CHARMING, ANTIQUE HOME IN THE HEART OF HISTORIC SALEM

Salem Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Charming First Floor, 1 Bedroom Apartment In The Derby Waterfront District

Our 1813 home is the best of both worlds; historic in character but with modern amenities. The first floor apartment's living room overlooks historic Derby Street and features period details such as wainscoting and original hardwood floors. The living room includes a pull-out double bed, HDTV, DVD player & cable.

Because one of the owners is a baker, you'll be delighted to find a modern, sunlit and very well-equipped kitchen, with granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, microwave, gas range & oven. The kitchen also features a Keurig coffee maker with an assortment of coffees, teas and hot chocolate as well as a french press, for those who prefer the ceremony involved in brewing the traditional perfect cup!

The bedroom, decorated in calming coastal tones is the perfect retreat after a long and bustling day enjoying salem's exciting activities, museums and history. The bedroom includes a double bed, New England writing desk, HDTV and all the peace you could desire.

A modern bathroom, featuring tiled shower & bathtub, also includes all of the personal touches to make your stay complete, such as soft, absorbent towels and local soaps, shampoos and lotions.

On-street (free) parking is available on Derby St. and in the Salem Ferry lot all year except for October 1 - November 1. Parking in the Waterfront and Downtown garages is also available and is recommended from October 1 - November 1. Please refer to salem.com for the most current information.

With such a welcoming and charming home, you could be tempted to stay inside during your entire stay but just steps from your front door are all of the attractions Salem has to offer. Four doors down, stands the Nathaniel Hawthorne House of the Seven Gables and a few steps further you arrive at Ye Olde Pepper Candy Companie, America's oldest candy company (since 1806).

Located on the waterfront, Derby Street extends further into the heart of Salem past the Maritime National Historic site which features several sites to explore such as The Friendship, a reconstruction of a 171-foot three-masted East Indianman built in 1797 and the Custom House, to name a few.

The list goes on and on, including the Peabody Essex Museum, one of the 25 largest art museums in the nation, a vibrant downtown that is home to some of the best restaurants on the North Shore and dozens of unique shops and museums where one can go to learn all about the infamous Salem Witch Trials.

About George Bradbury

Jodi and I purchased this home in August of 2013 after selling our first home, which was also located in Salem. We knew we wanted to remain a part of the vibrant and historic community of Salem and we had our hopes set on finding a condo in the heart of downtown, close to our favorite places such as Jaho Coffee House and Turtle Alley Chocolates!

When the opportunity to own an historic home that would afford us the opportunity to be in the precise location we had hoped for and to have space to share all that we love about our home and special city to others, we simply couldn't resist.

We hope that you will come and enjoy all that our home and our city has to offer. Our greatest hope is that it will bring you as much joy as it brings to us.

George Bradbury purchased this apartment in 2013

Amazing honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I visited Salem for the first time on our honeymoon. We decided not to rent a car, so with luggage it was a pretty tiring walk to the house. Once we got to the house and saw how welcoming and cozy it was, it was all worth it. It was nicely decorated and adequately equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals. We liked that it was within walking distance of everything, but tucked away on a quiet street. George and Jodi (the owners) were very friendly and helpful, letting us know when the farmer's market is and things to do while in Salem. Also, Jodi left some amazing brownies for us that she baked. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone staying in Salem, and we will be staying there on our next trip.

Perfect place in Salem

  • 5 of 5
We had the best time. The apartment is spotless, tasteful and was comfortable for our family of three. It was great to stay in the historic part of town and be neighbors of The House of Seven Gables - one of my favorite spots!

George and Jodi have a great sense of what travelers need - coffee (keurig machine), take out menus for that night you just need to stay in and welcome brownies from Jodi's bakery (delicious!).

George's check in instructions were thorough and helpful. He also texted a few good event tips during our stay - much appreciated! We got to say hi to them at the Thursday farmers market where Jodi sells her baked goods - her cupcakes and peach crumble were so tasty!

We recommend Salem and the apartment whole- heartledly.

What a wonderful home away from home. Jodi and George really made us feel comfortable from the nice welcome note and wonderful brownies to the soft toilet paper, nice hand soap, games and movies. This is a fantastic place to say. It's not easy to find a place in this area and this was the best

An amazing home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, son and I had the most amazing stay at George and Jodi's place. From the moment we arrived to Jodi's (who is a baker) fresh baked cupcakes, right up until the end everything was perfect. Upon our arrival George was there to meet us. He gave us a tour of the unit, showed us where everything was and really made us feel at home.

The house was beautiful. It was clean (which we are very particular about), had modern finishes and many personal touches like local soaps and even vanilla scented garbage bags. The pictures online do not even do this place justice. The house was perfectly situated for our stay. Salem is a beautiful quiet harbor town that is very picturesque. There are many great restaurants and lots of museums and tourist activities if you are into that kind of thing.

Lastly, if I haven't said it already George and Jodi were just great!! George was very responsive to all our questions: from email messages before our stay, to advice on what to see and where to eat around town in Salem, to some recommendations on best ways to get into Boston (I would recommend the ferry) George had all the answers. George was willing to help us out throughout our stay as well. He printed off my ticket to a Red Sox's game for me, when our son took a tumble he provided us with the information to a medical centre and he even brought over dinner made by Jodi for my wife when he knew she would be home by herself with our 1 year old while I was at the Red Sox's game (She says it was the best corn chowder she has ever had!!).

Overall, we cannot say enough good things about our stay in Salem at George and Jodi's place. We would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be back ourselves as soon as we can.

Best of Salem

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (hubby and 2 small girls), had a really great stay at this cozy little place in Salem. We came in for a wedding in a nearby town, and it was a central place we could easily go to and from.

George and Jodi had the place so clean and tidy, with everything you need while you're away from home.

We definitely recommend this place to others, and will stay again if we're ever in the area!

Founded in 1626 by Roger Conant, Salem has a rich history that includes a key role in the spice trade with the East Indies, being the birthplace of the National Guard and the home of the infamous Salem Witchcraft Trials of 1692. Today, Salem is a vibrant urban community with a bustling downtown full of an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. Our waterfront is no longer a hub of the spice trade but is still very active with both recreational and commercial uses.

Each year, over a million visitors from around the globe visit Salem. During their stay tourists visit our world-famous museums, are fascinated by the City’s historic architecture and learn about Salem’s past.
