I try to always check-in our guests and fill them in about the apartment and about things to do in Salem. I am available if they have more questions during their stay, but in general respect my guests privacy by not bothering them.
Located about 1.5 miles from downtown Salem, we are located in a quaint Victorian waterfront neighborhood. It's about a 35 minute walk or 10 minute drive to many historic sights and Halloween activities.
The Historic Salem Willows amusement area, one of the oldest in the country, is one block away. A fishing pier, game arcades, kiddie rides, kayak rentals, stand-up paddle board board rental, lots of great fast food including the best popcorn you'll ever taste are just some of the amenities the area has to offer. (Note that The Willows businesses are only open April-Nov)
There are also many beautiful places to walk in the Willows and Winter Island Park areas. Four neighborhood beaches are also within walking distance.
We are 2.4 miles from the commuter train station. Then a 25 minute train ride to Boston.
The sightseeing trolley stops nearby from April-November. The trolley is good for one day of getting around Salem. It costs @$15 for one day unlimited hop on and off, and includes a tour.
Taxis are also readily available.
Many guests opt to walk the 1.5 miles to town. It's about a 35 minute walk.
The public transit station with buses and trains to Boston and trains to Rockport, Gloucester and Newburyport is 2.5 miles away. It's about a 25 minute train ride to Boston.
The apartment is equipped with hardwired smoke and CO2 detectors
This is the 4th time I've stayed at Dale's place - this time for longer than usual (three weeks). The apartment really feels like home, it's got everything needed, is very quiet, cozy, with a really comfortable bed. Having the ocean at your doorstep is a real plus as the weather gets warmer - you can see it from the windows of the apartment and sit in the backyard right on the rocky beach.
Overall, just a great place for one person or couple, i highly recommend it.
This was my first Airbnb experience and it lived up to my (email hidden) beyond! Dale and John were so welcoming and friendly. I got in kind of late (10pm or so) and they stayed in on a Saturday night to make sure I settled in OK. As for the apartment itself, it is adorable! The bedroom is really large and very cozy, great mattress, good TV, nice furnishings. The kitchen was fully equipped and the bathroom!! It had a heated floor which in the 5 degree temps Salem was experiencing the week I was there was truly heaven. I have already booked a stay again for July and would highly recommend Dale's apartment.
Dale's place and our stay in Salem was great. Really enjoyed the view of the water with my coffee in the morning. Dale was very nice and helpful. Thanks Dale!
This is the third time I've stayed at Dale's house/apartment. That in itself should be a good recommendation. She and John are great hosts, and the lodging was as usual cozy, quiet and just right.
Had such a lovely time over the weekend. Dale was so great and accommodating. We could not get in until later in the evening which she was perfectly ok with. And once we did get in, she easily spent 20 minutes showing us around, giving us tips and advice for historic Salem, and mapped where all our interests were. The scenery from the backyard is unbelievable. Cannot wait to come visit again!!! Thank you for everything!
We had a pleasant stay at Dale's apartment in Salem. It was post Halloween craziness, which suited us just fine. The apartment is comfortable, and the view lovely. We did not have a car so it was a bit of a distance from town. We walked to town in the
morning but took a taxi to return after dinner. The highlight of our stay in Salem was the PEM museum.
We really enjoyed our week long stay at Dales! We couldn't have found a better or more centrally located place to stay. It is very cozy and well-equipped. The pictures don't do the view justice. We will miss waking up to it.
Great location approximately 30 minute walk into town the pictures where exactly how it looked thanks dale for sharing your home
Dale was a great host, very helpful and knowledgable about Salem.
The apartment was a lovely centre for visiting the town, and was clean and very comfortable.
Dale Lewinski's Historic Salem Oceanfront 2 Room Apartment is wonderful! Our only regret is not planning a longer stay in Salem.
The accomodation are quaint and comfortable. Dale has done a wonderful job in making this very private apartment everything you could want. Private, comfortable, spotlessly clean plus a million dollar view, what more could one ask for? Dale is a wealth of information on Salem. She made us feel right at home. The God Lord willing, we will be back.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
