Distinctive Inns of Provincetown Highlight: Carpe Diem Guesthouse and Spa

Perfect hospitality its about the people – Welcome to the Carpe Diem Guesthouse and Spa!

Whoever stays at Carpe Diem realizes right away what the secret of this luxurious yet cozy accommodation in the heart of Provincetown is: The people working at Carpe Diem enjoy what they are doing – that is making sure each guest feels special and welcomed, which explains why many come back year after year and soon feel more like friends than mere customers.

The property at 12 – 14 Johnson Street offers 19 rooms, each with first-class amenities and private bathrooms, some featuring fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. Besides modern conveniences like free Wifi throughout all the buildings and sound machines in the guest rooms the management cherishes also traditional friendly gestures as a Port and sherry table in the living room, a 24-hour-coffee and tea station in the breakfast area and a very popular Happy Hour with distinctive wines and artisanal cheeses so that guests can socialize, make plans for the night or just enjoy some time together at the inn.

Overall, the complex with its tranquil patios and Zen-inspired gardens displays more the atmosphere of a cultivated and stimulating spa resort than an old fashioned B&B. All day guests have access to the adjacent Namaste Spa, which offers a variety of body treatments, massages, reflexology, aromatherapy, scrubs and wraps and includes a Turkish Bath, Finnish Sauna, and Spa Tub. On top of that Yoga and Pilates classes are offered daily in the large meditation room. All massages and body treatments can be booked through the reception of the inn either at a part of the room reservation (take note of the great deals in the spa packages) or during the guest’s stay.

Given its quiet and relaxing character, it is surprising that Carpe Diem is just a block away from the excitement of Commercial Street, allowing quick access to all the fun, while letting you get away from the bustle whenever you want.

Food aficionados will be happy to learn that a daily gourmet breakfast is included in the room price featuring freshly baked goods, muesli, cereals, fruit, yogurt, cold cuts, and- according to many guests – the best coffee in town. Also available each day is a “breakfast special”, which depending on the whims of the chef can be waffles, pancakes, quiche, or other hot delicacies. Don’t miss out on the eggs cooked to order. The Carpe Diem keeps around 90 chickens at the Carpe Diem Farm, to provide the inn with the necessary supply of absolutely fresh eggs. The farm is located only ten miles outside of town and from its vegetable garden come a good amount of the summertime produce and herbs used at the inn as well.

The property does feature off-street parking, a scarcity in P-Town (please limit one car per room – no trucks or large vehicles)!  Bike storage is also offered – remember biking is a great way to get around town.

To preserve the tranquility and cleanliness of the inn, smoking and pets are NOT allowed. If your four-legged friend does need to join you on your vacation, local boarding is available at KC’s Animal Resort just a mile from the Resort.

For a truly relaxing and sensual visit, consider the Carpe Diem Guesthouse and Spa and enjoy first-class amenities, a legendary breakfast made fresh each day, access to great spa treatments, and Provincetown hospitality at its best!
