Carpe Diem Guesthouse & Spa
Ranked #6 of 64 Provincetown B&B and Inns

Reviewed August 13, 2010

The hustle and bustle of Commercial Street attractions a block away. Beautiful beaches, endless sand dunes, or whale watch tours minutes away. But this B&B is so pleasant and hospitable you could find yourself not wanting to leave the property. Rainer, Jürgen, Hans, and their staff provide the friendliest and most accommodating atmosphere my wife and I have experienced. The main breakfast table beckons not just for the sumptuous food, but the daily conversations with the other guests. There is something very special about the human interaction at Carpe Diem. 5 PM wine and cheese hour offers more time to converse with new found friends. Add the respect for privacy, when wanted, to lounge in the Japanese flavored courtyard, the on grounds spa, on on your private deck/patio, this place excels. With all that Provincetown offers, Carpe Diem is it's shining star.

I stayed at this B&B with my fiance (we got engaged on this trip) 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The friendly and professional staff make you feel welcome and at home. They offer top notch service. The B&B has nicely decorated and clean rooms, and the suite is even nicer and more private. It has a beautiful spa and gardens that make for a relaxing experience. It is just a few steps away from the center of Commercial St, so restaurants and shops East and West are a very close walk. The breakfast is amazing-- fresh, good ingredients are used and daily special is offered. The Carpe Diem only enhanced a very happy and memorable ocassion and experience for us! We will be back, and are already recommending it to others. Thanks to all the staff at Carpe Diem!

Stayed in the Oscar Wilde room for a weekend getaway. Quiet and comfortable room with private entrance and chairs outside. Breakfast is fresh and they make eggs and pancakes to order. The complimentary wine hour was a plus as well, drinking wine in the garden was peaceful and relaxing after spending the day walking around town. Staff was friendly and helpful.

This was my first trip to Provincetown with my partner and we both felt right at home at Carpe Diem. They had everything we needed or wanted, from fresh baked bread and muffins in the morning, to umbrellas and beach chairs. Rainer, Jurgen, and Hans are a great team and treat their guests with such warmth. Andrew loves to feed everyone and won't let you go hungry at the start of your day. Our room was very clean, had a small kitchenette and balcony. The courtyard and spa were truly an oasis. We look forward to coming back and can't wait!

My partner and I had a wonderful time thanks to Carpe Diem's owners and staff, who made us feel welcome from the get go. This B&B is beautifully maintained and offers a generous, delicious breakfast every morning plus other lovely amenities. And its location couldn't be more convenient. We met some very nice people during our week stay, who we intend to stay in touch with. We'll definitely return to Carpe Diem on our next P-Town visit.

Of the several places I've stayed at in Provincetown, Carpe Diem continues to be the best.
I've stayed here three times and each time never want to leave. The owners and most of the staff are so kind and welcoming. I did have a problem with the new spa director who had a bit of an attitude with me and a few of the other guests (who wants a massage from someone who is not friendly). Fortunately I figured that out before booking an appointment. The breakfast that is included is amazing, with daily specials ranging from waffles to crepes, and there was always eggs to made-to-order, fresh fruit, homemade muffins, cereal, breads, yogurt, juices, coffee and tea. They also offer wine and cheese hour from 5pm-6pm which is a great time to meet other guests. The grounds and rooms are kept immaculate. I'm looking forward to my next visit to Carpe Diem.
