My boyfriend and I had a really good time at Fran´s place. Fran made delicious breakfast every morning and we spent a lot of time chatting and laughing together. We can really recommend staying at Mulberry´s.

tranquil and peaceful

I very much enjoyed this charming B&B and the pleasant company during my fortnight stay. Fran, thank you for being so flexible with my early mornings and still making breakfast available. Your home and hospitality provided me with the peace and tranquility I needed. The world is full of beautiful people and Fran is one of them. I shall not be a stranger.

Quaint and charming old house. Friendly service..

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.

like being back in the 50s

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.

A tad late with our review.....

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 fact, I just got off the phone and booked our weekend :)

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.
