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 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

I would like to thank the staff, in particular, Mary, for making our experience at the Inn memorable! We stayed 1 nite this past weekend to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and she went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. We had a fantastic time watching the Patriots play (and win!!) in the Tavern and... More

We just visited the Harbor Light Inn for our third time. We love the location, staff, food, rooms and mini tavern for a night cap (or two!). It was also impeccably decorated for Christmas - which was a special treat for this season. We will be back.

This inn lived up to its advertising as one of USA's most romantic inns. It was clean and nicely decorated with colonial-era items; all the fireplaces were roaring morning, noon, and night, and it was very cozy. The staff were extremely helpful and got us a table at the busiest restaurant in town on a moment's notice and the little... More

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 always appreciate getting feed back about the Inn. All of our beds are Queen or King size. I am not sure what size you normally sleep on at home. Perhaps next Thanksgiving you may want to choose one of the king bedrooms. Thank you for taking the time to write a review about the Inn. We look forward to... 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
