About This Listing
This studio is very private and peaceful. Secreted away at the rear of a historic west end house on a quiet one-way street, this is a great place to retreat to. The house was built in 1830 and at various times was a ship captain's home and later a headquarters for rum runners.
The studio maintains much of that historic atmosphere. The hardwood floors are original and the shower was built out of stone and concrete.
Yet all amenities are very modern and new, including high quality appliances, bed and linens.
The bed is in an alcove which helps make it feel separate from the open studio floor plan.
French doors lead to a new deck that offers both sun and shade and is a great spot for reading, sharing dinner and drinks or just listening to the birds chirp away.
The West End of Provincetown is considered very desirable as it is closer to the national seashore, convenient to downtown, yet considerably quieter than other Provincetown neighborhoods.
Enjoy, relax, restore!
The house maintains a tone of conscious courtesy. Quiet time is from 11 pm to 8 am. Visiting and socializing are wonderful, but this is definitely not a party house.
Patricia was efficient and attentive in communication. She gave great recommendations for things to do in Provincetown. Her place is neat and well-located: a quick walk to the water and commercial area, yet far enough away to seem secluded. A five minute drive took us to the Beech forest; an 8 minute walk took us to Stanley Kunitz's house. Look out for the fox! Thanks Patricia!
Great little place. Stayed there in the beginning of May and loved it. Patricia is a great host. We felt very welcome. The studio was clean and fresh. The patio was perfect especially when the sun was out. It is a few minutes walk to Commercial street. However, the location is quiet and peaceful. Will definitely be back.
Patricia came out when we arrived, welcomed us, showed us to our apartment, and gave us two home-brewed beers. She wasn't over-bearing, and the few house rules were basic and clear. Patricia gave us great dining suggestions when we asked, but she otherwise left us alone, which we appreciated a lot. The listing was accurate. The place was great, really small and cozy, humbly but carefully appointed. It felt like home. We also loved how easily we could walk to town. Even in the coldest weather, town never felt too far to reach by foot, and Mechanic street is indeed very quiet. I should also add that the home-brewed beers Patricia gave us were very good.
Patricia was amazing! Right when we got there she greeted us and showed us our studio and was able to give us great recommendations of places to eat and things to do. We were able to cook most of our food in the fully furnished kitchen and even after just one night the place really felt like home. The apartment was cozy, keeping in heat exceptionally well, even when the nights dipped down below freezing. Its location was perfect! Just five minutes walking from everything to do downtown, and only about ten minutes from the edge of the west side of town where the views of the marshland and tip of the cape were incredible. This was an amazing stay and Patricia was a fantastic host, able to accommodate our every need!
Upon our arrival and seeing the space, we were met by Patricia. We immediately felt welcomed. The directions to the Secret Studio were spot on. We found the Studio cozy and warm with the right amount of character and charm. Patricia was readily available when we had questions. We will definitely be back for another visit!
My partner and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. This apartment was cozy and the perfect size for a couple. Patricia was very inviting, and went so far as to give us a huge list of different restaurants to try and places to see. We used some of her recommendations and each of them was a success. I would definitely stay with her again!
