                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: I, Philip Marchand and my wife Jocelyn are the owners of the John Edwards House as of October 2012. My mother Peg Femino Camarda bought this house in 2004 and soon after started using it as a vacation rental to supplement her Bed and Breakfast that she ran next door. She opened The Henry Derby House bed and breakfast in 2001 in the house we grew up in after my sister and I moved out. My mother had a passion for business ventures and a joy for life like no one else. She put everything she had into growing her businesses and maintaining these two properties, and loved every minute of it. A lifelong Salem resident, my mother Peg had plenty of stories to share with guests at the B&B and travelers from all over loved hearing them. Although she worked harder than most people I know it never seemed like work for her, as she was always happy doing it. My grandfather's motto that he passed on to her was 'every day is a holiday' and she truly lived by those words. After a brief battle with cancer, my mom Peg passed away on September 5; she was only 56 years old. My wife and I have vowed to carry on my mother's dream and run her businesses as she had hoped to do for many more years. Although sooner than expected, I am excited at the opportunity of taking over the B&B as well as the John Edwards House vacation rental. I am a full-time letter carrier at the Salem Post Office and have been employed there for 10 years. Also a life long Salem resident I grew up in the home that is currently the B&B and lived there until I was 22. I am back in the Henry Derby House living with my wife Jocelyn and our son Xander. I love living in Salem and plan on staying here as long as possible.

                      Why Salem:
                      My mother chose to make a vacation rental out of this property because it is right next to her bed and breakfast. She always loved this house and when our neighbors moved and put the house on the market she jumped at the chance to own it. She originally was going to move in and live their to be close to the B&B but later decided to try renting it as a vacation rental. I also lived in this house for a year after it was purchased and love it.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      By staying at the John Edwards Vacation Rental you will enjoy being right in downtown Salem. It is a first floor unit that overlooks a beautiful cottage garden. Even though you are right in downtown Salem, when you are in the garden you would never know it. The John Edwards House is a great place for families, or adults traveling together. It is truly your home away from home.
