Another wonderful stay with an amazing host. Historic home within an historic town that immediately makes you feel at home. I am a single traveler from the UK who has stayed in both the lovely garden and harbour rooms on 2 separate Halloween visits. Host Susan is very welcoming and will assist you with all your travel and local needs...

Harborside House is a peaceful, lovely old house near enough to the water one can hear the sea at night. There is no TV, and the best room has twin beds, but the room is quiet and comfortable and if you're stressed and need to get away, this is the place. There's another double room at the back of the...

Stayed 2 nights in October and immediately felt like family. Beautiful historic home in a newly discovered destination, Marblehead, MA. Thought we were coming out to visit Salem (what a pathetic joke of an experience that was) and decided Marblehead was the place to be. Thank you Susan for sharing your beautiful home with us.

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Garden room which was beautiful, it even had a view of the harbor from one of the windows. Breakfast, fresh bread and a fruit spread was waiting for us which was prepared by Susan who was a delight and made us tea in the evening. The patio had a gorgeous view of the...

Harborside House is ideally located for a visit to Marblehead, Massachussets. The house itself is very attractive and very comfortably furnished, and Susan is a wonderful host. We were her only guests and nothing was too much trouble.

My wife and I with our four children (ages 9-14) have just spent five days at Harborside House while visiting Marblehead for the first time. Our hostess Susan was simply delightful.

A friend and I booked the twin room for our high school reunion weekend. Susan was such a lovely hostess, welcoming and friendly, and the house is so charming. It was unusually hot the first night, but a couple of fans cooled down the room enough to enjoy, and when the weather turned, it was perfect (the beds were especially...
