Paradise at the Edge
Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club is a world-class destination and a treasure for those who live and play here.
One of the most impressive and historic properties on Cape Cod is the former mansion of Samuel Mayo Nickerson, now home to Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club since 1986 when the august property first started to receive guests. The jewel of Cape Cod hospitality has 337 guest rooms and suites on 429 acres and features three outdoor and two indoor pools heated for winter use, nine tennis courts and Cape Cod’s only Nicklaus Design golf course which is as beautiful as it is challenging.
The resort offers more than just appetizing meals—it offers culinary experiences that will suit everyone’s tastes. Six restaurants across the property ensure that no matter what type of meal you desire, despite the variety of family members of culinary preferences, you will most likely find something that will make your meal memorable. Their Ocean Terrace, perched above Cape Cod Bay with unobstructed 180-degree-views from the South Shore to Provincetown is the perfect place to experience the quintessential Cape Cod day, accented by innovative and refreshing cocktails and first-class service. The elevated New England fare includes grilled lobster rolls with basil aioli, sumptuous clam chowder, and local oysters on the half shell. As the sun sets on the Bay, extinguishing the last light of a day full of the beach, pools, tennis/pickleball, biking, kayaking, golf, and every other activity Cape Cod has to offer, the conversation and conviviality continue around the fire bowls and comfortable seating found throughout the expansive Ocean Terrace lounge area.
The Roscommon Room, the original families formal dining room, is an indoor extension of Ocean Terrace. It provides a place to settle in surrounded by gleaming wood paneling, encompassed by expansive windows that frame the outstanding view.
Looking for a cozier scenario? Bayzo’s Pub in the lower level of The Mansion features flavorful bar cuisine, large screen televisions, their own craft brew “Bayzo Brew,” exclusively brewed for them by Cape Cod Beer, and fine spirits, all in an old-fashioned pub atmosphere. Signature dishes include prosciutto mac ‘n cheese with Vermont cheddar, craft-beer battered fish ‘n chips, and seared lobster with cognac cream.
From late morning until 9 o’clock at night, Linx Tavern adjacent to the manicured golf course, serves up lunch, light bites and delicious dinners. Menu items run the gamut from roasted local zucchini “guacamole,” grilled watermelon and burrata, pistachio and hazelnut-crusted cod and grilled swordfish fricassee. Two outdoor patios keep the options fresh and exciting.
The Beach Bar, added in 2016, is literally on the resort’s private beach atop a dune. The shaded pavilion has 32 seats for those looking to grab a light bite and regionally inspired cocktails. Unobstructed views make sure everyone is able to enjoy the splendor of the beach, without even getting sand in their shoes!
The most recent addition to the line-up of dining and entertaining options at Ocean Edge is The Front Lawn. Originally debuted during COVID-19, The Front Lawn experience, a pop-up concept that was enthusiastically welcomed in the summer of 2020, is now being embraced for the 2021 season. The Mansion’s front lawn is transformed into an open-air hangout where local craft brews, wood-fired bites including pizzas and other noshes, sailcloth tents with special seating, live music on the weekends and more come together as one. The space offers a relaxed venue for families, couples, or groups of friends to spend that much-needed quality time together in the fresh Cape Cod air. Menu high lights include lobster pizza, fig and prosciutto pizza, fire-roasted chicken wings, vegetable kabobs, blistered corn, BBQ ribs, and s’mores nachos.
