I just arrived to the resort. The room was small but we could manage. Looked up at the ceiling and found bugs. I opened the bed and had some kind of stain or dirt. Didn’t want to touch or even see what it is. I locked the door and left the place. No one to help you after hours. Stay away! I wish I can do zero not even one

1st week open and the Masthead didn’t miss a beat. Love the new “no contact” check-in and texting systems. The grounds looked great, the staff was well trained and Covid precautions were evident everywhere on the property. Our family stayed in 41A and 41C and both were pristine.

Thanks so much for your wonderful review! We've been preparing for the opening to make sure that guests enjoy a CONTACTLESS EXPERIENCE from creation of the reservation to check out. The technology that we have acquired allows all messaging with out guests to flow through text messages and the results are fantastic. The deck at the Masthead is prepared for socially distant sunbathing, reading and relaxing! Please come back again and enjoy Cape Cod's Only Old Cape Cod Experience at The Masthead Resort & Cottages! Safe Travels!

Really need to keep up the property . The rooms were small and the bathroom was poorly appointed . Would never stay here again. . And your stairs are hardly operative for the disabled . The view was however beautiful .

The stay was sensational. I loved the friendliness of everyone. The view was great. Everything was great but the parking. Its quite far if you cant get a spot on property and you have to walk with things. But other than that it was PERFECT!!!!

Another memorable trip to Provincetown after a long year and a half without traveling. The masthead is one of our favorite places on earth. Great location, quiet end of town, relaxing deck on the water, within walking distance to anywhere and every staff member is friendly and accommodating. We have been coming for more than a decade and hope to return again soon.
