Positive Reviews

Characterful period property

Guests love the period nature of this property, finding the accommodation to be full of character and quirky touches. The stunning landscaped gardens add to the sense of yesteryear grandeur.

Interesting neighbourhood

The Jamaica Plain neighbourhood proves popular with guests, not least because of its gorgeous outdoor spaces, including the Arnold Arboretum and Jamaica Pond. Meanwhile, guests also appreciate the homegrown restaurants and the friendly community atmosphere in the area.

Quiet and comfortable rooms

Overall, guests are pretty pleased with the standard of the rooms here, often noting that the beds are especially comfortable. Feedback also indicates that the guest rooms at this Boston B&B are nice and quiet.

Negative Reviews

Perhaps a little far from downtown Boston

Although it’s only about a 30-minute journey into downtown Boston if using public transport in the area, this commute proves a little tiresome for guests, particularly those who are short on time to explore the area.

Service can prove disappointing

Feedback for this B&B suggests that the standard of service can be a little hit and miss. Guests find the staff is friendly enough but at times the owners can come across as standoffish and not really all that interested in guests. Private functions and events appear to take priority when they take place on site, judging from reviews.

Mixed feedback about breakfast

Comments from guests regarding breakfast are quite mixed. While some guests can’t rave enough about breakfast, others fail to be as impressed. The biggest issue for those that are disappointed seems to be that there is only one choice of main dish, with the remainder of the food seemingly made up of random bits and pieces.
