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. They were extremely friendly and gave us great suggestions for sights to see... More

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

It was quiet, peaceful, and elegant. The authentic history of the winding stairways and hallways, historic fireplace in our room, and high ceiling with exposed beams were all delightful. Breakfast was more like a quality hotel buffet than an inn. Staff were helpful and Cassandra gave us great dinner recommendations. We stayed in a third floor room with exposed 300... More

This 1720s collection of houses now functions as an inn in the middle of Marblehead's downtown. We had a first class room under the rafters -- exposed so you can see how the carpenters built the inn. The room was quiet, sizeable, and, in a hot summer, cool. If you need to cool off further, there's a pool out back.... More

We recently stayed at the Harbor Light Inn during our stay in Marblehead for a family wedding, and cannot recommend a better place to stay in the heart of town.
