Why Ellen Colingsworth chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

Our young families are in the area, so this is our home when we visit them. We chose Salem because of vibrant festivals and activities, the stunning historic environment and the excellent public transportation to Boston, Logan airport, and Maine. We hope you enjoy your visit.

What makes this condo unique

We love this place because of the light filled rooms and the charming turn of the century features like the pillars dividing the dining and living rooms. It is convenient to all the things we need and enjoy. We've kept it simple and uncluttered to make it easy to enjoy during vacations. At the same time, we've chosen some special furniture and touches to make it feel like home.

Map

The Peabody Essex Museum is world class. There are too many witch attractions to mention here! The seacoast is stunning. Easy access to Boston and Logan airport and Maine via trains or buses.

Location is key, as they say!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for five nights as a family of four. The booking and check in process was smooth - the owner was accommodating even when I initially booked the wrong dates! It is an older place, but it suited our family's needs well and was within really easy walking distance to all the major Salem sights. We would stay here again.

Lovely stay in Salem

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this wonderful condo. It was great, and the owner, as well as the agent were equally wonderful. An easy repeat for a comfy stay near everything. Ahh...

Great Spot

  • 4 of 5

Great spot for the four of us and my dogs. It was nice for each of my nieces to have their own room. The condo is well located to downtown Salem so the car wasn't a necessity. Ellen was very helpful and the other tenants in the building were very nice as well.

Great

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four weeks at this rental and had a wonderful time. It was very clean and well kept and only a block or two from downtown Salem. Christine answered the few questions that we had promptly and courteously. We used the subway system extensively to travel to and around Boston. The nearest subway station is a short drive away and you can park there all day for $5. We purchased very reasonably priced weekly subway tickets right at the station. We would definitely stay here again.
