My wife and I traveled extensively for 30 years, and the 1863 House was the best place we have stayed. We were in Boston for a sightseeing and house hunting trip for five days. We wanted to be in a B&B between South End and Back Bay so as to learn more about the neighborhood and still have easy access to the trendy restaurants and popular sights nearby. We had a great experience because of the excellent location of the 1863 House, and because of Jane and Ben’s generosity and patience in directing us to all the new or important places to visit. Jane and Ben are both wonderful hosts. We look forward to visiting Boston again soon.
