Arrived in the evening with my two friends. After a 30+ minute orientation (do not be in a rush, be prepared for this), we got ready, walked two blocks to the train and headed out on the town! It is roughly a $20-$25 Uber to/from Quincy Market. Great historic house. Rooms are upstairs and there are three (maybe four) rooms rented out at a time. You will share a bathroom, but it's very clean & large and there's a half bath on the first floor you're able to utilize as well. Susan definitely is a thorough host and will be around... 4/5 stars for our experience. Thanks!

Susan welcomed me when I arrived with information on my stay. There was breakfast available, including homemade granola and space in the refrigerator. The house is near the train station and it is really easy to get to anywhere in Boston that way. It was a fun, historic old home.

Susan was the most gracious and welcoming host we have met through our journeys! She was prompt and always available to reply to our inquiries and questions, either via text or messaging through AirBnB. She greeted us upon our arrival, acquainted us with everything in the house, our bedroom and bathroom. We had clean set of linens and towels ready for us and also the finer touches of soothing, welcoming classical music in our room! The attention to details were truly 5-star quality. The experience was amplified by her talented culinary skills. The granola cereal was home-made, as well as the freshly baked banana bread for breakfast. We even got to taste a special desert she made for us on our last night there, Apple crisp with vanilla ice was just so delicious. The room and bathroom were immaculately clean and comfortable. The location of the house was perfect for us who like to take public transportation...the location was one or two blocks from the redline station. Just FYI, Redline is the fastest MBTA subway line in Boston and very convenient to get in and out of the city. Susan definitely gave us 5-star treatment and a 5-star experience! We would rather stay at her house any day vs at one of the commercial locations downtown. The cost was perfect as well. This being our first time using AirBnB, we were pleasantly surprised and loved the experience, thanks to Susan!

This was our second stay with Susan. She greeted us like old friends! We highly recommend her and her accommodations. We crossed paths with a family from Australia and thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

Susan is a warm and generous host. We enjoyed our stay and the attention to all the details that helped make or experience comfortable. Susan is prompt and responsive in all communications. She is a great baker! The quiche was a great breakfast treat.

The house is located in a quite neighborhood very close to a subway station and there is free parking space around her neighborhood. Also, the train ride is about 15-20 minutes to downtown - very convenient! Susan is a very pleasant and kind host. She makes you feel right at home and goes out of her way to help with anything needed. Susan gave us great advice on which places to visit places and activities to do. But, most of all we enjoyed her home made breakfast and her company - I totally recommend her!

We had a great time at Susan's! Would definitely recommend. We stayed for a month and she made us feel comfortable and recommended some excellent local places to visit.
