This video is part of the Salem Spotlight series in which I tell you everything you need to know about attractions, restaurants, hotels, witch shops, tours, and a bunch of other locations in Salem, Massachusetts, all in bite-sized videos. Let’s dive deeper into The Salem Inn.

 

History

Captain Nathaniel West was the first Salem captain to circumnavigate the entire globe. In 1834, he built the West House which reflects the craftsmanship of the Federal period. About 35 years ago, Dick and Diane Pabich bought the house, and converted it into The Salem Inn.

Shortly after, the couple also purchased the Peabody House and the Curwen House. After all the necessary renovations, they managed to expand the Inn to more than 40 rooms. Each is stuffed with historical background and tone. The Pabichs in general have spent tons of time supporting Salem-area real estate development projects in order to help revitalize the community.

 


 

What’s Inside The Salem Inn

If you want a slice of this historical city, but also want to spend the night in a peaceful and serene location, you definitely have to check out The Salem Inn. The Inn’s three elegantly restored houses are located in the heart of the city, so you’ll be within walking distance of nearly everything Salem has to offer.

The owners offer a wide variety of unique rooms, from one-bedroom singles to two-bedroom family suites. Also, you can join them for breakfast or even to relax with the “afternoon wine and cheese” option. Actually, the breakfast room is located in the original kitchen of the Captain Nathaniel West House!

 

My Experience at The Salem Inn

Of all the places I’ve stayed in Salem, Massachusetts, The Salem Inn is my personal favorite. That being said, there are definitely a few things you should know before you book your stay.

The biggest consideration is probably parking. The West House, which is the main building, is fairly limited in terms of on-site parking, while the Curwen and Peabody Houses both feature on-site lots.

I’ve never stayed at the Peabody, but of the two that I have slept at, I prefer The Curwen House. It’s a little bit farther from town (a few blocks away from town, past The Witch House on Essex St.), but it’s such a short walk, I’ll take it anytime. I’ve stayed at The Curwen during both the peak and off-peak seasons and it remains the place I check before any others when I’m visiting town.

The interior of the Curwen is absurdly charming. It shares a common aesthetic with the rest of The Salem Inn. In-room fireplaces, clean and classic design, a general lean toward a more colonial feel – all of these are, in my opinion, perfect set-pieces for your stay in Salem.

In truth, I actually prefer the location of The Curwen as well. It’s just far enough from town that you genuinely feel out of Salem, but just close enough that a quick crepe at Gulu Gulu Cafe is just a few minutes away. The traffic also doesn’t tend to back up that far down Essex and, if you’re crafty, there are ways to avoid having to drive through the busier parts of Essex and Summer Streets entirely when leaving from or arriving to the Curwen.

Honestly, even though I can’t personally vouch for The Peabody, I have no doubt that it’s wonderful as well. So I feel pretty confident in saying that any stay at The Salem Inn is worth the cost (even if it is a peak cost).
