About Francie King
Your hosts are Francie King and husband Robert Erbetta. Francie is a writer and book editor, and Robert is a facilities manager and historic-house renovator. They have lived and worked in Marblehead for several decades and consider fine hospitality one of life's purest pleasures. They are deeply familiar with the North Shore, where Marblehead is located north of Boston, and eager to share its gifts with their guests.
Why Francie King chose Marblehead
We invite guests to fully enjoy the Sweet, while encouraging them to explore Marblehead, fall in love with it (as many do) and return often. The Sweet is located in a neighborhood that hugs the waterfront, and that once housed shipbuilders, fishing captains, and waterfront workers. The Sweet itself, located in its own building with its own small outside brick patio adjacent to a lush garden, is ideal for a summer stay, but equally pleasurable during the winter months, providing a cozy fireplaced retreat. The Sweet's central location means that many guests simply park and leave their cars during their stay, while visiting Marblehead's shops, restaurants, historic sites, and beaches, nearly all of which are within easy walking distance. Ours is a true walking town, with many amenities close by.
What makes this Townhome unique
Close to the harbor, beaches, parks, shops, and restaurants; private; quiet; reasonably priced; available year-round; and welcoming! Salem is a 15-minute drive away, and Boston can be reached by car (45 minutes) or public transport.
