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.

Spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5
What a great location! Perfect for enjoying Marblehead with restaurants and shopping within a 15 minute walk. Salem is a quick 15 minute/$10 cab ride away. My husband and I had more than enough room and with the double beds in the other room, a family of 4 would be comfortable. Shelley was very accommodating, which really helped make the last leg of our journey go smoothly. We would definitely recommend this rental.

My husband and I had a great trip. Marblehead is a beautiful town with delicious seafood restaurants (Barnacle's Lobster Bisque Yum) and window shopping. Being a 15 min, $10 cab ride to Salem made sightseeing easy. Really nice space and Shelly was really accommodating.

Perfect In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at the Crow's Nest! We consider Shelley a great friend and plan to return soon. The upstairs loft was beautifully decorated very clean and comfortable to stay in for the week. The location was perfect and could walk easily to town or short 10min drive to Salem. Shelley made us feel comfortable and always made herself available for directions or good travel advice! It is a must stay when in Marblehead!

Wonderful Home away from Home in Marblehead

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Crow's Nest for two short nights (wish it could've been longer). The 3rd floor suite was charmingly decorated and immaculate. We found the beds and linens luxurious. Not having a kitchen wasn't a hardship with the close proximity to numerous dining options. Shelley kindly provided information about the area before our arrival which was helpful. We hope to return to Marblehead and the Crow's Nest again!

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.

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.
