The space
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A TAX EXEMPT LISTING. This is suite of 2 adjoining rooms (a master bedroom & a sitting area) for rent an owner-occupied home. This listing is exempt from both state & local excise tax on any stays of 32 nights or longer. For short-term stays, this listing is classified as a "Bed & Breakfast Home" by the state of Massachusetts and as such is exempt from registration and from charging state or local excise tax (Massachusetts defines a "Bed and Breakfast Home" as a private, owner- occupied home in which 3 or fewer rooms are rented and that serves breakfast- and that's exactly what this. GUEST PLEASE NOTE: This is my private home in which I reside. I rent out a total of 1 suite which is divided into 2 adjoining rooms, each of which has a bed in it. and and serve a very simple, continental breakfast to short-term guests. Extended stay guests enjoy full kitchen privileges. Please let me know if the system is adding tax to your total. *You should not be taxed*.

----------------------

Historic 3-story townhome built in 1809. Cozy, clean and bright w/21 (!) windows and all wood floors. I like to think it's got a "homey" vibe while still being fresh & uncluttered.

I'm a frustrated interior designer at heart (my not-so-secret dream is to have my own HGTV show) and had a lot of fun furnishing the home with repurposed antiques and other fun pieces to create a welcoming & comfortable guest suite.

The suite is on its own floor (making it very private) and consists of 2 bedrooms which adjoin. The little bedroom (that I like to call "the library") is one of my favorite spots in the house: a cozy twin-size mahogany daybed under two windows that overlook historic Salem rooftops- the perfect spot to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book.

The spacious adjoining master has an extremely comfortable brand new queen-sized bed (mattress w/adjustable firmness, new therapedic topper & high-quality linens) a large executive desk with excellent WIFI, faux fireplace w/remote, & 6 windows (one w/a peek of the water.)

The home is in a prime Salem location on the edge of the historic district, 3 houses up from a small neighborhood beach & walking path & a short stroll to everything that makes Salem fun.

2-week minimum requested. Longer term stays possible, please inquire.
Perfect as a home base for traveling nurses & other professionals (Several hospitals are very close by- for example:
North Shore Medical Center is a 4 minute drive, Beverly Hospital is 10 minutes, Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester is 25 minutes, Mass General hospital is 35 minutes door to door.)

PLEASE NOTE: Since I also reside here, references and phone conversation may be requested for guests wishing to book longer stays in order to ascertain compatibility.

Guest access
This is a true home away from home, and you will have access to everything with the exception of owner's room.

Your suite is on the 3rd floor. The 2nd floor bath and 1st floor common areas are shared with your hostess. You will have a dedicated private medicine cabinet and large storage cabinet for your toiletries in the bathroom.

Full kitchen use with all pots/pans/supplies provided (please avoid bringing products containing pork or shellfish into the house.)

Plenty of easy, free street parking available.

Other things to note
Since this is a longer-term situation and I reside in the home, some communication is required to establish compatibility before booking. References may also be requested and depending on length of stay, you may be asked to sign a rental agreement.

Guests are welcome to watch the large flat screen TV in the living room (Roku & free Netflix available) or stream from your own laptop upstairs (there is no tv on the 3rd floor).

Your space is quite private as it's on its own floor. There is no door from the 3rd floor landing into the small bedroom. French doors separate the small bedroom into the large master.

THIS IS A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY (no smoking inside the home OR anywhere on the premises please).

Location

Salem, Massachusetts, United States

You'll LOVE the location- a short walk to everything that's fun about Salem- but still in a peaceful residential area. 3 min to commuter rail or ferry- easy commute to Boston & easy access to other fun and interesting north shore towns.

Steps to a small neighborhood beach. Lots of other great beaches, walking paths, parks (Salem Common, where lots of events take place, is a block and a half away), cute shops, antiques, restaurants, movie theater, world class museums, attractions, historic sites- all an easy walk.

Extremely convenient to several northshore hospitals & very easy commute to Mass General Hospital in Boston (comfortable 25 min train ride to North Station + a 5 min walk!) Perfect for traveling medical professionals. Longer stays possible, please inquire.

Greetings, fellow travelers! I'm a semi-retired Hebrew language instructor, originally from Northern California. I love exploring new destinations/cultures/languages, crafting & home decorating. (Yes, I admit it- I'm totally addicted to HGTV! Joanna Gains is my idol!) As your hostess, my goal is to create a cozy, welcoming environment that truly feels like your own "home away from home." I'm happy to provide "concierge" services and recommendations to make sure you have the best trip ever. I'll be delighted to socialize & hear about all your day's adventures if you're so inclined- or feel free to relax & retreat to your own private floor. Your choice :) I look forward to welcoming you soon!
