We stayed at the Seagull Inn for 6 nights over Christmas in Dec 2010. The stay could not have been nicer!. We got to experience gale-force winds, a wild ocean and heavy snow over the holiday, and were delighted with the chance to stay curled up in bed during the worst of it. We were in the Library Suite - a warm and delightful room lined with books that you want to read, and with light that was bright enough to read them - a key issue for my aging eyes these days. Innkeepers Ruth and Skip were friendly, funny and accommodating. When my back molar developed an abscess, they amazingly managed to locate a doctor and dentist for pain meds and antibiotics, despite the deep snow and holiday weekend.
Everything in the Inn seemed focused on comfort - My partner, who is always cold, was happy about the supplemental in-room heater and the extra down quilt. We loved being able to snack on nuts, chocolates, sherry and copious goodies - and were delighted with Skip's offering of wine and conversation after the sun was over the yard-arm. The location is lovely, the ocean is nearby, and the historic homes of Marblehead were charming, and fabulously decorated for the holidays. Breakfasts were delicious, varied and plentiful and the coffee was excellent. We look forward to visiting again and again.
