Antique Charm in Barnstable Village on Cape Cod's Northside
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

The Huckin's House was charming and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

This home was lovely, clean, charming and well decorated. It is definitely a historical home and one feels like they are stepping into the past. It is decorated beautifully and is very clean. The yard is especially nice. The owner left a wonderful goody basket of local products as well as basic food items in the kitchen for our use. The kitchen was extremely well stocked for any cooking you may want to do. The use of the parking and beach pass that was left for our use was an added bonus. There were also lots of books, DVDs and toys available for our use. We walked into town almost every day to the local coffee shop, homemade ice cream store and restaurants as well as taking an evening historical and haunted walking tour. The Barnstable Market had anything we might need. The listing was very accurate. Although it was no problem for us, it should be noted that the owner does mention that the stairs are very steep to the second floor and this could be problematic for very young or old guests. Also, if you need a 72* house in summer or more than one bathroom this house may not suit you. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. The owner was very nice and very accommodating from start to finish. It was a wonderful vacation.

Charming home close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our week-long stay in this adorable home. It was our first time on the Cape, and we quickly discovered the location was perfect for my husband and I and our 3-year-old son. We could quickly drive to a number of great beaches (Corporation Beach was our favorite), the shopping and amenities of Hyannis were close by and the rest of the Cape was easily accessible. Yet when we returned back to Barnstable Village it was completely peaceful and relaxing. Osterville Fish, Too, was a great casual fish & chips-type place on Barnstable Harbor, and we made it to Smitty's ice cream in town three times. The home itself was very clean and incredibly well-equipped (they thought of everything!), including plentiful pantry necessities, books, movies and even toys for our son. And the decor was simply lovely - I'd say magazine-worthy. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this house without hesitation.
