Built in 1847 by blacksmith Aaron Sampson for his private residence, this bed and breakfast home was purchased in 1924 for use as a general store by the paternal grandfather of Mulberry's foundress. One hundred and fifty years later this cozy Cape Cod style home welcomes travelers to Wareham. Family heirlooms and antiques provide a comfortable atmosphere for guests. Specializing in personal service, Fran, the owner, will gladly direct guests to areas of interest along Wareham's fifty-four miles of seashore or to historic Plymouth, Boston, New Bedford, Newport, or scenic Cape Cod. She awaits your inquiry and visit. Gift certificates are also available.

A long time ago!

My son enjoyed the hospitality Fran provides when he roomed with her during his time playing in the Cape League in 1994 - my other son and I stayed here for a week when we visited Karl. My wife and I visited and roomed with Fran a few years ago after a cruise out of Boston. Fran is a treat and a wonderful host. We have stayed at numerous B & B's domestically and in foreign lands. The Mulberry is one of our top two choices. You won't go wrong staying at the Mulberry.

I stayed while working as a RN at local hospital and it was my home away from home. Thank Mulberry Fran! XO

Fran Murphy was a delight as a hostess and her home was full of charm.

Ms. Murphy delivers an authentic NE B&B experience!

4.4 on July 15, 2011

Some B&Bs are run like hotels, where you're just a number - and some make you feel as if you are a welcome guest in someone's home... Mulberry B&B definitely fits the latter category! Fran, the owner/proprietress, is as warm and accommodating a hostess as you'll find anywhere. She always does her best to make my stay as inviting and trouble-free as possible, and her cats are absolutely charming (if you like cats, of course). Her conversations are engaging, but she also respects your space if you need it (or have business to attend to). I've already stayed here another time since my first visit, and I'm booking my third stay tonight.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

This is a very nice, quiet place to stay. Fran, the owner, is an absolute gem. She is very accomodating. Her french toast is delicious! The house is lovely and the rooms are quite comfortable. The hot tub is fantastic and quite private. There are a couple of things that guests should know. There are two cats in the house. They are quite friendly and Fran keeps them out of guest's rooms but they are in the house. I wouldn't stay here if you are highly allergic. Also, there are two shared baths. The bathroom upstairs has an old claw foot tub (no shower.) The downstairs bathroom has a shower. Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay.
