Overview

Merrimack Valley & Essex County 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.

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.

The Pond House was absolutely perfect for our family!

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful Family Vacation at the Pond House. My grandchildren each had their own room, my son and daughter-in-law enjoyed the Master Bedroom with ensuite and walk-out balcony and I had a beautifully bright good size bedroom which I could view the Pond from the windows.

The kitchen was well equipped, bathrooms well appointed and it was just the perfect house for us. Hope to return in the future. Highly recommend it!

Beautiful, quiet and relaxing

We had a wonderful time at the Pond House listening to the frogs and birds watching the ducks and herron. The deck was great for early coffee and breakfast would stay there again.

My family and i enjoyed our stay at Marblehead. It was a perfect location a beautiful neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

My family and i enjoyed our stay at Marblehead. It was a perfect location in a beautiful neighbourhood and friendly neighbours.

We were delighted that our Host Henry was our immediate neighbour. We enjoyed the surroundings with the pond, greens and sound of birds throughout the day.

The house was warm and had everything that we needed and perfect to be called a Home away from Home.

Thank you Henry. I definitely recommend and will definitely stay or at least revisit the place if i happen to be around Boston again.

A great find!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Marblehead for 2 nights visiting relatives and the Pond House was the perfect place to stay! We were able to spend some time hanging out on the deck which overlooks the pond and found the neighborhood very quiet and peaceful. Working with Henry (the owner) was great! He returned emails promptly and the entire booking process went very smoothly!

Many thanks to Henry for providing us a "home away from home" for the weekend!
