Just home from a fabulous weekend at the Masthead Resort and Cottages. The location was absolutely perfect ; took a 3 mile run in the am with a view of the jetty and the dunes, walked into town for lunch/shopping/sightseeing and returned back "home" to spend the afternoon

A group of friends and I were heading to P-Town for a show which was going to end pretty late at night. P-Town is a two-hour drive from us so we decided to make a trip of it and stay the night. My friend found a cottage that was near the water and it sounded perfect. Turns

Thanks very much for this very kind review! Did you know that we have some floater homes on the property? In fact, 37 Commercial Street has a rare blue and white plaque with a picture of a home floating on a raft. Known as a “floater home”, this historical plaque indicates this building and about 30 others in the West End of Provincetown were originally a residence of the Long Point in the early 1800’s, the outer beach peninsula across the harbor. Home to more than 200 residents on Long Point, there was a school, a post office, a bakery and a lighthouse. The biggest appeal was its proximity to abundant fishing grounds.However in 1850, after assessing the many challenging facets of living on the outer beach, mainly the challenges of being so isolated and remote, susceptible to storms and high tides, residents decided to move the homes. They literally raised and placed them on rafts and floated them across the harbor to their current locations. Next time you come back, please look for the blue and white plaques around the area and on our property that identify the FLOATER HOMES! Come back soon and we look forward to seeing you! Safe Travels!

Actually, I'm sorry, but I'm not sure about the a/c. I don't think they have a pool. My room had a full kitchen, but not sure about the others. Sorry.

Hi. Is it allowed to smoke outside? Thank you.
People appeared to be doing so, but as a non smoker can't confirm facilities.

small well behaved dog?
I am not sure. Since the cottages are individually owned some may and some may not. You would have to ask the management.
