About this listing
Complete private Beacon Hill apartment, with reinterpreted Shaker furniture made by us.
Amazing location short walk to Freedom trail, Boston Common, MGH, Theatre Dist. Best for 2 or 3, sleeps up to 4. Red, Blue & Green lines all a short walk away!
We have built and are building very nice, historically accurate specimens of shaker furniture to furnish the apartment. The bed, trundle, nightstand and pegboards and breakfast table are all there and complete.
Check-in/out is as flexible as possible. Everything is in the apartment (kitchen with fridge and 4 burner stove-oven and full bathroom with shower/tub) nothing shared.
Interaction with Guests
The apartment though is 100% private to you, I won't bother you during the stay (unless you want me to!)
Gas lamps. No vacant lots. Great architectural detail. 99.5% masonry buildings, all more or less dating between 1830 and 1910. Ivy here and there. A couple of wood framed gems from the 17th and 18th centuries tucked in here and there. Little passageways through blocks. A couple of very nice playgrounds. Great proximity to esplanade, Boston Common and Charles street (shopping/restaurants).
The best location for subway access in Boston. Blue line at Bowdoin (now open full hours of operation-BEST transportation from Logan Airport!), Red line at Charles/MGH), or Red, Green and Orange at Park street. North station is a 5 min walk away for Commuter Rail and Downeaster (Amtrak to the "downeast" i.e. coastal Maine). South station is the third stop from Charles MGH on the red line. Or an enjoyable 20-25 min walk through downtown.
Other Things to Note
If you drive here, note Parking is limited, this is downtown Boston! For a one day stay, the cheapest thing to do is park on Cambridge st or in a Beacon Hill Visitor Parking spot overnight--it's limited and you will often have to hunt (circle) for this free parking. Read all signs on the block. Ask questions if you're not sure. Boston will fine you up to $150 for parking in the wrong place and will tow in the middle of the night if you mess up.
For longer stays, park in the Boston Common Garage. ($27 a day).
My partner made the maple & cherry furniture for this apartment. Please be nice to it (wipe & dry with spong any food..don't drip hot wax..). Also say what you like about it in your review (-: if you like it follow @treeturn on instagram!
Sheets, towels and other cleaning are done by me. I do these things at different times. Always before dinner time (or before you arrive it's a really late arrival). Probably before 3pm, during the school year at about 1pm usually. If you have really specific needs, you should speak up ahead of time.
The apartment will be cleaned in the afternoon some time before dinner time--I try to get it all done before arrival, but otherwise "check in" means key pick up and luggage drop. There is no specific check in time--except that it's after 12 noon. I may be flexible on this, but don't expect it per se.
Please contain trash--if you need something removed i'll take it away for you (let me know) Do NOT put things in the hallway (NEVER) or on the street without checking with me first. Trash can be on the street after 5pm on thursdays and sundays. Nothing should be placed on the street after 6am monday or friday.
