Marblehead Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom Suite In -Town Location - third floor flat

Walk everywhere from this Old Town Suite (no kitchen). Whether you're looking for an adventure week-end or a longer stay, the Crow's Nest is well located in the heart of Marblehead.

Continuous ownership since 1978, the home was built circa 1895. Originally it was a 2 unit building until the attic was converted to additional living space in the 1950's - enter The Crow's Nest. This suite remains my favorite spot in the building as it is known for it's cool summer breezes, privacy, tree-top views, and general quiet serenity.

The space is approximately 600 square feet of private quarters and can sleep 1-4 persons. (max. occupancy 4 persons.) The suite contains 2 bedrooms ( one with king bed, and one with two twins), a large living room with fireplace, an abundance of natural light, and one full bath. Note: There is no full kitchen.

**Note, there is an open staircase .

Amenities include: mini refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker, dining table for 4, ironing board, iron, flat screen t.v., wifi upon request, linens, 2 beach chairs, window a/c units during summer, winter off-street parking for one car December 2 2013, - April 15, 2014. ****Guest Parking is on the street all other times.

Our neighborhood is a first class example of a small, seacoast town. We are nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood. Incorporated in 1649, Marblehead has preserved what used to be the old fishing and merchant village. Residences are mostly antiques, single family houses, with apartments scattered about. The Gerry Grammar School is a stone's throw away and may be used as your own private playground after school and during week ends. Crosby's Market, fine dining, casual dining, the harbor and more are all within a short walk. The car can be parked for days without moving!

May all who enter as guests, leave as friends.

About Crow's Nest Owner - Shelley

Originally from Maryland, I am a permanent, year-round resident of Marblehead. Currently I wear a few hats around town. I am a real estate agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. I am a local business owner of Sweet Maddie's Bakery; and I am the mother of two amazing young women ages 16 and 18.

Growing up within 10 miles of downtown Annapolis and being close to the Chesapeake Bay, I fished and crabbed many early mornings with my father, windsurfed the Severn, South and Magothy Rivers (and everything in between), learned to love everything about living near the water.

I first visited Marblehead in 1980, arriving by sailboat. I fell in love with the town and I decided it felt like home. As soon as my college career wrapped up, I made a permanent move here.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The Crow's Nest is a beautiful, comfortable, convenient getaway spot. Shelley, the owner, provided a helpful overview of the home and area, along with some welcoming amenities I would only expect to find in a hotel. The apartment is very clean and beautifully decorated. It is located only a few blocks from the waterfront, restaurants, and shopping. I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would highly recommend this rental to anyone.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from two nights at the Crow's Nest. It was beautifully decorated, spacious and in a great location-we could walk to everything in downtown Marblehead including a beach. Shelly was very welcoming and very easy to communicate with prior to and during our stay. Our two kids loved the place too. It was great alternative to a cramped hotel room.

Cozy, comfortable, convenient location.

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful accomodations, very comfortable and cozy-we immediately felt at home when we settled in. King bed in main bedroom was a dream to sleep on. Everything in the home was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Perfect location, easy to walk to just about anywhere in quaint and charming Marblehead, and a quick 10-15 minutes in the car to Salem. Owner Shelley is extremely nice and easy to communicate with- we utilized e-mail prior to our visit, which worked like a charm. Would highly recommend "The Crow's Nest" to anyone looking for a delightful alternative to a boring hotel room, if you're heading to the Salem/Marblehead area. Would go back in a heartbeat...especially in Autumn...it was absolutely lovely.

An Opportunity to Enjoy Coastal New England

  • 5 of 5
We just completed another wonderful visit to Marblehead while again staying at Shelley’s Crow’s Nest. As former residents of Marblehead (29 years - Now living in The Villages, Florida), we find this suite ideally located and furnished to allow us to reacquaint ourselves with old and new friends. The location is in the midst of historic Marblehead and allows for great walking through the town, to the harbor, parks and beaches. Restaurants and supermarket are within a short walk as are bus stops from which you can get public transportation into Boston for a day of sightseeing.
The suite is extremely comfortable, roomy, private and homelike. It is a wonderful alternative to a hotel along a busy highway.
Thank you again Shelley. We look forward to our next opportunity to visit Marblehead and the Crow’s Nest.

Fantastic relaxing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely fabulous stay at Crow's Nest. The third floor getaway was exactly as described and pictured--tastefully decorated, comfortable, and spotless. Shelley was very responsive and thought of everything we could possibly need. Her recommendations for dining-- The Barnacle and The Landing-- were fantastic: dinner on the deck overlooking the harbor with outstanding seafood. Hiking around the Neck and the beaches were superb. The beds were super comfortable, and the house feels like a seaside oasis. It is just far enough from the commercial district of Marblehead to be serene and quiet, but so close that we could easily walk to everything within a few minutes--restaurants, shops, market. The Keurig and small fridge were just enough to give us flexibility on meals. Thank you, Shelley, for a wonderful vacation. We would definitely return!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
Shelley’s Crow’s Nest is wonderful.
Up on our arrival (the owner made sure that we find the house, the entrance, keys etc.) homemade cupcakes were waiting for our kids and us. She complimentary left us with food and drinks we might need!
The apartment is so charming! Everything was very clean and there is plenty of space for a family of four.
It’s perfectly situated in the old town of Marblehead. Everything is walking distance.
A wonderful place to enjoy your vacation.

Thank you Shelley, you and your hospitality made our trip very memorable!

42° 30' 0' N / 70° 51' 29' W is the birthplace of the American Navy. Marblehead is a gorgeous seaside community nestled between Boston and Cape Anne. Diverse landscape of rocky shores, small sandy beaches, and a lovely harbor. Marblehead not only delights sailors but artists, vacationers, and week-end visitors. Marblehead is only 4.4 square miles so one can literally walk everywhere. Walking/touring/biking is mostly kept to the the main village 'Old Town' to 'The Neck'. Out lovely seaside town makes a perfect destination for weddings, family gatherings, and of course...anyone looking for rest, relaxation, and the smell of the ocean.

* Bus-subway service to Boston from Marblehead and Swampscott.

* Train service to Boston from Salem.

In Salem, the high points of tourism reside close to the waterfront. The Salem Ferry to Boston takes a bout 50 minutes and is a relaxing way to beat traffic, and have a snack or glass of wine on the way home. Salem is also home of the Peabody Essex Museum, the Witch Museum, and many fine dining establishments.
