The Anawan Club Clubhouse and Caretaker's House are a pair of historic buildings at 13 Gorham Street in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, on the grounds of the Anawan Club, a private recreational club.

The clubhouse is a log building built in 1898 on the shore of Warren Upper Reservoir as a hunting and fishing lodge. It was built from locally-cut cedar trees, and consists of a single large chamber flanked by fieldstone chimneys, with a small service ell.[2] The caretaker's house is a much older 1-1/2 story Cape style house, probably built between 1750 and 1780 by a member of the Kelton family. It is a well-preserve local example of this vernacular form.[3]

The property was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
