My husband and I recently travelled to MASS. from Ontario, Canada on a last minute honeymoon. The highlight of our trip was going to be our stay in Salem over the weekend leading up to Halloween. However, the entire city was booked solid! Luckily, the Harbour Light Inn in Marblehead, a very short and scenic drive from Salem, had a last minute vacancy and put us up in a fantastic room.
The staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and eager to show off the best Marblehead has to offer. The Inn is very welcoming, with fireplaces to greet you in two sitting rooms and the dining room. Our room (22) was fit with a double jaccuzzi tub and a log burning fireplace, which they lit for us. The Inn also includes a "nook" fit with a wet bar and a friendly bartender to serve up some drinks. The bar was a great place to come for a night cap and meet other guests. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful and is served in the very cute dining room that looks out onto the pool area. Good coffee too!
My husband and I later reflected that we wish we had known of this place before stopping in Salem and Boston to make this is home - base, doing day trips along the MASS coast.
Driving times, with decent traffic:
Salem - 15 mins
Boston - up to an hour
Plymouth - took us 2 hours with insane traffic in the Boston area
We'd love to come back, and hope to bring some friends along with us. Thank you!
