We spent about a week at this B&B and had a wonderful time in Provincetown.
The location is excellent, one block off Commercial Street, near tons of great restaurants, bars and shops.
The property is impeccably maintained, very clean, beautiful garden patio, and cozy clubhouse.
Breakfast is included- muffins, boiled eggs, berries, yogurt, basic, but we ate so well in Provincetown, we were seldom hungry at breakfast time.
Three dogs and a cat will greet you at every turn, this never bothered us one bit.
Our room had a very effective and quiet air conditioner, small TV with Netflix (!) and other programs.
Wifi was free and fast.
New England charm and old American furnishings, just like grandma.
Our bed was a FULL, not even a queen, it was tight! read the room descriptions carefully!
The room was small by NYC standards, and there was little, if any room to open a suitcase on the floor, much less two.
The bathroom was across the hall (not shared) but no bath robes were provided, necessitating some fast moves and locking and unlocking of doors on our part. :)
Although I am limited with Ptown experience, our friend's B&B room was about 2-2.5x the size of ours, came with a private deck, ensuite bathroom, fireplace, and a loft with an additional queen bed, for about 25% less than we had paid. All of this made our place seem rather overpriced.
We've stayed at a number of B&B's, and no matter how fancy... or not, the innkeepers are always the heart and soul of the place. We were greeted with a list of rules and warnings about smoking, drugs, domestic violence, and damages. None of these applied to us, fortunately, but it was a rather icy welcome that started us off on the wrong foot.
A few mild suggestions:
Bathrobes for any bathroom not ensuite.
House rules may be necessary, but perhaps writing them down for initial, or having them as signed terms at the time of booking would be best. It made us feel like ex-cons, and we couldn't be further from it. :)
Everyone has different personalities, but it might have been nice to have one of the hosts present at breakfast, for such a beautiful setting, it was completely underutilized and often felt like a ghost town without an innkeeper.
Other B&B's in the area host a happy hour or other social time or event daily where guests can mingle and enjoy the garden, perhaps this would bring some sense of local flavor and community.
All in all we had a wonderful time, and I'm sure you will too.
