I lived in Massachusetts for 20 years, so when my husband decided HE had found a place for us to stay for our 7 day trip in Boston I was a little hesitant.
But was absolutely,delighted once we arrived.
It's difficult to do it justice in a review,so you just have to trust the reviews and try it yourself. Aside from a little glitch in getting there from the airport, which should only be a few minutes,( if you stop and ask for directions) from the moment we arrived and were greeted by the "Inn keeper" we knew it was going to be a great stay. The location itself is worth the money. If you are into history, staying at the Old Navy Yard ,there is so much to see and do within walking distance. Then if you want to go to downtown Boston you are a ten minute walk to the pier and a couple dollars ferry ride that takes 10 min.-and VOILA you are right Quincy Market/Legal Seafood?The Aquarium and lots of shops and whatever else.
Just sitting outside your room and watching the sunset or sunrise is breathtaking. You see the Boston skyline...you can fish-which my husband did. The breakfast is great. And most importantly the owners are extreemly pleasant but non-intrusive. We wished we had booked the entire 7 night there but thoroughly enjoyed our five nite stay; and will definitely be back..sooner than later, I hope!
