Reviewer Comments:

Family vacation to explore an historic city. We loved the neighborhood. Nice restaurants. Try Cafe Polonia great polish food. Short drive to downtown and North end. Easy parking on street. Walk to Dunken doughnuts. House is a city home. Noisy but nice. One bathroom is a little tight. Would stay again.

This 3 bedroom house is beautiful! It's in a great neighborhood with an amazing little gourmet bar/restaurant next door. Only about a 5 min. drive to downtown. We would definitely stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we enjoyed our time here. We felt safe and comfortable in our neighborhood and found people friendly, but a few blocks away was a bit more concerning. We loved that the bus stopped close to the house, the 17 takes you to Andrew transit center where you could go or get connections to almost anywhere you wanted or needed to go. One of my biggest complaints is the chairs in the kitchen are very uncomfortable. It was tough to sit and eat a meal in the kitchen. As far as activities, we went to a game at Fenway, Whale watching, the Freedom Trail, a visit to the USS Constitution, and a trip to Salem. We didn't have a car and depended on public transportation, all very easy and convenient to use. We bought the weekly Charlie Card so we didn't need money for each trip. We would stay again on any return trip to Boston.

We loved staying here. As advertised it is a short walk to the T. If you aren't up for the walk, #16 and 17 busses run from the T station (Andrew) to right across the street from the house. Easy to get most anywhere on the T. The house was very clean and seemed recently renovated. Kitchen basics were there, as far as dishes, pots, pans, etc, but don't expect spices or condiments! The kitchen table is small for 6 people, but we just got cozy. We had a great time and the house worked well for us!

We spent 2 weeks in the Dorset for vacation. The photos do not do this place justice; very clean and tidy, bedrooms are a great size and living space, bathroom and kitchen has everything you need. Excellent a/c also..lovely restaurant next door and 10mins from Andrew T station and a large grocery store/restaurants etc...felt very safe in the neighbourhood.definitely would recommend and use again if we return to Boston...

Map

Fenway Park

Just outside downtown Boston, this location is close to many of Boston's greatest attractions and areas of interest. Walkable to Columbus Park, Carson Beach and the Redline of the Subway, convenience is the key word here. Also, the major highway that runs North/South through Boston, is just 7 blocks away. Ample parking for visitors that have or want a car.

Other Activities: All Boston Historical attractions

Golf: Just a ten minute drive to the City Course that is located within the Olmstead designed Franklin Park. Also, other courses that are near the beach and in the Blue Hills.

Ski: Skiing as close as 10 minutes away in the Blue Hills (small), 45 minutes to Wachucetts, and endless amounts of ski resorts within 90 minutes.
