Located on Buzzards Bay, this house hosts the best view in town. A swimming beach is a stone's throw from the front of the house. A wrap around porch with many rocking chairs is a great place to relax and watch the boats go by. The house is located on a quiet corner and is an easy stroll to Marion village with a general store, post office, book store and antique store. Restaurants and lots of interesting places to visit are only a short drive away. Sorry but the ARK is not available for weddings or large events.
The house, called the ARK, built in 1894, has retained all the beautiful features of homes from that era - high ceilings, beautiful window and door moldings, and wood floors. The kitchen has all the modern amenities including two dishwashers, two refrigerators, two ovens, and a microwave.
The ARK is a wonderful gem that is enjoyed by all who visit.
My husband and I had found this vacation property many years ago but the dates never worked out for our extended family. This past year I spoke with Amy and we secured out dates. Had one of the most amazing vacations together. Our own waterfront, nice, clean bedroom and perfect dining area and kitchen. The porch was our main event. Little ones played at the water's edge while parents and aunts and uncles read or floated by watching them. I (the grandmother/mom) sat and read on the porch and took it all in, wonderful! The beds ere clean and bathrooms worked out fine. We hope to rent again Amy and her staff very understanding and forthcoming with any info we needed.
We stayed at the Ark for a few days in late April 2014 to celebrate our son's graduation from Tabor. Family and friends from Maine were able to stay together and cook, play, and attend all the Tabor events. Grandparents living in Marion were able to visit with all the family without having to travel. It was a perfect choice. The character of the house was totally "us", and it was the best graduation present to give our son ~ a priceless memory was created. We can't wait to come back.
I have now stayed here three times, always rented with various friends for weekend getaways. It is spacious, homey, and the perfect balance between rustic and fancy. It's clean, there's plenty of bedding and towels available, and in a great location with a huge yard and a private beach. The owner is very nice, and the management company helpful and located close to the property. We absolutely plan on renting this house again in the future!
Our family had the most amazing and special time here. Great memories were created here and I am so glad we made the right choice to come here. The house was perfect for our large family get together. We are all self proclaimed master chefs and the kitchen was more than accommodating for all of us. This is a truly magical place. We are very thankful to Amy for helping us before and after our trip (she made it seamless). The views from the porch in the back are hands down the highlight for everyone. Five stars all the way!
