About Cheryl and David Patten
We are natives of Massachusetts and New York - sports team allegiance not withstanding- and lived for nearly 30 years in the D.C. metro region. We chose to move to Marblehead to enjoy all that this lovely town has to offer. It is our pleasure to welcome guests visiting the area.
Cheryl and David Patten purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Cheryl and David Patten chose Marblehead
Our house was originally constructed in 1763 to serve as the home and shop for a well know cabinet maker in his day. Later, in 1795, the home was purchased by a sea captain who provided for his family during the heyday of Marblehead's cod fishing industry. We purchased the home with the intent to maintain this piece of American history and to share it with visitors to the area. We embarked on a series of renovations, starting with the apartment, and continue to make improvements to the home so that it continues to shine for another 250+ years.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is a few short steps up from the street and is a fully private unit. We reside in rest of the house above and are on hand to answer any questions. It has been completely updated and features all the modern amenities to make your stay comfortable while retaining the distinctive charm of its colonial roots. From our location, you can walk everywhere in Marblehead and we are a short drive to Salem, Rockport and Glouster. Boston is accessible via car, commuter train, seasonal ferry (Salem) or Metro (Revere).

Wonderful 2 months
A very charming apartment located in a fantastic location.
Mid-winter coastal getaway
Easy to walk to local restaurants and main street. Very charming historic area to visit, with Salam just a short drive away. The rental was clean and cozy with tasteful furnishings. Cheryl and David welcomed us and offered good suggestions for area eateries and attractions. Very happy we chose this rental and would come again.
Very Charming and quaint
We had a great visit and plan to return again during our next trip to the area. Very nice hosts and a perfect little get away for our family.
Cozy and Quaint
Cheryl and David's Homeaway is a perfect getaway for two. The apartment is the perfect size, with updated appliances and is spotless. The gas fire place was another nice amenity that we were able to use (our trip was in November). You and whomever you're with are given privacy throughout your stay as well.
The apartment itself is situated right down the street from the Main Street in Marblehead so it is very easy to just stroll over and enjoy the shops and food in town. It is also only about a 10-15min drive to Salem and only about 45 minutes to Boston.
All in all Cheryl and David's Homeway fits in perfect with the quaint and historic theme of the area. If you are looking for a nice, clean and cozy stay, I would definitely recommend staying here. (We are already planning our next trip).
The accommodations were just as advertised. Hosts were welcoming and accessible. We will come back next trip to Marblehead!
Great location! Marblehead is a beautiful town to stay in. Close to Boston, Salem and Rockport.
This was a great place to stay. We wanted the old town feel and that is what we got. We would stay here again. The owners were very nice and helpful. Bring your walking shoes. You will want to walk to restaurants and shopping in Marblehead. Lots to see and do in the area. Would recommend Salem, Rockport, and Winter island.
