Marion and Mattapoisett are small, picturesque waterfront communities that we like to consider the South Coast’s best kept secrets. These coastal towns have something to offer all ages: sailing, tennis, golf, art, beautiful beaches, gift shops, and restaurants. Visitors come from near and far to experience such events as the Buzzards Bay Music Festival, the Marion Antique Show, Mattapoisett’s Harbor Days. Marion and Mattapoisett are conveniently located just one hour from Boston (also close to the MBTA commuter rail into the city), 40 minutes from Providence, and 40 minutes from Hyannis. Also, the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard is just 15 minutes away in New Bedford. We have all of the attractions of Cape Cod, but without the tourists and traffic!
