The Seagull Inn, Marblehead, MA was the most enjoyable accommodations I have ever experienced. From the moment we walked up through the lovely front lawn, and were greeted by the proprietors, Ruth and Skip, we were pampered. After Skip asking if he could help, he offered us a glass of wine… then we were shown around the property … Our “room” actually turned out to be 2 adjoining rooms with a breathtaking view of the ocean.. then we were told if we needed more space we could take the next room too. When have you ever been told that at any lodging?? The room was lovely with a very New England/Ocean motif – most of the artwork and furniture made by Skip… Nice assortment of COMPLEMENTARY snacks … including a decanter of Sherry! For breakfast we were greeted by Ruth’s amazing assortment of fine foods from homemade hand ground wheat biscuits to lox and raspberry butter. Lovely conversation with Ruth and Skip added so much to the breakfast and the stay. After 2 days I felt like a member of the family instead of a stranger renting a room. I already inquired about staying next year and would absolutely recommend it to anyone..
