About the property

1 bedroom apartment in Boston's best neighborhood

Steps from the Boston Common and Public Garden, Freedom Trail, the Charles River, and the gold-domed State House, this charming 1 bedroom condo comfortably sleeps 4. Very close by are Faneuil Hall, the Esplanade, Mass General Hospital, the North End, Boston Garden, Newbury Street and Back Bay. And virtually all of Boston is easily accessible via the two nearby subway lines, including Harvard and Harvard Square, MIT, Fenway Park, Boston University, the South End and the Seaport District.

Our condo is a very private garden level unit with its own entrance. It has a fully equipped kitchen including a microwave, dishwasher and disposal; a living room with a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable; high-speed wifi. The bathroom has a tub and shower, a combined washer/dryer, and a heated toilet seat with built-in bidet :-). The bedroom has a queen-sized platform bed with plenty of drawer space. The living room has a comfortable couch, which converts to a comfortable queen size sofa bed, a love seat, a dining area, and a working fireplace. We also supply luxury linens and towels.

Beacon Hill, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston, is known for its colonial brick row houses with beautiful doors, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, and gas lamps. Beacon Hill is quiet and safe neighborhood, and one of the most desirable in Boston. There are many restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs in the area, and interesting shops on nearby Charles Street.

It is fifteen minutes by taxi to the airport for about $25 or twenty-five minutes by public transportation for $2.50. South Station (which has the subway, Amtrak, and a bus terminal) is four stops away on the nearby Red Line subway and North Station is a fifteen minute walk.

You do not need a car to tour all of Boston. But if you do have a car, note that parking is limited. There is garage parking in the area ranging in price from $15 to $35 per day.

No smoking in or near the condo!

About Carol Tepper

My husband and I live in Lexington, which is a fairly near suburb to Boston so we know the area well and can help if you have questions about area attractions. We love spending time in Boston as well as traveling around the US and abroad.

Carol Tepper purchased this condo in 2014

Why Carol Tepper chose Massachusetts

We have found that we like to spend time in the city and decided that owning a condo to use ourselves sometimes would be a better alternative to expensive, impersonal hotel rooms. This also allows us to share our love of the area with others that would like to come into Boston.

What makes this condo unique

We love the Beacon Hill area because of the uniqueness of the neighborhood, but also our building was built in 1890 and it has a charm that you would never find in a modern building. Our condo has a private entrance and is on a relatively quiet street for being in the heart of the city.

From the City of Boston website: One of Boston's oldest communities, Beacon Hill gets its name from a beacon that once stood atop its hill to warn locals about foreign invasion. Approximately one square mile in size, Beacon Hill is bound by Beacon Street, Bowdoin Street, Cambridge Street and Storrow Drive. Its architecture and lay- out is reflective of old colonial Boston, consisting of brick row houses with beautiful doors, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, narrow streets, and gas lamps. Beacon Hill is also home to the Massachusetts State House and America's first African Meeting House. Charles Street, the neighborhood's main thoroughfare, is lined with antique shops and restaurants. Beacon Hill has been home to many notable Americans, including Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Homes, Daniel Webster, Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, and Senator John Kerry.

Charming apartment and location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in a great location with access to most attractions through walking and Uber/Lyft. Great use of space for our family of 4. We did not feel crowded and was much better than a hotel room of the same size. Well appointed... kitchen well stocked. Location difficult if any physical disability due to hills and access down stairs into apartment. Recommend not having a car as there is not good parking but Uber and Lyft served us exceptionally well. Great location for shops, restaurants and Boston Commons/Freedom Trail. Would definitely book this location again

Great place to stay in Boston!

Great location, walking the hills is good for you and a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. Close to all the action but great little hide away when you are ready for some peace and quiet.

Fantastic Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Came into town for a long weekend with friends. Carol greeted us upon arrival and told us everything we would need to know about the house and local area. Just 2 blocks from Boston Common, this quaint house was perfectly located for anything we wanted to explore. Easy to access, well kept, and a cozy vibe. I would definitely come back.
