The Historic Newcomb Tavern built in1693 is surrounded by expansive and beautifully landscaped lush gardens with two outdoor terraces and a fountain and one with a beautiful pergola overlooking the expansive backyard and gardens.. The house is lavishly furnished with period antiques and is located in the heart of the historic district, next to a 1600's Grist Mill, on a lake and approximately one mile from the ocean. Walk down the tree lined scenic street to Heritage Museum and Gardens, walk across the street around the pond to the Thornton Burgess Museum or the famous Historic Hoxie House built in 1637 or over to the Dunbar Tea Room or just over to the Sandwich Glass Museum. You can envision yourself in the middle of a Historic New England Village with beauty all around.
A short walk to Heritage Museum and Gardens, across the street from the Sandwich Glass Museum and steps away from several restaurants and fine shops. This stately 1693 Colonial Inn is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. It is one of the most photographed homes on Cape Cod because of its location on Shawme Pond with the Grist Mill, the Dunbar Tea Room, the First Church with its grand Steeple and more importantly its historical place in the Revolutionary War.
The Newcomb Tavern, built in 1693, is a true gift and now it is my turn to be the best caretaker I can be so it can be passed on to others for many generations to come.
You will find so many artifacts from the world over, my favorites being treasures from Cape Cod.
I left the field of medicine to start a company, GuardianGirls.com that helps women to stay safe with the use of our many Pepper Sprays etc.
The only difficulty is that I have had to base the business out of Florida as Massachusetts is still in the dark ages when it comes to laws allowing women to have pepper spray, so much for freedom to keep oneself safe.
I have been so honored to share my home with others and donate it to so many causes both in the US and abroad. The house has so much historical significance with the beginning of the Colonists coming over from Europe. You can see what the early settlers had for accommodations in the early 1700's as there have been so few changes to the house. What a treasure the Newcomb Tavern 1693 is for generations to come.
Owner purchased this house in 1970
The house was bought from the Newcomb Family who had it since 1693. I consider it to be a treasure and it has been listed on the National Registry of Historic Places since its inception. The Newcomb Tavern 1693 is restored to the beauty of the Colonial Architecture unique to this property. It is the oldest Tavern on Cape Cod and has the original Tavern license. How easy it is to step into the past before the Colonies decided to break away from the King of England and before the cry of 'Taxation without Representation'.
The Newcomb Tavern 1693 now has all of the amenities of the 21st century but delicately hidden.
The Historical Architecture of the true Colonial House but with very high ceilings and closets in all of the bedrooms ( unique for the period ). It is a unique house to be in the Newcomb Family until we bought it, and it is still filled with so many artifacts from the period before the Revolutionary War. The Village of Sandwich is a step back in time with so many homes that date back to the 1600's and 1700's. The Grist Mill and Lake in front of the house was used by early Colonists to grind their corn, wheat and barley. The Town keeps it in pristine condition to be seen in operation during the season.
This is a one of a kind house, so elegant, original in its' architecture with so few changes from when it was built in 1693. Take a step into the period before the thought of separation from the King was even considered.
Rented with a large group of old friends. House has great atmosphere, several distinctive rooms for sitting, talking, dining. Great location, convenient to many Cape Cod activities. Owner was helpful, attentive to our needs and questions. Great value for the price.
We stayed at the Newcomb Tavern for our family reunion (spanning 3 generations) and it was a wonderful place to spend our week together. The house is a true gem and has both the character of an old house and the conveniences of a modern house. Yvonne was great to work with, very friendly, and very accomodating in making sure our stay was nothing less than we expected. I would definitely recommend the Newcomb Tavern!
We stayed for a week in the summer with our children and grandchildren -- 13 in all. The home itself is spectacular -- full of antiques and gorgeous furnishings. We all really felt the magic and history of the place, but not in a stuffy way. Croquet on the lawn; reading children's books aloud under the spreading branches of a wonderful tree in the yard; our 1 1/2 year-old greeting "George" every morning as she addressed his bust in the kitchen; playing the grand piano; walks around Shawme Pond -- these are only a few of the memories that are now part of our family's shared history. Yvonne is more than an owner; she is one of those rare generous souls who makes sure everything is more than perfect for her guests and becomes a family friend.
We recently had our wedding at this beautiful home with our family and close friends. Everyone that stayed with us fell in love with this house. And it was the perfect setting for an intimate small wedding, we could not have asked for more. The owner of the home made us feel like we were family and pulled out all the stops for us. We would definitely recommend this rental property for anyone looking for a beautiful home to enjoy with their family and friends. The pictures displayed online are true in nature and seeing is believing, very spacious, clean and well maintained. There is a pond across the way with beautiful swans,ducks and you can fish in it. Walk thru town and see the Glass Museum, plenty of sights to see.
Charming, comfortable, spacious, picturesque, etc, etc! Filled this lovely Tavern with a bakers dozen , plenty of room. Upper cape with easy access to cape, Boston, Newport. We will return for another enchanted adventure.
The house and location are even better than the
pictures show. It was a perfect place for our family
reunion. The owner provided us with everything we
needed to feel at home and comfortable. The
featherbed was so luxurious. In the evenings, we
enjoyed duets on the piano from those in our group
who played. Easy walk into town and to the
beaches. Do stay in this marvelous and wonderfully
preserved house if you can!
Other Activities: Boating, racquetball, shopping, wildlife viewing, basketball, mini golf.
