My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Harbor Light Inn August 24 to August 26 fir a short getaway. As soon as we arrived we met Cassandra who is the manager of the Inn. She was warm and very friendly and showed us to our room (#27). Loved this room! Very well decorated with a wonderful... More

We stayed last Thursday night before heading to Boston airport, having travelled down the coast of Maine. A beautifully presented, charming Inn, full of character yet with all the modern amenities complete with a lovely pool area to the rear. Accommodation isn't cheap, however compared to other hotels we stayed in along our way, the Harbor Light Inn was better... More

This is cute inn, rooms are nice , people are friendly. Beautiful pool in a very nice yard. Very cute! But if you have any disabilities this is not the place for you. Old stairways, no handicap parking. There are two spaces that could be used for ADA but somehow they are reserved for a manager and someone else. Don't... More

We do owe you a big apology! You unfortunately got misinformation by one of our new employees regarding handicapped parking. The parking spot by our back entrance marked "Reserved" is for unloading luggage and for handicapped parking when needed. We do try to cater to everyone's needs and particularly people who need help due to disabilities, age, or the like.... More

Really well managed inn in the center of historic Marblehead. Warm, knowledgeable staff. Tiny tavern, tiny swimming pool, thoughtful room details. A quiet oasis surprisingly close to Boston and Logan Airport

Having a (very) rare whole week away with my husband and no kids, my husband researched thoroughly and found this gem of a town and hotel. We had a top floor room with beams and views down the quaint main street. Breakfast was delicious, and even though we had to miss one due to an early start for whale watching,... More

Travelling to Boston is a treat and one does not think of going beyond the immediate neighberhood such as Cambridge, Brookline, or Newton. But this traveller recommends that one should take at least one day off to head to Marbelhead. It is glorious New England town (hamlet). With the very highesr recommendation spend the night at Harbour Light Inn. The... More

We go to Marblehead every year, but this was our first time at the Harbor Light Inn. It won't be our last! Our room was amazing - beautiful ceiling with wood beams and a private deck for sunning during the day and enjoying a glass of wine in the evening. The staff was welcoming and helpful. It would be impossible... More
