Nancy and I enjoyed our stay here in Marblehead. To have such a lovely home base after our explorations recharged us for the next day's adventures. The Inn is located close to shops, restaurants and many historical structures. The morning breakfasts of quiches, sweet breads, fresh fruit and other delicious tempters got us out of bed early. Our room was...

I know there are many "5" reviews but I just thought it was "ok". Clean, friendly and efficient staff, plenty of space to hang out whether the very small and cozy bar or comfortable living room with papers and magazines.These are all 5's! Nice location to walk to the water or to the center of the old district. Perfect locale...

We were dismayed to read that your experience with breakfast did not meet your expectations. Our staff works diligently to provide an array of hot dishes daily, along with varied fresh bread, muffins or coffeecakes. All of these items, other than the sliced whole grain bread, are baked in our kitchen. Also, the cake you spoke of was Emeril's Buttermilk...

This hotel was recommended to me by a business associate and it didn't disappoint. I happened to stay in two different rooms over the weekend both of which were very nice, as were the breakfasts, and the general ambiance of the Inn. On Sunday, as I was heading south on Route 95 I received a call from the owner, Peter...

We enjoyed our stay here and were very impressed with the staff, from check-in through two days of excellent, attentive, unobtrusive and graceful attention. We also were present when staff diffused a couple of minor issues with other guests, which were taken care of quickly and deftly. As very frequent business and pleasure travelers, we appreciate the difference between our...

Found this in quite accidently, and it was just lovely. The room that I had selected was wonderful. Very Clean, and decorated very nicely. The town of Marblehead was small enough to walk everywhere. Shopping, restaurants, great views. It was charming. Also very near to Salem, and Boston. So you have a lot of options. The managers were extremely friendly...

I enjoyed my 2 night stay here but it could have been so much more. I wanted to love this place but two big problems were both in my room.

Beautiful house, beautifully furnished. Great bedroom and bathroom. Breakfast pleasant but not a great deal of choice. Location very good for the old town. Expensive but pleasant indulgence. Our one night stay was not long enough to take full advantage of the Inn.

I stayed here with friends for along weekend. It is in a great location near downtown and near the harbor. The room was large and beautifully furnished. It has a nice back yard and pool. Breakfast was excellent. The bar is a hidden gem. It's a great place for a drink in the evening.
