The perfect place to stay in Provincetown

4.8 on June 06, 2015

The hosts were welcoming, helpful and friendly; the rooms we engaged for two couples were in the separate building, each with its own entrance, and lovely. Breakfast was great, different each day and included a hot entree. Restaurant recommendations were tailored to our preferences and were perfect. Location was ideal, we walked everywhere. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else on our next visit!

Excellent Stay at The White Porch

4.8 on June 01, 2015

From start to finish our stay was perfect. The WPI is really well located and the deck you access from the Hatches Suite that we were in was a great place to watch over the town and out to sea from on high. Breakfast was excellent too. The only thing that was a little unusual was the Tempurpedic type memory foam mattress in the room. It was interesting to try, but I don't think Id buy one for home even though I slept just fine on it.

Pristine Inn

Our stay at the White Porch Inn was perfect in every way. The Inn is spotless and very updated. We got amazing dinning recommendations and loved how close its located to shopping and restaurants. Will definitely be back!

Cant Get Any Better

The White Porch Inn is now our go-to for Provincetown stays. We have at least one mandatory off season stay here a year and would not think of anywhere else to go. Tom met us at the door with a smile and gave us the run down of the Inn and all the great stuff around. Cant say enough good about it!

Fantastic, Spotless, Friendly

5 on January 23, 2015

From the moment we walked through the door we were made to feel welcome and relaxed. Dale was the consummate host. The artwork was beautiful and really fit well with the decor. We stayed in the Wood Room which was perfect for us. Comfortable bed, warm fireplace and inviting deep whirlpool type tub. Everywhere you looked the place was spotless and looked brand new. The morning breakfasts at the kitchen table were filled with conversation with Dale and his wealth of knowledge not only of the area but other ideas for trips we had for the future. His skill in cooking the perfect pancake, eggs and waffles showed his talents well beyond just those of running the B&B. It was a pleasure to stay there and when we left we felt like we were saying farewell to a friend. We will undoubtedly be returning for another stay.

Great stay!

My partner and I have stayed in Provincetown on a number of occasions, but we both agree that this property was by far the best that we've experienced. The staff was welcoming, friendly, and quite helpful with ideas for dining, shopping, entertainment, etc. Breakfast was delicious and having tea and other refreshments available throughout the day was nice. The accommodations were outstanding. We stayed in the carriage house and the room was light filled, had a fireplace, and was impeccably clean. What a great way to ring in the new year!? We will definitely be back!

Highly recommend. The staff was fantastic:)

Great inn for off season

3.6 on December 11, 2014

The place is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The room is small but well put together. The place is very clean and the atmosphere is very chic. Really not for the person who wants to party. A couple of negatives: there is no parking other than a couple of cars for the whole 9 room inn. Also I thought the inn keeper had an aloof and snobbish air about him. It just didn't come across as welcoming - although he is a nice person. Will definitely stay there again. Great romantic place to go in the off season

Winter Wedding Escape

4.6 on December 11, 2014

My husband and I wanted to elope and get married in Ptown in December and so finding a venue presented some challenges. After trying to work with a number of different inns (some of whom didn't call back or respond to emails) we found the staff at White Porch Inn to be extremely responsive and very accommodating. They helped us select the right room for what we were looking for and made recommendations to help us plan the rest of our weekend. The room was very nicely furnished and extremely clean. Everything worked as it was supposed to and the staff was very kind and welcoming throughout our stay. We would definitely recommend it!
