Lindsay George & Scott Organek Wedding, May 5th, 2018
Scott Organek reviewed The Corsair & Cross Rip Oceanfront Family Resort — 5 star on Facebook· 

We had our wedding here just a few weeks ago and the team could not possibly have been better to work with. Where we appreciate all of the staff here, Mark, Ian, and Sapphire really went above and beyond to help make our entire experience perfect. We could tell right from the start that they are all genuinely really good people.

We had a very small wedding, only 18 people including both of us, and the Commodore House was the perfect place for her to get ready and for our dinner. We then stayed there for the rest of the week as a mini honeymoon and loved it.

Some of our guests even booked a weekend in June while they were there and we are already booked to return in August.

You all have fans for life!!!

My husband and I cannot thank the Corsair and Cross Rip resort enough for making our wedding weekend more perfect than we could have ever imagined! Mark and his staff could not have been more accommodating! We are both from Massachusetts but we were planning our wedding from our previous duty station in Alabama and they made it very easy to communicate and plan via email and phone! They were there whenever we needed them to answer our questions and give us whatever information we needed! The week leading up to the wedding they provided a wedding coordinator for us who met with us multiple times and helped us make sure all of the largest and smallest details were taken care of, which helped us relax and put our minds at ease! The Corsair and Cross Rip is a beautiful, casual, beachie, clean, and relaxing resort, which is exactly what we wanted for our wedding! It has its own private beach, two hotels, and also 3 beautiful homes available to rent all on the same property! This made it easy for the two of us to come with our close family and stay the whole week leading up to wedding. This helped us relax and get everything ready without any rushing around! It was amazing to be able to have all of our family and friends staying in one place the entire weekend! They were all more than satisfied with their stay and had nothing but great things to say about the wedding weekend! Thank you all again for making our wedding more perfect than we could have ever imagined! We will definitely be back to visit the beautiful resort and wonderful staff! -Mr. and Mrs. McKenna

Hello Mark and everyone at the Corsair,

Thank you so much for making our wedding so perfect. I apologize that it has taken this long, but I have been thinking of that day (or more so week) with a smile on my face for months. Everyone that works at the corsair was not only helpful but also a pleasure to be around. So much gratitude that I cannot fully express. Here is the video of the wedding that I'm sure will help to spread the word about what a truly magical location the corsair is. I also have pictures I have been wanting to send along, so you will see those shortly. Also the video company would be happy to shoot for any other couple getting marries there in the future, so if anyone is interested let me know! Here is the video if you would like to post and share! Thank you so much again, a million times over :)  https://vimeo.com/200717766

Great place for a wedding!”

The Croanauer/Cummings Wedding 9/17/16

 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW    

Loved the resort! We rented the Captains House for the week before my son's wedding which was held at the hotel site. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our house was lovely and when we had a problem with our hot water we were credited with a 1 day refund. Mark couldn't have been more helpful with the logistics of a wedding for 135. I highly reccomend the Corsair & Cross Rip and would return for a visit tomorrow!

Our wedding was everything we dreamed and more!  Even with the weather being less than perfect, everything about our day was magical.  The ocean, the beautiful houses and the picture perfect backgrounds just added to our families and friends coming together to celebrate our long awaited marriage!  We danced and laughed all night, and really could not have asked for anything better!! Thank you to the Corsair & Cross Rip and all our vendors to help make our day amazing!

The house was impeccably clean, the tent was beautiful, and all your help was out of this world amazing. 

I will be sending pictures of the tent when they come in, and we also did some other cute things around the house.

I will be in touch but just wanted to send you a quick note now while I was thinking of you (FONDLY.)

We are all booked to celebrate our 1 year anniversary in October. Our best decision...get married. Our next best, to get married here. Can't wait to walk the beach, swim in the indoor pool, use the hot tub, sit on our deck and remember our fabulous wedding weekend.



Hi Mark & Christy, 

I just wanted to thank you both so much letting us hold our wedding at your hotel and especially for your help with it all! Christy was incredible and I would have been lost without her. We are thrilled with how it went and it was certainly one of the best days of my and my husband's life. You have a beautiful property! We were just so impressed with the house as well. 

Thank you again, and best of wishes for the remainder of the summer season.

Reviewed June 26, 2013 on Trip Advisor

I got married at The Corsair & CrossRip Resort June 21st and it was PERFECT!!!!!!! Mark Downey and his staff are super nice and very helpful. Sapphire at the front desk is a class act. She was there to help with anything I needed. Christy Mendes the wedding coordinator was excellent too and really helped me with the rehearsal and coordinating the ceremony and reception.

The house was beautiful and we had a beautiful weekend there. Thanks again for your love and help with everything we needed and making our stay happy and delightful.

With Love, (Now) April Rosas =)

April Shanks & Rosas, Wedding April 27th, 2013


Our wedding day at the Commodore House was a dream come true. A beautiful November day with the ceremony on the deck overlooking this picturesque beach exceeded our dreams. The house was transformed beyond our expectations and was perfect for our small, intimate, classy wedding. Thank you to all who made this day one will never forget.

Kathy Barrett Smith & John Frisch, Wedding November 10th, 2012


Hi Mark,
Thank you & your team for all that you did for us this past week. I don't even know where to begin?! The house accommodations worked out perfectly; we had everything we needed to be comfortable.   Judith was a doll, and such a great helper from directing guests, to queuing the DJ on music/ceremony entrances, to helping shlep center pieces across the street, and I could go on.  

Please thank her again on my behalf. Our time spent at the Corsair was just wonderful.

Hope to spend some time down there again soon.  

Laura Kindberg & Ciara Quatrain, Wedding September 15th, 2012



We rented the mates house for the week of our wedding June 2,2012.The house was great and the staff fantastic...the tent went up Friday and the wedding weekend began. Our guest stayed at the hotel and could not
say enough of the staff and their accommodations. Mark and Judy met with me the day before the wedding to make sure everything went without a hitch and it did. We were slightly disappointed when the weather
called for rain and we were not able to use the grassy area overlooking the beach for the ceremony but rain and hurricane like weather did not stop the best days of our lives from happening! Our guest had a great
time and still have not stopped talking about our day and their stay at the Corsair Crossrip in Dennis mass.. Thank you again for making our special week and day go so well..

When my husband and I began to think about the type of wedding we hoped to have, the first thing that came to our minds was having a venue that could accommodate all of our events in one place. The majority of our guests would be flying in from all over the country, so comfort and convenience once they arrived were paramount in our decision. After visiting a few other locations on the Cape, we toured the Corsair and Cross Rip and knew immediately that this was the perfect spot for our special weekend. Right from the start, working with Mark and Judith was such a wonderful experience which only got better as the planning continued. They were always responsive to all my forms of communication, and even helped me choose all my vendors, making the process such an easy and pleasant experience. My family and I spent the week leading up to the wedding in The Commodore Beach House, which served as the perfect location for the rehearsal dinner and became the main meeting area as our families and friends made their way down the Cape. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and our reception were all held on the property in their own distant locations, with Nantucket Sound as a gorgeous backdrop. Our guests are still raving about the weekend, and can't say enough how much they loved our venue. Their accommodations were incredibly comfortable and affordable, and they appreciated the ease and accessibility of the weekend events. Our wedding day was spectacular, from start to finish, and I know that so much of that has to do with where we choose to host our event. The Corsair and Cross Rip exceeded any and all of our expectations, and we truly look forward to spending our first anniversary where it all started, back on the Cape overlooking Nantucket Sound.

Our dream of having a Cape Cod beachfront wedding came true, when we found the Corsair & Cross Rip Oceanfront Resort.  Mark and his staff were organized and helpful with setting up our ceremony, closing the nearby pool at the appropriate times, and bending over backwards for our guests.  The staff helped to direct our vendors with setting up chairs for the ceremony and with organizing the clean-up, for us to take pictures.  Our family and friends were very happy with their rooms, and it was especially meaningful for us to have all our guests staying at one place.  Mark was very accommodating and helpful throughout the planning process, helping us to create a ceremony site which we will remember forever.  Getting married over looking the water was breath-taking!  We highly recommend the Corsair & Cross Rip Oceanfront Resort for a wedding ceremony site and for a great place for your guests to stay on your wedding weekend.

-Hayley & Nick Apiscopa Wedding, September 4, 2011



We were there for our son's wedding.  We doubled up on rooms, and were situated near each other so we could share talking and relaxing inbetween activities.  Staff was helpful and pleasant.  The breakfast offerings were ample and delicious.  We were in walking distance of a restaurant we went to the night before the wedding; also in walking distance of the Sea View, the venue where the wedding took place.  We stayed from Friday to Sunday; two family members stayed over until Monday.

We loved the ocean in our back yard, the sea smell, and the whole atmosphere.  Of course, it was late September (23, 24, 25); I don't know if I'd be as happy anywhere on the Cape in the middle of the season!  I recommend and would come back to the Corsair for sure especially earlier or later than the usual season.

 I tried Trip Advisor to post this; either my iMac didn't want to, or I'm too dumb to figure out how to.

Anyway, from the reservation desk to the room service to the plumber (we had a clog) to the breakfast - and everyone else as well - we had nothing but praise from our family for your hotel.

Laura Green & Lyman Wornham Wedding, 9/24/2011



Hi Mark,

 Thank you for being so gracious and patient during our meeting.  I am sure you have dealt with a lot of different types so being with the 6 of us was just another day's work!!  However, we were impressed with your knowledge and your willingness to answer every question.  Kevin and Meg are busy planning - they left the meeting feeling like the biggest decision had been made and the other pieces would fall into place - that was all due to you!  A great wedding planner :p>

 Happy New Year :p>

:p>Hello Mark and Staff,

I just want to warn/inform you.  Everyone LOVED the Corsair/Crossrip so much that they are talking about coming back for our anniversary (September 25th weekend).  I'm fairly certain that we will not be celebrating this 1 year of marriage alone.  I already know that my grandparents/parents/ mother's friends and 2 sets of our friends are planning on making our wedding a tradition....so I'll let everyone know that they can start booking now....I guess we will see what happens but you should know that every time I see anyone who was there they cannot stop talking about how wonderful your hotel was and how special they felt and how fantastic the entire staff was!  Thank you all for making it so amazing that we may all come and do the trip again!  If you all hadn't been so wonderful you could have gotten rid of us...but now you are stuck :)
Yours, :p>

Mark & James -

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. The house (Commodore) was absolutely gorgeous and helped made our wedding weekend perfect. Our family and friends loved it , too. Thanks much for all your work during our stay there.  We, and all of our guests really enjoyed it.  We greatly appreciate your hospitality and are looking forward to visiting again.

Sincerely, Meghan & Collin Johnson



Dear Mark,

We wanted to let you know how pleased we were during our stay and our daughter's wedding at the Commodore's House. Your staff and manager James were so accommodation all week to help us prepare for Stacy & Cris' wedding.

Your maintenance man cut shrubs update flowers and did several other chores for us all week. James and his staff assisted with the wedding set up. The housekeeping staff provided any needed cleaning products and papergoods.

The facilities were great for our relatives and friends who stayed over. A great time was had by everyone! We would be glad to recommend your beach properties to anyone who is considering a beach wedding!

Thank you so much,

Sue & Bruce Ferreira

Hi Mark,

 Well, it's been three months now since our wedding and Geoff and want to thank you and your staff for helping us design and set up for our wedding! As you know, your staff helped us set up for the wedding, and helped clean up after the party. But I don't recall ever being treated so nicely at a hotel before, it was such a refreshing feeling. The Corsair-Cross Rip staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs. So please, thank them for us. We definitely appreciated all their hard work that helped to make our wedding exactly what we wanted.

 From the days leading up to and the days after our wedding, our memories and pictures can do no justice to what a wonderful time we and our guests had. Everyone who attended our wedding continue to talk about what a great time they had! I'm sure we will continue to talk about our wedding for years to come.

 Since being back to the everyday "normal" life, I will admit that we miss the time we had in the Commodore House. It was wonderful to wake up and hear the ocean waves crash against the shore, walk along the beach in the evening, seeing the sun set, and just having peace and quiet. It was the
 best place for us to just get away from the business of life. But alas, we're home. All we have now are memories and many many pictures. I've attached a couple of pictures for your scrapbook. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

 Thank you again many times over! I'm sure you'll be hearing from us soon!
 Sara and Geoffrey

Rust & Ross Wedding on 10/11/07

" Our stay at the Corsair and Cross Rip was everything and more than we imagined. Ever since I was a little girl I vacationed at the Cape and dreamt of one day being married there. When I came across this location I didn't look any further! The Commodore House was perfect for our small reception and the ceremony overlooking the ocean was breath taking. We are still hearing about how amazing our wedding day was, as well as the amazing pictures we will have to treasure forever!
The staff was so accommodating and friendly to my guests and I ! The rooms were beautiful and comfortable!!! Everyone couldn't stop saying how impressed they were and how reasonable the rates were! Many are planning to return to The Corsair and Cross Rip in the future with their own familes! We have already talked about holding a 5 yr celebration and re-renting the house again- it really couldn't have been more a more perfect day/ weekend event!!!
You and your staff made our special day magical!!! And there aren't words to express that enough!!!!

Dear Mark-

So, married life has been hectic and I apologize for not writing to you sooner to thank you for all your help planning my wedding.  We had a perfect weekend and people are still raving that it was the best wedding anyone has ever been to.

You and your staff are absolutely wonderful.  You went above and beyond to cater to our every need and then there were all the extra things you anticipated... having grills for the barbeque, the extra refrigerator, buckets to hold beer, etc.  We couldn't have pulled it off without your help.  Also, I am grateful for all the help with the clean up, but again, it was just another way your kind staff went above and beyond. 

Please use me as a reference for any bride considering having her wedding at your hotel.  I am happy to offer suggestions about vendors as everyone we worked with was fabulous.

I hope you are doing well and that this season brings many happy brides your way as they will not be disappointed. Attached are some pictures from that weekend, please let me know if you are looking for anything specific as there are plenty more pictures where those came from.

Thank you again for making our wedding weekend better than I could have possibly imagined.
