The neighborhood is a downtown and friendly with the oldest operating fish house located just a few doors away where you can watch the lobstermen come in with their daily catch. The fish house is on the national register of historic buildings. We are also lucky to have an entire district in town designed by the famous landscape architect Frederick Olmstead, and one can walk everywhere imcluding the library, post office , farmers market , beauty parlor , convenience stores , shopping and dining . Very safe historic town . Lots of movies filmed here such as Manchester by the sea and grownups and ted .

Getting around

15 min walk to train . 2 minute walk to bus line . Both go to boston and local communities. Easy drive or Uber to Salem and Marblehead for tons of additional sightseeing opportunities such as museums , whale watches , fishing , historic sights , garden tours etc. We are only an hours drive from Beautiful Maine , NH, Vermont and Connecticut and a two hour drive from Vermont and NY State. We are happy to make recommendations and reservations if you let us know your interests to make it an unforgettable experience for you.

Feedback

  • Our stay in Swampscott was just wonderful. Michelle is extremely welcoming, kind and accommodating. She treated us as her dearest friends. The house was beautiful and immaculate. Everything for comfortable living is present - and more! Michelle’s house is RIGHT ON THE OCEAN (!), with gorgeous, ever-changing views to enchant. We actually spent a lot of time in the backyard, mesmerized by the sea. Kayaks and SUPs were available for our use. Kayaking up the coast was definitely a highlight of the trip. Michelle shares so much local insider knowledge and advice: The best restaurants for clam chowder, breakfast, lobster, where to shop, the fun activities and places to explore, what activities make sense to chain together etc. as well as tips and tricks. We stayed 10 days, yet felt like we just scratched the surface of what the area offers. I could gush further - but you get the idea. I most definitely recommend exchanging with Michelle and Marc in Swampscott!
  • Liz. so nice of you to leave that message. We hope you will return to do some more exploring! Thank you to you, Nan and Ava for being amazing!

  • Michelle’s home is absolutely beautiful, with amazing views, comfortable beds and everything immaculate. The photos are great, but they do not do this lovely home justice. We stayed over Christmas and hosted dinner for my daughter and her family who live nearby. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, so if you like to cook you will be in heaven - and sea views while you work! We loved sitting in the sunroom watching the water and city lights. The bed was so comfortable - even for my husband who is 6’4”. Everything has been completely renovated recently and done with great thought and taste. You are within a 15 minute drive of quintessential New England historic towns, beaches and other sites — and a short drive into Boston.The best part was we were able to have dinner with Michelle and Marc and make new friends - they are so warm and welcoming. We hope to exchange again with them and look forward to having them at our home in a few months.
  • Thank you so much Stephanie and Scott! You are wonderful to know and we are still glowing from our time in Santa Rosa. You are perfect guests and hosts!! And I will never forget coming home to Scott adjusting/ fixing my kitchen cabinet for us-that was the cherry on top!

  • What a beautiful home Michelle has! It is in such a cute area of northern Massachusetts where we were able to enjoy the downtown area, Marblehead and Salem. And the views from her home of the water (and Boston in the distance) are gorgeous She was very helpful in giving us ideas of things to do as well and even left a thoughtful welcome gift to the area. If you are looking for a peaceful, scenic stay in a historic area I highly recommend. And to top it off Michelle and Marc are just fantastic people!!
  • Thanks so much for the feedback, Erin. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to Swampscott . We have loved getting to know you and we hope you will plan to return again anytime! Michelle and Marc
