My girlfriend and I stayed at Carpe Diem for one night and we loved it! It's extremely tough to find a place to stay for one night in the hot summer season of P-Town. I was initially looking for less expensive motels around North Truro and P-Town but couldn't find anything. Carpe Diem happened to have an open spot for...

I went for four days because I wasn't sure I would like a b&b. What a mistake. Wish I had stayed a month. Great food, staff, rooms, and people. Fantastic service with attentive staff. They seem only interested in how they can do to make your stay perfect. They don't overdue things that would distract from your serenity time.

Near the busy downtown Commercial Street, tucked away on a side street, this is a quiet and serene property. We received a warm greeting and a brief guided tour of this bed and breakfast - through a quiet courtyard/sitting area and the breakfast rooms to our snug and comfortable room. Everything is well kept and the breakfast offered every morning...

I read the reviews on Trip Advisor before I booked our stay and I have to say the reviews were true. The staff is not only accommodating but welcoming & eager to help. From the cleaning staff, kitchen staff, and front desk/inn keepers. Our stay was every bit of enjoyable as I could have hoped. I ordered flowers upon booking...

"Wunderbar!" This was our first time to P-town and the Carpe Diem was welcoming after our travel from Baltimore, everything that one would expect. Hans was our greeter and kindly took us on a tour of the beautiful rooms to the outdoor sitting area and finally ending at our room. The door opened inward to hardware floors with a queen...

Have been to Carpe Diem a few times. The staff are very nice. The breakfast in the AM is nice. Straight or gay, people all seem welcomed. The afternoon wine and cheese is a nice touch. Rooms are comfy. Close walking distance to all the hot spots. If I could change one thing, a miracle would happen and there would...

My partner and I spent 5 nights at CD and loved every minute. The decor is spectacular and the spa is outstanding for a small operation. The services offered are varied and they use excellent materials. My partner's sister works at Encore in Las Vegas and while the spa does not match that, it comes close. I would not be...

The Guesthouse is nicely appointed with all the little conveniences you would expect, and want. Its location is just a few steps from the main street in Provincetown yet the guesthouse was always quiet at night and restful. Breakfast each morning was a buffet of meats & cheeses, breads and cereals; a special each day (german pancakes, eggs) was rounded...
