My wife, niece and I went to the Boston/Salem area for a "history trip". I found Joan on Tripadvisor and saw she had very good reviews. All I can say is Joan was great. She was so nice. She made it an enjoyable week. Joan's is not what I would call a "traditional" bed and breakfast, but we would not... More

We stayed here fall of 2015. It is like going to stay with your grandmother or favorite aunt. Everything is very clean. Joan makes an excellent breakfast. Try her homemade freezer strawberry/rhubarb jam - delicious. We were 2 woman traveling alone but felt very safe here. It is close to Salem. Very good price. Joan makes you feel very welcome.

My husband was searching for a reasonable place to stay within a short drive of Manchester by the Sea so we could visit with family during a short stay. He came across Joan's Bed and Breakfast and as luck would have it, she had just had a cancellation. We could not believe how convenient it was to 128 and Salem... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in July, fairly last minute with my two teenage daughters and it was just wonderful. Joan is warm, attentive and generous and we were extremely comfortable and felt very welcome. This is a traditional B&B in the sense that you get amazing homemade breakfasts, and that makes the price just about unbeatable. It's true... More

We were looking for accommodations around Boston but not in the middle of the city. It seemed that every hotel was booked in the surrounding areas but when we looked up Peabody, Joan's showed up. She went out of her way to prepare the room at the last minute and suggested a local Italian American restaurant for dinner. This is... More

Joan was very welcoming and is an excellent cook. Be sure to try her jams and ask for the baked apple! This is not the traditional b&b- it is her one- floor home. So we shared her bathroom and our only privacy was in our room. But overall the stay was very nice and the value was great.

A warm cozy home run by the owner Joan. Comfy beds, good food, and good company. Close to all amenities as well. Really enjoyed the "home away from home" feel here, would definitely stay again if in the area.

This is not a traditional B&B; this is a residential home. There are 3 rooms to rent, and two of them share a bathroom but one has a private bath. The shared bathroom has a rather small shower stall which may be an issue for some people. Rooms and bathroom were neat and clean. The room we stayed in had... More

We were traveling from the Philadelphia area to Acadia National Park, ME and wanted an interesting midway point to break up the drive. This was the perfect location, close to the highway for the continuation of our trip and close to the T for our day in Boston. Joan was very welcoming upon arrival and gave us suggestions for dinner... More

We stayed here last year and I am surprised that there are so many excellent ratings. Joan is a lovely woman but her B and B is nothing to rave about. It is fairly clean but dated and if you stay in the double room, you share the bathroom with Joan. Breakfast was okay and she makes you welcome but... More
