I can't even begin to tell you how amazing our stay was! My mom and I stayed here over the summer for a few nights and it was absolutely breathtaking. They were so kind and accomodating. As soon as we got there, we were greeted with friendly people who told us about the area, offered some good places to visit...

Management response:

Sarah, what a lovely review and please know how much we enjoyed meeting you and your mom! It's always a pleasure to hear that our guests enjoyed the Sweet and their time in Marblehead. We do hope you'll come back and stay with us again. And soon! Francie and Bob

As I am looking for ideas for my next trip, I realized that I forgot to come here and review our last trip to Chestnut Sweet. As perfect as our first visit was, this visit was just as perfect. There's really no other word to describe this beautiful vacation home. It truly feels like a home away from home, comfortable...

Management response:

Cynthia, this was lovely! We so enjoyed having you with us and we're so glad you enjoyed the Sweet. Now we'll look forward to seeing you again soon, and often! Thank you again ... Francie King

This is a very nice cottage on a quiet Marblehead street! Upon our arrival, Francie welcomed us and gave us a quick walk thru. She really thought of everything one might need while staying at the Sweet. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and decor of the entire cottage. If we had questions, Francie was just a text away...

Management response:

Barbara, thank you for such kind words about the Sweet. We really enjoyed having you and Richard with us, and despite the weather, it sounded like you enjoyed yourselves. DO come back soon? Franci
