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.

Relaxing by the pond!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Oct 21, 2009

On our East Coast quest for New England adventure and autumn beauty (commonly known as “Leaf Peeping”), we were drawn to the town of Marblehead, MA. Marblehead was rich in seafaring history, colonial enchantment and coastal beauty. Our host - truly a bear lover- graciously received our company and provided a charming home complete with honey! Nestled in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, “The Pond House” provided a warm and cozy atmosphere during our vacation. Four bedrooms offered ample space for our needs. Living up to its name, the home’s location overlooking a pond filled us with peace and serenity. One can view the pond from both inside the home, as well as on the outside, expansive deck. Wishing to experience more of this charming neighborhood and its proximity to the sea, a two-minute walk brought us down to the shoreline. The diversity of rocky outcroppings and sandy shores was absolutely breathtaking! Located just 40 minutes from Boston, this home is an ideal place to experience all that northern Massachusetts had to offer. The owners provided great suggestions for local restaurants and points of interest. They lived nearby and were available to answer any questions during our stay. During our visit, we drove to Salem to experience the Haunted Happenings Halloween Festival. Salem is only a short drive from Marblehead and offered plenty of local festivities and fun. We fell in love with the local cuisine, the friendly people, and the colonial architecture during our Massachusetts trip. Marblehead is beautiful and recommended for anyone wanting to enjoy the history, beauty, and diversity of the New England coast. The VRBO Bear

Vacation week in New England

Our stay at the pond house was very nice. It was a great location and close to other cities in Massachusetts. The house was charming and we felt right at home. Henry and his neighbors were very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful, homey new England beach community. Great for families.

  • 5 of 5

Small functional 4 bedroom home on little pond with ducks and turtles. Clean. Homes closer together expected, but still quiet and private. Information on local walks, beaches, amenities readily available. Games and books available. Beds comfortable. Some wear and tear on master shower and kitchen cupboards. But 2nd one clean and comfortable. A little short on wash cloths, plenty of blankets and towels. Washer and dryer available.

Lovely place, awesome location!

I was traveling with my parents and 2 young children. The pond house provided everything we needed to maintain nap schedules, exercise a 4 year old and allow my parents to relax. It couldn't have been better!

The Pond House was charming, cozy, and clean.

What a wonderful place to stay on vacation! We were close to everything we wanted to see; the ocean, Boston, and Salem.

After a long day sightseeing, we looked forward to relaxing at our cozy 'home' and hope one day we can return.
