Bear Week in Provincetown
Stay: Enjoy: Relax:
Bear Week in Provincetown is a fun-filled week of activities for the Bear community, with a long list of events every year. The daily Tea Dance has different themes each day, the various clubs have nightly parties, and the restaurants and shops are hopping. Whether it's a day at the famous Boy Beach, or time spent pool-side, it's a great time to mix with old friends and make new ones. Many people return year after year to this July event (the dates shift slightly every year, but generally the week after Fourth of July).
Carpe Diem Guesthouse and Spa is always a great part of Bear Week in Provincetown for our guests. We have 18 individually styled guest rooms in a variety of price points, from our Henry David Thoreau Cottage (our premier guest room with a King bed, a private courtyard with outdoor shower, and a double headed shower), to our Harry Kemp Room, our least expensive, which is a small but charming room with full size bed. We have all sizes and styles in between as well!
However, Carpe Diem Guesthouse and Spa is the best choice for Bear Week in Provincetown because of all the things we offer that others do not. We have a full cooked breakfast with a buffet, eggs to order and a hot special daily. Our daily Wine and Cheese Social is our guests' favorite with artisanal cheeses and small bites to enjoy before a night out in Provincetown. In the warmer months our courtyard is a popular place during the wine and cheese social for guests to gather and chat. Our guests love the ability to socialize with each other over appetizers and wine.
But perhaps the most distinctive thing about Carpe Diem Guesthouse and Spa is our multiple-award winning Namaste Spa! Namaste Spa's facilities are open for guesthouse guests to use free of charge during opening hours. Facilities include an outdoor hot tub, sunbathing area, a large Moroccan style steam room, and two dry saunas. The entire spa area is clothing optional, and co-ed, though our Bear Week crowd is overwhelmingly male. During Bear Week in Provincetown we also offer the group Hammam Gommage treatment in our steam room, a full body skin treatment offered to a group as a class, and it is a very popular option.
All in all, we believe Carpe Diem Guesthouse and Spa is the best value for Bear Week in Provincetown because we offer the fullest state of relaxation and care available, with the best amenities. Indulge yourself in what we offer and all that Provincetown has to offer this Bear Week!
