Don't be put off by the negative ratings, most of which date back years.
Not very prepossessing from the outside, the interior of this charming b&b is a delight to behold. We were on a tight schedule so didn't have a lot of time to spend in the beautifully furnished drawing room. Linda, the innkeeper, gave us a very warm welcome and was very attentive to her guests' needs and a mine of information. There were a lot of nice touches,such as tea or coffee constantly on tap in the breakfast room, and dishes of sweets and tempting cookies displayed in the public areas for guests could help themselves.
Minor quibbles, we would have preferred to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room. And, as avid readers, we would have appreciated lamps on either side of the bed.
This apart, I would certainly recommend the inn and the wonderful Tavern across the street where we ate dinner on both nights. And Old Salem itself is unmissable.
