About Owner

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 and research after an unfortunate incident of a stalker, but the proverbial lemonade from lemon story was the start of my new company, Guardian Girls and the Guardian Girls Foundation. Guardian Girls sells self protection products and the proceeds go to benefit shelters for battered and abused women. My son has been the business brains behind it all, and what a joy it is to work with him.

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.

Owner purchased this house in 1970

Why Owner chose Sandwich

The house was bought by my husband before I was even in the picture. He wanted it to be another 'Animal House'. I met him at one of his 'parties' and fell in love on the spot....the party guest who never left, with a family large enough to fill all the rooms and more.

. So here we are 44 years later, all from a party at the 'Animal House' aka the Newcomb Tavern 1693.

A great house for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
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!

A unique setting for a wonderful family summer get-together

  • 5 of 5
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.

Beautiful Family Home

  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. It is so important to me that anyone who stays at the Newcomb Tavern feel as if they are the most important people on Cape Cod and enjoy the surroundings of the late 1600's with the amenities of the 21st century. It has always been a core belief that " it is in giving that we receive". Everyone who has ever stayed in the Newcomb Tavern has always mentioned that it is a HAPPY HOUSE....may it always be so !

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!
