Marblehead House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Baths - Spectacular Views From Every Room In The House!
'The best view on the entire east coast...'. Come to Marblehead for a week, long weekend, or even an entire month during the winter. Sorry, the summer of 2014 is booked solid and fall is filling up fast (our calendar below is not always up to date). See the rate schedule below for various events and seasonal offerings.
About our House: Situated on a rocky bluff, overlooking a quiet cove and sandy beach with the open ocean just beyond. Our contemporary house is located on 'Peach's Point' - a private dead end road at the very tip of the Marblehead peninsula. Watch everything from kayaks to ocean liners drift past this spectacular view. Rocky cliffs, islands, beaches, light houses, lobster boats, sea gulls, seals, and occasional swans- it looks more like the coast of Down East Maine, but it's all right here, less than 20 miles from downtown Boston. Easy access to the city by car or nearby bus.
Our three bedroom, three and a half bath house has three levels. Two of the bedrooms are on the lower level- one with a king bed, the other with two twins, each with its own private bath and balconies overlooking the ocean. Also on this level is a laundry/storage room. The lower level 'back door' opens to our six person hot tub and the driveway beyond. An electric glide stair lift assists the elderly from this level up to the middle level.
The middle level of the house has the main entry, a large living room with fireplace, kitchen/dining area, and a half bath. However, the huge deck overlooking the water is the main attraction here. Enjoy lunch while watching the boats and windsurfers in Doliber's Cove below. A pergola provides shade on hot summer days. The gardens are also accessible from this level.
Our third bedroom is on the top floor. It's a private guest suite with a separate entrance, small kitchenette, living area with 60' flat screen TV, full bath [shower], and a spiral stair that leads up to a sleeping loft. There's a king size bed and two twins up here at the very top of the house. A fold out sofa below allows a family of five to sleep comfortably- it's more like a private apartment than a third bedroom. It doubles as a family room with seating around the large TV. Central air on this floor only- ocean breezes cool the rest of the house. Also on the top floor is a small open office and library, which overlooks the cathedral ceiling of the living room below.
Fantastic views from every room and the architect/owner has renovated each one of them. It's a spotless house with nautical decor throughout and, of course, WiFi, along with cable TV in most rooms. Fully stocked for your visit with all kitchenware, utensils, and even spices for cooking. All linens and towels included.
About our Town: Marblehead [Birth place of the American Navy] is a sailing / fishing / artist community on a peninsula, just twenty miles north of downtown Boston. Walk the Freedom Trail in the morning and come back for a swim in the afternoon. It's an easy drive into the city or you can leave the car at home and catch the bus down the street. Beautiful seascapes all over town, but none finer than the view from our house at the very tip of the Marblehead peninsula. Our contemporary house is located on Peach's Point- an exclusive neighborhood of mansions and manicured lawns, all on a private dead end road overlooking the North Atlantic. Walk the narrow winding streets to historic Old Town with its quaint restaurants, shops, and museums. The original painting, 'Spirit of '76', hangs in our town hall. Picnic or enjoy a festival in one of our scenic parks overlooking the harbor. Bicycle to nearby Salem, Massachusetts with its Witch History, House of Seven Gables, and world class Peabody Essex Museum. The dunes of Ipswich, Rockport, and other areas of Cape Anne are a bit farther away. Gloucester- setting for 'The Perfect Storm'- is visible across Salem Harbor. The ski slopes of New Hampshire are two hours north, Cape Cod two hours south, and New York City is a four hour drive away.
If you are in the area- or know some one local- you are welcome to stop by and check out our beautiful house on the ocean.

Don & Barbara are nearing retirement and enjoy traveling- either around New England or around the world. Call and we can discuss a long term winter rental while we are out of the country.
Our house is one of twenty in a private access neighborhood. This is our primary residence and we rent it out to responsible people during long weekends- or for months at a time- while we are traveling. You will not find the wear and tear in our house that you see in some rental properties. What you will find is an architect/owner designed house that is fully furnished with wifi and cable TV- and a kitchen with all cookware, utensils, spices, and extras- ready for your visit.
Although we are part of a private, semi-secluded community, it's pleasant stroll from our house to the historic Old Town of Marblehead. This property combines the peace and tranquility of the ocean with the excitement and history of nearby Boston. Sorry, but we do not allow weddings on our property. Please enjoy and respect this wonderful setting.
