Great location

Beautiful house in a fantastic, fun neighborhood, complete with a unique front porch and your own deck in the back.
The house is quiet, safe and relaxed. You will often have the entire flat to yourselves. :)

The space
Enjoy a historical Bostonian experience in this unique and beautiful c.1857 Queen Anne Victorian, situated in the middle of fantastic Union Sq. Take in the panoramic views of Boston from nearby Prospect Hill - where the first true American flag proudly flew in 1776.
Less than a mile to Harvard Sq and MIT, public transportation is directly across the street. Independently owned cafes, a comic book store, record shop, breweries, pubs/live music/restaurants, yoga studios, gourmet/ethnic markets, grocery store, public library, laundry, Union Sq. Farmer's Market - all just steps away and only minutes from Downtown and the North End.
At The Dollhouse, you are welcomed to relax on the lovely and unique "pocket" front porch, as you're surrounded by Historic "Doctor's Row" scenery. Upstairs, and attached to your room is a walk-out to the glorious private deck in the back, where you can check out the views of The Pru and downtown Boston.
This charming and unique apartment has all the original Victorian woodwork, moldings and stained glass throughout. The bathroom is bright, airy, and delightfully detailed with an original faux fireplace. The kitchen is clean and complete with all the appliances and stuff you need. Upon arrival, you can just drop your bags and make yourself at home while you soak-in your 'wickid-ahhsome' Bostonian surroundings.
There will always be fresh sheets, towels, bottled water, coffee & tea for the Dollhouse guests to enjoy.

I've worked as a Bostonian tour guide. Imo, The Freedom Trail is the best city walking in the United States! :) The activities I enjoy the most are Oculus Supernatural, pilates/yoga hiking, body surfing, clam digging, rock collecting, traveling, reading, art/music, driving around and just hanging out with my friends and family. I have a collection of dictionaries, antiquarian history books, and I love vintage purses, old movies and dark comedy.
