My late wife and I first came to the Masthead in Easter week 1979. We found it delightful. We returned at the same time for the next 8 years. After our daughter came along we sought summer places a little closer to home but returned at Easter when her Easter breaks coincided with our NYC teaching schedule. Now many years...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

My wife's family has been staying at the Masthead for well over 30 years and I've been staying there with my family for 25. Why? Because The Masthead is perfection. Situated right on the harbor--and depending on the tides with the sands a few steps away (perfect for a stroll) or the ocean lapping beneath your windows--the various cottages are...

This is becoming a family tradition for us; April break at the Masthead! This was our 3rd year back and our expectations were exceeded again! We stayed in a beautifully renovated 2 bedroom suite with a balcony and stunning view of Provincetown Harbor. The weather was spectacular! Being so close to Herring Cove and Race Point is one of the...

This was our first time staying in a hotel of this kind and it was beyond perfect. We stayed in a cozy cottage right on the water. The cottage had everything we could need for a few days away from home. It was perfectly distributed with an amazing view of the water from our living room. Waking up to that...

We decided to take a spring trip down to P'town for a little rest and relaxation, and decided to rent a cottage at the Masthead for a bit of a change from our usual routine. It did not disappoint! The Helena Rubinstein cottage was by far the most comfortable and aesthetically appealing place we have ever stayed on the Cape....

Dear Seeker16, Thanks very much for your wonderful review!

This is the second year I've come here in early April. It's very quiet and that's what I was looking for. The cottages are nice, comfortable, and the views are great. It's a fairly short walk to the downtown area. The manager helped me out when I needed help with something. I plan to come back every year.

We had an amazing weekend in Provincetown at The Masthead Resort & Cottages. What a stunning location on the beach in the West End - quiet and relaxing, but a short walk to all the action. We stayed in a newly renovated two bedroom suite, which was beautifully appointed and very clean. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and...

We have spent a weekend at the Masthead the last two years in a row and can't wait to go back. Very reasonably priced, beautiful views of the bay, friendly staff, and a great location. Rooms are neat and clean, and really encapsulates the Cape life.

I enjoyed this quirky, charming, resort. I especially enjoyed the waterfront view and watching changes in the tides and weather. There is a nice walk to downtown. The buildings are older, but well-kept, painted, and clean. There are renovations and improvements being made in the resort. As an engineer and as someone who has worked construction, I recognize that people...
