we needed to a place to stay close to fenway for a concert. This bead and breakfast was a great find. Wonderful staff, quiet but centrally located, with large rooms. I would highly recommend it if you need a place near fenway or close to the city

This is the second time we've stayed at the Gryphon House in the North Tower room. It is perfect for a family with extra space and a small kitchen. The water pressure is heavenly! The location is ideal for us being walking distance from Boston University and Fenway Park. We like that is has off-street parking. The staff is wonderful,... More

Thank you so much for coming back to stay with us, and for your great review! We've been replacing all the mattresses this year, and now, I guess, North Tower will be next! :) Sorry we didn't catch it in time, but next visit, it should be all set! Thanks again! More

Built in 1890 (the original wallpaper still hangs), it's a charming alternative to an impersonal hotel. The room was large and comfortable and the breakfast, served in a Victorian parlor, was very nice. Great place to stay if you're heading to Fenway -- or anywhere else in Boston since it's right near a subway.

Stayed for three nights while sightseeing in Boston. This is a very comfortable lodging in the Back Bay area. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped with two easy chairs and a sofa. Just the thing to come back to after a day trekking around town. The inn is close to a wide variety of restaurants and is two blocks from... More

Excellent location. Walked to Boston University. Walked to Fenway Park. Restaurants close. Very comfortable rooms and nice continental breakfast. Don't be afraid to take fourth floor- no road noise up there. Just a lot of stairs which we knew to expect.

This location was PERFECT to get home easily from Fenway. It is on a quiet street (for Boston) and an easy walk to Fenway. The room was great, big with a small kitchen area. The bathroom was huge and the shower pressure was FANTASTIC! We actually really liked that breakfast was continental. It didn't seem "lame" and it was nice... More

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighborhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
