Stay here. Shun high rises and chain hotels and stay in a historic brownstone in Boston. Easy to walk to Red Sox games and steps away from the T Orange Line. You'll love walking down shop and restaurant lined streets to all the wonders Boston has to offer. Get James to give you the whirlwind tour before you leave so... More

Parlor Room 1 was beautiful and quite spacious. Nice linens and comfortable bed. Nothing better than waking up in Boston with the sunshine coming in! The neighborhood is adorable and very walkable, with restaurants and subway stop nearby. James provided helpful tips for sightseeing, walking and biking around the city.

We walked to them but there is a subway stn really nearby. The innkeeper, James, was so friendly and helpful and have us some really useful... More

Well refurbished and planned rooms, like living in a luxury Boston one roomed apartment. A 7-10 minute walk at most to Back Bay station (via the SW corridor) or round the corner to Mass Ave T stop. Linen and towels all good quality - even your own simple breakfast things with a good coffee maker in the shared Kitchenette. A... More

This townhouse is situated just a short walk from the Commons, Newbury, Boylston, etc. The room is tastefully furnished and the owner, very helpful. We decided to rent the parking space behind the house and we left the car there for our entire visit. Breakfast is simple but adequate and self serve in the kitchen corridor between two rooms: bagels,... More

I was visiting my daughter from Australia in Connecticut and we decided to celebrate her Birthday by spending two nights at The Gilded Lily in a Garden Room (Top Floor) what a great idea that was. The Gilded Lily was beautiful from the comfortable bed to luxurious bathroom to shared kitchen with gourmet breakfast supplies. Walking distance 10-15 minutes to... More

We really enjoyed our five night stay at the Gilded Lily, which is located on a beautiful, quiet street. The house is charming, the rooms are tastefully decorated and immaculate. There is a shared kitchenette between the two 2nd story rooms which is stocked with a Keurig (and multiple beverage selections) and a refrigerator with snacks/breakfast items (marked for each...

We had such a great time at the Gilded Lily. The location is perfect (central to everything) and is on a quiet, beautiful tree lined street. The room itself was very clean and immaculate. I would highly recommend this place and stay here again!

Stayed for 3 nights at the start of a touring holiday in New England and couldn't have made a better choice. We booked parlour room 2 which was on the second floor so not suitable with those who have difficulty climbing stairs. The room was very tastefully decorated with comfortable bed, spotlessly clean and well maintained. The en-suite bathroom offers... More
