“This is my ancestral home. The Cabots have always lived here, since long before the Great War. If you're asking what we're still doing here, with Boston in its current sad state, well... that's a story for another time, perhaps.”— Jack Cabot
Possibly one of the cleanest locations in the entire Commonwealth—barring the Institute—the Cabot House's fresh, clean look resonates with its occupants. Inside there are four floors. In the basement is the kitchen along with Edward Deegan's bedroom. On the ground floor is a large living-room with the dining room in the back. On the second floor is Cabot's laboratory, from the laboratory one can continue to the third floor which consist of various bedrooms.

All the loot in the house respawns relatively quickly. This includes the Fat Man and the mini nuke in the basement, the Zeta gun upstairs and both the crates located in the basement and on the third floor.
Depending on the actions taken in The Secret of Cabot House ownership of the house may fall under the ownership of Lorenzo - with most of the family killed. The only one who can be spared is Edward Deegan, though this is optional.
Given the Cabot House quest line's similarity to the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the name may be derived from a story written by Lovecraft and his contemporary Hazel Heald known as Out of the Aeons, which is about events surrounding a mummy in the fictional Cabot Museum of Archaeology in Boston. Like Cabot House, the museum is located in the Beacon Hill neighborhood, used to be a "former private mansion with an added wing in the rear," and is located in roughly the same area.
現實的凱伯家族在18世紀來到麻州的貝弗利，並成為波士頓世家開端的家族之一。許多政商名人都來自他們家族，例如約翰·摩爾斯·凱伯大使。一首關於波士頓的打油诗這樣說道：这可是亲爱的老波士顿，鳕鱼豆子满地滚。罗威尔家只跟凱伯家扯，而凱伯家只傾訴於神。 (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./)
