About the Innkeeper

Gary was born on the east coast and grew up in California where he still has family and business interests, the fortuitous return to this coast had him land in Provincetown a town which after many summers he has described as magical.

John grew up in Ireland after spending his early childhood in Boston with the requisite summers on the Cape, after school in New York he worked as an engineer and later in Finance and banking before putting up his slate in Provincetown. He has 3 brothers and 3 sisters and learned to cook in his grandmother’s kitchen and entertain in a country house in Ireland.
