“Great restoration”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This old mansion has been nicely restored appropriately for its period. Lots of privacy, great breakfasts included, free parking. It is an easy walk to Jamaica Plain commercial area, or Jamaica Pond. There are lots of good restaurants and pubs in Jamaica Plain.

I spent a month in Jamaica Plain, staying in the one br apartment that is part of Taylor House. The hosts, Dave and Dwight, were the best imaginable. I arrived the day of the blizzard, and left the day after the last nor'easter. I was able to easily walk into JP, for shopping and dining. There is a full breakfast every morning in the B&B. The apartment is clean, and the kitchen has oven, microwave, frig, and coffee pot. Stocked with all utensils. The apt has free WiFi, a nice TV with all channels, dining table, comfortable chairs, separate bedroom and bath, all contained in the apt. When the power went out during the blizzard, the generator in the main house gave all the neighbors a comfortable place to meet and have coffee. The B&B opens its doors to the neighborhood in such times.

What a wonderful, friendly place. Right down to Jamie, the sweet potato eating golden retriever. We had a great stay and breakfast was amazing!
This beautiful old house has been tastefully and lovingly restored to it's full glory and it was a real treat to stay here. Thanks Daryl and Dave! We'll be back :)

Absolutely loved staying at the Taylor House. Fully restored to it's original beauty with all the modern upgrades. No doubt every detail was attended to in the design of this place. The art through out is stunning and engaging. The breakfast was exceptional (right out of the oven egg and vegetable casserole, crumb cake, fresh seasonal fruits and high quality coffee). The best part was that I slept like a baby on a very comfortable bed. Tucked away on a quiet side street and near to all, I almost forgot I was in a city. I highly recommend the Taylor House and look forward to staying there again during future visits to Boston.

I spent one night here when I was in the area for a family celebration. The proprietors were very nice, very gracious and my bed was very comfortable. This is an old house and the rooms don't appear to be updated. Most of the rooms downstairs did not have furnishings in them and I was wondering why, but didn't ask. I went to a private home for breakfast, so didn't partake of the included breakfast, but everything looked very comfortable and very warm in the breakfast room. There was a beautiful golden retriever (I believe) in residence and she was wonderful. I loved the place for that alone! I believe I will be returning to this area in the future and will stay there again.

We have been staying at Taylor House for many years and it's always very pleasant. We brought our daughters one year and stayed in the top floor suite in their adjacent house. It was perfect. Usually we stay in the main house. Jamaica Pond is at the end of their beautiful street and is good for walking or running. It's the perfect location for us with good transit to Boston. Jamaica Plain has interesting local shops and restaurants, and is close to Arnold Arboretum. We look forward to the now familiar warmth and hospitality that is Taylor House. Dave and Daryl are the always affable, and capable, owners. Their approach makes for a quiet and convivial atmosphere that we like. The excellent breakfast is prepared by Daryl, a talented chef. We take pleasure seeing the contemporary art and ceramics displayed throughout the house. On our most recent trip, our arrival was on a cool autumn evening. A choral group was rehearsing in the large Drawing Room. We thought we had arrived in Heaven. It was a truly magical welcome to a very special place.

Ive been coming to the Taylor House for. 9 years. It's my preferred place to lodge when I'm in Boston.

From Dave's hospitality to Daryl's great cooking, the sweetest dogs in Massachusetts, the short walk to Jamaica Pond, the even shorter walk to Boston's bountiful good eateries .... The local eclectic shops... All within Jamaica Plains friendly community of Bostonians.

Taylor House sits in the middle of it all.
It's a great place to stay. Simple amenities but more Boston than the hotel fare will ever offer. The rooms are unique and clean. The beds could be more comfortable but never miss breakfast. You'll enjoy the peace and quit and the beautiful back patio and the special BIG home called Taylor House.
