Susan was a superb host. It is clear from the presentation of the home and her welcoming nature that she aims to provide a comfortable and hospitable environment. She is very knowledgeable about Boston, and can offer great recommendations for both dining and entertainment. Her breakfast selection is delicious and filling...if you like granola, you will appreciate hers...it's homemade. She also has an adorable puppy, who brings a unique charm to the B&B. Lastly, Susan is a quick and astute problem-solver who will try her best to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Susan is a wonderful host and she went over and way above my expectations in making me feel welcome. In fact, she made me feel like part of her family. The location of her place is literally two minutes from the T station and as such extremely convenient for commuting to any part of Boston. The room was large, comfortable, well-appointed and the entire house bore the signs of a very high level of cleanliness. I am sure I am missing out many wonderful things Susan did to make my stay pleasant, like asking me my breakfast habits, offering me tea at the end of the day....and the list goes on. She even carried my suitcase up the stairs to the third floor where my room was knowing that I had to be careful with my back. Honestly, cannot wait till the the next opportunity to stay at hers. Thank You, Susan for the incredibly sweet experience!
Susan welcomed us warm although it was late in the evening. She is very nice and lovely and we enjoyed the time very much. Susan has a very cute dog called Zoe. The rooms are clean. You will be in about 20 minutes in the centre of Boston if you take the metro.
Wow! I have 3 words; homemade apple cake.
We spent 5 nights at Susan's home while exhibiting at a Boston trade show and we really needed good and relaxing sleep. Bedroom was comfy and very quiet arranged with flowers and chocolate. Multi choice breakfast with homemade granola or cake was from outer space. Zoe, the chocolate ball of fur, was very cute and affectionate and Susan was charming and very helpful with tons of caring suggestions. Even thought the train stop was only around the corner we wound up using the car for the drive into the city and took several different routes each time so we had a chance to see some spectacular views of old homes, beaches and neighborhoods. Time flew by fast leaving us with good memory.
Wir waren 5 Nächte in Boston. Die Unterkunft von Susan war sehr sauber und gemütlich eingerichtet. In unserem Zimmer hatten wir alles, was wir brauchten. Es war ruhig und angenehm warm, sodass wir wirklich gut entspannen konnten, nach unseren langen Erkundungstouren durch Boston. Susan war eine sehr nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, die sich mit ganzem Herzen um uns gekümmert hat und uns somit einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt beschert hat. Das Haus liegt nah an der T-Station (Red Line) sodass man sehr schnell in der Innenstadt von Boston aber auch in Cambridge sein kann.
I want to be just as well received as in Susan, where we were treated really as guests.
The house is very clean, nice, we feel quickly at home.
Susan is smiling, dynamic, caring, and gives you advice on your visits.
I really hope to come back here.
see you soon
I feel secure and comfortable staying at Susan's nice house. It is very convinent to travel around boston from her place, since it is very near to MBTA Shawmut station. The neighbourhood feels safe too.
This is my first time to Boston and country with snow. I feel very lucky and glad that I have friendly Susan to guide me.
