hope y’all had a great weekend! brian and i traveled 30 minutes north of the city and spent a night at the hotel marblehead. it was a very chill and quiet weekend for us. this 14-room boutique hotel is very charming and cozy with a modern touch. it was the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
we then drove 10 minutes away to salem, ma. brian joked that everything in salem’s haunted, which is probably true. we had the pleasure of stuffing our faces at the ledger restaurant and bar. situated in the old salem savings bank, the space is now filled with natural lighting, high ceilings, yet still keeping its charm and details from when it used to be a bank.
their general manager, kelsey, told me that there’s been talk that their basement has some friendly ghosts lurking around. i'm such a baby that if i ever find out that the place i work at is haunted, i'd quit on the first day.
after dinner, we roamed around downtown salem and walked into a few nerdy stores for brian’s enjoyment. we then head back to the hotel and just chilled and watched ratatouille and legally blonde. the next morning, the hotel was serving breakfast but brian and i were still too full from dinner. checking out was a breeze and the front desk lady was very kind. like i mentioned, the north shore is the perfect place to getaway from the city. it’s very quite and relaxing and come summer time, there’ll be more things to do!
