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 house with a great mattress, parked our car in their off street designated spots and ate twice at Bella Verona while visiting the spectacular Peabody Essex Museum. We will certainly return to Amanda Payson to stay whenever we are in Salem, MA.
