About Brett McCarty

Your hosts are a family of four and two pups. We moved 'back east' from a tiny ski village in the Sierra Nevada mountains. After living at 7,100 feet for three years, we thought we'd enjoy being at sea level in a seaside town. What a good decision! We live in the most amazing 'castle,' that was built around 1900 as a carriage house serving the nearby Clifton Train Depot. Although the horses, carriages, and train are long gone, you will be charmed by the beauty and adventure of this old turreted building. Just as we do. We are delighted to welcome people to Marblehead and enjoy our beautiful gardens, yard and seaside community.

Brett McCarty purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Brett McCarty chose Marblehead

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea! Loads of conservation land. Beaches. Great green parks. History. Arts and culture. Family community. Good schools.

What makes this apartment unique

Situated less than ½ mile from Preston Beach, 1 ½ miles from Devereux Beach, 2 miles from historic old town Marblehead, and 15 miles from Logan Airport and Boston—convenient for both vacation and business travelers. Marblehead has historic homes, art galleries, old winding roads, a lighthouse and so much more. Nearby Salem is ripe with witches, pirates, House of the Seven Gables, and the incredible Peabody Essex Museum.

Wonderful Property and Host - We Can't Wait To Return!

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I are scattered throughout Long Island and Manhattan and don't see each other as often as we'd like, so we thought it would be a great idea to get together for a Halloween weekend in Salem, MA. We inquired about our intended dates of stay with Coachman's Quarter's owner, Brett, who was able to accommodate us and was incredibly sweet and helpful throughout every step of the way. Half of our party arrived at about 9am (much earlier than check-in), but Brett gladly obliged our early arrival at no additional charge. We arrived to find flat and sparkling water and fruit for our personal use, as well as tons of guides to help us make the most of our stay. The property is located about 10 minutes outside of Salem, and provides ease of access to all of the wonderful Marblehead and Salem attractions. It actually rained and snowed during the majority of our stay (Halloween weekend, go figure!), but we were able to entertain ourselves indoors thanks to the array of board games, books and cable TV in the apartment's living room. Brett returned our deposit almost immediately after our departure, and even wrote us a thoughtful, handwritten note thanking us for taking care of her property. The home is magnificent, and the Coachman apartment is beautiful; spacious yet cozy at the same time. We felt at home right away and were truly sad to leave. Thank you, Brett, for such a memorable experience; we look forward to returning next October!!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

My brother and his family stayed in the Coachman's Quarters for nearly two weeks and found the accommodations to be outstanding. Five people fit easily in the very clean and comfortable space. The location just a short walk from the beach provides guests with access to Marblehead's famous ocean shore. Overall a great experience, I would definitely recommend Coachman's Quarters!

Wonderful, unique property.

  • 5 of 5

The Coachman's Quarters was the perfect accommodation for our family of four. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are large. Everything was clean and modern. The amenities were so well stocked there was very little we needed to buy for our two night stay. Brett is so welcoming - you couldn't ask for a better host. We definitely recommend the Coachman's Quarters.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples renting the Coachman’s Quarters and we had a very great time in the house and in Marblehead. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and the space – large rooms, two bathrooms – was perfect for four adults. The communication with the owner was easy. Thank you Brett!

Terrific Rental

  • 5 of 5

This "Seaside Castle" is terrific. It is an immaculate and very comfortable apartment in a fine location and super responsive owner. It is great for families as there are places to play outside, a fun swing and it is walking/biking distance to the beach, the JCC and the YMCA.

Fantastic Halloween Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I brought my mother to New England to enjoy the fall colors and participate in Halloween festivities in Salem. The Coachmans Quarters was an excellent place to stay in and by itself. It also gave us distance from the Halloween happenings in and around Salem, yet was only 15 minutes away by car. The owner is fantastic and provides that personal touch that brings the whole experience together. The place is warm and cozy and everything is provided for you the minute you step into the door.
