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 Accomodations; Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for our stay, while visiting our daughter in nearby Beverly. The location was perfect for local sightseeing, food, and shopping (all within walking distance). We were even able to walk to the train station. The accommodations were perfect, with a charming, cozy, quiet, at home atmosphere. Since there is not assigned parking, we were a little worried about finding parking. However, we were always able to find parking within 1/2 block of the house all week. Owner was very thoughtful and responsive, even providing texts with local events during our stay. With our daughter being a student at nearby Endicott College, we hope to stay here on all of our visits.

Very nice and clean accommodations in historic Salem

  • 5 of 5

The VRBO was located in in historic Salem within walking distance of all the tours and sights in old downtown. A lot of history in this area which is what we came for. The city and old housing are beautiful and mind boggling. The house we stayed at was built in 1813 and I could only imagine the history associated with it; very clean and comfortable. Kudos to the proprietor.

The House of Seven Gables was awesome as well as all of the Witch museums. Make sure you visit these sights if you are in the area. You won't be disappointed. A special shout out to "Derby Joe" a small coffee shop on Derby Street. A stop on the way to morning activities for coffee and blueberry muffins. The owner was very friendly and we felt very welcome here.

My wife and I are from Oklahoma and my daughter is from Florida. This was her 30th birthday present from us. We have never been to New England and (along with a trip to Montreal) are very impressed with the people and the area. I will certainly recommend

this VRBO to all our friends.

OH CLIFFORD! OH HEBZIBAH!

  • 5 of 5

Replay the drama of the cursed Pyncheon's at the House of Seven Gables just inches from this perfect nest. Our family loved everything about this apartment and all (OMG anything you could possibly imagine!) amenities were carefully prepared for us by the owners. We left with our souls filled with Salem's great history and wonderful memories. We hope to come back again!!!

Great apartment in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights during my kids' spring break for a quick visit to Salem. Lovely apartment - immaculately clean and comfortable. The location is convenient to walk to all of the sites and restaurants in town. I highly recommend and will definitely book again for another trip to Salem.

Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The little apartment was exactly what we needed for a long weekend in Salem. The weather was not great during our stay, but George and Jodi's home provided warm and cozy respite from the icy storm outside. The home is super clean and just the right size for a couple, or small family. It is down the block from the House of the Seven Gables, and a very short walk to the heart of downtown. We didn't need to use our car once. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a home base while exploring Salem.

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.
