We stayed with another couple and enjoyed having a two bedroom suite with a nice living room, electric fireplace and kitchen. This was more fun, more comfortable and more economical than having two separate rooms. The resort is made up of a number of houses right on the beach and it would be awesome to sit on the long deck in the summer and look out at the harbor (we were here in December). We were in 41C which has a limited water view. The only things that weren't perfect - check in is at 4PM and the room wasn't ready a minute before then, and there was no dish towel nor paper towels in the kitchen. Parking is limited, but there's a town lot close by which is free in the winter. We will be happy to stay here again.

Sweet cape like vibe!
This is one of my favorite places to stay in Provincetown. It is quiet and far out on the West End. It is however quite a walk into town. For example, Probably a 15-20 minute walk to the center And obviously further to some of the great restaurants on the East End.
