I recently stayed at the Amelia Payson House and it was a wonderful experience. I was welcomed as if I was one of the family, met new people who were just as nice that have been coming there for 15 years and the house was big and spacious. I had two beds in my room. I loved the ambiance, Victorian... More

I highly recommend anyone planning a visit to Salem to reserve a room here. I've stayed at many B&B locations around the world and this is definitely one of the best. The proprietors, Ada May & Donald, are two of the nicest people you meet and go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home. During my stay... More

What a perfect stay! Not only is the house within easy walking distance to all the sights of Salem, it is a quiet, quaint and beautiful residence. Our room, complete with canopy bed, was decorated with lovely antiques and was immaculately clean. Innkeepers, Ada and Donald, were delightful and went out of their way to ensure that we had a...

We chose Amelia Payson House in Salem as our home for our three night stay in early September and are very glad we did. Ada and Don were very welcoming to us, Don even sharing his Scottish tea with me! We had a good sized room with a Queen and a single bed at the back of the house. The... More

Ada and Don welcomed us, gave us a map and we walked all over Salem from their fantastic B&B for a couple of days! Homemade scones, waffles, fresh fruit and berries and coffee met us on our two mornings and we stayed a bit late our last morning (we enjoyed their company so much) before we headed off to a... More

This being our first time at a B&B, we weren't sure what to expect. Ada and Don were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. It's conveniently located and was a short walk to all the Salem activities. The room was clean and quite spacious. The breakfast delicious. When we return to Salem, we will definitely be back...

This is a beautiful B&b run by a lovely and gracious couple....Our room was absolutely gorgeous boasting a four poster-canopied bed. Breakfast was ample, delicious and served family style which made for great conversation. Location is prime, making everything within walking distance. Hope to visit here again in the near future!
