Courtesy Sage Inn
In Provincetown, partners Diane DiCarlo and Jeanne Leszcynski have transformed the former Vixen Nightclub/Pilgrim House Hotel to the Sage Inn and Lounge, spending $1 million on renovations.
A former dance hall on the first floor is now a 1,200-square-foot event space outfitted with a built-in projector, a drop-down projection screen, room-darkening shades and a sound system.
A second space, a 450-square-foot upstairs meeting room, has a cathedral ceiling, a private deck, skylights and views of the Pilgrim Monument.
The 19-room inn has also snagged Lucio Garnica, a chef most recently with Wequassett Resort in Chatham.

Hy-Line Cruises, voted the Best Boat Line by Nantucket’s local newspaper for the past eight years, has a lineup of boats for private parties and small meetings.
The Patience is a replica of a early 1900s Maine coastal steamer with room for up to 100 passengers and a small band. The Patience cruises Lewis Bay from its dock in Hyannis.
The Viking accommodates up to 135 for its cruises on the calm waters of the Cape Cod Canal. It docks at Onset Town Pier.
For groups of 65 or fewer that would like to spend an afternoon fishing, the Sea Queen II leaves Ocean Street Dock in Hyannis staffed with experienced captains and crew for fishing in Nantucket Sound.
All of the boats sail from May through October.
The company also books meetings in its 50-person Harbour Room in Hy-Line Landing at the Ocean Street Dock. The octagonal space overlooks Hyannis Inner Harbor and activity along the docks.
