About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

THE TREE HOUSE Overlooking Provincetown harbor and near the center of town at 359 Commercial Street, THE TREE HOUSE offers amazing unobstructed views of the town pier, harbor and Cape Cod Bay from five picture windows, and from its private deck. It's called “The Tree House” not just because of its bird’s-eye views, but because of its walnut floors, its pine walls and ceilings, its Mission oak panels. You'll find country antiques, French doors, stained glass, a rocking chair, skylights and plants. There’s a queen-sized sleigh bed in the bedroom. The Tree House is only suitable for one or two people - the living room sofa is not a convertible. There's also a wonderful tiled tub in the bathroom, and a compact but well-equipped kitchen. It’s equipped with linens and towels, a washer/dryer, microwave oven, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, stereo system, cable television, video tape and DVD player, clock radio, fan, iron, air conditioning in the bedroom, and Wi-Fi. You'll even find a few books, games, DVD’s and CD's. The private deck is about 10x16’ and offers the best view in town! There is a reserved parking space at The Monument parking lot, about a quarter of a mile away. Sorry, but condo rules don’t allow pets. The Tree House is available Year-round. The London Times has called The Tree House an “idyllic spot for solitary creativity”!

About James Mack

I escaped from NYC to Provincetown in 1993 and have loved living here. I'm a singer and a choral conductor, leading the 140-voice Outer Cape Chorale here in town. My husband (yes, we live in Massachusetts and are legally married!) like to sing together - you can see us on YouTube. We've rented out two condos in town for over a decade. James also runs a guest house called Snug Cottage. We have two dogs and an overweight cat. We love to travel - especially to Hawaii and Italy!

James Mack purchased this condo in 1997

Why James Mack chose Provincetown

Provincetown has long been a little Paradise. It's located way out at the very end of Cape Cod. The water and the light are spectacular - and the people are wonderful. 'Diversity' is the word that comes to mind. Our little town began as a quaint fishing village, and has for the past hundred years been a haven for artists, writers, and musicians. It's also a popular vacation spot for gay and lesbian travelers. There are wonderful restaurants, nightclubs, and art galleries, and amazing views in every direction - not to mention sand dunes, beaches, whale watching boats, drag shows, street performers and friendly people.

What makes this condo unique

The Tree House is a great spot because it's in the center of town, but it still has a very private feeling. It's deck is amazing. You can see the lighthouse at the end of the Cape right across the bay, and you can watch fishing boats, sailboats and yachts coming into the harbor. I'll let the photos of The Tree House speak for themselves. It's a very special place!

Escape from the City

This was our third time at the Treehouse and we love it more every year. The apartment is clean, well lit, well furnished and centrally located. The deck is a delight for yoga, breakfast and stargazing. We love this place, we even got used the convenience store across the street, I sleep really well when I'm staying there.
