This B & B is right in the centre of Provincetown a few yards from the MacMillan pier. Although the address is Commercial street it is in fact up about 30 yards up a small alleyway which means that it is very quiet. There is a small carpark for guests accessible from a side gate. The house and garden are immaculate. Michael, the host, has clear ideas of design and his attention to detail ensures that every corner of this property inside and out oozes good taste. Breakfast is limited to very good coffee, croissants (or muffins), and instant oatmeal (surprisingly good), and the bedrooms are not as large as some we encountered on our tour of New England, but that is reflected in the moderate rates. In addition to the room, known as the captains quarters, we had use of a nice front porch with a view of the sea. Michael is able to offer some discount on the essential trips in Provincetown, eg, whale watching and cycle tours, and is happy to give advice on restaurants and other matters. Michael's sense of humour keeps the house going in a relaxed atmosphere and ultimately creates an ambience of relaxation and peace. Millie, who cleans the rooms, is a delight. Highly recommended.
