About Laurel

I've lived in Marblehead all my life. I enjoy traveling and seeing all that the world has to offer. I love to cook fresh, natural and local foods. I also enjoy boating, skiing and entertaining with friends and family.

Laurel purchased this house in 1977

Why Laurel chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

Marblehead is comprised of many summer cottages. This property is our family home, which was originally purchased by my grandparents. This home is both cozy and charming. It represents all of what this wonderful town is all about.

What makes this house unique

located off a main road in Marblehead. Sunny home with great front porch to watch the sunset or walk down the street to Salem Harbor. Friendly neighborhood!

Wonderful home, close to the water, great community

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at this home. It is very close to the water (literally a 20 second walk - you can see the water sitting on the porch). Our kids loved to see the tide come in and go out and enjoyed finding beach glass and sea shells. The house is also only a few minutes drive from the downtown area of Marblehead, but also walkable. Our family also really enjoyed reading books on the front porch and eating meals in back. We grilled most of our meals on the gas grill, which worked beautifully. As for other amenities, the WiFi was very strong, computer worked great, and we watched shows and movies on Netflix. Kitchen had pretty much every utensil we needed, so cooking and grilling was not a problem.

While only two bedrooms, it can accommodate a good number of people. Between a king bed, a futon and air mattress, we were able to very comfortably sleep six (4 adults, two kids who shared the air mattress).

The thing I most appreciated about the overall experience was working with Laurel. The owner is very responsive and friendly, typically responding to requests within a few minutes. With the stress of traveling with kids, that was a huge help.

If and when we ever travel to Marblehead in the future, we would absolutely stay here again. I would give this place 10 stars if I could. Thank you Laurel, for such a wonderful stay!

Wonderful house, beautiful views, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a wonderful week here in June. The house was so cozy and had everything we needed - awesome and well provisioned kitchen, comfortable bedrooms with nice linens, computer desk and fast Wi-Fi to keep up with work, cute front porch to take in the morning coffee and to watch the sunsets, a nice back deck with gas grill, and a relaxing family room with ample books, TV, Netflix / Amazon Prime, and a great music collection.

We couldn't have asked for more! The location is awesome, just a couple of houses up from the harbor and an easy walk to downtown along Jersey St, which we did many times. It was super quiet at night and so relaxing it really felt like home. The neighbors were very friendly and gave us a lot of advice whenever we'd bump into them on the street. The environment is really welcoming and cheerful.

This was also the perfect place to plan our daily activities - Rockport, Gloucester, Halibut Pt., Salem and of course downtown Boston.

Laurel was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and took wonderful care of us. Honestly the best vacation we've had in years. Hope to come back and will definitely stay again!

Wonderful house and a great location

  • 5 of 5

As many people often say the photographs don't do this home justice. It's a wonderful home to stay in and the front porch is just the loveliest place to have breakfast and the evening sunsets are breathtaking. The information supplied by Laurel was more than helpful and arrival was very easy. I would certainly book again in the future.

Very Cute, and great location close to the water!

  • 4 of 5

Laurel's home is a really cute cottage close to the water. You can see the Salem harbor with sail boats from the front porch. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and other necessities. The furniture was comfortable and cozy. Lots of clean towels and pillows, and the master bed was very comfortable as well.

On the con side. We got to the house late and it was very dark and difficult to find light switches. Also, the second bedroom's air conditioner did not have the correct adapter to be plugged into the wall. However, Laurel was on the phone with me and helped me locate one, so we could use the AC.

We thoroughly enjoyed the home, it was like being at our own place, thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Amita. I am happy you had a lovely trip to Marblehead and enjoyed the house. What happened to the adapter that was on the ac plug is still a mystery! Glad I was able to assist in directing you to one in the house. Thank you for the point about arriving at night and having lights on. The upstairs is still a bit cottage like with bedroom lamps. The hallway and bathroom light switches are updated and should offer enough light to find your way to the bedrooms. I will put some brighter light bulbs in the lamps, that should help. Enjoy the rest of the summer! Thank you again, you and your family were a delight to work with.

Beautiful home and amazing view of the water.

  • 5 of 5

The house was charming and cozy! It was everything we had hoped for in a vacation home. I really loved the variety of books to read and the comfy bed in the master room. Every morning we had our coffee on the front porch and enjoyed the ocean view. The neighbors were all so nice and friendly! Whole foods was nearby and the running trails only a mile away. I would park my car near Tower school and jump on the running trails for my daily dose of exercise! Laurel was attentive and always made sure we had what we needed. We will definetly come back when we visit our family in Salem.
