The Masthead is located on a quiet part of Commercial Street in Provincetown, about a 5 minute walk from all the action. This is a GREAT location and you pay for it! The "resort" is right on the water and if you are lucky, your room will have a great view. However, the actual room we stayed in was accessed...

We stayed in 41R and it was clean, beautiful views of the bay and extremely relaxing! We walked out on the breakwater to the beach in the morning and was perfect was to start the day! Wished we could have stayed longer - will be back for a mother/daughter trip!

We loved staying in the Isabella Rossellini cottage. Perfect for a couple with two children. Amazing view. Comfortable chaise lounges. Beautiful landscaping. Owners and office staff so gracious and accommodating. Highly recommend!!

Thanks for your review of the Isabella Rossellini Cottage, which was named after the actress after she had an extended stay in our cottage in the 80's while filming in the area. We've added a new bay window to the unit that has expanded the view of the bay for great unrestricted views of our picturesque harbor! Thanks for mentioning...

Back from my 11th year at the Masthead:) Still love it --amazing location with its long deck overlooking the water (or the beauty of low tide, depending on its ebb and flow), close proximity to the Breakwater and Herring Cove beach, and not too far from town. Clean rooms with ongoing improvements from year to year, and helpful staff:)

For a last minute reservation, it was cozy. The room #6 was a bit small for two people, but it was just for me (1). It was clean, neat and yes cozy. I had a beautiful view of the sunrise! The deck had chairs, tables, umbrella and loungers that face the ocean. It was beautiful. I had to share a...

Aug. 17-18-2016 Nice room with a beautiful water view!!! We couldn't get the tv on, Bed was very confortable. Nice deck area overlooking the water. No one around to help with the tv. Parking is limited, we had to park at the Provicetown Inn and walk back to the hotel.

I seriously don't know how they can call it a "resort", has absolutely nothing of such an accommodation. No bar or restaurant. No swimming pool but you've got a bay view which is nice when high tide is in, otherwise the view is quite desolate. We were on the second floor and had difficulty hauling our luggage up the steep...
