Agree with all the reviews. A superb place to stay in Boston. Expensive (by Australian standards), but so is just about everything in Boston. Breakfast is very basic, but the accommodation is just beautiful and the location is great. Would definitely stay here again.

What a beautifully restored inn, with gracious and charming owners. The location is superb, the hosts and staff very warm and helpful, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The continental breakfast in the beautiful dining space made it even better!

The location is great and the place has lots of potential to be a nice b&b, cozy decor, good customer service. We stayed in the Garden room which would be more accurately described as the Parking room. Windows face the parking lot, no natural light,...More

The Sanctuary room has one double bed in a sort of alcove, slightly apart, and one single bed. So if two people can sleep in the double together, yes!

Hi, I'm sorry if you didn't receive a response right away. We are located less than two blocks from the Green line of the Boston subway, known as the T, at the Kenmore stop. A car is totally unnecessary!
