This B&B was perfect. Charming, spotless, and full of character. Gene was a wonderful host! Great location, quiet and peaceful quaint fishing village, close to the ocean, Salem and Boston. We couldn't have asked for better! Highly recommended...

This lovely old wooden house is full of character and is set in a central location in Marblehead which is just the spot to explore the local area and Boston. The room was clean and bed comfortable, and Gene our host could not do enough for us and set a great breakfast. Parking was easy, and good restaurants and the... More

Brimblecomb Hill B&B is in a great location in Marblehead, walking distance to everything you'd want to see in the area. Parking is provided. The continental breakfast has cereal, muffins/pastry, toast, milk, juice, coffee, and fruit. Our room had a window A/C unit which was very much appreciated as we visited during hot weather. There is a lot of reading... More

My daughter and I stayed in the Deck Room for a couple of nights and loved it. The private entrance was nice. Parking was no problem. Gene was such a great host and gave us lots of information to help us on our ancestral roots search. The neighborhood is beautiful and so historic. We loved our stay and would definitely... More

Great place! Clean, charming room, nicely decorated including historic photos and books of the area. Generous continental breakfast located in the main room of the Inn - comfortable feel, and a nice conversation with the owner Gene. Great personable customer service, will definitely stay again.

We stayed in the Deck room for one night. Gene is a great host and is very accommodating with our late check in time. The entrance to the Deck Room is outdoor. As someone mentioned before, there are some tight corners to maneuver around to get to this entrance from the living room. But you can always enter the room... More

We spent a few days at Gene's lovely B&B last fall. We absolutely loved the quaint historical neighborhood and the home itself. A few people mentioned some of the quirks but we found those to be part of the character and charm of the place. Our stay in Marblehead was one of our favorite memories from our trip to New... More

Maybe it was the room location and shared bath, but I wouldn't rate our stay anywhere near the top of our experiences. Our room was small and clean, but adequate. The small shared bath was really small, but luckily no one had the adjoining room. We had to squeeze past the baby grand piano to go through the pantry hallway,... More
