This is a beautiful guesthouse close to the water and many great restaurants. Has a fantastic continental breakfast and a zen-like back patio area. The hosts and staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. We were there over the 4th of July weekend and they had a more relaxed minimum-night policy than anywhere else we looked at. Shared bathroom was no... More

We booked at Christopher's because of the value for the room and because of the hosts, Jim and Dave. Reviews were good. We enjoyed our stay at Christopher's because the 2nd floor Picasso room and bed were very comfortable. The bathroom was well stocked and everything on the property was very clean. The house was completely booked but always quiet.... More

This has been our yearly return visit to Cristopher's by the Bay. We wouldn't want to miss it (we already asked to be penciled in for next year!) Jim and Dave should extra credit for providing a new air-conditioning system, that seemed to be less noisy and the WiFi functioned without a single hick-up. It was tough to pass on... More

Got back from an 8 day stay at Christoper's and once again, they outdid themselves. I'd stayed at other guest houses in Provincetown,and while we enjoyed ourselves, the service, quality of care and attention to our needs at Christopher's far surpasses all of our other experiences. We've stayed here at least a half dozen times, and will do so a... More

This review is long overdue! I had stayed here for wedding and enjoyed it so much, I extended my stay for a full week. The rooms are clean, cozy and comfortable and the staff couldn't be more courteous. I am just booked there again for a birthday in town.

Very nice breakfast, great hosts, reasonable prices, parking, and you can walk everywhere. Christopher"s By The Bay has a great location for dining, shopping and walking around town. We couldn't have made a better choice for our dollar.

My room was small and on the third floor up some fairly steep steps. I would suggest the older folks ask for a room on the first floor. I had a small room which was clean and comfortable. It had a fridge, TV and DVD player. The wireless worked well. There was a telephone and clock radio. Bathroom was a... More

I highly recommend a stay at christopher's by the bay. We spend 2 nights with my wife end september in Rembrandt room. Comfortable and well-kept room, excellent service and amazing healthy homemade (banana cake or egg and ham) breakfast. Dave and Jim are hospitable, welcoming and always willing to help you.

The hosts were helpful and hospitable and the B&B had charm. The hosts had some good suggestions for our Dunes tour and even lent us a blanket for us to use while we watched the sunset. There were no vacancies available while we were staying there, yet it was so quiet it was as if the place was empty. So... More

I have stayed here twice and the staff are the best and try to accommodate any need. The surroundings and common areas and breakfast are great. The rooms are nice and well equipped, but I would definitely avoid the shared bath rooms on the 3rd floor. there are too many rooms sharing one bath with one single toilet. there was... More
