My stay at Harborside House was an absolute delight. I have always enjoyed the B&B experience, and the Harborside is the perfect example - from the graciousness of my host, the delicious breakfast, and the camaraderie of the other guests - not to mention my lovely room - all added up to a wonderful visit. With any luck, I shall... More

In a beautiful house overlooking Marblehead harbor, Susan and her husband give to the visitors a very friendly, helpful and warm welcome. You feel like at home ! Our room with sea view was comfortable, with 2 separate beds and a shared bathroom, and the breakfast was delicious.

We tried to get accommodation here when already in Marblehead. There was a 'no vacancy' sign but we called anyway. The lovely owner was really helpful and directed us to another guest house. We were so impressed by her kindness. She mentioned that the other place had only opened recently and could have vacancies and supplied their telephone number. Judith... More

My children and I spent one night at the Harborside House in Marblehead, MA, as part of a whirlwind "tour" of New England. I lived in Marblehead for several years as a young girl and wanted my children to experience the loveliness of Old Town. Susan Livingston, the innkeeper, did not disappoint. The inn is beautifully appointed - gorgeous rooms... More

Susan provides a home away from home at her Harborside House in Marblehead, MA. The view is fabulous and the hospitality unsurpassed without being the least bit pretentious. Daily breakfast with yummy homemade breads is a plus. It is always our first choice when visiting Marblehead.

First I want to say our hostess Susan is such a lovely lady. She provided countless ideas to make our trip relaxing and productive. The main goal to our trip was to visit a couple of Colleges for our daughter within the Boston area, but also as a family vacation as well. She gave us great suggestions to visit and... More

What a find! This must be the best bed and breakfast we have stayed in and we have stayed in quite a lot, home and away. The house is lovely and Susan really has thought of everything to make your stay memorable. Susan very kindly took us to Marblehead Neck in her car as my wife had hurt her back... More

If you're looking for a great Bed & Breakfast Inn for a getaway in a great part of MA, then Harborside is the place. The rooms are extremely clean, the prices are very competitive, the breakfast is great, and Susan is a perfect hostess. Susan is there if you need her, but she does not make a pest out of... More
