Spacious home, great views, great location

  • 5 of 5

Great home for a family reunion/vacation. Lots of room for kids to play (3 floors); large rooms for adults to visit. Secluded drive through woods to get to house even though you are in a town. Two kitchens and near to restaurants. Sitting with a cup of coffee on the deck in the morning and watching fishermen is a great way to start the day. If we return to Boston, we will definitely stay here.

Secret Gem on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely much more than I ever expected-- A glorious setting with unobstructed views of the ocean as far as the eye can see. We greeted the day every morning with a spectacular sunrise--words can't describe how beautiful it was. But the main surprise was the unexpected sight of the whales that were swimming in Nahant Bay. I assumed we would have to book a whale watcher tour so this was a delightful extra that we could observe the whales from the decks.

The home was well appointed and all we needed to bring was a toothbrush and groceries. The rooms were large and the great room allowed our large group to dine together. The gathering was even more special because there was ample room for everyone and yet have their own space. We saved dollars because we could cook some of our meals, yet found great restaurants nearby when we decided to eat out.

The close proximity to Boston as well as other historical sites made this a perfect location. Our families will be back and will never forget the wonderful memories we take with us from the wonderful vacation we had in this special community of Nahant.

God's country!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly what you need to have a fantastic getaway vacation. So relaxing to sit and watch the lobster fishermen check their traps early in the morning & in the evening watch the sun set from every window, in this wonderfully laid out house. It has 3 levels & very private with all the amenities. It is located on an island setting but close to so much activity and nearby beaches. We loved taking the train into Boston, visiting all the historical sites along the "Freedom Trail." The seaside communities of Salem, Swampscott & Marblehead are all close by and offer an array of great restaurants in the area. Of course my favorite highlight was to cook our own lobsters in the big kitchen in the house (there are actually 2)! The separate living arrangements make it ideal for couples or larger families as well. Ocean views and sounds are amazing, and comfortable bedrooms make for a restful night. Plenty of room for any event and socializing. We would definitely come back to this beautiful and unique venue.

Large house, big dining room table, secluded upscale location, very nice owners

  • 4 of 5

We had 12-15 people and it was nice to have everyone together. The house is in pretty good condition on the inside, looks like it could use some touching up on the exterior, but that didn't bother us.

I met both of the owners (husband and wife) and they were very helpful for anything we asked. I would stay here again.

The main floor has 3 bedrooms: 1) two queen beds, 2) two queen beds, 3) one queen bed. The 'basement' has 2 bedrooms: 4) one full size and one twin bed, 5) one queen bed - semi private as it has louvered doors on one side. I think we had 2 rollabeds. All 3 main floor bedrooms had sliding glass doors that open to the dining room - odd for a house, but this was or can be used for meetings. It wasn't a problem.

Plenty of parking next to the house. The deck was pretty large and nice to watch the ocean and stuff. Plenty of seating for casual hanging out. All of the furnishings were pretty good - none was unacceptable.

meeting for eight professionals

  • 5 of 5

The space worked well for comfortable meeting space and good cooking together fun. The scenery and neighborhood were spectacular. The home is adequately furnished and stocked, though it is not elegantly appointed, and we could tell it had been a 1950's remodel. It was excellent for our purposes and would be terrific for a large family, or two families vacationing together, as it had a kitchen and bedrooms on two floors. We loved the all glass room at the top...perfect for meditating! We will be back.

Spacious home with ocean views from every window

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! We were looking for a relaxing oceanfront home, spacious enough to accommodate 4 couples and our young children for a little getaway, and this home was perfect!! The accommodations were very comfortable and the home has a great layout with enough eating and living space for a larger group. The ocean views, sunrises and sunsets were just breathtaking and the sound of the waves against the rocks was so relaxing!

The owners were an absolute pleasure to communicate with as well. We had a wonderful experience and would love to return in the future! I would highly recommend this property!
