Mary Mitchell purchased this condo in 2012

This condo is in the center of it all when you want to really 'do' Boston. Across the street is the Fiedler foot bridge to the Esplanade. Three blocks away is the Newbury shopping area. Walk three blocks the other way and you are on Beacon Hill. The Freedom Trail is a couple of subway stops away. You can also walk to the theaters.

You don't want a car in Boston. You want to stay right in the middle of Back Bay. This place isn't only convenient, it is a beautiful example of Back Bay brownstone living. Take a look at the photos. It's gorgeous. The unit used to be a Gentleman's Parlor. Notice the ornate rosette on the ceiling and the lovely bay windows. What a great place to sit on a snowy day and read about American history.

WONDERFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful home for a week while looking at Boston colleges. This home is spotless, in a gorgeous neighborhood. We felt safe both in the neighborhood and in the condo as well. So much larger than a hotel room with all the amenities of home. Dealing with the home owner as well as the home manager was a pleasure. I hope to return to this home again and again. I highly recommend it!

GEM FOR TWO

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful, spacious and spotless studio apartment with tons of charm located on Beacon Street in Back Bay. The pictures showing this property are completely accurate, the owner is helpful and the property managers make 'moving in' an easy experience. From here, Beacon Hill and Charles Street is a 10-12 minute walk. Massachusetts General Hospital is 10 minutes further up Charles. The Charles River Esplanade is less than two blocks north. There are several underground ("T") stations within a 10-15 minute walk. Newbury Street is an easy walk as are the Commonwealth Avenue pedestrian promenade, the Public Gardens and Boston Common. We did not rent a car and did not miss it for a second. (A 7-day 'Charlie' card for the subway is a $18 for an adult, available at most stations.) We cooked our breakfasts in the apartment (there's a DeLucca deli on Charles Street that carries most of what you'll need). All in all, this is a perfect spot for two people.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week long stay in this condo. It is the perfect size for two people and conventionally located to markets, parks, and shopping!

Thanks for your help, Mary. We appreciated all the brochures and maps in the condo. It made our decisions on what to do each day so much easier!

EXCEPTIONAL

  • 5 of 5
Big beautiful apartment in an excellent location for exploring Boston. Only 5-10 minutes walk to boston common, park street, copley square and beacon hill. The apartment, though old in style, is expertly modernised from the fully equipped kitchen to the large widescreen tv with Netflix. The walk-in closet is very useful and even includes an iron and ironing board. The place is spotless and the bed is very comfortable. Mary is a pleasure to deal with and I have already recommended it to several people. It is far better than any of the tiny overpriced hotel rooms which Boston is famous for. We will definitely stay there again the next time we come to Boston.

ELEGANT AND EASY

  • 5 of 5
This was an ideal place for two of us to stay for five weeks while awaiting completion of our home renovation. Though only a studio, the unit never felt cramped, thanks to its spaciousness, graciousness, and high ceilings. The kitchen was well enough equipped for us to cook fairly often. The owner (through the building's property manager) was very responsive to our few requests. The location is ideal for easy walking to Beacon Hill, Back Bay, downtown, and the Charles River esplanade. Highly recommended!

Two blocks from the Boston Public Garden and Commons, quick walk to fashionable Newbury Streets and Boylston shopping, theater district, charming Charles Street on Beacon Hill and easy access to the subway to go anywhere in Boston. It's the most convenient place to stay in town.
