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

Author: , September 7th, 2017

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!

Women's Week In Provincetown

Summer may be officially ending but the fun is just beginning in Provincetown. The historically gay and lesbian mecca on the tip of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, has enjoyed a beautiful and rainbow-festooned summer, including appearances from legendary LGBT performers, and even a visit by Hillary Clinton and Cher. And now it’s gearing up for even more femme-forward festivities! Aside from the general pleasure of strolling Commercial Street hand-in-hand with your love, there are some big events to put in your calendar.

The 32nd Annual Women’s Week In Provincetown is now the longest-running women’s cultural festival in the country. This year the Festival runs from October 7 through October 16. Mary Lambert and Our Lady J round up the lineup of superstars who will perform in a benefit concert for Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund, which aims to alleviate LGBT youth homelessness. The closing night concert will be followed by an exclusive Rainbow Party and is one of several events produced by the Women Innkeepers of Provincetown.

The entire Women’s Week will be a star-studded celebration of culture and community with Kate Clinton, Lily Tomlin, Karen Williams, Vickie Shaw, Julie Goldman, Suzanne Westenhoefer, Poppy Champlin, Jennie McNulty, Cameron Esposito, Rhea Butcher, Cris Williamson, Susan Werner, Suede, Zoe Lewis, Laura Zucker, and more performing. Sporty dykes are not left out, with events that include pickup basketball, an annual golf tournament, and Kate Clinton’s always-riotous Touch Football Classic.

Lesbian Travel: Postcards from Provincetown

Author: , August 5th, 2016

Provincetown

Greetings from the tiny island nation of Provincetown, Mass. Provincetown is the town that theme weekends built. Thematically, we have already cycled through Film Festival, Portuguese Festival, Circuit Party/Fourth of July, and Bear Week. Of course while famous for our separatist-crowd-pleasing theme weeks, we have also been cycling through many other phases.

Florally, we have cycled through crocus, daffodils, tulips, lilac, wisteria, iris, rose, day lily, and hydrangea. Maritimely speaking, if seal-shark-orca is a food chain cycle, we are in its jaws. Heartbreakingly, we have cycled through the caterpillar-pupa-gypsy moth life cycle. In spring, caterpillars defoliated wide swaths of mid-Atlantic and Cape trees. Naturalists blame the devastation on the lack of moisture that is essential to grow a caterpillar-killing fungus. Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort blames it on Hillary Clinton.

Last week’s theme was Girlsplash! And yes, the organizers trademarked the exclamation point before poor Jeb! even thought of it.
