Join us for a special dining event as the Innkeepers at the Salem Cross Inn announce their series of 1700’s style feasts, prepared on the open hearth of a great fieldstone fireplace. Relax by the fire or lend a hand as dinner is prepared for you in colonial style. Stir the chowder as it bubbles in our cast iron cauldron. See your prime rib, roasted ‘to a turn,’ as the only known authentic Roasting Jack still operating in America rotates slowly over a crackling fire of wild cherry logs. Beware the brimming bowl of freshly whipped cream – the perfect compliment to New England’s best apple pie.
While your dinner is cooking to perfection, enjoy a horse drawn wagon or sleigh ride through the valley on the Inn’s pristine 600 acres. Shake off the chill with warm mulled wine or cider upon your return. Browse our extensive collection of colonial and federal period American antiques. The Fireplace Feast makes a thoughtful and unique gift for special friends or deserving associates.
The Fireplace Feast is just one of our many dining events that provides an authentic colonial experience. At Salem Cross Inn, we capture the history and culture of 1700’s America. Salem Cross Inn’s dining events, excellent cuisine, and atmosphere have been featured on Food Network’s “The Best Of,” WCVB TV5 Boston’s “Chronicle” and chosen as the “Hidden Jewel” by Boston’s Phantom Gourmet and WGBY.

Want to ring in the new year with a special Fireplace Feast?
Join us on December 31st as we welcome in 2015!
Enjoy hors d’oeuvres by the fire. Take a horse drawn sleigh/wagon ride through the back fields then chase the chill away and relax with some hot, mulled cider or wine. Help make apple pie using an antique apple peeler and corer, or make seafood chowder in an antique iron cauldron right in the fieldstone fireplace. Then sit back for the main feast of seafood chowder, your choice of 1700 Fireplace Prime Rib or Fresh Broiled Atlantic Salmon, bowls of fresh butternut squash, spinach pie and oven roasted potatoes, and make sure to save some room for the scrumptious deep dish apple pie with fresh whipped cream. We’ll toast to the New Year and then go downstairs so you can dance right through the midnight hour! Wear a party hat and use those noisemakers! It’s a great way to ring in the New Year!
