5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2011

We found this place to be a treasure, nestled in a lovely quiet area. We came over from Boston on public transportation. It was easy to get to and find. Also a short walk from the Libertyride tour, and not that far to walk for dinner. The hostess is gracious, attentive, and very accomodating. She is helpful with local information, and a good conversationalist.Our room was very nice, quiet, and we relaxed and slept well during our entire visit. Breakfast was delicious, with a nice variety. If you are visiting this area, I highly recoomend to give them a try.

Room Tip: Try the poolroom, nice way to relax.

Gracious hostess Alix, took our late night arrival in stride during the recent MA tornadoes and even talked us in from Lexington town center as we Arizonans were dealing with the heavy weather. We are innkeepers in Tucson, and so look at properties as both guests and hosts, and we'll acknowledge that "up front". The Pool Room was as spacious and bed as comfortable as others have attested. The multiple sky lights had been opened prior to our arrival and the heavy winds had caused dirt to sift through the screen coverings onto the bed (even a little worm) and the bath sink. Alix quickly responded to our comments in the morning by offering to clean, and giving us Windex and paper towels. At breakfast, Alix thoughtfully accommodated my iced coffee request. We were served the same - scrambled eggs and bacon both mornings. She remarked that she figured out we didn't care for bacon since we didn't take it the first day and she was vegetarian (but it was still there the 2nd day). It's nice to hear that she does offer oatmeal and frittatas. Alix clearly loves this family home and its furnishings are very period. We did not meet her husband, and their daughter was at a school trip. The location requires driving (whereas a later stay in another community was closer to Mass T) and parking in the driveway was a bit tight, but Lexington is delightful to explore and we returned with a greater appreciation of our Nation's early patriots!

My husband, 8 year old daughter and I enjoyed a single night stay at Morgan's Rest this weekend. We stayed in the "pool" room - an enormous converted attic with a comfy king size bed, full-sized antique pool table (the room is so big that the pool table took up only a small fraction of the space), delightful private bathroom with a wonderful shower and sweeping cathedral ceilings and numerous skylights. We were able to lie in bed at night and look up at the stars. It was heaven!

We were greeted by Inn keeper Alex who was lovely and welcoming. The location of this B & B is perfect for anyone visiting Lexington proper or Boston in general. Close to the major highways and quietly nestled in a lovely residential neighborhood. This B & B has a lovely little fish pond outside (actually I didn't see fish - but it seems like a fish pond) along with a lovely teak picnic table and lots and lots of strawberry plants. Our daughter slept on a comfy roll-away bed (she loved it) and thanks to a large stone chimney in the center of the room my husband and I felt that we had a bit of privacy even though we were sharing the room with our daughter.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, home made bread, fresh squeezed OJ and a yummy fritata.

We highly recommend this lovely B & B!!

We stayed in the Follen Room which had plenty of space for a rollaway bed. Alex and Jon are wonderful, friendly, and accommodating hosts. They cooked up scrumptuous breakfasts and we enjoyed chatting with them. We felt like we were staying with old friends. The house has a very nice lived-in feel, but is older so don't expect being in the lap of luxury. We were the only guests over the weekend so we were welcomed to use the pool table in the pool room which is a very large, There is a microwave and refrigerator in the upstairs hall for guests. We came in late spring and were told that they had window AC units that they had not installed yet. The ceiling fan was sufficient for us. There was a small TV but we did not watch much of it. We took more advantage of the free wifi. The location is in a quiet residential area. It is close to Lexington & Concord sights and easy access to the Metro and Harvard. But driving to downtown or the North End will require navigating through a lot of city streets. We would definitely stay here again if we are in Boston again.

Morgan's Rest is a wonderful B&B; a comfortable home away from home, and a great place to stay.

The gracious owner went out of her way to be helpful, and answer questions as needed, especially about traveling/driving in the area.

The fresh, home made breakfasts were delicious. We were asked our preference, as well as our preferred hour to eat. Hot oatmeal along with a freshly baked loaf of oat bread awaited us. Before leaving on our last morning, we were given the opportunity to use the loaf of bread to make sandwiches for our daylong train trip.

We were very grateful for this very hospitable and friendly B &B.

I stayed here on a research trip to Boston, preferring to be in a quieter venue outside the city. I would recommend this bed and breakfast highly, as it is small, personable and a really beautiful house. Also, a much better value (by at least half) than downtown Boston prices. The owners spent a fair amount of time helping me with logistics, and gave me a printed map to the closest subway station (10 minutes away). This worked out very well for me.

We are from the Caribbean and we were interested in staying in a budget bed and breakfast and staying at Morgan's Rest was exactly the winter experience we asked for. Of course, in the summer would be beautiful as well! The service was excellent, the breakfast was AMAZINGLY good and we even got the chance to shovel some snow and make snow angels. Since it was low season, we had asked for the smaller room but the owner upgraded us with no charge to the bigger room which has a pool table and a private bathroom. It's a perfect New England house and great neighborhood!! I recommend this b&b to anyone going to Boston or Lexington, MA, which is on the outskirts of Boston.
