Cape Codder Guests
Ranked #44 of 64 Provincetown B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 September 2011

I have lived, worked, & vacationed in Provincetown for over 20 years. I have stayed at numerous guest houses as well as running one there. Yes, of course if you want to spend $150-$300 per night you can find some amazing properties better than the Cape Codder. However, for the absolutely beyond fair price..the Cape Codder is a steal! First of all private parking & private beach are definately a rare luxury in P-town! The rooms are spotless & simply charming. The bathrooms & showers are very clean & there are plenty for everyone to share. The continental breakfast is simple but tasteful. It is always peaceful & homey. Deb,the woman who has been running it for a couple decades, is very pleasant & helpful. I have to say she is the hardest working woman in town. If you're looking for a jacuzzi & chocolate on your pillow you won't get it there. What you will get is warm hospitality,a clean peaceful surrounding & alot of extra money in your pocket. 3 nights at the C.C. = 1 night anywhere else. ITS A STEAL & A DEAL.

This B&B (www.capecodderguests.com) is located significantly from the town center (with its bustling restaurants, clubs, shops, and street performers) in a quiet location. The house (which took me a few days to warm up to) is quite old and has no sound proofing (footsteps can be quite audible). There are 10 rooms on the second floor which share only one shower stall, one powder room, and two bathrooms with period tubs. (There are also rooms on the first floor). It would not be a costly investment to outfit the tubs with shower attachments which would make showering less competitive during peak morning and afternoon hours.

Lighting in the rooms and bathrooms is sparse and dim which makes shaving and reading a challenge. Again, a simple, effective solution would be to add a light fixture and to increase the wattage! Small bars of soap are provided – guests bring their own hair and skin products. The B&B is kept quite clean.

My room (#8) which is in the rear has two full-size beds with cross ventilation and seemed to be on the cooler end of the house. It has period wall paper and brass beds that are painted white, although a simple coat of paint would conceal the unmistakable chipping paint. There are no closets but there is a sizable dresser and hooks. One does not need much in the way of clothes in P-Town.

There are other rooms with cross ventilation including the petite room 6. The corridor midway through the building can be quite hot, which leads me to assume that rooms 10-14 may also be hot, although this is not a solid fact. All rooms have large fans to compensate for the lack of air-conditioning. There is a communal refrigerator along with a microwave oven. Unfortunately, there is no communal living room or place to congregate should the weather be bad. There is free Wi-Fi available, although it did not extend to my room.

Breakfast included coffee and an array of teas along with bread, rolls, and muffins. It would not be terribly expensive to include some fresh fruit.

The jewel in the crown of The Cape Codder is their private deck on a quiet stretch of beach (on the bay side) which is outfitted with lounge chairs and picnic tables. (I am not sure if the grill was for public use). The water is very swimmable as there are no waves, and there were no crowds. It is a treat to use the deck at night to star gaze (bring bug repellent).

The proprietor seems to have overlooked this property as it would benefit from several simple cosmetic changes as suggested in this review. If one can accept this venue at face value it is certainly both a practical and economical alternative to other B&B’s in P-Town.
