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

This elegant old mansion, and its neighbor 'The Gables' provide a comfortable place to stay, in a lovely residential neighborhood with lots of trees and flowers. I arrived quite late, and Dave made arrangements for me to get in on my own - it worked great. I was on the top of The Gables - I had the whole floor... More

My wife and I stayed at the Taylor House for 4 nights. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The owners were friendly and allowed us much privacy. We enjoyed the other guests during breakfast time. The food was gourmet and enjoyable. It is located in a safe neighborhood within walking distance of nice restaurants and wonderful parks. We would... More

I really wanted to like Taylor B&B, but so many things were lacking that we left early and went to another hotel for our last night in town. While the home could be lovely, it was been let go and the evidence of lack of care was abundant: The room had dust bunnies all the floor, and the curtains were... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in the middle of a crazy snowstorm, and it was quite lovely. It is in a GREAT location - minutes away from Jamaica Plain's pond and "downtown" area - with access to Boston via train or bus. The room was a little small, but we didn't mind - we were located right next to... More

We visited our daughter who is currently living in Boston. We stayed in Taylor House for a week. The house is beautiful, and so is the neighbourhood. The room we stayed in is very comfortable, good bed, great shower. We have enjoyed breakfast very much, because of the quality of the food and because of the relaxed atmosphere. We have... More

I love the location of this B&B as we have relatives in Jamaica Plain and there are very few nearby options. This inn is walking distance to the shops and restaurants and in a very nice neighborhood. The building itself is beautiful but the decorating is lackluster except for a few very nice pieces of art. The place was also... More

We're Boston Marathoners that come to Boston every year for the race. We were so turned off by the cost and availability of hotels downtown this particular year, we decided to expand our search. We were very fortunate. Trip Advisor guided us to Taylor House, and we were very pleased with our choice. Here are the pros. Dave is an... More

We were pretty surprised by the expense of hotels and B&Bs in Boston, so stayed a bit out of downtown at Taylor House in Jamaica Plain. It ended up being a great choice. The house is beautiful and rooms are well appointed, breakfast is great each morning. The JP neighborhood is a close walk with lots of great choices. Getting... More
