My husband and I stayed at the Harbor Light Inn for three nights during our vacation to reconnect with the North Shore of Boston. We're so glad we stayed at this well-appointed and perfectly located B&B with all of the amenities of a hotel. The breakfast spreads were varied and delicious. Would love to see it at holiday time!

This is more than a place to stay. The "light fantastic" experience includes all of the amenities you might expect from a contemporary hotel while maintaining a completely elegant and colonial atmosphere.
