About Marblehead

Founded in 1629, Marblehead was a crucial fishing port during the American Revolution; much of its history can be discovered by navigating through the colorful, narrow streets of Old Town. Like an open-air museum, Marblehead flaunts its history not only in its well-preserved 18th-century houses and architecture, national historic landmarks and local shops are sprinkled throughout the town.

After meandering amongst the quaint Colonial houses, take a tour through Marblehead Neck, which leads to the lighthouse. Marvel at the breathtaking views of Marblehead Harbor, birthplace of the US Navy, & a major sailing capital.

Marblehead’s most popular beach, Devereux, has plenty of picnic tables, playgrounds, and on-site restrooms. Gas House Beach is on Little Harbor. With a rocky shore and small boats anchored in tranquil, shallow water, the scene at Gas House is perfectly New England. Active visitors can enjoy a paddle at King’s Beach with views of Boston.

Reviews

Incredible Oceanfront Escape
5/5 stars
We loved our stay at Rockcleft! The ocean views from almost every window are truly spectacular, and we watched the sun rise over the water on the large balcony attached to the second-floor Ocean Suite. The bathroom in the Owner's Suite is the size of a small apartment! The house is immaculate, and filled with unique and luxurious touches. The hosts provided generous amenities and snacks. A highlight of our stay was an incredible oceanfront breakfast with friends. Inside and outside, this place is just remarkable.

Nothing Short of Spectacular!
5/5 stars
The house was absolutely beautiful, with ocean views from every room. But the best parts about our stay were the small touches we found everywhere. Each bedroom suite had its own bathroom, with fluffy white towels and provided shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. The beds were very comfortable, with warm blankets available for cooler days. The kitchen was equipped with every variety of cooking implements, as well as a generous selection of plates and cups and silverware for use both indoors and out. There were also many different gathering spaces with comfortable couches, board games, etc., as well as an amazing office space on the second floor overlooking the ocean. It was obvious that the house was well maintained and very clean. The entire process was seamless and enjoyable, and we look forward to returning to stay again soon.
