The home was unique and very cozy. Close to everything going on around Salem. The owners are very knowledgeable about the history of Salem and other attractions in the area.

Matt and Kelly were the perfect hosts! They accommodated our early check-in without issue, and were so welcoming to their beautiful inn. They provided us keys to both our room and the home so we could come and go as we please, and provided us with tons of recommendations for dinner, entertainment and general things to do around the city! Could not recommend the Stepping Stone Inn more and we will definitely be returning for another stay next year!

The common areas are wonderful, open and well appointed. Our room required rather steep stairs to access. It had a in suite bath which was excellent but it had taken up some of the room to have been added. A little tight but all told it has been a excellent experience.
