I just recently returned from my first trip to Boston. We booked this bed and breakfast after having issues trying to find an affordable hotel within the city limits. It is important to note that the Abigayle is also known as The Brownstone. The price for a large room with 2 twin beds and a private bathroom was $165 a night. The bathroom is new, clean and had plenty of hot water during our visit. The only downside is the stairs if you have mobility issues as the guest rooms are on the 3rd and 4th floors. The room had a fridge which is a bonus! The home is well maintained and the woodwork is amazing. Lihua and Vic are a very welcoming couple. They will assist you with restaurant recommendations, directions, and they even let us store our luggage after check out. The breakfast was continental, with a variety of cereals, fruit and bread/pastries. If you need a more substantial breakfast, you can head to Beacon St. although we never did.
It is about a 3min walk to the Kenmore (green line) station. It is on a quiet street behind Beacon street, close to the river. The surrounding area is a part of Boston University, but the street is mostly residential. If you are into baseball, Fenway park is about 7-10min walk. It is about a 10-15 min walk to the Boston Public Library and the transit system is easy to use ($18 for a one week pass).
I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Boston and I look forward to going back!
