I would totally come back here! Very kind staff and clean accommodations. The view was beautiful. Provincetown in March is a great time to be here. One of the things I like is the quiet and the calm. The town has a some great places to eat.

Thanks so much for your raving review! We work very had to ensure that all of our guests have a very special stay! As you mentioned, you especially liked the calm and one of the best things about The Masthead is that it's located in the quiet TRUE WEST END of Provincetown in a residential area, BUT only a ten...

We were incredibly lucky to get a last minute reservation at the Masthead when weather canceled our planned sailing trip to Provincetown. We have often visited Provincetown by boat and fantasized about what it would be like to live in one of those charming waterfront cottages. The three-bedroom cottage was everything we imagined. Quaint, but recently updated with new bedding,...

This place was absolutely great. The staff was accommodating, and the room was clean and comfortable, with a great water view. They helped me when I decided to extend my stay. Price reasonable, as well. Highly recommended.

This place would be so nice if they made the slightest effort to take care of it. The view is great (except there's a big bush in front of the glass door). The rooms are big but there were two flies buzzing around inside and the bathroom was gross. They left the soap from the previous occupants in the shower,...

We stayed in a newly renovated apartment which was fantastic. Great new bathroom, kitchen and décor. The grounds are kept beautifully and the deck along the beach front is fabulous for taking in the beautiful views.

Perfectly located in Provincetown, spectacular view but rooms are dated; the bathroom could definitely do with a make over. Despite this, the rooms were clean and the staff friendly. Parking in Provincetown is difficult and everything is within easy walking distance from the Masthead.

Thanks for taking the time to leave this review. We appreciate your business and are sorry that the unit was not up to par. That said, we are on a very busy schedule to update all of the units and have just finished about 45% of the property with another 25% to be done this spring, so come back and...

Masthead seems filled with sweet stories of good times past, the kind of place with twinkle lights, seashell motifs and other beach themes. Our stay there was warm and inviting with especially friendly staff/caretakers. While the place is worn, the feeling is comfortable and welcoming. A night on the boardwalk with bourbon in hand and full moon shining make it...

We stayed in the Captain's Quarters over the MLK holiday weekend and are very pleased. The unit is very comfortable and has everything we need including a kitchen and a dining area. It has a beautiful view of the waterfront where we watched the sunrise. Great value for a quick getaway

New Years Eve in Provincetown! Three old friends rented this cottage ( #35) for just one night. For starters, we grabbed this because there was no 3- or 2-night minimum. What a find! The cottage is right on the water, has 3 BR, and 2 BA with a huge dining room table, and comfy living room with plenty of seating...

Very dated but good air quality. The noise level from the neighbors downstairs was unacceptable. They were singing loudly from 3-4a.m. The view is spectacular! It was nice to have a full kitchen though the bathroom was quite small.
