Any body home?

I made a mistake with my reservation dates -- so I really didn't have a room reserved when I arrived! In fact no one was at the inn -- except a phone number on the door. But Dale came by, settled me in (after I had apologizing for my error) and made me feel very welcomed! Thank you from a very weary traveller!!

Beutiful, Modern, Warm Room

55th Birthday Stay

Our host, Dweep, was very friendly, informative, and made our stay enjoyable. The room was clean and inviting. The sink in the bathroom needs to be replaced or repaired (crack in bowl). The tub was deep enough for a nice soak, but there were no bath salts and I would have enjoyed a large bar of soap versus a soap dispenser. Bed was too firm.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for sharing your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We do our best to stay on top of all maintenance issues. We had in fact ordered a lovely new sink and vanity for the bathroom which is being installed this week. We are pleased that you enjoyed the tub. Bar soap in addition to the dispenser soap is available in every bathroom. We also have a range in sizes and firmness to chose from including rooms with Tempurpedic mattresses which we would be happy to help you identify the best fit for your next stay. Sincerely, Tom, Owner at the White Porch Inn

A lovely off-season getaway location

5 on March 24, 2017

I have been a customer of The White Porch Inn for five or six years now, and I never look any farther when I am booking an off-season stay in Provincetown. It is lovely. I have several special issues with severe allergies and asthma, and this is one place I never worry about, because I know that the management and staff have taken extra precautions with my room. The setup of the main floor allows you as much privacy as you need if you want to tuck into a corner with a good book, but also invites conversation with other guests. I plan to return a couple of times a year for as long as I expect to be traveling to the Outer Cape.

Liked it enough to come back :)

This was our second stay at the White Porch Inn. Very charming inn would definitely return and have. Love that it is 100% pet free as my husband has severe pet dander allergies. The service is simple excellent. The rooms are a little on the small side for the price but the service more than makes up for it. Would be nice to have a small trash can also in the room and not just the bathroom. Otherwise, lovely! Thank you.

Always a great place to stay!

It's one of the few B&Bs in PTown that looks like gays had a hand in the interior design. Well done. Nice water view from the porch in the summer. Fireplaces in many rooms for the winter. Awful coffee.

Amazing Hospitality

This is our second year staying at White Porch Inn and third year attending the Holly Folly event. Staying at White Porch makes the experience amazing. The service & meals are second to none. We love staying there and can't wait for our next stay.

A place to return to, time and again

I first picked the White Porch Inn almost six years ago primarily because it was open on St. Patrick's Day weekend. Since then, I have returned many times, and it's my favorite place in Provincetown. Cozy, beautiful interior and extremely attentive staff. The fireplaces in the rooms are wonderful.
