Were looking for a couple of nights lodging around Boston. Glad to find this B&B. Ada & Don were personable and very helpful with information about the area & best route to Logan Airport. Breakfast with fresh fruit & heart shaped pancakes was very nice. Also nice to have a stocked coffee (thanks for having decaf!) & snack area upstairs along with the fridge available for a few personal items.
The location is very convenient to Salem Commons and the Salem attractions.
The only drawback I need to mention is the noise of Winter St from the upstairs, front bedroom. I was surprised how busy Winter St is. I was expecting more of a side street location. So if it's available, request a room on the back of the home. Otherwise, a wise buy and a nice stay.
