This B & B is lovely, with a beautiful view of Boston Harbor. Maggie was very accommodating with our arrival time, and very kind in general. Recommended.
We had a very pleasant experience at this Bed and Breakfast. We were met when we arrived by Maggie and Homemade Cookies! The entire place was VERY clean. We found this very refreshing. The house and the room were exactly as described and we enjoyed it very much. The bus stop is just down the street and it connected to the trains. We took public transportation everywhere and it was very easy. Would love to stay here again.
This was a brief overnight stop for me - but I love the place! Will be my first choice next time I need to stay overnight close to Logan airport.
My husband and I stay here on Christmas Eve and had found it to be the perfect choice. The Bed and Breakfast itself is a lovely house, beautifully decorated with a sitting room facing the ocean, across the street. The bedrooms are all clean and cozy with sweet personal touches everywhere you look. Maggie went out of her way to make us feel welcome and taken care of. Breakfast was delicious and there were cookies, fruit, and hot drinks available at any time of day. I highly recommend Harrington House for those who want to be near the city, but prefer to stay somewhere cozy and beautiful.
We loved our stay with Maggie. She is extremely hospitable and helpful. She has a wonderful home and is really equiped with yummy coffees and teas. I also enjoyed her baked goods. Great location, quick to get downtown Boston ( less than 30 mins). Smelled great!
A most wonderful airbnb experience. Could not have been better cared for. Entry into the home was a joy...beautiful smelling burning candle, beautiful 'old world' decor, lamps lit, nice music playing, freshly baked cookies on the table every night with hot drinks available. The little sitting room has a view out over the harbour. Our bedroom was beautiful and clean. The bathroom was always immaculate.
Maggie was a wonderful host...was there when we arrived and explained everything we needed to know re our stay in her home. Also around every evening. Delicious breakfast provided.
It is a little out of the way...need to catch a bus and a train...but we thought that was worth it to come 'home' to such a lovely environment.
Well done Maggie, and Joey.
I had a great experience here! I was free to come and go as I pleased and Maggie was super helpful in giving me suggestions for transportation since I did not have a car. The house was extremely clean and always smelled amazing! The location is great, I went for walks along the beach each day I was there and it was easy to get to & from the city. All in all, I would recommend this place hands down!
I had a very pleasant stay there! Maggie and Joey werealways very kind and helpful,
the house had a very individual and cosy atmosphere, everything was very well arranged and clean. A highlight every morning was the very good breakfast which Maggie prepared always different: fresh fruit, fresh organic yoghurt, self-prepared cereals and bakery.
I can recommend this place to everybody who loves a space to relax and feel "at home"
The bus to the subway station"orient height" goes three times per hour and takes only about ten minutes so that you are rarher quick downtown.
My boyfriend and I loved our stay with Maggie! Winthrop was a nice break from Boston, but you could still see the city across the water, which was nice. There are two beaches close by, very pretty at night. There's a nice park at the end of the peninsula which made for a great walk when we woke up in the morning. There were many close-by, inexpensive and delicious food options! We went to D'Parma's for dinner, I seriously recommend.
Maggie was welcoming, was there when you needed, and also gave you your space. The bathroom was very clean, our bed was super comfortable, Maggie has all sorts of books if you want or forgot one. There is wifi in the rooms, the cookies she bakes are absolutley delicious! Breakfast included different fruit, a home-baked croissant and yogurt.
Sorry for the long review--but great place, and my boyfriend and I plan on staying there again next time we're in Boston!
