Romantic Hideaway, Steps from the Sea

Additional Location Information

Chestnut Sweet is in one of Marblehead's oldest neighborhoods, close to the sea. 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 walking distance of the Sweet. There is plenty to see: 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. The annual town-wide Marblehead Festival of Arts takes place every Fourth of July, balanced nicely by our yearly Christmas Walk in early December. Much of our town has some connection to the sea: we are a sailing and boating town (with no fewer than 5 yacht clubs), there are several good public beaches, and we've hosted several Tall Ships. There is a very good Visitors Center in the middle of town, should you have questions about seasonal events and places. Our Sweet is within walking distance of churches and temples, coffee shops, clothing boutiques, gourmet food shops, a movie theater, and a wonderful range of restaurants.
