... they are paying tribute to the persecuted "witches" from 1692 but in actuality none of them were even witches! And furthermore, Wiccans don't even worship the devil anyways!
At the end of the tour, as we stood listening to the lady talk about modern witches, a girl in her early twenties started to stagger around and then fell down. It was likely the heat in the room but I was SO tempted to shout out "Witch!" ...
... I even got to try a bottle of Butter Beer!
We decided to pass on the over-priced witch museums (which got terrible reviews on tripadvisor.com) and go to the Peabody Essex Museum on Chip's advice. This ended up being a fabulous addition to our itinerary for a couple of reasons - because it was Friday, it was FREE AND they had a Faberge special exhibit that was ...
... that housed the church. Services took place in a really old church building complete with stained glass windows, paintings of the stations of the cross and this huge domed ceiling with a painting of the last supper. I took some pictures but there is no way they can do justice. It was a great reminder of the fact that God made things beautiful even when he could have just made them practical. The detail in every painting and in the sculpted trim around all of the pillars ...
Afterwards we went to visit 'The House with the Seven Gables'. You may have heard of the book based on the house written by Nathaniel Hawthorne (he also wrote The Scarlett Letter). This was really cool. It was owned by Nathaniel's second cousin and is a Colonial Mansion from the 1600's, complete with secret staircase.
Also on the property was Nathaniel's home where he ...
... did buy one, and it did taste very similar, so it was pretty good.
On the way to the maritime site, we passed the House of Seven Gables, though we didn't go in as it was like $12. The House is a colonial mansion and inspired the famous novel and subsequent films, so I think it's quite a hotspot for tourists...we had a wander round it and there were older American people swarming around it. We also passed a shop called 'Ye Olde Pepper Companie' ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Northey Street House Bed and Breakfast Salem
My mother and I spent a "getaway" weekend in Salem, Massachussets. We were looking for a central location to stay in Salem, without having to spend a fortune. Boy, did we hit the jackpot!
Great place - excellent amenities
We stayed at the Northey House in Salem just for one night, but we so enjoyed it that we're planning on staying there when we go back for a long weekend over July 4th. The ambience is great - our room was stunning, clean, and very cozy - and the available amenities, like free wireless internet access and snacks available all the time, made it that much nicer to stay there.
Flora is a lovely lady, and Charlie, the Northey's mascot, is a loveable little guy!!
The Northey is an excellent choice for staying in Salem. We had a very well appointed, large room, nice and airy and with an immaculate ensuite bathroom. Bed was comfortable, atmosphere relaxing, and both Flora and the other guests that we met friendly and welcoming (we sat out on the balcony and drank wine while chatting - all very low-key and relaxed). Breakfast was all home-cooked - the muffins were especially good, and there's lots of food and coffee on offer all the time. DVD players in the rooms too - so a good choice for a home-from-home as well as as a base for more go-getting stuff.
We have recently returned from a 4 night stay at Northey Street House B&B & had a wonderful time. Our room was large and comfortable and the wireless internet availability was a nice bonus. We were made to feel quite welcome in Flora's house and the resident Beagle, Charlie treated us like family!
Worth a Return Visit
My three sisters and I stayed at the Northey Street House in May and found this B&B more than suitable for our Salem trip. The proprietor, Flora and her friendly beagle Charlie, were excellent hosts. This little inn has off street parking, and the main attractions are only about a 10-15 minute walk away. A very big plus is that included in the price of the room is admission to the Peabody Essex Museum, a must-see in Salem.
Flora maintains an impeccably clean establishment, providing all the necessities for her guests. Her homemade breakfast treats are delicious and the kitchen is well-stocked with snacks, drinks and anything else for a midnight snack.
I would definitely return to this unassuming gem in Salem.
Jewel in Salem!
I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 week(!) stay at the Northey Street House B & B in Salem, MA. My hostess, Flora, was a joy and her breakfasts were more than enough to give me all the energy I needed to be a successful tourist!
Northey Street House was clean and cheerful and the rooms were tastefully decorated (the beds were SOOOOOOOOOO comfortable!). It was slightly off the beaten path, but within walking distance of everything Salem has to offer.
I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone travelling to Salem and I intend to stay there again.
April 2006 was our first venture to the east coast from California. Salem was chosen as our home base to explore Boston and Cape Ann areas. Salem, the coastal towns of Gloucester,Rockport are all interesting with much history, much to see, with great places to eat & friendly people.
Love the Northey St house B & B
We had never stayed at a B & B before, and we had a wonderful time. Our room and bathroom were huge and very comfortable. We were made to feel right at home. We didn't need a car, we could walk everywhere. My daughter and I had a wonderful time, and will be back again soon.
We stayed for two weeks in Flora's B&B and we had a wonderful time there.
It was very familiar, friendly and comfortable. The breakfast is the hammer!
The B&B is very well located: Everything is easy to reach: the museums, the city, the train station. We did a lot of trips. Especially the turn to NYC was great.
We felt in love with New England, Boston, Salem and Flora's B&B!
We travelled a lot, saw much, but this is one of our favourite places we 've ever been.
Thanks for all, Flora.

Northey B and B is a gem!
I googled Salem and discovered this gem of a B and B. It turned out to be a real find. The room I had was on the top floor. It was exquisite, spacious, beautifully designed, well appointed, and impeccably clean. Flora, the owner, is a lovely hostess. Her breakfast I truly appreciated because it was simple and delicious and not overwhelmingly carb laden. Flora was also exceptionally helpful with maps, guidebooks and suggestions. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone who wants a small, quiet and intimate place to stay.
