We had the best time staying in Marblehead at the Chestnut Sweet! Francie is a wonderful hostess and could not have been more accommodating. I would love to come back with my husband one day!
Found Chestnut Sweet when browsing for a suitable base to spend 4 or 5 days exploring New England immediately north of Boston. It was the perfect find for us
a delightful retreat in a quiet street in Marblehead, only yards from the sea. All of our needs were catered for down to the supply of complementary bicycles for exploring the surrounding area. Francie and Bob are both very approachable their major concern is that you have no concerns while at 'the sweet'. My wife who has very high standards ( after all she married me ...lol) was particularly impressed with the décor, the attention to detail and the relaxed feel of the place. So if you are looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful part of the world then 'the sweet ' is well worthy of consideration
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.
