Effective August 1, 2020: All visitors and returning residents entering Massachusetts must follow new travel orders. The Commonwealth has made great progress to slow the spread of COVID-19 and gradually re-open the economy, and all visitors have a responsibility to help us keep transmission levels as low as possible. More detailed information about travel and exemptions can be found at this link: Covid-19 Travel Order
Updated: March 2021
In light of the emerging Covid-19 virus, we want to reassure guests that we are enhancing our normal cleaning process to reduce the risk of transmission. Christopher's by the Bay has always prided itself on the level of cleanliness we provide to our guests.
In terms of reservations, we will still be maintaining policies we’ve had for many years, but have added extra protections for our guests as developments in the situation occur. As you may imagine, this is a challenging moment for us at Christopher's as well, and we ask our guests to keep up to date on the situation before making changes to your plans. While normally some key weeks have non-refundable deposits, this year (2020) we are making it possible to reschedule for up to one year from the date of their stay, so if you are not feeling well, please feel confident knowing that you can reschedule without losing your payment.
No one knows exactly when the first gay kiss was planted in America, but if one had to guess, Provincetown might be the best answer to come across your lips. Known for years as the epicenter of America’s gay scene, Provincetown holds the past and the future in a two-mile stretch of sand and sea. The Mayflower Compact was signed out in the Provincetown harbor as any historian might tell you, and before the little boat sailed onto its second landing in Plymouth, there’s no one who can deny or confirm what exactly happened in the dunes as the Pilgrims went ashore for a little exploring.
