We enjoyed it so much the second night we stayed in by the fire and ordered pizza! The staff was friendly and helpful and the full breakfast was... More

My wife and I stayed at this Inn for a weekend get away without the kids. I had my reservations because March can be cold and raw on the North Shore of Mass. We had a great time and this Inn was perfect even with one stormy day. We had room 24 with a fireplace and it was clean, warm... More

The term, "hidden jewel" is very overused and since I believe this gem of a B&B is not so hidden anymore it would require more creativity than I have for an adequate way to describe what was one of our best travel experiences ever! First, I'm not even sure B&B is a fair description since the look and the feel... More

Nice 2-night stay-package included $50 restaurant certificate ($20-30 savings).The receptionist was very helpful with restaurants and things to see. A different hostess equally helpful on day 2. Took care of dinner reservations too. The suite (Rm 25) was nice-on second floor, and part of an addition so it was modern vs. old New England quaint. Quiet at back of house,... More

I cannot write enough wonderful things about our visit to Marblehead and the Harbor Light Inn. Marblehead itself is such an idyllic town. The people we encountered were pleasant and friendly. The architectural sights and the views of the harbor are lovely. As for the inn, the room (room #5) was spacious, clean, and quiet. The breakfast was tasty, and... More

Spent the weekend. Rooms and suite were lovely and clean. Keep in mind that it's an older location, and if something breaks in the room, it may not be corrected immediately. Food was good, and staff friendly.

It is so nice that you enjoy returning to our beautiful Inn and appreciate our friendly staff and antique home. We're sorry to hear that you were chilly but happy that you managed to bundle up.
