My husband and I just spent a few days in Provincetown and stayed at the Carpe Diem Inn. I cannot say enough great things about this place. The whole facility is beautifully decorated, the staff are absolutely fanatastic and the accomodations were comfortable, relaxing and luxurious. The morning breakfast was delicious, there's nothing like farm fresh eggs and homemade preserves to start your day off right. Plus, we met some great people during the daily wine hour in which a variety of wines and cheese were provided. The location of the Inn couldn't be more perfect, less than a block from Commercial st where all the shops, galleries and restaurants are located. Overall, the trip was a huge success and we intend a return viist in the near future.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed the Marcel Proust room

My husband and I took my parents (in their sixties) on a trip to New England and chose Carpe Diem for our two night stay on Cape Cod. The b and b was quite nice enough (tiny rooms that are smaller in real life than on the website photos however).
We all wanted a quintessential Cape Cod experience in a quaint town with cute shops and restaurants as well as beaches etc. We didn't want a Key West type touristy town. If you are looking for the same, pick a different town and avoid this crazy scene.

Our first trip to P'town to relax, renew, and celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The house was beautiful with much attention to detail, the garden and spa very zen, and the staff was more than helpful. Each and every staff member made us feel welcome and did everything they could to make our stay that much more special by recommending and booking restaurants, offering hiking paths, and booking massage and rest. Breakfasts were fabulous, daily wine and cheese terrific, and kind care for staying in-room too. My husband and I truly loved this place and would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Our room was not large but the mattress was nice and firm and well appointed!

Our second stay at Carpe Diem (our first was summer of 2011) was as enjoyable as our first and we’re glad we chose it for our 2012 Provincetown trip.

Our room (Robert Frost) was lovely but our bed was smaller and firmer than we’re used to - that was a minor inconvenience, however given how much we really liked everything else. The style and design of the room (and the stylish bathroom) made up for any shortcomings in the bed, and we enjoyed the views of the Pilgrim Monument from the windows and the convenient location of the room to the rest of the property. The 5pm wine and cheese hour was below our room and we greatly enjoyed relaxing under the grape arbor with old and new friends - it’s a real highlight of a stay at Carpe Diem.

If we had to identify one thing that makes Carpe Diem what it is, we’d have to say it’s a tie between the property itself (the interior courtyard is lovely, relaxing and quiet) and the staff/service (the entire team is professional, friendly and top-notch). We loved our second visit and will likely stay at Carpe Diem again next year.

This past week, my husband and I travelled down to Provincetown and stayed in what has become our 'must-stay-there' spot. This is a B&B which stands apart. We are treated like family, Breakfasts are out of this world, coffee/tea available all day plus wine and cheese, and a chance to ask other quests where to eat, served at 5. Nothing is left to chance.

Room Tip: There is a good website which shows the rooms. Because this is an old house, rooms are somewhat smal...

We booked last minute for a much needed relaxing getaway; the staff was more than helpful, they were fantastic! Great breakfasts (Tish rocks!), super clean room, hot tub, wine hour...and the location is unbeatable. We'll be back!
