Early in 2012 my wife and I decided it was time to see the east coast, and in particular New England. Boston was selected as our starting point and hearing horror stories from other travelers about traffic, cars, and expensive parking we decided to look for a B&B near Logan airport and then use public transportation. When we were finished with Boston, we’d then pick up our rental car from Logan and move on.
Our search turned up the East Boston B&B with its 3 reviews. After phoning the owners and some e-mails to work out final details we decided to ignore the two bad reviews and give Don and Joyce a try. We were not disappointed. Their B&B is very close to Logan, and the public transport was within a 10-minute walk. Don is very knowledgeable about transportation in general, and provided some good advice about which lines to ride and the stops closest to the attractions we wanted to see. The B&B itself is very clean, quite and comfortable. Our bed was fabulous; the bathroom very spacious with two sinks and the plumbing fixtures were all of current design and top class.
Breakfasts were cooked to order and very good. Joyce’s omelets kept us going the entire day. You don’t leave her table hungry. Joyce also went out of her way to locate a bottle of limited production bourbon I was looking for thereby saving me a lot of time and effort.
Overall I’d rate our experience being closer to the first review and have concluded the bad reviews have come from a couple of cranks who had an axe to grind and took it out on Don and Joyce.
