“Weekend Escape from the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

The hostess is amazing! She is very thoughtful and entertaining. She is very helpful on the location of things in Marblehead and on the history as well. The atmosphere she has created for her guests in the house is very welcoming and relaxing. The place immediately makes you feel calm and at home. My girlfriend (now fiancee) and I are usually busy during the week with work and the weekend we spent here helped take away the stress. Two of my favorite things were the nicely prepared breakfast and the classical music in the common room. Thanks again for everything Susan!

The proprieter is delightful, and she thinks of everything. Yet she isn't 'in your face' like some B&B owners are. We are big people, so we would have preferred a king-sized bed. But the cookies on the welcome desk made up for that. Because it is an authentic, historic home, the winding stairs are quite tight, so it was not easy for older people to get their suitcases up and down the stairs. It is not a place cut out for the handicapped, as both guest rooms are upstairs.

A hidden gem tucked in among the historic homes along Gregory St. A short walk to the harbor, parks, and restaurants. A lovely,comfortable room with plenty of space, reading material (local history and much more), and a harbor view window. The breakfast was excellent in many ways: the setting, the food, and the engaging conversation/stories with our host, Susan.

We stayed one night at the Harborside House and it was a great night and a great value. We were able to walk into town for dinner and walk along the water and do some great exploring of the area. We definitely plan on returning to the Harborside House.

This past weekend my husband and I used our smatbox gift to stay in the Garden room. It was lovely, comfortable and felt like going home. Susan is warm and smart and a wonderful hostess. The breakfast was healthy and tasty with lots to choose from. The location is great for seeing a lot of the North Shore of Boston. We would stay again. Laura K.

Room Tip: couples should stay in the garden room for comfort and privacy
