Our stay at the Marsh Harbour Inn is always like having a bit of heaven on earth. We stayed in the Blockade Runner suite and it was great. The suite was immaculate, the bed and linens great and other amenities were perfect. The staff was extremely helpful and the breakfast every morning was good. Thank you Marsh Harbour Inn.

My husband and I recently stayed in the Yacht Master suite at the Marsh Harbor Inn on Bald Head Island at the beginning of September. We stay here exclusively because we enjoy the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, as well as the comfort and cleanliness of the Inn. I personally love the linens (the best quality, always pristine), and... More

We just got back from a stay at the March Harbour Inn and were truly delighted. The innkeepers were wonderful and went out of their way to be helpful. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Our room was lovely overlooking the harbour. Our golf cart was so much fun to wander around the island in. Thank you so much. I... More

One word: filthy. I am picky, I get it. However, at $500 a night, before tax, the accommodations better be at least clean. This place was not. Not one bit. Old water stains on the ceiling, I suppose from a leaky roof, chipped paint on the windows sills, black fingerprints on the door jams and around the door handles, a... More

This B & B on Bald Head Island is one of the best places we have stayed. We choose to stay at bed and breakfast inns because of quaint, friendly, home away from home feel, and the Marsh Harbour did not disappoint. We were welcomed as if we were family.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You wake up in the morning...and step onto your private deck where sailboats rock gently in the marina. Beyond, you see a wide stretch of blue ocean, and to the side a creek winding through serene marshland. Surrounding the harbour are homes, both quaint and majestic—a scene that has inspired this place to be called "the Nantucket of the South." The Marsh Harbour is a boutique Inn, reminiscent of a grand coastal manor estate, overlooking the Harbour on Bald Head Island. Accommodations include nine rooms and four spectacular suites. A breakfast buffet is served daily in the dining room and a wine and cheese reception is hosted on the weekends. Enjoy sweeping views of the Marina, Atlantic Ocean and the marshes from every room. Golf cart (the only island transportation), breakfast, daily housekeeping is included in your rate. We are the only hotel facility on Bald Head Island. Suites are also available for fractional purchase, offering 4 weeks per year usage. ... more   less
