Tucked away in the most quiet part of our guest house inn lies the Jean Cocteau Suite, a perfect hideaway for those who are looking for privacy and some intimate moments. The wide-planked wooden floors, rich colors and stylish decoration make this a wonderful place for your Provincetown getaway. Currently, the jetted tub is not operational, though the tub is of course useable as a regular tub.
“Here I am trying to live, or rather I am trying to teach the death within me to live.”
A gay French artist and writer born in the late 1800's, Cocteau dabbled in a variety of artistic endeavors including poetry, fiction, film, ballet, painting, and opera. He traveled in circles that included such luminaries as Pablo Picasso and was branded "decadent" by the French government due to his avant-garde lifestyle and creations. Some of Cocteau's most famous works include the book, "Les Enfants Terribles", the play "The Infernal Machine" and the film "Blood of a Poet".
