HISTORIC CAPE COD HOME / CLOSE TO VILLAGE AND OCEAN. A FUN HISTORIC VENUE

Barnstable House Rental Photos and Description

7 BR, 6.5 BA, Sleeps 18 Max.

Exquisite antique tavern house nestled within a quaint village by the sea and centrally located to all Cape and Island attractions. Ideal location for family vacations, reunions, business outings, golf outings, etc. The tavern house has been meticulously restored and is one of Cape Cod's unique historic landmarks but is comfortably furnished for modern living. Set on 3.5 acres of land with gardens and rolling grass areas but with a wooded back yard setting. A large barn that is available for large gatherings but with a cozy and quaint decor welcomes you. Plan to host you next family gathering, cooperate outing or special event in this rusticly restored barn.

Family Reunions: Family reunions are our largest kinds of bookings. I think it is because we have 7 bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths but also that we have sitting areas in each of the bedrooms and 2 bedrooms on the first floor if someone can not do the stairs. We also have a yard with 2 acres of wood for privacy and another acre that is mowed and has nice gardens spread throughout and 2 patios to lounge about or have meals on. There is also a barn for recreation, games, or just to gather. We are located in the historic district considered the 'historic mile'. It is considered by most the prettiest and quaintest part of the Cape. You can walk to several nice restaurants and the village of Barnstable from this property. From the Barnstable harbor there is a whale watch boat that leaves for family outings and many deep sea fishing boats for hire. Come and enjoy a bit of history in this very historic property.

Birthdays, anniversary, friends on an outing: A quaint place to gather and host a special event. The Tavern has hosted many special family events such as birthdays, anniversaries and family reunions to name just a few. A wonderful place to gather.

Golf: For the golfer there are many courses to try out your talents. Some with water views and many that are a challenge to even the best golfer. Ask us for names to the local courses that we have tried or a list of the best Restaurants to host your group. We also have available several caters and or lobster bake grops to make your gathering even more memorable.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The Crocker Tavern House continues to receive top ratings and reviews from well over 90% of its rental guests. In response to a recent inaccurate review, the owners would like to document their consistent adherence to the following quality standards:



(1) Eight of the rooms are air-conditioned, which includes all of the bedrooms. In addition, filters are replaced in all of the air-conditioners at the beginning of the season, and the inventory is consistently updated.



(2) The Tavern is thoroughly cleaned on a four-hour schedule before all new rentals by the owners of Cape Cod Property Watch, who confirm that the highest standards of cleanliness are maintained, and that there is no mold.



(3) There are three staircases in the Tavern; all have appropriate safety railings that were installed when this home won a award for the BEST HISTORIC RESTORATION ON CAPE COD.



(4) The antique exterior stairs is an historic artifact to which the owners installed a railing for the safety and convenience of guests.



(5) Gardeners are hired throughout the season to maintain the beauty and serenity of the Tavern's bucolic setting; this service is non-intrusive as the gardeners are on-site just once a week during daytime periods.



(6) Given the consistency of top-ratings coupled with the above-referenced quality standards, the recent inaccurate review should be regarded as an aberration.

Bryan and I have always loved antique homes...this is our second one. It has been fun to decorate and pass along the history of this very famous Tavern. We hold all our family holidays at this house and for the past 13 years it has been a special place to gather for all our generations.

Anne Carlson purchased this house in 1999

We bought this house as income property and have always run it as a rental in seaon. We have had other rental property but this one has been a labor of love. We wanted an old house with charm....we certainly got that, and we wanted it to be large to accommodate all of our family in the off season.

The size of this house has been a plus. We have gathered large groups of golf friends each Fall and Spring before we open for the season and have found it to be a great place to cook, gather, and intertain. The kitchen is a good cooking kitchen and the barn a great place for the Grandkids and others to relax and play. The yard is large, private and level so lends itself to games, great views and privacy form both patios. Also the closeness to the Village of Barnstable means no need to get in a car for dinner or to get to the beach...and only 2 miles to Hyannis.

CROCKER TAVERN IS A GEM

  • 5 of 5
This past fall, my family and I had a reunion at the Crocker Tavern, and my stay left me with nothing but joyful and pleasant memories. I stayed at the tavern with my three children, my parents, my sister/her husband and her four kids, and my brother/his wife and his two kids. My father, a history buff, originally discovered the tavern in search of a historically rich home large enough for our immediate family to occupy. He instantaneously fell in love with the property, and the rest of us quickly followed.

There are two bedrooms downstairs and four on the second floor, each named after a famous historical figure. I had the pleasure of residing in the room on the first floor by the living room, named after Cornelius Crocker. My family fit comfortably between the different rooms, all of which had room for cots and cradles for the younger members of the family. Additionally, there are five full baths, eliminating the issue of managing bathroom time.

We all were able to have our privacy in our separate rooms, but we also LOVED being able to spend time together in the larger gathering rooms such as the living room and the dining room. When the reunion took place, we invited people into the tavern itself, but kept the primary center of activity in the adorable barn beside the house. We were able to set up chairs and tables with food inside of it, and tents in the beautiful yard. The backyard of the property is adorable, with beautiful flora and a charming little patio.

The owners of this property have done a fabulous job of decorating each and every room uniquely while preserving the charming historical elements of the home. Despite the back-in-time ambiance, the house is equipped with modern appliances. The kitchen has a stove, dishwasher, oven, microwave, refrigerator, plenty of pots and pans, and every utensil we could possibly need. This modern touch extends to the bedrooms with plenty of electrical sockets and a few televisions.

Another wonderful part of the Crocker Tavern is the wonderful location in Barnstable. Right down the street are several pleasant surprises: an adorable little market with a large stock of groceries, two delicious restaurants, a liquor store, a yoga studio, a library, and more. My family had a lovely time taking morning walks together down to the gorgeous beach less than a mile away. The kids were so excited to see all of the ships at the pier and everyone enjoyed the large and peaceful beach.

NICE WEDDING RECEPTION

  • 5 of 5
The tavern covered all bases for rain or shine for the wedding reception. Our out of town guests enjoyed staying and meeting in the historic and charming building. The beautiful grounds hosted our clam bake and we decorated the barn for dancing. We all walked to the nearby restaurant and grocery store and held wedding on nearby Millway beach.

MOLD MOLD EVERYWHERE!

  • 2 of 5
Charming home, but needs to be thoroughly updated and CLEANED! The air conditioners were full of mold, as well as some of the bathrooms. Not kid-friendly at all.

THE PERFECT HOUSE FOR A LARGE FAMILY

  • 4 of 5
Great location, 5 min walk to cute town, 10 min to beach. The house was big enough for all of us, so many bathrooms! the Barn is the perfect spot for a family party and the grounds are very pretty. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the area, or a group looking for a place large enough to have a meeting or reunion.

VASCONCELLOS' CELEBRATION OF DAD'S 80TH BIRTHDAY

Vasconcellos' Celebration of Dad's 80th Birthday
  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect for our family's celebration of our Dad's 80th birthday. The pictures on the website perfectly depict the house and barn as it is. There were 12 of us that stayed overnight for the weekend and all of us were very comfortable. The house made us feel like we were home. The barn was perfect for our little party on Saturday night when we were joined by the 12 other members of our immediate family. There was lots of great food and dancing that night in the barn. The house and barn were very clean and met all of our needs. Anne Carlson, property owner, was gracious enough to meet us at the property 2 weeks prior in order to go over the details. She was so great with all of our questions and inquiries. On Saturday some of us walked thru Barnstable center and down to the beach since the weather was perfect (distance is less than a mile to the beach). I would definitely recommend this house to family and friends.

BEAUTIFUL SPOT FOR MY WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented the Crocker Tavern House as the location for our wedding and it was absolutely fabulous. The house was large enough for both of our families to stay under one roof and spend an unforgettable week together. We had a great week at the Cape with many trips to the beach and lots of time just relaxing and enjoying each other's company at the Crocker Tavern. At the end of the week we had our wedding ceremony in the backyard amid the beautiful gardens. We held our reception in the gorgeous restored barn which was large enough for our families as well as other invited guests. We can't say enough about how great the Crocker Tavern was. In fact, our families have now decided to make it a yearly summer event - a family reunion of sorts since we're all spread across the country :-)
