4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

A 5 minute walk to the "T" (subway) station and grocery store (uphill to the house!), about 15-20 minutes to downtown (service is every 10 minutes or so). We had the private queen with bath and it was huge, quiet, clean and comfortable. Meg was very helpful with what to see and where to eat. It's located on a quiet street in a beautiful neighbourhood, with lots of local shopping, including a Trader Joe's.

I spent five nights in June at Meg's house. My room had a nice private bathroom, a comfortable bed; there were some art pieces on the walls worth another look, I also liked the tree branches peeping into the room through the window. A quiet, safe neighborhood with some old trees and old houses, just minutes away to Beacon street that has lots of decent places to eat. My schedule did not allow me to enjoy any of the breakfasts that were offered. I had a chance, though, to chat a little with Meg, a very refined and lively person.
For sure a place to visit again!

Visited our daughter and stayed at our first ever bed & breakfast. So glad we chose Meg and her lovely home. The queen bed with bath was very comfortable and quiet. Morning conversation with Meg was delightful, just like we had known each other for years. Coffee and light breakfast was delicious. She was very helpful in planning the sightseeing events of the day. We felt very welcome and will return.

Room Tip: Ask for the queen with the private bath.

We were visiting children in Brookline for a long weekend and needed a place to stay. Hilltop B&B was well situated - not even a five minute walk down the hill to Beacon Street and the T (Green Lines C and D). We stayed in the queen room with the private bath. The room is large and the bed comfortable. The shower was wonderful - a large walk-in shower. Meg is a fascinating host, well travelled and well read. We enjoyed chatting with her at breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

My room (queen bed and private bath) was clean and comfortable with a great shower. The street is quiet and the views from the dining room looked right into beautiful trees displaying Autumn color. The continental breakfast was delicious every day with cinnamon toast a highlight. The house is very close to the green line which was convenient for getting around the city. Restaurants in the area are varied and affordable. My favorite was The Abbey which had bar seating at the kitchen. They served delicious shredded Brussels sprouts and truffle oil French fries. I will definitely stay there again.

Meg's home is lovely and she is a wonderful hostess. I did not rent a room with a private bath (first time for that) so I wasn't sure what to expect. There was a long term renter there as well and after my third day she asked that I remove my things (clinique make up bag and towels-on towel rack) from the bathroom. She was very nice about it but I found it odd...otherwise all was great. Great coffee and I am from Seattle!
