Had the pleasure of staying at The White Porch Inn for 2 nights. Had never been to Provincetown and did some research on where to stay. Was thrilled with my choice when we checked in. The Inn is beautifully decorated and the staff was very friendly.
The location was perfect. Close to everything. Took the ferry from Boston and only had to walk a few blocks to the Inn.

My friend and I travelled from The Netherlands to USA and with friends we stayed 3 nights in the White Porch Inn. We just loved it! It's very clean, beautiful decorated, in the center but very quiet and last but not least, Matt is a wonderful host! We had a great time and we can't thank him enough for making us so much enjoy our staying. Matt, we love you!

What a wonderful B&B. We have stayed at numerous locations in Provincetown and the White Porch Inn is by far the best. The house is totally renovated with excellent taste. The staff especially Matt are friendly and helpful. Look no further as The White Porch Inn is the best. Great Location, Great Service and Great Service

This was quite the treat for our week in Provincetown. The Inn is situated at the east end on a quiet residential street ....yet 1/2 block to the action of Commercial Street and a 5 minute walk to the town center. With gourmet restaurants within a block or two...and harbor views from the relaxing, comfortable and well appointed porch.....this elegant yet homey bed and breakfast is a complete delight.....with decor and furnishings tastefully elegant with much attention to detail.

Our room was quiet, cozy and extremely comfortable. Even though it was July and we didn't use the gas fireplace......it wasn't hard to imagine how romantic the glow would be on a cool fall or winter eve. The soundproof windows added a calm privacy. Delicious and imaginative breakfasts were served each morning.....every morning a different menu...but always fresh fruit, breads of all types, hot steaming coffee, cold cuts...and a hot dish. One morning the hot dish was a delicious combination of eggs, cheese and vegetables....a puffy, cheesy casserole. It was mouthwatering good. But none of this compares to the warm and gracious inn keeper....I believe his name was Mat....whose welcoming friendly manner and knowledge of the town, the evening entertainment, the restaurants and points of interest ....it seemed his only aim was to provide each guest with well versed recommendations tailored to the individual, couple or group. Yet he was never intrusive....but seemed to always be available for suggestions. We tried quite a few of the restaurants he had recommended.....and had some delicious meals...within a block or two of the Inn. We enjoyed our week stay and will definitely be back.

We would have had fun in Provincetown anyway, but the warmth and excellent service at the White Porch Inn made it truly wonderful. Matt is a treasure, exceptionally knowledgeable about restaurants and attractions. He's got a great sense of humor and has a perfect sense of when to be engaging and when to leave one alone. The Inn is perfectly placed just off Commercial Street, so there's not street noise, but it's one-half block to all of the action. The breakfasts were delightful, with lots of choices every day, and a special dish each morning, excellently prepared. I will definitely stay here again, as I really appreciate it when I find a place this special. I'm sure I could find a place a little cheaper (though not much for this quality), but the slightly higher price is definitely worth it.

We spent 4 nights at the end of July at the White Porch Inn. It had been recommended by a friend whose first time there was on a P-town traditional house tour. Matt, the concierge knew we might be late so he was courteous enough to call us on the road to tell us, again, where the keys would be if we arrived late. Morning breakfasts were lovely and again everyone was extremely helpful. The only problem we had was with two overbearing guests who screamed and chased everyone away during the 4-6 pm, previously announced, inn tour.They embarrassed the rest of us sitting on the porch who had no problem with the women standing on the porch. Matt handled the embarrassing wituation with perfect aplomb. If these men did not like the noise, they should have left. Because the rest of us were having a great time.
We would definitely stay there again. Not only because the place was so well decorated, spotless and friendly but because Matt was the perfect host.
