House was brilliant. Perfect location. Ideal base for visiting Salem and Boston. Marblehead is a beautiful town. Lovely quiet street. Plenty of amenities. Grocery shop just along the road a bit. Maria is very kind and helpful. No complaints 🙂

Autumn in New England

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Whitaker house. The home is lovely and was stocked with everything we needed. Awesome location! Marblehead is a beautiful community --easily accessible to Boston. Salem is a fun visit in October, and is just 15. minutes away. We even took a day trip to Portsmouth. NH and Kennebunkport! Would highly recommend this home!

A great place, was the perfect place to stay while in the Marbelhead, Salem area.

  • 5 of 5

This home was amazing! We were greeted by great neighbors who assisted with direction and where to shop and suggestions for dinner. The home is located near the harbor and shopping. The house itself is most charming and cozy, the interior is decorated just right and everything was in perfect working order. This is the perfect place to stay if your considering staying in the Boston, Marblehead or Salem area.

Great home in Marblehead

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home and small backyard. We loved being able to eat in the patio with the gas grill. The home is attractively decorated, very clean, and comfortable for conversations in the living area. We had three adults and two small children and felt that it was a great size for our needs.
