My wife and I just returned to California from the Marblehead Inn. What a lovely stay, lovely innkeepers, very comfortable room and gathering space, great location for leafing and long walks, and wonderful people that we met along this journey. Our room #12 was clean, inviting, decorated nicely, and spacious. We highly recommend the Marblehead Inn, particularly because of Karlene and her husband. Great hosts!

Our trip to Salem gave us the opportunity to visit the beautiful community of Marblehead. Our daily walks allowed us to see the deep marine history and the authenticity of the homes. It is a beautiful area. The Marblehead Inn is convenient to both the Marblehead shore and Salem. Our stay was extremely pleasant. Our suite was spacious, extremely clean and quiet. The soft beds offered a great night's sleep. The owner's are good, genuine people. Thank you for the hospitality.

My boyfriend and I loved staying at the Marblehead Inn. We weren't able to get any reservations in Salem because we booked our trip a little late, but we were lucky to stay in the nearby town of Marblehead. The town is literally a 5-minute drive from Salem, and it's no problem to get cab service to and from.

The innkeepers were extremely friendly and welcoming. We didn't get up early enough to enjoy the complimentary breakfast (before 9:30am), but they kept coffee out till late morning and they had jars full of goodies (snacks, cookies, candy) left out around the clock, which we happily helped ourselves to.

Our room was on the first floor and was really big for 2 people. We had a king-sized bed, a separate living room with a kitchen, fireplace and TV. And all rooms had a nice, green view of the outside.

My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer :)

They were perfectly accommodating of me, my husband, and our three-year-old daughter. Unfortunately we were only there for one night but should we ever get back up to Massachusetts, we will stay at The Marblehead Inn for sure!!!

We found the handicapped suite to be just perfect. Karleen and John were welcoming and concerned for our comfort. We will return to this property on our next trip to Marblehead. We found the property lovely and clean with excellent parking.

We love the large suite we stayed in. Wonderful furnishings and very clean. The hosts Karlene and John are very warm but not obtrusive. We highly recommend the Marblehead Inn
The hosts are very knowledgeable about the area and have many recommendations of places to visit. In particular we asked for and we received many maps to places we were seeking

We were able to get a last minute booking at Marblehead Inn and had a lovely stay in this quaint Victorian House. The rooms were large enough and comfortable, bathrooms clean, friendly staff on check in. The breakfast in the morning was lovely although not cooked, and the owners chatted to us throughout breakfast to give us some tips on the local area which was great. We would recommend staying here.
