My favorite place
My favorite place in P'town. Great accommodations, nice staff and very centrally located. Close to good restaurants, an organic market and all of the shopping. Great wine mixers on the Porch. Sum it up: the perfect getaway.-mansanfran

The Best
I always recommend the white porch for all of my friends wondering where to stay in Ptown. Convenient, beautiful, it doesn't get much better -rickyaschroeder

The best Provincetown has to offer!!
My partner and I have stayed at the White Porch numerous times over the last several years. The inn and staff at the white porch consistently deliver the finest B&B experience available on Cape Cod. All rooms are tastefully decorated and fully appointed with comfort in mind. One of our favorites is the regular afternoon wine gathering on the grand "white porch" and the many friendly visitors we have met there. I would recommend the White Porch to any seeking to have a romantic and unforgettable visit in Provincetown. -jason.seacat

Great place to stay
My partner and I have stayed at the White Porch many times. I have to say, it is the nicest and cleanest B&B in Provincetown that we have been to, and we have stayed at a lot of them. Rooms are not huge, but the house is so great, you don't want to sit in your room all day. Tom and Matt are amazingly accomodating and the house is literally right where you want to be in town. adamdan7877

The Boston Globe says about our unique Provincetown guest house: “Sand, sun, and the wide flat horizon where the bay meets the sky is what Provincetown is all about. The recently renovated WHITE PORCH INN captures this spirit by combining casual elegance with contemporary design in a style they call “beachy-chic” at this P’town hotel.

Our Provincetown guest house, with integrated art gallery knows as the White Porch Gallery, has ten tastefully decorated rooms with clean lines, calming qualities and contemporary art to help you enjoy your Provincetown vacation.

The porch of our Provincetown guest house is a great place to relax, unwind while having a European continental breakfast or to simply enjoying the Cape Cod breeze, while taking in the water views and the sites of Provincetown.

This Provincetown guest house is a member of the Distinctive Inns of Provincetown, and is conveniently located in the center of Ptown, just steps away from the fun of Commercial Street with its restaurants, bars, shops, galleries, Johnson Street Beach, and more.


The owner of the WHITE PORCH INN, Tom Shirk, and the Innkeeper, Dale share something in common; a passion for Ptown and for Cape Cod. Tom opened the WHITE PORCH INN a few years ago with the intent of creating a gem among the Provincetown hotels where that passion could be shared with old and new friends alike.

Dale has been on the Cape for sometime and has acquired vast work experience from some of the best Provincetown hotels, but had been looking for a unique Provincetown guest house that he could run as his own, pamper the guests, and enjoy Ptown. The WHITE PORCH INN has enabled Tom and Dale to do just that while having a lot of fun with our guests in the process. We’d like to thank all of our guests, both past and future, for helping make the WHITE PORCH INN and Ptown a very special place.

The rooms in our Provincetown B&B are named after lighthouses and sites on Cape Cod. There are rooms in the main house and the carriage house, all with what a guest referred to as a “beachy-chic” feel done in whites and earth-tones.

All rooms of this Provincetown Bed and Breakfast have private baths, flat screen TVs with DVD players & or SmartVs, audio systems with Bluetooth connectivity, free wireless broadband, refrigerators, and air conditioning.

Many rooms include fireplaces, spa tubs, a private porch, and provide either views of the Pilgrim Monument, the romantic roof tops of Ptown, or water views with a glimpse of Provincetown harbor.
