The Coach House Inn

I was at the Coach House Inn yesterday, and found myself reminded of how charming this B&B is! Innkeeper Patricia Kessler does a wonderful job of maintaining the charm and comfort of this 1879 Victorian home on Lafayette Street.

The details are wonderful. From the chandeliers...

... to the in room sinks, especially this one built into a first-floor room, which I found completely charming!
The inn is filled with light, Oriental carpets, and plants, making it feel especially comfortable.

Many of the rooms have fireplaces - some real, and some faux (can you tell the difference?!).

There are 11 rooms, making it one of Salem's largest B&Bs. It is located in an historic district, between downtown Salem and Marblehead, near Forest River Park and Salem State University, and just two blocks from the harbor.

Continental breakfast is served in your room each morning, which is fantastic for people who love the charm and uniqueness of a bed & breakfast but dread the social aspects of breakfast in the dining room (you know who you are!). And who doesn't love sipping coffee and eating croissant in bed?

Best of all? The Coach House Inn still has some availability during October this year. Visit for information and rates.
