The John Edwards House located in the McIntire district in downtown historic Salem is a full house rental perfect for families traveling together looking to explore Salem. This 5 bedroom 3 bathroom house with a private secluded garden is in the perfect location to see all of the sights and not have to drive to anything! Only a block off of the downtown you can walk to all of the main attractions in Salem, or catch the T or Ferry into Boston for a day trip. Wedding parties and families love it!
The John Edwards House is a full house rental that includes 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a living room and dining area as well as an outdoor patio that seats 8. The first floor has one king bedroom, a good sized kitchen, dining area and full bath. The second floor has a king and queen bedroom, a small kitchenette with a full bath; the third floor has a full bedroom and a room with 2 twin beds and a futon plus another full bath.
Guests have access to the whole house. At check in I will provide a code to enter the back door. Front door keys are located inside for use during your stay. Guests may also use the outdoor seating area in the back garden that seats 8.
Interaction with guests
I work in Salem so I am always nearby if guests need anything during the day. I am always available on my cellphone by call or text. If I do not hear from our guests I usually try to check in at least once to see how they are enjoying the property.
Other things to note
We prefer to rent to families or large groups of friends traveling to Salem for weddings or to see the sights in Salem. This is not a party house! It is in a quiet neighborhood with close neighbors on either side so please respect our neighbors and do not have large groups outside after 10pm. It is located in a safe neighborhood right down the street from the Salem Police station and only a mile from Salem Hospital in case of emergencies.
There is no smoking and no pets allowed in the house. This is an old house with antique furniture so we ask that our guests please respect the house and furnishings and leave things as they were found when they arrive. Please bag all trash and recyclables and leave them in the barrels in the driveway. Wash all dishes and empty the dishwasher before checking out. Lastly if the coffee maker was used please remove used coffee grinds and clean the coffee pot. Thank you!
