My partner and I loved Harborside House. The location is perfect--right above the harbor and within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Susan made us right at home, loaning us her two bicycles (comfortably vintage), and giving us all sorts of advice and information. Breakfasts are glorious--terrific coffee, lovely fruit, delicious home-baked breads, and relaxed conversation. A dream of...

I stayed at the Harborside House on a business trip when I worked in nearby Lynn. the charm of Marblehead and Susan's hospitality made me wish I had more time to linger and relax.

Harborside House was a perfect place for my mother and me to spend a couple of nights on our "sentimental journey" to see her childhood home just outside of Boston. We loved the fact that it's in close view of the harbor and in the the old part of Marblehead, where my parents had lived for 30 years and where...

My husband had a weekend of business in Marblehead, and the "sponsor" selected this B&B for his accommodations. Since I enjoy B&Bs, we made it a weekend trip "by the sea." Susan was very welcoming and recommended an excellent nearby restaurant for dinner (Jack-Tar American Tavern). Our room overlooked the "garden" (covered with snow this weekend, but with a very...

We spent Christmas visiting friends in Marblehead but due to limited space decided to stay at Harborside House for six nights. We loved the house, the friendliness and assistance of Susan, the owner, and the breadth and depth of information and suggestions related to historic and cultural sites and opportunities in the area. The house is comfortable and welcoming and...

We planned our Halloween trip back in July. Who would have guessed a major hurricane (Sandy) would come so late in the season. Fortunately, Marblehead was on the outskirts of the storm. Susan's home was very warm and comfortable while the storm raged on. From there on, our vacation was smooth sailing (pun intended). Susan was very helpful in our...

The Harborside House in Marblehead was a sweet surprise and made for a superb weekend for me and several friends who stayed there in November of 2012. The two-twin-bed room is elegant and comfortable - the small luxuries much appreciated, from the silky sheets to the skylight in the bathroom, and the larger, more apparent luxuries like the sophisticated paintings...

We visited Marblehead in October 2012, and stayed at The Harborside House. The owner Susan is the most accommodating and sweetest lady.

We had towels and robes waiting for...
