My husband and I stayed at the Harborside House during our vacation and very much enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was delicious, coffee was fresh, location was perfect, and Susan was a wonderful and knowledgeable host. If you're there on a Wednesday, check out the Barnacle for their fresh lobster deals and Bloody Marys!

Harborside House is a great B & B in a nice location. Susan, the hostess, recommended various restaurants for lunch and dinner, which were all great choices. Susan always had chocolate chip cookies set out for the guests that were delicious. She also made a delicious homemade bread for breakfast. The house is an easy walk to town, the restaurants...

Right from the start Susan made us feel welcome and at home. She was excited for our stay as we were biking down from Portsmouth NH and she wanted to hear about the trip. The Inn is right across the street from the water. Rooms are nice, clean and well appointed. Fresh homemade cookies are out upon arrival and breakfast... More

At the end of a series of college visits ending in Boston, my exhausted teenage daughter and I decided to spend a night in Marblehead before heading back to California. I called Susan at the very last minute -- 2 hours before we planned to arrive! She graciously accommodated us, including my gluten free dietary needs. Susan and her home... More

My husband and I spent this past weekend at Harborside House and were thoroughly impressed with the home, its furnishings (many antiques), and the charm of the owner Susan. She has lived in the house for 50 years, and the love and care she has given it is obvious. Extra touches for her visitors (unexpected but appreciated toiletries, bottled water,... More

To be honest, I chose a stay in Marblehead purely for its proximity to Boston. Little did I know I'd fall in love with it! Susan has created a real home away from home. The charming house with its lovely view was welcoming and relaxing after our long days of touring. Little touches everywhere catered to our every whim: fresh-baked... More
