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 space

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, I offer a discount, but you must contact me so I can send you a "Special Offer."

Guest access

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!

Interaction with guests

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.

Other things to note

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.

I grew up in the area and was extremely happy with our stay at the Silvershell Inn over Thanksgiving. Kate and her husband were exceptionally gracious hosts and my wife and I have been raving to our family about our stay. Definitely our go-to venue for when we are in town from now on!

Kate was a very gracious host. Everything I needed was there and I would certainly recommend others stay there as well while visiting Marion.

House was clean, warm, and welcoming. We loved the French toast and bacon breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

What a lovely inn. I can't wait to go back with my husband so he can see this amazing historic home. Room was spacious and comfortable (awesome mattress) and sharing a bathroom was fine. Good location right off the highway --the beach is on the same road less than five miles away. Kate is warm and welcoming and seems happy to do whatever it takes to make a guest's stay an enjoyable one. An all-around good value and great find!

Kate was a fantastic host. Her home is so beautiful, tastefully furnished, clean, and very welcoming, as was she! All was as described. I would love to visit again, and highly recommend her beautiful home to other travellers. Many thanks!
