Interaction with Guests

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My daughter and I picked Salem because it was kind of in the middle of a bunch of colleges we wanted to tour. It was so nice having a clean, comfortable place to come back to every night after being out all day. My favorite part of the day was looking out at the ocean while I had my morning cup of coffee.
    I would definatly come back.

  • 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.

    April 2014
  • 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.

    December 2013
  • 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!

    November 2013
  • 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.

    November 2013
  • 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.

    November 2013
  • Great location approximately 30 minute walk into town the pictures where exactly how it looked thanks dale for sharing your home

    November 2013
  • Dale was a great host, very helpful and knowledgable about Salem.

My husband and I moved back to Salem Willows two years ago and have been working on renovating the house ever since. It's a nice quiet neighborhood, except on the Fourth of July, and the view can't be beat. There is a two room apartment in the basement, that is half above grade and also looks out on the ocean. Rather than rent it out yearly, we thought we would try renting seasonally, and get the chance to meet new people. I am, as my son calls me, a "creative whirlwind" who loves to do many things, including, filmmaking and screenwriting, oil and acrylic painting, cooking and baking, gardening, beading and knitting. Traveling is also high on the list. I also love tea and brew a pot of whole leaf tea every afternoon.
