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

Great place to say. Extremely hospitable and helpful. Super charming and right in the head of Salem! I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly they were and I can't wait to go back again. They made my experience very memorable. My entire group loved Salem and Stepping Stone Inn was a huge part of that experience.

My boyfriend and I originally wanted to go to Salem for Valetine's Day but we got snowed out. Since it was Valentine's Day, the inn had a special package for the holiday. They were SO nice in letting us know about the weather and letting us movie our stay to a later date and even moved the package too! So... More

If you find yourself in Salem, MA this is a great B & B to stay in. Homey, welcoming, warm and inviting, the Stepping Stone Inn sums up what the New England Bed And Breakfast guy. I normally stay in hotels when on the road, but this Inn was recommended to me by a friend in the area. And they... More

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...
