His mother had the house designed with an extra large kitchen to entertain more people at the kitchen table. He owes his success to his wonderful mother! “I watched her raise seven children alone due to my father’s early passing at a very young age. Her extraordinary spirit, joy of life, smile, and sheer determination are inspirational. I look forward to creating such joy with our guests at the Inn at Cook Street!”


History

We invite you to join us as our guests and become part of the history at The Inn at Cook Street in Provincetown.

Michael Cunningham, the author of "The Hours" and other notable works, finished the celebrated novel, "Home at the End of the World", as a winter guest.

Edward Hopper was also a frequent visitor when the Inn was privately owned by a wealthy merchant.

Also, Simie Maryles, renowned artist and owner of the gallery of the same name just around the corner on Commercial Street, was married in the Studio Cottage in 1975 and has since captured the enchantment of the Inn at Cook Street in some of her celebrated paintings.

This lovingly maintained, Greek Revival house was once owned by Sylvanius and Louisa Cook, a prominent mariner's family. The Cook’s were a wealthy merchant family. The Inn at Cook Street was part of five properties owned by the Cook family, who at one time owned adjacent homes on Cook, Commercial, and Bradford Streets.

The Artist’s Studio was originally one of Provincetown’s Black Smith’s Shops. This building is now the ”Studio Cottage”, located in our gardens.

It’s possible this house came from North Truro. The May 13, 1874, Advocate (page 2) states: “Capt. Hughes has moved his house from Truro and will erect it on parallel street near the eastern school house.” In the 1886 resident directory, Capt. Sylvanus N. Hughes is a mariner with a house on Bradford, corner of Cook. He is also on the 1880 atlas as being at that location.
