“Joan's B and B”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We stayed here last year and I am surprised that there are so many excellent ratings. Joan is a lovely woman but her B and B is nothing to rave about. It is fairly clean but dated and if you stay in the double room, you share the bathroom with Joan. Breakfast was okay and she makes you welcome but I fear these reviews will lead you to expect something above what is on offer.

Joan is welcoming and friendly in her small b & b, she has just 3 rooms and she does indeed treat her guests as one of her family, a fresh cooked breakfast which is very good, you are invited to watch tv with her, you stay in her home and Joan we think that you are great, excellent value.

It’s like come and visit your grandma. The breakfast is delicious, Joan will get you almost whatever you like.
The house located In a residential neighborhood, easy to get to by car, very good location for Salem, Gloucester, Boston, and I guess all North shore.
It’s a private house with 3 guest rooms, 2 with shared bath and 1 with private, we stayed with the private bath.
Clean comfy rooms, nice and quiet, at our staying at least.
Joan is a great, frendly person.
In conclusion, definitely a home away from home :)

Stayed for two weeks on vacation! Great location and great price! Beautiful room with private bathroom. Full homemade breakfast in the morning was delicious. Coffee fresh and jam was Joan's own! Bus on street took me all over the North Shore. Wi-Fi and Large Screen TV was added bonus! Enjoyed it! Would stay again. Oh and a nice in-ground pool! Thanks Joan! Tom

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice! Beds have special memory foam toppers. Never slept better. Can't go wron...

My husband and I were visiting family and needed a place to stay. Joan's place was just right. No it is not a posh, historic kind of B and B, but is was great. In a residential neighborhood, easy to get to by car, clean comfy rooms, nice and quiet and dark for sleeping and oh, the breakfasts! YUM!
You will need a car if you are a tourist as it is not near the T but it is a 15 minute drive to a T station into downtown Boston, and very convenient to north shore sites, 10 minutes from Salem, etc. Only one room has a private bathroom, but it was NOT a problem sharing the bathroom. We are a couple in our early 50's. Joan is super nice !

Joan made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We watched her large screen TV on her airy porch. We were able to put our car snacks in her frig. No continental breakfast here-Joan serves a full homemade breakfast. Everything is delicious and made from scratch. Her coffee cake, her jams, French toast and cheese omelets are great. Our rooms were comfortable, quiet, spotless; the shower was excellent. Joan recommended perfect places to eat. She was so easy to talk to. There is also a beautiful pool.

Room Tip: Book early in summer as Joan fills up quickly
