We arrived at this wonderful B&B in the late evening (11:30pm) and let ourselves in as per the instructions we received via email for late night arrival. If you’re a bit taller, make sure to duck down a bit when entering the door (I hit my head twice as apparently I’m a slow learner haha...I nicknamed it the Hobbit door). Upon opening the door, we immediately had a very positive first impression: music was playing softly in the background, warm welcoming lights, fresh flowers, and snacks and a beverage carafe left out on Upon opening up the door I immediately gave myself a mental pat on the back :-)
The house is huge and made up of many levels:
-Main level is the breakfast/eating area
-next level up is the sitting area with 2 different seating areas which included a library & a piano -then there is the “pear” level (a row of pears on a ledge) with rooms
-then the “apple” level (where our room #2 was located) with rooms
-another level above us with rooms
-and finally the roof terrace with hot tub and an amazing city view! We made use of this every night
(there is also another level below the “main level” which more bedrooms. The total number of bedrooms is 7.
This and that:
-Lots of stairs which showed me just how out of shape I’m in
-Good selection of continental breakfast that sets you off for the day with healthy choices
-Staff-extremely welcoming and helpful (whether you need help navigating the city, booking reservations.....we received nothing but excellent service).
-Walking distance to the T (train), shops, restaurants, wine bars, and sites.
-the T is easy to navigate with a colour coded system
-Taxi tips: flag down on street, don’t book ahead –call as needed as it only takes 5-10min for them to arrive (if you try and book ahead they are very unlikely to show up---advice from numerous locals)
-we didn't rent a car and got around easily on foot, taxi, and the T (when we went to the football game)
We highly recommend this Inn when staying in Boston, and if going back-would book again without any hesitation.
