This was a wonderful place to stay after completing the Pan Mass Challenge! My partner and I were able to enjoy the hot tub and I took a soothing bath in the large bath to melt away the pain. The Inn is within walking distance to many restaurants and shops as well as the beach, and free parking and a bike rack make the stay less stressful. The bed and linens were very comfortable and the room temperature was just right. There are lots of places to lounge in the garden area and a serene atmosphere to relax and rejuvenate. Breakfast in the morning was great—they offer a few egg selections, coffee, tea, juices, cake, and pastries as well as fruit and granola and there are seating options in and outdoors. I had a massage on site and the staff were quite generous allowing us to stay a little longer so we could gather our things to check out afterwords. My only suggestion is a few more racks or hooks in the bathroom so that all the towels and robes have places to dry!

What a gem!! I take credit among my group of friends for finding Carpe Diem. I’ve traveled the world, in many luxury hotels, country cottages, etc (so I have perspective) —and I’m a snobby NY’er…. this is such a special place to stay. The location is perfect, the rooms are clean and fresh (the bed and pillows are so comfortable), the staff is friendly (present when you need them, and also perfectly in the background.) This is the most charming B&B in Ptown…. booking my spot for next year
