There are literally 100 accommodation options all along the Cape Cod Coast line. We still had time in our driving day so we headed for Provincetown MA. Driving into the village along Commercial street we considered only accommodation near the centre of the village. With a number of options available one of the ones that stood out as our choice was the Prince Albert Guest House. So we had arrived to 164 and 166 Commercial Street two historical house merged into one Guest house now know as the Prince Albert Guest House.
Cape Cod, Provincetown MA: Prince Albert Guest House boast of having "one of Provincetown Massachusetts' largest outdoor living areas located on Commercial Street and the homes are historical landmarks once belonged to sea captains from the whaling days!" Well no wonder it is known as "Provinvetown's Crown Jewel". Sitting in the comfy and relaxing court yard we soon realized this was the best location in PTown to let the world pass by, people watch, and to enjoy the harbor views. We clearly scored one of the best.
Stephen, the owner and innkeeper, welcomed us making us feel that we were long lost friends. Following orientation of the house and the town we set out on foot to explore the village. We were with in walking distance of many terrific restaurants, art galleries, tourist shops and the nightlife. As we were staying only two nights at Prince Alberts Guest House we asked our host for his favourite places to have dinner. Without hesitation Stephen recommended Jimmy's Hide Away and The Lobster Pot. Both offered amazing food....the very best burger,fries and salad and the second night I got my lobster fix. We learned long ago in our B&B travel accommodation history to follow the innkeepers lead and we ended up eating the very best food overlooking the sea.
Each night following our exploration of the Provincetown village we headed back to the luxury setting of the Prince Albert Guest House. We had Room 1 just in side the front door...convenient for me not to have to travel the stairs. We soon learned that if you leave the door open Shelby the puppy would come and visit and offer her goodnight hugs and kisses...she too was a very welcoming host.
Our room was one of the 17 guest rooms with private bath, an oversized bay window with a water view. Just outside our door was a private patio. Our suite had a flat panel HDTV, ceiling fan, mini-fridgeand WiFi so we could plan our next days journey. Beautifully landscaped gardens are found amidst the patios along the front of the inn, as well as private patios in the rear where there is a large hot tub. In May one does not think of bringing a bathing suit to enjoy the hot tub. We will be sure to remember next time.
We sort of took the long way to get to Cape Cod amd Ptown, stayed only two days and then drove all the way home. A whirl wind 5 day adventure put 27 hours of driving, 2,600 klms, many fond memories, lots of pictures, plenty of culunary delights to tell others about and many new friends. You know what...we forgot to dip out toe in the cold ocean waters...meaning we are destined to return to Cape Cods Provinvetown for longer next time.
