The Provincetown Banner
"The Animal Welfare Committee started in Provincetown by Elizabeth G. Brooke, insuring all companion animals enter a much dog populated town with awareness and ample doggie stations! Brooke has donated and currently supplies the doggie stations with bags filled weekly on her dime. Very attractive stations, other towns have called Brooke and inquired further about their town joining in this crusade. Take a look in Provincetown's Bas Relief park to see Brooke's latest mission for this town. [Elizabeth] Brooke recently went in front of the Selectmen to start the awareness and receive their blessing to get the ball rolling (as it were) for the The Dog Park!"
2007-2008 and still reaching the stars
In 2007 Gabriel's broke all year round occupancy records for Provincetown and was chosen by The Summer Sunday Edition of The New York Times and The Boston Globe as one of the top places to stay on Cape Cod.
The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism
"2008 already shows the signs of breaking 2007's numbers!" The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism has chosen Gabriel's as their only 2008 destination for the entire Cape and Islands. Gabriel's not only has a featured page in their world wide publication but is currently having syndicated articles published, spun off the MOTT Guide.
Ms. Brooke's vision is now her legacy
Provincetown's economy is forever changed because of one women's perseverance to make a difference.
Be the change you want to see in the world
To change the world, you don't have to be loud.
You don't have to be eloquent.
You don't have to be elected.
You don't even have to have a well laid out plan.
You do, however, have to be committed.
Elizabeth Brooke was undoubtedly one of the most committed women in Provincetown's history that unselfishly made a forever mark for the town she called home.
From across the distant shores, over one million people have passed through the doors of Gabriel's.
They have all sought or found, laughter, peace, adventure and respite.
More souls that can be counted have their final resting place on this property.
Today it is documented as the oldest running women owned guesthouse on the globe, yes, the globe.
It is the oldest women owned guesthouse in Provincetown.
It is one of the oldest businesses remaining in Provincetown.
