My daughter and I stayed at the Chesley Road Bed and Breakfast for two nights, April 1-2, 2015. The owner of the B and B was a wonderful hostess! Ellen and her assistant, Carlos, made us feel at home and were quite welcoming. The room was nice and cozy. The bathroom was shared with another mother/ daughter family who was... More

Visiting Boston College with daughter and found this recommended on the BC site. They were correct in that the Chesley Road B&B was easy to get to, warm and charming. The rooms are cozy and clean and they provide everything you might need. The T stop is a short block away which makes getting around a breeze. We did not... More

We needed a place to stay on short notice and we were able to get a beautiful room at a very reasonable rate. Wonderful location as well! Within walking distance of a down town Newton, we will be back.

Chesley Road is my home away from home. I have been staying at the Chesley Road B&B for more then 1 year on a monthly basis, they always try to put me in the same room, so I feel like I am coming home. Decor is eclectic and very nicely done. Ellen and her husband cannot be more welcoming. It... More

Stayed with Ellern and Craig for 3 days when I first came to Boston as a exchange student. I had a lovely, clean and cozy room, and a delicious and healthy breakfast every day. The B&B is close to Newton center and the T in a safe and quet residential area. Ellen helped me out with all the information I... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend as a getaway weekend, and we absolutely LOVED the house! The Sunny Front room was extremely comfortable with great bedding, fluffy towels, bathrobes and toilet amenities provided for us. The breakfast was a variety of healthy choices and it suited us very well. We also loved their adorable cats, and loved spending... More

My husband and I enjoy staying at the Chesley Road B&B when we visit Boston. This was our third stay! Why do we like it so much? The house is Victorian, lovingly and beautifully restored over many years by a family that welcomes visitors with real warmth. Rooms are comfortable, bedding cozy, with self serve breakfast in a lovely formal... More

This B&B is only (literally) 1.5 blocks away from the T station, which you can take to downtown. This was extremely convenient, and the hostess let us keep our car in the driveway for the morning while we took care of our business downtown. There is also a DELICIOUS falafel shop (Jake's Falafel) a block away right by the T... More

I spent a week staying at this B&B while undertaking research at Boston College. I feel very lucky to have found such a charming and restful place to stay. The grand old Victorian house has been lovingly restored and my room (the sunny front room) was warm, airy, and blessed with a wonderfully comfortable bed. In terms of location, I... More

Traveling to Boston for the first time, we had a perfect stay just outside the city in the calm setting in Newton. Being conveniently placed close to the T, public transportation is easy to use (once you figured out the "Charlie Card") and cheap. The house is very nice and our room had a good size and lovely balcony overlooking... More
