I've heard forever that the best place to stay in Salem is The Stepping Stone Inn and now I know why. Not only is this B&B in the heart of Salem, but John is probably one of the best innkeepers that I've ever met. I took my 2 nieces and nephew (ages 12 & 14) here about 2 weeks before Halloween. Although everyone told me that I waited too long to book, when I called, John told me that I lucked out since someone had just cancelled for the exact same days! We had off-street parking and a private balcony. Our bathroom was outside our room, but we simply didn't leave anything real important in there. The place was immaculate. The kids had never been to a B&B and I was really happy that I chose this one for their first. Our common room was in a situation that I could stay in bed with the door slightly open and see them watching their Saturday morning cartoons and they were able to rearrange the seating so that they could keep the volume down for our neighbors.
One of the best things about this B&B is the location. When I say that you can't pick a better spot, I'm not kidding. We were seriously in walking distance from EVERYTHING. The Stepping Stone is right next to the Salem Witch Museum which is the very first place we went upon arrival.
We were there during Bizarre Bazaar. It was a blast. Staying at The Stepping Stone Inn saved us from having to find parking no matter where we went and enabled us to get "home" real quick if we forgot something. I recommend staying here for anyone, no matter if you're in town for the historic sites, on business, visiting family, or just about anything. John's a wonderful, welcoming innkeeper and the place is beautiful yet charming. I look forward to staying here next time we visit.
