Welcome to the "Best Kept Secret of Southeastern Massachusetts!" Why sit in Cape traffic when we have the sun, beaches, sailing, shopping, and tourism right here? Constructed in 1799, our home has many guest rooms: this listing is for the Blue Room. All reservations include a hot, homemade breakfast made from local ingredients and NO CLEANING FEES!
The blue room is large and bright, and it contains a queen bed. We have a pack-N-play, toddler bed, or cot available if needed. It has original hardwood floors and three windows. The bathroom is shared with the Pink Room. If you would like to book the Blue & Pink Rooms together, we offer a discount, but you must contact me so I can send you a "Special Offer." The parlor has a flat screen TV, an array of movies, and a Roku with Amazon Prime and Netflix channels.
Guests may use the porch, parlor, dining room, and kitchen. Kitchen use is limited to reasonable food preparation such as simple meals, children's snacks, reheating leftovers. Fridge space is at a premium, so only small items please. Please do not venture past the 3-board fence without Kate escorting you. The horses, goats and/or dogs may be out in the yard, and we do not want them escaping!
Kate lives on the property. She grew up here and knows the area very well. She is happy to assist you in any of your travel plans. We have a collection of literature for local attractions in our area.
Marion, MA rests on Buzzard's Bay's western, mainland shore. Marion has one of the best harbors in New England. The other side of the bay is Cape Cod. We boast the same weather, sun, sailing, beaches, tourism and shopping as the Cape, but you won't get stuck in traffic getting here! We are easily accessible by Route 6 and Interstate 195. Tabor Academy is less than a mile away; New Bedford is 13 miles; the Cape Cod Canal is 14 miles, Providence, RI is 40 miles; Boston is 58 miles.
Smoking is allowed only outside, at least 25 feet from any entrance to the house. If you need it, we can provide a small grill filled with sand for cigarette disposal. The house is one of the oldest houses in Marion, and voices do carry through the plaster and lathe walls; therefore, we ask that quiet hours begin around 10:30pm. Please treat our home as you would you own.
Kate grew up in nearby Mattapoisett, MA and moved back to the Southcoast in June 2015. She loves sailing, horseback riding, hiking, and traveling. The other residents of Silvershell Inn include, 2 dogs (Foster & Greta), 2 horses (Duncan & Tonto), and 2 goats (Bingley and Darcy).
