Built in 1850 for Captain Winthrop Baker and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, Green Gates is now owned by Cape Codders who have carefully renovated and furnished it with comfortable furniture and modern amenities. It includes a grand dining room with seating for ten (and a high chair for one) and a freshly remodeled kitchen featuring marble countertops and wide hemlock boards discovered in the attic.
With over 3,800 square feet of living area (including twelve separate rooms), this unusually large family-friendly property includes plenty of space for relaxed socializing as well as quiet corners for reading and napping. Guests can flow easily between living room, library, reading room, games area, TV room, kitchen and dining room, without leaving the first floor. The renovated kitchen and butlers pantry are fully stocked with dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, lobster pots, herbs and spices. The six bedrooms are air conditioned and configured with seven beds:
Mary Oliver Room - King
Kurt Vonnegut Room - King
Edward Gorey Room - Queen
Henry David Thoreau Room - Full
Henry Beston Room - Full
Thornton Burgess Room - Two twins
All bedrooms are located on the second floor, except the Burgess Room which is on the first floor.
We also have a comfortable pull-out mattress and a pack-and-play crib to allow little ones to sleep near the grown-ups in one of the larger bedrooms.
Three bathrooms (including one split bath) upstairs, each accessible via hallways, and a half bathroom downstairs keep even larger groups in comfort.
The sweeping backyard has a brick patio, a gas grill, a large lawn for games, and outdoor seating. There are beach chairs, beach towels, books, board games and puzzles for kids of all ages, and a large collection of classic movies and vinyl records. Other amenities include brand new washer/dryer, Wi-Fi Internet access, and 55-inch HDTV with cable. There is parking for three cars on site (and street parking nearby if necessary), bicycles in the garage, and we provide a beach pass which allows parking at dozens of local salt water and fresh water beaches. Hyannis is just five miles away. Your dream getaway is waiting; come make some memories!
Guests have full access to the entire two floor home, four space parking area, enormous enclosed backyard with gas grill, and cruiser bicycles for exploring the neighborhood. We welcome you to enjoy our extensive library of books, classic movies, and vinyl records. Beach chairs and beach towels provided too.

Другие важные подробности
During the summer season, we rent weekly from Sunday to Sunday (this allows our guests to avoid the Saturday crush of traffic onto and off the Cape).
We provide all bed linens and towels, and basics such as hand soap, dishwashing and laundry detergent, toilet paper, etc. The house will be professionally cleaned prior to your stay. At least one member of your group must be at least 28 years old.
The $375 deposit is refundable.
For the sake of all our guests, some of whom have allergies, we have a no smoking and no pets policy. On-site parking is limited to three cars (there is street parking nearby if necessary). Twelve guests maximum. We are happy to host family reunions and retreats, but because we are located in a quiet residential area we cannot allow weddings, receptions or student events.
Check in is 3 pm, check out is 10 am. During summer (June through August) we rent in the traditional fashion, weekly, from Sunday to Sunday, in whole week increments only.
We are proud to have been raised on Cape Cod, and bring the insight of locals with a boundless enthusiasm for travel to our historic property on the Captain's Mile in beautiful Yarmouth Port.
