Savin Hill Neighborhood:
Two Miles from dowtown Boston on the Ashmont Red Line Savin Hill Subway (T) stop.
Savin Hill is a quiet residential neighborhood in Dorchester. There is a small retail district near the Subway T stop: Mckennas (breakfast + lunch) Scoops Ice Cream shop, Savin Hill Bar + Kitchen (drinks + dinner). You are in the City - yet the neighborhood has a charming small town feel to it.
There are two miniature poodles in residence at Chateau B.
I stayed for a weekend at Bruces and Barrys House. It was wonderful. Both of them are extremly helpful. They had a lot of suggestions for me to go and they invited me to join dinner with them. It was delicious. Bruce is a wonderful cook. On Saturday Bruce invited me to go with him and two other guests to the Christmastree Lightning. Although I was travelling alone I feel never lonly at these beautiful place. My room was really nice, I enjoyed the view over the see. I will come back. Warmly recommended!
This is a wonderful place to stay. Bruce and Barry are generous hosts and the accommodation is very comfortable indeed. The house is a short walk to the train which takes you downtown in a few minutes. Bruce let us park our car off the street which was kind of him. I would strongly recommend this B&B. If you're coming to Boston, this is the place to stay.
Nous avons passé 4 nuits chez Bruce et Gary. La maison est accueillante, très bien située, à quelques minutes de la ligne rouge du métro, et nos hôtes sont charmants et attentionnés. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour.
Had an incredible visit at Bruce's home. The photos don't give the house justice. This was one of the more unique places I have stayed but also one of the more memorable. Bruce is a fantastic host and felt more like an old friend then a stranger whose home I was staying in. Both Bruce and Barry were very helpful in giving directions (and even a ride) to the nearby T Station. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in Boston. Also felt very safe, as two females traveling alone it can be a bit intimidating staying in a new city but never once did either of us worry. Felt very safe and taken care of. Thanks Bruce and Barry!
The house is large, beautiful, with modern baths and quite close to the Red-line. Most people living in the house are professional/grad students temporarily doing the Boston education thing. They are up out and very early it seems. The house is surprisingly quiet for the amount of rooms/people and proximity to the freeway along the shore. Also, 2.5 baths in the house are completely adequate even though there are quite a few people using them; Bruce has given everyone a caddy to allow for flexibility - dorm style except with very well appointed quarters.
Bruce is friendly and kind and went out of his way to make sure I met/knew about everyone. Breakfast included a lot of options but was of the continental breakfast genre. I didn't spend much time there - was in town for a conference - but all my needs were addressed.
I would like to add a comment about the eclectic art. It wasn't an issue for me, but it would certainly make my more conservative family members.
Bruce and Barry were wonderful hosts. We were only there one night and would have loved to have more time to talk with them and their other guests, who all seemed like very interesting people. The room was great -- comfortable bed, cozy room, interesting decorations. We even had a little room off of the bedroom with a hammock, which was very nice! Bruce and Barry were very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. We would definitely stay there again!
We had a great stay, Bruce and Barry are very hospitable, friendly and helpful. The house is beautiful and not far from downtown by subway. Neighborhood is great too. Very quiet at night and safe also. We felt welcome since the moment we stepped into the house, we would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable and cozy accomodation in Boston.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Bruce and Barry's home. Both men are amazing hosts, offering us excellent tips about local restos and attractions, and inviting us to participate in their daily household life such as sharing brunch and going to the ballet. Their home is beautifully decorated. Our room was on the top floor - cozy and warm. The bathroom is like a spa, and even though it was shared, this was not an issue at all. Great location and safe neighbourhood, just 7-10 min walk to the convenient red T line, which links very well to downtown and Cambridge. There were other guests as well, all post-secondary students, which created a very enjoyable social atmosphere. Overall, we hope to return!
I highly recommend this place to stay in Boston.
Bruce and Barry were so welcoming and helpful. Their house is absolutely beautiful, clean and quiet. The neighborhood seemed very safe and quiet, too.
Thanks again, Bruce & Barry!
Talk about an amazing house & hosts! The house was beautifully decorated and better than we ever imagined. Best part was that our room had a hammock on the "sleeping porch"! Loved it! The bathrooms were also clean and spa-like. The location was great as well and close to the T. Wish we could have stayed longer! Perfect end to our anniversary vacation.
