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.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Great location and welcoming feeling. The property was clean and very well-maintained. We loved the kitchen, especially.

Lucky for us, the 4th of July fireworks got postponed until the 6th (the evening we drove into town), and we got to watch them from about a block away from the VRBO.

During our stay, it was convenient walking to the trolley, House of Seven Gables, Oldest Candy Store in the country, and oldest Donut Shop in Salem. And of course the waterfront.

Our only regret is that we weren't able to stay on Thurs, and check out the local farmers' market ... the sea salt - chocolate brownies that Jodi left us on the kitchen table were some of the best brownies we ever had!! I would have been fun to see her bakery stand at the Salem market.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was perfect. It allowed us to walk to all the restaurants in Salem. George was very informative with the goings on in the area during the Fourth of July festivities, and street closures etc. We visit Salem at least once a year and we will definitly rent here again. It is so much nicer than being in a hotel. We felt like we were living in Salem rather than living out of a suitcase in a hotel. It was great having the kitchenette to make a small breakfast in the morning rather than having to get dressed and go out to breakfast. It allowed us to relax and not feel rushed. The bed is on the small side, (a double) since we sleep in a King, but we can live with that. No complaints here!

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
We were the very first people to stay in the apartment and we LOVED it! It was our first anniversary vacation (as well as my husband's birthday) and the owners went out of their way to make everything perfect. You are crazy to not book with them!

A TREASURE IN THE HEART OF SALEM!

  • 5 of 5
This was such a great find! A wonderful antique property close to everything and on a beautiful street. The owners have done an amazing job beautifully remodeling and decorating the property, it was spotless, and well taken care of down to the last detail! The owners were absolutely wonderful and provided everything we could possibly need for our stay, down to the Keurig coffee maker, fully stocked kitchen and bathroom and quality toiletries! This was by far much better than staying at a hotel, I enjoyed the experience so much that I recommended this to friends and family as soon as I returned home!

THOROUGHLY ENJOYED OUR STAY.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were extremely accommodating. The apartment was extremely clean and well furnished (adorable, in fact). And the location to various points of interest was superb. We found this little gem when planning a trip to Salem to visit family. It was great to have our own space to come back to at the end of the day. We will definitely try to stay there 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.
