We stayed for three nights with Susan as our hostess. She was so hospitable and helpful Breakfasts were delicious, served on the patio or dining room. Marblehead was central to our vacation destinations, since it is only a few minutes from Salem, half an hour to Gloucester, etc. My only suggestion would be if you are travelling when it is... More

We were looking for a B&B between Boston & Salem. Found this place in Marblehead and we could not have been happier. Everything was in walking distance. The town and the people living there were some of the friendliest we have ever encountered. The hostess (Susan) made us feel like we were family. Boston & Salem were both short drives... More

We were visiting New England on a trip from the UK. We would not normally book ‘bed and breakfast’ accommodation in a private house as we prefer self-catering accommodation. However, this was not really practical for our last three nights in the US. We were not sure whether or not we would enjoy staying in the more intimate surrounds of... More

We recently stayed at Harborside House on our trip to Massachusetts from California. The B&B is located in an ideal spot, a short walk from a beautiful center of town with several quaint shops and restaurants. The house is in a very quiet location, a few yards from the ocean. The house is decorated in very good taste and Susan... More

This is a beautiful home hosted by Susan, a very elegant lady, those style is repeated in a very elegantly decorated and furnished b&b. It is situated on the road right behind the waterfront, close to all the good restaurants and shops. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms a decent size and the breakfasts are healthy with home baking... More

Had a great time at Harborside House. Susan Livingston makes you feel very welcome. She is very gracious, accommodating, and allows you to come and go as you please. The breakfasts consist of homemade quick breads like banana bread to accompany a delightful choice of butters and jams, cereals, bagels, assortment of bread, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit cup, coffee, tea,...

We booked a night for a friend who was in town to attend a memorial service for a family member. She found the suite delightful and the hospitality very warm. This was a good experience she stated. This was a good value

This bed and breakfast blew us away! Marblehead is truly a work of art with breathtaking views and flawlessly maintained properties and gardens. I booked a two night visit at this B&B not only for relaxation but also for a very special wedding proposal. The hostess, Susan, was warm, gracious and extremely down to earth. She went above and beyond... More
