Fabulous Visit

5 on November 03, 2016

Staying at Christopher's by the Bay was a great stroke of luck. I had looked at B&B's in Provincetown and something struck me about Christopher's. I am so happy it did. The location is perfect. Easy access when getting into town. Then, easy walking to everything in town from the location. My wife and I absolutely loved it. To top it off, when we left, I left a small bag by the door. I was called promptly after it was discovered so that I could return without going too far, Thank you so very much for a wonderful visit to Provincetown and for the wonderful accomodation.


Home away from home

We have been traveling to Provincetown and staying with Christopher's By the Bay for a few years now. It is our home away from home. The owners are like family and treat us as such. Thank you Jim and Dave for always making our stay a memorable and comfortable one.


Nicest place to stay in Provincetown

My stay was 2 nights during Spooky bear. It is centrally located, clean, comfortable, and well worth the money. Owners are true gentlemen....always willing to make you feel comfortable.

Christopher's was a fabulous place to stay. Great location to hit all the shops and restaurants. All a short walk away. Room was great and nicely decorated. The hosts were exceptional. Will come back to stay here again.


Wonderful place to stay

This is one of my favorite places to stay in Provincetown. It's clean, cozy, warm and friendly. The back garden is a nice sanctuary.


Very pleased

Although our room was not very large the location is exceptional and you don't want to spend that much time in your room anyway. Rooms are very cozy and comfortable and especially enjoyed talking with the owner and guests. Breakfast was great.

The rooms are not fabulous but this B&B taken as a whole is. Wonderful location on a quiet street; a lovely garden where you start your Provincetown day with a good breakfast and have some relaxing quiet time; also a comfortable common room for cooler, rainy days; two great guts as your hosts who love and know a great deal about their town. I stayed there for the Tennessee Williams Festival and had a relaxing little nest to fly about for several busy, busy days. Look forward to staying at Christopher's next year. Andy -Newport, RI
