2020 COVID-19  Policies

These are challenging times for all of us during the COVID-19 crisis.   To help the nation and the world fight this pandemic and to protect our guests and staff, the White Porch Inn is closed through the month of April.  We are monitoring the situation daily and will adjust and announce our re-opening when it is safe and appropriate for all.  We are issuing gift certificates for all who have booked during the times we are closed for the full amount paid.  This certificate can be applied to any future stay and has no expiration date.

One thing we do know is there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.  When we reach that light, what better place to come relax, unwind, and reconnect with friends than the White Porch Inn in P’town!   We know things are uncertain right now.   We want to make it easy for everyone to realize the dream of their next Ptown vacation and to be able to book without risk.   You can make a reservation now for anytime.   Should you wish to reschedule your booking for any reason this year, you can do so with no change or cancellation charge.   Not sure of the dates to rebook?  No worries, we will issue a gift certificate for the full amount which will have no expiration date!   The light at the end of the tunnel we come and we hope to see you there on the porch at the White Porch Inn.


Limited onsite tandem parking is available but must be reserved in advance, ideally at time of booking, and is based on availability for $15.00/day. We suggest bringing a second set of keys for your convenience.
