We stayed for Halloween weekend in room 35. I chose the room for the king bed a fireplace. To my pleasant surprise, the room was much larger than anticipated. It was amazing. The building is very well kept - from the rooms to the tavern. We spent time in the front room with the fireplace, the dining room, and the... More

Our room looked lovely--and was, except for the fact that the water in our tub/shower never got above luke warm for the 3 days/nights we were there. I notified the management on day 2 but nothing changed, & I was told I must like the water unusually hot & as I was departing, wanted me to go prove that it... More

The place is beautiful , cozy and gives the feeling on New England. One gets the feeling that this place has had better times. The rooms are very nicely designed with beautiful linen and a nice touch - however the door to the bathroom did not close and the toilet did not flush well. Breakfast is very nicely served however...

Staying here for the third time. We love it there. Beautiful rooms and staff. Best of all a very quaint bar to end the night. We would never go anywhere else when we travel to the North Shore. The front desk helped with nearby reservation for dinner. A must place to stay.

The location was terrific! The room was really comfortable and spacious! The receptionist (manager) was very gracious and enormously helpful. Breakfast was simply lovely, and was tailored to accommodate special needs. There is plenty of parking even though you are in the middle of the Old Town. What more need I say? Be aware, because this lovely B&B is housed... More

This was our home for three days and I definitely chose well. Conveniently situated near the restaurants and coastline of Marblehead, this place is plush and has lovely rooms. Creaky floorboards and rickety window sashes make this Inn reek of history. I don't have a sweet tooth but the afternoon confectionary in the lounge area every day is a nice... More

What a WONDERFUL place to end our 45th wedding anniversary trip! The atmosphere and staff were so welcoming, and the accommodations were so relaxing and exquisitely comfortable.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Harbor Light Inn. The staff was very welcoming and eager to please. After arriving, we had a quiet lunch in the cozy bar area.

This place has a wonderful private and comfortable ambience, with helpful and friendly staff. We took a room with private patio overlooking the pool.

A trip to the town of Marblehead itself is truly an experience all should enjoy at least once.
