So many great aspects. Location is probably #1. On Bradford, but one block from the top of the MacMillan pier. Only a few minutes walk from the galleries of the East End or all the fun heading west on Commercial. The home is beautifully decorated with a truly eclectic collection of art. The enclosed front porch is a nice place to have a snack, a read or to have breakfast. Breakfast is continental plus, including proteins, like eggs and yogurt, in addition to a variety of pastries. Then there are the rooms. I checked into Room 10 for my first night. It is on the third (top) floor with a shared bath and no air conditioning. It included a large box fan which cooled the room nicely. I would say this room is best for 1 person, given its size, but it is fine for a couple if you don’t plan on using for more than changing and sleeping. I then moved to room 5 on the second floor which also has a shared bath, but includes a window unit air condition. This room is next to the bathroom, which had me a little worried about noise, but with the ceiling fan and air conditioning on, you couldn’t hear anything. This room is definitely big enough for two and the related luggage you probably will have. Beds in both rooms were very comfortable and I didn’t have any trouble sleeping, which is uncommon for me. Now, on to the shared bathrooms. Both were very clean and it was only an issue getting access one time in my four and a half day stay. And when it was, I just went to the third floor shared bath. Towels are ample. Parking is provided, although limited. It is a short walk to get from the parking, which is in the back of the property, on another street to the entrance of the B&B. The owners were flexible about booking different rooms and were responsive to any questions and issues. In summary, this is an excellent place to use as base camp for Provincetown – whether it is to just explore or for one of the theme weeks so common throughout the summer.
