Comfortable room with working fireplace. Great location in the historic section of Marblehead. Friendly staff. Would have been perfect if it wasn't pouring rain! Didn't let that stop us from putting up umbrellas and going for an evening stroll to a nearby restaurant for dinner.

Walking distance to restaurants and bars, excellent accommodation, and very helpful staff. The fireplace in the rooms is a great feature in the winter. There is a bar on-site and breakfast was terrific.

My husband and I spend each Christmas Eve (and the night before) at an Inn or B&B in New England. We have been doing this for 14 years, and the Harbor Light Inn was probably our top pick for best Inn experience. The rooms are lovely, well maintained, and furnished with everything you would want. The breakfast is very nicely...

I loved the fact that this hotel was right in the heart of the town! It's dated 1729, so you know you're living history in this inn. We had room #25, a newer "master bedroom" added on about 25-30 years ago. We loved it! The place is full of New England charm--the living room has a beautiful gas fireplace that...

We gave up our house to all our adult children and we checked into The Harbor Light Inn for four nights over Thanksgiving weekend. It was perfect! Our room was large, comfortable and charming. I've never slept so well anywhere. It really felt like a mini vacation. The breakfast was too delicious to pass up. My biggest complaint was that...

After a long weekend of wedding activities with our respective families, my wife and I stayed at the Harbor Light Inn to have some time to ourselves. We had made a request to book a room online and specifically asked for a room with a bath. Unfortunately, this request was not communicated to the inn. My wife was crestfallen when...

Stopped in for a quiet drink with my spouse for the first time. Stacey treated us welcomed guests. Keep in mind the tavern is small with a limited but adequate selection from the bar but a great place for a quiet and relaxing cocktail. You can also sit by a cozy fire in the living room.

Every step towards this beautiful inn gets better and better. What makes this stay so memorable is the feeling of being an appreciated guest in a beautiful inn.
