Why Ellen Colingsworth chose Salem
Our young families are in the area, so this is our home when we visit them. We chose Salem because of vibrant festivals and activities, the stunning historic environment and the excellent public transportation to Boston, Logan airport, and Maine. We hope you enjoy your visit.
What makes this Condo unique
We love this place because of the light filled rooms and the charming turn of the century features like the pillars dividing the dining and living rooms. It is convenient to all the things we need and enjoy. We've kept it simple and uncluttered to make it easy to enjoy during vacations. At the same time, we've chosen some special furniture and touches to make it feel like home.

5 of us stayed at this apartment over the week of Halloween. We were celebrating my moms 70th birthday and she wanted to celebrate it in Salem for Halloween. The apartment was SO cute and clean, it’s put together perfectly. 5 of us fit into it just fine, one person in each single bed, 2 in the queen, and 1 on the sofa sleeper. The location of the condo could not have been more perfect! It was a maximum 10 minute walk to anything downtown and an easy drive to anywhere else outside of the downtown area. It came with 1 parking spot which was perfect for our rental car. The apartment was stocked with everything that we may have needed which was great. The only complaint from my mom is that the TV only provided basic channels and we couldn’t watch any of the other channels (FX, freeform, TNT, etc) but we were passed our time by talking and playing card games which was a nice bonding time for all of us. Overall we all would absolutely recommend this apartment and it was so pleasant working with Ellen and the property manager, Christine.
My friends and I came into town to explore Salem and Boston for a few days, and this location was perfect. The home is super clean and cozy, the neighbors are friendly, and Ellen is a great host. We took a walking tour, visited The House of Seven Gables, drove into Boston for the Freedom Trail, and had a great time.
Another great visit!
This is the third time I have stayed at this condo! I love it and it is in a great location. All the conveniences of home with plenty of extra linens and towels! Very clean and organized, but most of all realaxing! Friendly neighbors too!
Thanks Christine. We're very glad you enjoyed our Salem home. Come again!
Super convenient location
Property was very conveniently located. Updated kitchen and nicely sized dining room and living room. One bathroom was difficult with multiple people and neighbors in the apartment above were very noisy, but it was a quiet area otherwise.
Location, location, location
Parked the car upon arrival and did not use it again until we packed up to come home. Unit is in walking distance to everything that makes Salem a great destination.
Cozy condo in convenient location
We very much enjoyed our stay in Ellen's condo. The location is within walking distance to all Salem attractions, and Salem is a short drive to many other fun locations - we visited Gloucester, MA; Lexington and Concord, MA; Portsmouth, NH; Concord, NH; and Kittery, ME during our vacation.
The condo is very comfortable - 3 bedrooms (2 with twin beds and 1 with a queen bed), dining room, kitchen and living room - all laid out well. My kids enjoyed the wifi and smart TV during evenings. The neighbors are pleasant and I wasn't able to hear them often through the walls.
The kitchen is very well equipped. My family manages significant food allergies - so we do a great deal of cooking even on vacation. We were pleased to find that the kitchen contains everything from the basics to a lemon juicer and rolling pin. The only thing I could have used and didn't find is a set of tongs to turn meat or seafood as it cooks - but a fork worked just fine. There were even a few spices though I brought my own.
The washer and dryer are a definite plus - makes a longer vacation so much easier.
Ellen is very easy to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this condo again in the future.
Tongs are a great suggestion and will get some for the condo. Thank you for the suggestion.
The Peabody Essex Museum is world class. There are too many witch attractions to mention here! The seacoast is stunning. Easy access to Boston and Logan airport and Maine via trains or buses.
