  • Clean, convenient, and lovely place to stay!

    "We rented the house for a family reunion and it was perfect for our stay. Everyone had their own rooms (we also rented out the basement, which was very comfortable) and we all enjoyed the air-conditioned house during a blistery hot weekend in July. The mattresses and pillows were all quite comfortable, and Mary made sure each room had an AC and fan. There was plenty of space to lounge around between the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The house was perfectly located too - we could easily walk 20 min to downtown Salem to take in the sites, or just drive 5 min and be downtown in no time. Parking was very easy (the large driveway accommodated our three cars) and we took evening strolls around the charming neighborhood. The house is stocked with brochures, directions, maps, and suggestions on things to do, and Mary was the ultimate host. She suggested an itinerary for our family, gave perfect restaurant recommendations, and had insider knowledge about the town and its history. Mary is so nice and very easy to work with - she responded to my multiple inquiries quickly and politely, and I enjoyed meeting her when we checked in. We would definitely recommend staying at Leslie's Retreat and making a visit to Salem - we were there three days and could have stayed another week at least. Thank you Mary for making our family reunion perfect and memorable!"

  • Pond House

    "The Pond House was a great vacation haven where my family spent one week enjoying the Idyllic surroundings. We felt like we were in a fairy tale place with ducks, frogs, turtles and fantastic birds. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the beach almost every day. The kitchen appliances and the electronics could use an upgrade, but once we got use to the quirks, we managed to focus on the joys of being together and the peace and serenity around us. A great place to vacation."

  • Lovely cottage, location and amenities!

    "Our family of 7 met at Golden Cottage for a pre 4th of July escape! The house was wonderful: large, sunny, immaculate with a perfect yard for water fights (for kids of all ages) and bocce… A fully equipped kitchen, two completely remodeled baths, two levels of decks, and lots of extra bath and bed linens are just a few of the homes features. We enjoyed watching the lobster boats in the cove in the evening and our trips to Rockport and all of Cape Ann. The quarry at Halibut State Park is a favorite. Thank you so much for a memorable week!!"
