We spent a delightful two nights in Marblehead and struck lucky in finding Haborside House.
Susan is a total professional in her approach to B&B and thought of everything even before we knew we needed it! Everything is done to the highest standard and the warm welcome and good company just added to it all. A great place to stay.

My cousin and I stayed in this marvelous B & B in mid-September. Susan is a wonderful hostess full of ideas for your stay. The water view is lovely and you can experience sunset over the harbor and if lucky enough (as we were) a full moon rising at the same time. The location was perfect and we walked to dinner both nights we were there. Loved the shops. Beds were comfy and had the prettiest linens. Breakfast was great. Will go back if travelling this way again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the front room with two singles which was perfect for us and afforded us a great harbor...

Ideally located close to harbor, restaurants and interesting shops. House is well maintained, clean and very comfortable. I felt very much at home and at ease. Susan (owner) is very personable and knowledgeable about the area. She serves a very nice continental breakfast. Definately a place to go back to.

As soon as I got there- I kicked off my shoes and settled in to our lovely room with view of the harbor in Marblehead. Susan our hostess made wonderful breads for breakfast, it was cozy (not small) and welcoming. Perfect location to walk around town, no car needed. Plenty to do and see close by. I don't have a lot of time to relax in my life, but at harborside, it came easy- I highly recommend you visit and stay with Susan and John and this lovely Inn.

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms, the one we had facing the harbor has twin beds but is larger. The other room...

Green Features: Hmmmm. Let's see - well the water was good to drink so no bottles. We did recycle.

Our stay at Harborside House could not have been a more pleasurable experience.the house is just lovely and the Hostess Susan made us feel at home immediately , the location is excellent with a beautiful view of the harbor and within walking distance of historic marblehead and the shopping district. Susan starts your day with a first class continental breakfast , and she gave us great tips as what to see and a map of where to go. she also told us of a couple great resturants to try. We could not be more pleased with Harborside House and what a wonderful hostess Susan is. John and Jackie R.

What a GREAT B&B. What I really liked was that there was a room with two twin beds for those travelling with friends. Susan was warm and welcoming and a wealth of knowledge. Breakfast was not only delicious, but presented beautifully! Loved the side porch with the view of the harbor. Within walking distance to restaurants, stores, and historic sites. While there try Maddies for a GREAT Bloody Mary. Susan...hope to see you next year!

Harborside House is a small and quaint B&B close to everything in gorgeous Marblehead. The location is prime to walking everywhere and the views of the harbor breathtaking. The hostess, Susan, has an eye for detail and was the most gracious hostess I've ever encountered. She has a beautiful home that she has opened up to guest and takes enormous care to accommodate your every need. She makes a stunning breakfast to begin your day and has plenty of advice and comments to make your stay more enjoyable. The rooms do share a bathroom but that was never a problem and we felt so comfortable and at home it was like staying with a good friend! I would HIGHLY recommend this fabulous B&B and look forward to returning again! Thank you Susan for a lovely stay!!...(and lending me your bracelet to match my evening attire) Until we meet again! Susan n Tom

Room Tip: Either room is perfect. The front room does have a view of the harbor but two single beds. The back...
