The White Porch Inn is so excited to be included in the “50 Best B&Bs in America 2015” – published by Business Insider.   In order to come up with the list, Bedandbreakfast took properties from the Diamond Collection, an exclusive group of inns that are professionally inspected and evaluated on a 200-point scale along with  quantity and quality of guest reviews into consideration.

The Boston Globe writes: “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.


In(n) Art

In(n) Art is the ever changing installation of contemporary and traditional art that is made available by the WHITE PORCH GALLERY @ WHITE PORCH INN.  The concept of In(n) Art is to make art available to guests in a living environment that is integrated with their surroundings during their Provincetown vacation. In this relaxed and easy-going setting, guests have the opportunity to enjoy the pieces and the company of friends both old and new.  Our 2016 In(n) Art installation is “Voices of Existence” by artists Steve Bowersock and Dietmar Brixy.
