The Garret at The Dowager Countess is a newly renovated, self-contained, 3rd-floor apartment in an 1870's mansard Victorian home. Located on the north corner of the Salem Common, in the heart of the Washington Square Historic District, The Garret is easy walking distance to all major attractions, restaurants, and shops in Salem. Guests have two off-street parking spaces.

The space
They say it's all about location! Well, here you go. Experience the rich history of Salem in one of the most sought-after locations of the Washington Square Historic District.

The Garret has a master bedroom with a king-size bed and on-suite bath with double sinks, and a second bedroom with a queen-size bed and full bathroom. The open-concept living room/kitchen/dining room includes a large exterior deck with two chaise lounges and a table with built-in bench.

Renovated with history and sustainability in mind, the wide plank pine floors were salvaged sub-flooring, the floor tiles were hand-cut from old roof slate, and the fir counters were repurposed from the original ceiling. The garden has been called a sanctuary. The 1,300 gallon pond is home to over a dozen koi and goldfish. Improvements include newly resurfaced asphalt driveway and expanded hardscape, new roof, new heating and cooling, new electrical, and brand new deck attached to The Garret.
