quant little town, and beautiful heritage home

Posted Nov 12, 2013
Pros: The B&B owners, so very friendly & helpful, the delicious muffins, and the comfy beds.
Location: Great location as this charming town is a close 10 min drive to Salem and a short trip to Boston.
So glad we found this little gem of a town and B & B. Wonderfully friendly, cozy, with so much charm. Thank you for the great stay!

wonderful bed and breakfast

The location was the only concern, it's tucked away in the neighborhood. The owners( Lisa and Bob) were friendly, inviting, and really nice to talk with. They gave great advice about taking a taxi into Salem, instead of trying to park there. the room made you feel at home, and the house was beautiful.

Friendly owners but

Posted Oct 31, 2013
Pros: Quite and a home
Cons: If not en suite then at least a bathroom solely for the room
Location: Handy for Salem and very interesting museum in Marblehead
Liked the idea of being in the owners house but room was drap and no en suite, big problem. Bathroom particularly had owners effects inside. Nice lounge and owners very friendly and welcoming. Difficult to find and certainly over priced ICE LONGand

Not worth the price - SHARED BATH

Posted Oct 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
On the hotels.com site and the Harbor Gardens site, it never spells out that you will be sharing a bathroom. We shared the bathroom with at least three other people, possibly more since the owners' personal effects were in there too, such as hairbrushes and dirty clothes on one night. The build-up of hair in the bathtub and on the floor over the few days we were there was just gross. The room we stayed in smelled like dog and scented candles, though I never saw a dog in the house. The walls of the house are paper thin, so you hear every conversation going on at any time of the day or night. There is no way to secure your valuables or even lock your room. This guest room in these people's house is just one step above couch surfing. The people that own and live in this house are very nice, but I feel like this was false advertising about the bathroom and this house not really being a true bed and breakfast experience. I definitely would not have paid this much if I had known what it would have been like.

Fantastic service

Generally excellent, especially the breakfasts, which were the best we had in our holiday in New England (8 hotels) The only minor point was a slight musty smell in the room

Great place to stay

Stopped here for 3 nights before a flight home from Boston, a 30 min drive. Lisa and Bob both very welcoming to their home which is lovely, they also helped us with where to go and best restaurants in the area.

The good and the bad

The hosts were wonderful people and the setting was just wonderful. The shared bathroom and small beds and lack of a chair in the room were downers (especially at this price).

Hidden away historic home

Posted Jul 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were in the area to attend a wedding! Marblehead is a a wonderful spot, full of quaint shops and rich with history.The owner of the Harbor Gardens Inn was very kind and helpful. The style of the B&B is "Laissez-faire" as there is lots of flexibility offered to the guests. We might have preferred to have an ensuite bath. However, we only had to share for one night as the other room was vacant for the second night of our stay.I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet private location.
