I visited Boston to spend five days soaking in the art at the Museum of Fine Art, the Boston Public Library, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
I found this B&B on Tripadvisor, and it was everything positive that people have posted.
I was collected from the airport, a lovely perk for a solo female traveler. My Irish hosts were cordial, thoughtful, and keenly intelligent. I particularly enjoyed Dympna's ready sense of humor and wry wit.
My room was spacious and quiet, the bed comfortable, and there was ample hot water. I was more interested in the bed than the breakfast, often leaving very early to wander around squares and churches before the museums opened. My hosts thoughtfully left me plates of scones or muffins in the evening, which I would enjoy with the pot of tea I made in the adjacent kitchenette.
This was my first trip to Boston, and this accommodation was ideal for me. The B&B was in a great walking area, and I became an evening regular at the lively Flour Bakery is around the corner.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
