I stayed at the Stepping Stone in early September and found it to be very comfortable. The owners are both welcoming, friendly and knowledgable. Their suggested restaurants and attractions were all right on. I stayed in the Salem room in the attic. It was a lovely shade of purple, it was a cozy size and perfectly appointed. I was pleasantly... More

The Stepping Stone Inn is located right next door to the Witch Museum and within walking distance to most everything in Salem. You can't beat the location. I just parked the car and was off on foot to explore. Matt & Kelly are courteous, kind and accommodating hosts. Prior to my visit, they e-mailed me a detailed info sheet about... More

This B&B is central to everything wonderful about Salem! This stately manor was built for a naval officer and it is a treat to stay here. The location puts it within short walking distance of the waterfront, the Peabody Essex Museum, great little shops and dining spots. The rooms are comfortable, nicely decorated, and very affordable. Matt and Kelly are... More

Stayed at the stepping stone in about 2 weeks ago for a friends wedding. This place is located right in the heart of all of the attractions. The movie theater, peabody museum were 2 blocks away. The witch museum is right next door. The owners are friendly and helpful individuals. Even after we checked out and had to get ready... More

I recently stayed at the Stepping Stone Inn and it was fantastic. Perfect location, great architecture, sea-captain's rooms, and owners/operators that are very accomodating, but respectful of your privacy. This gem is literally next to the Witch Museum and across from the Commons. Look out any window and see Salem -as she was! And parking is just steps away (you... More

My wife and I decided to take a weekend holiday from Providence in August and head up to the north shore for the heck of it. Needing a place to stay, we decided on the SteppingStone and it is a REALLY nice B&B. Matt & Kelly (and their adorably friendly cats Youk & Pedey...they're Red Sox fans, yay!) just bought... More

I stayed with my brother and mother in the Washington DC room in mid August 2014. We were provided with an extra blow up mattress for a small fee. The room was clean and super cute. We missed our train from Boston to Salem and so we had to check in late. Matt and Kelly kindly received us late without... More

Recently stayed with one of my friends on a roadtrip and had a fantastic time. Was only for one night :( innkeepers were extremely welcoming and gave us our own key, which was useful when we went on a ghost tour from 10 to midnight. In walking distance of everything!! Room was smaller than it looked in the photo (we... More

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!
