The cost of a room is lower than the average Provincetown price. There are many places in town where you will pay more and get less. Breakfast features an assortment of cereals,...

I came for a weekend and have returned 3 to 4 times each year for the past 3 years. Dennis (manager) came to pick me up at the Ferry - Bob (owner) was standing on the porch to greet me - That rainy day became filled with warmth and comfort. Dennis goes the extra mile for his quests. He is...

I recently stayed at the Shiremax Inn with two friends for a couple nights. The location was perfect - it was right off of Commercial (main street in P-Town), so we were able to walk to bars, restaurants, the beach, etc within minutes. Dennis was very friendly and accommodating, and gave us ideas of what we should do and how...

Nestled in the “fabulous” West End in P-Town close to the Coast Guard Station is the no longer best kept secret guest house known as The Shire Max Inn. This home away from home continues to grow in popularity managed by Dennis Grundlock who will likely charm you and make you laugh daily. When he is not managing the Inn,...

Just had an amazing stay at the Shire Max Inn. Dennis is an awesome and fun host who makes all of his guests feel right at home. The location of this Inn could not be any better as it's walking distance to all of P Town's bars, restaurants, shops, shows etc.. I'll definitely be coming back to the Shire Max!

Dennis is a wonderful host and the location was perfect... Close to the beaches, restaurants, and clubs. We recommend anyone to come and see for yourself what kind of place this is. I love waking up to a complimentary breakfast and coffee in the morning. Overall it was a nice getaway for us.
