Aerie House and Beach Club in Provincetown, MA

Aerie House and Beach Club in Provincetown, MA


We offer spectacular bay views from both our hilltop Guesthouse and our waterfront Beach Club.  Our accommodations range from deluxe suites and beachfront apartments to economical rooms with shared baths.  Something for every budget.  Complimentary bicycles, bay view hot tub, private beach, fireplaces, gardens, a large sundeck, parking, ferry and airport pick up service, delicious breakfasts and much, much more all located in Provincetown's charming East End Gallery and Restaurant District.  We welcome well behaved dogs as well as our human guests and are open all year.


Established in 2000.

Innkeepers Steve Tait and Dave Cook bought this property in 2000 and totally renovated and rebranded it into today's Aerie House & Beach Club.  The Guesthouse was originally built as a Captain's House around 1850.  It had been a rooming house and/or lodging house since at least the 1950's and was know as Normandy House before 2000.  The Beach Club Apartments were developed as four condos in 1987 and were merged into Aerie House as apartment rentals in 2000.  In our renovation we tried to keep some of the historical charm of the Guesthouse building but have done it in a clean, contemporary look with guest comfort always kept in mind.  We have also spent much time on the surrounding grounds and have a greenhouse where we grow orchids as well as a small vineyard.

This place is amazing. They have great service, are very friendly and doesn't cost a fortune yet tehy don't sacrifice the service. There is a hot tub, freshly baked breakfast every morning included  with the stay and a great DVD collection. The rooms are nicely decorated and the complimentary champagne is a nice welcome. Pets are welcome as well which gives it a homey feeling. Would recommend this cute bed & breakfast to anyone visiting the area.

I pride myself on very short quick to-the-point reviews on here but I could go on about how great this place is.  This is my second time staying here. The two guys who own this together are great, very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is wonderful, homemade and very fresh everyday. I love siting up on the deck for breakfast overlooking the bay. The rooms are cozy, each with a simple easy to use fireplace, a nice flat screen TV  and coffee maker and they change the sheets and towels everyday.  A selection of bikes for the guests and don't forget the welcome Champs in the mini fridge. We always seem so busy to get a dip in the hot tub, but perhaps next time. OH, and dog friendly.  They have two very lovable friendly black labs. I could go on with all the extras, but you get the point.

This place is a real find! We stayed in one of the Beach Club apartments in late March. The space was clean, quiet, bright, and pleasantly decorated--not too froofy, not too modern, with all the details from the teapot to the mirrors thoughtfully and tastefully chosen. The apartments all have stellar views of the ocean and walk out to their own stretch of beach. Our dog was welcome for a small fee ($10/nt), which made the  trip much easier on us. The apartments themselves are right on the boundary between the center of town (you can see the library) and the galleries of the quiet East End. So it's quiet and peaceful but completely walkable to anywhere you want to be!

The owners, Steve and Dave, are really pleasant and wonderful guys. We didn't see any of the rooms in the guesthouse but the common areas there are really elegant and comfortable. Breakfast is *outstanding* and far beyond continental--frittata, muffins, and delicious pan-fried tomatoes, all homemade by Steve, in addition to a lovely fruit salad and a wide array of cereals, oatmeals, juices, and bread products. We ate our breakfast in the guesthouse's sunroom, which is peaceful and overlooks the town and the bay.

Extras: They have a huge and varied DVD collection for you to choose whatever you like during your stay. They also give guests comment cards for reviews of area restaurants, so there's a little chart of restaurant suggestions when you arrive.

Beginning to end, a wonderful stay. The price--even with the great winter rates--felt like a splurge for us, but once we got there, we realized our stay was worth every penny. Our only complaint was that we had to leave at the end of the weekend! ;)

I can't say a whole lot that hasn't already been said.  My husband and I have stayed at Aerie House during our first visit to Ptown.  Dave and Steve are wonderful.  Fresh, delicious breakfast in the morning, a beautiful view from the deck, comfy rooms and a hot-tub.  Would definitely recommend!

Well-run inn by a couple of great guys that really know the business.   Great atmosphere, super breakfast choices, comfortable rooms.  We've stayed with them several times over several years.  Nice location in that they are in a quieter spot, away from the "hub-bub" of Commercial Street, yet very walkable. Rental bikes are a nice amenity. Very fair value, too.  They also have a hot tub, outdoor deck with a view and access to the harbor's beach via another property they own down on Commercial Street.

From the minute we arrived, we fell in love with this place. Dave and Steve, the owners, were so inviting that you feel like you are at home. Everything was so nice and inviting that we didn't want to leave. I can't wait to go back!

I love this place, I've stayed here five times and can't wait to go back. The owners are friendly, the breakfasts are so yummy! I also enjoy using the hot tub and riding the bike all over and to Race Point Beach.

We stayed in apartment 3 at the beach club apartment's. Apartment was very clean and cozy. Had private balcony and back stairs down to beach. Perfect for watching the sunrise! Super comfy bed with down comforter. We brought our 11 month old Weimaraner for his first PT vacation and he LOVED it too! The apartment is just close enough to walk to town but far enough that it's quiet.  We're so happy to have found this gem and plan to make this a yearly vacation retreat! Thank you Steve and David!!!

This place is such a treat. I went on a weekend over february vacation for a trip by myself and they were super accommodating. I got room # 5, which was about seventy or so dollars a night on the off season. It was a fantastic room with everything I needed. The shared bathrooms were spotless and great and I didn't mind sharing at all.

Breakfast was AMAZING. Tater tots and quiche and so many fruits. I was spoiled.

DEFINITELY coming back soon.

Mere hours after a brief stay at Aerie House No. 4, I'm trying to think of something negative about the place. I cannot.

It was our first time in Provincetown. It was our first time on Cape Cod! The experience was so nice, we can't wait for another visit and hope we can stay here.

The view is very nice, overlooking the harbor area. And there's a spacious deck with two Adirondacks, an umbrella and a sea breeze. Win!

The small apartment is ideal for a couple, and very tastefully appointed. It's just right. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need if you want to make your own meals.

Which is a challenge, because Aerie House is located in the heart of P-Town's best area. Temptation awaits in every direction: Do you go to the private beach out back? Or to one of the amazing art galleries or shops on the same street? Or do you think about it while taking your choice of top-flight restaurants literally minutes away by foot?

I cannot imagine a better location. Throw in a free parking spot in an area starved for them, and you're getting even greater value.

A crucial item for us was allowing our three dogs. This is a challenge we've faced over and over, but not at Aerie House. Dogs welcome! Guests below also had a nice pooch.

Because our stay was brief, we missed out on some features other reviewers are raving about, like the breakfast, the hot tub, the bikes... for a longer stay, we'd probably have dipped into their DVD library! A washer and dryer downstairs would be a handy item for longer stays, as would the perfectly sized Weber grill.

The bed is cozy and big. There's no a/c -- maybe that's the only knock -- but a steady sea breeze and two big fans to compensate.

The grounds were beautifully maintained and the apartment was clean and fresh-looking.

We immediately wished we could have stayed longer and can't wait to come back.

I almost regret this review, because now we've just created more competition for this excellent accommodation. But Aerie House has earned it. Well done gentlemen!

We just got back from Ptown and cant wait to plan our next one! This is the nicest B&B we have stayed at and the breakfast was so yum and home made (umm particularly having warm vegetarian options will win me over any day). Steve and Dave the owners are wonderful and very accommodating!

We got room #2 and the view every morning was just spectacular. It was a nice cozy room with attached bath, fireplace, mini fridge and attached bath. Looking forward to our return and stay here!

My husband and I have come here 2 years in a row, and we plan to go back again next year. This year the rooms with private baths were all booked, and I almost didn't make a reservation. But after reading other reviews about the shared bathrooms, we decided to give it a try, and we're glad we did. During our 3 nights there, even though the place was fully booked, we never had to wait to use a bathroom. Our room (#5) had a sink and great view of the harbor and, like the bathrooms, it was really clean.

Dave is a great cook and baker, and we loved the variety and quality of the breakfasts. We also loved eating on the deck and talking with the other guests. The vibe here is very open and friendly. It's also a very dog-friendly place, so even though we didn't bring our dogs with us, we were able to get our daily dog fix from the other guests' dogs--who, unlike our own beasts, were relatively quiet and never woke us up by barking.

Other touches we liked were the complimentary champagne, the bowls of candy in the hallways and living room, the bicycles available to borrow, the beautiful greenery, and the aforementioned deck, which has often has music playing and is a great place to read, drink wine, or just stare out at the ocean or the stars, depending on the time of day.

This is a great little B&B in P-town. We spent a couple of nights here and they took great care of us. Huge spread for breakfast and great coffee (They insisted it was regular folgers french roast, but thats hard to believe). The innkeepers were great hosts and helped us have a great little vacation, we could have stayed there for ever. Get room #2 for a nice view.

We definitely plan to be back here - we hardly got to make full use of all the facilities (hot tubs, bicycles, etc) and extras Steve & Dave provide.

My husband and I stayed here for Spooky Bear.  Steve and Dave couldn't have been nicer.  It was like staying with good friends.  I enjoyed the hot tub, which had an ocean view.  Our room had a little kitchen which was useful for late night snacks.  It was an easy walk to town.  I definitely plan on coming back next year.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights after seeing it suggested from Frommer's. We stayed in the coziest room (#6), which was only $95 a night. It was a tiny room, but worked fine for the 2 of us. The house is lovely. The common areas were really nice and had a fireplace, hot tub and beautiful outdoor deck. The breakfasts were great btw. Nothing continental about them! Eggs, bakery goods and a meat everyday and everything was great! The owners were incredibly nice and helpful and the housekeeping was even nice. Great location too. Very near the downtown. Wonderful place to stay! I'd definitely stay there again if I was in town!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night in early May, and it was simply lovely!

We stayed in room #6, the teensiest (and hence, cheapest) of the lot! Plenty of space for our purposes.

Steve and Dave were great--they were happy to offer recommendations on places to eat, and were very kind in allowing us to use their bikes a few hours past our check out time. Oh, and did I mention there's a hot tub??

Breakfast was delicious! The spread was overwhelming: eggs, bacon, freshly baked blueberry coffeecake, cereal, any topping you could possibly desire for your toast (nutella!!!)....I could go on. We will certainly be back for another stay!

Fun fact: they are pet friendly, so you can bring your pooch.

Wonderful wonderful place. Steve and David are so nice. Their two new black lab puppies Coal and Duff were a wonderful surprise. Super clean relaxing, views great. Perfect location. Stayed in #4 beach club apartment. Beautiful views, stairs to beach. Great breakfast. Overall wonderful.

this was my first bed and breakfast experience, and it could not have been better. i felt so at home with steve and dave. they just got two black lab puppies, which were so adorable and playful. my boyfriend and i came in may, before memorial day weekend, so the place was still relatively quiet. we got a private room plus private bathroom. they were smaller than a hotel room, but really, how much time do you really spend in a room anyway?

because we came before the summer rush, breakfast didn't consist of the normal range of eggs, bacon, etc., but dave was more than happy to cook something up for us if we asked. bf and i were happy enough with the cold food selection as it was - fruit salad, cereal with different types of milk, hard boiled eggs, AMAZING blueberry muffins, bagels, toast, etc.

the place was impeccably clean, and always quiet. loved that they had complimentary champagne, lots of bowls of candy lying around, hundreds and hundreds of DVDs, the beautiful view of the ocean, and free bikes and helmets to use. bf and i definitely took advantage of the bikes, but keep in mind that provincetown is hilly!

We just returned from our eighth year staying at the Aerie House. We love mornings on the deck with Dave's well prepared breakfast choices and afternoons lounging in the sun. Both Dave and Steve make themselves fully available; whether it's the latest and greatest in baseball, restaurant recommendations, or just asking about where we've spent our day. We miss guarding our breakfasts from Mack and Dylan (sorry if we've spelled their names wrong), but got a kick out of Coal jumping the gate and watching Duff wanting to. Economical and perfect spring get away.

Thoroughly Relaxed!! Our stay at the Aerie Beachhouse apt. 4 was exactly what we needed. It was wonderful to wake up each morning to see the sun shining across the bay. The deck and adirondack chairs provided us a private space to enjoy or coffee. The apt. has a fully equipped kitchen that allowed us to feel like we were home. We cooked dinner and watched the boats come back to the docks. Everything is within walking distance. The delicious, made to order breakfast and availability of the hot tub at the  Aerie House was an huge added bonus. The owners were pleasant and professional. I would highly recommend staying here.

My husband and I just stayed at the Guest House for 2 nights in Room 1. We loved it and we will definitely be returning next year! Guest room 1 has an amazing view of the harbor with a private deck and it was well worth the extra money. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great too! I highly recommend it!

After four years together, my fiancé and I were finally able to take a vacation last May. We didn't want to go too far, we didn't want to spend too much money and... We didn't want to leave our dog at home. After lots of searching, I discovered the Aerie House, and we plan to make this a yearly trip.

We stayed in Guest House room 7, which is the only first floor room, and has it's own private entrance. This room also has a little kitchen which was nice. When we arrived there was complimentary champagne waiting in our fridge to kick off our vacation right!!

The owners of this B&B are fabulous. They had two new puppies who my dog enjoyed meeting. They have an extensive DVD collection that we borrowed from to watch in our room at night, and they also have an extensive list of nearby restaurants with ratings by previous guests! Anytime we were going out we asked for advice first, and they always had great recommendations. And as if all of that wasn't good enough... They make a delicious breakfast every morning. We went during an off season so the B&B wasn't full, and they would take our breakfast orders every day.

The B&B also has a hot tub, is in walking distance from so many restaurants and tourist-y shops, driving distance from the beach and hiking trails, and driving distance from an off-leash dog park!

I honestly can't say enough good things about the Aerie House, and I can't wait to go again this spring!
