My husband and I were in Boston for a few days in June 2012, and stayed in this room for a night and in the other for another night. Both were terrific in their own way with a whole different atmosphere in each. When you walk in you realize that you have not just one room but a full suite, with a large bedroom, well decorated, and a large living room with sky lights and/ or a veranda, in addition to a kitchen area with all the equipment needed to make the best of your stay. Breakfast is not served to you as in some other bnb's but is put into your fridge for your convenience, and in our case, we ended up using this at night, and eating a large breakfast at a nearby cafe. It is apparent from the get go, that this facility is very different, and we loved the fact that the house was so old, and full of history. If you are the kind of person who is looking for very modern type of hostelry this is not for you, but if you are like us, who love the idea of old architecture as well as history - well this is a gem - in a city that is a gem of history. All of the modern conveniences are imbedded in this house, and we loved the idea that we could walk to Bunker Hill, and then to the USS Constitution and then on to the rest of the Freedom Trail doing things in reverse. Maybe because we are seniors in our 70's we have a stronger appreciation of older facilities, and love the fact that it is so obvious that Elizabeth Gittings and her partner care so much for their property and garden. We highly recommend it to anyone who can look and find the beauty within. We did all the arrangements in advance and Elizabeth went out of her way to be accomadating, and we were able to benefit from the fact that this facility is part of the network of bnb's which allowed us to utilize a discount, always a plus for people on a fixed budget. We also were able to say which kinds of food we preferred to have available to us, and this was evident when we were given some specialty items, which was over and above what we had expected.
