Affordable Travel Guide to White Porch Inn

White Porch Inn Provincetown, Cape Cod

White Porch Inn

The exterior of the White Porch Inn embodies all that is picture perfect about a seaside holiday: white clapboard, an inviting porch, pretty gardens, and an idyllic locale. Inside, the same nuance is reflected in the serene coastal décor with its gentle earth tones and white. You’ll feel the tension cascade out of your body; love at first sight!

Situated in the popular resort of Provincetown, Massachusetts, right at the tip of Cape Cod, the White Porch inn opened in 2007, with an in-house art gallery, known as “In(n) Art”; it features international works. Rates run from about $275 to $400 in peak season, but better rates (from $170 to $300) can be had in shoulder seasons when the weather is still lovely and the crowds are gone, a perfect time to enjoy the colors and respite of New England.

Local sites of interest and lighthouses have leant their names to the rooms, with monikers like “Race Point Light”, “Herring Cove” and “Hatches Harbor”. Rooms are situated in the main house and the carriage house, all having en-suite bathrooms. Some offer extras such as fireplaces, spa-tubs and private verandahs, and many have water or harbor views. It’s a romantic, peaceful setting.

Pleasures of Provincetown

While the town and its beaches are friendly to one and all, this is a well-known favorite vacation spot for the LGBT community. One of America’s top rated gay bars is right here in this little town of 3,000 permanent residents. Although the population can swell to 60,000 in high season, it still remains home for a creative group numbering dozens of writers and artists, some very famous. But it’s the beach that is the ultimate draw, and the feel-good sensibility of a coastal resort town. It’s like taking a deep sigh and lingering there.

As you walk the streets and beaches, you may encounter the likes of (or ghosts of) some noteworthy residents, past and present, such as:

  • Norman Mailer, author and founder of The Village Voice
  • Kurt Vonnegut, writer
  • Tennessee Williams and Eugene O’Neill, playwrights
  • John Waters, filmmaker (with the perfect name for a beach town…)
  • Marc Jacobs, fashion designer

The White Porch Inn epitomizes New England coastal living and vacationing. It entices guests to relax, slow their pace and shift to a calmer, easier lifestyle for one night, a weekend, or longer. Linger longer here; you’ll be thankful that you did. Find out more about the White Porch Inn at
