“Boston's best B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

This past week was at least my third visit, this time with a friend, each occupying single rooms. As others have noted, this place is spotless and the hosts are not only welcoming but ready with information on the best T transfer spots. The location is ideal with plenty of amenities nearby, including a good walk to the MFA or Gardner.

Room Tip: Great light in rooms in front and for Red Sox fans the rear rooms have a view of the iconic Citgo si...

We stayed here for a week in October and enjoyed a very comfortable stay. We had a large twin bedded room at the front of the building. We had everything we needed - fresh towels and beds made everyday, kettle and fridge, tv, hairdryer etc, all in a very clean room . We were welcomed warmly by the owners on arrival and enjoyed getting to know them during the week. The breakfast was nice, with plenty of choices of fresh fruit and pastries, as well as cereals, juices, bread and spreads each day. The location was very convenient for the subway station and local restaurants. We would highly recommend Abigayles's B&B.

Our son is at MIT and his fraternity is located in a double brownstone 3 doors down from this B&B! We had a wonderful stay, enjoyed the location and flexibility of being close with our sons' busy schedule. The room was very clean and spacious, next time we will book a room in the front of the house due to the post office noise in the parking area behind. A white noise machine was provided so we still slept great :) The hosts are very nice and welcoming. It felt like home so much that I actually started putting my dishes in the kitchen off the dining room without even thinking one morning! We will stay here every time we visit our son from now on, so happy we found you.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the building are quieter.

I just spent three nights at Abigayle's, and it couldn't have been better. Clean and spacious room (and I mean clean -- far better than most hotels), very comfortable bed, modern bathroom (a pleasant surprise in a neighborhood of old brownstones) terrific location (two blocks from Kenmore Square and the subway), the hosts are helpful but nonintrusive. The breakfast is simple but thoroughly adequate, with different fresh fruit every morning. I would stay there again, definitely.

After staying at Abigayle's in 2011, we knew where we would stay if we came back to Boston. This year we stayed for eight nights, and, just as before, it was great in every way. Large, beautiful and spotlessly clean room; great bed; tasty continental breakfasts; free wifi. The hosts are friendly and our whole stay was very relaxing and enjoyable. Can't recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: Room 4A is at the front of the building; was quiet and peaceful.

My friend and I had a lovely stay at Abigayle's Bed and Breakfast. The hosts were attentive and always ready for our inquiries regarding local restaurants etc. One way our stay could have been improved is if the owners presented a more local flavor at the continental breakfast. Instead of Skippy's peanut butter, an organic local brand would have been appreciated. The same with the jams and cold cuts. The New England states are known for their homemade/local jams, cold cuts and fabulous cheeses. Realizing a full breakfast is not permitted on the premises, special attention to a quality continental breakfast with food from local deli's and specially shops would have been appropriate and appreciated.

It's a great location for BU parents if you have students that dorms on Bay State street or Com Ave(in Warren Towers) and the proximity to the green line and other location made it ideal. Top floor rooms wasn't too challenging, very friendly and allowed up to keep stuff on the ground floor that we didn't need to use during our visit(kids luggage). Would recommend it and stay there again if coming to spend a lot of time at BU. I hope I'm not letting the cat out of the bag for this great location...I hope to stay there again next time I visit. Breakfast for decent and they will accommodate earlier times if needed. No signage, so don't be alarmed when your taxi drops you off in front of a residence, it's a B&B, not Sheraton or Marriott. Thanks for a great stay.
