Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 May 2014

A wonderful Inn to stay at while visiting Marblehead Mas. The staff was very friendly, and the room very comfortable. The Inn gave the felling of being home while away from home. Romantic spot in a town very rich in history. Plenty to do and all within walking distance of the Inn. I booked room 22 and was not disappointed, it was exactly as described in the Inn's advertisement. A definite place to return to.

Very charming Inn. Location is very ideal, you literally walk out the front door, turn left, and you have beautiful mom and pop shops within feet. We were on the third floor with creaky stairs, so don't expect to go anywhere without alerting your neighbors . The bed was slightly stiff, but still comfortable. Nice breakfast in the morning.

Our long-time favorite inn in Swampscott MA was recently razed to accommodate condominiums, and after staying at the Harbor Light Inn in Marblehead we feel like we again have a home when visiting the area. The Inn is beautifully decorated, our room was lovely, the staff was generous and welcoming, the afternoon "snack" (a to-die-for chocolate cake) was incredible and the breakfast was fabulous (pear and almond French toast -- how great is that!). Aside from all that, it was a beautiful early-May spring day and everything was in bloom. Marblehead was at its best. This will be our home-away-from-home whenever we're in the Boston area!

This place is awesome! Such an old house but very undated. The rooms are very romantic with a fireplace and Jacuzzi. We had room 25 which is great. Marblehead is a great town to explore and the B & B is within walking distance to many sight seeing attractions. It has a lot of history. The breakfast was great. The only thing a didn't care for (and that's why I give it a 4 star instead of a 5 star) is that the breakfast is buffet style. For as classy and let's be honest, as for as pricey as it is, I feel each person should be waited on like typical B & B's (expensive ones anyway that we have been to). But other than that, it was great. My husband didn't like anything that they had for breakfast so they offered to make him eggs, which I thought was nice. The staff that is there is extremely nice and informative.

Thank you for writing how much you enjoyed our Romantic Inn and staff.
In the past we have surveyed our guests to see how they like to have breakfast and we had an overwhelming response to having a buffet. We do offer a wonderful selection daily and if that does not agree with your preference we are always happy to offer to cook eggs to order. We do take care of any special dietary needs as well. Next time you visit please mention any special items you would like and we will be happy to accommodate them.

I love the Harbor Light Inn! The staff feels like family, and they treat me as such. The rooms are comfortable, and the location is very convenient, enabling you to enjoy the town on foot. While there are many great restaurants within walking distances, the HLI breakfast is delicious, and there are many welcoming common rooms in which to relax and read, do a puzzle, play a game, or eat take-out.

Room Tip: All I've stayed in are great. Just look at the descriptions; they are accurate.

Upon arrival we felt the warmth from one of several fireplaces, as well as from the reception. Our room was tidy and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and we felt we were in an elegant setting. Loved how all was set up throughout. We would love to return for another visit.

Dear husband and I love to visit New England B&B's, and this was one of the best marriages of convenience and charm we've seen so far. Our room (32, beautiful architecture, nice big bed, natural light, private and quiet) was a dream. This B&B has a lot of rooms (I think we were told that there were 40) but you still get the personal service and intimate breakfast that you would expect from a smaller establishment. Breakfast, by the way, was yummy!

Thank you for a lovely review and compliments on our breakfast!. We always enjoy hearing the response of our guests trips. We are much smaller than you thought, just 20 rooms which does give us plenty of interaction with our guests. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to N.E.
