Stayed here for 3 nights. Very comfortable, clean, spacious & tastefully decorated apartment in a lovely red brick house. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to make a complete meal. We felt totally at home here from the get go. It is a five minute walk to the train station, Roxbury crossing and approximately a 20...

We were looking for a place to stay for our 4 days in Boston. We try to avoid hotels so we found this on VRBO. After booking we were provided with an access code in an email to get in and did not need to check in. It was everything we wanted for our four days complete with a full,...

We enjoyed our stay here at the Fort Hill Inn. It is reasonable priced, clean and well set up for a couple. Very cute! Everything you need is provided and photos of the apartment were very accurate. Our GPS took us off course but Terrence was great directing us back when we called him. We did have a little trouble...

Seriously...lots of hills and stairs in this one. This was not a secret; we knew what we were getting into upon booking. We travel quite a bit and have hauled ourselves and our stuff through lots of precarious and backbreaking situations in several countries. However, in hindsight, I'm feeling like most of the reviews I read were from people who...

What a great stay in Boston. The condo was great, very clean and unique. It had great charm and the space was great for 3 of us. It had a kitchen that had everything from pots and pans to a blender. Everything like home. Terry was an awesome host. It was a short drive to downtown. The pull out couch...

We stayed in the duplex apartment which had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large sitting come dining room. Beautifully fitted out old restored bostonian redbrick. Terry the owner was very helpful and accommodating. Only 5 minutes from the train station and then its 10 minutes into the heart of Boston with trains running every 5-7 mins. Remember to buy...

My husband and I stayed in at the Fort Hill Inn (first floor Apt 1 at 2 Centre Place) for a sight-seeing trip to one of my most favorite cities.

Thank You Wahlumgirl for the glowing review and your comments, very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. I am very sorry to hear you were disturbed about the noise from the child upstairs, it is rare we have issues with noise, but some parents do not properly correct their child's adverse behavior.

I stayed at the Fort Hill Inn (building two, apartment two) for four nights. Terry, the owner, was responsive and helpful in all interactions. The apartment was clean, updated and provided ample space for two people. Because the unit is located on a private street, it’s quiet, though our upstairs neighbors weren’t particularly considerate and our stay was noisy, especially...

Thank You soo much for your very nice review and comments! We love to hear from our guests so we can always improve.

Wonderful charm! A lot of work went into this apartment in a row house in Roxbury. So convenient to everything via the T. It didn't take us long to learn the system either.
