5 Bedroom 4 Bathroom Historic former B&B in McIntire District
About Philip Marchand
I am a letter carrier in Salem, MA and have been there for about 15 years. We inherited the B&B from my mother who converted our family home into a B&B in 2001. We also own and operate the John Edwards House, which is another vacation rental property located right next door. I am dedicated to maintaining these properties and making them a home away from home for travelers looking to visit Salem.
Philip Marchand purchased this House in 2012
Why Philip Marchand chose Salem
My parents bought this house in 1978 from my great Aunt and raised our family here. My mother decided to convert the home into a B&B after my sister and I had moved on to college. She loved the business and enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and sharing stories. My wife and I took over the B&B when my mother passed away in 2012 and did our best to keep the same warm feel to the home. In 2016 we decided to convert the home into a full house rental. We are certain that families will love staying the Henry Derby House just as much as we did!
What makes this House unique
The unique character of the home makes staying at the Henry Derby House a different experience than your usual hotel stay. Built in 1840 this historic home has seen many transformations over the years but still has maintained the original character of the Greek Revival style home. The proximity to downtown Salem makes it a perfect spot for large groups traveling together to travel to Salem and have their home away from home.

Perfect location, size, & amount of spooky!!!
We have loved our time in Salem. The Derby House was the perfect spot to stay. The location was within walking distance of everything. The size of house was perfect. We ended up only having 6, but could have fit so many more friends in here. We loved the quaint space & felt the haunted stories of the house added to its uniqueness. I would definitely recommend this home for others!
Walk everywhere in downtown Salem
Very good location in Salem: can walk to all of downtown. Easy to get to by train if you're OK walking about six blocks.
Great place in walking distance to all of Salem
Spent a week living in a building that predated my Grandfather's grandfather, and it was very enjoyable. Buildings this old have foibles, but not this one. We kept, well decorated, quaint to a fault. Really an interesting residence.
Everything was very easy getting in and out, and the owner even gave us the secret location of the best popcorn in town. Great place to stay if you're looking at Salem for a good time.
By the way, ALSO walking distance to the train into Boston's North Station, which is a short walk to the Freedom Trail. We commuted it one day and it was super-cheap, super-easy. So catching up on history (or a Bruins or Sox game) is well within reach from this location as well.
Great place for a 60th Birthday
This property is centrally located so it was an easy to walk to everything. My group rented both the Henry Derby house and the John Edward house next door, we were fifteen and everyone was very comfortable! With room to spare. The garden between the two houses was enchanting and the perfect setting for breakfast. The process of checking in was a breeze there is parking on site for two and parking passes were provided for street parking right next to the house. The houses provided everything we needed plenty of towels, dishes , three coffee makers. Never ran out of hot water ( an issue with this many people) many of us were from the south and loved the old New England feel of the houses really charming! I know many of our group can’t wait to come back. Great town great lodging 🙌
Cute yellow house
property just as described, everything was available on premises for us, parking right next to the house
This property is centrally located so you don’t have to worry about finding parking in the busy areas of town. We had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy down time during our stay in the large house and the owner was super nice checking in on us to make sure all was well. Highly recommend!
We are located in the McIntire District of Historic Salem. We are closest to the Witch House and the Gedney House, but also walking distance to the Salem Witch Museum, Peabody Essex Museum, and House of Seven Gables. We are also very close to wedding venues like Hamilton Hall, the Hawthorne Hotel and Salem Waterfront Hotel. Families visiting will also like to visit the Salem Willows which is only about a 5 minute drive. The Salem Commuter Rail and Salem Ferry also make for easy day trips into Boston. Other day trips people enjoy are up the coast to scenic Rockport or Gloucester.
