“So glad I picked the Morning Glory B&B for our trip to Salem”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

Bob and Marcel are gracious hosts. Their B&B is immaculate and the breakfasts are absolutely delicious. Bob and Marcel greet you when you arrive and welcome you into their home like you are long lost relatives or friends visiting from out of town. Marcel is an excellent cook, and you can tell he enjoys making breakfast for all the guests who stay at the Morning Glory. Every morning you are greeted by Marcel and Bob who always have a smile on their faces and they are genuinely interested in what your plans are for the day. When you return in the evening they ask you how your day was and if you enjoyed it. They offer advise on places to eat and where you may have to call ahead for reservations. Our room was immaculate, clean and comfortable. I feel that meeting Marcel and Bob has enriched my life and I would stay at their B&B again on any future trips I make to Salem. I would like to thank them for making our stay there so wonderful!

This is by far and away the best place to stay, forget hotels and other B and B's, in fact this isnt like any other B and B you will have stayed in. Bob and Marcel make you so welcome and feed you so well you will not want to leave. We only had 2 nights here before moving on but wished we had longer and will stay again - if you will have us Bob? We had the Elizabeth Howe room which was perfect with a private access to the first floor deck and right next to the common room - this had a plentiful supply of coffee and water, a fridge and glasses, computer and so much more. Take time to take the Morning Glory photo album up to the top deck with a coffee - or wine and just relax. It really is the most perfect of places in an ideal location THANK YOU BOTH! xx

Thank you folks for your splendid review of your recent stay with us at Morning Glory! So happy you found Morning Glory to be "the most perfect of places in an ideal location". Thank you for your very kind words!! So glad you enjoyed looking at the Morning Glory photo album of pictures taken, before, during and after the extensive renovations 18 years ago in converting our historic home into a bed & breakfast!! It truly was a labor of love and we feel so very lucky and blessed to be able to do what we love more than anything! We hope that you can come and stay with us again and until then, we send you both our very best!

Warm regards,
Bob & Marcel

From the moment we were met at the door by Marcel to the goodbye hugs from Bob at Salem Station our stay was sheer pleasure from start to finish.
Bob and Marcel could not have been more welcoming hosts to such a magnificent idyllic home.
We stayed in the Sarah Good suite on the top floor which had a lovely sitting room and a huge bed tstefully furnishings throughout. There is a communal patio deck on the top floor where we chatted to other guests at night. The rooms are soundproofed enough so that you don't hear anyone and our sitting room came equipped with a fridge and a coffee maker.
Marcels cooking is amazing and his baked beans were so good that even my husband ate them which is a food he will not touch at home. Marcel does his own cooking and his attention to detail really shows in all the fresh baked products we had at breakfast. Being diabetic Bob and Marcel went out of their way to ensure that there were plenty of choices for me at breakfast. The communal dining at breakfast is a great way to get to know your fellow guests and it was lovely the way that Bob joined us for coffee and was able to offer useful advice on places to eat and visit. To say that we were reluctant to leave is an understatement . The property is fantastic but Bob and Marcel really make it special and without their hospitality it would not be the same. Long may they continue there and make every guest feel so special. We felt we arrived as strangers but departed as friends.

The Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast exceeded all of our expectations.
First, the facts: Morning Glory is kept immaculately clean and the hosts are meticulous in their attention to the smallest details; from the ideal setting, to the wonderful bed linens and bath towels, to the lovely furnishings, charming décor and beautifully laid out breakfasts- everything is perfect.
Second, the intangibles: ♥Bob and Marcel♥ are charming, warm, and funny. They immediately make a person feel welcome and at ease. I think it would be practically impossible to talk with them for 15 minutes without falling in love with both of them and wishing they were part of your family. Seriously- they are two of the most remarkable people I have had the pleasure of meeting.
In a world where too often people seem to want to get by doing as little as they can, it is refreshing to come across people like Bob and Marcel who work so hard to make their guest’s visit relaxing and enjoyable. They go out of their way to remember your food and beverage preferences and are always ready with touring suggestions (and thankfully, directions). The breakfasts that Marcel prepares are magnificent and I fear I will never again have a blueberry muffin that will live up to the ones he bakes.
Even though we left the Morning Glory too early for breakfast on our last day, Marcel had packed us a brown bag with the blueberry muffins, cheesy bread, banana bread, butter, and some mini Babybel cheese that my husband really likes.
Truly, if you are going to Salem and are looking for a quiet, charming B & B in an ideal location, with perfect hosts, look no further- you’ve found it at the Morning Glory!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are wonderful- you can't go wrong.

We planned a 2 day family trip to Salem. Staying at Morning Glory just added to the mystery & history of the area. The owners went above and beyond with the accommodations; thinking of subtle details and providing necessities that you would only think of finding in your own home. Bob & Marcel were extremely personable and friendly and a well of knowledge about the area. They provided us with excellent recommendations for dining. It really felt like home away from home. We've been to Salem many times and now we're spoiled. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Hi Danny and many thanks for your "5 star" review of Morning Glory! We honestly enjoy spoiling our guests, as you mentioned, in order to make their stay a memorable one! That is just part of the fun of running a bed & breakfast. You and your family were an absolute delight to have stay with us and we wanted to thank you all again for the wonderful bottles of wine you left as a "thank you" for us! This was not at all expected but we truly appreciated your generosity!! A big hug to all and until your return visit, we wish you all the best!

My boyfriend and I stayed here in April from England, and we honestly couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Bob and Marcel were so welcoming and their house is just fantastic, spotless and beautifully furnished, and so homely. We had everything we needed, bottled water/tea/coffee/cake(!) whenever we wanted it, we were very well looked after. Breakfasts were amazing, as soon as we came downstairs it was ready and waiting and it was lovely to chat with other guests and Bob at the breakfast table. We were also given advice on local tourist attractions, good restaurants and we were very kindly given a lift to our rental car place by Bob on the last day. Absolutely superb hosts, you can see why they are so successful and we would like to say a very special thank you to you both for making our stay so pleasant. We will definitely be recommending and hopefully be back in the future! Kat and Paul x
