This was our fourth trip to Carpe Diem and each one was great. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is outstanding. What really sets Carpe Diem apart is the owners and staff. They are genuinely friendly and work hard to make your experience a good one. Highly recommended!

I spent 3 days here in early October and could not have been more pleased. Innkeepers Jurgen and Hans are utterly charming and they run a wonderful establishment. No detail is overlooked -- from delicious homemade breakfasts to mouthwash and body lotion in the bathroom. The inn itself is lovely. Plushly but tastefully appointed. It also incudes a tranquil spa...

This was our second stay at Carpe Diem and we were not disappointed as we knew we would not be! The friendliness of the staff together with their genuine interest in their guests comfort is the reason we came back. The breakfasts are excellent, in particular the daily specials. All the rooms have their own style as does the Spa....

My wife and I stayed at this Inn for two nights and didn't want to go home afterwards. The hosts have created a zen-like courtyard space, conducive to relaxing or socializing, adjacent to their integrated spa and yet just a block from shopping and strolling along Commercial St. Rooms were tastefully appointed, with terraces on the courtyard for easy access...

Carpe Diem was a wonderful place to stay in Provincetown. We had a fantastic stay, the team are great, the home cooked breakfast is a joy, and the themed rooms are just wonderful (we were lucky enough to stay in two of them). Also enjoyed Namaste spa treatments which was divine. this is a great place to stay, and if...

This place lived up to the billing. We had high expectations from the reviews but they were met across the board. From the quality of breakfast, the wonderfully themed rooms, the attentiveness of the staff, the fun-filled communal cheese and wine hours to the fantastic spa - it was all top quality. Everywhere we went in Provincetwon they spoke highly...

We stayed with Hans, Rainer and Jurgen last year and felt as though we'd stepped into a well-written short story -- a house party so incredibly well-hosted, you almost forget you aren't a personal friend. This year we stayed in Oscar Wilde, with it's second floor light spilling into golden and sky blue furnishings from three walls of plantation shuttered...

We chose this B&B due to its excellent ratings and we weren't disappointed. The room was nice and comfortable with great charm. Juergin's breakfasts were wonderful. And, they're straight-friendly! My wife and I enjoyed their hospitality, wine tastings and port. Plus, it's in a great location, close to everything. A great place to stay in Provincetown.

We stayed for three delightful nights at Carpe Diem in P-town. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. When we arrived, we were instantly welcomed with wine and cheese and given a brief "orientation" tour of the Inn. The relaxed and welcoming spirit of the place was obvious during our entire stay. The indoor and outdoor spaces were all very pleasing and...
