Finding the Brimblecomb Hill B&B. My husband and I give high grades to this B&B - the proprietor, the ambiance, the service and the location. It is all one could ask for and more. We look forward to our next visit.

Marblehead is really a place to discover ! The little inn held by Gene Arnould is in the historic heart of Marblehead, near the sea, the port, some parks and nice shops. The historic caracter of the house is well preserved, but in a convivial manner. Gene serves fine local croissants and muffins each morning. He is a most sympathetic host, of agreeable conversation without at all being invading. You can rely on the advices inspired by his large culture and also of his knowledge of the region. Make a visit to his Gallery near the Inn : there is a great selection of marine paintings. The Brimblecomb Hill B&B was perfect as an anchor point for our 2 days in Boston. The two rooms with shared bathroom are rather small but adequate if the inn is but a start and return point for your excursions. The little living room or the shady backyard can compensate for relaxation moments. The main room is more spacious and offers shelves full of books. It is more exposed to traffic noises, but the street is far from being a boulevard.... All rooms are equipped with AC units.

Fabulous overnight. Innkeeper, Gene arnould, is welcoming and a great source of information on Marblehead. His inn is cozy. His art & book collection are fantastic. Plus, Keith Richards was once a visitor!

We were so delighted to have found this little jewel. Far enough away from Boston - but only 40 minutes by car, located in a well-situated & compact seaside location. The room was perfect for us - a library bedroom, complete with reading light and rocking chair AND a small, perfectly picked collection of Dylan Thomas (so we really felt at home!). The resident cat just topped off things nicely. Gene was very welcoming and extremely helpful, making dining suggestions (all good) as well as advising on our day trip to Boston. Our only small criticism was the lack of hot water in the dining area outside of "breakfast" hours - we Welsh do like a good cup of tea at regular intervals - dawn til dusk! But the morning muffins were an excellent compensation. We will certainly be beating a path to Brimblecomb House if the opportunity arises again to visit New England.

This quaint and historic B&B was a perfect place to stay and Gene is a wonderful host. We would definitely love to visit Brimblecomb Hill and Marblehead again.

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Brimblecomb Hill B&B for four nights in the Isaac Mansfield Room. The B&B is at the heart of historic Marblehead in a lovely, safe neighborhood only a few blocks from the waterfront with its restaurants, museums, beaches and Fort Sewall. The room was spacious and fitted with nice antiques, a huge assortment of books, and a modern ensuite bathroom. Gene is an ideal host -- he checks in on guests periodically to make sure that all is satisfactory and provides great advice on local attractions and restaurants -- but otherwise guests are given their independence. He makes an admirable pot of coffee and continental breakfast in the morning, and provides the daily newspaper to read over breakfast. As parking space is a bit of a challenge in the historic area of town, Gene provides a parking pass to a parking lot across from the B&B. We didn't need to use our car much anyhow, as we most sites are conveniently close. Should we come this way again for a vacation, we would definitely reserve a room at the Brimblecomb Hill B&B.
