What a beautiful old house - such a shame that the required maintenance and upkeep is severely lacking, if at all done in the first place. We had a 2 night stay with a large group of family/ friends and we were very disappointed once we walked inside. The house itself is falling apart which is such a shame because...

Had a 2 night stay in this B&B but wasn't happy with it. The house itself is falling apart which is such a shame because you can tell it was a beautiful place at one time. It seems there has been very little work put into preserving the beauty and structure of the inn. The back kitchen area that guests...

If you need a place to stay in Manchester or Beverly Farms and are looking for Old World Waspy, you are in luck! The location is wonderful, the inn is clean and the staff is very friendly. We enjoyed our two nights with afternoons on the porch.

We stayed at the Old Corner Inn because it was conveniently located to a social gathering with friends in the area. There is not much else going for it. An old structure, it wears its history awkwardly. The ceilings everywhere are badly cracked; wallpaper is falling off the walls, and linoleum creeps off the bathroom floors. It badly needs refurbishing!...

It's a great spot, and the only game in town. And they know it. It's a charming inn, built in the late 1800's, with lots of charm and spacious rooms. It was then probably updated in the late 70's or early 80's. And then they just decided to ride that wave. I mean, this place is impeccably clean, and tidy....

While there were some things better than others, this place needs some work. Our room was good and fairly clean, there needed to be some deep cleaning. We had a good value for the money with a small discount for bringing some more guests with us. The downside was that the living room space was just for show. We attempted...

Alright, no flat screen TVs in the rooms, but there is computer access. The large friendly open porch welcomes you as you step into the Victorian-ish lobby of the old Corner Inn. Your room is a comfy four poster or large King size bed looking out on the large, sleepy trees through lace curtains of your warmly wallpapered room with...

Stopped here by chance and was welcomed by Arthur , had a lovely spacious room, with en suite and roll top bath. Very old property, but had a wonderful nights sleep. Michael the owner was very friendly and we had a super breakfast in the delightful home from home dining area. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We're pretty much locals but I like the Rte. 127 area up and down the coast from Salem to Rockport. Have passed by this place many times on the way to Tuck's Point so we decided to stay just for the heck of it even tho it's only 15 miles from where I live. Manchester is a really pretty place....

Local little inn in Manchester by the Sea, run by Michael. Both he and the inn were charming and accommodating. Very comfy bed and quaint rooms. Continental breakfast included, clean towels daily, free wifi access. We will definitely stop in and stay again.

“Please don't take Rm#2 with the working fireplace, it's my Favorite! Rm1# has a clawfoot tub and Rm#7 is up in the lofty part and is so cozy. Late at night if you listen (it's not at all loud) one can faintly hear the fog horn off inthe distance. Oh, to be by the sea!”
