Susan was the perfect host from the start planning our weekend getaway to the Marblehead coast. Her dining recommendations were exceptional, outdoor waterfront mid-afternoon lunch at The Landing and the best dish ever for dinner at Jack-Tar. Walking into the Harborside House you receive an instant warm family atmosphere. Susan's home is extremely clean and elegantly decorated but still comfortable to feel relaxed. The harbor views from the front of the house were stunning and the garden view from the rear was simply beautiful. The Harborside House is located so that everything is in walking distance, park your car and enjoy the fresh air. I would have to say one of my most enjoyable moments was having coffee in the living room with Susan taking in her history of the home, Marblehead and her experiences. So pleasant.
