I just returned from a 2 night stay at this architecturally stunning Victorian row house in Boston's South End. Ben and Jane make you feel extremely welcome in their home from the time you arrive. I was traveling alone, and was in the city to visit my daughter. The towels were plush, the bed comfortable, and the shared bathroom worked well. A room air conditioner kept the space cool during one warm night. I loved the breakfast selections, and looked forward to Ben's fresh squeezed orange juice. Ben and Jane are great ambassadors for their city and gave great suggestions for activities (solstice concerts) and restaurants. The area is an arts mecca, with the Boston Center for the Arts around the corner. The Back Bay T stop is a short walk, and Copley Square is a 10-15 minute walk.I cannot wait to plan my next visit.
