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.

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.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner explained very well the way and we enjoyed our stay. Would recommend any time.

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.

Great location.

  • 3 of 5

Location was great. Deck very nice. Great to be able to walk to the oceanfront. House is quirky but sufficient. Wife was disappointed. Electronics need an update (tv's). House is better for a family as opposed to three couples in there 50's.

Owner's Response: We'll be getting new televisions over the winter, so T.V.-loving guests should consider holding off until then : ) Agreed that the house is quirky--which we consider a feature, not a bug!
