Other Vacation Rental Amenities
This property is located right in the middle of an area that is full of activities for all ages. The harbor has all that a boater or beach goer needs but there is also a great variety of both salt and fresh water ponds. The area is also full of many antique shops and stores along the historic mile of the Capes Ole Kings Highway or 6A that are fun to explore. There are many nature trails or museums that cater to educating children and adults about the Cape and its history and natural preserves. A dune buggy ride on the sands of Provicetown is a great way to spend an evening. A trip to Nasset Beach is always a great take on a windy day with a kite. So much to do for all ages within a short distance.

Guestbook

I can't tell you how surprised we all were when we arrived at the charming Crocker House. My friends were like kids in a candy store, touring all the distinctive rooms and choosing their bedroom for their stay. The kitchen and dining room provided amazing gathering space for us, as did the lovely patio. We loved how the house has been modernized and updated without compromising its historical importance. We apprediated the cleanliness and well stocked accomodations and amazing location. Our reunion was a grand success and will be long remembered bu us and our longtime friends.

Great location, 5 min walk to a cute town and beach. The house was big enough for all of us, somany 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 teh area or a group looking for a place large enough to have a meeting or reunion.

My husband and I rented the Crocker Tavern as the location for our wedding and it was absolutely fabulous. The house was large enough for both of our families to stay under one roof and spend an unforgettable week together. We had a great week at the Cape with many trips to the beach and lots of time just relazing and enjoying each others company at the Tavern . At the end of the week we had our wedding ceremony in the backyard amid the beautiful gardens. We held our reception in the gorgeous restored barn which was large enough for our families as well as other invited guests. We cant say enough about how great the Crocker Tavern was. In fact our familes have now decided to make it a yearly summer event. A family reunion of sorts since we are all spread across the country.
