My daughter and I travelled to Salem to visit and learn more about the history of this old town. We had never experienced a stay at a B&B before. The Hosts, Phil and Jocelyn, along with their house attendant, Allison were as charming as the house itself. Upon arrival, Allison checked us in and gave us a welcoming tour of... More

Stayed here one night on our way back to Nova Scotia. Excellent location just minutes from the downtown core. We arrived an hour before the 4 o'clock check in and were escorted to our rooms with no issues. Owners were super friendly and accommodating and this place easily met our expectations. We are self sufficient and don't like being catered... More

Jocelyn and Phil are absolutely great hosts! My friends and I had booked at their place for a girls trip and had a great experience. SO friendly, very clean and good location. Breakfast was great too. The hosts were very friendly (including the cats), and provided us with some good tips of things to see and do in Salem.

We spent four nights at the Henry Derby House in July 2015 with my family securing all three rooms. Jocelyn and Phil were charming hosts. Our room was well appointed and we had use of the living room and dining room too. The location was excellent for walking into down town Salem.

I recently stayed at the Henry Derby House, and my experience was every bit wonderful! From the moment we met Phil and Jocelyn (and beautiful baby Xander) they made us feel welcome! Actually, before we even got there, with what seemed like my million questions and multiple emails, Phil was patient, and kind, and never made me feel like I... More

The house is wonderful, very lived in which is a wonderful contrast with modern hotels. A very warm feel to it. The furniture fit with the house.The bedrooms give you the impression of stepping back in time. The beds a very comfortable and the breakfast great for a B&B. The place is very clean. The owners, Phillip and Jocelyn, are... More

This was really a home away from home. Such a wonderful house in a brilliant location. The owners were so kind and welcoming - it really made a difference to my extended stay in Salem. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here any time of year. Fantastic food stores near and around and the town centre is so close.... More

I stayed at the Henry Derby House this October just before Halloween and I have never been more impressed with a hotel before. The owners Philip and Jocelyn could not have been kinder, offering a personal and friendly stay to not only myself but all the guests. Every morning all the guests sat down for breakfast together, shared stories and... More

Thank you so much for the kind words Christina. It was a pleasure to host your stay in Salem. We had such great guests in October that it made running the B&B with our newborn a lot easier than expected. We look forward to having you back for many years to come! More

This gem is set within 5-10 minutes walking distance of ALL the local attractions; a rental car is a total waste of money. The home was beautifully modeled and the beds were comfy. The hosts were a dream! They were accommodating and reachable for any and all our needs. Breakfast was delicious with a special touch of homemade goodies. As... More

Sadly, I didn't have the chance to stay at the Henry Derby House itself, since it was booked, but I was taken off my feet when the owners so kindly offered me another acomodation. The place was beyond my expectations! As for the Henry Derby House itself, it's simply beautiful, warm and very inviting! It doesn't feel like a hotel,... More

Thank you so much for the great review Suzanne. Although we didn't have room for you to stay at the B&B we were happy to have you at our breakfast table during your stay in Salem. Hopefully next time you can stay with us here, just remember to book a full year in advance for October! More
