The Haunted Ocean Edge Resort on Cape Cod Lures Guests to its Spooky Mansion

Stay is On the House for Spirit Seekers Who Spot Addie the Ghost

Brewster, MA – September 20, 2006 – Ocean Edge Resort & Club on Cape Cod is haunted!

Goblins, ghosts and ghouls are known for making “appearances” around Halloween. Ocean Edge Resort & Club dares ghost hunters to visit its haunted mansion to try and catch a glimpse of the resident ghost, Addie. The “Spooky Mansion” package boasts deluxe accommodations, daily breakfast for two, a jack-o-lantern of treats and complimentary late-night coffee and flashlight for night owls on the lookout for Addie. Those who show “proof” of spotting the capricious haunter will enjoy their entire stay on the house…the haunted house that is.* Ouija boards are available at the front desk for guests who want to have a séance to reach out to Addie.

The Spooky Mansion package is valid throughout the month of October and starts at $189 per room, per night.** Spirit seekers are invited to visit Addie throughout the year with room rates priced seasonally.

The Ghost Story

The original Nickerson Mansion, built in 1906 by Samuel Nickerson for his son Roland and his wife Addie, was burnt down in a great fire. The existing Victorian-style mansion, which is the centerpiece of Ocean Edge Resort & Club and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was re-built in 1912. However, Roland never got the chance to see this mansion, as he passed away just two weeks after the fire. Addie moved into the expansive home upon its completion with nothing but the empty halls to roam. Legend has it that Addie’s ghost still wanders the hallways, eternally heartbroken over the loss of her husband and desperately clinging to her Mansion.
