"One of Fodor's Best B&B's"

Review from Fodor's Travel Online, Inc., 1999
"One of the best places to stay in Salem, the Amelia
Payson House is within walking distance of all the town's attractions, only a block or so away from the many museums in the historic district, and a brief stroll across the common from the town center and the sea. Built in 1845 for Amelia and Edward Payson, the Greek Revival house has bright, airy rooms with floral-print wallpaper, brass and four-poster canopy beds, nonworking marble fireplaces, and white wicker. The parlor downstairs contains a grand piano, while upstairs a reading room is full of visitor information. A Continental breakfast of fresh fruits and home-baked breads is served family-style in the elegant dining room. Ada and Donald Roberts have been operating successfully as an inn since 1985."

Christina Tree & William Davis
"The feeling inside this striking, vintage-1845 Greek Revival house is bright, crisp and friendly. Ada and Don Roberts have been welcoming guests for more than a decade and obviously enjoy what they do. Guests are invited to gather in the living room with its baby grand and around the dining room table for breakfast (an expanded continental, served between 8:30-10 am). The four rooms consist of two w/queen beds, and two w/queen and an extra bed."

Eleanor Berman
"Spiffily painted in light blue with formal white columns, this 1845 Greek Revival was restored in the mid-1980's by Ada & Don Roberts, who left past careers to work together as innkeepers. Their inn manages to be formal without feeling stiff or stuffy. The inn is located in Salem's Historic District, just half a block from the green and within walking distance of many sights. Reserve early if you want to come to Salem."
