“I'll be back!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

This was the perfect place for me to explore Marblehead. Close to transport as well to venture to Boston, Swampscott etc.
Loved the house and gardens, and couldn't have been made more welcome. Had many chats with Jim and Nancy and enjoyed several breakfasts of Crepes, Scones, OJ and Coffee.
Very comfy bed, and was free to come and go, sometimes wandering in at all hours of the morning.
Both Hosts were very helpful, not just for their tips etc on what to see but also taking me to the Post Office with a large box I had to send back to Aust' and a sight -seeing drive around the Neck.
Thanks so much Jim & Nancy, I will definitely be back next year!!

Lovely Marblehead house with a resident artist, Nancy Ferguson. Room had comfy bed and chair. Art by Nancy abounds throughout the house. Shared bath between two rooms. No air conditioning but comfortable with fan. Price was right and breakfast in the English Garden was excellent.

Room Tip: Queen-bedded room was in rear of house. The house is on a quiet side street.

These are nice enough people. Very nice, in fact. However, I felt completely mislead by the description of "Bed & Breakfast". This is no Bed & Breakfast. This is literally, living with somebody else's grandparents. They simply rent out their children's old rooms in their home and you become their houseguests. Zero privacy, creepy, not for me.

Stayed in October. Week before I fell and had to wear a brace on my leg. Thought I would have to cancel our stay but The owners helped me out in many ways to make the stay comfortable . Their company was fun to be with and very interesting. The morning breakfast was just enough . Loved the creapes. Had a short but nice stay. Only thing is the bathroom needs a little updating. Would stay again.

The Pink House is hard to rate. We absolutely adored the innkeepers, a couple of seventy-year-old empty nesters who've converted their former children's rooms to guest lodging. Our room was clean but could use some updates. Only one outlet worked and one of the bedside lamps was burnt out. Nevertheless, breakfast was fine - scones, coffee, juice, and fruit crepes with plenty of sugar. Nancy and James are great breakfast conversationalists. They have all kinds of interesting insights on Marblehead; plus, Nancy has painted every square of town in watercolors which decorate every inch of wall. All in all, a bit of an odd experience, but also quite pleasant and memorable.

My sister and I enjoyed staying at this intimate B & B for one night while in the area for a family party. The older couple hosts have lived here as their primary home for many years and sleep upstairs in their bedroom just across the hall. It is just a 2 room B & B with a shared bath. However, it was a delightful time for we 2 sisters as we thoroughly enjoyed a lengthy Sunday brunch at the dining table with the hosts, the Fergusons, eating delicious homemade fruit crepes and berry scones. They are a well-traveled and intelligent couple who were interesting to sit and chat with. The accomodations were very clean and comfortable. I would come again for sure, but maybe not with my husband as it was not very private. I definitely felt as though I was a guest in someone's home. The house was filled with Mrs. F.'s artwork and was of Victorian achitecture as is prevalent in Marblehead. A very pleasant experience at an appealing house!
