My stay at the Charles Bass House was delightful. John is a gracious and attentive host, and truly makes you feel as though you're a guest in his home. Staying there was like a mini-spa vacation...the hot tub was great after driving, with a glass of wine to enjoy as well, and made for a relaxing evening. John's restaurant suggestion... More

I have stayed at the Charles Bass House several times. I recently returned to it and am happy to report that it has continued to remain one of my favorite places. The house is a meticulously maintained historic Victorian home in the historic area along Main Street in South Boston (SoBo) - which is itself a beautiful small city. The... More

I agree with the other reviewers, this is a very nice place to stay. We stayed in the suite so my friend and I could have separate beds (the extra bed was a sleep sofa). The rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. The house is about 100 years old, and I think it is lovely. There are a couple of... More

I enjoyed two trips to the Charles Bass house. It's a beautiful 19 century home surrounded by well manicured lawn's and stately Oaks. Our host, John, bent over backwards to make everything perfect for us. I'm allergic to wheat, and he provided home-baked gluten-free muffins! On the first occasion we stayed downstairs in the suite, with our own bath. On... More

Thanks to John for making our quick stay in South Boston such a treat. A comfortable bed, clean bathroom and quiet location made for a good sleep. John accommodated our early morning breakfast with healthy muffins, a fruit cup, juice and coffee. Thanks again for making our trip enjoyable.

Stayed in South Boston while doing some genealogy research in nearby Halifax. Lucky that I happened on to this very nice B&B in the old residential area of South Boston. Clean, quiet and authentically decorated in an early 20th century manner. Host was attentive but not intrusive. Breakfast was very good. You will have a peaceful, relaxing stay here. Two... More

Very good location for our recent quick trip to see a performance at the Prizery in South Boston. The owner was very helpful.

We were looking for a weekend runaway with total relaxation, without a long commute. The Charles Bass House fit the bill in every category. John was the perfect host, with tips of restaurants, activities and must sees in the area. The downstairs suite was awesome, the breakfast table spread with fresh fruit, morning paper, and hot served meals were delightful.... More

I stayed here with my sister and brother-in-law in late April in the lower level, two room suite. One room was a formal bedroom equipped with furniture, including a desk and chair. The other was sort of a "living" room equipped with a sleeper sofa, TV, and table. I slept on the sleeper sofa, which was pretty comfortable and had... More

I've never stayed at a B&B before. I always thought they'd be too personal intrusive, and we'd be forced to socialize with other guests when we really want to stay there to have time for ourselves. My husband, brother and I had some last minute travel due to a death in the family. We drove from Illinois to South Boston... More
