Overview

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.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here four nights and it was the perfect location for visiting Salem and Boston as daytrips, especially since we had our toddler with us. Actually, it worked perfect just driving 15min to Salem to get dinner, or Ubering to Salem for a bar crawl. I cannot tell you enough how grateful I was to open up the master bedroom closet and find the pack 'n play for our baby to sleep in. One less thing to bring on the plane! Thank you!

The property was adorable, well maintained and was in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had my sister's low key bachelorette weekend here and it was perfect. While we would have loved to enjoy the deck in warm weather, we had below freezing temps with wind chill. But, the house was still perfect. It was clean and had everything we needed for a weekend away. We had a great time just hanging in the living room and having a cozy fire. The kitchen provided everything we needed and the # of bathrooms was great for our group of 6. The layout of the house is great and the bedrooms were clean, warm and we could all control our own heat throughout the house. The view of the pond were nice and we were able to enjoy seeing bits of the sunset. We highly recommend this house and would consider renting again!

Pleasant, relaxing experience

  • 4 of 5

Pond House was exactly as advertised. Our stay was pleasant. The location was great. The rooms fit our needs. Our family members came from Washington, Wisconsin and New Hampshire so the proximity to Logan Airport was good and the house itself provided an opportunity to share time together and spread out. And our eco-conscious group appreciated that recycling was encouraged.

Nice house, well maintained, in a nice location. House is small but has everything you need. Bed was a little hard but we slept well.

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.
