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.

I just want to echo what everyone else has said; this is a five star B & B. Bruce and Barry were wonderful hosts. Our room was spacious and private and the entire house was gorgeous. We especially enjoyed having complimentary fresh fruit and coffee for breakfast with Barry every morning of our visit.
We enjoyed our stay at Bruce and Barry's beautiful Victorian home. Within walking distance of the 'T', made traveling easy. Their home was clean and comfortable in a quiet neighborhood of Dorchester. Malibu Beach is a block way, which we enjoyed walking. Thanks for the rain poncho, it saved me from getting trenched watching my son run in the Boston Marathon. Jack and I highly recommend this home for a short or a long stay. Their hospitality was exceptional! Jack and Melanie, Estes Park, CO
De très bons hôtes, qui apprécient la culture française et seront de bon conseil pour vous faire découvrir la ville. Une petite dizaine de minutes de marche de la ligne rouge de métro.
We spent three nights at Bruce and Barry's place, and felt welcomed in a very warm and nice home.
Our hosts gave us some tips to visit the town, showed us some nice places, and even gave us advices for the end of our trip, away from Boston.
We definitely would come back if we plan to visit Boston again. They live in a nice area south of downtown, close from the T red line, very convenient to go in town.
Thank you for hosting us, and thanks for the cheese at breakfast !
Bruce was a wonderful host. They both made me feel very welcome, and provided everything I needed. The house itself was gorgeous, and the room was amazing. It's in a lovely, quiet neighborhood, with lots of available parking. It was very clean, and overall made for a wonderful stay. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone!
Staying here was the best place we stayed on vacation. The house is beautiful and the hosts were wonderful. I would stay there when going to Boston again.
Three days in Boston just isn't enough! We could spend a week and would be thrilled to spend it with Bruce and Barry. They were super friendly, the house has a wonderful, open, youthful vibe and the location is great. The transit stop is only a couple blocks down the street making the location perfect! Just had a great stay. Great local pubs and McKenna's for breakfast is a treat.
