The Guesthouse is nicely appointed with all the little conveniences you would expect, and want. Its location is just a few steps from the main street in Provincetown yet the guesthouse was always quiet at night and restful. Breakfast each morning was a buffet of meats & cheeses, breads and cereals; a special each day (german pancakes, eggs) was rounded...

What an incredible find! I have travelled the world and the Carpe Diem is one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed.

It is pristine, elegant, stunningly furnished, impeccably clean with the most remarkable and amazing staff and proprietors you could imagine....

The overall experience was wonderful. We wanted to relax on our vacation and Carpe's commons area provided a quiet, comfortable ambiance. The social breakfast and wine and cheese hour were great to get to know our fellow travelers and our hosts.

The Carpe Diem is absolutely perfect. We are very particular in out accomodations. Hans is the ultimate in customer service and the two Inn owners are amazing in their involvement with daily operations. This is one of the finest places we have stayed in Ptown.
