We were super lucky to get an available room because it is usually fully booked. The house was clean and tidy and made us feel at home. There are only 3 rooms available in the house and they are all named after famous "witches". We stayed in Rebecca Nurse room; it has a comfortable queen sized bed and is well furnished. Chocolate, coffee and tea are available right outside the room. Bob was a wonderful host and he cooked very delicious breakfast and made the best bread. He also sat down for breakfast with us and chatted with us throughout. Location of the house is very good and we were able to walk to all the places of interest. I will definitely stay with Bob again if I go back to Salem. Highly recommended!!

We stayed at the Morning Glory B & B Veterans Day weekend. This is our second stay at the Morning Glory. We stayed in the Rebecca Nurse room again. Since the weather was so cold, we were able to use the fireplace in the room. The bed was very comfortable. The location is great, we were able to walk to everything in Salem. Breakfast was very good, shared at a common table with the other guests. The owner, Bob was helpful with things to do in the area. The shared sitting area on the second floor had coffee and mugs available, information and books about Salem. Bob also had photo albums of the Inn. Also available in the sitting area was a computer and refrigerater stocked with water bottles. We would definately be back again to visit The Moring Glory Bed and Breakfast. Thanks Bob & Willow, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Darlene and thank you for your wonderful post to tripadvisor. It is always a satisfying reward to welcome back guests over the years. Although names may often escape me, I am pretty good at remembering faces and when I see a familiar face walk through the front door of Morning Glory, it's like welcoming back an old friend. Thank you Darlene for all of your kind words and for your wish for a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you both enjoyed your holiday as well. I look forward to welcoming you back and until then, I send you both my very best! Warn regards, Bob & Willow

How can someone put into words how amazing our stay was at the Morning Glory B&B. This is our 2nd stay at this stellar Inn. The rooms and grounds are kept immaculate. The breakfast is phenomenal. Bob is the perfect host. Oh, and Willow, how we love her. Such a sweet loving guardian of the inn. The roof top deck adds a perfect place to peek and gaze at water. We will always try to stay here any time we are in Salem. It books up fast. We were so happy to be able to book a few days here. Can't wait to go back.

Hello Kim and thank you for such a beautiful post. I honestly don't know where to start in thanking you for such kind words so please accept my humble, all inclusive "Thank You". You and Sandy are truly two special people with such kind hearts and I was delighted when you walked through my doors again. Willow was thrilled with the basket of toys you showered her with too! Oh, and she also loved the belly rubs! I know I will be seeing you girls again so until that time, I send you both my very best! Warm regards, Bob & Willow

Bob makes a fantastic breakfast! My room, the Elizabeth Howe room, was absolutely perfect. I had my own separate access with a private porch and access to the main patio. I will only stay at this B&B when I’m in Salem! Highly recommend staying here.

Hi Jeff and many thanks for your wonderful post. It was a pleasure to have you return and spend another stay at Morning Glory. Repeat guests, or what I would rather refer to as friends, are a reminder and a validation that I must be doing something right. So glad to read you rate the homemade breakfasts as "fantastic" and the comfort of your guest room as "perfect". This made my day. I hope you can continue to make Morning Glory your home away from home whenever you come to visit historic Salem, MA. Until the next time, I send you my very best! Warm regards, Bob Willow

We traveled to Salem from Minnesota for the second year now for Halloween. This place was so lovely. So warm and welcoming! Bob is an amazing host to his guests. We had everything we needed. The comfort of the room was incredible. He makes a delicious breakfast every morning! I can’t recommend the Morning Glory BnB enough. I can’t wait to come back! Thank you Bob and Willow!!
