My husband I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was absolutely beautiful! Just a block or two from a gorgeous view of the water, and it seemed like only 5 minutes away from Salem. My husband and I were astonished at how welcoming and nice the people of Marblehead and Salem were! Francie and Bob are one of the sweetest couples you could ever have to accommodate a vacation stay! They were warm, welcoming, and generous! The sweet was absolutely home for our period there. It was such a comfortable environment--we didn't want to leave! If you're considering a stay in the Salem area you HAVE to stay at the Chestnut Sweet! Thank you Francie and Bob for being such good hosts! You made our honeymoon that much sweeter!
Beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated cottage in a great location. Francie was warm and welcoming, and responded to all our needs. We were delighted to discover a bottle of wine, a big bowl of fresh fruit, plus juice, milk, and coffee - and a little bag of chocolates on our pillows! Thank goodness for the terrific central air conditioning...it was 101! My only challenge, as someone who is highly sensitive, were the fumes from the attached double garage. So Francie asked her husband to park in the driveway for the remainder of our stay. If you like to sleep in, you may want to bring a sleep mask to block out the light from the skylights in the upstairs bedroom. But who wants to sleep late when you are in lovely Marblehead? Thanks so much, Francie!
We had a most wonderful time staying at Chestnut Sweet, a magical cottage tucked away, but within an easy walk to all Marblehead has to offer. Our hosts, Francie and Bob, were warm and gracious; and, they made sure we had everything we needed!
The cottage itself is a destination! It is the perfect place to relax after a day strolling the many historic sights of Marblehead. It is very beautifully appointed and peaceful. You will not be disapointed!
They cottage was amazing. Very close to Salem and Boston. Marblehead itself was beautiful. Restaurants close by and food was great!!! Can't say enough. Had a great weekend getaway.
Great place very very clean. Lovey people. Would go back again.Decorated nicely and they were very helpful. The neighborhood was amazing!
From our initial booking online, we received warm and quick replies to ensure a smooth arrival to our Sweet accommodation. Bob welcomed us and gave us a tour of what was to be our home base for the next few days. The Sweet was cozy, clean and offered all the comforts of home with added touches that showed our hosts, Francie and Bob, cared about us. Marblehead was the perfect spot to day trip along the coast and into Boston. The town is right on the water and is quaint and walkable to some great eateries and shops. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Mahalo, Francie and Bob, for a wonderful stay and for your warm hospitality. If our travels take us to the area again, Chestnut Sweet will be our first choice of accommodation.
