    Additional Location Information
    Chestnut Sweet is in a residential neighborhood, one of Marblehead's oldest. Called the Shipyard, the neighborhood was once the site of thriving ship-building commerce. Today, it's a friendly collection of old and new homes, singles and families. The Sweet is adjacent to our home, in a separate building just across the garden. Parking is easy and free during the summer months, slightly restricted in the winter. (We are open year-round.) Marblehead is a great walking town, so most everything is within easy distance of the Sweet. There is plenty to see in town: our historic Fort Sewall on the ocean, Marblehead Harbor, dozens of historic pre-Revolutionary War homes and buildings, and a town full of interesting shops and stores where owners always welcome visitors.

Everything about this rental was top notch! Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, it was a wonderful place to stay. Francie was so responsive to our questions and requests via e-mail prior to our visit and greeted us upon our arrival with a warm and friendly welcome. We loved Marblehead and Chestnut Sweet and only wish we could have stayed longer! more
