Welcome to the Salem Cross Inn, a 1700’s era farmhouse built by the White family. This historic home is nestled on 600 acres of working New England farmland and was restored in the 1950’s by the Salem family who opened it as a restaurant in 1961. At Salem Cross Inn we provide guests with a colonial experience through our dining room, Hexmark Tavern, various function rooms for weddings, family gatherings, parties up to 225 people, and through our special dining events. These events include our Fireplace Feasts, Drover’s Roasts, and Christmas Memories.
