Truly Affordable Elegance - FROMMERS|
The Oxford offers a unique setting for a romantic weekend get-away or summer vacation. The perfect balance of luxurious accommodations in a warm, relaxed and secluded environment help to create a peaceful oasis within this unique community called Provincetown.
Within The Oxford we offer a totally smoke free environment. Every guest room has been elegantly furnished and has as standard: a queen bed with king down comforter, private or semi-private bath, full air conditioning, linen bath robes, Gilchrist & Soames bathroom products, hairdryer, color TV/VCR on cable/HBO, video library, CD/radio player, telephone with voicemail and data port and refrigerator. For added luxury, all the first floor rooms have log fireplaces.
In the cooler months, the "English country house" style drawing room is the perfect place to sit in front of a log fire and relax. It is up to you whether you choose to snooze on the over-stuffed sofa, chat with old and new friends, read a good book, or simply watch a video from our extensive complimentary video library. Whatever you do, you will find that our English antiques, original Provincetown artworks, soft classical music or cool jazz and that warming glass of sherry or port all contribute to create a wonderfully cozy and relaxed ambiance.
The spring and summer offer other pleasures. The front veranda enjoys the full morning sun and overlooks a stunning English country garden complete with a Haddestone "Kew" fountain, brick pathways, Lutyen's seat and flower beds that continuously change with the seasons; from daffodils, tulips, Jacobs Ladder, wisteria and giant aliums in the spring to larkspur, foxgloves, Japanese anemones, roses and lilies through the summer months.
The back deck surrounds an 80 year old blue spruce tree that sits amidst 17 varieties of hosta. A Japanese granite fountain provides the best background music with which to relax.
The deck also provides a great place to enjoy breakfast or lunch, or a glass of wine in the evening.
Each day, wake to the unmistakable aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the smell of freshly baked cakes and breads straight from the oven. Help yourself to our breakfast of fruit juice, fresh fruits, yogurts, cereals, daily baked cakes and breads, and a selection of teas or coffee, and eat around the dining table in the dining room, or head outside to the seclusion of our garden patio or garden veranda. Quietly browse the morning papers or swap stories and memories with other guests. The choice is yours.
The Oxford is located in the favored West End of town in the unique neighborhood of artisan cottages and houses. It sits on the corner of Cottage St and Tremont St surrounded by an English country garden and within a few minute's walk of everything - health clubs, food and liquor stores, bike hire, "Tea Dance", restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, galleries, the beach and ocean. Perfectly located to be close to everything but at the same time just far enough from the hustle and bustle of Commercial St, it provides the peace and quiet needed to truly rest and relax.
The reputation and popularity of The Oxford has grown mainly through word of mouth and personal recommendations. It continues to receive national and international acclaim, and is recognized as one of Provincetown's most prestigious guest houses.
