My wife and I picked Dashwood for a quiet and relaxing spring break and we were not disappointed. The B&B is located immediately next to Beacon Hill Park, along with the walking path along the ocean that eventually leads into the heart of the city. It is about a 20 minute walk into the city, either through or around the park. There is also a small "village" just 5 minutes' walk down the street with some restaurants (including a great authentic Italian pizzeria), a grocery store and a drug store. The location of the house is also great for very quiet nights...no traffic noise at all. We loved the location.
Most of the rooms have views of the ocean, as did ours, so its possible to read in front of the windows and watch ships go by, or watch the many joggers going by. The B&B is itself an almost 100-year old house--very charming and lots of character. Our room was large with a soaker tub in the corner, although the bathroom is a little tight...can really only have one person in there at a time, comfortably, but that's to be expected in an old house like this. The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean.
The breakfasts were also something to look forward to. The breakfast room looks out to the water through a large window, the food was great, and the mood was enhanced with the music played in there each morning (some Dianna Krall, Michael Buble, and others).
The hosts are also very helpful and responsive to any requests.
