Although I've never before posted a second review on a place, A Village warrants it. I use it as my base of operations for the Boston Marathon, an annual ritual for me. The location allows me to make friends with Heartbreak hill, commute daily on the 'T' 2 blocks away, to downtown Boston, eat healthy food and remain emotionally positively... More

A Village B&B was my home away from home when I visited Boston for a residential seminar at my school. The rooms are warm, attractive and clean. The bathroom and common areas are immaculate. Breakfast was wonderful, always fresh, and tailored to my tastes. Claudia was a delightful and welcoming host, always happy to make good conversation or suggest ways... More

Claudia, the proprietor, was incredibly attentive and accommodating. Breakfasts were great and made to order at whatever hour I needed them. I loved Katie's room which was my... More

Our family of 4 stayed at A Village B&B for almost a week in February and couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The city was buried in snow but the location made it so easy to get around. It's literally steps to the T, to some nice restaurants, bakeries, and shops, and easy to get into the city or onto... More

My husband, college-age daughter and I stayed with Claudia for six days while moving our daughter into her first apartment in Boston.We knew we'd have to rent a car to pick up furniture, supplies, etc.and just couldn't face trying to find parking during move-in weekend in Boston, so the suburbs seemed like the best option. Newton is ideally located, a... More

We stayed in the first floor King room and it was wonderful. A nice large room with a lovely screened in porch off the bedroom. The continental style breakfast had a huge variety of items... More

My husband and I have stayed at A village B&B on three separate occasions now and we look forward to the next time :) The house is charming and conveniently located. The continental breakfast had a nice variety, including healthy items; there was even soy and almond milk to accommodate those on a dairy-free diet! The room we stayed in... More
