Historic Crowne Pointe Inn
To sample some classic American history, albeit with a contemporary refresh, how about a stay at Provincetown’s luxurious Historic Crowne Pointe Inn. Provincetown is at the furthest point of the Cape Cod peninsula. The town has a bohemian, artistic vibe, with art galleries and independent shops to be explored. With stunning coastline, sand dunes and whale watching, there’s plenty to keep you occupied away from the town itself too. Flying from London to Boston takes a little over 7 hours, and you can then either connect and fly directly to Provincetown (taking just half an hour) or for the more scenic option, make use of the ferry which takes an hour and a half.
The Historic Crowne Pointe Inn & Spa is a beautifully restored Cape Cod Sea Captain’s estate turned boutique hotel. The décor offers a romantic feel, with original features and traditional design sitting perfectly in this stunning hotel. The outside is just as beautiful too; there is a landscaped courtyard and plenty of spots to sit and relax in the sun or shade. To protect the relaxed policy, no children or pets are allowed!
There are 35 rooms spread across 6 historic buildings on this impressive estate. Many feature fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. With queen or king-sized beds, oversized hypoallergenic down pillows and 450 thread count bed linens, you can be sure of a good nights sleep! The rooms include LED TVs with DVD players and access to the movie library, Keurig coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi. The most impressive of the rooms has to be the 2-storey Penthouse Residence which offers panoramic views of the town and a large sun deck.
Restaurants & Bars
The Pointe Restaurant and Wine Bar offers fine dining with a modern coastal influence. The vibrant atmosphere makes it a leading choice with locals and visitors alike. Fresh, local ingredients are sourced daily to create alluring and delicious dishes. The menu includes a range of seafood options as well as beef and pork items and vegetarian options too – something for everyone. The award-winning wine list is also not to be missed, neither are the cocktails served in the Pointe Bar.
Pool & Activities
The beautiful grounds also include a heated dipping pool and heated 10 person hot tub – perfect to soak those cares away. A must for your time here is a visit to the award winning Shui Spa – Exclusively Kiehl’s (the first independent hotel spa to offer the amazing range of Kiehl’s products and services). The spa is a tranquil, heavenly experience; with a warm mineral-soaking tub at the heart, a sauna and steam room and of course, full service treatment rooms in which you will be pampered and rejuvenated. All the treatments use Kiehl’s Skin Care Products, featuring the finest naturally derived ingredients. You really will leave an altogether more relaxed version of yourself!
Don’t miss the wine and cheese hour that the hotel hosts at 5 pm, the perfect start to your evening.
