“Great Location”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

We took our kids (10 and 7) to Boston for the first time and were so pleased with the location! We were able to walk everywhere: Fenway, Freedom Trail etc. without difficulty, and the T was just a few blocks away when when needed to get out to Harvard, back to the Airport etc. Close to several great coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the kids loved the spiraling stairs!

I agree with the comments about the excellent location and the excellent rooms, neither can be faulted.

But a B & B provides breakfast-this gave a self serve breakfast with tea bags but no kettle to boil water.

And in every other B & B the owner has been there to greet you and to give you information about the town, some tourist sites and so on. I never met the owner or any one else connected with the establishment in three days in which I stayed.

We know that every establishment faces challenges to provide the best experience for its niche in the market. As a boutique three-room B+B we are unable to staff full-time and by local laws are unable to prepare meals. Because we know we're in the business of hospitality we have made significant improvements to our property, amenities, bathrooms, breakfast and presence while still staying true to our boutique atmosphere and constraints. We always welcome feedback and continue to be as accommodating as possible.

We were only in Boston for a couple of days and were fortunate to have found this fantastic B&B. The rooms were stylish and modern with much attention given to detail. The location is perfect as there are numerous restaurants in the area and a short walk from the center of the city. Should we be back in Boston, we will definitely book our stay here!

We were in town to visit family and see the sights and this was a perfect place to stay! It is in a fun neighborhood - great coffee shop/bakery down the street, and we found it easy to get around town. It is in an historic building that has been beautifully restored. Our rooms were neat and clean, very nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Our family occupied all the rooms on one floor, so sharing a bathroom was not an issue. They provide robes and carrying baskets for your toiletries and plenty of fluffy towels. There is a nice little breakfast nook and sitting room upstairs as well. Access was easy and efficient and the manager was so wonderful! He even went so far as to return our son's stuffed dog we mistakenly left behind! We would definitely stay here again when in the area!

Room Tip: 3rd floor, three rooms, one on the front of the building is the nicest, but the one on the back is n...

We first came with our family of 6 and occupied all the rooms on one floor. We were impressed by the stylish interiors of the rooms and the wonderful beds. The atmosphere in this Victorian house is super and the neighbourhood too. The selfhelp breakfast is a bit in contrast but everything needed and more is available.
After 3 weeks my wife and I were very happy that we could book a room again before we flew back to the Netherlands.

We strive to make improvements and feedback is very helpful. Unfortunately, as a boutique B+B we are unable to staff full-time to serve breakfast and local laws prohibit us from preparing meals. To make our breakfast experience better, we have moved it to our elegant dining room and increased our offerings which includes: fruits, yogurts, cereal, oatmeal, bagels, muffins, pastries, juices, coffee and tea. We welcome continued feedback while also meeting our legal regulations.

Love the area - South End, lots of cute cafes and shops, quiet street. The rooms and bathroom were spotless and had full amenities (including bathrobes which we both loved). We were able to walk in at our leisure since they left the keys for us out front. No check-in or check-out made our stay seamless. The little kitchen upstairs had everything you needed for breakfast so you could eat at your leisure. The toiletries provided were very good quality although my ONLY complaint is that we would have liked a few more (only one set per couple makes it hard for both of us to wash our hair) and I would have killed for a few Q-tips. The staff/owner was really nice and we were never disturbed by anyone else who may have been in the building. Kind of felt like you were staying at a friend's house who happened to be out. Free street parking on the weekend was scarce but possible to find nearby. We will definitely consider staying at a BnB again as a cozy alternative to the usual chain of hotels.

After our first year of operation, we are pleased to hear the great feedback on improving at our boutique B+B; since this review we have expanded our complimentary toiletry collection to include: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, bar soap, toothbrush/toothpaste/floss/mouth wash, razor/shaving cream, deodorant, shower cap, vanity set (q-tips/cotton ball/emory board), make-up remover wipes, sanitary bags, shoe polisher and sewing kit... we hope we haven't forgotten anything just in case you have! In addition, our collection includes eco-friendly products and packaging.
