Alcohol Policy: Per Massachusetts Liquor License Law, outside alcohol is not permitted anywhere on property. Harbor Light Inn is the sole provider of alcoholic beverage service for all guests on property.

Our Marblehead hotel’s small size means cancellations affect us significantly. For any cancellation or change of dates, we must receive 14 days’ notice prior to your confirmed arrival for a refund of your deposit. For cancellations received less than 14 days before check-in, regardless of the reason, your deposit will be non-refundable. You are always welcome to send a friend or family member in your place. If a change of date is requested within 14 days, your deposit will only be transferable to the new dates IF we are able to recover income loss for the original confirmed dates.

If you don’t check in on the reservation  date, you will be charged the total price of the stay.  Should it be necessary for you to depart earlier than your confirmed date, you will be responsible for the full amount of the intended stay.

A $30 processing fee per accommodation is charged on all cancellations/ date changes and is deducted from all refunds. Group bookings (3 or more rooms) are subject to a 21 day cancellation period. Long Term Rentals are subject to a 30 day cancellation period.

Accessibility Policy

Harbor Light Inn warmly welcomes all guests. However, due to the historic significance of our 18th-century seacoast Inn, the property is not wheelchair accessible. Removal of necessary physical barriers for accessibility is not readily achievable as such removal would threaten or destroy the historic significance of the property. These barriers and features include:

  • The entrance to our inn requires maneuvering 3 steps.
  • We cannot add a ramp to the entrance and we do not have an elevator in the inn.
  • For those with only limited mobility who do not require the use of a wheelchair, Rooms #2 and #7 are located on the first floor. Both of these rooms require the guest to maneuver a few steps to the entrance. They offer a walk-in shower which cannot accommodate a wheelchair.
  • All bathrooms offer grab bars and a shower seat is available upon request.
  • Narrow Hallways and doorways are not wheelchair accessible

For special accommodation needs, please call us directly at (781) 631-2186 so we can help you determine the best guest room to ensure you have a comfortable arrival and enjoyable stay.

We work to ensure every guest who wishes to visit can do so regardless of their physical abilities. Among the ways we comply with ADA:

  • We ensure that individuals with disabilities can make reservations during the same hours and in the same manner as individuals without disabilities.
  • We have identified and described inaccessible features in our bed and breakfast and guest rooms in detail to allow individuals with disabilities to determine whether our property meets their needs.
  • Guests with legitimate service animals as defined in the ADA are provided access to all areas of the inn afforded to those without service animals
