What our guests are saying

“Amazing heritage house.  We were super lucky to get an available room because it is usually fully booked. The house was clean and tidy and made us feel at home. There are only 3 rooms available in the house and they are all named after famous “witches”. We stayed in Rebecca Nurse room; it has a comfortable queen sized bed and is well furnished. Chocolate, coffee and tea are available right outside the room. Bob was a wonderful host and he cooked very delicious breakfast and made the best bread. He also sat down for breakfast with us and chatted with us throughout. Location of the house is very good and we were able to walk to all the places of interest. I will definitely stay with Bob again if I go back to” – Gina Seh

Another Stellar Stay How can someone put into words how amazing our stay was at the Morning Glory B&B. This is our 2nd stay at this stellar Inn.
The rooms and grounds are kept immaculate. The breakfast is phenomenal. Bob is the perfect host. Oh, and Willow, how we love her. Such a sweet loving guardian of the inn. The roof top deck adds a perfect place to peek and gaze at water. We will always try to stay here any time we are ”

Beautiful Place, Perfect Location. Wow what can I say, Bob is the most gracious host ever!! His place is beautiful as well as spotless! You can see the pride he has for his home and all who stay there. We had the 3rd floor suite and it was beautiful, great water views and within walking distance to many places and right across the street from The House Of Seven Gables. The breakfast in the morning was just like being at a fine dining restaurant only a lot more cozy. Can not wait to visit and stay again!” – Debra P.

History FoundSuch a beautiful Inn. Morning Glory truly stands out. The flowers at the entrance make a statement. We enjoyed the Sarah Good suite on the third floor. We loved the extra sitting room and the rooftop patio with views of the ocean. Bob was a gracious host and breakfast was a great start to the day. And so conveniently located for walking around town. We would definitely stay here whenever we return to Salem.” – Phillip B.

“Beautiful!. Beautiful B&B and in walking distance to all the attractions. Bob makes a great host; warm and hospitable. The room was clean and cozy. I was especially impressed that Bob was willing to provide separate gluten and corn free options to accommodate my allergies. Thank you again for a wonderful experience in the cute city of Salem, MA! – Eau Claire

Highly recommended!! We spent a five nights at the Morning Glory, and we could not have been happier with our choice. I had never been to MA, but had always wanted to visit Salem. We are from a very small town in the Midwest, and Bob’s hospitality was just what we were looking for when away from home. Our room was very well taken care of throughout the week, and everything was clean. The breakfasts were some of the best meals we had all week, and Bob and the other guests gave us some great recommendations for restaurants and activities.” – Jessica

“Where to begin, my husband and I stayed at the morning glory this past weekend. The location is perfect. Walking distance from everything. We stayed in the sarah good room. We had the whole third floor to ourself, our own entrance and patio overlooking the water. The room was beautiful, immaculately clean. And very cozy. Words can not describe how good breakfast was. One morning we had pancakes with fresh fruit and top with walnuts. Bob also makes the best homemade cheese bread. Bob the owner is the most kind, sweet and hard working man. He makes you feel right at home. I’m very picky with b&b and this surpass my expectations! We can’t wait to go back next year! I recommend this b&b 100%”
