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.
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.
