What is it about Marshfield that makes this Massachusetts town such a summer wonderland? Here on the breezy coast of the Atlantic, where Cape Cod Bay meets Massachusetts Bay, the ocean beaches are plentiful, the history is rich, and our Marshfield vacation rentals are ready and waiting to give you the New England summer you've been dreaming of.
With more than 350 years of history and a name taken from the surrounding salt marshes, the coastal town of Marshfield is located in Plymouth County on Massachusetts' South Shore. You'll be just 30 miles southeast of the hustle and bustle of Boston, 47 miles northeast of Providence, and 28 miles north of the Sagamore Bridge in Bourne - one of the two gateways to the charming beach towns of Cape Cod.
The town's population swells from 25,000 residents to 40,000 each summer, as blissful daytime temperatures (July average is 71 degrees) lure swimmers and beach-goers to our Marshfield vacation homes.
Do as the locals do and spend sunny days on one of Marshfield's ocean beaches, which are made all the more accessible with a rental home in the neighborhood. Walk down to the crystal blue water at Humarock Beach, bring your dog along for the fun at Rexhame Beach, soak in the sun on Brant Rock Beach, or head south for a day at Green Harbor Beach and Duxbury Beach Park.
Time your visit in August to attend the annual Marshfield Fair, or take a walk back in time at the Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary and the Daniel Webster Estate and Heritage Center - two local landmarks that pay tribute to the 19th-century statesman who called Marshfield home. To catch a glimpse of another local celebrity, stop by the legendary Marshfield Hills General Store, which was purchased in recent years by actor and comedian Steve Carell.
