We love coming to Salem in the fall and made a good decision to stay here this time. Matt and Kelly were very friendly and hospitable. The inn is in a prime location next to the Salem Witch Museum. We stayed in the Big Sur room which was very nice, overlooking the Common. The only concern was that it isn't... More

I know that the owners bought this place just a few months ago, but they've got their work cut out for them. Our room was recently painted-- but only the walls, not the trim. Our bed seemed on the verge of collapse and was so close to the wall that one of us had to climb over the other to... More

WOW! What a wonder stay we had at this Inn. It is located in the perfect spot. We parked and did not go back for the car until we left. Were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. The Inn was lovely, and the owners were wonderful. I will not stay any place else when we go back.... More

From the first emails and phone calls Matt was helpful to explain the location of the inn to main attractions and availability of parking. Because I have a bad back he gave us the most accessible room. It turned out to be the Boston room in the back which was very quite for afternoon naps to recharge for the evenings.... More

I was in the Boston area for a long weekend, and I wanted to spend a special day in Salem for my birthday, so I decided to book a night in a B&B to get the full experience. First off, I looked at a lot of options online for B&B's in the area and while most of them seemed nice... More

On a last minute whim we decided to spend a night in Salem. Matt at the Stepping Stone had a one room vacancy and was very accomodating. He added a twin blow up mattress to the room for us because there were three adults. The two big cats were fun, the atmosphere was comfortable and charming, and the morning breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed at the Stepping Stone Inn for a long weekend in August, and we can’t say enough good things about our experience! The innkeepers, Matt and Kelly, were very friendly and made us feel at home right away. They were so genuine and really wanted to help us make the most of our stay. They made... More

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
