I found the Seagull Inn while searching through Trip Advisor for a place to stay in Salem. Since it was a week before Halloween, everywhere was booked in Salem, so I started looking nearby and that's when I discovered the town of Marblehead. We're from Australia, so I didn't know much about the area, but the reviews for the Seagull Inn were exceptional. So I decided to give it a shot. My mum and I stayed there for just one night (unfortunately the second night we wanted to stay was booked out). We arrived late at night, and a note had been left out for us with directions to our room, and details of breakfast in the morning, etc. It was very thoughtful. We stayed in the Library Suite, which was so quaint and gorgeous! There are no views from there, but it doesn't matter, because the minute you step outside in the morning, the views are stunning, everywhere you look. We had a very tasty breakfast and were given plenty of helpful information about what to do around Marblehead and Salem. The innkeeper (who was filling in for the owners) even offered to let us park our hire car in her driveway at her home while in Salem! So helpful! I absolutely loved the Seagull Inn and have already recommended it to all my family and friends (one of which is a travel agent!)!! Thank you!
