uncomfortable bed, the frame didn't match the headboard, with a space a foot wide, so the pillows kept falling through to the floor all night. I even smacked my hand on the headboard, trying to reach for a fallen pillow. 2) we arrived Friday night for a Saturday night wedding. Went sightseeing during the day on Saturday, getting back to the room at about 3:30, to get ready for the wedding at 5:30. Our room wasn't even cleaned when we got back. 3) then, to top it off, a week before our stay, we saw the rooms advertised for about $60 less than our Group Rate. We were told that since it was less than 8 days before our stay, there was nothing they could. In the end, they gave us a discount...for that and all our troubles...but the funny thing is, they agreed to give each of our friends who were with us a different discount. Bottom line, off season, they really tried to screw us, period.

The Villages at Ocean Edge Resort are nice. We stayed for a weekend wedding recently (May 2017) and found our suite to be quite acceptable. And therein lies the rub: it was nothing special. I mentioned to friends that it was really like some of the residence or all suites hotels at which I've stayed...for far less money. I felt like the expected amenities were there. Good linens, fluffy towels, a nice coffee maker. What I especially didn't like was that there was such a divide between the mansion rooms and the villages. Some guests could use some facilities, but not others. As a woman who grew up on Cape Cod, I was particularly annoyed by the fact that the private beach for mansion guests was not open to those staying in 'the villages'; what a bunch of nonsense. I also thought that for the price per night, there was no need to add a resort fee, especially off season. To put that in perspective, it cost me $50.00 to use one pool for one swim. A particularly bright spot of our weekend, however, was the staff. The women who checked us in, the bartenders at Bayzo's Pub, the servers at the wedding were all professionals and especially kind. The housekeeper in The Villages was more than accommodating when asked to return later in the day. I sincerely hope that these employees are well compensated because they are the reason my rating isn't lower. Lest you think that perhaps I'm just not used to the ways of the resort life, please know that I've stayed in castles turned resort where I was made to fell far more welcomed and treated far more like 'a valued guest'. This property is ok, but it is not as hyped.

The hotel was ok. We stayed here for the night after buying a groupon so i am glad we didn't pay full price. The room itself was nice, but looked like it needed some updating. There were spots on carpet and places on wall where it looked like it was going to be painted but that never happened. The bed was comfortable and everything appeared clean. It was also good that they provided basic items such as plates,glasses, utensils, knives(maybe think about keeping them in higher drawer, not one at child's height). We were charged a fee for all the amenities but never used any since it was the beginning of april and cold and rainy. The onsite restaurants were not open yet but the one overlooking the ocean looked like it would be nice. I admit that our stay might have been less than pleasurable due to the weather and cranky children but I still think updates could be done. Would maybe stay there again. My parents are staying this weekend so I will see that they think and go from there.
