What a find. The property itself is beautiful and hidden behind what you see from the street is a fantastic, quiet courtyard with lots of shade and comfortable places to relax. The rooms are well maintained and very clean. We stayed in Dorothy Parker room. The breakfast setting is warm and friendly and the food excellent. Best of all is... More

This is my 15th year staying at Carpe Diem. This summer I stayed in the Tennessee Williams room. As always, it is excellently appointed and maintained. The hosts are so friendly and attentive, you feel like you are staying with friends. This year they have added a new person to the breakfast staff, Rossa, and what I thought couldn't get... More

This retreat is only a few blocks from Commercial Street and all the buzz and life in the main street walkway, yet it offers true relaxation and zen within its property. We knew when booking and when walking in that this property was a gay friendly if not focused place. But when we arrived, as a heterosexual married couple both... More

The warm, friendly staff attended to every detail, creating for us a sense of calm belonging and comfort. From delicious hot breakfasts to thoughtful wine and cheese each afternoon to luxurious sheets ... And the spa! ... every aspect of the experience was excellent!

Knew I was going to PTown, but was unsure of where I was going to stay. Found this place via Hotel Tonight on my iPhone. Blown away is an understatement! Checked in while the hotel was having afternoon cheese and wine. Check-in process was streamlined and a quick tour was given to familiarize us with the facilities, while also allowing... More

My husband and I stayed here for our recent 10-day vacation and had a marvelous time. The owners and staff are welcoming, friendly, and consistently take care of every little detail. The large gourmet breakfasts are spectacular, as are the goodies in the afternoon. The beautifully landscaped grounds and spa provide a quiet retreat from the craziness of Commercial Street... More

My partner and I went here for a last minute long weekend. The place is quite lovely. We had the side cottage which provided us with a lot of privacy. The staff is very thoughtful and attentive. I am gluten free and brought my own bread. The wife of the couple who manage the properly and the owner had said... More

I stayed at Carpe Diem the third week of July 2015 in Provincetown this year before heading to Boston for the tail end of a two day vacation. I have stayed at several guest houses around the country, and I can easily say that Carpe Diem knows how to make you feel at home away from home. Jurgen, Hans, and... More

It felt like we were visiting family. Everybody was caring, kind, considerate, and genuine; from owners, cooks, to cleaners. Amazing breakfasts from their on-staff chef (Rasa), everything made from scratch (breads, pastries, waffles, various egg dishes, sauces). We even had green eggs (from the fresh herbs) and ham. Various wines, crackers, and cheeses each afternoon. Rooms beautifully equipped and very... More
