Stay & Play at one of the Cape’s Finest

Brewster’s Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club has it all. Watch the tidal chart for low tide and venture out for miles in the soft wet sand through tidal pools teeming with life across the “salt flat.” It is an otherworldly experience skimming along as slimy bumps appear on the surface with a bulging eyeball and razor clams shimmy up and down while all kinds of crabs scurry in and out. Cages full of Brewster’s oysters are harvested and transported with small wagons for commercial sale and preparation at the Ocean Edge Terrace. Fine cuisine is served inside or on the terrace overlooking the water. An open fire pit draws guests together to toast the sunset.

The 1890s historic Mansion Hotel offers the Presidential Bay Collection, Grand Corner Suites or Guest Rooms, all generously sized with a balcony. Villages for family or buddy excursions overlook the pond or Jack Nicklaus’ redesigned course.

The boutique store She Shells connects to Jomama for a cup of Joe or unique sandwiches. The Linx bar adjoins the pro shop and Bayzos is a pub named for old time boozer men. All dish up the best of Cape cuisine. Tennis courts, an impressive fitness center, swimming pools and bikes on the rail trail for 26 miles help work off the indulgence. On blueberry pond, kayaks or stand up paddleboards await adventurers. Alternatively, the Shark Bah at the Arbor pool is a place to sip, splash, or read a book and say ahhh.

Chatty beach attendants on the little boardwalk to the surf offer towels and chairs for patrons to wile away the day in or out of the waves. This is after all, the Ocean Edge. Coming soon is the beach bar deck. Exchange students from Eastern Europe, Ireland and South Africa happily serve guests throughout the resort. This is the finest luxury lifestyle on a 400-acre estate. It is another spot on the Cape that you might spend a night, then stay for a month and buy a permanent home. www.oceanedge.com
