Here's the skinny: Going to the Revere house is like visiting staying at your friend's house: not a hotel feel at all. The house is set one block away from the main drag, a short walk from the ferry, but is on a very quiet street, very peaceful. The house has a small bit of street frontage and a gate blocking the driveway, as we learn, to keep the pets inside the yard: A cat and a few small, very friendly, dogs wander the property. As it was a quiet time, Gary was kind enough to switch us to a room with a larger bed. The rooms we saw are very clean, small, and ours had a tiny shower and WC. There is a sun porch on the roof and a patio in the back, the patio being in a temporary state of disrepair as he was switching out the hot tub for a fire pit. In the back is a breakfast room, a converted garage (?) used to serve breakfast which was fresh baked muffins, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, bagels, juice, coffee, etc.
I had read the bad reviews before visiting and I can see where Gary could get his dander up a bit: it is his house and he deeply cares about it. That said, Gary was nothing but super friendly to us. Not only did he get us a room with a larger bed, but, after we checked out, we went for a long bike ride before catching the ferry: Gary stored our bags, and after the ride, gave us access to a shower with fresh towels, and cold drinks.
So, on the plus side: Location, clean (!!), quiet, very friendly, home-like. On the down side: small room, parking is limited, and if you don't like dogs/cats ... the pets are out and about. We loved it and will definitely come again.
