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. 

Sincerely,

Angela Guido & Troy Joshua Moreth Wedding June 27th, 2013

“Wedding at The Corsair & Cross Rip Resort”
4 of 5 stars 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.

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's, Facebook posting, "View from the Commodore House on the most beautiful November weekend.  A perfect location for our wedding!  Thank you to the Corsair & Cross Rip family for making our day so special."

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.

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.

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.

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>

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!!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

 Lavery & Hilliard Wedding on 9/24/05

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.

Sincerely,
Jennifer and Rick Lavery
