great value

5 sur août 30, 2018

Needed a temporary lodging for my mom. Morgot got me free breakfast every time I came over to visit my mom, and it was much better than continental breakfast in most hotels. The place is well maintained. Toiletries are high quality. Margot also offered to help find an apt for my mom who's wasn't familiar with the area. Great place to stay overall.

Thank you for your review. It was my pleasure in helping to assist finding potential long term housing for your Mom since I am also a real estate broker. I have lived in Wellesley for over 30 years and know the surrounding communities well. It was a joy to serve you breakfast along with your Mom when you stopped by to visit her. Thank you for choosing Wellesley Bed and Breakfast.

Hostess even more delightful than property

5 sur août 30, 2018

The location is lovely and convenient: sophisticated suburb of Boston and walking distance to food, etc. The hostess goes over the top to exceed traveler's expectations. Not only are the rooms immaculate but the outdoor gardens and indoor flowers are exquisite. Breakfast is out of the ordinary. You will want to come back just to have a afternoon tea with the hardworking owner.

Thank you for your kind words. It was delightful to meet you! I am glad you enjoyed my garden flowers! I am looking forward to hosting you again in the future!

Communication with the owner on the day of arrival was difficult. She was off site. 2 abandoned vehicles were parked in the driveway. The owner entered the room with a key and left a rude note on the bed, while I was out walking. Breakfast (not so hot) was served on a desk in the small bedroom..There wasn't a dining room on the first floor. The photos are misleading.. The room and hall was too crowded with furniture and excess stuff.

Réponse du propriétaire
Thank you for the feedback. Perhaps you forgot - to call 48 hours before checking in so that I could review parking instructions and meet and greet you personally at the front door. Unfortunately my schedule can not accommodate 24/7 door service - by appointment or in the event of a detained plane - I am happy to provide self check-in details. I am sorry that I hurt your feelings and do not know what kind of note you found. Maybe I requested that you park your vehicle at an angle so all other arriving guests could do likewise - which allows for every car to have easy access - in and out of the driveway. I am not aware of any abandoned blbehicles anywhere in my driveway nor in the town of Wellesley. Wellesley is one of the top 17 communities in the nation. The individual rooms all feature a mini refrigerator, a microwave and coffee machine. The hallway offers a tea collection, a Brita water filter, a sugar collection including alternative sugars and honey. Some guests rave about the room service because each room offers use of bath robes and sometimes a guest prefers privacy because it’s more relaxing to enjoy room service. Each guest designates the time that they would like breakfast. Breakfast offering is continental - mostly organic ingredients - and if you prefer differently, there are many restaurants/bakeries within walking distance. I always ask every guest if there are any food allergies I should be aware of and welcome special needs. I invite guests to call or text me anytime with questions/concerns so that I have the opportunity to enhance their visit to Wellesley. My business thrives on returning guests and hosting guests from around the world is a pleasure and brings me joy.

A unique find

Clean, comfortable & convenient! Reasonably priced with gracious hospitality-an innkeeper that caters to her guests. For example Innkeeper made a special trip to the store for premium orange juice. A great alternative to the branded hotels nearby.

Great location and amazing customization.

We had a wonderful stay at the Wellesley Bed and Breakfast. It is located right across the street from a beautiful trail which was perfect for my morning run. Margot also made us a healthy breakfast with low carbs at my request. She even gave us a personal tour of Wellesley College's private lake. I would highly recommend staying there.

Réponse du propriétaire
I am thrilled that you enjoyed my favorite scenic trail around Lake Waban. It’s always fun to make a suggestion that works well with your interests. I am glad you appreciated the breakfast modified to your liking. Thanks so much for sharing your food preferences in advance. I am glad to serve special requests. Please come again soon!

Thanks for mentioning green living. I try to maintain a green home which includes using organic unscented laundry detergent and non-toxic cleaning supplies.

Hope to see you again soon!

Wellesley's Garden of Eaton

5 sur novembre 28, 2016

This is a real nice quaint bed and breakfast conveniently located just above the bustling Wellesley Hills business district, a real convenient location to shop, take the train to Boston, run, or otherwise have a good time. Inn keeper Margot is an awesome hostess attending to your needs and going out of her way to serve you well. The house is clean with beds and furniture comfortable, and mini-fridges and microwave ovens are there for you needs. The rooms are elegantly make up and decorated. So do highly recommend the Wellesley Bed and Breakfast.

Thank you for mentioning the extra amenities - each room features a coffee machine, mini refrigerator and microwave.

Great coffee great location

5 sur novembre 05, 2016

I recently stayed on a business trip at the Wellesley Bed and Breakfast in a large room with a very nice private bath. The king sized bed was quite comfortable and I felt my needs were carefully anticipated in the large assortment of teas and toiletries. Margot asked me what my breakfast preferences were and provided me with excellent Dallmayer coffee. I was able to get up the next day and make a strong and tasty cup of coffee. The house is right next to the Fuller Brook park, a lovely place to walk or run, which is so important when I'm on the road. Margot served a very nice breakfast of almond french toast with cranberries and nuts which was ample enough to provide me with breakfast for 3 days. The parklike setting belies the fact that the house is very convenient to major roads.

Réponse du propriétaire
I’m glad you enjoyed the trails that run for approximately five miles and start just one block from my home. The deep dish baked French Toast with apples, cranberries and nuts is my house specialty which is made with mostly organic ingredients. Thank you for your kind words. I hope to host you again soon!

Wellsley B&B is small, but very private and comfortable and exceeded my expectations. It was easy to find off the highway and is close to shops and restaurants. Margot is a very attentive host, and provided me an excellent breakfast. This was my first time at a B&B and my first time staying alone, and she made me feel at ease and very welcome. I highly recommend as a one night or as an extended stay.

Wonderful little B&B in a great location. Just minutes from Babson, Olin, and Wellesley Colleges. Nice restaurants and shops one block away in Wellesley Hills. A couple of blocks up the hill is a back entrance to Centennial park with nice hiking/jogging trails. Margot was a great host and her breakfasts stretched my conception of "continental" breakfast in wonderful ways.

Sad occasion, but a lovely stay

4,8 sur mai 15, 2016

Sadly, 4 Wellesley friends came to attend funeral at Wellesely for a college friend of ours who had just died. A sad occasion indeed, but a lovely weekend all in all. The rooms are small, but met our needs. Chocolate greeted us. Margot was very helpful and accommodating, and breakfasts, served in the room, were lovely. Very quiet neighborhood, with a few places to walk to for dinner. It was lovely for us to be together, and the place and hostess accommodated us very nicely.

Lovely B&B in Wellesley

4,6 sur novembre 09, 2015

The place was charming, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. Sharing a bathroom was not an issue due to a considerate other guest. The room is small, but was perfect for me as I was staying there alone. The gift card for breakfast at the nearby coffee shop/bakery was unexpected, and the food there great. A chocolate bar to welcome me to the room was a nice touch too. The location is extremely convenient for Wellesley. And the house is located in a nice quiet neighborhood, just off the Main Street. Recommended, and I'd return.

Charming Place

4,0 sur octobre 29, 2015

This place was perfect for my stay. In Wellesley for 2 nights for a meeting there, so the in-town location was ideal. The room I chose was small but more than adequate for my purpose - mainly to sleep. But I was pleasantly surprised by its charm - very tastefully decorated and furnished. And very comfortable. In a quiet residential neighborhood, yet walking distance to some restaurants on Wellesley's Main Street. Gift card for breakfast at a great coffe shop/bakery. And chocolate treats as a welcome gift - very nice touch! Would definitely recommend this place.

Like it!

Very cozy, easy to find,exceptionally convenient. Margot is sweet and accommodating. Beds were so comfortable - a must. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

The jewel of Wellesley

5 sur août 19, 2015

There were definitely great aspects about our stay, that made the experience worthwhile. Our room was incredibly clean, the food offered was delicious, the other room's tenants were as quiet as mice, the hall bathroom was luxuriously big and nice, the neighborhood is safe (just like the town, itself), the B & B is close to the main road/shops, etc. We are definitely recommending this B & B to our friends, who visit the area. Everything about the place was charming and impeccably quaint/clean. Kudos to Ms. Hampe for accommodating us, when we were visiting family in the area. Her care and kindness added to the ambience of a fun and memorable trip. So, for anyone who lands upon this site, don't waste your time wondering or considering other places. Go with the Wellesley Bed and Breakfast, and enjoy your stay! You won't be disappointed!

An inexpensive way to tour the local colleges

4,6 sur avril 23, 2015

My daughter and I stayed at the Wellesley B&B to tour local colleges. This is not an old house filled with antiques, but the upstairs of a more modern home that's been converted for guests. It is clean, with all the amenities you would expect. The room we stayed in was pretty small but big enough to hold us and our luggage, and we were out all day. We were able to walk to the commuter rail and get into Boston quickly. Our hostess was very helpful to us and friendly. This was a good place to stay for our purposes.

A very pleasant establishment

3,6 sur novembre 05, 2014

We had to make a last minute booking in the Boston area and thus had to make some tough decisions regarding the balance between cost, convenience, and comfort. The Wellesley Bed & Breakfast proved to be an inspired choice. First, it was easy to reach from the main highway. This was a big plus for me, who hates (emphasize that) driving in Boston. Second, the owner was very flexible in letting us check in early. Once she explained the rules of the place (including one about taking your shoes off), she was out of our hair. Third, the room we used was comfortable and quiet, despite the fact that the entire facility was booked. We lodged there for two nights and definitely would stay again. Note -- our friends in the area were pleased to learn that this place was in Wellesley. Apparently, there is a dearth of reputable places.

Lovely Anniversary Weekend

4,6 sur mai 02, 2014

We had a great stay in Wellesley Hills at this Bed and Breakfast! The romantic room was clean, cozy and comfortable, with wine and flowers and extra special surprise! Accepted the offer of a "continental" breakfast - which exceeded expectations! Organic juices and homemade french toast with creme and berries - served right at the requested time in our room.

My unforgettable stay in Wellesley

5 sur février 12, 2014

I spent 2 weeks in the cosy bed and breakfast of Margot, in the charming town of Wellesley. I highly recommend it because this house is very well located, with a still atmosphere during days and nights. Rooms are carefully decorated and impeccable. But most of all, Margot is a fine cooker, using only fresh and organic products.Eating my breakfast prepared by Margot,each day was an enchanting moment. I shall never forget the warm and friendly welcome of Margot and look forward coming back.

Vegan Friendly

4,6 sur octobre 14, 2013

My daughter and I are both vegan and Margot was very willing to meet our needs. Upon arrival there was a choice of almond or hemp milk for coffee. Breakfast exceeded expectations and included a fresh fruit smoothie, oatmeal with choices of almonds goji berries, flax, chia seeds, agave and maple syrup, Ezekial muffins with jam and coconut oil spread and fresh fruit. The accommodations were very comfortable and conveniently located

Great for Students

I needed a room for my high school senior who was attending one of the local colleges for the summer. I found Wellsley B&B and was delighted to have a safe, comfortable home for my student. We are doing a long term rental and it is affordable,t he innkeeper is knowledgable , and has really made this an easy experience. This is a great Inn for for any travelers!

Wonderful B&B

4,6 sur mai 18, 2012

I chose to stay here because of the great reviews it had gotten, the good price, and the location. The room had everything you could want, including a fluffy robe, something that few high-end hotels provide. The bed linens and towers were sumptuous. The bathroom had extra toiletries and towels, there was more then plenty of everything you might need. Although there were two other rooms with guests during my stay, I didn't hear a sound from anywhere. The bathroom was immaculately clean with wonderfully bright lighting. It's clear that the owners do all they can to make this place inviting and restful for their guests. I was sorry not to have met Margot, but Donnie could not have been more helpful and nice. The location was perfect, on a quiet street but only a few minutes' walk to the little "downtown" of Wellesley Hills, which has a wonderful bakery for breakfast as well as other little shops. I would recommend this B&B without qualification. Thank you to Margo and Donnie for your wonderful hospitality.

Wellesley B&B review

4,0 sur septembre 13, 2011

This is a very nice and convenient to everything B&B in Wellesley. It's only a few miles from the hospital. Our room was spacious and had it's own bathroom. Our son's room was comfortable and right next to a hallway bathroom. We were severed a full hot breakfast that included an egg quiche, fruit, toast, bagels, juice and coffee. This is an excellent option for those that want to be right in Wellesley and close to the hospital. TOB

Fabulous experience!

5 sur juin 14, 2011

I come to stay here EVERY TIME I come to visit my sister at Wellesley College. Margot the innkeeper, goes out of her way to meet my dietary needs. I feel like a family member when I come and stay at Margot's place!


5 sur juin 14, 2011

I have visited Wellesley Bed & Breakfast quite a few times in the past few years on my way through Boston. It offers everything a traveler would appreciate and need - great location, warm reception and an innkeeper who goes the extra mile, making guests feel welcome, relaxing with a feeling of home away from home. Every time I visited there was always a collection of fine chocolates in my rom PLUS fresh cut flowers from her garden during spring and summer. Location is perfect for me - the house and neighborhood are quiet, beds are comfortable and it is just a 5 minute walk from the train station. Highly recommend!!!

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Wellesley.

5 sur juin 13, 2011

“I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Wellesley.” Reviewed June 5, 2011 This past year, I spent a total of 15 days during 5 separate stays at Wellesley B & B. My daughter started college in the fall of 2010, and I wanted a place that felt homey and comfortable for my 4 years of traveling from Miami to Boston. On the first visit, I told Margot, the innkeeper that if I felt comfortable, she would have me as a guest for the full four years. I wanted to be close to the college in Wellesley and be able to get to Boston and the other shopping areas easily. Of course, I wanted to stay in a place that I could afford, and I didn't want to be exposed to strangers coming and going like I would in a hotel. From my first visit, I felt safe, comfortable and thorougly happy with the accommodations, the location, the wonderful breakfast, and the attitude and helpfulness of the owner. The price for the room was fair for the area, and as it turned out, my daughter ending up staying with me in the room while I was visiting. I was not charged extra for the extra guest, and my daughter was given breakfast and snacks at no extra charge to me. We were treated like family, and that is exactly what I was looking for. It would be impossible to feel that way at a big brand name hotel in the city. I have stayed in each one of the rooms at the B&B from the biggest to the smallest, and I have had a private bath as well as a shared bath. On my last trip, I shared the bathroom with 4 other guests, and it was not a problem at all. The linens are fresh and ample, the bathrooms are full of wonderful products for the guests to use freely, and the house is clean although a little crowded because the innkeeper is always upgrading and adding to the furnishings. Overall, a Wellesley B&B experience is a good one, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Nice Place!

4,2 sur juin 13, 2011

I was lucky to find a place to stay in Wellesley on the very busy Boston Marathon weekend. Margot knew I was taking was taking the train in from Logan and called to make sure I landed, to confirm what time I would be arriving at the B&B and to make sure I did not get lost on the few block walk from the Wellesley train station. The room and bathroom were very clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was simple, but included what I would have had if I was at home so it was perfect for me. I would definitely stay here should I make another trip to Wellesley!

Unfortunate experience at a bed and breakfast

1,0 sur mai 27, 2011

We arrived at 3:45 to check in; the innkeeper answered the door and asked, "Can't you go to dinner or something? I'm not ready yet." Our room was going to cost $217 (which she claimed cost more than the other rooms because it was very large and luxurious). We went for a run, came back at 5 and she said the same, "I'm not ready yet." Because we had come to Boston and intended to go out and eat and we told her this, she let us use a shower in the house. We came back at 9:30 p.m., and the innkeeper led us by wind-up flashlight through an unkempt backyard to a door off the back of the house. This is when we realized she was renting us her personal bedroom. There were sheets covering her personal items and mattresses (!) that towered to the ceiling and the sheer amount of stuff made it very difficult to just walk through the room. She told us to "adjust the bed" - which was an air mattress. My husband got upset and she told us we could leave and she would give our money back if we wanted to leave. Then she asked us when we were going to be taking our shower because she needed to take a shower before bed and her shower would take a half an hour. By the time we got to breakfast, we didn't expect much. And getting Lenders-like bagels was what we got, no home-made breakfast. Needless to say, the stay was surprising.

Réponse du propriétaire
This room was not ready because it was NEVER confirmed. The guest was reminded a week prior to her requested check-in date that her check and gift certificate had not arrived and there was NO CONFIRMED reservation. Still neither a payment nor a deposit was provided to secure the room. I believed the guest had changed her plans. I was surprised to see her at my door. Sold out, sold out, sold out - was what every lodging place in the area including myself was telling prospective guests for months before the busiest weekend of the year, the Boston Marathon. Because this guest was traveling with a toddler – it touched my heart, so I offered her family my private bedroom, which in the future will NOT be offered again under any circumstances. The description in advance included: entrance from rear of home, shared bath and plans to set aside my twin bed, setting up a sleep sofa with a high end Aero air mattress for extra comfort and covering my personal belongings with a coverlet to keep my things separated from the toddler. In order to accommodate the surprise guest, I needed time to prepare and clean the room. Several hours prior to the customary 4 pm check-in time, she requested and was provided use of a shower and storage of their luggage. Upon viewing the room, the guests requested a FREE night’s stay. I suggested that they leave at that time if they did not want to be charged for lodging even though I had provided the services of a shower and storage of luggage earlier that afternoon. In an effort to please the guest I offered a discounted rate because of the “late check-in status” (even though services started well before normal check-in time) and they agreed and chose to stay. In the morning the guests enjoyed breakfast, and without a prior reservation, they were served from the unlimited buffet style continental breakfast that the Marathon runners had chosen at the time of their confirmed reservations which included freshly baked bagels, delicious cranberry covered goat cheese, cream cheese, jams, organic peanut butter, unsweetened organic soy milk, coffee/tea made with filtered water, organic half and half cream, orange juice and bananas. Once again I was surprised when Mr. and Mrs. Guest left without leaving any payment. This begs the question; did these people PLAN to make up false stories in order to cover up the reality of them skipping out on their bill? The following month, after the guest’s departure, I was able to receive a partial payment for lodging from the Bed and Breakfast gift certificate company after explaining the situation at hand. One unfortunate situation does not compare to the joys of thousands of great experiences that makes my business very rewarding. The highlight of Wellesley Bed and Breakfast is seeing repeat visitors (approximately 30 percent) and meeting new guests.

Excellent services and a very convenient location

5 sur avril 13, 2011

I stayed at Wellesely Bed and Breakfast for more than two weeks and I am absolutely satisfied. It is an only bed and breakfast in the town of Wellesley. The inn keeper's breakfast menu is superb, always hot and just fresh out of oven or stove, and organic, too. She would go extra miles to meet every guest's needs. It is just like staying in your own home. The location is ideal. It is so quiet and located in a residential area, but I could walk to the Whole Food Market, restaurants, post office, banks, bakery, ice cream shop. And a commuter train stop is just minutes away, which takes you to the heart of Boston in less than 30 minutes. If anyone is planning to visit Wellesley or the Boston area and doesn't like staying in indifferent corporate hotels, this can be an ideal place to stay!!

A real experience

3,8 sur mars 22, 2011

In the end of February we stayed at Wellesleys Bed and Breakfast for a week. Margo took very well care of us. We got a nice room, great food and helpful advice and help to find interesting activities. It was easy to take the train in to Boston and because we stayed for a whole week Margo helped us to get discount entry to museums and other sights. Thank you Margo for a very pleasant stay.

Mixed Feelings

2,6 sur novembre 07, 2010

Margot the inkeeper was very sweet and provided a wonderful breakfast,as well as a very clean and comfortable room for myself and my family. I just felt the B & B as a whole was a little unkept, the outside was messy with old airconditioners and garbage cans laying around and over grown landscaping. When we arrived in the evening after dinner, there were no welcome lights on, just a small blinking led light which was very weak and we had trouble seeing where we were going. Although Margot did provide us with a flashlight it still would have been nice to have an outside entry light. There were no common spaces for guests which was a little disappointing, I felt like we were trapped in our "bedroom". Margot did her best to accommodated me and my family of four. As stated above she provided us with a lovely breakfast and neat and clean accommodations. Overall it is in a very good location, and we appreciate her hospitality.

Réponse du propriétaire
I appreciate the feedback. Foliage season is wrapping up in New England, a major draw in this area, with many trees that still have leaves and many leaves continually falling to the ground. The barrels were outside because I am continually picking up the leaves and trucks need to pick them up regularly. The gardens are amazing in "season" and a professional garden designer tends to my gardens. We just recently experienced frost during recent nights and many of the remaining blooming plants got frost bite, to be expected as winter approaches. Professional gardeners know which plants can be trimmed and which cannot to assure future blooms. The window unit air conditioners next to the garage were removed from the rooms and scheduled to be relocated into storage. The street does not have lights, so my walkways and driveway are lined with more than 30 solar lights. If you drive up to the garage, and then position your vehicle into a parking spot, motion detectors light up the driveway with flood lights. On dark rainy days, the solar lights are a bit dimmer than on a sunny day. The front door lights are also on motion detectors rather than steady "on" position to avoid moths from flocking near lights and entering the home. We do welcome children over 12, and children under 12 require prior agreement; this guest asked before bringing her children but I agree that perhaps families with young children consider this before they stay. I thank you again for your helpful criticisms that allow us the opportunity to improve our service!

This is the first time I came to US. I have never expected to live in a room with such warm furnishings. The inkeeper is so nice and paying so much attention to the healthiness of life.

I'm a LA based producer and travel all over the world for business and pleasure and to my surprise, one of my most favorite bed and breakfasts is in the darling town of Wellesley, MA. I am just completing my second stay at the Wellesley Bed and Breakfast and I cannot say enough about every aspect of this exceptional destination. From cleanliness to comfort...outstanding. Margot Hampe, the owner, is the warmest, most generous and caring innkeeper--she went out of her way and beyond to meet my needs and make certain my stay was relaxed, comfortable and homey. She is the perfect host and knows exactly how to balance caring for you and leaving you to your privacy. The rooms are so sweet, clean and super comfortable. And the breakfasts always include organic ingredients, yummy coffee or whatever it is you would prefer. And the icing on the cake--its quite affordable!!!! I will continue to make this my "home away from home" when I come east. I highly recommend it to anyone in or around the area.

Absolutely Lovely!

My husband and i recently stayed at wellesley bed and breakfast and i must say that this was one of the best bed and breakfast places i have been! The inn keeper Margot was very hospitable and served us with the most delicious organic treats for breakfast! We were served restaraunt style on the most gorgeous china in a cozy dining room. Our room was one of the larger rooms, decorated beautifully and we were treated with a personal coffee maker and gourmet coffee as well as delicious marzipan chocolates! The inn keeper made us feel very comfortable like we were at home, she helped us navigate through wellesley and recommended some great places to dine at and some great scenic trails to walk on. I will definately be staying here when i pass through the boston area in the future!

Great B&B!

Hello, I found this bed&breakfast very comfortable, neat, clean and the innkeeper Margot is a gentle and available person. Very good breakfast, with everything you would dream. If I will come back to Boston I will surely return to this B&B. Advisable to everyone! Valerio, Trento, Italy

Delightful, Homey B&B

I loved my room (the mid-sized one) -- spacious, with well-coordinated decor that was not over the top so it felt very livable. Great mattress & pillows; I slept very well. Margot supplies all-natural shampoo, conditioner & body wash which was a treat too. Breakfast was elaborate & featured fresh fruits and spreads. I was there for an extended stay of 3 weeks and Margot made every effort to accommodate my particular needs.

Nice accomodation, though only dining room except of the livign room is allowed for guests. Room wasvery nice,clean and speacy. Unfortunatelyfor the B&B and it's great host Margot, the surroundings are extremelly boring, completely dead after 8 p.m. and bear on mind that Wellesly and the surrounding towns are dry towns,so forget all about sipping a glass of wine after the dinner having goodtime in the bar unless you want to eat yourself to death becasue that's the only way you can get a glass of wine or a beer! Welleslyis not the town for B&B becasue it offers close to nothing.

Thank you for your great observation. Wish you had asked me a few questions during your stay. The nearest liquor store is less than 2 miles East of Wellesley Bed and Breakfast. The nearest lounge areas or bar areas in Wellesley are less than 2 miles in either direction, which do require ordering at least an appetizer to share. My favorite restaurant, the Blue Ginger offers indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) dining and has a full liquor license, less than 2 miles from my B & B, formerly written up by the Boston Magazine featuring Chef Ming. It is wise to call a restaurant to inquire if they have a liquor license. If not, most restaurants allow you to bring your own wine. There is so much to do here, many details provided in my Welcome Letter which is available upon request by email and left in every room. The dining room has a collection of flyers for a vast amount of local attraction options. The train is only 2 blocks from my B & B and is a short 25 minute ride into Boston, one of the biggest cities in Massachusetts. Guests enjoy taking the train to avoid the expense of parking downtown. Within one to two blocks of my B & B are restaurants including Thai, Japanese, Italian, Greek, American, Pizza, Brighams Ice Cream, Bakery and Whole Foods Market with ready to eat prepared meals to go. Guests have enjoyed Whale Watching, Newport Mansions, JFK Library, Duck Tour, Museum of Fine Arts, Science Museum, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Omni theater, Waterfire Providence, visiting multicultural Cambridge, shopping in Concord, Lexington or Newbury Street in Boston, New England Aquarium, Harvard Museum of Natural History, Skywalk Observatory at Prudential Center, and more.

A Comfortable Stay

My first Bed and Breakfast experience was memorable and enjoyable. I loved the "homey" feeling instead of staying at a hotel which aren't always the cleanest or most cozy. The innkeeper tries hard to cater to your needs and give you a comfortable stay. We got a free upgrade and although the room was the smallest, it was cute and comfortable and connected to the bathroom. The breakfasts were different than what I may be used to, but still delicious and all organic with fresh fruits every morning and a variety of breads and jams. The innkeeper went out of her way to help us with places to visit and sights to see.

comfortable, cozy B&B

I had a delightful 1-week stay. The owner goes to every effort to ensure your comfort. I was able to easily explore a new city, and still felt like I was "coming home" every night. I strongly encourage guests to take advantage of the breakfast offerings. Fruit and dairy were fresh from the market just around the corner each morning. And if you're feeling sociable, the owner will happily join you for a cup of tea.
