Relatively no-frills room, but clean with en suite. Very convenient to all Salem attractions. Lovely sitting room with helpful Salem information. Breakfast was good with many options. Would certainly stay here again.

We were lucky to find a vacancy here late afternoon. Our host was very helpful re parking, sightseeing etc. Bathroom was not ensuite. Next door to Witch Museum, a bit noisy. Breakfast was good. We felt the building needed an extensive spruce up.

We stayed at the Stepping Stone for 4 nights during the first week of September and found it to be a wonderful stay. The Inn is centrally located, next to the Witch Museum and a five minute walk to the Peabody, so you do not need your car to get around Salem. It is very clean and well kept. John... More
