The SpaceThe bedrooms are comfortable and moderate. The highlight is the location - central for parents dropping off college students, leaf peepers heading north, those wanting to explore Boston without high hotel costs. Paddle the canoe or read in the screened in room outside. Canobie Lake Amusement Park, Robert Frost's Homestead, America's Stonehenge, Sales Tax Free shopping (no sales tax in New Hampshire), Hot Air Balloon rides, local fairs all nearby. Guest AccessThere is one bathroom in the home with shower/bath. Interaction with GuestsI teach in Boston two days a week and watch my granddaughter half day on three days. On the days I teach I leave very early and return late. On the days I watch my granddaughter I am home most if not all of the day. I would love to welcome international guests; I work in Italy part of the year. The NeighborhoodFor the shopper, Salem, New Hampshire is a paradise since New Hampshire has no sales tax. A major Mall (Mall at Rockingham) along with many smaller clustered malls and shopping areas provide any item you can imagine. Chain restaurants and local small business restaurants are available for a variety of budgets.
Salem is not a good choice for those looking for nighttime hotspots! Getting AroundYou will need a car since public transportation is not available. There is bus service to Boston (South Station and Logan Airport) three miles from home. Trains are available in neighboring town, but a car is needed to get to station. Parking is in driveway in front of house. Other Things to NoteTowels, sheets, soap and shampoo will be provided.
