But a quite oasis with a great garden and spa. The staff could not more accommodating and helpful. Don't miss the delicious breakfast or the wine hour. These are usually at best mediocre but Carpe Diem above any expectations. Old world charm wit may 21st century sensibility. Our 4th stay.

Everything about this B&B is fabulous: the tranquil Zen Garden, the Spa Area, the location (quick walk to attractions and restaurants), the friendly staff, the AMAZING breakfast, the best coffee ever, the fresh flowers, the sherry put out for evening night caps, the wine and cheese gatherings every evening... The spa area (clothes optional) was wonderfully relaxing and clean. We... More

This place was a dream come true. It was amazing. My partner and I spent our 20th Anniversary there. We had a traumatic life experience and thought that we would not make it to 20 years but this place brought us back to reality and gave us the connection we needed. With the atmosphere, the privacy, the hospitality and the... More

Carpe Diem is a lovely B&B. The Stanley Kunitz room was cozy, private and very well pointed. Breakfast was wonderful as well as the wine/cheese social. Warm and accommodating hospitality but not too intrusive. The steam rooms were amazing and the outdoor Jacuzzi was a nice touch too. We stayed for a weekend during off season so Provincetown was a...

We were thrilled with our two - night stay at the Carpe Diem Guesthouse. From the moment of our arrival (with our son and his girlfriend), we were welcomed with open arms. The facility is lovely and peaceful with various options for quiet indoor and outdoor reading, conversation, and relaxation. Our visit started with a great wine and cheese session... More

The company honored it with no hesitation which said a lot about the type of business people they are....Awesome...!!!We were so pleased with the room, the service and all the friendly staff. As luck would have... More

My wife and I couldn't have experienced a more enjoyable time than our recent stay at Carpe Diem. Some places take efforts to make your feel comfortable, but it is a rare few that go the extra effort to make you feel truly at home. Not only did they accommodate our late check in, but they still took to the... More

This is one of the nicest places we have visited over our years of visiting Provincetown. Every inch of this fine establishment is classy, clean & tasteful. We stayed in the Edgar Allen Poe room. It was immaculate and every detail perfect from furnishings to fabrics to a lovely tea selection. All of the staff were friendly & professional. Breakfast... More

We stayed at Carpe Diem three nights after the Boston Marathon with a group of five from the Netherlands. My wife and I were here in 2010 before the Marathon and decided to come back with friends. We all were very pleased with that decision. Carpe Diem has it all! Beautifully decorated and impeccable clean rooms (this applies to the... More
