A bit better than we had expected which is always a nice surprise. Having slept in many, many B&B's over the years and in various countries, This rates highly. Neither modern nor glitzy, it is very clean, in excellent repair with a comfy sense of being lived in - a home. Amenities are also good but could benefit from more comfortable reading chairs, maybe a lounger or at least something to sit back in. Kitchen is accessible and presumably is for use by guests. Breakfast is in the kitchen which has its drawbacks but our breakfast of spinach and cheese omelettes, fruit, yoghurt and muffins was quite satisfying. Excellent off street parking is a huge plus as is walking distance to several sightseeing spots. Our hostess recommended several restaurants and was spot on for each. Bottom Line: we will be back; we will recommend to friends.

Room Tip: We were not offered a choice nor were we shown other rooms. Our room was on the ground floor with wi...

I've stayed at quite a few B&B's in my day. I must say - my wife and I stayed at The Northey St. House and had pretty decent expectations. Little did I know how FAR exceeded those expectations would be!! I remember thinking and discussing with my wife that the place was a bit pricey and that we could probably find something cheaper. However, she'd never stayed at a B&B and she was in love with the pictures. When we got there, it was after 11pm. Flora had left a note out for us welcoming us, as well as left the door unlocked so we could get in. The room was beyond beautiful and so well kept. Everything about this place screamed 'home' and 'tasteful'. The next morning we went up to breakfast. We were greeted warmly by Flora and the breakfast she had prepared was not only healthy, it was RIDICULOUS good. We stayed a week and we were sorry to go. Flora recommended almost all the places we went while in Salem and everywhere was just as she said it would be. She even called me while we were out and left a voicemail reminding us to change our clocks back an hour for DST!! We loved Flora and our entire Northey St. House experience and we will definitely be going back!!!

Room Tip: Browse the pictures!!! They are all honestly as beautiful in person and they are on the site!

We needed a one night away and so glad we chose this B&B. Ideal location in Salem and Flora was the perfect hostess. The Garden Room was comfortable and clean. The Northey-glory muffins at breakfast were delicious with fresh fruit and a made-to-order omelet. We would stay there again.

So glad that we chose to stay here. Salem is so busy, this side street really is quiet and no traffic. The street itself is dark and a flashlight helps to navigate the sidewalk. A short walk and you're at the Hawthorne Hotel on the edge of all the activity.Also,the Northey's location makes it possible to leave town without having to drive through all the traffic in town.
Breakfast was always good. My favorite part was meeting the other guests and having time to chat, share , and learn from them.
The Northey is clean, it's neat, and it's inviting.We took advantage of the snacks and beverages that the hostess had set out for her guests.
Thank you to Flora for making our stay a positive experience.

Room Tip: The third floor does have a lower ceiling but the room is bright and you soon forget about it.You do...

This was our first time to Salem. Staying at Northey was the best part of the trip. Flora was extremely helpful. Room was quiet and clean, breakfast was wonderful - all was a real treat! Location was walking distance from the train and to all downtown attractions. Couldn't ask for anything better.
