Christopher's BTB is a great place in Ptown. I stayed there right before Halloween and the place was decked out great, and the hosts couldn't have been nicer. I'll definitely come back!

I am a frequent guest at Christopher's and I had never been disappointed. The rooms are spotless, the breakfasts are always delicious and their prices are extremely reasonable.The hosts, Jim and Dave, make every guest feel at welcome. They are happy to help with questions about ptown and leave great little snacks in the front room that add a nice homey touch. I cannot recommend Christopher enough, it is becoming the only place I stay when visiting ptown!

I made my first visit to Provincetown Labor Day 2006. I stayed at CBTB that year, and every year since!

The house is over 100 years old, but has been well kept. It's warm, and comfortable. I have grown to be just as comfortable staying here as in my own house, and that doesn't happen to me very often.

Jim and Dave do a wonderful job of running the place with the help of Shane. The rooms are always clean, baths are always cleaned and stocked, and the breakfast is great.

My favorite place about the house is the back patio. It's gorgeous. It's a great place to sit and eat breakfast, take a break in the afternoon, or have a glass of wine in the evening. And not to mention, hang out with Jeb! (Their adorable black lab.)

The house is situated perfectly for me. It's on a quiet sidestreet away from the insanity - yet if you want insanity it's just a 5 minute walk away.

Stay here!

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay at Christopher's by the Bay. My room was very clean and comfortable. The service was fantastic; my room was always promptly made up with clean towels and fresh linens. I really enjoyed the cozy outdoor patio. The owners Jim and Dave were incredibly helpful with suggestions for restaurants and activities in and around Ptown. I plan on coming back and staying there again and highly recommend this B and B to anyone.

Room Tip: Loved the Michelangelo room! Was very spacious and quiet.

I've been visiting PTown for many years now and consider it a home away from home. Have stayed in condos and several other bed and breakfasts over the past 20 years both on my own and with a partner. I must say that Christopher's is one of the best in terms of my checklist: accommodations, GREAT coffee, comfort and convenience. They are located one block from the bay (and quick walk to center of town), have very comfortable and well-kept rooms (thanks Shane!) a gorgeous private back garden area with water trickling to the fish tank, great music playing, plenty to read and amazing coffee for my morning wake up. A nice balance of choice for breakfast (one morning there was a fantastic peach cobbler type dish!) and the owners are personable and accommodating above and beyond most hosts. I also love the front room which has comfy chairs, couches and big bay windows. This past stay I spent quite a bit of time there as the weather had turned colder and had some great convos with other guests. Having stayed here several times now this season I can say without hesitation that my great experience was not hit and miss but pleasantly consistent. Thanks Jim and Dave! You've figured out how to get it right. Will definitely be back next season if not sooner!
