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.
Other Things to Note
There are two miniature poodles in residence at Chateau B.
