Mike, Chris and Mikes mom always make you feel at home. The rooms are very comfortable and each morning there’s a nice continental breakfast set up. The large porch is perfect to have your breakfast and coffee and people watch. Perfectly situated on Commercial Street, close to everything!
My recent stay at the Anchor Inn Beach House was not my first visit, but it had been over 12 years since my last visit, and the Inn had changed owners. Would it live up to the wonderful memories I had from my prior visits? Or was my memory clouded by time? Fortunately for me, my friends, and for all its future guests, my memory was accurate, and the Inn has only improved with age (and with new owners!). My partner and I were there for 2 weeks, and we could have easily stayed for 2 months. As other reviews have mentioned, the Inn is perfectly located on Commercial Street, just a short 5-minute walk from Macmillan Wharf (and the tourist shops), but not too far west where you feel isolated from the wonderful restaurants, cafes, cabarets, and shops that Provincetown has to offer. The Inn changed hands about 12 years ago, and is now run by two lifelong friends, who place an emphasis on service, comfort, and cleanliness. I found them both accessible, friendly, and extremely helpful. We booked 3 different rooms (there were others in our party), and each room was beautifully decorated, comfortable, and most importantly impeccably clean. My partner and I run a couple AirBnb properties in Venice Beach and Joshua Tree and we know and understand how hard it is to keep a rental unit clean, let alone this clean. We were truly impressed, and the cleaning crew deserves a big special shout out (that’s you Andrea and team) for the wonderful job they did. During a summer where most inns are not offering ANY daily cleaning service, the Inn has their regular staff who have worked for them for years at full force. Their efforts were recognized by all in our party, and were very much appreciated. I have stayed at several different inns in Provincetown over the years (Brass Key, Crown Point, Beacon Light, etc.), and none of them are as clean, comfortable and relaxing as the Inn. Two of the rooms we booked overlooked the Provincetown Bay, and were fantastic. If possible, do yourself a favor and book one of the 3 suites on the top floor that overlook the Bay. The view alone is worth the price, and that’s before you fall asleep in the four-post king size bed, after lounging in one of the 2 couches in front of the fireplace. I’ve stayed at 5-star hotels all over the world, and this suite is now one of my top two of all time (the other being a suite at the Intercontinental Fiji with a private pool overlooking the ocean). Trust me, the Inn’s website does not do this room justice…. jus…
To say Anchor Inn was everything I had hoped it would be is an understatement. Everything about our weekend was spectacular. The Inn itself is gorgeous and immediately welcomes you to Cape life. And that front porch - I could spend all weekend sitting in those rocking chairs with a cocktail in my hand watching people go by. The location is perfect- you are in the middle of P'town and all the action, but you never feel overwhelmed by it. The rooms are immaculate and incredibly cozy and well appointed - they each have their own aesthetic and charm. The Anchor Inn team was welcoming, kind, funny and exactly what you would hope for when you whisk yourself away for a summer getaway! We cannot wait to come back next summer!
We stayed at this property in late June midweek. The Beach House is situated a short walking distance from where the ferry from Boston drops you off. We had rooms that faced out onto the water and the King Suite even had a nice balcony with a table and two chairs. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Continental breakfast was served each morning from 7-9am and was more than plenty for us. We also enjoyed the front porch with its rocking chairs and small tables with chairs for enjoying a drink before dinner while people watching. The proprietors are lovely people and are very helpful with recommendations. We would love to stay there again.
After missing Ptown in 2020, it was wonderful to get back and enjoy another relaxing stay at the Anchor Inn Beach House. I had a room overlooking the water and it was great for the soul. Chris and Michael are always lovely hosts!
