About the property

On the water in Scituate Harbor


JULY 23- 27, 2017 is AVAILABLE for guests. For some reason Calendar shows it is blocked.

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!

Owner's Response: Aneese and Melinda thank you so much for visiting. As I knew you would you left my home immaculate and you were so quiet! Much appreciated! I love to watch guests enjoy the things I hope I never take for granted, especially the beaches and of course Simon! Like I said whether I am here or not feel free to park in my driveway and enjoy the beach. ~til again... Marj

Not what we expected!!

  • 2 of 5

Marj was very nice. The space was much smaller than we expected and it was just a bedroom and a bathroom no sitting area or table to eat at. It is across the street from the ocean not on the ocean and a 10 min walk to the lighthouse. Quite noisy there as well.

Owner's Response: Why would you make up such things Theresa? Did you not see the sign on the desk stating please enjoy the common areas in my studio including use of tables as some enjoy a meal at one of the tables in my studio. A meal prepared in your room because the room is so well equipped to do so. Also stated on this notice in a frame on the desk is to 'feel free to enjoy 'anything' that is not behind the screen in studio which is a private space.' I don't get it. My studio is immaculate and others enjoy the space so much. If for some reason you did not see this notice why did you not mention this to me. You may recall I asked you several times - at least once a day if there was anything you needed. You aways replied everything is fine! I am sad for you that you did not have a nice time here. Certainly all these issues you speak of that really were not issues could have been easily resolved. I don't get it...

Wonderful place to stay - fresh ocean air and lovely host

  • 5 of 5

The room was lovely and very workable for dining in or dining out. I loved being able to sit on the front porch and watch and morning arrive. Our host, Marj, was helpful and responsive both before and during out stay. Very very nice. Thank you

25th Anniversary Amazingness

  • 5 of 5

No better place on the planet to spend your 25th Anniversary. We tried to pick somewhere special and Marj delivered. Great area, good exercise. Safe. The harbor blue rivaled the Caribbean. It was truly amazing. Good guidance from Marj. Simon (her dog) was nice as can be and I wasn't even allergic!
