We stayed 3 days in june 2011 and had a great time in Provincetown. Staff was very friendly and helpful (finding and booking a nice restaurant, advices on sightseeing, etc). Innkeepers were also very friendly and made you feel at home. We loved the breakfast ! The room was of decent size and nicely decorated, a mix of local and...

An amazing place to stay. There are no details that Jarrod, Rainer, Jurgen and Hans leave to chance - the service, the breakfast, the spa, the wine hour, and attentiveness of the staff. A ton of style, elegance, and charm, and generosity. Carpe Diem satisfies every need, whim, desire. Go soon!!!!! Nancy & Amparo

Rainer, Jürgen and Hans are delightful, gracious hosts with welcoming personalities and an unfaltering emphasis on service. Extraordinary attention to detail is evident from the sparkling clean accommodations, to the wine hours, to the delicious breakfasts prepared individually each morning. Although I did not have the opportunity to enjoy the Namastė Spa, I am certain it would have been a...

This is how hospitality should be - a welcome on arrival, a lovely room, "wine and cheese o'clock", a delicious breakfast, newspapers, books - all served up with a smile by staff with a helpful and happy disposition. The Carpe Diem is owned and run by people who want to be in the business of hospitality. The staff is entirely...

I could not have been more pleased with Carpe Diem. My husband is disabled and the staff went of their way to accomadate: moving cars to create the shortest walk to our cars. The rooms have great attention to detail in addition to having the fun theme of different writers through out the facility. There is hook when you reach...

My partner and I once again had a wonderful stay with the guys at Carpe Diem. They set the tone for a relaxed atmosphere and make sure that everyone is having a positive experience. The location always works for us since once we arrive, we do not have to drive to get anywhere we want to go. I had a...

We stayed for 2 nights in May 2011 and loved every minute of it. Carpe Diem is two houses joined by a common courtyard. The rooms can be small (Parker) to large (Shakespeare) but all are well furnished, clean and comfortable. The location is perfect being just a block from P-towns main street. Breakfast is cooked with a different special...
