Historic Property

Originally built in the 1820s, The Squire Tarbox Inn was carefully restored in 2018. What was once a coastal carriage house is now our one-of-a-kind event barn, providing a unique and welcoming setting that’s etched with history. The property’s lush greenery, heritage woods, and sparkling salt marsh act as a brilliant backdrop for any kind of event.
