If you are tired of paying $300+ a night at the big hotel Chains in Boston, this is the place for you. Beautiful spacious elegant rooms some with private baths for $100 less then downtown. 10 min from downtown via car or Orange lLine. And within walking distance are terrific restaurants antique shops and boutiques of the Jaimaca Plain area.... More

I spent two nights at the Taylor House B&B and had the best sleep of my life! This charming quiet oasis was a perfect place to stay while on business in Boston. My room (Haffenreffer Room) was lovely - plenty of space and beautifully decorated. The bathroom amenities were great and the bed was delightful. I was most impressed with... More

Although we gave an arrival time, there was no one here to greet us. Instead, we found an envelope with our name on it outside the house with a map to our room. Once we got upstairs, we realized they gave us the wrong key. I called and they sent a housekeeper to give the correct key. (I must say,... More

The Taylor House is unique. It has been beautifully restored with great attention to detail. It is full of original art. We have stayed there twice...the rooms are large and interesting and comfortable. Each one is different from the others. We found the hosts to be very friendly. The breakfasts are delicious. We will try to always stay there when... More

A friend and I recently stayed in a suite at the Taylor House for several days and were delighted with the accommodations, wonderful breakfasts, and friendliness of the hosts. The house has been beautifully restored and the bedrooms are delightful.

The rooms are clean, airy and light. The bathrooms are up to date, modern and with quality fixtures. Dave and Daryl are wonderful hosts and the place is full of life. They each gave me great tips on having an insider's visit to Boston. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who wants more than the usual.

This was such a strange weekend. When we got there which was during the recommended check in period, no one answered the front door. There was a sign which said if no one answered, we were to go to the side entrance. We did and no answer. My husband walked around to the back, called out and someone eventually materialized....

Very nice room, clean and well decorated in the Taylor House. Very good breakfasts. Was disappointed that a party was held both nights in the downstairs area. Party noise was over by 9:30/10 but it did keep us in our room when we got back from dinner. Would stay here but would make certain that no entertainment was booked for... More

Owner Dave Elliott was very friendly and very accommodating of our very late arrival. Room was very large and comfortable. Beautifully restored antique bathroom with claw foot tub. The B&B was within 10 minutes of every thing we needed, restaurants, hardware store, grocery store, drug store, etc. Loved the breakfast, too. We will definitely stay here again.

Charming and well-located bed and breakfast in the heart of Jamaica Plain. The house is big and beautiful and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and afford privacy. Location is just steps away from restaurants and shops and a short walk to the pond. Breakfast had several options each day, though be advised to get there early-- though it says that... More
