For anyone visiting the Boston area for a vacation or visiting relatives, The Marblehead Inn
in historic Marblehead Mass is the best B&B in the area.
For more than 20 years, I had stayed at a differant B&B when visiting Boston's North Shore. Recently i tried the Marblehead Inn and was completely blown away by the accommodations, serenity, and comfort of the rooms as well as the outstanding service and helpfulness of the staff. This B&B is a gem.
The Marblehead Inn is an old home that has been painstakingly restored. And unlike other B&B's in this part of the country where narrow staircase make it very difficult to make the trip upstairs with a bag in hand, the Marblehead Inn's staircase is wide enough and accomodating. Our room was a suite. It was large and amazingly quiet. What was THE BEST however, was the bed. Whether it's a hotel or B&B, it's usually difficult for us to get a good night's sleep becuase the beds just aren't like home. Not the case at The Marblehead Inn. The bed was fantastic. It didn't sag, wasn't too hard...it was perfect. The next nice thing was the bathroom (spacious) and shower....big!! Again, that's not usually what we've found at other B&Bs where the bathrooms are typically cramped, and the shower tight. Not so at the Marblehead Inn.
While we didn't get a chance to savor the continental breakfast it looked terrific. We'll try it next time.
The Marblehead Inn is centrally located with easy access to/from the airport or local sightseeing spots like Glouchester and Rockport, as well as the foliage routes in New Hamphire, Maine and Massachusetts in the fall season.
And last, the owners Collen and John couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. From the time we made the reservation, all the way through a very early check out, they were terrific. They definately made us feel "at home".
