My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Harbor Light Inn from, February 20th to 22th 2015. Cassandra, the manager, was very accommodating, professional while still being warm and welcoming. They have delicious New England food on the menu which my husband ate in the cutest and smallest bar I have ever encountered. The room was well... More

My husband and I were desperate to get away from our snow blower for a few nights, and Mother Nature provided the storm free weekend for our escape. We took a chance on this inn, and went by the photos on their website to choose our room. We got everything we wanted, from privacy, to the king bed, to the... More

Cassandra the Inn Manager was outstanding, the best service I have ever received anywhere and I have stay in over fourteen countries and countless inns. The room was amazing, clean, comfortable, classic yet modern, well decorated, perfect even had a wood burning fireplace. The breakfast was great, Cassandra even personally made gluten-free toast. Who could ask for anything more. I... More

Absolutely loved our stay at the Harbor Light Inn! The staff members were wonderful and the atmosphere was so cozy. We were able to walk downtown within minutes to nice restaurants and shops. We stayed during the winter, and cannot wait to come back in the summertime. Perfect weekend getaway spot, I highly recommend.

We go to great lengths to ensure our inn provides a peaceful and cozy retreat for our guests in the winter, especially after braving frigid temperatures and shoveling all season.

I stayed at the Harbor Light Inn back in November with an old friend who was visiting from the West Coast. We wanted to try a new place to visit and I thought of Marblehead. We had a wonderful time. The Inn is cozy and welcoming. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The bar was a great little hideaway. We... More

Friendly & helpful staff, spacious rooms, cozy atmosphere - and a very tasty breakfast !! We had a great evening and will definitely be back! It may be a good idea to leave some background music on through the night as the heat that comes through the radiator is pretty noisy- we didn't notice it though until my husband shut... More

We appreciate you recommending the Harbor Light Inn, thank you very much! I was a little concerned about the noise from the heat so I did a room check and found that we just had to adjust the radiator. Not all of our rooms have steam radiators and if you are ever disturbed again please let us know so we... More

We were meeting friends on the North Shore and decided to book a room at this Inn that had been recommended by a friend. Loved it. It's an antique but not stuffy. Fireplaces were ablaze, there was parking out back (in a town known for parking issues) and the free breakfast the next morning was lovely. The tiny bar is... More
