Marblehead House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom/2.5 Bath nifty Marblehead house, close to Salem & accessible to Boston

Come stay in our refurbished and four bedroom house on a quiet, beautiful private way in Marblehead, MA. You can sip cocktails on the deck overlooking the pond as the sun sets while your children feed the ducks and play with the turtles, frogs and fish of the pond.

You can stroll to the private rocky beach a short five minute walk away or drive 5 minutes to the sandy town beach where you can enjoy chowder and a lobster while your children build sandcastles or play on the playground equipment.

In addition to all Marblehead has to offer, we are minutes from downtown Salem, the "Witch City", home of the renowned Peabody Essex museum, and site of month-long celebrations in October leading up to Halloween.

Marblehead is a short 40 minute drive to Boston where you can stroll Newbury St., visit Faneuil Hall, or visit Fenway Park.

The Pond House for Our Sister's Trip

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house was just perfect for the four of us on our sister's trip. The location in Marblehead worked out well for visiting Salem as well as Boston, and exploring the New England coastline. While driving into Boston was a challenge, we learned how to take the Blueline subway into Boston which made travel and parking so much easier. The Pond House was comfortable, having everything we needed, and the setting was simply beautiful! We were excited to see an egret on the pond one morning! Henry was very helpful and patient with our questions on how to get around, Staying at the Pond House in Marblehead was a highlight of our trip for 5 very fall-like days in October, 2016.

Great location.

  • 3 of 5

Location was great. Deck very nice. Great to be able to walk to the oceanfront. House is quirky but sufficient. Wife was disappointed. Electronics need an update (tv's). House is better for a family as opposed to three couples in there 50's.

Owner's Response: We'll be getting new televisions over the winter, so T.V.-loving guests should consider holding off until then : ) Agreed that the house is quirky--which we consider a feature, not a bug!

The Pond House

  • 4 of 5

This was a great location for our family gathering. The house has plenty of bedrooms and baths and a huge deck overlooking the pond. There was no a/c but plenty of fans and only two really humid days. We all enjoyed watching the wildlife in and around the pond and everyone fell in love with Henry's dog, Iggy.

Marblehead has cycling trails and a lovely downtown. The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem had wonderful exhibits. Along with spending a day in Boston and visiting Rockport and Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester there was much to do. All in all, a fun week.

Pond House

  • 4 of 5

The Pond House was a great vacation haven where my family spent one week enjoying the Idyllic surroundings. We felt like we were in a fairy tale place with ducks, frogs, turtles and fantastic birds. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the beach almost every day. The kitchen appliances and the electronics could use an upgrade, but once we got use to the quirks, we managed to focus on the joys of being together and the peace and serenity around us. A great place to vacation.
