From the moment I arrived, I felt like Chicago House was home. Craig was amazing--warm, friendly and doing everything in his power to make me feel comfortable. Yummy continental breakfast, old-world charm, a comfy bed, air-conditioning as needed, and wifi. Who could ask for anything more. (and btw, don't worry about sharing the bathroom if you take one of the...

Mediocre old BnB now that there are new owners that aren't on site . After staying there a few years in a row, will never go back. The live in employee is only there to do a job and couldn't care less about customer's concerns

The proprietor, Chris is a real gem. He bent over backwards to be accommodating and is a really sweet fellow. The house itself is what I would refer to as 'old school Provincetown'. This is like a home from home, especially if you are an animal lover - there are two dogs and a parrot that also live in the...

The Chicago House is in the perfect location--practically in the center of town but on a side street so you're away from the heavy traffic of Bradford and Commercial Streets. The rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. The front and back porches are great for relaxing, reading, or chatting with old and new friends. Breakfast stays out all morning and...

Every now and then you get to visit a place and you feel like your home. Christopher and Quin, the Irish wolfhound are not just your hosts. They are family away from home. Homey and relaxing. In the center of town but still quite and inviting. You can stay elsewhere but why would you want to. 😀

Centrally located and easy to access but clear of the busy never ending traffic of Bradford and Commercial Street. Clean, inviting and cozy house full of New England Charm. Chris is the best host and caters to every need. Short walk from everythin, the ferry, food, bars and museums. Room includes parking and additional parking at the museum is closeby....

I have been staying at the Chicago house for a good 10 years now and always consider it first. Chris runs the place professionally and in a friendly way. This is my type of place: no fuzz, clean and an excellent location. For Ptown, Chicago House offers affordable rates. Consider a stay at the Chicago House and enjoy the hot...

What do they always say about real estate? Location, Location, Location! The Chicago House couldn’t be in a better location. It is a quick walk from the ferry and very close to all the stores, restaurants and bars. Not to mention that Chris, the inn keeper, runs a very respectable and clean bed & breakfast. Plus he is very personable...

I have stayed here on numerous occasions, and this last minute stay, like any other, did not disappoint. Chris is a charming and engaging host, and the Chicago House offers you the chance to stay in the quintessential Cape Cod home. The rooms are comfortable; the porch give you a place to unwind; the expanded continental breakfast gives you sustenance...
