Welcome to Boston’s Taylor House, a gracious sixteen room Victorian home in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood.
Journeys End Lodge can be your home base in the Berkshires from which you comfortably pursue your objectives. Each morning, you’ll enjoy a fresh, homemade breakfast following which you can fulfill your day’s calendar and return to the warmth and comfort of the Lodge.
An Adirondak Great Camp log home with modern-day amenities, Journey’s End Lodge provides an intimate venue for business and social meetings; where artists can display and musicians can rehearse their art; and, where any tired traveler can rest.
We’re 20 minutes from Jiminy Peak and Mount Greylock in the Berkshires, and 40 from Mount Snow and the skiing, mountain biking, hiking and spectacular views each affords. Journey’s End Lodge is ideally situated for motorcycle tours tracing Vermont or Berkshire mountain roads and we are but a brief drive to your choice of golf or kayaking experience.
At the end of your day and at home at Journey’s End Lodge, relax with your family and friends in our Great Room and enjoy the coffee, hot chocolate and homemade pastries we provide.
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 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.
Located on Gloucester Harbor, in view of the iconic Man at the Wheel statue, Harborview Inn is walking distance to downtown’s restaurants, museums, shops, brew pubs, coffee shops, whale watches and other seaport attractions.
The rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated, each with a distinguished and charming style. Most of the rooms feature a spectacular harbor view and all have private baths, AC, and cable TV. Guests are invited to a complimentary continental breakfast of fresh fruits and pastries from around the Cape Ann area.

Ptown Dan and his partner Bob own the Somerset House Inn, an award winning Provincetown Bed and Breakfast. Named the Best Bed and Breakfast on Cape Cod for 2018 by Cape Cod Magazine the Somerset House Inn is in the perfect Commercial Street location across the street from the water and walking distance to everything. Check our visit our web site to make your reservations. We look forward to welcoming you to Provincetown this Spring.
Cape Cod is a tiny peninsula that stretches out, claw-like, from Massachusetts’ capital Boston. It’s about a three-hour drive, making it a popular summer escape for Bostonians and New Yorkers.
At the tip is the popular party town of Provincetown, the town that gave Anthony Bourdain his start in the kitchen as a dishwasher and a line cook. He referred to it as “paradise”, and once you’re there, you understand why. Long since known as a tolerant, free-spirited artist enclave, it’s also the hottest gay and lesbian destination in the north-east US.
You can still visit two places he name-checks in Parts Unknown’s Massachussetts episode. The first is the Lobster Pot, a two-storey whitewashed corner building on the beach with neon signage and splendid views. Bourdain missed its Portuguese kale soup, a local dish introduced by fishermen from the Azores, islands that lie between Provincetown and Portugal.
Coming to Provincetown? Somerset House Inn B&B offers year round lodging in the heart of Ptown, on Commercial Street just across from the bay.
We have a number of guestrooms with bay views, and can provide a friendly alternative to an impersonal hotel.
We serve our guests a hot breakfast each morning between 8:30 and 10:30 am – breakfast includes coffee, juice, and hot tea, pastries, fruit, cereal, yogurt, and a hot dish. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions or needs in advance so we can provide something appropriate for you. We also provide evening cocktails (including wine and beer and our own secret Love Potion margarita), and host a barbeque party on Saturdays in the summertime.
If you’re commemorating your anniversary or celebrating some other important event, please let us know, and we’ll be happy to help make it memorable.
There’s a lot of action to be found in Boston these days…and certainly of the Lights! Camera!…Hollywood sort. “Amy Schumer shot I Feel Pretty here and was just dragging people into scenes off the street,” a guide for On Location Tours (www.onlocationtours.com/tour/boston-tv-movie) tells me during a Boston movie locations tour. Openly gay director Gus Van Sant also shot Good Will Hunting in the area, while Boston has also been a location for LGBT faves Legally Blonde and Ally McBeal. In fact, early 2018 saw Kevin Bacon, Jill Hennessy, Cathy Moriarty, and Aldis Hodge around for a new Showtime pilot, crime drama City on a Hill.
Location shooting aside, Boston is also seeing vibrant programs, festivals, and initiatives that promote movies, including those about and by LGBTQ folks. Besides the annual LGBT Film Festival, Wicked Queer(www.wicked queer.org), celebrating its 35th anniversary in March 2019, Autograph Collection’s 136-room The Envoy Hotel (70 Sleeper St. Tel: 617-338-3030. www.theenvoyhotel.com) launched a film-centric program in September2017 with a special screening and appearance by Maggie Gyllenhaal.
The Autograph Collection initiative includes a library of indie films for hotels’ guests to stream on their TVs or iPads, and partnership/residency program with screenplay resource The Black List (www.blcklst.com), whose annual survey of the best unproduced screenplays has seen writers get launched into the Hollywood stratosphere. First time screenwriter Elizabeth Hannah’s The Post, turned into a Best Picture Oscar nominee by director Stephen Spielberg, was once on the list, while Jared Frieder, with a 2015 Black List script about a gay teenager, Three Months, went on to land a writing gig on MTV’s series Sweet/Vicious.
