Very little sound insulation between rooms. They kindly moved me. The breakfasts are the most perfunctory I’ve ever had at an inn: instant oatmeal, Chobani yoghurt served in its original packaging. Good coffee and homemade granola. I could attribute some of this to Covid practices, but staff wasn’t masked, so no.

First time staying at a B&B. Would definitely stay again and book a specific room. We were in room 31 and it was cute but the bathroom was very small compared to some of the other photos I see. The sink had no storage space and no where to do makeup or get ready. The walls are very thin so we heard a lot! Bed was comfortable and the breakfast every day was great. Loved how walkable it was to get around Marblehead and visit some of the attractions and see the coast. Quaint and charming!

Magical Marblehead
Small room but well appointed and cozy. Bedding was excellent. Our room opened right out into the garden which made us feel like we were staying in a lovely guest house on the property. Nice breakfast in the garden was lovely. We will stay there again. Staff and Owner were accommodating and friendly.
