We were very pleased with our experience at the B & B at the Amenda Payson House. Ada was very friendly and was available whenever we needed an information. She did not hesitate to search on the web or to make phone calls to find answers to questions of which she did not know the answers. Great breakfast, very nice...

We were very pleased with this B& B. Located within walking distance to every tourist attraction. The B& B was beautifully decorated, and clean. The hosts were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the morning conversations with breakfast. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay, you wont be disappointed! They only have 3 guest rooms, and only accept...

Thank you Dave and Pam for contributing your comments to TripAdvisor. So glad to hear you had a good time and that we could provide a cool comfort station for your five night stay. While Ada usually has control of most things, she felt helpless in controlling our three 90+ degree heat wave in May. Certainly, not our normal May...

We stayed in Salem at the Amanda Payson House in mid-May and could not have been more satisfied. The historic house was pristine, located near the Commom walking distance from everything. The breakfasts were delicious and the hosts had thought of every detail to make their guests comfortable. We stayed in a very quiet room in the back of the...

Thank you Susan and Pavel for posting your kind remarks on TripAdvisor. It’s always good to hear of successful visits to Salem and that our B&B contributed to the overall great time.

I was so happy to have found this B&B. The house itself is lovely, and I enjoyed a large and comfy room in the front of the house. There was a small communal sitting room with coffee and tea and snacks and a fridge if you wanted to store something of your own. The breakfast each morning was delicious with...

Thanks Frances for posting your comments on TripAdvisor….We are so glad you had a pleasant stay during our opening weekend. It’s always nice to have an unscathed opening, even after 29 years. Salem was certainly abuzz that weekend and the Poetry Festival was the highlight of so many activities. A great spring fling for sure……….Again, thank you for taking the...

We were passing through Salem doing a tour of New England and decided to do a stopover but we hadn't booked anywhere. I'd researched a couple of options and this was one that took my liking and didn't disappoint. We were greeted warmly by Donald (the owner) and as luck would have it they had a room for the night....

This is a great place to stay while in Salem. Location is great and Ada and Donald are lovely. The B and B was very clean and comfortable. Each morning Ada prepared a delicious breakfast with scones, waffles, fresh fruit, granola, cereal, tea and coffee. Anything you need to know about Salem, they can tell you!

This Bed and Breakfast was Excellent! We are BB's people and this BB was the cleanest I've been in. Their hospiatlity was wonderful, our flight was a horrible one and we arrived at 8AM they let us stay in the livingroom to rest until our room was ready how thoughtful is that! Highly reccommend this Bed and Breakfast.
