The space

This is actually a little suite in a charming post and beam house in the seaside town of Marblehead. The house is in a secluded spot in the woods yet within ten minutes walk of charming coves and the historic old town. You will have your own small but sweet bedroom with skylight, private full bath, and sitting room with desk and wifi. Great light. The bed is a "Full" platform bed with an Ikea mattress.

Marblehead is a historic destination town with good shops, restaurants, harbor, and natural beauty. Only seventeen miles from Boston and Cambridge, it's a good stop-over between Boston and points north and also very handy to historic Salem. The included sitting room/study and quiet setting make this suite a great place for writing or work.

Susan welcome us like we were part of her family. Her home is wonderful and so peaceful. Have your breakfast and coffee on her terrace and you will understand. Plus Marblehead is a really nice stop if you're on your way to Boston, nice little beaches and great little shops.

Marblehead is a good option for those wanting to stay at an historic area, or who want to have easy access to Salem or Boston's Logan Airport. Susan's accommodation is located on the fringe of a wooded area and a short drive, (or 15 minute walk) to the historic village of Marbleh…
