Escape Close to Boston

4.6 on May 10, 2015

Lovely home with great garden. Close to shopping, restaurants and harbor. Hosts made us feel right at home!

You'll love this place!

The only potential drawback is that you do not have a bathroom in your bedroom (it's shared in the hall) - that was not a problem for us! The room itself is impeccable and the rest of the home is lovely and warm. The garden is remarkable and as far as we could tell the only one of its kind in Marblehead. And Bob and Lisa are just about the nicest people and most gracious hosts you could ever meet!

Very quiet

Quiet, clean, charming hosts, within easy walking distance of restaurants and waterfront. The only downside is a shared bathroom but with only two guest rooms it's not a big problem. We had a great time and would gladly go back again.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in August 2012. Bob and Lisa are amazing! We instantly felt right at home. We had major car trouble driving up from NJ, and they didn't hesitate to help us with anything and everything, including chauffeuring us around while our car was getting repaired! We cannot wait to go back, hoping to reserve our room in October. Bob and Lisa were just the best hosts, and I can't wait to see them again. Thanks again for making our honeymoon so special!

My First Time

4.6 on November 09, 2013

This was my first experience in a B and B what a wonderful introduction to this form of accommodation. Lisa and Bob made us feel so welcome, gave useful insights into the local area adding to pleasure of our stay. Although the room was a little small and could benefit from a chair at the the desk it was very charming and comfortable. Breakfast was wholesome and delicious.

Outstanding Inn!!

Very clean bathroom, lovely bedroom, great breakfast and wonderful hosts. Bob and Lisa's advice and information on Marblehead and its surrounding areas was fantastic as well as their kindness and generosity. I loved every minute of my stay in Harbor Gardens and look forward to returning sometime.

Home away from home

4.8 on June 13, 2012

I have stayed in B&Bs around the world, and tip my hat to the warmth and hospitality that Bob and Lisa provide. It is clear they genuinely love having guests and in short order, make you feel a part of their family ... while at the same time providing a space that is open, quiet, inviting, relaxing and non-intrusive. Located right in the heart of old Marblehead, it is a perfect base to wander the shops, rocky beach fronts and green spaces that make Marblehead so special. Love the garden -- spent a few early mornings out there sitting in the quiet, working on several stories (I am a writer) sipping coffee. Breakfasts were outstanding with fresh fruit bowls that rivaled the ones I make for myself each morning, and fresh pastry that was home-baked by, get this, Bob's mum. Wine in the evening, watching the Celtics (lose sadly) with Bob and Lisa, and the warm smiles each time we saw each other. Few B&B's can match the sense of home away from home one will feel staying here. I will definitely be back! Michael H

I Wish I Never Had To Leave

Staying at Harbor Gardens Inn was one of the best choices I have ever made. I have never experienced such wonderful people or such a pleasant atmosphere at a bed and breakfast before. Bob and Lisa were such gracious hosts and the lodgings were beautiful. Walking out on the porch and being able to see the well- attended garden was such a pleasure. The best part of the stay was that the water and many adorable shops were within walking distance. Overall, I would give the entire stay 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone looking for a bes and breakfast in the Marblehead area.

An Oasis in the heart of Marblehead

4.4 on May 24, 2012

Bob and Lisa have created a really wonderful place to stay and relax, tucked away in a corner of wonderful Marblehead. They are a great couple who devote a great deal of care to ensuring that every guest feels perfectly at home. The rooms are excellent, the facilities first rate and the breakfasts excellent (a finer fruit salad cannot not found anywhere!). The best recommendation I can offer is that we hope to go back. Definitely worth a trip across the Atlantic!
