Stepping Stones was perfect for our getaway! The house was tastefully and comfortably decorated. Our mattress (manufactured in Salem!) was incredibly comfortable. Hosts were friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming and you couldn't pick a better location - Our car remained parked except for our Saturday outing to Gloucester. Couldn't of asked for more....!!!

An enjoyable stay
Stayed in this B&B so as to experience Salem in October. It is located in the heart of most activity, within walking distance to everything. The room (Boston room) was comfortable but small with little storage space. This was not unexpected as the house itself was built in 1846. The owners ,Matt and Kelly, are very friendly and very helpful in suggesting restaurants and sites to see. Halloween season in Salem is truly unique and experiencing at the Stepping Stone Inn enhanced our enjoyment.
