“Lovely home and lovely hosts”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

We stayed at Ellen and Craig's B & B in July when we came to Boston looking to relocate. Their home is a beautiful restored Victorian house. The room is well appointed and very comfortable. Ellen thoughtfully provided gluten free breakfast options once she learned I was wheat intolerant. They made us feel very welcome. Now we are moving to Boston and their lovely home was the first place we thought to stay while waiting to move into our new apartment. We definitely recommend their B & B and also want to mention that it is very conveniently located and easily accessible to Boston attractions.

The historical 1849 home is perfectly located and Ellen and Craig are engaging and friendly hosts. Our room was clean and cozy and we were allowed to come and go as though it were our own home.

My wife just started Law School at Boston College, walking distance from Newton Centre. We stayed at the Chesley Road B&B twice, once in early August to find a place to live, then again for a few days at the end of the month while we waited for September 1st, our move-in date. In total, we spent about 8 or 9 days there.

Since we were so new to the area, Ellen and Craig were especially helpful- they recommended real estate agents, vets for our cats, got us maps and brochures, even recommending neighborhoods for us to search for apartments. Craig even offered to drive us places when he had time. Both Craig and Ellen mostly left us to our own devices during the day.

The rooms and beds were comfortable, the bathrooms clean and spacious. (Our house is about 100 years old, and the bathroom is tiny.) The downstairs rooms were great places to sit and talk, read the newspaper or watch TV, or check the (free wireless) internet for more places to live.

The breakfast was okay. The food and coffee was all fresh and of decent quality. Though the selection wasn't too extensive, there was a wide enough variety that both my wife and I were satisfied.

For all this, we felt the price (just over $100) was very fair and reasonable, especially compared to the hotel rates in the area. We now have a 1-bedroom apartment in a nearby area. Chesley Road B&B is convenient, reasonably-priced, and has an excellent home-like feel. If we have friends or family coming to visit we will definitely recommend they stay here.

Hi, could someone who has stayed here please provide me with a phone number or way to contact the B&B? I'd like to check it out for a stay this month, but can't find any contact info on the internet. Thanks!

This place is very good! My husband and I enjoyed staying there very much! Ellen and her husband Craig were very kind. Craig helped my husband with our boxes and suitcases. Ellen did everything to make us feel very comfortable. Our room was very cozy and clean. Overall, it's very good place to stay!

This was actually our second stay at this bed & breakfast.. We stayed here in Sept 2008 when we brought our daughter back to school at Boston University. We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked it again for three nights for this trip back for our daughter's graduation. We have stayed in both of the available rooms and found them both to be spacious and very comfortable. The house is located on a nice quiet little street only 2 block from the "T" making it very convenient for traveling into downtown Boston.

Ellen and Craig are very friendly and accommodating, and I would gladly reccommend this B&B to anyone traveling to the Boston area.

My girlfriend and I stayed a weekend in this lovely B&B and it was just great. Ellen, the owner of the B&B is a very nice person who helped us planning our day trip to Boston by giving us maps, brochures and personal tips. The room is big, nice and very clean - the same as the big bathroom next to our room.

Best part of the B&B is the location. You can spend the night outside the city without the noises and with the subway it is short ride into the center of Boston.

We would absolutely recommend the B&B to everyone, who likes a friendly atmosphere and a nice place to stay for a city trip!
