Our stay was great! Although we were only able to stay for one night, we had a lovely night of rest and would definitely recommend the inn. The owners were very kind and accommodating, free parking was provided by the inn, the household was very quiet and peaceful, and the rooms were very comfortable and nicely-adorned! The free breakfast provided the following morning was also delicious and made us feel at home. It was a great place to stay for a more personal touch during our Provincetown stay.

We needed a one night gateway out of the city and The Somerset House in the early Spring was perfect.

Wonderful place; perfect in town location; great hosts

We had always stayed in the West End, but this was a delightful change. it was great to be able to walk to restaurants and shops and still be able to easily bike to the beach. our room was small,but very cozy complete with a fireplace. the decor is tastefully funky and fun and the hosts so nice and helpful in every way. Both breakfast and happy hour treats were also excellent. we will surely return.

perfect place in provincetown

Had a truly lovely getaway weekend off-season (which I'm now convinced is the best time to go), and staying at the Somerset House Inn could not have been a better choice. We met wonderful people, the food was absolutely mouthwatering, happy hour was the happiest, and our room was so cozy it was difficult to decide to get up out of bed and into town (fireplace!!). It should hardly have been a difficult decision, since you literally walk out the door onto Commercial Street and everything P-town has to offer is at your feet. Will definitely be coming back; I can't think of any reason I would want to stay anywhere else.

Very nice house and great breakfast!

My partner and I stayed at the somerset house for 5 days and really enjoyed waking up to the great breakfast smells in the house. The view is great as you sit outside to have your breakfast and all the guests were very friendly. The host is very informational but does not intrude on your stay - a very nice balance. We will stay again. :)

This place is spectacular! Every need was taken care of. All the rooms are individually decorated and nicely appointed. The food was all freshly prepared and delicious. The service couldn't have been better. I felt completely comfortable and at home. I'll definitely be back.

Outstanding service, good location

The accommodations are very clean and of good quality, not five star but good, and the breakfast excellent. The outstanding service is the high point here.
