I have been staying at Christopher's by the Bay each summer for almost a decade. The hosts are welcoming, the breakfasts and outdoor setting are a great way to begin the day, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. A great choice!


What a way to spend July 4th!!

This little guest house offers a great experience when traveling to Ptown. The guys who own and run the place are friendly, helpful, and non-invasive. The property is tastefully decorated and very tranquil. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. I've stayed here before and wouldn't hesitate to return. Location is ideal to town.


A wonderful week

Dave and Jim run a great B&B. My room was great and I loved having breakfast every morning in the back garden. I will be back!

Lovely room on the second floor; quiet back patio; Breakfast adequate, though not special. GREAT location - just off commercial street, and very well located for everything.

Fabulous Visit

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

5 on November 02, 2016

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.
