I Liked Salem
I Liked Salem
Yes, I enjoyed my first ever visit to Salem and this house made the trip all the better. The house is nicely located between downtown and some nice, old-fashioned neighborhoods. I parked my car for the week and used it only once for groceries. I walked or biked easily everywhere. This old house has been beautifully and functionally updated and worked well our visit. Not big, but just the right size with all the amenities that we needed. Thanks for having us.

Location Is Great!

This was a perfect small house rental. Nicely updated and renovated, very well maintained and supplied with all the essentials. We were perfectly comfortable here for a two-week stay, even during some unusually hot days in August. Because we have family nearby in Salem and visit often, we'll definitely consider a repeat stay.

We had a great experience with this rental. We stayed 3 nights over our wedding weekend and found it to be everything we needed. The property was clean inside and out and the remodeling is beautiful! We especially enjoyed the gorgeous shower upstairs. Many thoughtful touches were the cherry on top. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Loved the house!! My family lives in Independence, about 20 minutes away and we were there for a graduation. It worked out great and the house accommodated all of us for a barbecue one night. Very comfortable home and the owners were right there to help if needed. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great vacation spot, lots to do and good walking area. .We hope to stay again soon.

Wonderful Place to Stay
Wonderful Place to Stay
This was wonderful place to stay and I highly recommend it. The house is an extremely clean, well appointed, newly renovated craftsman style bungalow that is perfectly located near many of the areas best restaurants, parks, bicycle lanes, running trails and one of the nicest lap pool that I have ever used. The owners were very friendly and went the extra mile to make sure we that had everything for an enjoyable stay. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer :)

My wife and I as well as our two kids had a last minute trip to Salem. We were very pleased with the house and the comforts! We were the first to stay in the house and everything was new and fresh. We had family over and 10 of us fit comfortably in the living room/dining room area. It was very quiet and close in to town. Joseph, one of the owners was helpful in helping us figure out to use the new dishwasher and how to access internet. The house had a combination lock so we were able to come and go very easy. We would recommend this place to any of our friends! Peter and Jane Feb 2012

Perfect landing spot for my recent business trip to Salem with my family. IDEAL LOCATION - Clean and tidy and everything we needed. Very quite and comfortable but close to restaurants and grocery shopping for supplies. Photos and description spot on. We will definitely book when we are in Salem again. Owners very attentive and made sure that we got in OK. We use VRBO frequently and would highly recommend this property
