I was so exhausted after the last Boston Marathon that I was looking for a quiet place to rest after the race. The Marblehead Inn was a perfect place to stay near Salem and Gloucester. We had a tremendous welcoming upon our arrival and all support to help us find good places to visit or restaurants. Don't miss the breakfast... More

I stayed for a week and wish I could have stayed more. My hosts were very supportive and kind. They even offered for me to join them for dinner!

Our family visited the Marblehead Inn over Easter weekend this year. We are 15 in all including teens to a 20 month old. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating. Our rooms were very comfortable. We felt welcome and very much at home. We would go back without hesitation.

I think our expectations were miss set a little as this was listed in the B&B/Inn section (we were thinking it would be more B&B than Inn). It is safe to say this is more of an Inn than B&B. Rooms were clean and spacious. Staff was nice and attentive. Our bed could have been upgraded and the breakfast was... More

Thank you for your review and for complimenting the staff and rooms. I'm sorry the inn wasn't what you were expecting. You're right - it is more an inn, than a B&B. And, while we do offer a large variety of breakfast items - coffee, teas, hot chocolate, juice, rice milk, 4 cold cereals, regular and gluten free oatmeal, regular,... More

Karlene and John were incredible, from the moment we got there they were ready to help with our every need. Our room was very nicely appointed. We had a very quiet suite on the third floor which was spacious and delightful. Wouldn't have changed a thing, and we're pretty particular :) The continental breakfast buffet even had gluten free options... More

Although my 11 day stay was predicated by a death in the family, the Marblehead Inn and Innkeepers Karlene & John gave me a much needed respite. They were also more than flexible in accommodating other members of my family during this difficult time. My suite was spacious, clean and relaxing. I took advantage of the Jacuzzi tub on several...

I stayed at the inn while doing an extensive renovation of my home and the inn was truly a home away from home for me. The building is a beautiful historic house, nicely decorated and very welcoming. What was truly outstanding, however, was the warmth and level of personal care shown to me by the innkeepers. Karlene and John are... More

A family event, the Bat Mitzvah of my cousin, brought us to Marblehead for the weekend of 30 and 31 March and 01 April 2012. Both easily and centrally located to the family events of the weekend, we were welcomed graciously by the innkeepers. With spacious accommodations, our weekend was restful and relaxing. A truly enjoyable place to stay.

During a ten-day visit with family following a medical emergency, our ground floor suite at the Marblehead Inn was exactly what we needed. Accommodations were spacious, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. Service was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. We found the quiet, relaxed atmosphere to be very restorative. On sunny days, the private patio outside our living room was a... More
