This 3 bedroom apartment is on top of an elegant Bed and Breakfast called Taylor House near scenic Jamaica Pond in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston. You have a 'kitchenette' with sink, fridge, and microwave for the privacy of your party. You can see views of the neighborhood from the cupola that tops the house and is accessible only through your suite. Many fine restaurants, shops and public transportation are in walking distance. Free off-street parking is also available if needed, but Boston is a very walkable city. If we appear full for your time period, we also have a Bed and Breakfast at TaylorHouse.com with many other options.
Any forgotten amenities provided (toothbrush, toothpaste, hair and shaving products). ...moreless
This is an old Victorian House, so not every door closes perfectly, the staircase to the third floor is narrow, but has a railing. If you are looking for pristine and easy accessibility then a hotel may be a better choice. This is our home and comfortable, not stylized. It is also part of our bed and breakfast on the floor below so this is not a separate entity where you are on your own. There are other guests to consider and we ask people to be considerate of noise especially when coming and going....moreless

Dave & Daryl have made our stay wonderful and memorable. The location, amenities are good. It's quiet and enjoyable.
Dave is very helpful - provides all details and maps for us, while breakfast prepared by Daryl is awesome! I look forward to the breakfast every morning.
Thanks to both for being a wonderful host!

The Taylor House exceeded our expectations. We had never been to Boston before and were coming in to run the Boston Marathon, so we were a little leery about being so far out and a little leery about how the 3 bedroom suite was laid out, but it worked out perfectly! The 3 bedroom suite is at the top of the house, so it is totally private and the living room is perfect for a private gathering place just for the 3 bedroom suite. If you don't have a car, the walk to the train station isn't too bad, but if you have a bunch of luggage, it may be burdensome. But there is also the bus station which is much closer and the schedule for it works out about as well as the train schedule. If you haven't been to Boston, check out the MTBA (public transit) and you'll find the schedules make staying at the Taylor House easy if you don't have a car. There are a number of shops and places to eat within walking distance. Nothing too fancy, but decent places to eat. The breakfasts were outstanding and Dave is an amazing host. I highly recommend staying at the Taylor House.
