Its beautiful vaulted ceilings, and the dormer windows with their attractive plantation shutters that filter the sunlight, could make this room the perfect scenery for a screening of "Giovanni's Room", one of Baldwin's most famous novels. In the Cape Cod summertime, you can soak up the Provincetown sun on the balcony and enjoy the views of our garden patio and the Namasté Spa.

 

This room has just been fully renovated.

Writer Bio

“Be careful what you set your heart upon, for it will surely be yours.”

 —James Baldwin

Born in 1924 in New York, he established his reputation with his first novel "Go tell it on the mountain" (1953), an autobiographical tale of growing up in Harlem. He became one of the leading African-American authors of his generation, known for novels and essays that tackled black-white and hetero-homosexual relationships. He was a noted essayist during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. James Baldwin died of cancer at the age of 63 in France.

This unique room at our Provincetown inn has a spacious bathroom, wet bar and balcony. Beautiful dormer windows and french doors, with their attractive plantation shutters that filter the sunlight, a cozy sitting area and the comfy king-size bed give this room a true "at home" feel. Relax all day on the roof deck overlooking our patio and the Namasté Spa.

Writer Bio

I can hardly wait for tomorrow, it means a new life for me each and every day.

 —Stanley Kunitz

Stanley Kunitz was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. About his own work, he said: "The poem comes in the form of a blessing-like rapture breaking on the mind. Does one live, therefore, for the sake of poetry? No, the reverse is true: poetry is for the sake of the life." Kunitz was a founder of the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, where he lived most of his later years and where he died at the age of 100 in 2006. We are proud to honor him at our Massachusetts hotel.
