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

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at Carruth House in November 2011. The house is a charming Queen Anne style home, and a 10 minute walk from the red line Ashmont T subway station. For those with lots of luggage, taxis are often waiting at the station. The house is located in a neighborhood that was established in the... More
