Karen has meticulously restored the spectacular “doll house mansion” (her young niece’s words) with such loving attention to detail that you are seeing the home in its former glory. Even her beautiful breakfast is served on stunning antique dishes. Come for Salisbury charm and stay for Karen’s hospitality and stories. The Turn of the Century B&B is a destination in itself. If it’s not a busy day and Karen has a moment, she can tell you the amazing details of the transformation from a near-ruin to the authentically restored gem which is a unique, cozy and extraordinary place to stay. And please, Karen, do that cookbook soon so I can make your zucchini chocolate muffins at home!

Simply one of the best B&Bs I have stayed in. Karen pays attention to every last detail. She is amazing! The room was very comfortable. A lot of rocking chairs on the wrap around porch which made for a delightful place to sit while eating dinner. Breakfast was incredibly tasty. And Karen is an awesome person with the best stories! AND she gave me scrumdillyious cookies and cold water as parting gifts! GO! ENJOY! I will be back!!!

We had a fantastic stay. Karen is a most gracious host. She recommended a wonderful restaurant for dinner , La Cava , which use to be a church. It was excellent so we actually went back again the next night! We told Karen we were renovating a 112 year old house we just bought the 7 months ago . She took the time to tell us about her renovation experiences and Ben took us through the house room by room and told us what she did during her renovation. If you love old houses and wonderful host I highly recommend the Turn of the Century Victorian B & B.

We recently had a wonderful overnight stay at this beautiful and historic home in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance of downtown Salisbury. Karen provided exceptional hospitality to me and my elderly mother, going above and beyond to ensure our physical comfort and peace of mind. She clearly takes great pride in the meticulously restored 1905 house, and was happy to share historic and architectural details, much to our delight. She is a fantastic chef, so breakfast was a real treat. And in these challenging pandemic times, she went to great length to make us feel safe and secure, and even set up a perfect en-suite table for us to bring in our take-away dinner from a local restaurant, since we were not comfortable dining-in at the restaurant. Brava, Karen, on your exceptional inn, and we hope to see you again soon!

We had to unexpectedly go to Salisbury to see a family member who is quite ill. Since we had no time to plan we started looking for a place to stay when we arrived in Salisbury about 4:30 pm. Karen was gracious and kind allowing us to check in late that evening after we were at the hospital. She asked about breakfast time allowing us to sleep in for a little while. She made a fabulous breakfast and got us started on the day. Since we were in town for just one day she sent us away with bottled water and cookies for the return trip home. Karen allowed us to be the weary travelers that we were and gave us a wonderful evening of rest. I am looking forward to staying with her again.

We had the joy of staying at Turn of the Century Bed & Breakfast last weekend, we were in town for us to attend my baby shower. My husband and I stayed for one night (I wish we could have stayed a little longer). Karen is a wonderful inn keeper and host. Her home is beautifully and tastefully furnished and decorated, it's almost as if you've taken a step back in time. The work that Karen put into restoring this old Victorian beauty is incredible. Turn of the Century is a breath taking bed and breakfast. My husband and I had a delicious dinner at City Tavern and a lovely evening admiring historic Salisbury. Our room (The English Room) was extremely comfortable, it was the best night's sleep that we had ever gotten away from home. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, filling, and refreshing! Upon checking out Karen gave us two bottles of cold water and a goody bag including one of her delicious chocolate zucchini muffins, two tasty cookies for the road, and an adorable pair of pink and white ruffle socks for our upcoming bundle of joy. When ever my husband and I need a place to stay in the Salisbury area, we will be staying here. I would 110% recommend staying at Turn of the Century Bed & Breakfast to anyone who asks. You really are missing out if you don't!

This magnificently decorated home is a step back into history, because every item in this restored home has a story. Karen, the owner, has painstakingly selected every item in the restoration of this gorgeous home. Her wealth of knowledge about the property and the neighborhood is astounding. Breakfast was served daily and was wonderful. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a B&B, and I look forward to staying there again.

This lovely 1905 house has been restored to National Register standards to create an elegant and wonderfully comfortable B&B – the ideal choice for anyone visiting Salisbury. The innkeeper Karen Windate is intelligent, thoughtful, attentive and responsive; she went out of her way to make us comfortable in all respects. Each room has been designed with great care and historical integrity, offering well-chosen antique furnishings, plush linens, and attractive color schemes. Each room has a private bath, ingeniously incorporated into the 100-year old setting. Free Wi-Fi worked well, and ample parking is available in the rear. Breakfasts were delicious with an inventive menu each day, customized to meet our dietary requests and plated in gorgeous visual presentations. Conversation at the breakfast table was wide-ranging and fascinating. Karen offered helpful advice and extensive information on local dining, historic sites, arts and culture, and the intriguing history of Salisbury. Highly recommended.
