Starting with a small glass of port or sherry upon entering and ending with great breakfast every morning really made this Inn stand out from the rest. First time to Ptown but won't be the last time visiting Stephan and Paul. And of course our day wasn't complete if we didn't run in the Eddy once a day. Thanks, you...

My husband and I loved our room, with its kingsized four poster bed, gas fireplace and beautifully appointed bathroom. The courtyard is peaceful with fountains, plants and exotic statues. The spa treatment I had was so relaxing, the specialist, welcoming and very good. Breakfast was delicious in a beautuful and bright dining room. We will definitely be going back.

This is the second time I've stayed here and each time was terrific. The staff and owners are pleasant and try to meet any need. The evening wine and cheese social is brilliant as is the breakfast. Rooms are very clean and well appointed though the shower is a bit tight. Parking is the only real issue. They do have...

Lovely weekend at this well-run guesthouse inn. We had four rooms as we were attending a family wedding nearby. The rooms were all beautiful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. Friendly, attentive staff and a very welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Decided on an off-season night to Provincetown and happened upon Carole Diem. Our first impression was made when speaking with Stephen at registration ( he's also co-owner). Outstanding service and excellent comfort were all that followed. Very close to everything on Commercial Street. From every detail- plush sheets and towels, decor and most impressive friendliness from all staff. Breakfast was...

Every time my big family visits, I send them to Carpe Diem. I hang out with them there and always get a massage. There are a lot of choices of places to stay here in our town, but I find that Eddy and his crew take really good care of my 90 year old mother! Great breakfast too.

I've stayed here a number of times since my first time in Feb. 2013...and it's even better! The facility continues to be GREAT! The hot tub, steam room, saunas and spa are AMAZING! (Still!) Very relaxing and peaceful getaway...and I was glad to return. Starting with the booking process (I booked directly via phone), the owners warmly welcomed me again....

Our third visit to Carpe Diem, stayed couple nights in February. Love Eddie who greets and checks us into any one of the lovely, upscale and renovated rooms. Danny is the cook (chef really) and had delicious breakfasts laid out, great eggs any way you'd like. The hot tub and steam-sauna rooms are our favorite. Did I mention how clean...
