About the property

On the water in Scituate Harbor


Sail or drive to my seaside home, my little piece of heaven on a peninsula by Scituate Harbor. Located across from the yacht club and shopping district. Relax on the beach, stroll to the stores, award winning restaurants, galleries, movie theatre and churches. Cruise on Scituate Harbor, whale watch anyone? Use my kayak, bike? Located 20 miles south of the best city in the world - Boston - and 20 miles north of Plymouth Rock, a historical gem - is a room with a view furnished with a queen size bed, fridge, micro, toaster oven, coffee pot and hi speed internet. Enjoy the views of my awesome community from the deck! Also close by is Wamputuck State Park, 1 of a handful of wonderful walking, hiking trails. The foliage in autumn is astounding! This is a 3 story home. Guest resides on first floor. My puppy and I live very quietly on the upper floors.

Longer stays are welcome.

About Marj

I am one of a handful of lucky folks that get to eek out a living as an artist. My main focus is glass melting although I draw, dabble in paint and am a metalsmith, and fiber artist as well. My main website is glassthingsdotcom. I live a small simple life here with my puppy Simon. We take long walks every day and have a lot of laughs.

Marj purchased this house in 1995

Why Marj chose South of Boston

I have lived in town for 44 years. If you are looking for something I am pretty sure I can find it for you or direct you to it.

I had so much fun last summer sharing my home I thought we'd try this website too. I am a pretty busy lady and will be around as much or as little as you wish. You will be the boss of this!

What makes this house unique

We are pretty low key here. It is truly important to me my guests have a wonderful, and relaxing visit with us. Plus where else will you find the owner supplies fresh brewed coffee for you each morning and a little nosh!

Soulful Place to Relax...

  • 4 of 5

We richly enjoyed our stay at "Marj Bates Studio." Marj was a gracious host and provided a very nice balance between hospitality and privacy. Staying in a cottage so close to the Atlantic Ocean surf, allowed us to be lulled to sleep each night of our stay by the splashing of the waves. :) We are so grateful she opened her home for guests through "VRBO". We took early morning walks to the lighthouse, watched the sunrise and enjoyed local restaurants. We hope to return soon. We couldn't imagine a better value for an "AirB&B" style rental.

Owner's Response: Lisa & Mike, Like I may have told you - every time I think I have just hosted the best guests in the world another couple comes along! You left the space you occupied just as you found it and the treat you left Simon was much appreciated! I love sharing my magical piece of heaven to folks that really appreciate the area. So glad you could take time to enjoy the sights and sounds. Simon keeps going back to your room looking for you! Hope to see you again! Marj

Comfy and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Our brief visit to Scituate (for a wedding nearby) was much more than we imagined. Instead of just reserving convenient lodging, we found ourselves immersed in this fun, comfy home. Marj and lovable Simon are such welcoming hosts. Their location is scenic, quaint, and relaxing.

Best Kept Secret in Town

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for my 30th reunion. Growing up in Scituate, I wanted to stay on the water or as close as I could get at an affordable price. The Owner Marj was such a fantastic person- very personable, friendly and accommodating. The Ocean view and constant breeze was comforting and there is nothing like the salt air. The house is Scituated (no pun intended) in a perfect spot for great walks with fantastic views literally steps from the lighthouse.

We really did not need to bring a thing. Everything you would need to enjoy a beach vacation was available; coolers kayaks and towels. Her home was clean and inviting.

I highly recommend this for a couple. We would love to return

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure to host Rich and Patty this weekend for Rich's special class reunion. It is always so fun to see Scituate through the lens of my guests! Patty and Rich are friendly, clean, quiet and appreciative guests that are a pleasure to have around. I certainly will welcome them back again!
