we were made to feel extremly welcome very friendly people ,great location 10 minute walk to subway, our room was great very clean,we would return again without a doubt,
What a great experience!! Bruce and Barry were gracious hosts, and their house is beautiful and immaculately kept. When I stayed, there was other guests from Turkey, Spain and Alaska at the house. Bruce fed us, and we had great evening eating and talking on the front porch on a beautiful summer evening. Even with other people, the huge house never felt crowded, and my room was spacious and comfortable. Definitely at the top of my Airbnb experiences, and the top of my places to stay in Boston.
Our hosts Bruce and Barry were excellent hosts. They made us feel comfortable the moment we arrived at their lovely bed and breakfast home. The description of their home was correct in that they have painstakingly restored their lovely Victorian home filled with unique treasures. The home is located in a very safe and inviting neighborhood.
Barry and Bruce were absolutly awesome during our stay : Barry took a walk with us the first night to show us the area & access (great neighborhood & close to subway), and he made sure that we have everything we needed. The room was lovely, super clean, silent at anytime and the bed very confortable. The bathroom was clean too. The roomates are really quiet and respectfull. The breakfast was glooooooorious (toast, fruits, tea, marmelade, cheese, cereal, ...), we felt like king.
But what really touch us was Barry and Bruce's hospitality and generosity, they were really nice, and they've shared a lot with us, from stories to wine & cheese. :)
Highly recommend !
Bruce was not available, so we were hosted by Barry who was incredibly welcoming and warm. The house is simply gorgeous and very cleanly maintained. The house is about 0.5 miles from the MBTA train station, so very convenient. There was complimentary breakfast available and Barry came down during breakfast time and made sure we were comfortable.
All in all, Bruce and Barry made sure that our first trip to Boston was memorable. I would definitely recommend their listing to anyone planning on visiting Boston.
B&B is adorable. Lovely house with a nice porch to sit and drink coffee. Hosts were very accommodating. Our flight arrived early, and hosts allowed us to check in early. Place is also definitely within walking distance of the T-Line
We really enjoyed our stay at the Chateau B. Bruce & Barry have made the place very nice and inviting. It is in an excellent location to sightsee in and around Boston. It's just a short (1/2 mile) walk to the T station and an even shorter walk to the beach.
If you are leery, as I was, about staying in a house with a shared bathroom with no locks on the door, have no fear. The bathrooms do have sliding locks on the doors! :)
