In this hectic, fast-paced world, it’s good to know that a charming, personable, haven with a white picket fence exists to get away from it all – The Inn at Cook Street in Provincetown, Massachusetts, a diverse fishing village and America’s oldest continuous arts colony. Located amidst beautiful gardens, steps from the beach one direction, and nearby restaurants and shops the other way, The Inn is an ideal getaway to relax, unplug and enjoy. The Inn at Cook Street recently reopened to launch their 2016 Spring/Summer season, and celebrate their 30th anniversary.
“We strive to create memorable experiences for our guests by inviting them into our home and having them enjoy a comfortable, welcoming stay here,” said John Jay Wooldridge, who with his partner Patrick Flaherty, have been the innkeepers since 2013.
Built in 1836, The Inn has hosted famous artists, celebrities and people from all walks of life during its colorful and historic existence. Wooldridge and Flaherty tend to The Inn with a focus on service and attention to all the details that guests remember. The “welcome to our home” spirit is alive at The Inn at Cook Street, even down to thoughtfully incorporating the pineapple as the logo. The pineapple dates back to colonial times and symbolizes hospitality, welcome and friendliness, and so does The Inn thanks to Wooldridge and Flaherty.
The Inn consists of eight rooms – two cottages, two full suites with a living room and bedroom, and four one-bedroom suites all with private bathrooms and some with fireplaces and sundecks. Most of the rooms have private entrances for guests to come and go as they please. Each of the rooms has a unique personality of its own, reflecting seaside elegance. Many are decorated with the original works of several local artists. The Inn’s skilled chef Andrew Carter prepares all of the meals. Wooldridge and Flaherty also offer comprehensive concierge services, from top-of-the-line in-room amenities to making reservations for meals, sightseeing adventures, spa services and other entertainment options during their guests’ stay.
Active and supporting the arts in the Provincetown community, as well as in their former home of New York City, Wooldridge and Flaherty sponsor local events and open up The Inn for special workshops and retreats. The Inn at Cook Street is a member of the Distinctive Inns of Provincetown, which collectively includes 130 rooms in the area. It is also featured in the Tripadvisor Hall of Fame for Excellence, receiving their Certificate of Excellence.
