The marble in the shower and floor is Rojo Coralito, which provides a passion of its own. Guests are greeted by an expansive porch on a Cape with a long covered entry. This is a house that has a  strong impact on guests and visitors, not because of its size but because of the almost magical blend of architecture and detail. As one guest wrote:" If God is in the details, there's a little bit of heaven for your guests here."

Guests can listen to a quiet waterfall and watch the koi swim through beds of water lilies and iris. The landscape is distinguished by natural rock ledge, stonewalls, large oak trees and a 50’ reflective pond. Fox Pond is much more than a B&B, it can be a retreat and a sanctuary if you are open to the natural beauty and stillness in the gardens.
In Gardening and Deck Design, Maureen FitzPatrick writes:" The result is a landscape that defies the boundaries between man-made and natural worlds." Guests will find over 1,300sf of decks and this large patio surrounded by gardens and rock ledge. There is a path from the property to the ocean, which can be walked in five minutes. Hiking and biking trails are accessible providing a comfortable 30 minute walk or 10 minute bike ride to Marblehead center.
