I can't fault anything. Everything was absolutely wonderful: the room, the hosts, the view, the service, the atmosphere and the location. My boyfriend and I only stayed for one night, but we enjoyed ourselves immensely and will definitely stay at the Benchmark Inn when we are next in Provincetown.

The Benchmark Inn is a lovely bed and breakfast in the middle of Provincetown. Dan and Daniel were polite, informative and friendly; they made us feel welcome and at home. The house is beautifully appointed, clean, with a clean modern bathroom. The bed was comfortable and seemingly new. Highly recommend.

My hubby and I spent 7 wonderful nights here for Carnaval. What a delightful experience. Everything is well appointed and thoughtfully laid out. The homemade pastries every morning were delicious. Dan and Daniel are the consummate hosts. They made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived.

My fiancée and I spent last week at the Benchmark and everything from the reservation booking to our final flight out of Provincetown was made that much more pleasurable with the help of Dan and Daniel. Absolutely top notch attention to detail not only in the care, decor and cleanliness of their beautiful home, but also in making sure guests... More

Just got back from Ptown and a stay at the Benchmark! We would recommend the Benchmark to all! Clean, comfy, quiet, short walk to town, great outdoor space, breakfast, parking, M&M's and Dan and Daniel! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay at the Benchmark Inn in Provincetown. Dan and Daniel went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Their attention to detail and concern about guest comfort reflect a level of inn keeping that discerning travelers will appreciate. The inn is spotlessly clean and thoughtfully appointed. We loved Dan and Daniel’s European-style breakfast,... More

Thank you so much for your terrific review. We're always happy to hear that a lot of our guests like our "European Style". We're proud to say that we even see it as a "Swiss Style", as we are both from Switzerland originally ;-) It is always our great pleasure to help our guests with reservations or telling them what...

Having stayed at the Benchmark a few years back and liking the New England clap-board style, we were very happy to return ....and found Dan and Daniel have created an even more fantastic place to stay! Everything from Daniel's welcome off the boat (over from Boston) through healthy, relaxing breakfasts on the patio (or around the communal table) to our... More

Thank you so much for your review, Steven. we are happy that our efforts keeping our 1850 cape house up do date and in a contemporary style pleased you. We always feel sorry if our guests sometimes experience bad weather, but we are also delighted if we can add a little something to cheer them up on a rainy day.... More

Exactly what I expect from a B and B and more: welcoming and attentive inkeepers, clean and very comfortable room, nice view from the balcony and very good breakfast. I would go back any time, so I recommand it without any doubt.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Benchmark Inn. When we arrived, Daniel introduced us to what was happening in the town and he made dinner reservations etc. for us. As a guest, you really feel welcome and both Daniel and Dan were very helpful – nothing was too much trouble for them. Every morning there is a homemade breakfast... More

Rarely somebody compared us to heaven. But we like the idea! thank you so much for your feedback. We love to show our guests - particularly if they are new to Ptown- what to do and what to see. There is so much more than just beaches, entertainment and shopping! We are also happy that you liked your room, which... More

Benchmark Inn is a terrific getaway where the lovely Swiss hosts, Dan and Daniel, have literally thought of everything. Rooms are very small but modern and beautifully laid out--with just about every amenity you could ask for. Tasty, healthy breakfast (with a home baked goody on offer every morning), awesome Swiss espresso machine, beach chairs/'brellas to borrow. Two blocks from... More

Thank you Elizabeth for your lovely review! In fact, Provincetown is getting more and more discovered by European travelers. And as we speak fluently German, French and English, a lot of our guests are happy to talk to us in their native language. And this gives the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, too! All the best,... More
