My husband and I stayed in the Salem Room (attic room) at The Stepping Stone Inn from Sunday July 13 - Wednesday July 16, 2014. Matt and Kelly are gracious and friendly hosts, so much so that it felt like we knew them for years, and were helpful with directing us to great local restaurants (Bella Verona was delicious!) and...

My family & I stayed at the Inn last week and had a great time! The location is in the central part of town and easy walking distance to all the sites. Matt & Kelly were very accommodating to our two small children and we will definitively stay here again!

Wonderful house! Tha Inn is at walking distance to the train station, to the town centre and to restaurants. Literally next door to the witches museum. We had a very warm welcome and lots of suggestions for what to do, where to go and where to eat. We hope we'll have the chance to stay there again in our next... More

It is a beautiful ancient house, really quiet. Matt and Kelly are so nice! They care a lot about their guests and do everything possible for us to make it the perfect vacation. We had a wide variety of food at breakfast and they have hot chocolate !

I highly recommend staying at the Stepping Stone. Matt & Kelly are kind, gracious hosts. They are always ready to recommend a good restaurant (we tried them all - they were right!) or an attraction. They have a beautiful inn and treat their guests like family. If you are planning a trip to Salem, you can't go wrong with the... More

Staying at the Stepping Stone Inn was like staying with friends...Matt and Kelly were so gracious and helpful. We tried all their recommendations and loved every one of them. We appreciate them sharing their wonderful historic home with us.

I don't take recommendations lightly, and actually don't often write them, so it is with complete confidence that I heartily recommend Salem's adorable Stepping Stone Inn, run by welcoming, accommodating, and super friendly Matt and Kelly. When we booked, Matt gave us a phone tour of the entire Inn to help us choose the best room. Upon our arrival, we... More

Stepping Stone Inn is a beautiful historic building located next to the Salem Witch Museum in walking distance to all the visitor sites in Salem. Matt and Kelly are a wonderful couple and bring a welcoming family feeling to the inn. They have named and themed the rooms based on important places in their lives and have wonderful stories to...

One of the great pleasures of travelling is the people you meet. These folks are smart, hard-working, interesting, and gracious. Big thanks for guiding me to the parking space via phone. My room was on the top floor and it was a lovely experience. I plan to return.

My experience from beginning to end was very easy. I was met by the innkeeper Matt who was very gracious. The B&B is kept up very nice and the rooms were cozy. We stayed in the Big Sur room and we had a neat view of the park and Church where the museum is now. I would definitely reccomend staying... More
