A friend of mine and I went away for a quick weekend getaway to get away from kids and the "mother" routine. We chose the Northey Bed & Breakfast because we like the look of the rooms, the location, and all of the amenities included.
We were warmly greeted by Ann, and then later by Flora. We were given a nice tour of the place, our keys, and made to feel very comfortable. We were looking forward to a great weekend.
We were very pleasantly surprised the next morning when we were greeting by Flora and SERVED in the kitchen area. She cooked the most delicious gourmet breakfasts - egg frittatas, fresh fruit cups (cut from fresh fruit, not from a Dole can), coffee, orange juice, freshly baked, warm scones from scratch.... It was not the self serve cold continental breakfast we were expecting!
The beds were very comfortable, rooms were large and in the common areas there was plenty to do - wireless internet, a computer, telephone with free long distance, plenty to read, movies to watch. Also, in the kitchen area snacks and drinks were available AT NO CHARGE! We had access to the refrigerator and a coffee pot, microwave. It really felt like home.
The location is perfect for exploring downtown, historic Salem. We parked our car and did not need it until we left. We were able to walk to Pickering Wharf as well as all of the local attractions - Salem Witch Museum, Wax Museum, Witch's Village, House of the Seven Gables, the National Park Maritime Museum and more.
Not only was the service top notch while we were there, but after we left as well. Half way home (a 6 hour drive), I realized that I left my own pillow on the bed. I called Flora and asked if she could mail it to me, with me paying shipping of course. I got a call back right away and a message today that it was in the mail.
I would definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone who asks. As a travel agent as well, I will be promoting this to my clients!

Thank you for a fantastic review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the breakfasts and appreciated that they are made from scratch. You were actually in the Captain's Quarters which is very comparable to the Woodbury room.

I'm happy to hear that you had a great time here and find the location convenient to attractions and restaurants. Of course I want you to sleep well here and also at home, so was glad to return the pillow you left.
Thank you in advance for your referrals to travel clients. Hope to see you again.
