Golden Retriever on beach in front of kayaksHello All,

We are thinking about you and hope you and your families are doing well.

We wanted to give you an update on the happenings in Massachusetts and Provincetown. Our Governor just issued an order keeping non essential businesses closed and stay at home orders in place till May 18, 2020. We hope at that time to be able to reopen but the Governor described businesses as opening in phases so we are not quite sure what that means. As information flows we will keep you informed. Provincetown issued an order effective May 1, 2020 that any one except for persons in an enclosed vehicle would be required to wear a mask while on Commercial Street from Bangs Street to Pleasant Street. Additionally masks are to be worn while in any enclosed business. There is an Recovery Coalition Group that is in place to advise the town manager on how to proceed when businesses and town begins to reopen. We share with you the current information and want everyone to remember that the situation is fluid and many things may change before your return to Provincetown.

We have made a few changes to our cancellation policy and wanted to share those with everyone. The adjustments to the policy are in bold type and there are 2 strikethroughs to show our modifications.

Please be assured we are putting some new protocols in place that are developed with the health and safety of our guests as a top priority. As far as the town, our beaches, restaurants, bike trails, shops, sunrises and sunsets-all that makes Provincetown special will all be here to welcome you back. We don’t know how things will be in the future but we are hopeful that things will be getting back to normal.

  1. We stayed with you in 2008 and have never forgotten our stay with you. Thinking of you and hoping you are managing in these hard times. We dream of crossing the Atlantic again when we can to visit the place that captured our hearts. Stay safe and keep going. Lil and Graham Parks.
