Great Family Vacation!
Submitted: August 2, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
Our family (2 adults, 2 girls (ages 4 & 8), 1 golden retriever and 1 ragdoll cat) stayed at this beautiful home for the month of July. The location was perfect for many day trips to Boston, Rockport, Newburyport, Portsmouth, and other wonderful cities. We took the train from Salem to Boston several times and enjoyed the Children's Musueum, Aquarium, Museum of Science and of course the Freedon Trail, great restaurants, and great shopping!
Marblehead is a great town for kids (and dogs!) and we enjoyed Devereaux Beach, Grace Oliver Beach and the dog beach many, many times. The rocky beach at the end of Stramski Way is great for watching the sunset and collecting sea glass. The playground there was fantastic for the kids and just around the corner.
The house had plenty of room for all of us and the fenced in back yard was great for the kids and the dog. We had many cookouts on the grill and dinners on the back patio. We also enjoyed eating at many of Marbleheads great restaurants including The Landing and The Barnacle. For casual meals, Vesuvius had the best pizza and Mino's is the place to go for great roast beef sandwiches.
The house had everything we needed and was perfect for our family. It is very well maintained and the pictures and description on line are very accurate. Maria was wonderful to rent from and very helpful. We will definitely come back to Marblehead and this great home!
