Great place! Clean, charming room, nicely decorated including historic photos and books of the area. Generous continental breakfast located in the main room of the Inn - comfortable feel, and a nice conversation with the owner Gene. Great personable customer service, will definitely stay again.

We stayed in the Deck room for one night. Gene is a great host and is very accommodating with our late check in time. The entrance to the Deck Room is outdoor. As someone mentioned before, there are some tight corners to maneuver around to get to this entrance from the living room. But you can always enter the room... More

We spent a few days at Gene's lovely B&B last fall. We absolutely loved the quaint historical neighborhood and the home itself. A few people mentioned some of the quirks but we found those to be part of the character and charm of the place. Our stay in Marblehead was one of our favorite memories from our trip to New... More

Maybe it was the room location and shared bath, but I wouldn't rate our stay anywhere near the top of our experiences. Our room was small and clean, but adequate. The small shared bath was really small, but luckily no one had the adjoining room. We had to squeeze past the baby grand piano to go through the pantry hallway,... More

My wife and I spent five nights at Brimblecomb in Sept 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The b and b was cosy, our host was welcoming and made our visit very enjoyable with lots of information about Marblehead and area. Breakfast was Continental style with freshly baked muffins etc, very adequate. The b and b has three rooms two... More

We have been coming to Marblehead and the Brimblecomb Hill B&B since 2004. You will be staying in a house built in 1721. Your host, Gene, is a great guy and his B&B is comfortable and relaxing. Gene makes your visit feel like going to and old friends home for a visit. Our last visit was this week of Halloween.... More

My family rented all the rooms and we loved the house and Gene is a wonderful host. The location is wonderful and the rooms are very cute with a warm homelike feeling. I would stay here again if I ever get to go back.

We were looking for a place for just one night and found the Brimblecomb on line, Normally in the fall there is a 2 or 3 day minimum stay at most B&Bs but the reservations showed they had a room open for a Friday night only....so we went for it! Upon arriving we found an envelope with our name on... More

What a warm welcoming man gene, the owner is. The room (the Isaac) is as described and just a really interesting room. The whole building is a beauty to look at and spend time in. The location is ideal to walk around and explore old historic marblehead. All of this area is wonderful to be in. A great place to... More

The Brimblecomb Hill B & B is in the heart of Historic Marblehead. Just off its main commercial street, this Inn offers a quiet respite from the concentrated attractions of nearby Salem. The building joins dozens of other restored homes, shops and churches from the 18th and 19th Centuries, in an ideal waterfont setting. Walking this town is a wonderful... More
