We stayed here on an overnight trip while visiting Boston. We loved our room and the innkeeper was very helpful with giving us information on how to get around the city. The room was quiet and clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was good. The subway is easily accessible from the inn. We would definitely stay here again.

From the time we arrived until the time we left, we experienced a warm and helpful staff. Dia, Jamie, and Skyler were the inn keepers during our stay. Relaxing seating on sun porch and outdoor porch. Freshly made breakfast and homemade baked goods. Located near public transportation and restaurants. If you appreciate old homes, this is a well kept gem.
