All About Our Historic Provincetown Buildings
The Captain's House
An 1830s whaling captain’s house built in the New England Federal Style this building contains ten guest rooms and several common areas for the use of all guests. The building features a roof deck for sunbathing (clothing optional) and extravagant views of the harbor and town; a second-floor deck overlooking the in-ground whirlpool; and one of the three guest lounges on the property. The lobby lounge is furnished in quintessential Cape Cod décor with early American antiques, Shaker style chairs and reproductions. A complimentary guest computer is available here for Internet access equipped with a printer.
Located on the interior of the property and situated in the courtyard near the pool and in-ground whirlpool, three cottage buildings house four deluxe rooms each with its own entrance. Cottages 111 and 112 are stand alone buildings and are our pet-friendly rooms. All pet-friendly reservations must be made via phone. The other cottage houses Room 114 with king-size bed and fireplace on the lower level and Room 115 above with king-size bed, fireplace and private deck.
The Carriage House
Located in the center of the compound, this building is built in the Shingle Style complete with ironwork railings and glass doors overlooking the pool. The rooms are styled in a coastal contemporary décor. The three lower guestrooms open directly to the pool while the three above have Juliet balconies for views over the entire property.
When President William Howard Taft dedicated the Pilgrim Monument in 1910, he stayed in this Carver Street house. Built in the 1840s by a banker, the building retains its original Second Empire Victorian exterior style, including an “Ace of Spades” band of cedar shakes along the mansard roof. The recent renovations restored the interior with period moldings, custom mahogany headboards and doors, and reproductions of 1860s and 1880s lighting fixtures.
The main entrance to the Brass Key, the Gatehouse is located off Bradford Street. The original 1790s Cape Cod home underwent expansion in the 1960s, which changed its façade to a New England Country Federal style. A second major renovation project during the 1990s created its current configuration. The Gatehouse contains the Reception Desk and the popular Shipwreck Lounge on the first floor. A large fireplace dominates the lobby complete with comfortable lounge furniture and bar. Three guestrooms are located on the second floor of this building.

The Queen Anne is also home to the Penthouse Suite, which occupies the entire third floor of the building.
