For a peaceful Provincetown escape, drop anchor at Anchor Inn Beach House. A TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, this is a laid-back stay that puts you near all the Cape Cod fun, while also serving as a quiet retreat from the action. Begin each day with a delicious complimentary breakfast. Then proceed to the terrace or the garden for a few lazy hours of sunbathing or reading – the daily newspaper is also complimentary.
You’ll certainly want to spend at least a little time off the grounds, of course: taking a dune-buggy ride, going for a sail on a schooner or whale watching. (The inn staff can help set up all three outings.) There’s also the Cape Cod National Seashore nearby, not to mention restaurants, galleries, bookstores and antique shops. Make a point of catching an epic sunset over Race Point, at the tip of the Cape. But also be sure to turn in early, to maximize the time you can spend in your airy, inviting, hardwood-floored room, complete with a private entrance or crackling fireplace.
Your room is an airy, hardwood-floored oasis, with a spa tub, a fireplace, a private entrance or some combination of the three.The Queen room, with one queen bed, holds both a fireplace and a balcony overlooking Provincetown. You’ll lose the fireplace but gain a private entrance, as well as a refrigerator, in the Queen room with ocean view, which is on the ground level and offers a view of the bay. For double the amount of space, opt for the King studio with ocean view. This room includes a seating area, a two-person spa tub, and luxe French doors leading out to the balcony overlooking the harbor.
A small coastal resort town, Provincetown (P-town, to locals) is known for its stretch of beaches, its artist culture and its LGBT-friendly community. Located at the very tip of Cape Cod, this New England destination is a mix of Greenwich Village and Key West, with the perfect blend of creativity and beach-party vibes. Charming boutiques and restaurants line the streets, while plenty of bars and nightspots keep the town vibrant into the wee hours. Soak up the cultural fun, or take a water excursion, ride a bike, and otherwise engage with the region’s equally abundant nature offerings; the staff is happy to set up an excursion on a dune buggy, schooner or whale-watching cruise.
How to Get There
This was our first time staying at the Anchor Inn Beach House and our first time in a guest house in Provincetown. It ended up being a great choice. The location on Commercial street was extremely convenient to dining and entertainment options.
The room was very comfortable (the A/C unit worked VERY well) and clean. It had a great view of the ocean. The bathroom had a jet tub, which was put to good use. The owners were very friendly and chatted with us every morning during the continental breakfast.
We were very pleased with our stay!
We stayed for 2 nights for my 50th birthday and we had an awesome time. From stepping through the doors the Chris and I think his mother) were really friendly and gave us a beautiful room overlooking the bay. Breakfast was plentiful although because it’s location is so great, endless places to go out and find something else (the beef hash next door at Betsy’s was amazing). So I’d just like to say thank you for making our trip so special. We’ll definitely come back and recommend to friends. As a side note - I used to clean this place as a student nearly 30 years ago, it’s so much cleaner now!!! Ha ha.
The Anchor Inn Beach House is everything I would have expected from a Provincetown Inn - serene even given its location at the heart of things on Commercial Street. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Loved the Anchor Inn... my room was nicely appointed and very clean. It included a small fridge, gas fireplace and a lovely balcony facing the water. The bathroom was spacious, very neat and had a charming nautical window.
Chris and Michael were terrific hosts and breakfast topped it all off! Awesome Inn and terrific location!!!
We have been staying here for years and it's like coming home. We feel so comfortable here and you will too! Not to forget Molly and Beau, the pups! Chris, Sandy and Michael aren't bad either! Wonderful rooms whether they be bayside or town side.
