Highly would recommend staying at this perfect suite!! Wonderful owners, very welcoming, and amazing place!

Response from the owner Thank you Alyssa and Mark, for this lovely comment! We really enjoyed meeting you and hope you'll plan on another visit to our Sweet soon. We loved having you there! Francie

“The home and stay were wonderful - perfectly wonderful!”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2016

The rental home is amazing. The home is decorated so tastefully, and it is filled with very quality furnishings and linens. We felt that the home was quite spacious and the layout worked very well for us. The microwave, keurig and mini-fridge were all that we needed. The electric fireplace was perfect! We would absolutely rent this home again if/when in the Marblehead area. The location is unbeatable as it is near the coast line, stores, and restaurants. Chestnut Sweet is on a side road and there was plenty of street parking. Francie and Bob were helpful the whole way through - from booking..through arrival/departure. They were available if we needed anything, but everything was set up in a way that there were no questions or needs.

Response from the owner Wow, thank you both so much! This was humbling and lovely to read, and we are so very glad your visit was a fine one. We would love to have you back again, and hope to see you often in Marblehead! Francie

“I can only concur with previous five star comments.”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2016

I must apologise for taking 8 months to post this review. This was our fourth visit to Marblehead from the U.K. Accommodation has always been excellent but this property was exceptional. I can only concur with previous five star comments, adding that Francie and Robert waited up for us when our flight from London was delayed. ChestnutSweet is definitely our first choice for a future visit to Marblehead.

Response from the owner Dear Elaine, What a lovely note from you, and we both thank you! We loved meeting you and hope your visit last fall to our Chestnut Sweet was the first of many to come. Francie King

“Great Fourth of July!”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2015

We just returned from a wonderful Fourth of July at Chesnut Sweet. Francie and Bob's kind hospitality and attention to detail made for a perfect vacation in Marblehead. Chestnut Sweet is very comfortable, immaculately cleaned and conveniently located to the best of Marblehead.

Response from the owner Dear Alison and family, Thanks for this lovely review and comment, and let us tell you how much we enjoyed meeting you and welcoming you back to Marblehead! It was a great Fourth this year, and you rang it in in our beautiful town. So glad. Please do come back and visit again? All best, Francie

“A Wonderful Stay!”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2015

My wife and I traveled to Marblehead in early April and stayed 5 nights at Chestnut Sweet. We had a wonderful time visiting Boston, Marblehead, Gloucester, Salem, and Rockport. What a beautiful area! Francie and Bob were wonderful hosts and were more than happy to answer any questions we had and offer guidance in getting around the area from the best ways of travel to the best local resturants. Thanks so much for the wonderful stay!!

Response from the owner Mark and Michelle, again my great thanks for your review! You can bet that it will make a great difference when others come to look at Chestnut Sweet and see your words. Wonderful! And I hope we'll see you again soon in Marblehead! Francie

“Like being met at the door with a pair of slippers and a glass of wine after a hard day at work.”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2014

Can't say enough good thing about our stay here. Hosts were friendly and accommodating. The cottage was amazingly clean and wonderfully decorated. The linens, pillows and towels were all high quality. Our host thought of everything to meet our needs from a bottle of wine to a tube of toothpaste. The location was wonderful too. We spent a lot of time in Salem that is just a short drive away, but we look forward to going back in the spring to explore the beaches and small towns in the area.

Response from the owner Dear Debbie, Thank you for the wonderful review and for letting us be your landing spot for the Great Salem Adventure at Halloween! We could not have asked for more enthusiastic or accommodating guests and we hope this will be your first of many stays at the Sweet. We'll look forward to seeing you again in the coming year! Francie King

“Perfect Vacation from Our Vacation!”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

We arrived at Chestnut Sweet a bit worn out from the previous 6 days with friends exploring Cape Cod, and the Kings' attention to so many luxurious details made for a wonderful two days to rest and recharge. From the premium bottled water chilled in the little kitchenette to the lovely bottle of Italian red wine awaiting us, we found everything we might need or want at hand. Fluffy robes, cozy bedding and a fantastic high-end bathroom (and a half, upstairs) -- they have thought of it all. We took their restaurant recommendations and were happy we did, and we also borrowed from their nice collection of travel-related publications to spend a fun rainy day exploring the North of Boston route by car. As former vacation home hosts on Flipkey ourselves, we truly appreciate the considerable time, effort and thought that the Kings have put into Chestnut Sweet. I cannot imagine a nicer place to stay, in or out of the city of Boston.

Response from the owner Dear friends of the Sweet, With many apologies for this late response, THANK YOU for the splendid review! We loved having you with us, and we are delighted that the stay was a happy one. This brings hopes that you'll return again and again -- we'd be so pleased! Francie King

“Warm, Cozy, & Clean”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2014

Wonderful and recently refinished garage apartment with private sitting room/bedroom, living/TV room, kitchenette, full bathroom on the first floor, and a loft style bedroom with a half bath on the second floor. Owners have done a beautiful job designing the layout and decorating the entire place, with premium furniture and accessories. Although they give you plenty of privacy, they are so nice and friendly, you feel tempted to befriend them and share a few glasses of wine in the garden. Great attention to detail much like a hotel stay with carefully placed free hygiene products and bottles of water. I would recommend that the owners up the WIFI strength a bit - although in a retreat like this one, you don't necessarily need connection to the outside world, but it's nice to have on a rainy day in case you want to watch a movie on Netflix or something. There is a TV with basic cable. Overall, I love Marblehead and this house is close to both the historic downtown area with restaurants and shops and Devereaux Beach, where they have stand up paddleboarding for $20 an hour and parking is only $10 for the day. Nice and easy commute from Boston or anywhere else you may be coming from, as the North Shore is devoid of the annoying Cape summer traffic!

Response from the owner Thank you so very much for taking the time to review Chestnut Sweet. Your feedback is so valuable as we continue to welcome travelers and vacationers. We've also upgraded our Wifi connection, so it's vastly improved over what you experienced. We hope you'll visit again, and continue to enjoy Marblehead! F.B King owner

“Pristine, well appointed cottage with all the comforts of home!”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2014

We were in Marblehead for only a couple of days but what a welcome cottage Chestnut Sweet was! Perfectly clean and incredibly comfortable, we wish we had more time to have been there! Delightful location in a pretty little neighborhood within walking distance of so much! Immaculate and tastefully decorated.

Response from the owner What lovely words! Thank you so very much. We're delighted you enjoyed your time in Marblehead, and we hope to see you again soon! F. King, owner
