The Thoreau Cottage is the largest and most luxurious room in our Provincetown inn. Separate from the rest of the buildings and located adjacent to the Namasté Spa, the cottage features a spacious bathroom with a large double shower and a comfortable sitting area with an inviting leather sofa in front of a fireplace that warms the room on those cool, Cape Cod nights. Recently updated to include a luxurious king sized bed, and fully redecorated. The Cottage has a private outdoor garden and an outdoor shower.
The lovely bay window looks out onto our Asian Garden and the sliding-glass door leads to a private patio with mini-garden.
“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant.”
One of the most famous poets and writers in American history, Henry David Thoreau was a native of Massachusetts and spent most of his life here. Therefore, we felt it only appropriate to dedicate a room at our Massachussets hotel to the noteworthy artist. His best known work is "Walden", an autobiographical story of life in the woods on Walden Pond, where Thoreau made his home. Another of Thoreau's works, "Civil Disobedience", was an influence for both Mahatma Gandhi, in his passive resistance campaigns, and Martin Luther King, Jr. in his quest for civil rights.
