Gas House Beach is located on Gas House Lane off Orne Street in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Named after the gas generating plant that had been there over 100 years ago, Gas House Beach is a small residential beach for Marblehead residents. This beach may not be the best for relaxing due to the abundance of seaweed; however, it is great for kayaking and paddle boarding with the calm water.
