I spent a month in Jamaica Plain, staying in the one br apartment that is part of Taylor House. The hosts, Dave and Dwight, were the best imaginable. I arrived the day of the blizzard, and left the day after the last nor'easter. I was able to easily walk into JP, for shopping and dining. There is a full breakfast... More

What a wonderful, friendly place. Right down to Jamie, the sweet potato eating golden retriever. We had a great stay and breakfast was amazing! This beautiful old house has been tastefully and lovingly restored to it's full glory and it was a real treat to stay here. Thanks Daryl and Dave! We'll be back :)

Absolutely loved staying at the Taylor House. Fully restored to it's original beauty with all the modern upgrades. No doubt every detail was attended to in the design of this place. The art through out is stunning and engaging. The breakfast was exceptional (right out of the oven egg and vegetable casserole, crumb cake, fresh seasonal fruits and high quality... More

I spent one night here when I was in the area for a family celebration. The proprietors were very nice, very gracious and my bed was very comfortable. This is an old house and the rooms don't appear to be updated. Most of the rooms downstairs did not have furnishings in them and I was wondering why, but didn't ask.... More

We have been staying at Taylor House for many years and it's always very pleasant. We brought our daughters one year and stayed in the top floor suite in their adjacent house. It was perfect. Usually we stay in the main house. Jamaica Pond is at the end of their beautiful street and is good for walking or running. It's... More

Ive been coming to the Taylor House for. 9 years. It's my preferred place to lodge when I'm in Boston. From Dave's hospitality to Daryl's great cooking, the sweetest dogs in Massachusetts, the short walk to Jamaica Pond, the even shorter walk to Boston's bountiful good eateries .... The local eclectic shops... All within Jamaica Plains friendly community of Bostonians.... More

The main house is very nice, but make sure you request a room in it when you book, because otherwise you may end up in a separate building in the back in a room with low ceilings, rather dumpy furniture, and a tiny bathroom in a semi-public space outside the room. When you reserve, the owner doesn't tell you if... More

A lovely B&B, most courteous and helpful hosts, excellent breakfast, ideally situated, easy to find, in a lively neighborhood (nice restaurants and shops). Highly recommended. We really enjoyed our stay.

The Taylor house is a massive old Victorian, renovated in a lovely (if somewhat florid) style. It is situated in Jamaica Plain, which is a great neighborhood, full of nice restaurants and bars, and almost adjacent to the Jamaica Pond, which is a lovely part of the Emerald Necklace of parks that surrounds Boston. It is close to the 39... More

Perched between Centre Street (the hub of Jamaica Plain) & the Olmstead park & pond, the Taylor House was a perfect location for our visit to friends. Our room was spacious & clean, though the shower was relatively small. Owners were present at breakfast but not obsequious, as some B&B owners can be. They were also gracious when we had... More
