My friend and I stayed here recently and had a very comfortable night. The rooms have great character, well maintained and clean. The staff are really friendly and helpful. And a nice breakfast in the morning - quite sufficient for us. The position is right by the T that runs into the city in 5 mins so you can't fault...

Some of the earlier reviews about Beacon Hill Bed and Breakfast are much too negative in my opinion. Two of us stayed with Madame Butterworth for 2 weeks last May ( 2012 ), and had absolutely wonderful time. There seem to be confusion in the USA about what is an INN and what is a " bed and breakfast". This...

Susan Butterwork’s Beacon Hill B&B. 14’ ceilings, antiques, unbelievable location near Charles Street and Boston Common. Perfect balance of help & privacy. Truly a home, elegant and warm. Lots of light, quiet. Huge room, like a studio apartment almost. The bells from the church across the street toll. Charming!

This is the second time we stayed here. The first was the summer, everything was so nice we decided to stay again for parents weekend in October. At 2:45 the room wasn't ready, so we left. When we got back at 10, the sheets were messy and there are no drinking glasses in the room. The next day the bed...

We stayed for four nights, and wished it were longer. Susan Butterworth's elegant home is ideally situated in a beautiful brick terrace on a lantern-lit street close to Boyleston, Newbury and the delightful Charles Street, and has high ceilings, quality antique furniture, a veritable library of books. This lady takes hospitality seriously. Articulate and informative, she is welcoming without being...

The area of Boston this Bed and Breakfast is in is certainly the best in which to stay, lovely brownstone buildings and charming shops and cafes. Susan Butterworth greeted us with her friendly dogs Chloe and Trushka (we are cat people ultimately, however nobody could dislike these dogs, smell-free, endearing and very well behaved) and put our cases in a...

I absolutely loved my stay! Mrs. Butterworth was very accomodating and she was very helpful in showing us how to get where, how to do what, "must see" spots, etc...It was so great to have someone so knowledgable about the city to give us some great insight on what to do when and where to go. Her breakfasts were awesome...waffles,...

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...

My husband and I found the Beacon Hill B + B to be a comfortable, convenient place to stay. Our plane was late and we arrived around midnight. We called ahead and Susan Butterworth met us at the door, dogs in tow, and quickly showed us the ropes. (I felt safe knowing that the front doors would always be locked.)...

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
