Christopher’s by the Bay – Provincetown Gay Bed and Breakfast

Christopher's by the Bay - Provincetown gay bed and breakfast

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Perched at the northern edge of Cape Cod, between the sea and the sand of Provincetown’s Harbor, you’ll find a vibrant, gay friendly New England village called Provincetown. Our Provincetown gay bed and breakfast, Christopher’s by the Bay, is nestled in the heart of this historic Atlantic harbor town, on a quiet street in a beautiful mid-nineteenth century home.

We’re an easy walk from the east end art galleries, and just a short bicycle ride away from Herring Cove beach. Or maybe you’d rather stay put and relax in our quiet, beautiful garden. Provincetown is a unique and lovely place, from the warm sands of Race Point to the glimmering reflection of an autumn sunset over the bay.

Our home has a long and storied history – as a home to school teachers, artists, fishermen and sea captains. Many of Provincetown’s city records were destroyed in a fire in the 1920’s, so a lot of the history of the building has been lost. But more recent records show that it has been an inn since the 1970’s – originally called the Swanberry Inn, then Carpe Diem. The Inn has carried the current name, Christopher’s by the Bay, since 1999.

The namesake for the inn, Christopher Covelli, is an accomplished chef. He travels the world, teaching at a culinary school in Tuscany, practices his craft in Sarasota, Florida, and even competes in Iron Chef competitions.

Provincetown is the oldest ongoing art colony in the USA, and so we’ve named each of our guestrooms after one of the great artists: Michelangelo, Dali, O’Keefe, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, etc.

Your current hosts, Dave and Jim began visiting Provincetown on vacation a number of years ago, and loved the peace and tranquility in this little seaside village offers. After a number of visits, they decided to leave Washington DC in 2006 to fulfill their dream of owning a B&B.

Both Dave and Jim keep one foot in their former professional lives – Dave teaches Provincetown High School, and Jim continues to do leadership training and development for non-profits with Leadership Outfitters, Inc. But they also now enjoy baking, hosting guests and playing with the dogs on the beach each day in Provincetown!

Welcome to Provincetown and Christopher’s By The Bay it’s like nowhere else!

Boston Gay Bars and Clubs

Boston Gay Bars - dBar

Boston’s acceptance of sexuality (of any orientation) has come a long way since the Puritans founded the city in 1630. Massachusetts was the first state to recognize gay marriage — a full decade before the country as a whole did — and its capital city quite fittingly has a host of bars catering to the LGBT community.

Whether you’re seeking a low-key dive bar or an in-your-face cocktail bar with drag brunches, these six LGBT-friendly Boston gay bars and clubs in Boston will make you feel right at home.

For the Cocktails: Trophy Room

Drag brunches and regular screenings of RuPaul make visiting Trophy Room in the South End a weekly occurrence for some Bostonians — especially those looking for more than just a standard drink. Here, bartenders serve 13 signature craft cocktails with a heavy pour. Order the namesake Trophy Husband: a smooth blend of Grey Goose cherry noir vodka, ginger liqueur, and lemon juice.

Linger over cocktails on the covered veranda. Share a romantic dinner or entertain colleagues at the center table, which happens to be the restaurant’s namesake. Savor the pleasures of dining on world-class locally-inspired dishes. The restaurant specializes in prix fixe evening dining experiences in a casually elegant style.
