Overview

About the property

Charming First Floor, 1 Bedroom Apartment In The Derby Waterfront District

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.

About George Bradbury

Jodi and I purchased this home in August of 2013 after selling our first home, which was also located in Salem. We knew we wanted to remain a part of the vibrant and historic community of Salem and we had our hopes set on finding a condo in the heart of downtown, close to our favorite places such as Jaho Coffee House and Turtle Alley Chocolates!

When the opportunity to own an historic home that would afford us the opportunity to be in the precise location we had hoped for and to have space to share all that we love about our home and special city to others, we simply couldn't resist.

We hope that you will come and enjoy all that our home and our city has to offer. Our greatest hope is that it will bring you as much joy as it brings to us.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The location was great! We got ice cream one night and sat on our steps and ate it. We walked everywhere and never had to drive. I'm glad we stayed here because we got to see unique houses as we walked into downtown and we wouldn't have been able to do that had we stayed at one of the hotels. I was concerned about the parking but it was super easy. The ferry parking lot is really close and really easy and my car was completely safe there the whole time. The only reason why I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the bed was a bit uncomfortable, the pillows for the bed definitely need to be replaced and the carpet could use cleaning in the bedroom. Otherwise it was super clean the kitchen is amazing. Lots of amenities like a Keurig and plenty of K-cups. Having the kitchen was very helpful for breakfast. The apartment is super cute with a beach theme. George is very accessible and communicates very well & often. You can always go to hold of him. Great place for the price for sure.

Great historic home in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this home--it's clean, uncluttered, and freshly remodeled. We appreciated the provided coffee and hot cocoa, effective air conditioning, hot water, and soaps and other bathroom supplies. Not to mention the location--you can walk pretty much anywhere--restaurants, beaches, museums, parks, ice cream shops, etc.

One thing to note: to get to the bathroom, you need to go through the bedroom. This wasn't a problem for us, but if you have people sleeping in the living room, they'll need to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom.

Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

"Enchanting" describes this property. It was a perfect short walk to anywhere we wanted to go. The home was very welcoming, the quaint furnishings with a seaside flair and a fully equipped efficient kitchen. We enjoyed wonderful french pressed coffee each morning, compliments of the owners. There were books to read, movies to watch, even brochures for events happening in Salem, plus some take-out menus from the local restaurants. This was our first time using VRBO. We didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. Thank you George & Jodi for making our holiday so wonderful!

Our 1st experience with VRBO and it was great!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at George & Jodi's was great. Communication with George was prompt and helpful. It was easy to check in and the apartment was very clean and had everything we needed (cooking utensils etc.) to make our daily breakfasts and lunches. There was even complimentary Keurig coffees and teas. The location was great...just a short walk to downtown. We even found a parking spot across from the apt. one of the nights we came back to the apartment. The Blaney parking lot we used for the rest of the weekend was close by and free. My niece and I took several walks in the evening on both nights and we felt totally safe in the neighborhood. We definitely recommend George & Jodi's apt. as a nice, very clean, safe place to stay while visiting Salem!

Great amenities and a good location!

  • 4 of 5

Owners provide everything you will need for a free and easy vacation. The coffee, tea etc. was a nice touch. The unit was fairly clean but the carpeting could use a cleaning. Overall we had a good trip and the location was great with short walks to most major sites.

Founded in 1626 by Roger Conant, Salem has a rich history that includes a key role in the spice trade with the East Indies, being the birthplace of the National Guard and the home of the infamous Salem Witchcraft Trials of 1692. Today, Salem is a vibrant urban community with a bustling downtown full of an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. Our waterfront is no longer a hub of the spice trade but is still very active with both recreational and commercial uses.

Each year, over a million visitors from around the globe visit Salem. During their stay tourists visit our world-famous museums, are fascinated by the City’s historic architecture and learn about Salem’s past.
