Nestled in the heart of historic old town Marblehead, Brackett Cottage is a mere 1 -minute walk to shops and restaurants. A 5 -minute walk takes you to a beach on Marblehead's famous harbor. While away a perfect day, watching sailboats and schooners soar past.

A visit to Brackett Cottage of historic Marblehead transports the traveler back in time when world travelers were courageous and few, and America emblazoned revolutionary spirit. Brackett Cottage celebrates the libertarian spirit while showcasing the owners’ pride of Marblehead. Brackett Cottage harkens back to a time when travelers returned home with wares from long global jaunts. Each piece tells a story. Visitors are embraced by the wares of a global traveler juxtaposed with items that celebrate Marblehead’s seafaring and revolutionary history.

Brackett Cottage elegantly encircles you with fine prints, antique style dinner ware, and nautical charts that represent Marblehead’s seafaring role in the American Revolution, War of 1812 and World War I. Immerse in the story of Marblehead, as it serves as the birthplace to the U.S. Navy, while admiring famous ships, tapestries, tables and lamps from around the world.

This New England colonial, built in 1810, features seafaring pieces that reflect the town's character. Each one has been hand -selected to tell the story of this home and one of the most distinct towns in Boston’s North Shore, Marblehead.

Brackett Cottage was built by a shipwright for a shipwright – everything about this home is unique. No two rooms have the same shape or height; every room has a colonial era fireplace and a tilt earned through the centuries. Built -ins abound, and the staircase with brass rail feels more appropriate in a ship than a home.

If you want an elegantly appointed, unique accommodation, Brackett Cottage is the place for you. Guest note: as is typical with many colonial era homes, ceilings and doorways are a little lower than today’s standards. Tall people may need to duck through doorways. Stairways are narrow, and floors slope.

At Brackett Cottage, each room provides a cozy place for you to relax and reflect.

In the Living Room, it’s easy to imagine family, friends, and neighbors gathered around the fireplace on the couch or the swivel chairs, sharing news and stories. The fireplace with electric insert and cozy lighting provides the perfect ambience for parlor games and conversations.

The Dining Room welcomes guests to host elegant and intimate dinner parties, or to read by the fireplace. The dining table accommodates 4 -6 with dinnerware and glassware displayed in the built -in sideboard. If the natural wood of this room could talk, the stories it would tell!

Alongside the built -in sideboard, guests find a telephone with unlimited service to North America. Thus, saving our international visitors from incurring roaming charges for calls to local establishments. The owners graciously offer this as part of the rental rate.

The Kitchen comprises full -sized appliances and all the furnishings to cook any family meal from a simple continental breakfast to a full dinner. As you exit the
