I love ptown and Ptown is the first place where my boyfriend and I took a trip to. So we got married on Saturday and decided to go here as a 'pre' honey moon since we both work and could only take off so many days. The inn is well located and that is as much positive I can say... More

My husband and I stayed at the Salt House Inn for two nights in early July. Upon checking in and seeing our room, I appreciated the airy aesthetic and thoughtful minimalistic design elements. Perhaps it was our room choice (#7), but I felt as though some elements of comfort were sacrificed in achieving this minimalistic experience. As travelers embarking on... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Jenna K. Like all of the buildings in Provincetown, our historic 19th century building has retained fabulous character and a few quirks after it was converted to an inn. This character also contributes to our varied room types and subsequent sizing. Our Superior Double room types (like Room 7 that you stayed... More

We stayed at the Salt House Inn for 7 nights in June and we cannot wait to go back next year! Kevin and David are charming and helpful hosts, and they made our stay all the more pleasant. The location of the Inn is ideal, 5 minutes walk from the pier where the fast ferry drops you, and a couple... More

We wish you were still here too, Krystal! I appreciate your note about how amazing our location is - far enough back from Commercial Street that you can enjoy a peaceful and quiet stay, but only a block away from all of the action! Nikki and Barbara do a fabulous job keeping our rooms extremely clean, and we appreciate your... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the Loft Room and enjoyed every minute. I'm pretty fussy, being a designer, but this place lived up to my hopes and expectations. The bed was huge and fantastically comfortable. The shower room was very well equipped with lots of products, fluffy towels etc. But most of all I loved the simplicity of... More

I am enthralled to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay in The Loft! I am glad that you enjoyed the complimentary C.O. Bigelow bath products (aren't they fabulous?!) and our inn's design and aesthetic. Our breakfast menu changes daily, and has a balance of both savory and sweet treats with a focus on sustainable, fresh, and local ingredients -... More

This is second year I have stayed @ the Salt House and it is indicative of my love for this place that I have booked for a third time in 2015. For me, the customer focus is exemplary.

I read what I now view as an over-inflated puff piece from Boston Spirit magazine that described the "luxury" property that the two co-owners transformed from previous owners last year. Upon arrival you face a open rock pit of a parking area surrounded by overgrown gardens that don't seem to have been cared for as no pruning or weeding is... More

This tiny inn is 2 blocks from Commercial St. The rooms are small, but great quality and super clean. Attention is paid to great customer service and every experiential detail. The breakfast was outstanding! The only thing left desired was a strong cup of coffee.

Thank you for your kind words and invaluable feedback, VHowland. Our 15-room inn is the perfect size to allow us to tailor every personal detail of each guest's experience to ensure that you have an enjoyable and memorable stay.

My fiance and I spent the weekend at Salt House Inn and we really enjoyed ourselves. Breakfasts were made every morning (and so yummy and healthy!) and we absolutely loved Kevin! He was extremely accommodating, friendly and helpfull, as was the rest of the staff. Rooms were very clean and chic ;-) Look forward to staying there again.

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to host you for your recent visit to Provincetown and for your kind review!
