My fiancé and I chose the Carruth House as an alternative to expensive hotels in Boston proper. This choice worked well for us because the House is a 5 minute walk from a T-station, and we were able explore all of Boston, and then come home to a restful and quiet room. Heidi, the owner, is straightforward and super sweet.... More

We have just returned from staying at the Carruth House for a few days and enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean and large.The house is large, and as the web page says it is a work in progress which adds to the charm and history of the home. Breakfast was very good with a lot of variety. Heidi was... More

We just spent 4 days in the Ashmont Suite, and it was very neat and cozy, we slept well, the breakfast was good and Heidi is so sweet and attentive to her guests. It's also very close to the highway and the T so you can move around Boston pretty easily. The neighbourhood is safe and quiet.

If you want to hear people in the room next to you and doors opening and shutting at all hours of the night and the maid coming in at 8 o'clock in the morning, then you don't want to stay here. This is like staying at your grandmother's house. Comfortable, quiet, and clean. You wake up to the smell of... More

It was a great experience. Heidi was a lovely hostess, also very helpful in terms of tourist recommendations (she lend us lots of books about Boston). The location is good also, because is really close (2 minutes walking) from a subway station (called T in Boston) so it was really easy for us to get every where we wanted to... More

We enjoyed our stay at Carruth House: the breakfast was fantastic (baked goods from a local Irish bakery, fresh seasonal fruit, juices, yogurt, excellent coffee) and ready when we were; we were able to dine on the deck in back of the house; the suite was roomy and quiet for sleeping and the bathroom was immaculate. We plan to return... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Carruth house. The first thing to remember about the house is (as the owner told us) it's work in progress. This however doesn't take anything away from the building as it's very homely & inviting. The Owner Heidi is very welcoming and friendly. She was more than happy to answer any questions regarding...

My husband and I stayed here for a few days back in October. Heidi is a great hostess, very friendly and helpful! The walk to the metro is only a few blocks away, and the breakfast was amazing!! One morning she had gone to the bakery and snatched up the last Boston cream pie they had. It was the most... More

I had researched before arriving so I knew it was not in Boston city center, however the short walk to and from the T was no hassle and never a long wait for a train. The twin room was really nice with very comfortable beds. Didn't need to share bathroom because I was alone on the top floor. Great coffee... More

We recently visited Carruth House at the start of our two-week tour of New England. It is set in a quiet residential area but within a five minute walk of the T (tube) station. We stayed in the Ashmont Suite which was on the ground floor and had the advantage of a separate sitting room and a very high four... More
