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.

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.

Great vacation!

We had a great vacation. The house is lovely and very cozy with nice decor. I loved the beach theme. Great location!! We loved the modern kitchen and nice furnishings. We were able to walk to the candy store nearby, along with In A Pig's Eye Restaurant, Pyramid Books (get a tarot reading there - fun!), ice cream shop, and the USS Friendship (Salem Maritime Historic Site). We were also across the street from The House of Seven Gables, which was great, and also close to everything else in downtown Salem. We also enjoyed Winter Island Park (just up the street) and even took a nice walk on the beach there and looked at the lighthouse. My children enjoyed the playground there too. Great food nearby: Engine House Pizza & Life Alive (great smoothies). We hope to be back soon!!

We were thoroughly impressed with the location of this historic home (a few doors down from the House of the Seven Gables). The amenities of the house even included homemade scones waiting for us upon arrival! Definitely worth returning for another stay.

Fantastic! A true Gem of a property!

This property was definitely up to the standard of the pictures, It was clean, warm and extremely comfortable. There were some lovely touches such as cozy blankets to cover yourself with if you were on the couch reading or watching a movie, complimentary shampoo, conditioner & shower gel, complimentary tea & coffee & a small DVD collection. We even go some delicious macaroons on arrival made by Jodi! Its the most welcoming self catering home we have stayed in to date. Perfect after our 14hrs of travelling to get there! George & Jodi were such welcoming hosts. George was extremely helpful with information and hospitality from the point of booking throughout our entire trip, he gave us information on local restaurants and attractions and information on anything we asked.
This property also is truly in the best location! It is the most lovely quiet street, you can happily get an early night if needed with little to no noise. Just the odd car driving by. It is also just a 2 minute stroll along down to the waterfront. Its not in the center of town but its only a 5-10 minute walk into the center. You can walk to all the main attractions with ease. We are delighted we booked the waterfront district and especially delighted we booked this place!

Presidents Day Vacation in Salem

My wife, seven year old daughter and I stayed at this pretty, tidy and well equipped rental while visiting family in Salem. It was perfect for our needs and was far more comfortable and economical than a hotel. The location of the property is also very convenient to Salem amenities such as the Common, shops, restaurants, cafés and tourist attractions. George and Jodi were a pleasure to deal with and even delivered freshly baked gourmet cupcakes! Highly recommend this gem of a rental.

This was a great visit to Salem! George was extremely quick to answer all our questions before booking, super patient with all our questions after booking, and even more accommodating once we finally arrived. The house is charming, clean, and nicely appointed with everything you could possibly need. The location to shops and restaurants is absolutely perfect! Looking forward to revisiting and will certainly look to reserve with George again!

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.
