North of Boston/Merrimack Valley have comfortable B&Bs & historic inns
From a pair of old brownstones on Beacon Street in the Greater Boston area to a lodging that first opened as a crossroads public house in Concord in 1716, Massachusetts inns and B&Bs are smaller, quiet, extremely luxurious lodgings that reflect the historic character and regions of MA. Inns are found in every corner of Mass, including North of Boston, Marblehead, Rockport, and Salem. Inns usually offer personal luxuries like hot tubs and Jacuzzis, fine dining, gardens and walking trails, spectacular scenery, and nearby cultural attractions. North of Boston region, including picturesque Cape Ann, is a place to go whale watching in Gloucester, visit museums of witchcraft in Salem, learn about New England’s seafaring past at the Peabody Essex Museum, enjoy art and beautiful harbor vistas in Marblehead and Rockport, see the history of the Industrial Revolution in Lowell, and dine on lobster and seafood at every stop.
