We were passing through Salem doing a tour of New England and decided to do a stopover but we hadn't booked anywhere. I'd researched a couple of options and this was one that took my liking and didn't disappoint. We were greeted warmly by Donald (the owner) and as luck would have it they had a room for the night. Check-in process fuss-free and quick with Donald explaining how to access the properties off street parking and giving local information we might find useful. Our room was delightful, tastefully decorated with nice linens and towels. There was a TV in the room with satellite channels and free wi-if access which we had no problems accessing. The bathroom was clean with nice toiletries and good size towels. Sleep quality was good, nice comfy bed but stand-out thing of the stay was the breakfast we enjoyed at Ada's friendly and very well stocked table. Breakfast is much like an extended family affair. One large farmhouse style table which all guests use and are joined by their hosts. It was simply one of the nicest breakfasts I've had! Lovely homemade scones, great preserves, loads of fresh fruit and good conversation with the other guests.
Would definitely recommend this B&B, lovely!
