“An absolutely adorable house with an attached apartment that has a private entry through a gate into the back yard. Karen and Robert clearly take excellent care of their home - it shows in the well-manicured yard, maintained pathways, and gorgeous landscaping. When I entered the apartment, I found plenty of open space, a large living area, a 4-person dining set, and a small kitchenette with full refrigerator. There is also a fireplace and a set of doors onto the deck. The bedroom has a desk, dresser, and a huge closet. The closet could literally be another small bedroom - pop an inflatable mattress up in there and the kids can have a blast! The bathroom has plenty of space, as well, with a large shower. Rails are on the wall beside the toilet and in the shower. Everything is open and could be easily navigated with a walker/wheelchair. The kitchen area has the full refrigerator, sink with garbage disposer, microwave, Keurig, toaster, toaster oven, 1 double hotplate, and 1 single hotplate. Utensils and dinnerware for 4 are included. Plenty of brochures and informational booklets are available to help with things to do in the area. The house is situated close enough to either walk to or have food delivered. Overall, this stay was excellent and, if I were to return to Marblehead, I would rather stay here over anywhere else!”
Beautiful hardwood floors in the living room, study and bedroom. Apartment is very roomy and the hearth in in the living room is one of the apartment's best features. It is a very open layout with no doors between the rooms. (Though of course the bathroom has one.) Walk to cafes, restaurants and the sea. Minutes to bus and commuter rail. In the heart of the city! Modest unit but cozy and convenient. Rustic in a good way. It's in the heart of everything that is interesting about Salem.
“This is in an ideal location to walk to everything Salem has to offer! Great communication by host, and thoughtful touches such as coffee and snack bars were available if needed. Thankfully it was also equipped with A/C’s as I visited I’m a little heat wave. Keep in mind it’s an old historic home, and as such the walls are very thin so noise travels easily.”
My home is minutes from downtown historic Salem and 2 miles at the most from historic Marblehead. I live in a quiet community with a few great local restaurants in walking distance if you arrive late and haven't eaten. Downtown Salem is full of restaurants and great landmarks/happenings. Easy access to Boston by train or the Salem ferry. Or if you want to explore the northern coast by day, my home would be a perfect location from which to do so!
“Lovely house that is only around a mile from downtown Salem. Very dog friendly. Very comfortable bed with soft linens and Pillows. A short walk to a local pub that has excellent burgers. Our host was away so we had house to ourselves. Very nice house. Very friendly host and incredible value!”
