Guestbook comments from the owner
We couldn't be more thankful that we had your house to stay in during our wedding weekend! Everyone had a wonderful time between a pot luck on Thursday evening, opening gifts in your living room on our wedding morning, my girls reading gossip magazines while having their hair done, and enjoying some time in Salem. Our experience just wouldn't have been the same in a hotel. THANK YOU for sharing your house with us and for making sure we were comfortable there!

Like to meet and greet new friends. On a recent trip to India my children commented that there is no place on this earth that I don't run into someone I know.

Mary Woodcock purchased this house in 1972

Ideally located to downtown Salem with out waiting in traffic or trying to hunt down an illusive parking space. Also after enjoying the sights and sound of Salem you can walk to the commuter train station to take the inbound train to Boston or the outbound Train to Newburyport, Rockport, Gloucester or Manchester by the Sea.

Close to everything you may want or need. While walking the nieghborhood you'll get to see the GIANT GNOME that lives next door or view the massive garden that is home of prize winning GIANT PUMPKINS over 1,000 lbs.

GREAT HOUSE AND WONDERFUL HOME OWNER

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for my brother's graduation so we had multiple family members staying, and it was very comfortable. The house is beautiful, and spacious. The bedrooms are quite large. Also the homeowners was very gracious and helpful in helping us arrange everything, as we had to make a few changes concerning my sisters dog (who was welcome by the way but ended up not coming). The neighborhood is nice and has a beautiful park with a playground right down the street so its ideal for folks with kids. We would definatly stay there again.

Owner's Response: It was so lovely being part of your graduation festivities. During your stay my oldest was also graduating and could relate about being flexible. Sometimes things just happen and you need to adjust. I truly make every effort to make everything as comfortable as possible. Thank you for choosing my home to stay.

FIRST MARATHON A SUCSESS!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Leslie's Retreat was a blast! It was our first time to the East Coast and will definitely be back. Mary was more than helpful with questions about distance to and from places, train schedules, best places to eat and making sure we even had a blender for shakes for our Marathoner. This home is not only beautiful but ideally located near the train and bus station. Walking distance to downtown Salem made it so fun to be able to go back and forth multiple times during the day. The days we went into Boston were days of fun and easy breezy! There were 7 adults in our group and this house worked perfectly. I would definitely stay here again! Thank you Mary for everything! You are a dear....

Owner's Response: An absolute pleasure meeting you and your family. Thank you for making me a small part of your marathon experience. Your enthusiasm for Salem and Boston is infectious. I am eager to participate in the Salem Scavenger Hunt with friends and family. You've manage to find a fun filled activity that a seasoned Salem townie had no idea about. Well done. The door is always open whether it's for a marathon or just passing through.

CAN'T BEAT LESLIE'S RETREAT! OUTSTANDING

Can't beat Leslie's Retreat! OUTSTANDING
  • 5 of 5
We were so delighted with the house, layout and all the amenities. The owner meet as at the house as we arrived. She answered all the questions we had about the house and gave us insider knowledge about great places to dine and visit while staying at Salem. There was a nice bottle of wine for us chilling in the refrigerator that was a fabulous "surprise". The home was pleasantly furnished with a designers eye. The gas fireplace was so lovely to sit by and just relax with a good book. The kitchen was a dream to work in, well stocked with appliances and dishware. Beds were very comfortable and inviting. I can not thank the owner enough for her thoughtfulness and attention to detail. I hope to be able to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. So glad you appreciated all the personal touches to make the home like a cozy retreat. We try to think of all the items that would make the house feel like a home away from home. Glad you noticed and hope you have an opportunity to come back. Highest Regards

VERY COMFORTABLE HOUSE, EVEN WITH 9 PEOPLE

  • 5 of 5
A group of 9 of us stayed at the house the weekend before Halloween. Even with a full house, it did not feel crowded at all and we had all the comforts of home. It is just a short walk to downtown Salem, several museums as well as the commuter rail to get to Boston. A great place to stay - we recommend it.
