About this listing
Located right at the end of the famous Freedom Trail, this fabulous one bedroom garden apartment with pull-out queen sofabed is just steps from the Bunker Hill Monument. Excellent and convenient location to explore Boston. Very private, quiet, and clean. With private entry, small yard - great for the summer months! - and laundry located in the unit. NEW! Just added a cable TV (July 2013)
Charlestown is a well-established, historic, and beautiful gas-light district with Victorian red-brick rowhouses and parks. Walking distance to a number of local restaurants, but also to the North End and the Navy Yard - a decommissioned navy yard now home to an active district filled with the USS Constitution ( i.e. Old Ironsides), several museums, residences, parks, restaurants, and million dollar views of downtown Boston! A ferry ($3) runs directly from the Navy Yard to the Aquarium and other sights downtown including Quincy Market, the Greenway Parks, TD Banknorth Garden, and museums nearby in Fort Point (ICA and Children's museum).
A range of public transit options are available: ferry, bus, subway, and bike share. Or you can simply walk most places! Better yet, parking in Charlestown on the weekend does not require a permit. During the week, several parking garages are located a 5-10 minute walk away (charging anywhere from $12-$21 depending on the duration).
This place is ideal for business travelers looking for a convenient place to stay while working downtown or in Kendall Square, couples, or families with younger children who are looking for laundry and a small outdoor space.
Absolutely no smoking or pets. Please note that the sleeping accommodations include one real bed and one pullout sofabed.
Kitchen basics (salt, sugar, olive oil, etc.) will be provided, but guests are expected to do their own grocery shopping. Recycling and disposal of waste at the end of the stay is also asked.
At the end of the visit, we kindly ask that you strip the bed and place the sheets in the hamper next to the washer and dryer. Thank you!
