This is an architectural gem! An elegant Victorian home in the heart of historic Beacon Hill. The grand staircase takes you up to 2 guest rooms on either end of the house, both with private bath ensuite. Soaring ceilings and intact crown molding, huge original doors -- if you are an old home lover, this is for you. This is more like staying with your Aunt in her grand old house, than staying at an Inn, so if you are fussy and expect luxurious linens, marble bathrroms, and flat screen tv's ( not that there is anything wrong with that) this is not the place for you. But if you want to feel like you are living in the heart of Beacon Hill, an easy walk to the T, the shops and restaurants of Charles Street, if you prefer to come home to lovely friendly dogs to greet you and welcome you, and if you like to get a know a city with the advice of someone who is a native, than this is the place. The only downside is that these grand old homes, while magnificent, are inefficient to heat and cool, so plan to pack accordingly depending on the season. I loved staying here.
