About The Hotel Marblehead
Rich with history, The Hotel Marblehead is the perfect place to escape for your coastal New England getaway.
The Victorian home that is now our boutique Marblehead hotel was originally built by J.P. Harris in 1871, who died shortly after the construction's completion. On July 10, 1872 the house was sold to Mr. Otis Roberts, a prominent shoe box manufacturer, and the home continued to change hands including to a leather merchant (Elbridge Gerry Brown and his wife Caroline) in 1880 and a local attorney (Orren Fairfield) and his wife in 1911, and then to Emma J. Fairfield in 1917.
Ms. Fairfield converted the home into a "summer guest house" known as Pleasant Manor in the early 1920s, in fact, Amelia Earhart and her mother were guests at the inn in 1923. In 1975 it was purchased by the Phelan family who lived at and operated the inn for 17 years with the help of their 5 children.
In 1997, the inn was purchased by the Rockett Family who renamed it The Marblehead Inn—it became The Hotel Marblehead in 2011 where the property has been updated in a nautical, midcentury modern style to pay homage to its historical past while offering today's guests a comfortable, modern boutique stay experience.
We look forward to welcoming you!
