This is a nice historic home in a quaint historic neighborhood. Along with all this history comes squeaky floors, small bathrooms, and a place that could use a good cleaning. I think the high ratings come mostly from Gene and his hospitality which he does well.

This place is a little gem with lots of history and old world charm. Which perfectly describes the owner Gene as well. He was friendly and accommodating. The place is clean and beautiful.

There are three rooms for rent, all on the bottom floor. The front room has a bathroom off the room and the room has direct access to the common and breakfast area.

The two rooms in the back of the home have their own outside entrances and share a bathroom. Access to the common and breakfast area is from the back outside door.

I rented both rooms in the rear for my family while we were visiting Salem. The rooms are adjoined by a hallway and separate doors to each room.

The rooms were cozy and clean. Gene checked in on us every day and we ran into him a few time walking around Marblehead.

The price was very reasonable and location was perfect. There is so much history just a stones throw in every direction.

Room Tip: If you don't want to share a bathroom with someone, choose the front room or rent out both rear rooms.

We stayed here for three nights in early October in order to be near Boston, as we were meeting up with family there for various activities. We really enjoyed the house (we rented two rooms), and Gene was a wonderful host! What we quickly found out was that we wished we could have spent more time in Marblehead, what a delightful community! We will definitely come back some time to do that, and will very likely try to stay at Brimblecomb again!

We stayed in the Isaac Mansfield room for 3 nights earlier this month and loved it! Gene is a fantastic host and very accommodating. The house is beautiful and Marblehead is just a great town to vacation to. We originally were planning on spending most of our time in Salem but ended up in Marblehead more. Salem is cool for a day trip but Marblehead definitely has more history to offer and breathtaking views. And the people are so friendly and welcoming. Loved it! Will most definitely be coming back.

Just the best. The welcome, the room, the breakfast, Gene, the history of the house, the cosiness, the position (as central Marblehead as possible).....
It's so hard to overstate just how lovely it is.
I will be back without any doubt although it is far from France to be sure but when you are onto a good thing you don't forget it.

Room Tip: Path Room is amazing
