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...

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...

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the wonderful cooking and the ambiance of this historic home. Thank you for the great compliments!

However, we did ran out and...

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. The breakfasts and afternoon treats were "out of this world"! The bed with its luxurious sheets afforded me a sound night's sleep, something that rarely happens with my fibromyalgia when I am away...

We are so happy you selected the Inn to celebrate such an important Anniversary and even happier to know that we lived up to a Five Star rating.

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. That was relaxing after a morning of travelling. The room was perfect. Good size and nicely furnished. We always seek out B&Bs in older historic houses as we love...

This place has a wonderful private and comfortable ambience, with helpful and friendly staff. We took a room with private patio overlooking the pool. The room was small (as described) but the patio area more than made up for it. We chose to eat our breakfast there and it was perfect. My only regret is that we chose to use...

A trip to the town of Marblehead itself is truly an experience all should enjoy at least once. From someone who has lived and worked in many places on Cape Cod and have experienced the quintessential feel of "First Period" architecture on a long term basis, the town of Marblehead now tops my list of favorites as it is pretty...

They have the best French toast and egg bake dish! I look forward to staying at this place every time I visit here for work. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are so cute and quaint. I also love their shampoo, conditioner, and soap too.

The pictures are very accurate and our lovely room was more like a suite than a normal room--complete with a sitting area and fireplace. All was immaculately clean and warmly decorated, albeit a bit faded. My only gripe is that they only have queen size beds, which for my 6'3 husband is a stretch as he has to sleep diagonally...
