Great location90% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Enjoy a peaceful stay in part of a 1938 cottage one block from Englewood Park. The neighborhood is an easy mile or so by foot, car, bus, or pedicab to the Oregon State Capitol, Willamette University and downtown Salem and a half mile to the Oregon State Hospital. Consider flying into Portland, taking the Hut Shuttle Bus to the Salem Airport, riding in a pedicab, or your host's car, to your charming provisional Salem home. Transportation is available from the nearby Amtrak station as well.

Ruth was an amazing host. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. She left fresh fruit for us as well as a good amount of other things for us to use in the fridge. She messaged me saying we could pick berries nearby and then she came out to tell us what all was okay to eat (were…
