Leslie was a welcoming host who made my three day stay very pleasant. She answered questions I had including what was available in the neighborhood as well as public transportation to
Boston. There turned out to be a major snowstorm but the parking place in the back was plowed as was the driveway. The house is two minutes from Rt. 9, a major road to Boston which is only 15-20 minutes away. And, importantly, the bedroom is large and comfortable.
My time at this b&b was perfect for my needs. I had access to the T to get to my destinations with no more than a 15 min. walk. The host had everything I needed available and provided me with some coffee and a light breakfast the next morning. If ever I have the need to be in the area again, I will definitely stay at Subway to Boston! It was ideal.
Leslie was very hospitable and accommodating. The room was comfortable and in a convenient location. I plan on staying here again in the future.
Always great to stay with Leslie!
My daughter stayed. Few days & thought it a warm
Welcoming environment & a lovely room.
Once again, Leslie was a gracious host, even during the threat of inclement weather. I highly recommend Leslie.
Leslie's place was just as described! A lovely place, clean and comfortable, and a short walk from T to Boston. Leslie is friendly and hospitable.
Although Leslie wasn't around during my stay she laid everything out clearly, comfortably and thoughtfully so that my visit was delightful. She is a terrific host! I highly recommend her!
Leslie and her place are both fantastic! I had a great experience there. Her home is very nice - large bedroom, large bathroom, access to the kitchen, and the neighborhood is one of the best in Boston. Leslie and her friend were unbelievably hospitable - brought me coffee and milk in the morning, drove me to Whole Foods and picked me up from the train. I don't know if this kind of hospitality is normal for Leslie but I was very moved by her care and kindness. I will definitely stay here again - feels like home away from home. COMPLETELY RECOMMEND!
