My place is close to several beaches. You’ll love my place because it's a great coastal community. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. The bedroom is air conditioned. The sofa is a queen size sleeper.

The space

Our cottage is heated and cooled by the earth with a geothermal heating/cooling system. The first floor is a living room with cable tv, a kitchen, but no stove, a bathroom, and front and back doors. The second floor is the bedroom with a large closet and laundry facilities.

Guest access

At the far end of the driveway is parking for one car. There is a small set of stone stairs that leads you to the back porch and back door of the cottage. The front door of the cottage brings you to a large wrap around porch with rocking chairs, a bench, and a chaise.

The setting of the Cottage By The Sea is located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood a little more than a mile from historic Marblehead. The hosts thought of every detail to make our stay a comfortable and relaxing one. The annex was in pristine condition. It was roomy and much better than staying in a hotel. The bedroom was upstairs and complete with washer and dryer which was very convenient. The refrigerator had breakfast items for us for each day we were there. We would like to stay longer next year when we return to see my son who lives in Salem. Thank you for making our stay in Marblehead a memorable one.

Nancy's place was gorgeous. It is a cottage attached to Nancy's main house...apparently it's actually the original cottage and they built the main house onto it which is cool! The cottage was cozy and was definitely big enough for my boyfriend and I. Although it was attached to the main house, it still felt very private. It was beachy and rustic while still being modern. The downstairs has a living room with a TV, a bathroom, and the kitchen (no stove/oven but otherwise very up to date). The upstairs is just the bedroom. There is a shared back patio area and front porch with rocking chairs. There was plenty of room for parking. Nancy left us food for breakfast/snacks which was so thoughtful. Check-in process was a breeze. The cottage was located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Every night we walked to a little harbor/park that was less than half a mile away. Approximately 5 minute drive to downtown Marblehead. The only minor issue was that the wifi was spotty, but it was definitely not a deal-breaker. Would absolutely recommend!

I loved my time at Nancy's place. The cottage was private, cozy, perfectly and beautifully stocked with everything you could possibly want - and the upstairs bedroom was heavenly. Great bed, with wonderful seaside breezes blowing through the windows. Nancy was the perfect host - gracious and welcoming while allowing me my privacy. I will be back!

This is a wonderful place to stay.... walking distance to the sights and sounds of Marblehead, beautifully and simply appointed, QUIET QUIET QUIET, extremely comfortable. It was perfect for exploring, and for holing up to work for a few days. Highly recommend.

Nancy's cottage was very comfortable. My daughter and I enjoyed it very much. Very nice setup. The kitchen had everything needed to be able to cook a meal in it. It was very comfortable for the two of us. If laundry needed to be done she had a washer and dryer. I would recommend Nancy's Cottage by the Sea.
