The trek to the third floor with no help caused me to feel that my heart would explode from carrying in my stuff. I'm not young and I'm sure a young man could have been available when I said I'd check in. The jacuzzi tub seal was bad and I had to use a coffee cup to keep the water... More

I admit that the price seemed too good to be true; however, when looking for a place to stay for 5 nights, it seemed irresistible. The "lower level entrance" should have been my first clue that it's actually in the basement of the inn, but I didn't pick up on that. The inn's website explains that the Garden Suite "...offers...

This review is long overdue. We stayed at Stone Soup this past October for the second time. It's a relatively nice place though parts of it could use some dusting/cleaning, especially the outside area. The rooms are fairly nice though you may not get a comfortable bed (lofts). There are a few things, however, that were just not up to... More

We stayed for two nights while visiting family that live within the block. This was my first stay at a b&b. The place is loaded with charm, great decorating and ambience. Great location very convenient to Mass Ave. The bed was very comfortable. We stayed in the SW Loft, great space for two with its own shower/bathroom. If not for... More

My spouse and I have been staying at this B&B for a number of years. Our favorite room was booked so we stayed in the Garden Room. Like other reviewers have noted, the stairs to the room are challenging. Fortunately my spouse and I are relatively young. We were able to navigate them even without hand rails. If you have... More

They clearly put some love into remodeling this place. While a lot of the furniture and fixtures are more classic (read antiquely) the place still felt clean! Outdoor space was great for sipping some wine and the staff was very responsive. Make sure to use amenities at the affiliated Villa if you have the chance. Pay attention when booking- some... More

An old pocket of the city -- big trees, gorgeous houses -- right next to the thriving Arts District (full of galleries, restaurants, very happening scene) and not far from downtown. The Inn itself is architecturally impressive, and the mission-style furnishings are extraordinary. All the usual comforts, but a sense of style that is rare. Can't wait to return.

We stayed in the Garden Room, which is spacious, and has a full kitchen if you need it (full size fridge, stove, double sink). However, the steps down to it are hazardous (it's in the basement). The steps are very steep, shallow, and have high risers, and there is no hand rail. Very difficult to negotiate with luggage (or even... More

This was me and my boyfriend's first B&B experience and we couldn't be happier! Comfortable, clean & had character. It was extremely affordable and would recommend it to anyone! We only stayed one night passing through but it was in close distance to restaurants and Mass Ave.

Beautifully decorated with comfortable rooms. A pleasant host and delicious breakfast. Convenient location to downtown from this charming neighborhood. Be advised that nearby trains can be heard from rooms.
