The owner provides a very friendly, welcoming stay. Feels like you have been invited to stay at a family member's home. We used to live in a historic home, so we felt very comfortable with the quirks and charm that come with a home built well over a century ago. The owner kindly asks guests to turn off the TV after 11 pm, and that is much appreciated since sound travels easily in older homes with hardwood floors. It is evident from the first moment that Mr. Brick truly wants you to enjoy your stay. Breakfast worked well for all since it is laid out and ready between 8:30 and 10 -- no waiting. My daughter was pleased with the cereal selection, and I enjoyed the hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruit, and tasty apple cinnamon bread. Pleasantly surprised to have wi-fi available, which was great for planning the next day's visit. Can't beat the location -- next door to the Salem Witch Museum, around the corner from the Visitor Center and Essex Street, and just a block down from a garage where you receive a pass to park safely. Reasonably priced for the location.
