I have been meaning to write this for a while now, but I got busy, as people do, but still remembered my stay with such happiness that I knew I'd get back to this site to post a review, so here goes. Christopher's by the Bay in Provincetown was much more than I expected it to be. I felt immediately... More

Spent a long weekend at Christophers off-season at the end of October. It's centrally located, just off Commercial, and is walking distance to all the restaurants, bars, galleries and shops. If you travel to P-town without a car, or you simply walk to park your wheels and not worry about it, this is a great place. The hosts, Jim and... More

On season this must be amazing. Right off commercial so everything is within walking distance. Off season there's a cosy gas fire place and the rooms are just a beautiful. The folks here are nice and helpful.

I can't say enough good things about Christopher's. The room as well as entire house was beautiful and tastefully decorated. The staff was welcoming and helpful. It was a short walk to downtown. In honor of my girlfriend's birthday they gave us an upgrade in our room and at my request provided flowers and wine that were a perfect start... More

We loved our cozy room, the "fireplace room" with 2 comfy sofas (and homemade cookies), the friendliness of our hosts (and the conversations with them over breakfast and in the afternoon), the tasteful decoration. Breakfast was great too, and we regretted that we could not stay one night longer.

This was my first time staying Christopher's, and I would highly recommend it for the single traveler. Dave and Jim were super nice and friendly. The place is very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. The location is ideal for walking around town. I didn't need my car at all after it was parked. I wasn't sure about sharing a... More

This was my second visit to Christopher's and it was every bit as wonderful as the first, two years ago. Hosts Dave and Jim are consistently kind, good-natured and generous. Each went out of his way to make my stay very enjoyable. The location is ideal, close enough to the center of town to be convenient but far enough away... More

I was recommended by a townie to stay at this B&B. I knew it would be good because my friend wouldn't steer me wrong, but I was amazed at how wonderful it was. Dave & Jim - the owners - were so generous, thoughtful and considerate. The place has so much character and has been restored and decorated beautfully. And... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Christopher's by the Bay. We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts and staff and felt at home from day one. The guest house itself is beautifully furnished, clean and perfectly situated in a quiet location just off Commercial Street - very close to the action but equally set in peaceful... More

There's a reason why Christopher's is the only place we stay in P-Town if we have the choice! We've been coming down and staying there for over a decade now, in all 4 seasons. Dave and Jim are just the best, warm and friendly to everyone (my partner and I were the only gay ones out of our party of... More
