My husband and I stayed for two nights- for our anniversary. It was low key and quiet and so restful! The room was very attractive and everything we needed was right there! Home made baked goods were plentiful . This quiet place was a perfect getaway and yet we were close to many Marblehead sights as well as the Peabody...

e stayed at the Arbor house for a few days in August. Dave and Jen made our stay really pleasant and were really helpful, from the beginning when we arrived with a broken shock and they recommended the best garage ever in Salem (the best mechanic-French movie buff in the world!) to the end when our car refused to start...guess...

My wife and I stayed at Arbor House, after flying into Boston Logan from the UK. It is only a short drive to Marblehead from the airport, and we found Arbor House a perfect place to relax and recover. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and has all the little luxuries you need. Jen greeted us and showed us around when...

A warm, cozy, quiet and very private respite from the busier Salem historic areas. The place is loaded with amenities such as home-made, gluten free treats made fresh daily and unobtrusively delivered to the room by the friendly and funny hostess, Jen, that can be enjoyed in the private, wooded, dedicated patio area that comes with the room There are...

Marblehead is a delight and Arbor House a great place to stay to explore the area. We stayed there in September following a wedding in Martha's Vineyard. We'd heard so many things about Martha's Vineyard and it by no means lived up to its reputation. Marblehead on the other hand was totally unknown to us and a wonderful surprise. It's...

I stayed here for one night and I would return for the the following reasons: - Great hosts - Comfortable bed - Delicious treats (my favorites were the fresh fruit and yogurt, fresh juices, herb cheese and crackers) - Private garden patio - Very safe, peaceful, and relaxing environment - Private off-street parking space - Beautiful community and close to...

We had a short but wonderful stay with Dave and Jennifer, they instantly made us feel right at home. Dave took the time to suggest some places we might want to visit as well as pointing out several local restaurants. The room was very cozy and lacked for nothing. The food prepared by Jennifer was fabulous, the sweet treats she...

Wholeheartedly agree with the other positive reviews. Our stay was terrific. The Arbor House is tucked into a beachside residential neighborhood with narrow, winding roads, closely packed houses, and incredible views. Truly felt like a getaway despite being not far from Boston. The room was excellent, and we were very well cared for. Homemade treats were a pleasant surprise. David...

I have never had such a warm and comfortable stay in a luxurious room so well thought out to accomodate and anticipate my needs. There was wonderful food: a choice of freshly baked food by Jennifer, one of the owners, fruit, cheese, bread, cereals and an assortment of beverages (much of this organic) in a small refrigerator in addition to...

This is a rare find--quiet, understated, clean, comfortable, private--and just steps from the ocean. What makes Arbor House really special is Jennfifer and Dave's attention to all the details of good hospitality, such as dimmable reading lamps on each side of the bed, premium TV movie channels, homemade gourmet organic food and treats, private garden right outside, and original art...
