We stayed at Carpe Diem last week based on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. Aside from the excitement of Cher staying across the street (yes really - because Carpe Diem was fully booked and refused to throw us out for her - although we did offer to bunk with her!), the rooms are fantastic we...

Thank you so much Mario for your review. All of us here really appreciate it. We would have loved to have hosted Cher for her Provincetown trip but I couldn't ask any of my guests to leave in order to accommodate her. We are very glad you enjoyed your trip to Provincetown and enjoyed your stay here at Carpe Diem.... More

We have been coming to Carpe Diem for 15 years. This year was another exceptional vacation. We love the room we stay in, and we were pleased with how the new owners added their own flair to our room and 13 other rooms at the inn. Stephen and Paul have worked very hard to give the space their own feel,... More

Cannot say enough good things about Carpe Diem. Stayed there last year with my wife but this year, because my wife was on a business trip, stayed by myself. The setting cannot be beat. Loved just relaxing in the courtyard in the shade with quiet music in the background. Had two of the best massage treatments I have ever had.... More

We have been coming to P-Town for years and this is the only place we stay. The owners and employees feel like family to us. The rooms are comfortable and its just far enough off Commercial Street to be quiet yet walk out the door turn left and there is the bay a few places down.

Once again, my husband and I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at CD. We really couldn't ask for nicer owner/hosts than Paul and Stephen. It is obvious, that they love what they do, and their hospitality shines through! The rooms are freshly painted and papered, with more room to move around due to smarter furniture choices. The breakfast (healthy and... More

I have been staying at Carpe Diem for over 12 years - and recommend it to highly. There have been a few changes with new ownership this year - most of them to keep the place up-to-date and in step with being a 5 star location. The internet works GREAT now (something that was needed for a few years). Guests... More

Have stayed and day-visited several times. The cottage is wonderful - spacious room, bath and patio. Very clean. Perfect location. Superb spa - ask for Leslie (the best massage I have ever had! "read" my needs through touch and I left feeling like a different person). Eddie adds a super friendly touch and Danny is very talented in the kitchen.... More

Very nice establishment with owners and managers who know what they're doing. Our room was on the smaller side, but very comfortable and quiet despite being close to the street. Great extras like wine and snacks in the afternoon, and very nice breakfast in the morning. Thank you for a romantic getaway!
