Very nice breakfast, great hosts, reasonable prices, parking, and you can walk everywhere. Christopher"s By The Bay has a great location for dining, shopping and walking around town. We couldn't have made a better choice for our dollar.

My room was small and on the third floor up some fairly steep steps. I would suggest the older folks ask for a room on the first floor. I had a small room which was clean and comfortable. It had a fridge, TV and DVD player. The wireless worked well. There was a telephone and clock radio. Bathroom was a... More

I highly recommend a stay at christopher's by the bay. We spend 2 nights with my wife end september in Rembrandt room. Comfortable and well-kept room, excellent service and amazing healthy homemade (banana cake or egg and ham) breakfast. Dave and Jim are hospitable, welcoming and always willing to help you.

The hosts were helpful and hospitable and the B&B had charm. The hosts had some good suggestions for our Dunes tour and even lent us a blanket for us to use while we watched the sunset. There were no vacancies available while we were staying there, yet it was so quiet it was as if the place was empty. So... More

I have stayed here twice and the staff are the best and try to accommodate any need. The surroundings and common areas and breakfast are great. The rooms are nice and well equipped, but I would definitely avoid the shared bath rooms on the 3rd floor. there are too many rooms sharing one bath with one single toilet. there was... More

Our first stay at Christopher's by the Bay last week was a real treat. Our hosts, Jim and Dave, were exceptionally thoughtful, hospitable and welcoming. The house is charming, comfortable and well-kept. Great location within walking distance to everything but still off the main street (Commercial) enough to be quiet and peaceful. Nice, fresh breakfast choices every morning. And a... More

Spent a week with Jim, David, and Doug...and it was not enough time! They were so friendly, welcoming, and accommodating...and extremely helpful and patient with our questions. The B&B is delightfully charming, clean, well-maintained, and very efficiently managed. Very close to all shopping, dining, entertainment, tours, and P-Town events, Christopher's is the perfect spot to be a part of the... More

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
