We stayed at the Carpe Diem this past weekend from the 6th-8th Jan 2017 (in the Marcel Proust room) and it was hands down the best mini-vacation I have had, ever! Right from the off-set my husband and I felt so welcome and Eddie and the team were all so friendly, making us feel so comfortable and relaxed. The food...

If you're visiting Provincetown, you MUST stay at Carpe Diem! Steven and Paul are the most thoughtful business owners we've ever met. Prior to our stay, we had a couple of questions--they responded in minutes! The entire property is beautiful...even during the winter months when we visited. The entire staff is amazing and incredibly friendly...we've never felt more welcome anywhere!...

My husband and I just got back from a wonderful weekend in Ptown staying at the Carpe Diem. This was our first time in Ptown for New Years and our first time staying at Carpe Diem. We were familiar of this guesthouse from our past visits to the Namaste Spa and decided to experience the Carpe Diem for New Years...

We come every year for New Year's. It is always great. Relaxing and comfortable. Great to reconnect with other repeat guests. Eddie and the other staff are always helpful with restaurant recommendations and other suggestions.

Hands down excellent. Accommodations, staff, location, and amenities. Exremely well managed, little luxuries all around, yet homey and down to earth feel. Wonderful balance of top notch guesthouse that still feels like you are staying with a gracious and thoughtful friend. Been here a few times. Never reviewed before because giving Carpe Diem accolades seemed redundant. Read other glowing reviews...

Paul, Steve and the entire staff did a great job of making us feel at home and cozy during our stay. They serve the best breakfast in the morning with plenty of options for even the pickiest eater. The room was cozy and warm and felt more like staying at a friend's house rather than a hotel. Being a New...

Very nicely furnished room with all the amenities one could want. Fantastic breakfast offered. Great location near the center of town, but on a quiet side street. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating.

Carpe Diem is one of those amazing indulgences that must be partaken. We actually got married in the Thoreau Cottage back in 2008 and have been back a few times now. Not only are the rooms gorgeous, the grounds are stunning and the spa is a gem. We have stayed in many properties in Ptown but Carpe Diem is the...

On a recent exploratory trip to Provincetown, I booked a last minute deal directly off of the Carpe Diem website. Based on the description, Carpe Diem sounded like a perfect place to get away for a few days of R&R and it certinaly did not disappoint. The property was beautiful and the vibe upon arrival was extremely soothing and relaxing....

If you're going to embark on running a B&B then please contact Stephen and Paul at Carpe Demi, these guys have got it just right! Yes, it's costly $256 / £202 for one night but let's see what you get for you dollar / pound! The perfect hosts these guys were so welcoming from the moment we arrive, our room...
