My husband and I have been visiting Marblehead for the past 8 years and have stayed each time at the Harbor Light Inn. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. The staff, especially, Susan, the very efficient manger, couldn't be nicer and more helpful. We enjoy the charm of the Inn and the wonderful breakfast served each morning. There are always delightful snacks in the afternoon with something to drink. We visit our daughter and her family several times a year and each time we stay at the Inn. While we enjoy our visits with our daughter, our son-in-law, and our adorable grandchildren, we feel that staying at the Inn is an added bonus. Our little get-away, if you will. I never hesitate to recommend the Inn to friends and family members.

We found this Inn by mistake after checking into motel hell in Salem. My wife became ill and ended up in the hospital in the middle of the night. We called The Harbor Light Inn and asked if we could check in early because we had been up all night, and they said yes. We had to leave the next day, but cut our trip short to return to the Harbor Light Inn because we enjoyed our stay there so much. The breakfast was excellent and the staff was pleasant and willing to make our stay enjoyable as possible. Marblehead is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The rooms(and we stayed in two differant ones) were clean and comfortable, and close to everything.

I had the fortune of staying at the Harbor Light Inn recently, and I just want to say I had a wonderful experience! First of all, the location is perfect; it's right in downtown Marblehead, so you can walk to all the quaint boutiques and restaurants in town. The room was adorable and it had an amazing private balcony overlooking the garden/pool area. I had the pleasure of enjoying my coffee out there in the morning. I also loved the colors and decorations; very New England! They have two great common areas for guests to use for socializing or reading, or whatever. They provided a cozy place to relax and soak up some New England charm! Breakfast was delicious. There were tons of options from cereal to quiche, fresh fruit, yogurt, and even a home-made bunt cake! I definitely had my fill. Finally, the staff. I cannot say enough good things about them! They were all wonderfully friendly and knowledgable about the area - places to go, things to do, etc...They were very accommodating, and even allowed me to check in early since my room was ready. I had a really great time; thank you, Harbor Light Inn! Next time I come this way, I will definitely be staying here, and if you're looking to stay on the North Shore, THIS is the place to go!

My husband and I just returned from a few days at the Harbor Light Inn. It was a much needed get away, having 6 1/2 yr old twins. We haven't been away in 4 yrs. We came back feeling refreshed, rejuvinated and ready to tackle life and it's challenges again. This was our 4th trip there since our girls were born and love it more each time we go. The people are friendly, the place is romantic and relaxing as someone in the tavern said to us "it is relaxing and has a good vibe!!!" We had a late bite to eat while in the tavern, and our bartender, Sean, left and went to make the food for us. He did an awesome job at it. Breakfast is delicious and has been each time we've gone. We wish we could have stayed longer. Well worth it! LOVE THE HARBOR LIGHT INN AND EVERYONE THERE!

Room Tip: We always try to get room 22 but all the rooms are just as beautiful!

My sister and I met in Marblehead for a getaway weekend and she chose this Inn for our stay.
We had the most enjoyable time there. It is a friendly place (we found all of Marblehead to be very friendly) and the customer service genuine. It is historic, comfortable, warm, relaxing, and fun. There are many room options. The breakfast was very good, fruit to bundt cake and hot dishes in between. Good off street parking. The tavern offers a light menu at night. We will book another stay.
