We loved staying in the Isabella Rossellini cottage. Perfect for a couple with two children. Amazing view. Comfortable chaise lounges. Beautiful landscaping. Owners and office staff so gracious and accommodating. Highly recommend!!

Back from my 11th year at the Masthead:) Still love it --amazing location with its long deck overlooking the water (or the beauty of low tide, depending on its ebb and flow), close proximity to the Breakwater and Herring Cove beach, and not too far from town. Clean rooms with ongoing improvements from year to year, and helpful staff:)

For a last minute reservation, it was cozy. The room #6 was a bit small for two people, but it was just for me (1). It was clean, neat and yes cozy. I had a beautiful view of the sunrise! The deck had chairs, tables, umbrella and loungers that face the ocean. It was beautiful. I had to share a... More

Aug. 17-18-2016 Nice room with a beautiful water view!!! We couldn't get the tv on, Bed was very confortable. Nice deck area overlooking the water. No one around to help with the tv. Parking is limited, we had to park at the Provicetown Inn and walk back to the hotel.

I seriously don't know how they can call it a "resort", has absolutely nothing of such an accommodation. No bar or restaurant. No swimming pool but you've got a bay view which is nice when high tide is in, otherwise the view is quite desolate. We were on the second floor and had difficulty hauling our luggage up the steep...

Staying at the Masthead was perfect. Our cottage had a great view and was clean and cozy. We were just steps away from a nice walk on the beach and a block away from downtown activities, shops and restaurants. Everything you need is walking distance. The staff was friendly and helpful. We highly recommend THe Masthead and plan on returning... More

A very quaint compound of cute cottages at affordable rates. Customer service needs some improvement from some of the staff but Thaddia at the front desk stepped up and made up for it, the bed was comfortable in 31A with a small kitchen and tiny bathroom but very doable for a long weekend. A good affordable option to PTown but... More

I just returned from a 2 night stay at The Masthead, we were in a room w 2 queen beds, & full kitchen. I believe it was room 41. It was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. QUIET, ON THE WATER. A short walkway to a private deck/pier with a small beach. The views are amazing. About .50-1mile... More

We just love the Masthead! We have stayed here for many years. It's located in the beautiful and quiet West End. It's simply The Best waterfront property in P-Town. Its long deck with comfortable chairs and umbrellas, right on the water, make for great relaxing and viewing of the amazing sunset light that P-Town is known for. It's a great... More
