Wonderfully warm and welcoming bed and breakfast. Beautifully and lovingly built by the owner. The room (Rebecca Nurse) was perfect, the open fire warming, the four poster bed comfortable and the bed covers a delight. Breakfast was spectacular.

Hello Darren and many thanks for your wonderful review of Morning Glory! We very much enjoyed having you and Suzanne stay with us and we very much appreciate your kind words! We are happy you enjoyed thumbing through our 'before, during & after' photo ablum of the early renovations at Morning Glory. It's hard to believe that those renovations took place sixteen years ago; how time flies! Happy to hear as well that you enjoyed the cozy fireplace in the Rebecca Nurse room. It certainly takes the chill off a cold January evening! We hope to see you again at some future date and until then, we send you our very best!

Warm regards,
Bob & Marcel

Morning Glory is a lovely place to stay to partake of all that Salem has to offer. The period home is well appointed and the room was charming and comfortable. Bob and Marcel are gracious hosts. I am happy recommend this bed and breakfast!

Room Tip: I stayed in the Elizabeth Howe room which was lovely with a nice view of the water.

Hello Claire and thank you so much for submitting such a lovely review of our B&B! So happy you enjoyed your stay, albeit brief, and we truly enjoyed talking with you over breakfast! The harbor views from the Elizabeth Howe room are very soothing and we hope you are able to revisit with us in warmer weather to relax and enjoy those harbor views again! We send you our very best!

We stayed at the Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast in March of 2011. The house was stunning and we really appreciated that the hosts weren't overbearing as they can be sometimes at a B&B. We were greeted by a note on the door and a key and since our room had a separate entrance, we came and went as we pleased. We were a bit surprised that breakfast wasn't a full hot meal, but the granola was good and there was a selection of fruit and home-made baked beans which worked fine for us. Some guests chose to linger and visit with each other around the table and we were happy to eat and get on with our day of exploring.

Hi Johanna and thank you for taking time to submit your review of Morning Glory regarding your stay with us 10 months ago. So happy to hear that you found our B&B 'stunning' and that you also found our location to be 'great'. We are sorry to hear that our home made breakfast did not meet your expectations. We are not sure if by 'full hot meal' you are referring to eggs, but in any event, we do state very clearly on our website that our breakfast is 'deluxe continental' and that we, by city ordinance, are not allowed to serve eggs. All of our breakfast pastries, cheese bread granola, etc...are all home made. We are happy to hear that you did enjoye Marcel's home made hot baked beans. It is unfortunate that you were not able to enjoy Marcel's home made french toast or home made crepes. Your oversight was unfortunate but we hope that you will visit with us again in the future and we wish you our best.

Warm regards,
Bob & Marcel

Bob and Marcel are amazing hosts! I emailed these fine folks months before our trip asking for some sight-seeing ideas, they responded within a day or two with some very helpful suggestions. Already expecting a great experience my girlfriend and I found that we were treated far better than any chain hotel ever could at the Morning Glory. Breakfast was wonderful as the food was delicious; I’ve read many reviews about their cheesy bread but their pancakes amazed us the most. After spending the whole day walking around Salem we were delighted to find a plate of baked goods waiting for us in the common room. The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and spotless; my girlfriend and I loved how cozy the beds were.
Bob and Marcel are extremely generous people. Bob offered to drive us to and from the train station for our day trip into Boston; we accepted a ride there but decided to walk home on our return (btw Bob’s driving is superb). After checking out of the bed and breakfast our hosts allowed us to leave our car in their parking area for the day while we did some last minute shopping. Staying at the Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast is like staying with family.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Bridget Bishop room; at $125/night we felt it was well worth the price. The water...

The Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast soared above and beyond our expectations. The owners parents were taking care of the Bed and Breakfast while he was away, and you couldn't ask for more down to earth and sweet people. We stayed in the Sarah Good Suite, and it was perfect. The living room, bathroom, and bedroom were all top of the line and it was always super clean. Also, we were on the third floor and had access to the roof top deck, which gave you a beautiful view of both Salem and the harbor. The Breakfast was also amazing each morning. The Cheese Bread that the owner makes is absolutely addicting, as a matter of fact, talking about it right now is making me want to go back immediately. Another important piece was the fact that all of the other guests staying at the Morning Glory were all personable and friendly making it a positive experience and comfortable atmosphere while eating breakfast at the dining room table in the morning. There was never one things that we ask that was not answered or investigated to the best of ability. I would not hesitate about staying at the Morning Glory again, and I hope that opportunity comes sooner than later. The Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast made me and my wife's Honeymoon an unforgettable one, and I could not be more thankful for that. I cannot wait to stay there again and visit my NEW favorite vacationing place, Salem, Massachusetts, many more times to come in the near future. Thank you again.

Hi Greg and many thanks for taking time out to submit such a great review of your stay at Morning Glory! So happy to hear that you enjoyed every aspect of your stay and that our B&B provided an 'unforgettable' honeymoon for you and your new wife! The Sarah Good Suite on the third floor is indeed a spacious and yet very private retreat. Breakfast time at Morning Glory around the large country table is always full of laughs! It's a great way to get to know your fellow guests and share stories with one another. As a matter of fact, many lasting friendships have been forged between guests over breakfast. We wish you and your new bride all the very best and we do look forward to your return visit!

Warm regards,
Bob & Marcel

Stayed here for our honeymoon the week of 11.13.11. Everything was absolutely perfect! The innkeepers actually weren't there when we visited but the parents of one were, and they were the most sweetest helpful welcoming couple. Everything at the Morning Glory was perfect! The location, cleanliness, rooms! The food was amazing. The cheese bread is to die for! The decor and home in general are so modern and yet so homey with the Salem theme and touch! I would highly recommend staying here to everyone! The price, service, comfort, location I could go on and on! I have nothing bad to say about here! My husband and I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts and this by far was the best one! We talk about it all the time! Thank you for helping make our Honeymoon amazing! The perfect ending to our Halloween themed wedding! Can't wait to visit again! Jamie LeBeau
