We chose to celebrate our first anniversary at the Carpe Diem based on the great reviews we found on TripAdvisor and we quickly discovered that there's a reason so many people give this place glowing reviews! P-town is known for its summers, but we loved our off season adventure. Living in Boston, I thought I was completely sick of the... More

This two night stay in the middle of what seems to be the worst Winter ever was really great for us. We celebrated my wife's birthday in a very quiet setting - not a lot of people in the town at this time of the year and with the tranquil scenes of Provincetown - a lot different than the Summer...

Totally loved this place. Very accommodating. Wonderful pastries. Would return in a heartbeat. Our room was very nice and the gardens and spa area was lovely. Offered movies and books for the guests. We were invited to stay at a friend's the last night and they were ok with us cutting our stay short by a night.

I stayed here solo on a weekday night in the middle of March 2014. The town was completely quiet and peaceful, and I felt absolute comfort, safety, and personal attention from the owners and staff. Everyone there had a serious sense of pride in what they do, and it was demonstrated clearly in every aspect of my stay. The amenities... More

Laurent v, Owner at Carpe Diem Guesthouse & Spa, responded to this review

Obviously we were very delighted to read all the nice comments about our property but also shocked to learn that our guest had to endure such an embarrassing and painful situation on the day of her departure. We are investigating at this moment who was working for us last year in March and will make sure that the individual who... More

We had a great couple's Winter get away. We left the 8 foot snow banks in Boston to sit in a delicious hot tub and steam room. Close your eyes - there is no snow - there is no snow. Our room was clean and lovely. Breakfast was first rate. Afternoon wine and cheese went beyond expectations. Our host, Rosa,... More

My fiance and I stayed here in June 2014 after a long search for a romantic bed and breakfast in Cape Cod. Carpe Diem was nothing short of excellent and accommodating. We had a gorgeous room, delicious breakfast, and everyone at the inn was fabulous. We actually got engaged on our second to last night here and the staff was... More

Carpe Diem is one of those rare inns where you feel both completely at home and special. Recently they expanded the spa area, and are adding a second sauna. The owners and staff are unswervingly professional, observant, kind, and helpful. The rooms are wonderful, the breakfasts sumptuous, the wine and cheese hour a delight, and the atmosphere one of calm... More

Stayed just before Thanksgiving and I couldn't say enough about the staff and owners. They were very accommodating and made our stay wonderful. The location is perfect for exploring the town and is walking distance to shopping and restaurants.

We recently spent three nights here, and we did not want to leave! Everything was fantastic, from the reservation process with Eddie to checking out with Jarrod. Hans was gracious and kind. The breakfasts and snacks were delicious (and plentiful), and the women who prepared the meals were friendly and attentive. Our room (Marcel Proust) was spacious and immaculate. The... More
