Our room was tastefully decorated, well appointed and immaculate. We enjoyed the art, the bedding, and the attention to detail. Jim and Dave made our stay one to remember! The breakfast was delicious, the garden delightful and Jim and Dave gave us lots of great recommendations for restaurants and things to do! We will definitely return to Christopher's!

I've stayed at Christopher's for a number of years and in various guestrooms. The third floor rooms are smaller bedrooms but have great views of the water. The shared bathroom was spacious and clean. At different times I've stayed in rooms on the first and second floors. While they don't have the waterview, they are comfortable, have nice queen beds... More

Excellent location, very accommodating hosts and fascinating architecture. We stayed on the third floor where rooms are quite small but downstairs has nice living area for reading or rainy days. You do need to be flexible on the third floor however, shared bathroom is not for everybody. Six rooms for one bathroom- double sinks, two shower stalls, one toilet behind... More

This hotel is based right in the heart of Provincetown, but far enough from the bars to be silent at night. The hotel was spotless, the service was prompt, unobtrusive and thorough, and the hosts couldn't have been more pleasant. Lots of variety was available at breakfast including muffins, quiche and fresh berries, and both the inside and outside dining... More

After having been to Provincetown on several occasions, Christopher's has become THE inn of choice. We've stayed at other locations, but the service, quality, cost, location and friendliness here far exceeded the others by far. The continental breakfast was more than adequate for even the pickiest of eaters. My room was spotless (thanks Doug!) and the bed comfortable; so much... More

Chistopher’s By the Bay is the perfect place to stay in P’town. We have been here numerous times and it feels so comfortable that it's like we are staying at a good friend’s house. Jim and Dave know everything that’s going on in town and they are full of suggestions for things to do - like whale watching, dune tours,... More

Christopher's By the Bay is a quintessential Ptown guesthouse. The rooms are all very nicely decorated and very clean. They are renovating some of the rooms and they look great! The breakfast is just perfect for getting you started in the morning: fresh muffins, cereal and Orange juice. The owners are great guys and know all that there is to... More

Christopher's absolutely rocks. This B&B had the quintessential P-Town "vibe" I was hoping for the very moment I stepped inside the B&B. Had some wonderful conversations with their charming Innkeepers. Jim and Dave both knew exactly where to suggest I go eat and explore, even when I had no idea what I wanted to do most days. Ended up also... More

We just booked our return trip - - and we can’t wait. Last year was our first time at Christopher’s, which is the perfect place to experience all the charm of Provincetown. We love everything about the place. It is perfectly located just off Commercial Street and it is within a short walking distance from great restaurants, galleries, shops, etc.... More

We booked late, one couple and a single; Innkeeper Jim was very accommodating in finding rooms for us! Charming and quaint in quiet but close-in East End with cute patio garden. Awesome continental+ breakfast. Can't wait to go back
