Susan is a wonderful host! She made my mom, grandma and I feel so welcomed. Her place is well situated for touring Boston. The room was very comfortable for the three of us. The house is very clean and has a natural warmth to it. Also, her breakfast is yummy- I especially enjoyed the cranberry bread!
Susan is a really nice host and the room is neat & clean.
The location is near red line which is convenient to go downtown and other spots. We really enjoyed our stay.
The house is very well located for the T (subway system). Susan is very helpful. Breakfast excellent. On arrival, after a long journey, tired, warm, really just want to shower, change clothes etc., discussion re what we wanted to do in the area at this stage a bit premature, maybe a more casual approach. Zoe (the dog) very friendly !
My friend and I came into Boston to see the city and Susan's place was the perfect place for us. It was clean, had easy access to public transportation (the Shawmut T station is just around the corner) and Susan was a great host. Breakfast was amazing and it was very easy to come and go throughout the day to see the city.
Pleasant, clean and comfortable accommodation close to subway. Susan was readily available to assist with local information - parking, restaurants, finding our way around the city etc. We enjoyed excellent breakfasts, and when leaving Susan went 'above and beyond,' seeing us off with generous quantities of her excellent baked goods.
We (two kids, 10 and 13) and me had a very nice stay with Susan. She is a very attentive, friendly, respectful and well organized host, very friendly especially to my kids. The house is nice, all very clean, and is situated in a nice neighborhood, with good connection to Boston by the red line subway. Thank you, Susan!
