“Fox Pond is Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2006

My g/f and I spent 2/24/06 through 2/27/06 at Fox Pond Inn, and had a marvelous time. Ted, the owner/host, has created a very cozy, warm, and friendly atmosphere at Fox Pond for his guests.

We stayed in the Pond Room, which is spacious and well appointed. The bathroom is worthy of a four or five star hotel, with two cut-glass sinks that light up from underneath and come on when anyone approaches the bathroom, a spacious shower and a bathtub/jacuzzi.

A walk-in closet has all the storage space a guest, or guests, could ever want. The bed is large and very comfortable. A gas fireplace with two comfy chairs and a tv in a recessed cabinet over the fireplace with a dvd/cd player are great for evening tv or fire watching.

The Inn also features a well appointed living room with a fireplace and tv and dvd/cd player and lots of comfortable seating.

Just a few minutes' drive from downtown Marblehead, the Inn is set back from the highway on a residential street where there is little or no background noise. The view out of the windows of the Pond room give the feeling of being way out in the countryside without the need of being miles away from anywhere.

Ted was very accomodating and attentive. He was very helpfull in us find restaurants and other services/locations in the are as we needed to find them, and was able to assist us over the phone twice when we got lost to find our way. Sophie, the Inn's resident canine hostess, is a wonderfull addition to the Fox Pond experience.

Breakfast was very tasty. Try the butter-rum muffins, they are quite good.

We both look forward to returning there again.

For anyone seeking a quiet, restfull, and civilized B&B to stay at in the Marblehead area, we strongly reccomend Fox Pond Inn.

My wife and I stayed in the pond room at the Fox Pond Inn. It was stunning with a 2 story glass wall overlooking the gardens in the rear of the house. The bathroom was fantastic with a really great shower and jacuzzi tub. What was really neat was the glass sinks that illuminated from underneath when you walked into the room (this is not a "rustic" kind of place). The bed was comfortable and we left the blinds up such that the morning light gradually woke us up to a beautiful view. The innkeeper Ted is an architect and has done an amazing job restoring this house into a beautiful bed and breakfast. Ted himself is a very nice gentleman and very pleasant to talk to. Additionally he is very knowledgable of the Marblehead area and can give good advice on sights and dining. Sophie the golden retriever is also a welcoming host. Only drawback would be if you are looking for a gourmet breakfast. Breakfast was very good but tends towards the "continental" style and is definitely informal. All in all though we were very pleased with our stay and would stay again.
