Distinctive Inns of Provincetown Highlight: The Revere Guest House

Further highlighting our members, the Distinctive Inns of Provincetown presents to you the Revere Guest House bed and breakfast.

Just a half block from the hustle and bustle of busy Commercial Street is the modest Colonial house where Innkeeper Gary Albert Palochko welcomes you to get away from it all at his award-winning inn.  Named in honor of Gary’s grandfather, Albert LaRivere, the Inn offers six beautifully appointed guest rooms, all with private bath, plus a one-bedroom apartment with private entrance and fireplace, and a large two-room suite with a fireplace.  The home’s atmosphere is light and airy with plenty of windows and is beautifully appointed with antiques from all over the world.  Four rooms feature fireplaces for those colder-month visits, and two have whirlpool tubs: a perfect way to wind down before bed.  The Revere House also features a large roof-deck on the third level with amazing views of the town and Cape Cod Bay.

Just because the Revere House isn’t on the main drag of Commercial Street, you are still close to all the excitement Provincetown has to offer.  A very short walk down to the corner of the block will put you on Commercial Street just across from a public beach and right in front of some of the best restaurants in town..  From there, it’s up to you!

When you visit, you will be treated to welcoming amenities including use of one of the largest breakfast rooms an Inn has to offer, beautiful private gardens, an outdoor Jacuzzi hot tub, DVD collection, complementary Internet, in-room iPOD stands, and much, much more.  Of course, a tasty extended continental breakfast with homemade baked goodies and a large assortment of exotic teas is included on each morning of your stay.  The Revere House also partners with Jonathan Williams Salon and Spa which offers discounted services for Revere Guest House guests.

While the actual age of this home is unknown, maps from as early as 1830 show that it existed here in P-Town.  For a long time, not much was known about this home’s history.  But that all changed when Gary did some renovation work.  We won’t get into the details, but let’s just say that some small treasures were found, proof of an early owner was verified, and the source of the flowers growing outside (but nowhere else in town) was discovered.  To learn the whole story, check out this episode of HGTV’s If Walls Could Talk, Hidden Treasures Abound, which featured the Inn in June, 2007!

Revere House also features seasonal specials throughout the year, so be sure to check and see what is being offered when planning your visit!

So make plans now for your getaway to scenic Provincetown on the tip of Cape Cod and consider lodging at the Revere Guest House.
