“Great Victorian Inn; wonderful Innkeepers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

We arrived in Marblehead in the dark, but knew of the Inn, so tried our luck ... it was off-season so they had some space... in the summer or Hallowe'en one would have to book months ahead. The ambience was what one might expect in a large 1870s structure, but the rooms were even better, with colonial charm, impeccable decor and all of the amenities one would expect and more in a four-five star hotel, but the Innkeepers, John and Karlene also added greatly to our stay with knowledge and good conversation ... and a nice breakfast before we left for local visiting. We needed to get on our way, so could not stay a second night as we would have preferred, but will add it to our list of places to return on our next trip this way. Oh yes, the local restaurants we ate in this area are recommended as well.

My stay at the Marblehead Inn was fantastic. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. The innkeepers, Karlene and John, are welcoming, knowledgeable, and very hospitable. We had a great time comparing travel notes and swapping stories. If you find yourself in Marblehead, stay at the Marblehead Inn.

We found this inn to be very clean and most comfortable. Hosts Karlene and John were very professional and accommodating and had interesting stories to share. There are some good food locations nearby. Overall, we were very satisfied and would recommend this place to others.

My wife and I made a last minute decision to travel to the area and contacted the Marblehead Inn based on the reviews we saw, which turned out to be very accurate. They were very accomodating to our last minute scheduling and late arrival, making sure we had everything we needed as well as making us feel very welcome. Everything from the rooms, kitchen and common areas were comfortable and spotless, and the hosts were welcoming and helpful. Would return there in the future and recommend it to others. Plenty to do and see within a short drive of the Inn as well.

Room Tip: We stayed in the smallest room that they had (last minute reservation) and it was more than large en...
