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

Our room is delightful with fireplace for winter and is beautifully appointed. It also has wi-fi for our business needs. The staff are all friendly and willing to help with any question. They have a restaurant which is one-half block down from the Inn. They also have a bar inside the inn. Provided during the day are a variety of... 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

My husband and I were moving to Marblehead, and wanted to spend our first night before the closing in the town. Harbor Light Inn staff were amazing. Margie and Dominic (may have spelling wrong) were the best welcome into town we could want. They gave us the best recommendations on where to eat, and what to do when we moved... More

Flight at Logan cancelled with no hotel availability in Boston. Found HLI through online search. I was definitely in a pinch for a place to rest my head for the evening and the fine folks at the HLI came through for me in a big way. They made sure I felt at home. The room was clean comfy and classy.... More

We were a party of two on a weekend getaway this past weekend and are so delighted that we chose to stay at Harbor Light Inn. The room was lovely...four poster bed, and an (admittedly unused but charming) fireplace lent just the right touch of romance without being sappy. The staff was very accommodating to our requests for things like...keeping... More
