The location is spectacular

“We have stayed at The Masthead for 25 years and absolutely love it there. The location is spectacular. The Ciluzzi Family and their staff always make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. We wouldn’t stay anywhere else.”

Absolutely stunning place to stay!

“Absolutely stunning place to stay! Very beautiful. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The place we stayed in was gorgeous and very clean. The beds were super comfortable, one of the best nights of sleeping on our trip. We would definitely stay again. The view is awesome!”

The room was beautiful.

“The room was beautiful. With amazing views right on Provincetown Harbor. It had every amenity possible so there was no need to dine out. It was very comfortable and clean and the staff was very kind. There was parking available and it’s only a short walk into town. It’s on the outskirts of town so Commercial Street was very quiet not busy like in town. The year-round accessibility to the resort makes it the perfect weekend getaway spot in the winter as well. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a peaceful beautiful getaway.”
