My boyfriend and I just stayed here (july 5-8) and what a gem. This place is so damn cute! Ada and Don are the best people. From the minute we walked through that door till we left, we felt like family!
When we were there is was about 90 and the A/C was running in the room before we even came in! it was so cool in that room, that i had to sleep with the blankets on! We stayed in the "pink" room which was fine to us. It over looked the beautiful backyard. We were both smokers and the out side deck for smokers was perfect! it was in the shade and just relaxing.
We are both so happy we stayed here, and when we visit again we will not stay anywhere else!!

Thanks Ada and Don,

Love Joe and Cody

We had a very pleasant stay at Amelia Payson House. The room was beautiful, very clean and quiet. We enjoyed the small living room where we could have a coffee and a little snack. Ada was indeed very friendly and available whenever we needed an information (see comments from Steven S.). We particularly enjoyed the short walking distance to the train station. It's a great formula to visit Boston.

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 and quiet rooms. Walking distance from the main attractions and train station of Salem. I would not hesitate to recommend this B & B to my best friend.

Steven, Thank you for contributing your comments to TripAdvisor. Happy to hear you and your friends had a good time during your visit and found the train access to Boston convenient from Salem and our B&B. Always glad to track down information for guests, especially when a new season bring new changes to schedules and hours of operation. Not sure I will ever get a straight answer as to whether that $3 train fee applies to the Salem Station, but when in doubt, purchase before you board. Again, thank you for your kind comments and offer to recommend us to your “best friend”. ;-)

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 children over 12. Off street parking was also a huge plus, since parking can be a challenge in Salem.

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 temps, but what is normal anymore, anywhere. Glad that you enjoyed breakfast and meeting other folks around the breakfast table; a great place to share adventures and make recommendations to Salem’s best places and fun activities. Again, thank you for taking the time to post your helpful comments……Ada May & Don
