This is my go to hotel in Marblehead. Located in the center of town, the hotel is well kept, cozy and fun. The staff is extremely accommodating and the breakfast included is top notch. In the summertime the pool is great. I especially love the cute hotel bar.

We have stayed at this lovely inn over Thanksgiving for the past two years. It is extremely convenient as we have family close by. They have a great location right in the village of Marblehead for a quick walk down historic streets to shops and cafes. They also include a hearty, hot and homemade breakfast every morning in their sunny... More

We stayed one night in late November to use up a Select Registry GC that we had been holding onto for too long. We are from Boston, but I realized I hadn't spent enought time in Marblehead after visiting. The inn is in the historic section of the town and if you are a lover of historic New England and...

We stayed one night at Marblehead in late October in a swing through Massachusetts, and picked Harbor Light based on reviews we've read. We were not disappointed with the room, the location, or the service. It's an old house in a section of town full of old pre-revolutionary war buildings, and has the character you'd expect from that kind of... More

We stayed at the Inn in October, and had a super stay. The staff were helpful and professional. Breakfast was good and the overall atmosphere was very enjoyable. The room was warm and inviting and the bed very comfortable. Would highly recommend.

Our 2 night stay at the Harbor Light Inn in Marblehead was very good. The accommodations and service was excellent and included a delicious daily breakfast. The place was very nice and in the middle of town, so easy to walk to local buildings. Parking in the rear down the hill was nice. Only downside was the radiator heat which... More

This wonderful place (the Inn and the town) was beyond our expectations. The Inn is gorgeous and elegant yet peaceful and relaxing. The décor is gorgeous, the Inn is extremely well maintained and managed, the rooms are super clean, and the service is excellent. The breakfasts are delicious but don't expect the traditional bacon & eggs in this historic place.... More

This was our third time at the Inn and we were just as pleased as every time before. It is a charming historic place to stay with fantastic breakfast options. If you are looking for an elegant romantic place to go I would highly recommend this inn in this beautiful area of the state.

Our stay at the Harbor Light Inn was beyond magnificent. Our room was not only beautiful, it was spotlessly clean. The staff was wonderful, professional, courteous and helpful which made our stay a dream come true. Breakfast at the Inn so delicious, not like any other hotel or B&B. The Inn is located in the middle of a sailing port... More
