My husband and I planned a weekend trip to Ipswich and Salem. We took the commuter rail to Ipswich from Boston and planned to walk to the B&B since it was so close to the station (a little under a mile). Well, we got lost and I called the innkeeper, Frank, who told us to just stay where we were and he could come pick us up. This was extremely nice of him especially since it was technically after hours, around 8 pm and quite cold outside. He drove us to the B&B and showed us around and told us about the house, which is actually a few houses put together which were built in the 1600's. Just an absolutely gorgeous house. We had mentioned we hadn't had dinner yet and he recommended some places in town and told us he would be happy to drop us off somewhere, which again was very nice of him. We stayed in the Federal Queen Room. It was beautiful and felt like home. It had a fireplace in it which you could actually use if you wanted. There was a half bath in the room but you would have to go down some private stairs to a full bath to shower which was not bad at all. The breakfast was to die for! We stayed two nights and wanted to stay longer just for the breakfast! It is a sit down breakfast starting at 8:30 am (unless they don't have to many guests, then they will ask what time you would like), they make a place setting at the table for everyone and serve you there. They make their own juice, give you a bowl of fruit, coffee, and a different entree each day. SO GOOD! My husband and I ventured into Salem our first day and the second day we stayed around Ipswich. Frank and his wife Joanne gave us so many recommendations of things to do and see! Frank again offered to take us somewhere. He was just wonderful. My husband and I felt like we were right at home. We plan on going back again to see some of the attractions they had told us about and will be staying here again.
