Welcome To Green Gates

A comfortable, spacious, and historic sea captain’s estate on one of Cape Cod’s most beautiful shore drives.

From its prime location near the beach on Cape Cod’s quiet north shore, Green Gates is the picture-perfect setting for family vacations, reunions, and retreats. Escape, relax and reconnect in the generous living spaces and large landscaped backyard, or take a short walk (or beautiful bike ride) to nearby beaches, ponds, shops, restaurants, bakeries, cafes, galleries and the oldest family-owned ice cream parlor in the United States. Active groups will find options for swimming, kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, boating, fishing, shellfishing, crabbing, diving, hiking, golfing, tennis, whale watching, nature cruises, bird watching and more just minutes away.

This bright and airy “Old Cape” home, built in 1850 for Captain Winthrop Baker, is situated on the prestigious Captain’s Mile in Yarmouth Port (overlooking the Yarmouth Port Green) and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Carefully renovated and lovingly furnished 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, the spacious family-friendly property also includes plenty of room 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 configured with seven beds: two king-sized, one queen, two doubles, and two twins. 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 and a clawfoot tub) upstairs, a half bathroom downstairs, and air conditioning in five bedrooms 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. Other amenities include washer/dryer, Wi-Fi Internet access, 55-inch HDTV with cable, and a large collection of classic movies and vinyl records. There is parking for three cars on site, and we provide a beach pass for 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!

Truly Amazing! This is the first review we as a family have ever taken the time to write in 35 years of renting. We are still talking about this spectacular home and the week we had at the Cape. This home, not house, was one we were sad to leave. Thank you for a very special time…
