My husband & I very much enjoyed our stay at the Marblehead Inn. This historic inn is beautiful on the inside & out. We loved the woman who works at the front desk (I'm so sorry I can't recall her name, but she has dark hair). She was friendly & funny & made us feel extremely welcome with her kind & helpful personality.
Our room was on the 2nd floor. A bit small, but we got used to it quickly. We had a claw foot bathtub & a shower. Overall, quite nice. The bed was very firm for our taste, but one never knows how guests will prefer beds. It was comfortable overall & felt very homey. I could live there happily for years.
The options for breakfast are great. Delicious bagels above what you can get at the grocery store, as well as other options like cereal & muffins. There's no typical hot breakfast, which is fine by me, as I don't like hot breakfast options because bacon tends to make the whole kitchen "feel" greasy & the smell of eggs really grosses me out, so I was very thankful for the lovely & civilized breakfast offerings here! The coffee is perfect (important!) and the snacks & tea available at all hours were appreciated (especially the artisan pumpkin bread) :)
The best thing: the quiet. The first night we stayed, there was only one other couple a the inn, the last night it was a full house. The noise levels were identical for both these nights. Now that's just something you aren't going to get at a hotel. These older homes, in my experience to really provide peace & quiet. The back yard was lovely & taking a walk to town was lovely, too.
This is a very affordable place to stay & a great value overall. We would definitely stay here again.
