A Little Bit of History

Originally owned by J.P. Harris, this victorian home was built in 1871, Mr. Harris died shortly after the completion. On July 10th, 1872 the house was sold to Mr. Otis Roberts, a prominent shoe box manufacturer. Mr. Elbridge Gerry Brown (ca. 1841-1893) was a leather merchant and in 1880 he and his wife moved into this house. After his death in 1893, his widow Caroline lived here until her death in 1909. Orren Fairfield, a lawyer, and his wife lived here from about 1911 until the 1920's when it became the Elm Tree Manor. It was purchased in 1975 by the Phelan family and it was named the pleasant manor. In 1997, the house was purchased by the Rockett Family and it was renamed the Marblehead Inn. 1997 brought the purchase by Mr. Peter McMahon until 2011. The current owners (Bluefish Properties) purchased the home in 2011 and they are devotedly working to upgrade and restore this historial home. Welcome to today!

I fell absolutely in love with this inn from the moment I walked in. It's a beautiful place with great rooms that have a homey feel -- if your home is a 19th century mansion! I was coming in late for some business meetings, and also to take advantage of some down time by the water. There were cold drinks, coffee, and tea available throughout the day. The manager and staff were incredibly attentive and helpful. They were quite knowledgable on local restaurants and attractions for the time-challenged. The continental breakfast consisted of local breads, bagels, jams, coffee, and more -- it was better than what I've had on the Continent. The charming sitting areas had free Wi-Fi, which helped when I had some unexpected online meetings. Will definitely be back and highly recommended.

This place does not look like much from the outside but has many charming rooms and gives you a perfect relaxing stay if you want. Great breakfast with nespresso coffee and newly baked scones. A side and lounge room with possibility to have a beer or a glas of wine. I can recommend this Inn and will hopefully have the chance to return.

I just spent this past weekend here with my boyfriend, and I have to say, this place exceeded my expectations. Definitely highly recommended and THE BEST hotel experience I have ever had. As soon as we arrived, Jeffrey, the innkeeper made us feel so welcome and at home (to be quite honest, this felt more like home than home did). This place deserves more than just 5 stars and is definitely going to be revisited.

My husband and I had a belated honeymoon driving from Toronto Ontario Canada through lake placid, bar harbor, Salem and Gloucester, Boston and Albany. We have always been hesitant staying in a bed and breakfast as opposed to a more private feeling hotel, but this Inn changed our minds completely! An absolutely stunning Victorian manor that I would gladly live in given the chance, with phenomenal staff. We loved the library, and our room was beautiful! Excellent recommendations were given for restaurants and places to see while in the area, and we felt completely at home. Worth every penny! We will absolutely be back the next time we are in that area.
