Sunrise on Provincetown Harbor is a breath of fresh air you will always remember. The slow ebb of the tide and strolls along the shore are here, in the heart of the East End Gallery District.
The Landing offers fully equipped studio and one bedroom cottages perched right on the beach. There are expansive decks areas, lovely gardens, and views to the end of the Earth.
Life here at Poor Richard's Landing is much the same as it was in the 1930s when a local Portuguese family started Camp Avellar, offering food and housing to the working artists and writers arriving in Provincetown with more inspiration than resources. The family mingled with and supported the working artists by providing inexpensive housing and work space. Mrs. Angelina "Ma" Avellar befriended such writers as Sinclair Lewis and Eugene O'Neill prior to their notoriety.
Today, The Landing remains "a gathering place" for artists and their friends, for collaborative works and social throw downs. Tennessee Williams, filmmaker John Waters, Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Cunningham and feminist / writer Kate Millet have either resided or worked at The Landing.
The Landing is perhaps the only property of its kind remaining in town today. Whether you are in Town for a week or for the summer, bring the paint box, the camera…whatever your artistic craving…here is the place you can truly kick back, relax and wallow in the inspiration of Cape Light.
