Welcoming home near downtown Boston and historic sights, ready to host you. We host guests in our home when we travel ourselves. The spacious house is fully equipped with A/C and kitchen appliances, and has a deck outside. Our location is ideal for business travelers, families, or holiday vacationers - 10 min walk to subway (T), 2 blocks from Freedom Trail. Bunker Hill Monument is visible from the top floor, our Boston neighborhood of Charlestown charms our guests every time.

The space

Come stay in our comfortable house in a historic part of Boston. You’ll enjoy spacious digs within walking distance of downtown, only two blocks from the Freedom Trail.

Our house is located in the charming Boston neighborhood of Charlestown on Bunker Hill. Across the river from the North End (Little Italy), we live in a safe, cohesive neighborhood with its own distinct maritime flavor, yet within a 15-20 min walk to downtown. Charlestown has its own bars and restaurants, but is mostly known for its role in the Revolutionary War. We live on Bunker Hill, the monument is visible from the back of our house. Our local pub, the Warren Tavern is older than the United States. Nearby Old Ironsides is the oldest boat in the fleet. Todd English's restaurant Figs is just a few blocks away. I take my daughter for walks on the docks or into parks in Cambridge. Whole Foods is 5 min walk away. TD Garden is about 20 min walk away. And we are about a 7-10 minute walk to the Community College Orange line T stop, 93 bus stop is at the end of our block (goes to Haymarket and Downtown Crossing), MBTA water shuttle to Long Wharf is a few min walk away. Hubway bike stop is 2 blocks away. There's free street parking in the evenings and weekends. Approximately 15 min taxi ride to airport (or 10 min water taxi!).

Our house is from the 19th century, but completely updated. Private, unhosted, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms. It's perfect for a family or couple sets of friends. There's a large kitchen, separate dining room, living room, and extra room we call the lounge. We have a comfy king sleep number bed, queen bed, and single bed or queen air mattress. There's only one bath/shower which is why we recommend 4 people. Best of all, we have a deck out back! Amenities include washer, dryer, dishwasher, iron, WIFI, central Air conditioning. We've never had pets and never smoked. Our children are young, we keep the house uncluttered as toddler-proofing.

Guest access

Guests will have access to WiFi, en suite laundry, all rooms of the house except the attic and the basement.

Interaction with guests

Usually we are traveling when we are hosting. We are available by text, phone, or message all the time. When we are staying out of town, my parents (also Bn'B hosts) handle emergency issues. We've been hosting for more than five years and had very few problems.

Other things to note

This is our home, not a vacation home. The benefit is that the house has everything to keep you comfortable (use our olive oil!) but the downside is that we do not have extra space in or closets for guest items. There is plenty of space. Of the 6 rooms (excluding bathrooms) in the house, 3 are bedrooms. Lastly, we do not have private parking. Ask me for other parking options.

Finola's place was fantastic! My friends and I had a good time staying at her place. The location of this place is great and close to most sightseeings. Finola was helpful and easy to get in touch with. The place was cozy so we felt like had a sleepover in a friend's place. Highly recommended.

Cozy home in a great neighborhood. Great area if you like to walk around and sightsee. Short walk to a large Whole Foods and we were also able to walk to the North End for dinner. The home comfortably slept four adults. My only complaint, and it's minor, is that there was only one, very small TV and no room where four people could lounge and talk comfortably without someone being on the floor. This was only noticeable because Boston was hit with a spring snow storm and we were somewhat housebound for a day. Otherwise, great place to stay all around. Host was accessible, welcoming and provided a great list of things to do and see in the area.

Finola's home was perfect for what we needed for the weekend! We came there to find towels and necessities laid out on our beds and easy to follow instructions in case we needed anything during our stay. The home is clean, comfortable, safe, and inviting! Thank you for letting us stay for the weekend.

Finola was an amazing host and her residence was warm and inviting - it didn't hurt that it was 2 blocks away from my brother's home in Charlestown, and centrally located to shops, the ferry, and the airport!

Finola was very welcoming. She included a note describing what to do around the area. Communication with Finola was instantaneous.

Finola and her husband left us really comprehensive instructions that were very helpful. They provided parking maps and restaurant suggestions and they were exactly what we needed. Additionally, they left me a bottle of wine that I totally needed after two days spent looking at colleges with teenagers!!! I felt very welcomed and their house was a real gem. The kids loved it and the neighborhood! We were very comfortable and it was so much better than staying in a hotel. We each had our privacy and it made our trip that much easier.

My experience at Cozy House on Bunker Hill was nothing short of perfect. The hosts had everything in order when we arrived, check in was seamless and easy and the arrangements were everything I was expecting. The apartment was super clean, bright and awesome with plenty of space and a great atmosphere, it certainly lived up to its name.
