The resort staff was so friendly and helpful and the room was really clean. I would 100% stay here again. It is only a short walk from the town center and the beach. I could not have been happier. The resort also sits right on the beach.

My wife's family has been staying at the Masthead for well over 30 years and I've been staying there with my family for 25. Why? Because The Masthead is perfection. Situated right on the harbor--and depending on the tides with the sands a few steps away (perfect for a stroll) or the ocean lapping beneath your windows--the various cottages are...

Great getaway and opportunity to chill. Room had a giant bay window to watch the tide go in and out. Lovely view of 3 lighthouses and the moon and stars. Quaint lodging like Cape Cod should be. Close to downtown shopping and attractions. Room was well equipped with fridge and microwave. Bathroom a little tight but clean and manageable. Location...

It is quite a simple hotel but worth the money. The beds were very confortable, with microwave oven. Quite good service. Though had to ask for towels. The location was quite central. Well equipped kitchen.

I stayed one night here in the second week of May, which is still in the off season. Everything was perfect, I was extremely satisfied. The room was clean and comfortable. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff. They were very helpful and kind. I hope to return in the near future.

This is the second year in a row we have come to Provincetown for our Mother's Day Girls getaway. We looked around but chose to stay at the Masthead again since the last visit was so nice and we absolutely loved it again! We requested the same room with an ocean view but got an upgrade because of some renovations....

Two things make this hotel a bad choice. One is the lack of parking. We had to park at another hotel about 1/3 of a mile down the road. The second thing is the total and utter lack of care taken at this hotel. It's just pervasive. The lack of service combined with the rooms that look like they built...

In 1959 our Father, John J. Ciluzzi purchased the Masthead Resort & Cottages. He built a wonderful business that has been enjoyed for many generations of guests. He created a impeccable reputation for delivering a OLDE CAPE COD experience in the best location on Cape Cod, the west end waterfront of Provincetown. Sadly , the Patriarch of The Masthead passed...

One of my favorite properties to visit! The cottages are so cute and cozy. The location does not get better than this...within walking distance to all of the fun on Commercial Street but far enough away to be calm and serene! The entire staff is pleasant and accommodating. Feels like going home.

I rented the one bedroom cottage (#33) for a mostly solo trip to Provincetown. I had a friend in Boston who stayed over the weekend. The cottage was perfect for both my solo time and for having a guest. It has a separate bedroom, spacious with comfortable bed and nice sized closet. The living room has a sofa bed that...

Thanks for choosing us and thanks for the great review! Cottage 33 is what we call THE BOATHOUSE, just steps away from the water and a great spot to relax in solitude. Your description of the location to points of interest is PERFECT! Also, thanks for letting us know that it was CLEAN and the staff was CHEERFUL AND HELPFUL....
