We spent 5 nights at the guesthouse & found it relaxing & cozy. The owners & all staff we had contact with are so welcoming & helpful. The breakfasts are different each day, timely ( if you are on a schedule) & good. The evening (FRI. & SAT.) "happy hour" is great. Our only "not so good" was our room....

Dear Carol Thanks for the review, we are glad you enjoyed the breakfasts and weekend wine and cheese hour. Yes some of the rooms are small, we do have a variety of room types from classic queen rooms to larger king rooms. We hope to see you again another time at Carpe Diem Guesthouse. Thanks Stephen, Paul and the team.

This small inn and spa (18 rooms) was absolutely perfect. Beautifully appointed rooms, very attentive and friendly staff and a great spa area. We did use the hot tub and saunas and they were great. They offered and individually prepared breakfast for us. Danny, the chef, is phenomenal and very accommodating. The inn is just a few steps the main...

The couple that runs this place does it with great care and make you feel like a valued guest. The Spa is amazing with steam room and dry sauna. We received a couples massage which was one of the best I have ever had. In the evening they put out a nice spread of appetizers and the breakfast is delicious...

My girlfriend took me to this B&B/spa/guesthouse for a birthday weekend. We had an amazing time, and stayed in the Oscar Wilde room, which has a beautiful bed, fireplace, and even a glass walled shower. The architecture in the room is fascinating; windows, beams, and a private entrance. The keys have brass stamped fobs, and have a weighty joy that...

Arriving in Provincetown on the ferry from Boston, the Carpe Diem is a short walk (or taxi ride). Crossing the threshold from the buzz of the town to the tranquility of the guesthouse, I relaxed immediately: I was on holiday now! The welcome was warm and helpful. I was shown up to my room - though a bit of a...

Starting with a small glass of port or sherry upon entering and ending with great breakfast every morning really made this Inn stand out from the rest. First time to Ptown but won't be the last time visiting Stephan and Paul. And of course our day wasn't complete if we didn't run in the Eddy once a day. Thanks, you...

My husband and I loved our room, with its kingsized four poster bed, gas fireplace and beautifully appointed bathroom. The courtyard is peaceful with fountains, plants and exotic statues. The spa treatment I had was so relaxing, the specialist, welcoming and very good. Breakfast was delicious in a beautuful and bright dining room. We will definitely be going back.
