Our first visit to Salem and Nancy was amazing!!! She was so knowledgeable about the area and events going on. Nancy has kept the house immaculate and gives it a feeling like you're coming home for a visit. She caters to each individual guest and takes time to talk to them and ask how their day was and how their... More

Disclaimer: we stayed Oct 17-18 and this was the first weekend for the new owner, Nancy. My husband and I lucked out in getting a room here. We called around at the end of September and we were able to get a room at the Amelia Payson House. I think this was pure luck because of the new ownership as... More
