Absolutely perfect in every way...accommodations, location on the island, views, wonderful staff, fresh breakfast. We will return again and again. The island is an amazing sanctuary for wildlife, the beaches are perfect, the forest enchanting - we love everything about the island and the Marsh Harbour Inn! Thank you Kathy and Jo! You are the best!

What a lovely inn! We stayed two nights and on the way back we were already planning our next trip. Kathy is incredible, helpful, and very knowledgeable of the area. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable.

The Marsh Harbour is a wonderful place for your first time to BHI or fifteenth! My wife and I used a Groupon to stay a couple nights during the week. As soon as we arrived the manager Kathy welcomed us with open arms, offered to carry our bags upstairs to the gorgeous room 6 and even allowed us to store... More

To say the Marsh Harbour Inn exceeded our expectations is an understatement! We arrived on the island on a Sunday around 9:00pm. Apparently, on Sundays most restaurants close around 9:00pm. We were starved when we arrived to the Marsh Harbour Inn and feared that we would have to go to bed without food. Then Jo, the innkeeper, came to our... More

This was our 1st time to bhi and the marsh harbor inn. The MHI was such a nice place to stay. Convenient to the ferry and dining places. Our room, 8, was very comfortable with a balcony over looking the marina. The staff were friendly, especially jo and Emily. We'd go back. The island is tropical. Ferry is fun.

We were given a weekend stay for a wedding present. What a wonderful relaxing time. One is able to make themselves at home in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Room very nice and bed was super comfortable. Jo was a great hostess and provided all we needed. Would recommend !

We didn't know what to expect but it exceeded our expectations. The property is conveniently located on the harbor near the ferry and walking distance to a few restaurants. We were surprised to find a Golf Cart comes with the room which is a money saver. The room, room #3, was very spacious and clean with a Queen sleeping area,... More

Did a Groupon special and was not disappointed. The MHI is not far from the ferry and the tram service is great. Be sure to reserve the tram for arrival and departure. MHI provided a golf cart which is a huge money-saver. We zipped around the island, enjoying the beautiful wildlife and gorgeous homes. Not being able to have a... More

My husband and I spend 4 days/3nights at the Inn. The weather was cold and blustery, but the Inn was delightful and most relaxing. We stayed in a corner room, #4, on the second floor. It was a corner unit with lots of light and nice views. The staff was courteous. The golf cart was a fun zippy ride around... More

Site did not allow us to search an available period to visit. I had to enter a date and hope. Other resort properties realize a vacationer has a flexible schedule and can select a three to five day period that the property has open. Oh well, may next year. Going to Wilmington / Wrightsville instead.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You wake up in the morning...and step onto your private deck where sailboats rock gently in the marina. Beyond, you see a wide stretch of blue ocean, and to the side a creek winding through serene marshland. Surrounding the harbour are homes, both quaint and majestic—a scene that has inspired this place to be called "the Nantucket of the South." The Marsh Harbour is a boutique Inn, reminiscent of a grand coastal manor estate, overlooking the Harbour on Bald Head Island. Accommodations include nine rooms and four spectacular suites. A breakfast buffet is served daily in the dining room and a wine and cheese reception is hosted on the weekends. Enjoy sweeping views of the Marina, Atlantic Ocean and the marshes from every room. Golf cart (the only island transportation), breakfast, daily housekeeping is included in your rate. We are the only hotel facility on Bald Head Island. Suites are also available for fractional purchase, offering 4 weeks per year usage. ... more   less
