I recently attended a meeting here, a smaller size, about 8 people. We were looking for a different atmosphere that was also very comfortable. Mr. Conway and his staff were so attentive and designed our meeting spaces that were conducive to our needs. I hope our next offsite meeting will be held at this centrally located Inn. I only hope...

This was our second trip to the Harbor Light Inn and once again our expectations were exceeded. From the warm and friendly staff, to the attention to details our stay was relaxing and comfortable. Be prepared for a robust breakfast and nice delicacies to enhance afternoon tea which will leave you needing some exercise. The pool is lovely and the...

The property is lovely, the Inn is in a very good location for exploring beautiful Marblehead. We booked fairly last minute so only two rooms were available. We went with #28 since it had a fireplace, but since the weather was quite warm, we didn't expect we would be allowed to use it and were correct. The room itself is...

We are happy to hear you enjoyed our lovely Inn. Room 28 is the only bathroom with the original claw foot tub. We do try to describe this when guests call so they know that in advance. It is the most comfortable tub to soak in. I apologize if we did not inform you in advance. All of the other...

Great location in the town of Marblehead. Walking distance to everywhere. Staff was amazing and I felt like they were always there when I needed them. There's even a small tavern bar located inside the inn where all of the guests gathered after dinner for a drink and shared stories from all their travels throughout the years. Very peaceful place,...

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!
