Recently renovated, fresh clean linens, comfortable beds, HOT TUB, firepit, deck with views of park. NO EVENTS, PARTIES-MUST RESPECT HISTORIC HOME & HAVE A GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY.

    The space
    THIS IS A HISTORICAL HOME, built on post, beams & timbers over 250 years old, AND ALTHOUGH it can house a lot of guests (because of the bunk rooms in the walkout level) the MAX ADULT OCCUPANCY IS 12. (you can have more if children). We ABSOLUTELY cannot allow large groups, and this can not be a party house, dancing, bouncing, or hosting events on the main floors. NO PARTIES, etc putting stress on the older timbers. Recent nail head in flooring due to old timbers and larger groups have been removed and replaced with screws due to problem with prior larger parties.

    POOL/water park is across the street at the John Carver Hotel and you can purchase day passes and its entirely controlled by the Hotel. It is open year round but They limit passes and during COVID may not sell to outside patrons. Please check with the hotel for their current policy.

    The property is directly on the town brook with a nice sitting area and 1 block away from the waterfront. Just off Main street and close to all attractions.

    The beach is two miles away or the waterfront kids playground a mile. Also a skate park and basketball courts are 1 block away as well as the Gristmill and swan ponds.

    HOT TUB is on property and open all year.

    Bike rentals available by a nearby company and will drop off at the house.

    Surveillance cameras monitor exterior for compliance of the good neighbor policy.

    PETS NEED PRIOR APPROVAL and agreement to our pet policy. You must send us a message if you are bringing a pet and will need to pay a pet fee.



    NO LATE NIGHTS, LOUD MUSIC, NOISE. If you are part of larger group/event staying at the John Carver, this house cannot be the host house for all your guests and cannot host large events/parties.

    Having a GOOD NEIGHBOR policy is critical for communities everywhere, and managing the relationship with neighbors, plus the other challenges of hosting events, trash, wear and tear on a home of hosting guests is something we prefer to avoid.

    You must follow check out procedures which include removing trash limited to the 2 bins provided, stripping beds and starting a load of laundry and dishes.

    SUMMER CHECK OUT is 10am (Memorial Day to Labor Day)

    The house is listed with 6 bedroom, but not the larger bunk room opens up to the downstairs' sleeping area.

    Our property doesn’t have charging capabilities for electric vehicles however you may be able to use the outdoor outlet. Please make sure to get our approval prior so we can monitor in case of any issues and the fee will be $15/night.

    Since we use independent cleaner and maintenance companies that make their own schedule, we cannot guarantee an early check in or late check out. If you wish to request an early or late check in/out, please reach out the day of your arrival or departure. We may have to charge a $25 fee to coordinate with the cleaner and maintenance companies to adjust their schedule. We often have same day check in and out, so if you would like to secure an early check in or late check out in advance, it will require us to block and adjust the rate for an additional night.
