We found this perfect little holiday retreat exactly as it was advertised. We rested, dined and entertained. The kitchen was easy, the furniture comfortable, and the decor was charming. Our host was accommodating and kind. We had no trouble checking in and out. We would choose to stay here over a hotel anytime. The location was convenient to the trains...

I would really have liked a chance to try this place out. The availability showed open on the website and I had 3 emails from "Terry" indicating a guest room was available. I tried to call the Inn's number, which is a cell phone I believe, several times within a couple of hours to submit a credit card to hold...

Travelling as two couples we stayed in a ground floor apartment with two bedrooms. The apartment was comfortable with good facilities but was also full of character in its furnishing and decor so that we were happy to spend time there as well as go out. Roxbury Crossing subway station is less than 5 minutes walk away and provided us...

First of all, the pre-arrival booking experience was flawless and very easy. Terry, as mentioned elsewhere was very accommodating, and also very charming and knowledgable. The apartment is just beautiful, with every amenity you could wish. Lovely art adorns the walls. Very chic and very comfortable. Location is away from bustle but 10 minutes from heart of Back Bay. Priced...

Had a room on the 2nd floor for 3 nights. We loved this place, it's a lovely old Boston style house and it still has its old charm, whilst still being clean and comfortable.

My wife and I recently stayed at the FHI from Wednesday to Saturday.

Our host, Terry, was kind enough to accommodate our extremely early arrival. Easy to find and very close to public transport in a quiet neighborhood. Upon arrival we found the cute 2 bedroom apartment to be neat, tidy and comfortable. A home away from home really. Plenty of helpful visitor information was available. Great place and very reasonable pricing. Thanks...
