Mansion Rental

Elegant both inside and out, the King Hooper Mansion offers a unique rental option for your next occasion.

The King Hooper Mansion is located in scenic Marblehead, MA, a town renowned as the yachting capital of America and birthplace of the American Navy. Just 17 miles north of Boston, Marblehead is home to one of the most majestic and beautiful harbors on the eastern seaboard, and is known as an art and cultural center.

The King Hooper Mansion has a colorful history; it is where Federalists gathered in the early 1700’s. It was first built in 1728 and enlarged to its present size in 1745. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is one of America’s outstanding architectural gems, situated in the heart of Marblehead’s historic district.

The Hooper Mansion is the home of the Marblehead Arts Association; the association has called this beautiful facility home since 1938. The six galleries in the Mansion include a graceful front parlor, a dining room, a small rear gallery, two second floor galleries and a third floor ballroom, which houses a Steinway Grand piano. Additionally, there are two kitchens and the original wine cellar, located on the lower level and opening onto the King Hooper Garden, which is meticulously maintained by the Cottage Gardeners of Marblehead.


Street parking is allowed according to the restrictions of the town of Marblehead and is usually available on the streets around us. Call the MAA to discuss parking options. Dogs are allowed but must be leashed at all times. We recommend you don’t bring them to your rental event. No smoking or lit candles are allowed inside the Mansion. Unfortunately, we are not handicapped accessible and some of our stairs can be challenging. Wheel chairs can get into the first floor galleries, but there are no restrooms on the first floor.
