“wonderful b & b in salem”
Reviewed 21 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

people found this review helpful

Oh my gosh!! My daughter and I stayed here earlier this month while vacationing in Salem. The proprietor, Jocelyn, was absolutely wonderful! She made us feel so welcome and so at home during our stay. The continental breakfast was superb and we were given the choice of almond milk (a non-dairy milk) or dairy milk for our cereal. That was so refreshing, since I have sensitivity to some dairy products and not very many places offer a choice. Our room was comfy and clean and the location was within walking distance to all the places we wanted to see during our visit. Jocelyn was truly helpful with suggestions about great restaurants nearby and fun sites to see in Salem. We were delighted with the decor in our room as well as the decor in the rest of the house. My daughter and I will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Salem.

“Best B&B, best location”

We cannot say enough about our stay at The Henry Derby House. Jocelyn made us feel welcome and gave us great tips about places to dine and local history. The B&B was clean, comfy and strategically located near everywhere you wish to go. Breakfast was plentiful and outstanding. Salem had many unique gems and this place was surely one, Do not hesitate to stay here and enjoy the local hospitality!

“Lovely old, historic B & B; even lovelier proprietor”
Reviewed 20 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We spent two nights in April at the Henry Derby House; a lovely, old, historic home in Salem. Our particular room was on the small side (which is not unusual in old homes) but very comfortable. The other rooms were a bit larger. The entire house is clean,inviting and pleasantly decorated.
Our hostess and new proprietor, Jocelyn, was as accomodating as humanly possibly and left us wanting for nothing. We felt welcome from the minute we got there until the minute we left.
Breakfast, (considered expanded continental) was very good with several baked goods, cereals, yogurts and ample fruit. There was coffee, tea and baked goods out at all times for the guests.
The location was perfect for us, as we like to walk. The downtown area was probably 5 to 10 minutes away on foot. It was both convenient and quiet. The parking is mostly on street, but didn't seem to be a problem at this time of year.
Overall, we throughly enjoyed our stay and would welcome an opportunity to return to Salem and the Henry Derby House.

“An amazing place, an amazing city.”

This is by far one of the best bed and breakfasts I have stayed at. The owner is amazing, she is very in tune with the needs of guests as well as Salem. The breakfast is more of a feast then a continental breakfast, which adds to the warm welcome and hospitality to the house. I'm not sure why you are reading this, if you are thinking of staying here then you should have booked it by now, because it is that good.

“Girlfriend getaway!”

My best friend and I spent a weekend here in February. A very attractive property and an awesome location! It was a nice walk to everywhere we wanted to go. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable- great for an afternoon nap after lots of walking! Don't let "continental breakfast" fool you- there is a great spread! Yogurt, fruit, fresh baked goods, pastries, etc. Jocelyn is a wonderful hostess who will see to your every need and gives great recommendations on what to do in the area!
