      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

      wish I could live in that house! Every room in Snug

      is charming. Almost every room has a woodburning fire-place(which is rare, as most B&B's have either a gas

      fireplace or you're restricted to Duraflame logs.)

      Every room has a stereo radio, mini-frig, and a

      combo DVD-TV player.Each room has its own decor, and

      character; it's hard to choose which room to stay in.

      At 4:30 every afternoon wine, cider, and homemade

      cookies are served in the livingroom/library area by

      the fireplace. In the morning you sit down to a break-

      fast of bagels, toast, homemade muffins, and scones,

      hardboiled eggs yogurt, get the idea!

      What's also nice is that each room has a bunch of

      books of all kinds, and the DVD library downstairs

      has movies for every taste.

      Last but not least there's James, the innkeeper.

      You could'nt find a nicer more helpful guy than James.

      James is really what this place is all about. It's

      obvious when you stay at Snug that his passion for the

      place shines through. He really wants you to have a great relaxing time. That's why we keep going back!!!

      Great Stay!


      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!

      Wonderful place


      My girlfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary here last weekend, and we have nothing but positive things to say about Snug Cottage.

      We stayed in the Rutland, which sounded nice from the description - we weren't dissapointed. The fireplace was ready for use, and had wood in the room (as well as a starter wedge and a lighter). The room was very clean, but not in the sanitized hotel sort of way - it felt more like a clean home.

      The room description said that there was a "partial view" of the harbor, which I generally take to mean that if you stand in the corner of your window and duck down a bit you can see something that might be water between two buildings. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it actually has a very nice view, as the attached photo will show.

      There is a computer available in the common area, and wireless internet access is available. I was also pleased to see that they had wireless cards available. I didn't need one, but it is a nice detail.

      Our host was very friendly, in a gentle unobtrusive way. The afternoon we arrived he was baking some cranberry oatmeal cookies, which we got back too late to sample unfortunately - they smelled wonderful.

      Another nice detail is that there were two robes hanging in the closet for us. It's little touches like this that really made us feel at home.

      The next time I'm in provincetown I'll most likely be staying at Snug Cottage again.

      Snug at the Snug


      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.)

      The Snug Cottage is the warmest and most welcoming place I've been to in Provincetown. I have stayed at some of the cheapest and some of the most expensive places there, and I have felt most comfortable at the Snug Cottage. In contrast-last summer I received a gift for a night at a another place that cost well over $300/night-I couldn't even get a cup of coffee in the morning and didn't find the staff particularly friendly.

      I found The Snug after a lousy experience at another b&b, and decided to check out several first hand. The minute I walked in I felt genuinely welcome and booked something for the following year.

      The owners have gone out of their way by providing a lot little niceties that add up to a very positive experience: Aveda bath products, homemade cookies in the afternoon, a complimentary fridge stocked with soda and water, umbrellas for a rainy day, a large and varied DVD library, wireless Internet with a common laptop, menus, newspapers, a nice coffee machine with really good coffee that is available most of the time, nice continental breakfast with homemade baked goods and a lot to choose from, a comfortable sitting room with a well-stoked fireplace...etc.

      I met several nice people during my stay there who all said the same thing-you definitely feel welcome and comfortable much more so than a lot of the other inns around town.

      I had such a good stay that I re-booked for next year halfway into my stay for fear that "my room" would be taken for next year. And I wasn't the only one--other people re-booked before leaving. I guess that's why on my walks around town on the coldest night in February, I notice that the Snug Cottage was the only lodging I saw with a "no vacancy" sign.

      I definitely recommend the Snug Cottage. I also recommend shelling out a few extra dollars for the Churchill Suite-just not on "my weekend."

      Loved Snug Cottage


      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.

      Love the Snug!


      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).

      Snug Cottage's rooms are cozy, but certainly big enough; the staff keeps them spotless and pulled-together. Each room is unique with antiques and unusual pieces to keep it interesting. Lots of amenities in the rooms and in common areas. Even a nightly chocolate for bedtime. Gotta love that kind of detail.

      The delicious spread put out each morning is awesome; you have to try their custom granola mix. I don't even eat breakfast in my real life, but on vacation at the Snug Cottage it's a must. There's something about the atmosphere of this place that makes people relaxed and friendly; we've met so many nice people around the breakfast table.

      Low-key, friendly and hospitable--can't say enough good things about it.

      ... We have both discovered a new love for lobster! The sunsets here are phenomenal and it's a really pretty place but we struggled to find stuff to do for a day and a half in this ghost town. We even ventured further afield and went trekking in the woods where I spent an hour trying to photograph a squirrel. Holiday highlight. Everyone knows everyone here, which has always put me at unease. Next stop, hopefully some signs of life at ...

      As fate would have it, we complete our tour just in time to take the Ranger-led tour of the Three Sisters Lighthouses. These lighthouses were replaced in the 1920's by the current Nauset Light which is still in operation today. The Three Sisters can have been preserved in a clearing near the Nauset Light.

      ... we saw our first lighthouse (well, up close anyway, we'd been viewing the lighthouses in Ptown from afar). We walked down to the beach to enjoy the mighty Atlantic Ocean. The waves were powerful that day but the best part was watching the seals playing in the surf. Every once in while they would pop up behind the waves. We walked the trail up to Nauset Light on to the Three Sisters Lighthouses for a quick photo op. By now ...

      I was on the go again this morning and once again found myself overheating in the subway as I made my back to the bus station. A man started talking to me about camping whilst on the platform, and when I said I wasn't camping just backpacking he asked how far south I’d been so I told him about Texas. He stated he was heading there soon, and that he whilst he has seen the Alamo before it was smaller than he imagined, and that I could probably ...
