The building is in excellent condition, despite its age and having survived the Great War. The entrance is key-locked, but may be opened by persuading Edward Deegan in dialogue through the intercom, or without the need for persuasion if the related quest Special Delivery has already been started.
In the basement is the kitchen and Deegan's bedroom, which contains a Master-locked floor safe and a steamer trunk. On the first floor is a large living room, with the dining room in the back. On the second floor is Jack Cabot's laboratory, with an Expert-locked terminal containing a wealth of information on the family's history. The third floor is initially inaccessible behind key-locked doors until starting the quest The Secret of Cabot House, but consists of corridors lined with uninteractable display cases, a storage closet with a second steamer trunk, and three bedrooms, with Emogene Cabot's bedroom and Master-locked terminal in the northeast corner.
- Cabot's lab coat - Worn by Jack Cabot.
- Emogene Cabot's password - Held by Emogene Cabot. Gives access to her Master-locked terminal on the third floor.
- Fat Man - In the basement, in the corner in Edward Deegan's bedroom.
- Mini nuke - In the basement, on the dresser in Edward Deegan's bedroom.
- Zeta gun - On the second floor, on the table in Jack Cabot's lab.
- Undamaged American flag - On the third floor, on a bookshelf in the corridor.
- Massachusetts Surgical Journal issue #5 - On the third floor, in one of the bedrooms.
- Lorenzo Cabot's journal - On the third floor, on a desk next to the surgical journal.
- All the loot in the house respawns when the cell is loaded. This includes the Fat Man and the mini nuke in the basement, the Zeta gun on the second floor, and the two steamer trunks in the basement and on the third floor.
- Depending on the actions taken in The Secret of Cabot House, the house may fall under the ownership of Lorenzo, with most of the inhabitants killed. The only original resident who can be spared in this case is Edward Deegan.
- When at this location, companions make comments, which are activated at three locations: the exterior by the shrubbery, the living room, and the laboratory.
|Curie||Exterior||"Oh, look at the architecture. So lovely."|
|Living room||"Interesting. A structure in this condition might contain pristine pre-war artifacts. We should search it carefully."|
|Laboratory||"I think this is not the good type of science."|
|Deacon||Exterior||"Anything that looks that pristine's got to be bad news."|
|Living room||"Whoever their maid service is I want their number."|
|Laboratory||"Great. Another crazy scientist. Did someone order them in bulk?"|
|Robert MacCready||Exterior||"I've got a very bad feeling about this place."|
|Laboratory||"What the heck's with all this science junk? Something isn't right here."|
Cabot House appears only in Fallout 4.
Behind the scenes
- The Cabot family is based on the real-world Cabots, one of the "first families of Boston." The first Cabot arrived in Boston from Europe in the year 1700, and many business leaders and politicians since that time have hailed from the family. A famous Boston toast jokes: "And this is good old Boston, the home of the bean and the cod. Where the Lowells talk only to Cabots, and the Cabots talk only to God."
- The artifacts in the display cases on the third floor are real-world objects from the ancient world, including an Elamite roundel, a Hittite wall inscription, and an Indus Valley cow votive.
- Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p. 462: "This 1711 mansion is sealed up tighter than a T-60 Power Armor vacuum attachment: It is strangely preserved amid the general decay. Located on Louisburg Square, the park is still well maintained. The intercom at the front door allows you to ask to gain entry."
