Quick two night escape to the Cape, ended up in P-Town and checked out a few places, they either were not on the water or ridiculously expensive. Found the Masthead and checked it out. Got a nice little room in a double cottage closest to the water. What a great little place we lucked into.. to start with, one of...

This place is fantastic. it is very conveniently located and right on the ocean. The rooms are very homey and lots of room. Love the very rustic beach feel. The staff is fantastic and very welcoming. I would definitely stay here again!

We had a second floor room with a great beach view. From your bed lying down you are looking at the horizon. The room is equipped with a fridge and a microwave. Large bathroom. Walking distance to the Provincetown yet located in a very quiet area.

Stayed there just before the busy summer period with a family of 4. Newly renovated cottage which was very nice. It is located far away enough from the bustle but close enough to walk to the restaurants and shopping. Great views right out the door. Would stay here again!

Even though the staff was great, the property really needs some updating. I realize it is advertised as "quaint", but just be aware that it is outdated & could use a good interior cleaning & refurbishment. Surprised Trip Advisor gave it a "3". Good view & location, though, right on the water.

It was amazing to wake up and look out the window and see the sunrise over the sea. Head down the charming streets to get your morning coffee at the local deli and sit by the sea and enjoy you breakfast. It's an extremely friendly atmosphere and I would go back any time.

Very small room in Provincetown. Room was clean, but when we made the reservation we were doing it thinking that this was a typical hotel room. The room did not have a private bathroom, it was shared with the other 4 rooms on the same floor. Also, parking was about a 1/4 of a mile from the hotel. It was...
