My husband and I were very excited to find a place just a stone throw from our son's house. I need to eat gluten free and Joan was very accommodating to my needs. She also was concerned that I got enough to eat! The bedroom was neat and the beds comfortable. We even had our own teddy bears. She allowed...

A friend and I stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the time we were able to spend with Joan. She makes you comfortable and feeling like a member of her family. The beds were comfortable with ironed sheets and pillow cases! The B & B is a short drive away from Salem. A great stay....

I recently had a Conference in Peabody, MA and did not want to stay at the Hotel there. In looking for an alternative, I found Joan's Bed and Breakfast. My stay there was extremely pleasant. Her home was like going to a friend's house. Joan is a wonderful hostess and guided me to nearby restaurants. One of the reviews was...

My wife, niece and I went to the Boston/Salem area for a "history trip". I found Joan on Tripadvisor and saw she had very good reviews. All I can say is Joan was great. She was so nice. She made it an enjoyable week. Joan's is not what I would call a "traditional" bed and breakfast, but we would not...

We stayed here fall of 2015. It is like going to stay with your grandmother or favorite aunt. Everything is very clean. Joan makes an excellent breakfast. Try her homemade freezer strawberry/rhubarb jam - delicious. We were 2 woman traveling alone but felt very safe here. It is close to Salem. Very good price. Joan makes you feel very welcome.

My husband was searching for a reasonable place to stay within a short drive of Manchester by the Sea so we could visit with family during a short stay. He came across Joan's Bed and Breakfast and as luck would have it, she had just had a cancellation. We could not believe how convenient it was to 128 and Salem...

I stayed here for 3 nights in July, fairly last minute with my two teenage daughters and it was just wonderful. Joan is warm, attentive and generous and we were extremely comfortable and felt very welcome. This is a traditional B&B in the sense that you get amazing homemade breakfasts, and that makes the price just about unbeatable. It's true...

We were looking for accommodations around Boston but not in the middle of the city. It seemed that every hotel was booked in the surrounding areas but when we looked up Peabody, Joan's showed up. She went out of her way to prepare the room at the last minute and suggested a local Italian American restaurant for dinner. This is...

Joan was very welcoming and is an excellent cook. Be sure to try her jams and ask for the baked apple! This is not the traditional b&b- it is her one- floor home. So we shared her bathroom and our only privacy was in our room. But overall the stay was very nice and the value was great.

A warm cozy home run by the owner Joan. Comfy beds, good food, and good company. Close to all amenities as well. Really enjoyed the "home away from home" feel here, would definitely stay again if in the area.
