Fabulous Provincetown Cottage

I have been renting the upper unit of the cottage from Chris & Thom for 8 summers. In fact, over the many years I have been coming, I have stayed at all 4 units at the Merry Meeting House and I can attest to the loveliness of all of them. I couldn't be happier here. The attention to detail that Chris and Thom provide is truly wonderful & thoughtful. Exquisite views, lots of warm fluffy towels to dry off with after a long swim in the bay. Every little detail from a constant supply of every need, like paper towels, good pots and pans, to well maintained linens and pillows makes the vacation I look forward to every year, well perfect.

The cottage is a special place and the location could not be better. If you are looking for the natural beauty that is part of the Provincetown seashore within a short distance to the excitement of "downtown" Provincetown, then this is the place for you. Beautiful flowers surround the property, privacy when you want it, lovely people around if you want to be social. I can't say enough good things about the Merry Meeting House. I have rented properties in P-town and all over the world & I might add, that I have extremely high standards, and without a doubt, Chris and Thom are the best hosts.

It is insipid....

From the moment I pulled into the drive Thom was rather insistent on how "exquisite" the cottage was and could not wait to show it to me. Yet, I was early and the room was not ready. I responded, "Not to worry. I am easy and laid back." Thom turned away and insultingly uttered, "I doubt that." Our request for paid reserved parking had been ignored and I had to remind them of the payment sent reserving parking.

For three days Thom and Chris injected themselves onto the property. This is the first time in six years of renting that the owners were present during the vacation. On day four I received an early morning phone call stating they would be by to collect the remainder of the payment, which had been sent to them months prior.

It felt as if they regard renters as a part of their weekly entertainment when we are there for a vacation and not to converse and make friends with the business people we rented from. The feeling of the owners popping in at any time to check on things was a source of tension and discomfort.

The so called "exquisite" cottage was ant infested and the refrigerator looks as if a pot of tomato sauce exploded all over the side. Ice trays were dirty and the teapot is a rusted out antique. No fan supplied for circulation of air and the lights in the cottage flicker on and off; providing a sense of the timbers of the old building catching fire around you. While the bed was the best part of the rental, there truly was nothing redeeming about the rest of the rental.

Let us not forget the fact that the week we booked is known for high gay adult activity. As long time residents and renters, Thom and Chris are well aware of the events of Bear Week and yet decided it would be appropriate to rent three of their spaces to gay men and one to a lesbian with two children. Imagine the surprise of one renter hearing "Excuse me!" as a woman is embarrassed that she looked into a window to see a naked man laying on his bed to cool down. This mixture of tenants caused a tension on the property which could have easily been avoided through a better understanding and managing of the target audience.

The main sense of tension is that the cottages have no indoor showers. A fact which is not directly communicated when renting. WARNING: If you rent from this property there will be people showering outdoors. Having only the option of an outdoor shower creates an environment of naked men traveling the property to and from showering in an outdoor shower, which is hygienically questionable. Especially when there is a hose connection allowing people to clean themselves and leave their dirty enema water embedded in the grass like mat used for flooring.

Upon check-out, Chris showed up early in a bad mood. We went to breakfast as we were all packed and ready to go by 9:15 AM yet all other tenants were still waking up and packing. Upon our return at 10:50 PM the tenants were still not packed and we had to wait even longer for our vehicles to be freed. Meantime, reports from the other tenants painted a picture of a mean Chris evicting tenants. The nice landlord turned into a scrooge once the week ended. Chris and Thom had their money, we had our vacation and nothing else mattered except the next renters.

I never did get the tour of my cottage from Thom. I actually never saw the cottage I rented, because it was given to another renter while we were given their room. So my answer to Thom's question, "Isn't it exquisite?" is "It is insipid."

The Most Cozy Cottage on the Cape

My husband and I have stayed at the Merry Meeting House several times over the years but we've always stayed in the main house, which is beyond lovely. However, this year we booked one of the cottages. What a treat. At night we were lured to sleep by the sound of water lapping onto the shore, and in the morning we awoke to sun filtering through the windows. While sitting outside with my coffee and the view of Provincetown in the near distance, I couldn't think of a more peaceful place. From sun up to sun down this vista never disappointed.

Cuddling up in the cabin was a delight too. In June, the evenings can be cool, and we snuggled up to watch a movie while pretending that the whole world had disappeared around us. The cottage was like our own little Walden when we wanted it to be and a place to take off from when we left for our vacation adventures. It is in the perfect location to find your inner calm as well as pass out in after having a little too much fun in town.

Overall I would say any space you can rent at the Merry Meeting House will not disappoint. The times I have spent there have been some of the best of my life. I hope you enjoy your stay too.

A beautiful beachfront rental

Absolutely a lovely experience. My family and I have returned for years to the Merry Meeting. We have rented the house and the cottages. Tom and Chris could not have been more accommodating . A friendly and charming location! I highly recommend staying here. We have had our best vacations and memories there.

Charm with a view

When looking for a Spring rental in P'town, I found the 2nd floor cottage at Merry Meeting House. My intention was to find a place "in the spirit of Provincetown" as I had known the town. The cottage turned out to be perfect. It is comfortably furnished, cozy (actually charming) with all the basics I require including excellent wifi. This unit has a private deck that has a spectacular view of the bay and town. The deck has been a great place to read, relax, have morning coffee and end each day marveling at the moon and stars over the bay.

A great asset for the Merry Meeting is its owners Chris and Thom. They are amusing, usually on hand to get one settled and also check in from time to time to see if anything is needed. Both are kind and helpful in addition to being quick to remedy problems if they should arise.

My original intention was to rent for 2 weeks one spring. I have returned regularly for 11 years. In a way, the Merry Meeting and its owners have become my Spring home and family.

Wonderful!

My family just returned from our stay at Merry Meeting House and can't say enough about how great it was to rent this property. We stayed in the 2 bedroom. The house has the homey, comfortable, quaint , cozy - all the hot chocolate words I can think of to denote tranquility - feel that relaxes you from the moment you enter the front door. To look out the kitchen area onto the beach was just divine, especially with a beautiful sunrise. Chris was the perfect host from beginning to end. We will return to Provincetown and know we have a second home to visit. show more show less

Loved it!

This little cottage has so far been the best place I have been to on vacation in the USA. The location, the owners, the people in the other cottages were amazing. The cottage was spotless and so cozy, it really was a little piece of heaven in paradise.

I came all the way from Australia and highly recommend staying in this beautiful cottage. If you like the cozy cottage feel that you can just relax and enjoy how amazing Provincetown is, then you will love it just like we did. Chris and Tom the owners are the best and really looked after us and we can't thank them enough.

Our recent vacation in Cape Cod was wonderful. The best part was this rental!
The cottage was spotless, well maintained, cozy and beautifully decorated. We loved the deck, which was literally 50 feet from the ocean. The views are breathtaking.

Thom and Chris were terrific! They were helpful, friendly and did not overlook even the smallest detail! They treated us like family and we will definitely be returning on our next trip to Provincetown!
