Our cottage was clean and cozy, with white beadboard and quaint decorative touches. The view of the harbor was incredible; we could sit with our morning coffee and watch the sun sparkling on the water. In the evening, we watched the full moon rising over the harbor. The sitting area was great for relaxing, the bedroom was comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Can't wait to go back!

Hotel's Favorite
I haven't been to the Masthead in several years but I was happily surprised at all of the updates that were present when I arrived! The owners have updated the reservation process and have made everything seamless with the new system. A text let me know where to park, where to arrive, and a map of the property prior to arriving. I stayed in cottage 35 and the view was even better than I remembered. The staff were helpful and let us know all of the spots to stop in on Commercial street. The suggestions were excellent, the cottage was clean and bright and the kitchen was brand new! Great for byob/wine and setting up some snacks while sitting on the porch prior to dinner. It made the trip so great to know everything was set for arrival, and no hassles at check in. The property is second to none for views and an easy walk to everything on commecial street but far enough removed to be away from the hustle and bustle of the P-town night life. I was there with friends and family, but this location would work for anyone!

The Masthead Resort is perfection personified. The grounds are beautiful and a warm feeling of community permeates the resort. This was the second time this year that we stayed in the cottage directly on the beach and we look forward to booking another visit. The cottage is spacious yet cozy as well as clean and offers a homey feeling. We love how you can wake up in the morning and sit on the porch with tea or coffee and listen to the soothing sounds of the bay. We also appreciate the contactless service and we understand that it can be difficult to pull off but we were very satisfied with all the service involved. We highly recommend Masthead.

Seamless from reservation, to check-in, to stay, to check-out. The beauty of historic cape cod steps away. Awesome sunrises, sunsets, calm, water steps away, and lighthouse sightings. Stay and recharge your batteries.

There is no place like the Masthead anywhere else. It's charming and nostalgic yet modern with thoughtful conveniences. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the view of the harbor and lighthouses is breathtaking. Waking to the sound of the waves is heavenly and lounging on the deck with a book is so relaxing. Just like the rest of the area, the grounds and flowers are beautifully manicured. It's just far enough from downtown that it's quiet, yet, it's right on Commercial Street. The walk to the shops was my favorite because you wander by all sorts of gorgeous houses and yards. We're already looking forward to going back next year. The Masthead is truly like a little bit of heaven on earth!

Back from my 16th year at the Masthead. I return for the quiet mornings on the very large, beautiful deck; walks way out on the flats in low tide (or delicious walks along the shore in early morning), quiet evenings listening to the water lapping on the shore... Also a short bike ride to Herring Cove Beach or into town (can walk to both as well), and very short bike or walk to the stunning Breakwater.

Dear Anne, we really appreciate your feedback! Your annual return speaks volumes about your experience for new guests so thank you for being one of our loyal costumer. As you mentioned, because we are located in the West End of town it makes it very easy to access to one of the main public Provincetown beaches, which is Herring Cove. We also hope you have enjoyed the upgrade of the bathroom in your favorite unit efficiency 31A. As always we look forward to seeing you soon again at the Masthead!

The cottages are cozy and the boardwalk nice to view water although a bit ugly when the tide is out. Quiet place. Cottage 39B shows its age. Each one is different. We were there with a group who had their own courage and was interrupted by a wedding coming in so tents blocked out view. There's only 5 pkg. Spots do best to park at the lot and rent bikes. The place is a bit removed from downtown so lots of walking. Good beds and nice sheets. Full kitchen. No paper towels. I felt it was a bit expensive for older cottage.

We have been staying at The Masthead for 15 years and it never disappoints! The deck overlooking Cape Cod Bay where you can see Wood End Lighthouse and Long Point Light Station is just phenomenal. Walk the flats for what feels like miles when the tide is out and enjoy a gorgeous swim right off the deck at high tide. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown to enjoy some peace and quiet, then put on a good pair of walking shoes and hit Commercial Street for great food, shopping and galleries! The owners have been making updates to the property over the years and it’s really helped to make the property feel more comfortable, with renovated bathrooms, kitchenettes and living room furniture. We can’t wait till our next visit!

Me and my husband came here for a weekend and had a great experience. It was clean and even had a brand new renovated bathroom in our condo. We enjoyed the close proximity to walking down commercial street as well as being right on a private beach that included Lounge chairs and a nice deck, complimentary ice for our cooler. This was also an affordable option for us in the peak of summer. Would go back again!
