We just left from a 3 night stay for our honeymoon and we didn't want to leave! We checked in late Monday evening and Phillip gave us a tour. He was very sweet and helpful!! The cat was super adorable too :) We stayed in the Mauve room. It came with a large king size bed with an additional room with a twin bed. Also it had a private bathroom on the first floor. Everything was super clean and tidy! There is a mini fridge in the room which is nice. The bathroom had shampoo and body soap and plenty of towels. Also cute robes in the closet to use! There was also an iron and ironing board which was very nice. This B&B was in walking distance from everything! The only time we used our car all weekend was for a trip to Boston. I would definitely recommend this place to others and we will certainly be back!! Thank you for your hospitality!! :)
I have to say that I love staying in B&B's. The Henry Derby House was very nice. They made us feel like we were extended family and we enjoyed this very much. This B&B is within walking distance of everything. We walked everywhere...Although the taxi's around Salem are only $6. Very Reasonable...We had a very nice stay and Salem is very quaint! Very safe feeling. We loved this small town! Thanks sooo much!
Jocelyn was so sweet! We felt so welcome by her and her hubby and their adorable baby boy! Our room was nice and clean and spacious. We also loved the yummy breakfast in the morning that she makes. Jocelyn, keep making those pumpkin waffles!! And Chevy is adorable, miss him so much!
Looks great from a distance but close up the unkempt front garden and scruffy front door set our alarm bells ringing
The interior was also pretty scruffy, with antique furniture but of the junk yard variety. Our bedroom was a reasonable size but the furniture was oversized for the room, and the bed had no headboard. Worse, in adjusting the curtains, the curtain pole fell off and hit my wife on the head - several of the curtain pole brackets were broken
We had a private bathroom - but on a different floor
Breakfast was very basic
Overall very poor value for money for $140 per room
My partner and I have stayed here numerous times, and we will back this October for Halloween! Jocelyn and Phillip are wonderful, and make sure that you are well taken care of. Every time we visit we feel like we are visiting family. We can't wait to get back again.
Be sure to be on the look out for some unexpected visitors too! I loved meeting Sarah on my first visit.
