I recently stayed at 1863 bed and breakfast. The location is perfect and an easy subway ride from the airport. Even by car it only cost me 20 dollars from the property to the airport in the daytime. The owners are wonderful and very kind. They make you feel at home. They are fun and great to speak with. The... More

We booked the 1863 House based on the reviews on TA and the competitive rate (compared to other options in Boston). You do not deal with the owner directly - bookings/payment is taken by a third party site, payment is taken in advance of your arrival. We arrived in early October for 5 nights. We received clear, helpful instructions regarding... More

On the spur of the moment - when Boston beat Detroit to get into the 2013 World Series, my husband and I decided to go to the first two games of the World Series which were in Boston. Lodging was impossible to find. All the area hotels were booked. So, I started working my way down through Bed and Breakfasts.... More

This was my first time ever staying at a Bed and Breakfast visiting a new city. I was very nervous about what to expect. From the moment I walked in, I felt so comfortable here. Ben and Jane took time to show me the map of Boston, how to get around, and where I could find some entertainment in the... More

This turned out to be the perfect place to stay in Boston: The location is excellent, right next to the South End part of Tremont St with its nice restaurants and within easy reach of both the city center and the MFA - by foot! Moreover, Jane and Ben are the nicest hosts ever and really made us make the... More

My wife and I traveled extensively for 30 years, and the 1863 House was the best place we have stayed. We were in Boston for a sightseeing and house hunting trip for five days. We wanted to be in a B&B between South End and Back Bay so as to learn more about the neighborhood and still have easy access... More

Based on Tripadvisor recommendations of 1863 House, and price, our family of 4 decided to book at this B&B and were not disappointed. The B&B is a 4-story house in a great part of town - about a 10 minute walk to the subway and walking distance to a lot of restaurants and shops. Upon arrival, Ben and Jane made... More
