The Marshall House

The Marshall House is a historic three-story Arts and Crafts style home originally constructed in 1913. The home was designed by architect Simon Larke and served as the residence of James G. Marshall, a prominent industrialist and inventor. It  has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2004.

The Marshall family lived in the home until the mid-1970s. The structure has functioned as a bed and breakfast since 1994.

The Marshall House is an excellent example of Arts and Crafts, or Craftsman, style architecture. This architectural style was a reaction of the excesses of Victorian architecture, and was meant to create a simple, but elegant, atmosphere through the use of natural materials and open floor plans.

Your Hosts

Owners Matt and Cherrish Beals purchased The Marshall House in 2022. Cherrish had dreamt of owning a Bed and Breakfast since 1996 when she first started working for Ritz Carlton and fell in love with the hospitality industry. 
By coincidence, MaryJean Buddenhagen first met Matt and Cherrish while staying at a Bed and Breakfast in 2008. They've been friends ever since and when the need to hire a chef and on-site host arose Matt and Cherrish knew MaryJean was the perfect person for the job!
