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
The Anchor Inn is charming and in a great location. Its a short walk to town. Chris and Michael are great hosts. They are knowledgeable about local restaurants and events. I would recommend the Anchor Inn to all.
This was the perfect place to relax and recharge. My room was beautiful with a stunning view and bedding that was like a cloud. The deck was the perfect place to have a coffee and unwind. I'm all ready looking forward to my next visit!
The location, the staff, the 4-post bed, the (breathtaking) ocean view, the dog with soulful eyes in the lobby, the bathtub fit for a queen, the balcony, the fireplace, the classical music being piped in throughout, the overall hospitality and every other little detail all come together to create this little slice of heaven on earth called the Anchor Inn. Also, Chris at the front desk is the best. I left feeling like my soul had been nourished and my happiness restored despite a raging hangover.
