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.

Reviews

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

Lovely place, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Incredible location! Quiet, picturesc, ....gem of Marblehead!

  • 5 of 5

We used the pond house as a rejuvenation spot after a 10 day road trip through Maine. It checked every box. Even those we didn't have time or energy to use (beach chairs, cooler, barbecue...) Henry greeted us and was there for any questions. Would definitely come back when we have time to enjoy the area more and use the incredible deck for an alfresco dinner.

Peaceful sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

The pond house was a peaceful sanctuary during a very busy stay in Marblehead. We visited for our daughter's bridal shower in Salem - the house was lovely and we enjoyed the ducks, turtles and bullfrogs immensely! Loved the serenity of the neighborhood and the quick walk to the ocean. Great house!

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic house is on a beautiful lake so you can enjoy your morning coffee in the company of ducks, squirrels and turtles and at night you can enjoy a nice glass of wine with the frogs serenading. The house was immaculate and has everything you could possibly need to be more than comfortable. You could not ask for anything more.

Owner's Response: Wow! I hope every guest enjoys the house this much. My only comment that it is really a rather modest-sized pond, rather than a lake! But it's a lively and pretty pond.

The location and as atmosphere is great. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and relax. We enjoyed the pond animals and nearby rocky beach.
