Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

PICTURESQUE BEACON HILL, BOSTON'S HISTORIC CENTER! This 1,100 square foot, 3 bedroom condominium in the heart of Beacon Hill is perfectly situated for those wishing to enjoy the best of Boston. Occupying the 3rd and 4th floors of a small 19th century building, the recently renovated condo offers charm and comfort. High ceilings, wood floors throughout and lots of light from the many windows are the setting for an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture, plenty of books and art.

Please note there is no elevator, so it is two flights of stairs up from street level, and another flight of stairs in the condo from the main floor (living room, dining room, kitchen) to the bedrooms. There is an additional steep flight of stairs up to the roofdeck.

YOU WON'T NEED A CAR! Step out of the condo and you will find a day spa and yoga studio at street level. Walk to everything! One short block to Charles Street, with its cafes, boutiques, antique galleries and restaurants. Two blocks to the Public Garden, or to the Boston Common. Enjoy the Swan Boats in the summer, or walk to skating on Frog Pond in winter. Stroll down to the Esplanade and go for a run along the Charles River for a great view of the Boston skyline.

Boston's excellent subway system is just minutes away. Only 3 stops on the Red Line and you are in Harvard Square, or catch the Green Line to the MFA. In the summer, you will enjoy the comfort of central air conditioning and the views from the private roof deck. The small, but nicely fitted kitchen has everything for those who like to cook, including 2 ovens. In the marble-tiled bathroom, we replaced the bathtub with a large glass-enclosed shower with a bench and a rain-shower head. The 2 larger bedrooms have new queen mattresses, and the smaller bedroom has one twin bed.

Why Owner chose Massachusetts

Boston is one of the world's loveliest cities. Scenic and historic, it is small enough to be accessible and pedestrian-friendly, while also offering world-class art, restaurants and entertainment.

Beautiful property in great location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this apartment! We are a family of five from a small Texas town and this was the perfect city experience. We did the Freedom Trail, shopped at nearby DeLuca's, had breakfast at Tatte and saw the Red Sox beat the Yankees in Fenway! The apartment is decorated beautifully yet very comfortable. Thank you for a memorable stay!

Brilliant Location and style

  • 5 of 5

Whilst location is often the top priority this place had both fabulous location AND terrific style. It is obviously a much loved and cared for property, with beautiful furnishings that were in keeping with the historic area. It was perfect for our needs, quaint, full of charm and well furnished, very comfortable beds, plenty of nearby shops to stock up on groceries etc, quiet street (little traffic noise) but so close to all the action in Boston. The roof top terrace was delightful. Caroline was very easy to communicate with and she gave helpful and clear directions and instructions for arrival/departure. Would definitely recommend this place and I hope to return again

Lovely place close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, nice amenities and very helpful landlord! You have to be able to navigate stairs but it is a spacious and well taken care of apartment that had more than enough room for 5 adults.

Historic Boston

  • 5 of 5

A location that puts you within easy reach of the Common, and the history of Boston. Within walking distance of the various amenities from dining, shopping and entertainment.

The Condo has a very homely atmosphere and a roof terrace that gives you the bonus of being able to sit outside.

As previously noted in other reviews access from street level could be tricky for people with mobility issues.

Overall a very pleasant stay which I would highly recommend.

Wonderful

This is a beautiful home in the heart of Boston. We loved the rooftop deck and ate some of our meals up there. The kitchen and bathroom are very modern and stylish. There is a cozy nook for watching tv. We absolutely loved it and had a wonderful time in Boston.
