We stayed here for three nights in early October in order to be near Boston, as we were meeting up with family there for various activities. We really enjoyed the house (we rented two rooms), and Gene was a wonderful host! What we quickly found out was that we wished we could have spent more time in Marblehead, what a... More

Parking is at a premium in Marblehead but Gene offers parking for his guests very close by. The baked goods for breakfast are amazing. He gets them from a local bakery just... More

This B&B was perfect. Charming, spotless, and full of character. Gene was a wonderful host! Great location, quiet and peaceful quaint fishing village, close to the ocean, Salem and Boston. We couldn't have asked for better! Highly recommended...

The continental breakfast has cereal, muffins/pastry, toast, milk, juice, coffee, and fruit. Our room had a window A/C unit which was very much appreciated as we visited during hot weather. There is a lot of reading... More

Great place! Clean, charming room, nicely decorated including historic photos and books of the area. Generous continental breakfast located in the main room of the Inn - comfortable feel, and a nice conversation with the owner Gene. Great personable customer service, will definitely stay again.

“The Mansfield room is larger with it's own private bathroom, if we return,which we hope to do we would stay there although sharing a bathroom was not really an issue though the other two rooms are smaller.”
