Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: I inherited the house when my mother passed away in 2005. I own bicycle shops, my wife is a Professor at the University of Oregon. We love hiking, biking, and boating, and outdoor recreation in general. My wife and I live in Eugene, Oregon, so the Cottage is a vacation home for us. Much of my family still lives in the Marion area.

Why the Owner Chose Marion Center, Marion, MA, USA:
As the eldest, I had first choice of Marion family properties. I chose this one because it is such pleasant comfortable house, and right in the center of the village.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great location in the center of one of New England's charming historic villages. Within 100 yards of our cottage, you will find both Village Restaurants, Tabor Academy, the town pier and beach, the post office, the library, the art center. the general store, and dozens of historic 17th and 18th century houses and churches.
