This was the third year in a row I've come here for a long weekend get away, and as always it was fantastic. The town of Marblehead is one of my favorite places to visit, and this inn is a great place to stay while visiting. Personally, I prefer the B&B experience to a big hotel, but I also like...

It is so nice that you enjoy returning to our beautiful Inn and appreciate our friendly staff and antique home. We're sorry to hear that you were chilly but happy that you managed to bundle up. Several of the rooms have individual heaters and we are checking to see why yours may have been too loud. Thank you for taking...

I surprised my boyfriend with an overnight stay here for his birthday. It was beautiful inside and the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. They allowed me to gain access to our room early to surprise him with decorations and they even let me store a small cake in their spare refrigerator. The Inn is located within...

Well, I could come back here every year and be happy. It is a great walking town, the kind of place that makes you want to put your own house on the market and move directly here. The setting is pure New England with good restaurants and fun shops. The inn is welcoming and comfortable. I especially loved the tavern...

Loved the old room #5. Think there was definetly paranormal activity going on! Only thing I didn't like was the fact that I had to be treated like a child to get a duralog for the fireplace. Was given the 3rd degree... Then after 1st log, would need to pay for more?! Walking around the town was great. Narrow road...

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at our Inn. It was never our intent to make you feel uncomfortable about our fire logs. Being as the house was built in the 1700's we are extremely cautious about telling guests how to use our fireplaces. Many people do not have fireplaces at home so we do...

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.

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...
