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

We spent an extended week every year at Cristopher's at the Bay and feel always welcome by Jim and Dave. I feel that this review should be written right after our visit, but coming back to town we have been overwhelmed with things to catch up. When Jim and Dave reminded us about our planned visit next year, I realized... More

I had a wonderfully relaxing stay at cozy Christopher's thanks to Dave, Jim and Doug's top-notch hospitality. Helpful advice about what to do and where to go in Ptown; comfortable, clean rooms in a historic, cared-for house; friendly, quiet guests; simple but delicious daily breakfasts; central location; and lovable Linus. Made to feel perfectly welcomed at this home away from... More

This place served our purpose for Ptown well. The location is great and close to Commercial. The owners and staff are extremely nice and helpful. The outside patio area was very cute and relaxing. The rooms are nice, but the beds and rooms could use a bit updating. Additionally, there were some cracks in the walls at various spots that... More
