We stayed there for an evening as we had a wedding in town. Great stay and so close to everything. If you are looking for a spot right downtown the stepping stone is right next door to the Salem Witch Museum, the owners were amazing! Great job..

I just love the Stepping Stone Inn and Matt & Kelly! Matt took time to show us around and gave us the history of the house. Matt gave us great recommendations on sites to see and places to eat. And he turned us on to our favorite dish at Turner's Seafood ... Lobster Butter Soup (aka lobster bisque). Thanks Matt... More

When we were making our travels to Salem, I was trying to find a place to stay. I've never stayed in a bed in breakfast but I've always wanted to. The prices were excellent, especially compared to surrounding areas. Matt and Kelly, the owners, are awesome. They gave us advice on things to do and places to eat. They were... More

The Stepping Stone Inn is ideally located in Salem, with just about everything within walking distance. Character abounds in this lovely old building, and the hosts are most accommodating. Would definitely stay there again.

What a wonderful place to stay! This was the first time my wife and I had ever stayed in a B&B. Owners Matt and Kelly have set the bar awfully high for anywhere else. They are really committed to friendly and comprehensive customer service. They were eager to help us make the most of our trip by providing us Salem-newbies... More

Matt and Kelly are great people and take good care of their guests. I loved my stay and would book again if I have fortune to revisit Salem. You truly cannot beat the location and the cheery paint colors mixed with tasteful antiques really make the inn special. No flower wallpaper=priceless! Rock on Kelly and Matt!

It was my first time in staying in a bed and breakfast. I had no idea what to expect from staying there at first but we were greeted with smiles and It felt like home from walking into the door each time we went back to our rooms and Matt and Kelly always gave us suggestions for what to do...

Great place to stay in Salem. First, the location is excellent. We parked the car Friday morning when we got there and didn't get in it again until we left on Sunday. Matt and Kelly are great hosts - very friendly and good recommendations on food choices in the area. They really want you to have a good time and... More

Absolute best location in Salem! Everything in the city was within walking distance!! The owners were so friendly, helpful and hospitable. They were willing to help out anytime we had a question about traveling around Salem and Boston. They were a huge part of why we enjoyed our vacation so much! We loved the city of Salem and the Stepping... More

What a great location directly across from Salem Commons Park, just a few steps away from the pedestrian mall and a 5 minute walk to the restaurants on the water, not to mention Captain Dusty's Ice Cream shop. The rooms were eclectic and interesting, and Matt and Kelly were wonderful hosts, making sure that I got my muffin before I... More
