Overview

Barnstable House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-18)

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, wedding parties, business retreats, 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.

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.

A great place to host family and friends and for a special event.. Many have celebrated a special birthday of event in the yard or in our renovated barn. We have caterers available to assist in planning your special event.

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.

Private gathering:

This is a fun and historic house to live in. It is full of history and this history is written up in many books and magazines but a fun one to revisit before a trip to The Tavern might be Cape Cod. It mentions the Tavern many times as it was a place where the Whigs met and Patrick Henry was mentioned as a regular visitor as was many other important political figures of the time.

Keywords: Close to the ocean and many major attections this Large renovated historic property is located on 3+ acres of private grounds close to the village of Barnstable.

Why The Owner chose Barnstable

This location is ideal. We are located just 7/10th of a mile to the local Millway beach and only a few miles to a large body of fresh water. Also we are within walking distance, about 2 blocks to the Village of Barnstable and the restauants, theater, village stores, ice cream, coffee, antiques and post office. We are also only a few miles to the center of Hyannis, the capes "city". Here you will find BJ's, Home Depot, Stop and SHop, Shaws, Panara Bread, Macys, The large theaters, the mall, Trader Joes, The Christmas Tree Shop and Barnes and Noble. Also the harbor has the Whale Watch boat, deep sea fishing boats and a good seafood restaurant that is right at this harbor. If you wish to explore either sid of end of the Cape then you are centrally located to be able to go to Provincetown or to Wareham.

What makes this house unique

This one is an easy one to answer. We have owned this property for 12 + years. We have always loved the character of older houses and this one just exudes this character. The woodwork is a fine example of the detail of the period and the setting near the village makes the location ideal to get to dinner, swimming, the harbor, the antique shops and the theater. We always host friends and family at the house when we are there and especially fun to have so many be able to stay overnight and spend quality time together. We have both Thanksgiving and Christmas there and host all of our Grandchildren ages from 1-13. I fun place to gather for all.

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.

Wonderful home!!

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of 11-14 women and fell in love with the Crocker Tavern. With all those ladies the number of bathrooms is very important !!! No problem here (last home only had two). The bedrooms are all very large and comfortable. The yard is beautiful, we ate lunch out on the patio enjoying the sun. The barn is wonderful for rug hooking, dancing etc etc. walking to town is a breeze, Oz is a wonderful and charming boutique. The beach and whale watching cruises are just around the corner. We hope to come back in May and again in Sept.

The Crocker Tavern is just plain WONDERFUL!!! We are a group of 11-14 women (bathrooms are usually a sore subject-last house only had two-the tavern has 6+ so no problems). The house is very comfortable and all the bedrooms are very large. The yard is beautiful, had lunch on the patio. The barn is a great addition, from rug hooking to dancing. Walking distance to town. And don't forget Oz a great clothing store. Close to beaches and the whale watching cruises. We will go back thi spring and again in the fall

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!

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.
