We have had a couple of down days.
Highlights included finding a pair of fresh water lakes in the Nickerson National Park which helped as we have discovered they are having a bit of a shark problem on the cape!
Brush with the law- went to ...
... back to the highway and take a dip on Races beach. Dunes, sand, sea = no camera on beach. Shimmied into our cossies and took the plunge. It was freezing - all agree colder than Kingsand- we caused quite a stir with people just stopping and looking and encouraging us. Really strong current to right (hence the name "Races") so quite challenging swimming. Like one of those pools you can get to swim against a current- we struggled to stay in the same place. No one else in the water at ...
Well, we can honestly say that we have never seen this much rain in one. Never.
The day started with making a lasagna and watching a full season of Weeds. Every time we thought it would let up, it didn't.
We've been playing games with Maeve, although she enjoyed a do-nothing day, too.
We had a late night last night, going to see Kate ...
... would someone name a place after lettuce on a bun?
We stopped for breakfast at Cracker Barrel (can't remember where) and we were both really ready for it because we had no dinner last night. It was a great place to eat (thank you Marie-Claire & Hal for recommending).
We had rain for a couple of hours today - the first real extended period of rain we have had on the trip, but once again it didn't really affect us as we were driving. ...
... our car, a silver Chrysler 200 convertible, and the journey out to Provincetown was a surprisingly easy two-and-a-half hours.
Provincetown is a very cute seaside town, all painted wooden houses and white picket fences. We first checked into our hotel, 8 Dyer, which is a very sweet and smart-looking converted house run by Tim and Frank. It only has a few rooms which are all off the foyer (what would be the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Snug Cottage Provincetown
My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's over the years, but Snug Cottage in P'Town MA is the best. I
The accomodations and staff made our short stay memorable. Thank you! We will be back!
Snug is much better than your average B&B
This is the best B&B I've ever visited. It has all the comforts you could ask from a B&B, with the attention and details of a large hotel.
Our room was well priced and LARGER than it looked from the photo. We made a fire in the fireplace and it was wonderful, plus great views from all windows in the Bristol Suite.
The breakfast included more substantial fare than just bagels and fruit; no bacon and eggs, but better than your average continental breakfast, and good, too!
The free wine and cookies in the afternoon was also a nice touch. I recommend this place to all Cape Cod travelers.
Couldn't have asked for a better place!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Snug Cottage at the beginning of this week for a quiet Spring Break. I can't even begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay; we didn't want to leave! Everything was perfect - from the delicious, fresh breakfast buffet in the morning, to the afternoon snack time. Our favorite part was the way that the smell of the scones and coffee permeated the whole house around 8:00 in the morning! The place is kept immaculate and is decorated so perfectly. The host, James, was very pleasant and accomodating. I can't wait to book the Victoria Suite again soon! Thank you for a wonderful time.
Snug is a perfect fit
What a complete delight. My wife and I chose Snug Cottage for a midweek getaway. We were treated with perfect service; the fireplace in our room (Bristol Room) warmed us all afternoon. We only left it for the glass of wine and perfectly baked oatmeal raisin cranberry cookies that were set out as an afternoon offering. The room was lovely, the other people friendly. All wrapped in a very respectful tone that gave us the privacy we wanted. Can't recommend this B & B highly enough...and it's a short walk to a magical restaurant...dinner overlooking the water. I can't wait to visit again!
My girlfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary here last weekend, and we have nothing but positive things to say about Snug Cottage.
I just had my fourth winter visit to the Snug Cottage. My stay at the Churchill suite was excellent as usual. The annual price increase almost forced me out of my trip there, but I'm glad I put a few dollars aside for the splurge. (It is not expensive in reality at $145/night for a charming suite with a private bathroom, entrance and fireplace since you could spend the same amount at many hotels in Massachusetts. It is just higher than most places in Ptown for February, and doesn't make for a steal of a winter getaway.)
We are from Washington State, where "old and historic" means a house built in 1905. It was heavenly to stay in historic Provincetown, and we were so lucky to find Snug Cottage. It's extremely lovely, but in a completely comfortable, warm and friendly way. I wish it was my house, actually! My husband and I had a lovely time in our room with fireplace, our daughter had room next door with fireplace, and we felt welcome using the common areas of the inn, including using their computer for guests, and we RELAXED completely. Our 16-year old daughter, of course, used the computer constantly to keep up with her friends who she hadn't seen in gosh, three days, so that was great to have. Paul and I had no cares and woes. The innkeeper, James, has it down to a science: we had breakfast in bed one morning, wine in afternoon and chatted with other guests who happened to be charming, and they have a closet full of great DVD's so we watched movies in room in evening. OH, and they have really nice Aveda bath stuff! Our visit was in wintertime, the weather was sunny and cold, and walks around town and beaches were great. Would have loved to stayed longer, we were there for just two nights, and hope to come back another day. Price seemed reasonable to me for such a great time.
Relaxing at the snug
Everything was inorder. Really clean, friendly, really nice garden, good wine at 6pm, room was clean and big.
Breakfast could be a bit more different things but quality of the products are really good.
The house is charming, the rooms well-appointed and the hosts are super-friendly. As are the two sweet whippets that also live here. Parking is convenient and a bike rack to the side of the house made it easy for us to park our truck for the duration of our stay and take frequent, short bike trips into town center and to the beach (less hassle & parking fees).
