Boston house description

We've been renting high-quality furnished accommodations for over 6 years, exclusively in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. 'The Federal Rose' location is stellar, just 3 minutes walking distance to Boston Common, the Freedom Trail, an organic grocery store, a wine shop and many more conveniences and Boston attractions. Please note that our pricing is NET and includes all taxes, cleaning charges and payment fees.

Welcome to an antique house from 1815 in the heart of Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood. This small house has a very comfortable charm while incorporating modern conveniences. Previous owners from the very earliest years opened their home to boarders and we continue the tradition to allow guests the fun of staying in such an historic location.

** Some of the photos for this listing are a bit dated and considerable improvements have been done. **

Just 2 minute walk to the Massachusetts State House, Freedom Trail, Boston Common and an urban Whole Foods grocer; an 8 minute walk to three subway 'T' lines and Charles Street's boutique shops and fine dining. 15 minute walk you will reach Faneuil Hall, Newbury Street, the North End, Theatre District and TD Garden for events.

This is a private house with exclusive use. The 1st floor includes the kitchen, dining and living room. The kitchen is very well-appointed with all high-end gas stove/oven, refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher. The dining room seats 6 and the living room is comfortable and includes the television.

The 2nd floor has the bedroom with eco-friendly linens, a very comfortable high-end mattress and organic down pillows. Very ample closet and storage space. The bathroom is all brand new with a tub/shower. The first bedroom is a proper bedroom with queen bed.

There is a large brand new roof deck on the top floor with very plush outdoor sofas.

HDTV (w/ standard HD cable (CNN, CNBC, etc), DVD/CD player (w/ DVDs), wireless internet, central air-conditioning, telephone with free local and U.S. long-distance

Bed linens are eco-certified and cleaning agents, paper supplies and soaps/shampoos are earth-friendly whenever possible. We recycle. Cloth shopping totes are hanging in the closet and the electricity is purchased from wind farms. Gas heating with zones and wireless monitors to minimize energy waste.

No parking (ask), sleeps 2+1. Very easy access from the street. Includes all utilities and furnishings. The owner has written a very detailed manual for the home and for all services and restaurants in the neighborhood.

Note: Beacon Hill is on a hill in the historic urban center, so there is a fair amount of walking. This is an old house and all the stairs are original -- steep and narrow, so just be careful. It is also a vertical property, so between the basement (washer/dryer) and the roof deck there are 5 floors in total and the stair-climbing may not be suitable for all guests.
