Perfect Place for a Weekend in Marblehead!

  • 5 of 5

What a great apartment! Definitely recommend it!

First, the location is ideal: blocks from Crocker Park overlooking the beautiful Marblehead Harbor, and also blocks from shopping areas in old town, downtown and Marblehead's rich colonial history (Abbot Hall, Lee Mansion, etc). The perfect spot to get to know Marblehead.

Second, the apartment is fabulous. The owners recently renovated the apartment and did everything right: they managed to keep the house's rich history and personality so you feel like you're back in the 1700s, while renovating the kitchen and bathroom to today's world and beauty. There's a big tv (equipped with cable and all channels imagineable), working fireplace in the lovely living space, and a BIG deck overlooking the water across the's simply ideal and so Marblehead.

Third, the owners are terrific - right balance of friendly and available while not intrusive (there if you need them, not there if you don't). They answered every text about the apartment before and during our stay within minutes.

Want to see Marblehead and have a great stay...look no further. Perfect spot.

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl greeted us upon our arrival and made us feel at home. The living room and bedroom were nicely furnished, with a modern kitchen and bath. Cleanliness is important and this apartment passed my test! We didn't want to leave. We plan to return next year. If there had been a TV in the bedroom it would have been beyond perfection. However, I highly recommend staying at Cheryl and David's residence and look forward to a return visit.

Beautiful, cozy accommodations in 18th century home with views of the water from your front door!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Marblehead thanks to Cheryl and Dave! They were wonderful hosts. Marblehead is such a charming town, with the historic downtown area just steps away with quaint shops and restaurants. We stayed a few days to visit Salem and Boston, as well. It's the perfect location if you plan on visiting several areas like we did, or if you're just looking for a quiet retreat. We also had our dog with us; the area is so dog friendly, and the local dog park is just a 10 minute walk up the road. We so enjoyed our stay, and if we're ever back in the area, we know where we'll be staying again!

Perfect place to spend a long weekend

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was stunning! Cozy and comfortable and full of character, just like in the photos. We also could not have asked for better hospitality. We arrived later than expected due to traffic but were greeted when we got there and given the full tour of the apartment. The Pattens have thought of everything, the apartment was equipped with everything we could have ever needed. Plus laundry, the fireplace, and the beautiful view from the deck--all such great features. The apartment is perfectly located in Marblehead and it was just a quick drive to Salem. Just a beautiful, comfortable place to stay where you'll feel right at home. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!!
