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

This was our first time in a B and B and we loved it. The location is within easy walking distance to all of Salem's attractions. The hosts are second generation owners of the Henry Derby House and they gladly share the history of their beautiful establishment. We stayed in the Yellow Room which was beautifully decorated. Breakfast was muffins,... More

Stayed the week before halloween and it was terrific. Peg's son and wife are now the innkeepers at the Henry Derby House and they are absolutely wonderful. They made us feel like we were home. They have kept the place exactly the same with the same warm atmosphere. The breakfast was good. And our room an absolute delight. Their assistant,... More

The location is splendid, the rooms are beautiful, and the owners are an absolute dream. A delicious breakfast was coupled with engaging discussion about both the resident house spirit, Sarah, and the fascinating history of the area. Not to mention the absolute wonderful suggestions made by the owners as to where to dine. A truly magical experience for any personage... More

The Henry Derby House is a fabulous home to stay in for a few days. We stayed two nights in the Red Room and our friends stayed in the Mauve Room. We each had a private bath. Each morning we had a pretty extensive continental breakfast with Phil, the owner of the house. Both he and his wife Jocelyn are... More

Stayed at the H Derby House in historic Salem, when my girlfriend and I went for a short romantic escape in Boston in August, 2014. Getting to the House was straightforward, as was parking nearby. We were greeted by a friendly host and were pleased to discover a comfortable room. The house is pretty old, which gives it a lot... More
