We chose to by this condo because it reminded us of romantic places we’ve stayed in Paris and Montreal. There is endless fascination in watching all the people walking on the street below on one of the most pedestrian streets in Salem. Picture granite cobblestones on a tree lined street situated next to the old Town Hall, site of the Farmer's Market and many cultural events.
This is a 2005 renovation of the old Distillery building, which left many fascinating architectural details, and installed top-flight appliances. Jacuzzi, full kitchen, gas fireplace, washer/dryer, central heat/air conditioning.
This is a second and third floor condominium loft. Sleep on a cushy Tempurpedic queen size mattress. The sofa is a new convertible bed as well- for a child or a second couple.
We are surrounded by restaurants serving world class selections of unique cultures. Eat American, Thai, Turkish, Irish, Indian, Mexican, or Italian without leaving sight of your home base.
This is an exciting time to live in Salem. Many restaurants host open mic evenings, or have regular bands playing jazz, blues, and soul each night. Folk and Irish music is also alive and well. We even have street performers in the Derby Square amphitheater next door on a regular basis. This is not your best location if you want to get an early night's sleep on the weekend!
Mature guests: This unit is amongst a building full of childless professionals, and so we look for couples with older children.
Health club: We provide passes to the local YMCA which is two blocks away. Come with your exercise gear- they are open from 5AM to 10 PM!
Robert and I bought this condo hoping that one of our adult children would want to live in Salem. As it turned out, they have settled on the west coast, and we have moved to Maine. The condo is managed by us with the help of a knowledgeable local property manager, so all questions will be handled quickly and professionally.
This is a classy repurposing of an old jazz club, which was once a distillery when the waterfront lay just outside the door. We loved the inclusion of antique details, like the huge gears that remain in our rafters, from the days when barrels of rum were lifted for storage.
All our guest comments will mention how handy the condo is to everything down town. You will see it all from the tall south facing windows that look over the graceful balcony to the street below.
