Peter & Suzanne Conway became innkeepers back in 1982 when they purchased their first inn on Nantucket Island. They purchased 58 Washington Street in 1985 and after a year of work, opened the Harbor Light Inn. Six years later they purchased the building next door, connected the two houses, and turned it into the Inn it is today!
Peter’s background has been in real estate management, commercial sales and appraisals. Suzanne was a Registered Nurse in labor and delivery when she met Peter, but soon became enthralled with the hospitality business. Suzanne oversees supplying the inn and with her penchant for design, the constant redecorating of the inn. Both avid boaters, they enjoy getting out on the water whenever they can. If you need to fill some empty hours, just ask Peter about anything nautical.
By 2014, they started thinking seriously about the future of the inn which is where their daughter Carolyn came into the picture. At the time, Carolyn was living (with her now husband Ben) in Maui, HI and working at the Four Seasons Resort as a Wedding Manager. Carolyn always had an idea she would end up back in Marblehead so after six years of working for Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, she gave her notice, packed up her surfboard, and moved back to Massachusetts. Carolyn now runs the day-to-day operations of the Inn and enjoys using her 5-star training to further her family’s legacy.
