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!

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
