The newest queer inns in LGBTQ+ vacation spot, Provincetown, Massachusetts are the perfect canvas for renowned photographer Ron Amato.
Crew’s Quarters Boarding House
Stuart Jackson took ownership of Crew’s Quarters Boarding House in late 2020, but the inn has been queer-owned since 1959. It was known as The Ranch until 2003 when it became Crew’s Quarters and now Jackson says, “We are bringing our guests back to the glory days of Provincetown. Our vintage-inspired Boarding House provides an immersive experience to enter an all-male boarding house in the style of the early 20th century. I wanted to bring a vintage speakeasy-style queer guest house into being. You step back in time when you enter Crew’s Quarters Boarding House; we pay distinct homage to our queer brothers who would not have had the liberties, freedoms, and acceptance we do today as a community.”
Reflecting on what first drew him to P-town, Jackson says, “A queer community, with creativity at its core, located on a sand bar — how could I say no!” He loves the inn’s guests and the way “the vibe of the house changes constantly. I love the all the dynamics that occur — it’s like a new gay family is created every week.”
