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.
There are two miniature poodles in residence at Chateau B.
This is my second time staying at Bruce and Barry's. I had such a great time this summer... that it was a no brainer when I was traveling back to Boston to stay with them again. They are such delightful and accommodating gentlemen. The house was decorated beautifully for the holidays. I was even fortunate enough to be there for a New Year brunch they threw. Excellent hosts through and through! They are my go to Boston destination!
Barry greeted us at the door with a big smile, which set the tone for our stay. The room was just as we expected, with a very comfortable bed. Since we were there for just one night after more than 14 hours of travel, we just wanted to eat, unwind and go to sleep. It was a five minute walk to a reasonable priced eatery with decent food. On the way we passed the "T", which is an added bonus if you don't want to drive in Boston. The next day, we almost got off later than we planned because we really enjoyed our morning chat after breakfast. We definitely hit it off and will stay at Bruce and Barry's home again.
Bruce and Barry were great hosts. The house was clean and cozy. I felt at ease from our initial interaction. I stayed for 5 days in a beautiful room. The bed was very comfrotable. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. Being at walking distance from the T was a treat. I had a lovely stay. I enjoyed the night when they invited me to join them for dinner with another housemate. Thank you for a great first experience with AirBnB.
It was wet and cold and at night and Bruce met us, helped us with our bags, carried them even upstairs to our room! Such a love,y friendly greeting.
What a beautiful home, and such nice people! I wish I'd had more time to spend with Bruce and Barry. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and they were so willing to go above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Highly recommended.
We just spent 5 nights in Boston with Bruce and Barry and loved it. They are warm and friendly, have a charming and comfortable home in a nice quiet neighborhood. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom sharing was no problem and clean when we used it, and it was just 2 blocks from the T station.
Even more fun was the interaction with others in the house. While we were there several graduate students from US and other countries were staying and one lively evening around the dining table was a real treat. We'd definitely stay there again when in Boston.
Bruce & Barry were wonderful hosts. Theroom is exactly as shown but bigger, bed is sooo comfortable, sharing bathrooms wasn't an issue at all (we even got dry towels each day) & it was lovely to meet the others staying in the house too. Breakfast was most appreciated.
Easy to get to the subway & walking distance to good places to eat with reasonable prices.
