This is a belated review for a lovely stay at the Stepping Stone in early November (I just forgot - busy time of year). I needed one night while visiting family in my former hometown and was happy that Matt and Kelly had space for me. My stay there felt more like staying with friends in their home rather than...

This is my 3rd trip to Salem for their annual Haunted Happenings event. I have traveled with my girlfriends in the past and took my husband for his first time experience this year. This B&B and its location is the best! During my first trip in 2001 we booked late (only 4 months in advance) and could find no rooms... More

If you are staying in Salem, this is the place to go. The Inn is a beautiful historic house that is walking distance to everywhere you'd want to go, but what really makes the place are owners Matt and Kelly. They are friendly, open and helpful; easy to talk to without being intrusive. And they have kitties. ;) The rooms... More

We always stay at an Inn or B&B's for our anniversary and decided to make a shift from Virginia to Salem. We had the BEST time! The charm of the 19thC architecture paired with the vintage posters and memorabilia was perfect. It sits right on the Commons in downtown Salem and is walking distance to everything. Matt and Kelly (and... More

The Stepping Stone Inn has a perfect location and FRIENDLIEST innkeepers!!! Located right on the Commons, you can walk to all of the best restaurants attractions, and to the harbor within minutes. The innkeepers are friendly, attentive, accommodating, and knowledgeable. You'll feel right at home in the comfortable rooms and atmosphere. Be sure to book well in advance!

My husband and I stayed at the Stepping Stone Inn for 4 nights in October. The owners, Matt and Kelly, were friendly and very accommodating to our needs. We enjoyed the complimentary Continental Breakfast, free parking and passes to the Witches' Museum. The Inn is beautiful, clean, and in the perfection location. We were able to walk to all destinations... More

I think his house has great potential as proven in the past, and if you are in salem with no options because of the crowds then it's not the worst choice. The fact that they chose to use paper products and very odd items in breakfast items is a bit much. You can definitely serve better baked goods and still... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Stepping Stone Inn in Salem, MA. We were pleasantly greeted by Matt, one of the owners, who promptly showed us around the quaint property. He told us a little history about the inn as well as filled us in on some of the updates he and his wife and co-owner, Kelly, have... More

I must say you couldn't ask for 2 more friendly hosts. This was our first time in Salem and the accommodations were just right for our 2 night 3 day stay. Complimentary Continental breakfast, free parking and passes to the Witches Museum. CLEAN as a whistle and 2 friendly cats that can best be described as "fluffy pillows". Book WAY... More

A lovely old house, with lots of character. We had a room facing the street and the "park" - in spite of my initial fears there was absolutely no problems with noise. We had a separate bathroom, which was fine. The B&B is conveniently located and a short walk from the centre, the PE Museum (excellent !), restaurants, etc. For... More
