The Rose and Crown is a classic Georgian "square rigger," built in the 1780's. Its orderly design was the model for many other homes in Provincetown. The guest house sits behind an ornate iron fence containing a lavish garden. "Jane Elizabeth," a ship's figurehead, greets visitors from her post above the paneled front door.

During restoration wide floorboards were uncovered, and pegged posts and beams exposed. An appealing clutter of interesting Victorian antiques and artwork fills every nook and cranny.

Each guest room has its own special feature. The Crown Room has exposed beams and oriental rugs, while the brick fireplace wall in the Rose Room displays a mysterious portrait of a girl holding a single rose.

In addition to the rooms in the inn, the Rose and Crown has an apartment and a free standing cottage, both with kitchen facilities. The inn is particularly appealing in the off season, when the pace slows and guests can relax in the living room and enjoy a breakfast of freshly baked breads and the Rose and Crown's special coffee.
