The Mansion at Ocean Edge (2907 Main St, Brewster) is the gorgeous former estate of the Nickerson family that now boasts beautiful accommodations for the discerning traveler.
The original mansion mysteriously burned down in 1906; the mansion you see today was rebuilt on the original foundations and completed in 1912.

The Beach House Spa is a premier destination down the Cape, just note that it is not located on-site at the Mansion, but about 0.5 miles down Main Street at the entrance to The Villages at Ocean Edge.
We love recommending The Villages for Cape rentals with a pool (great for families, but not quite as romantic).
There are various dining options at Ocean Edge, but the best spot right at The Mansion is The Front Lawn, where you can order some light bites and enjoy a few drinks al fresco on the expansive grounds.
In the evening, cozy up beside a fire pit together as you toast to beautiful romantic escapes in scenic settings.

Chatham Bars Inn
Chatham Bars Inn (297 Shore Rd, Chatham) is hands-down one of the most romantic places to stay on Cape Cod.
Opened in 1914 for Bostonians to escape the city for a luxurious getaway on Cape Cod, the Chatham Bars Inn was completely renovated in 2006 and continues to offer that top-tier luxury service that made them famous in the 20th century.
The Main Inn offers rooms and suites; book an ocean-view king suite for a truly special getaway.
The cottages are another fantastic option for more privacy; ocean-view king rooms are available here, too, and some even have a gas fireplace.
If you’re going all out for a special getaway, then book a spa suite; these 12 rooms above the spa offer an adults-only space with in-room fireplaces, hydrotherapy tubs, and private saunas for a dreamy experience.
You can spend your whole trip at the 25-acre resort dining, drinking, swimming, sunbathing, playing in the sand, or pampering yourselves at the Forbes Four-Star spa.

Catch a performance at the Orpheum Theatre or do some local shopping at the unique boutique stores.

I recommend sharing fish and chips from the market — it’s the freshest I’ve ever had!
