Subject: Thank you
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 :)

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

What a great day at the PO BOX got your package and our
photographs!! Thank you so much.
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!
There are way too many awesome photos to choose from

WE HAD THE BEST TIME EVER AND YOU ARE SO AMAZING.
The house was impeccably clean, the tent was beautiful,

I will be sending pictures of the tent when they come

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.
Mark & Christy,
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.

Rosas, Wedding April 27th, 2013
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.

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
to spend some time down there again soon.
Kindberg & Ciara Quatrain, Wedding September 15th, 2012
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..
Nicole, Jason and Cole Tetreault, Wedding June 2nd, 2012.
Photography by Newman, 508-238-6292,
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.

Portrait New England, (800) 576-5032,
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.
Nick Apiscopa Wedding, September
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
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>

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 :)

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.

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

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.
