So much history
Sep 2019
Our tour group was so surprised to see a house that has survived for so long. Cape Cod salt box style of home must be well made to have survived so many storms and winters

An authentic 1600's house!
Sep 2019
The tour was great and very detailed, The best part was that everything there was genuine 1600's era construction and material, no reproductions. It is amazing that this house has survived for 370 years! The area around the house also has a grist mill to visit, a glass factory museum and the heritage gardens nearby, so much history in one place and not much driving to do, its a great place to fill up your day. Also our tour guide Chip was awesome and he took a photo for our family.

My wife and I toured the house and the history is incredible. Both the tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The house is very authentic to the period.

The hosts make the tour of this colonial home remarkable.
Sep 2019
Four of us came by really just to see the old saltbox house from the outside, but we decided to take the house tour. Our guides, Chip and Nancy, made the tour and talk of the history absolutely fantastic. I like seeing touristy stuff from time to time but sometimes its just kind of bland - but this tour was so much different. Everything Chip and Nancy had to say was so interesting. All in our party agreed that it was well worth our time. We loved it.

Great tour!

My wife and I were looking for something to do on a rainy afternoon. We went for the $5 tour wondering if if it was just another old house.

Well, it WAS just another old house but the guides made it an awesome tour. They were sooo knowledgeable and great story tellers. It is a must if you visit the area!

Very Short Tour - $5.00 admission fee
Aug 2019
The tour at Hoxie House is probably between half hour and 45 minutes. The great thing about it was that they don't make you wait for the next tour to start, you can join right away. You can then stay for the next tour until you've heard all the information. Its a little museum/house but it was really interesting. A highlight of our time in Sandwich.

Love the quaint History and buildings
Sep 2019
The tour guides are quite knowledgable and the arifacts and History are incredible. From the King in England taxing everything iron/metal on a yearly basis to the hand made wooden items in the kitchen to the bread baking oven. Only $4.00 per person to obtain a lot of knowledge. The pond with the geese and lawn and sitting area are breathtaking and relaxing.

Take a step back in time and appreciate the lives early settlers. The place is amazingly well kept and the staff are very knowledgeable and informative. The staff clearly like their work here. Thanks Chip and Trevor.

One of Oldest Houses in Sandwich
Sep 2018
Imposing Saltbox style house is worth the trip! May be one of the oldest houses in Massachusetts! Docents are very knowledgeable. I was able to walk here and other places from my B&B.

Best 5 bucks I may have spent on this trip.

My wife, her brother, his wife and a nephew popped in to what turned out to be a humorous and historical educational experience. Shirley and Ilene were a delight as they told us the extensive story of the Hoxie House, likely built in 1637. The build of the home, the iron and wooden devices were fascinating. Do yourself a favor and stop by.
