Francie’s hideaway
This is my second time staying at Francie’s property. She is the most AMAZING host. Goes above and beyond for her guests and is as sweet as can be! We were beyond comfortable all weekend. Love Marblehead and the locals. Can’t wait to get back!

5/5 Excellent

Cozy, amazing, relaxing stay
We stayed in this little cottage for a weekend visit and it was incredible. It was impeccably clean with all sorts of little details to make us feel at home, for example: tiny paper cups in the bathroom, fresh flowers, extra toiletries, and throw blankets. The decor is just perfect and the house is cozy, home-like, and comfortable. The shower is amazing. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We ended up having a major storm while we were there but we loved snuggling up by the fire, listening to the rain on the roof, and relaxing. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. I haven't been somewhere so quiet in a really long time. There are cute local restaurants a short walk away. I highly recommend this place!
