About the property

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.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Pond Cottage. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The owner was very helpful in answering all of our questions before we arrived and while we were there. I would highly recommend a stay at The Pond Cottage. There were so many fun and interesting things to do and see in the area. Thanks for a great trip!

Great get away spot

  • 4 of 5

Just got my family together from Florida and Virginia for an early holiday trip to Boston to see extended family. The place was warm in spite of the cold and snowfall. The wood stove was not only useful for heat but really set the mood with hot chocolate while watching the snow falling on the pond and deck. The well appointed kitchen had everything we needed to make some holiday treats and cook for the six adults. The granddaughter loved feeding the ducks on the pond and made her first snowman. I highly recommend the Pond House for your next vacation.

Vacation week in New England

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the pond house was very nice. It was a great location and close to other cities in Massachusetts. The house was charming and we felt right at home. Henry and his neighbors were very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful, homey new England beach community. Great for families.

  • 5 of 5

Small functional 4 bedroom home on little pond with ducks and turtles. Clean. Homes closer together expected, but still quiet and private. Information on local walks, beaches, amenities readily available. Games and books available. Beds comfortable. Some wear and tear on master shower and kitchen cupboards. But 2nd one clean and comfortable. A little short on wash cloths, plenty of blankets and towels. Washer and dryer available.
