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.

Francis Murphy is from Irish stock and has the charm, fun and hospitality so well known in the Irish. She is very organized and attentive to her guests but not overly so. The beds are super and there is a wonderful shower which another review did not apparently find. Her breakfasts are far too much... I especially loved her French toast but she will fix whatever you want whenever you want it and laid out a full breakfast for another guest at 6 AM on our last day before returning to Europe. She is extremely knowledgable about the area and had many, many wonderful suggestions from eating to boat trips to banking and is very well known and liked in the area. Her swing on her back deck is a lovely break after a full day and the cats are no bother or problem at all. We would highly recommend this great place to anyone. It is value for money to be sure.

Mulberry Bed and Breakfast is Fran's home - it is not a "corporate B&B". You are a guest in Fran's historic home that reminded us of "visiting grandma". We called late to reserve a room and she gave us a great recommendation for dinner before we even checked-in. The room was quaint and the shared bath is part of the charm. It was a delight to eat a real breakfast and hear about Wareham.

My husband and I stayed at The Mulberry B & B the night of our wedding last May 26th 2013. After a long day of dancing and guests Fran had the most beautiful room set up for us and the warmth of her hospitality was awesome. We are going back to The Mulberry B & B to celebrate our 1st anniversary and look forward to the beauty, charm and peacefulness ...in fact, I just got off the phone and booked our weekend :)

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.

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.

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.

The Mulberry Bed and Breakfast is centrally located in the little village of Wareham, and Frances Murphy makes sure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. Staying there is like staying at a relative's classic New England cottage, and we certainly will be back next time we head to Wareham to visit family!
