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

It is a charming, tastefully decorated, very homey bed and breakfast. The room we were in, albeit one of the smaller ones, up on the top,floor and gave us a great little view of the town. It has a wonderful and large outdoor patio area, and a perfect little serve-yourself breakfast that consisted of fruit, cereals, coffee, juice, and each... More

This was our first stay at Christopher's by the Bay and it is definitely the best accommodation in Ptown. Friendly, accommodating staff, clean rooms and bathrooms and very quick to solve any problems. They were very hospitable and made you feel very welcomed in their establishment. We are definitely staying there again next year!

Love the location of Christopher's, just a block away from Commercial St and easy walking or bicycling to every part of PTown. The inn is clean and well kept. Many upgrades since my first stay here several years ago. Local artists' work is featured throughout the downstairs. Inn keepers Dave and Jim are friendly and helpful to all of the... More

The innkeepers are very friendly and helpful for those who may be new to Provincetown with many tips on dining and exploring. We booked at the last minute so we did not have a full selection of rooms to choose from - ours was on the small side - although very clean the inn is a bit dated; decor and... More
