Overview

Salem Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our cozy, comfortable and newly renovated Carriage House (sister to the brand-new Chariot Suite VRBO Listing #433826 which is located downstairs) is a wonderful mix of the old with the new. Not just a place to rest your head but a wonderfully preserved piece of history. Built in 1759 the Carriage House is a special gem, rich with history.

The Carriage House was built in 1759 after purchasing the property from Judge Lynde in 1753. In 1753 the estate deed stated the Carriage House land was to be part of the Arbor Lot where the first fort in Salem was built 100 years prior, in 1653; the land where the Carriage House now stands has been traced back to before 1653.

The old charm of this historic Carriage House was painstakingly preserved: the old wood burning stove, original hardwood beams and floors, windows, doors and trim.

Our 42” flat screen TV and Simmons Beauty Rest with individual wrapped coils is sure to put you into a dreamlike sleep! The Carriage House is already hooked-up with WiFi-just bring your laptop!

The kitchen with granite countertops, custom-made cabinetry and stainless dishwasher is fully applianced and ready for you to cook up a storm.

The Carriage House offers a quiet, private deck, and large outdoor space.

Brand new, full tub in the bathroom for soaking along with granite vanity.

Washer/dryer located in the Carriage House.

1 deeded parking spot comes with the rental. Please bring a small car as parking is tight.

Please note the fireplace is just for show and too old to function properly in the home. Please refrain from lighting the fireplace.

CANCELLATION POLICY:

In the event of a written cancellation by a guest more than sixty (60) days prior to the lease commencement date, the Carriage House will refund one-hundred percent (100%) of any monies paid by the guest. Cancellation between fifteen (15) days and sixty (60) days prior to the check-in date will result in a forfeiture of the entire monies unless the property can be re-leased for that entire rental period. In the case of a cancellation between thirty (30) days and sixty (60) days prior to the lease commencement date and the Carriage House is able to re-book the property for the entire period, the carriage House will refund one-hundred percent (100%) less a cancellation fee of $100. Cancellation within thirty (30) days of the commencement date FOR ANY REASON will result in a forfeiture of the entire monies and the security deposit will be returned to the guest. Additionally, there shall be NO REFUNDS FOR EARLY TERMINATION FOR ANY-REASON.

PRIVACY:

Please do not stop by the property and disturb the guests. Our wish is that our guests enjoy their privacy. Please call the owner for specific questions.

About The Owner

One of the most unique properties in downtown Salem, MA, the newly renovated Carriage House is a wonderfully historical place. Not only has the historic charm been preserved but the Carriage House is rich with history. Built in 1759 as the Carriage House to the home next door the Carriage House was owned by a well-known and popular cocoa merchant and shipper. Barr bought the estate from Judge Lynde in 1753 where the deed stated the Carriage House to be 'part of the Arbor Lot where the first fort in Salem was built 100 years ago.' The land where the Carriage House now stands has been traced back to before 1653.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Salem

Built in 1759 the Carriage House is a special gem, rich with history; so rich with history that we had to restore it to its beautiful luster.

The Carriage House located in downtown historic Salem is a special place as is the City of Salem, MA.

Salem is most widely known for its witchcraft trials of 1692; however this colorful, coastal city has much more to offer: a rich maritime heritage, a culturally diverse population and restaurants, an impressive display of historic architecture, wonderful nightlife, Derby Wharf, Salem Commons and amazing stories that span almost four centuries.

What makes this condo unique

Walk to everything in Salem, the Witch Dungeon Museum (on the same street as the Carriage House), the waterfront, Salem Commons, Charter Street Cemetery (the oldest cemetery in Salem, and the second oldest known cemetery in the country started in 1637), the House of the Seven Gables, The Witch Museum, Derby Wharf, Historic Pickering Wharf, Essex Street, McIntire historical district, Peabody Essex Museum, Salem Harbor and the Pirate Museum. Amazing restaurants with different style cuisines are right at your back door. Please do not stop by the property and disturb the guests. Our wish is that our guests enjoy their privacy. Please call the owner for specific questions.

Can I move in??

  • 5 of 5
Oh my gosh! Me & my husband just returned from a fabulous stay in the Carriage House (coach suite) - sadly only 3 nights. What an adorable place, in the most preferable location. Staying the first weekend of October in Salem is wonderful, but can easily turn into a nightmare if you chose to stay outside of the downtown area and have to commute. From the Carriage House, we could walk everywhere; my car did NOT move the whole time we were there. The suite was definitely more lovely than I anticipated, and I will stay here every time I visit Salem. So quaint and quiet, with the most beautiful decor. Charrissa was also wonderful to work with. So happy to have found this little gem.

As Advertised: One Gem of a Property

  • 5 of 5
We could not be more pleased with our stay. What makes the property especially attractive is the genuine interest of the owner to want you to have the best experience possible. Carissa from the very beginning was a delight to communicate with and went out of her way to make sure she answered all our questions ahead of our arrival. The location could not be better and the amenities are first class. WE would not hesitate to stay in this property again.

Amazingly special, magical place!

  • 5 of 5
I was born and raised in Salem but now that the family home is gone I usually stay in hotels or vacation apartments and the Carriage House was by far the best place I have ever stayed in! It is spotless, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Not only is the bed super-comfy (I slept like a log and barely suffered from jet lag at all) but even the air mattress that my friend used was ultra-luxe! It has every amenity you need in case one wants to cook instead of going out to the many really good restaurants in Salem.

You can't beat the location, right in the center of downtown Salem, steps from the shops and train station in case you want to go to Boston. In fact, I didn't want to leave and have booked a return for the summer for the other unit! Thank you for everything!

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the carriage house for a full two weeks while I researched a book. First let me say that Charrissa was a pleasure to work with--she was happy to give me the extra paperwork I needed for my grant-funded visit, she was very responsive to any questions or concerns, and she really bent over backward to make sure our stay was a pleasant one. We had a car because I was going all over the Merrimack Valley, but you don't need one. The central location is so convenient and we walked all over Salem. It's just a brief stroll from the train station too, if you want to take a day trip down to Boston. The place was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. I recommend this to anyone who's coming to Salem.

Fell in Love with Salem !

  • 5 of 5
What a quaint and charming little town - My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at the Carriage House and had a wonderful time.
The location is perfect for exploring the old town and Charrissa has done a great job with the interior decor, she was always helpful and prompt in correspondence and everything just felt comfortable from start to finish.
We rented a car for a day and drove North up the coast - We explored old cemeteries, and stopped in postcard perfect little towns along the way, beautiful.
Locally we enjoyed the House of the Seven Gables, the Witch Museum, The Peabody Essex Museum, The Wharf, and numerous little shops throughout the town.
We had libations and nourishment from the Tavern in the Square, the Lobster Shanty, Finz, The Garden Cafe at the PEM, and fresh produce and veggies from a little market just down the block on Church St.
We had a great time, Thanks so much Charrissa.
