Morgan's Rest Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Lexington B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 14, 2011

This place is not very convenient to the sights. Its in a residential neighborhood not too easy to find and a 5 minute drive into the town. We arrived early and thought we were in the wrong place because the husband who answered the door didn't seem to be expecting us. When we asked for directions into town he was fuzzy about it.

The accommodations were OK. The pool room is cavernous with a nice bathroom but the linens and blanket were thin and looked like they were old. The sheets and pillowcases were fresh but the actual pillows smelled old and musty and really need to be thrown away. The TV was old and small.

The breakfast was good, eggs, bacon and fresh bread, but we felt like we were not very welcome relatives staying in their house while they got ready for work. Basically, it seems like the B&B was a bit of a nuisance to them and certainly not their major focus.

We would not stay there again.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize that your recent stay did not meet expectations and certainly take your comments very seriously as we continually strive to improve. We have addressed all of your comments and made several upgrades since your stay, including new large flat screen televisions in each room for relaxing with cable TV or complimentary movies.
Your kind words regarding our homecooked breakfasts are much appreciated! Since we are 1.5 miles from downtown Lexington, it is likely that a vehicle is needed for most restaurants, although it is a quick 4- 5 minute ride. I am very happy to provide maps and directions, along with local advice regarding the Lexington-Concord area and Boston. My husband and I try to be very welcoming to all of our guests, and hope that you husband will reconsider us on your next trip East.

We stayed this past weekend and the service was excellent, the breakfast was delicious, and the home was lovely! I truly felt "at home." Couldn't ask for better!

Room Tip: The pool room was large and the bed was comfy!

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.
