This beautiful inn is right on Lake Salem. Our hosts were warm, welcoming and informative. The views and ambiance stunning. We were made to feel at home and will definitely return. I highly recommend.

We stayed 5 nights and loved every minute. The B&B was beautiful and spotlessly clean. Joe and Mo are excellent hosts, who went well out of their way to make us feel welcome and make sure we had a wonderful time. Canoeing and kayaking on the lake was peaceful and incredibly scenic. We loved the loons and bald eagle! We... More

This was our second time staying with Mo and Joe at Lake Salem Inn. Once again the hospitality was exceptional. Breakfast was amazing and the dinner we had was top notch. The grounds are meticulous and rooms are beautiful. You will not find a better bed and breakfast around!

We had a great one night stay with Mo and Joe as our enthusiastic hosts. Beautiful, well-taken care of grounds, great light off the lake and comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces to hang out. We'd recommend.

We spent three days with Mo and Joe at their B&B. Wow what an experience. It was by far the cleanest and nicest B&B we've stayed in over the last few years if not the best. We stayed in the Zen room which was truly amazing day and night as you could lay and watch the stars till you fell... More

Beautiful home in a lovely, quiet, immaculate, lakeside setting. Owners are so friendly and accommodating. Their breakfast was fabulous this morning we decided to book dinner with them tonight and couldn't be happier! Rack of Lamb and crab stuffed chicken breast both seasoned amazingly and cooked perfectly. Jo and his wife Maureen 'Mo' are beyond professionals, they are the perfect... More

We just spent two nights in this immaculate inn and couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. It's extremely clean, artfully decorated, and our room (The Library Room) was completely comfortable: soft sheets, comfortable reading chairs and lights, windows opening on three sides of the house, and even night lights--a small but important safety detail that most hotels and B&B's...

We had one night in the Library Room which is large, attractive and comfortable. The room is just off the kitchen/entrance area and even very quiet sounds travel very clearly, from our hosts almost whispered talk in kitchen and from our ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was a small serve of pineapple with a few raspberries, scrambled egg on half a croissant... More

I am so sorry you chose not to give us a higher rating. Our breakfasts and more than satisfying to most of our guests. The Croissants are very large and therefore we cut them in half, since after 15 years of experience we learn that most guests don't eat the other half and we then have to throw the wasted... More

We only had one night but it was well worth it. We stayed in the Wyoming room with a great view of the lawn and lake. Joe was very nice to meet and he gave us the tour of the property and room. The room was very private away from the main house. The only thing we would have liked... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in fall of 2013 after reading many of these reviews. I hesitated to write this review bec I see how Mo responds defensively to even gently couched negatives in reviews, but here it is. This was the oddest & most uncomfortable B&B experience we've ever had, and we've had many. Much like a few... More
