Award-Winning Provincetown Bed and Breakfasts

We don’t like to be egotistical.  But once in a while, we do like to toot our own horn.  The Distinctive Inns of Provincetown is proud that our member inns continue to provide first-class accommodations, atmosphere, and hospitality to their guests!  And we aren’t the only ones who think so.  Our members continue to receive recognition and awards from some of the best-known sources, both locally and nationally.  Today we would like to recognize these achievements, and hopefully help you understand why staying with us is the best choice during your Cape Cod getaway!

Recognition comes in all forms.  Our guests regularly post reviews on some of the big travel sites, helping to get the word out to others – sometimes these reviews result in awards from travel sites.  Local and National publications pick their favorites to feature, and we’re always thrilled to find one of our members on these lists.  Occasionally, we will discover (after the fact) that we have unknowingly hosted an inspector/evaluator for an elite group!  No matter what the source, these acknowledgements are testimony to our hard work and commitment to providing guests with the best possible lodging experience.
