We rented the John Edwards House when our daughter was getting married in the area. It was the perfect fit for our needs. We were all from out of state and it was fun to come together for the days leading up to the event. We had the bridal party and some of my family staying there. I even hosted a brunch the day after the wedding for both families. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms are comfortable and very attractive. We all gathered around the dining room table for meals and games. What I appreciated the most was how helpful Phil and Jocelyn were as I planned for the stay. They live right next door so they are available if any needs arise. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay in the Salem area with a large group.
