"There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.”

 —Robert Frost

Robert Frost is considered to be the quintessential New England poet, and is quite possibly the most well-known poet in American history. Born in San Francisco in 1874, Frost moved to New England at the age of 11 and spent most of the remainder of his life here. He earned 4 Pulitzer Prizes, among other awards for his work, which included such notable poems as "The Road Not Taken" and "Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening".

Windows on three sides bathe the room in sunlight, and bring in wonderful Cape Cod summer cross breezes. Because of the openness towards the outdoors and the leafy surroundings of the neighborhood backyards, guests at our Provincetown inn once dubbed it "the tree house". Vaulted ceilings, a queen-size bed, fireplace and a private balcony facing the gardens and the Pilgrim Monument make this nickname even more appropriate.

“I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.”

 —Oscar Wilde

As Provincetown is home to many gays and lesbians and is a major destination for gay travel, it is only logical that we include one of the most famous gay poets and writers in history at our guest house inn. Oscar Wilde was an outspoken and flamboyant man who was ahead of his time. Wilde bucked the conventions of the Victorian era with his hedonistic lifestyle, and while it may have inspired or contributed to his fantastic literary works such as, "The Importance of Being Earnest" and "An Ideal Husband", it put him at odds with many individuals in English society, one result of which was a term spent behind bars.

From the moment you enter this elegant room from its charming private garden area, you will feel like you are getting the red carpet treatment at our guest house inn: A cozy fireplace welcomes you, the stylish elegant bed in front of a large mirror invites you to afternoon naps and the bathroom with Jacuzzi tub promises pampering hours in your own bubble bath.
 Just come in!

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

 —Marcel Proust

While not a poet, Marcel Proust is included here as he was one of the most important gay writers in modern history. Born in France in the late 1800's, Proust is best known for his autobiographical novel, "Remembrance of Things Past", written mostly in a stream-of-consciousness style. The work of Proust influenced a variety of writers around the world including Virginia Woolf and James Joyce. He is generally considered the pioneer of the modern novel.

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.

“Here I am trying to live, or rather I am trying to teach the death within me to live.”

 —Jean Cocteau

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".
