This place has a wonderful private and comfortable ambience, with helpful and friendly staff. We took a room with private patio overlooking the pool. The room was small (as described) but the patio area more than made up for it. We chose to eat our breakfast there and it was perfect. My only regret is that we chose to use... More

A trip to the town of Marblehead itself is truly an experience all should enjoy at least once. From someone who has lived and worked in many places on Cape Cod and have experienced the quintessential feel of "First Period" architecture on a long term basis, the town of Marblehead now tops my list of favorites as it is pretty...

The staff are very friendly and make sure you have everything you need including info about the surrounding area. Carolyn was very helpful as soon as we walked in the front door.

They have the best French toast and egg bake dish! I look forward to staying at this place every time I visit here for work. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are so cute and quaint. I also love their shampoo, conditioner, and soap too.

The pictures are very accurate and our lovely room was more like a suite than a normal room--complete with a sitting area and fireplace. All was immaculately clean and warmly decorated, albeit a bit faded. My only gripe is that they only have queen size beds, which for my 6'3 husband is a stretch as he has to sleep diagonally...

I had visited Marblehead before briefly and had no idea this place was here. I'm so glad I was able to return to this lovely town and to stay at such a beautiful property. Made of two historic homes seamlessly joined together with a new central portion, this inn is much larger than its exterior shows. The nicest surprise is... More

My wife and I stayed at The Harbor Light Inn for a few days while our son attended a lacrosse camp at Endicott College. The inn was clean, comfortble and very accomodating to all of our needs, which included our breakfast which needed to be gluten free.

My son and I stayed here for two nights while we were touring the east coast looking for colleges. We found our reception to be quite nice. Our room was small with two twin beds, but perfectly decorated and nice. Very functional. The breakfasts were nice, but different from what we are used to for a b&b. It was a... More
