“A wonderful B & B in Historic Lexington”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

After finding most B & B's full or pricey we lucked out with Morgan's Rest in historic Lexigton, 11 miles northwest of Boston. Easy parking. Only 3 guestrooms. We had the airy spacious pool room with it's 5 skylights. Sink covered with a colorful design motif of vines and flowers. Breakfast was awesome with fresh fruit salad and jam stuffed crepes and warm pumpkin bread. Bargain price.
In hallway are guest fridge and microwave and coffee.

Room Tip: Be aware there are lots of stairs outside and inside

Excellent value, safe, nice neighborhood, parking on the street in front. Very nice, helpful, owner who is completely respectful of privacy and space. The home has a solid, Victorian feel. Room was clean, quiet, charming, and so comfortable and private that returning in the evening was like coming home. Lovely, soft sheets, comfortable bed, WiFi. The owner is very considerate, I was the only guest for a couple of nights and therefore I was lucky to have breakfast made to order for me, my choice. Boston Globe and Wall St Journal in the lovely breakfast room, with tea available any time. Fridge, micro in hallway. Everyone free to come and go as we please.

Really enjoyed my stay, no question I would return and would recommend this for anyone looking for a low-key, comfortable b&b. Also terrific location very near Rt 2, Concord, Cambridge, or for wherever you might be heading with a car in the area.

The only thing to be aware of is there are several stairs to get up to the house; it is up on a small hill. This likely is only a problem if you have difficulty walking.

We had a most enjoyable evening and night and Morgan's Rest. The check in was simple and flawless. We loved the spaciousness of the room and the fantastic bathroom - with skylights!!! The location is convenient to Lexington and in fact the whole Boston area. WiFi internet service is easy and very fast. I especially liked the tasty, personally prepared breakfast and having skylights in the enormous bedroom. I wholeheartedly recommend this B&B without any hesitation.

Perfect location for touring Lexington/Concord and easy access to Boston. The house was really beautiful. Food was great, and hospitality was wonderful. We would definately stay again.

We had a wonderful stay at this bed and breakfast. We took a red eye from Seattle, arriving in Boston at 7 am. We went straight to the bed and breakfast hoping to drop off our luggage. When we arrived, we were informed that our room had not been used the night before so we were welcome to go straight up. We were also offered breakfast and had a delicious quiche and fruit. We then crashed for 2 1/2 hours - I didn't realize how tired we would be after the flight! We spent the rest of the afternoon and the next day sightseeing around Lexington and Concord. This location was very convenient to seeing the area and the neighborhood was very quiet. We had a wonderful night's rest. I would have been happy to stay another night. The owner was very friendly and helpful.

Morgan's Rest is truly a home away from home. There are precious few guest houses in New England that combine its easy laid-back charm, quality, and value. I am genuinely taken in as a member of the household each time I visit from England (sometimes alone, sometimes with family). The blurry line between using family/guest spaces such as the library and dining hall is perfectly negotiated, making guests feel simultaneously at home and yet not in the way of domestic life. The family is fun and charming and we're great friends now. My daughter prefers our stays at Morgan's Rest than anywhere else in the Boston area (apart from her grandmother's flat in Boston). If you've ever felt suffocated by a fussy guest house, or lonely in an indifferent one, then you will know just how rare this New England gem is. A+. Ted Dewan
