About Mary Woodcock

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

Why Mary Woodcock chose Salem

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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!

Excellent house for a group trip to salem

  • 5 of 5
The house was extremely lovely and fit our group of 10 well. Mary was an excellent host and let us use the dining room to host a tea party for some friends before the wedding. The house was within walking distance to downtown and made it so that we could enjoy a car free weekend. It was also well stocked with towels and basic kitchen supplies so we could cook ourselves meals at the house. It is a wonderful house and a great place to stay for a group visit to Salem.
Mary was very helpful and communicated with us regularly and gave us lots of helpful information. She was very prompt and an excellent host in general.

Terrific home in Historic Salem.

  • 4 of 5
Our large family of eight adults and two small children spent 5 nights in this roomy home. The home was beautifully and comfortably furnished. The kitchen was well-stocked to meet all of our needs. The house has been completely refurbished. It is in a quiet neighborhood. It includes a park nearby for families of all ages. The home is within walking distance to Salem's historic sights and also to the train station for those who wish to take the train to Boston. My family chose this home because it is
in the same neighborhood where we grew up. We were there for my daughter's wedding and a family reunion. Mary was quite helpful and went our of her way to make sure that all of our needs were met. I would have given this home 5 stars except that the sleeping space in the basement was uncomfortably warm and stuffy.
Mary intends to make improvements on this issue. The home was very clean. We appreciated having air conditioning. I would definitely recommend this home to other families. If our family has the opportunity to stay in Salem again, I would rent Mary's house.

Owner's Response: So lovely having you all and learning more about the neighborhood back when you were growing up here. I loved the fact that we share many similar experiences and fond memories. I appreciate the feedback about the air circulation in the basement and am in the process of a resolution. Your always welcomed to stop by I love to hear more about the history of the neighborhood.

Although we missed the 15hrs timing for arrival, everything was ready for us to enjoy our stay there. The available "instruction" booklet had all the answers to our questions even though we knew that Mary was just a phone call away. The place was cosy and confortable with plenty of bedspace for us who were two couples with a teenager. Conveniantly located, in the end, we wished that we could have stayed for another week. We highly recommend and would go back anytime. Dan, Danielle, Sabrina, Robert and Nathalie from Quebec, Canada

Owner's Response: Merci Beaucoup. So Relieved you powered through east coast mountain range and safely made it to Salem to enjoy the beaches and surrounding area. Glad you enjoyed the home and would have loved to have you for another week. Your welcome here anytime even if it is for a quick layover from visiting US Universities. Take care, Mary

Great Stay in Salem

  • 5 of 5
A nice quiet neighborhood with children and lots of dog walkers. Close to the water, and also a walk away from all of the historic downtown. A great diner around the corner made it perfect.
