The space
Find us in the heart of the Gaslit Bunker Hill District. It is just minutes on foot from The Financial District, Downtown, North End, Cambridge, Somerville, and Memorial Drive. It is convenient for access to MIT, Harvard, Boston Marathon, Boston Duck Tour, Museums, and Quincy Market.

The home is fully decorated in a classic colonial style inside and out. Antique furniture and decorations adorn each room of the properties' three levels.

On the first floor is a great kitchen with lots of counter space, and comfortable dining area with antique table. Across is the sitting room for reading or afternoon tea, or relaxing on a cold night in front of the fireplace.

The master bedroom, located on the second floor, has a large king bed, en suite bath, and fireplace. Not to mention the two closets for comfortable storage. Also on the 2nd floor, the second bedroom has a queen bed and large en suite bath and closet.

The third bedroom is located up the stairs on the 3rd floor. It has 2 twin beds, a skylight and the full bath is in the hall.

The fourth bedroom/office is also on the 3rd floor and has one twin bed. It shares the full bath in the hall with the other bedroom. It has a large partner desk for people who need space to spread out and work. (This room is available for parties of 7, or for smaller parties for an additional fee)

The basement includes exercise equipment and the washer and dryer with laundry supplies included for your stay.

The properties' grounds include the large front porch that extends across the front of the house, perfect for outdoor dining on the big wooden table. The wild flower garden is just a few steps away. You really feel like you've stepped into the past inside these walls, but still have all the comforts you need.

The house dates back all the way to 1790. This is the former home of Admiral Henry A. Wiley. A Distinguished Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II veteran, and Commander of the Boston Navy Yard from 1921 to 1923. The USS Henry A. Wiley a navy destroyer (named after the admiral) was commissioned on August 31, 1944 the year after the admiral's death. She received four battle stars during World War II.

There is also one parking space available for small vehicles. Arrival information will be sent out 3 days prior to arrival.

Other things to note
We have a keyless entry system that means smooth access for guests. Two bikes are available for use throughout the city or along Memorial Drive which follows the Charles River. We have a Pack n' Play for guests traveling with small children. We have four televisions with Netflix and other streaming services and two televisions also have local channels. Linens and Towels provided. Basic cooking and laundry essentials provided. Basic breakfast items provided (cereal, oatmeal, milk). Some food items may be stored in the cabinets and fridge, feel free to use anything.

It's an old house so no central air - Heating is electric radiators with some baseboard heat, AC is from window units. It's very comfortable but if you've never used these before ask us tips to help get the climate to your liking.

Parking for one small car available, Larger vehicles or SUVs are possible but more difficult. Our location is very convenient, for walking and public transportation.

Please note before booking: It is an older historic house with some antique furniture pieces, not everything will be brand new and some things will be quirky. We try to keep everything in top shape but like with any house it is a continuing battle of priorities. There is no central air. The parking space is small and narrow. The bathrooms are smaller. If you think any of these will be a problem please ask before booking. We want you to enjoy your time and don't want you to stay if these will have a negative impact on your trip.

The house is cleaned from top to bottom between each rental.

Location

Boston, Massachusetts, United States

Charlestown is charming, quiet, and historic, but still just a stone's throw away from all the action Boston has to offer. A number of local restaurants and bars including Todd English's Figs, Warren Tavern, Ironsides Grill, Old Sully's, Legal Oysteria (Legal Sea Foods), and others. Short walk to Whole Foods, CVS, Post Office, and casual restaurants.
