“A fool thinks himself to be wise, but the wise man knows himself a fool.”

 —William Shakespeare

Possibly the most famous poet of them all, Shakespeare is known not only for his plays but also for his beautiful sonnets. We include Shakespeare here as he has been an inspiration to, and influence on, poets and writers worldwide for centuries past, and surely for many more to come.

Three floor-to-ceiling windows provide for warm sunlight and comfortable Cape Cod summer cross breezes. Vaulted ceilings emphasize the airy and spacious feel of this room. The newly renovated room has an upscale twist on Cape Cod style.  The large private deck provides a serene environment with a view of the Pilgrim Monument.

"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".

This beautiful room at our lodging in Provincetown is clean and crisp in classic gray and white, and has just been renovated.  The king-sized four-poster bed boasts luxurious fabrics and is the perfect place to rest after a day exploring all Provincetown has to offer. The outside patio overlooks our elegant Asian garden and is a perfect place to enjoy breakfast on a beautiful Cape Cod summer morning.

“I am animated to a state of pity and fear, I stepped off the train, purged.”

 —R. Raj Rao

For years, Dr. R. Raj Rao has been the public face of gay Indian literature. The author of "Slide Show" and his searing collection of short stories, "One Day I Locked My Flat in Soul City" (1995), contains several angst-ridden gay-themed pieces. In 1996, six of Rao's poems from his still-in-progress "BomGay" were filmed as India's first gay film. Rao released his first novel, "The Boyfriend", which was widely publicized as India's first gay novel in English. It is bleak, hard-hitting and darkly funny.

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.

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.

“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.

Newly renovated, the sophisticated style and a sunlit sitting area are the highlights of this room.  The private deck area and the fireplace make this room a favorite in all seasons.  This room is centrally located at our guest house inn. Considering the proximity to the common area and Namasté Spa, this room is especially suited for people who like to socialize and meet new friends.

“We cannot tear out a single page of our life, but we can throw the whole book on the fire.”

 —George Sands

The free-spirited author George Sand scandalized 19th-century Paris when she defied convention and pioneered an independent path for women with her passionate search for a new way of being. She was of prodigious energies, managing to produce 70 novels, 24 plays, 40,000 letters and more. During her career she played an important, if long underestimated role in the evolution of the novel. Sand questioned the sexual identity and gender destinies in fiction.
