The second entry from David Bowd and Kevin O’Shea — the duo behind Provincetown-favorite, Salt House Inn — is housed in a 1751 captain’s house, renovated to create a welcoming, stylish sleep where historical details meet modern design. A seasonal breakfast is cooked daily by O’Shea himself (who studied culinary arts at Johnson & Wales) and served in the conservatory or on the garden patio. An upper sun deck with loungers means relaxation comes easy and, when you’re ready to explore, the inn’s prime location means Provincetown’s restaurants, bars and shopping are just steps away.
In the Area
Start the day on the water with a kayak rental from Venture Athletics—paddle out across the harbor to the beach at Long Point, a local favorite on the tip of Cape Cod. When hunger strikes, head to the Canteen on Commercial Street for the best lobster roll in town or hit Victor’s on Bradford Street for the raw bar happy hour from 4-6pm. Fancy a souvenir? Pick up t-shirts, mugs and more with the well known P-Town logo designed by Tim Convery at his clothing store Tim-Scapes.
How to Get There
My husband and I own a 2nd home in Provincetown, so it is pretty rare that we stay anywhere other than our home. But, during some recent remodeling/construction that was running behind schedule, we found that we needed a last minute place to stay. We could have crashed with some friends, but decided to make a weekend adventure at Eben House. It was beyond perfect. Our room was comfortable, clean, and Ptown quirky with a great deal of style and charm. The pool are is great and the breakfast was delicious! Staff were friendly, helpful, and truly cared about their guests.
We just wanted to relax and unwind and Eben House gave us the opportunity to do so. Great staff - friendly and efficient. Accommodations were very comfortable. Breakfast was well done, great selection. Having a pool was great
My wife and I spent 3 nights for our 40th wedding anniversary at the Eben. It was wonderful. The care and thoughtfulness of the entire staff was a joy. The location grand and the helpful map an added pleasure. Suggestions on restaurants were perfect.
Room was marvelous. Breakfasts a treat. Garden and pool a treasure.
I don’t know why you wouldn’t stay here
