Like its town, Marblehead inn honors its history with architecture, furnishings, ambiance
Marblehead, with roots that go back to the 17th century, honors its history – and so does one of its finest inns, the Harbor Light Inn, in the town’s harbor district. The inn sits among other lovely homes and buildings, some of which go back to the Revolutionary War and earlier. Inside, the inn’s chandeliers, hand carvings, finely tooled furnishings, paintings and prints reflect the treasures brought back from many different ports during Marblehead’s golden age of sailing. Some rooms have original exposed beams that go back to the 1820s. History buffs will find much to admire in the area, including the Jeremiah Lee Mansion, built in 1768 and preserved in its nearly original state and Fort Sewall, established in 1644 and now a scenic public park.
