  • Perfect apartment, perfect location

    "This is an excellent apartment in an absolutely perfect location. My family of four came to Boston when I ran the marathon. This apartment was a five minute walk to the expo and maybe fifteen minute walk to the finish line. My family was able to easily walk to the Mile 25 marker to see me. Marathon aside, the apartment is spacious enough for two adults and two small children. The kids shared the pull-out couch in the living room. There's a Trader Joe's within a 5-10 minute walk, as well as a corner market. It's a short walk to the many shops and restaurants and cafes on Newbury and Boylston Streets, as well as the Green Line for the train. The Charles River is one block away, with gorgeous views and a long running/walking trail. There's a huge playground within walking distance on this path as well. The owners of the apartment have a huge list of local restaurants and helpful tips. The bedroom, and apartment itself, can be a little noisy. The building, while gorgeous, is older and has multiple residences. The normal sounds of people coming and going, as well as the alleyway behind the apartment, can be heard. Everything you might need for easy meals is in the apartment, with the exception of a toaster! We visited the Children's Museum, the Aquarium, the Science Museum and did a Duck Boat Tour, all within a short train or cab ride. We highly recommend this property!"

  • Perfect location for a ramble around Boston by subway!

    "The Fort Hill Inn was the perfect home base for rocketing around Boston for two chilly January days! It was cozy and picturesque. The room we had with double bed and private bath was not at all too small. The tub was deep and claw footed (as well as a shower). There was a microwave and mini fridge as well as coffee and tea making supplies. Every thing was clean and well stocked. The personal touches made it feel like we were staying at a friend's house. Just the opposite of a boring blah hotel room! Climbing the very steep staircase felt like climbing into a piece of history. It is close to the subway and restaurants within walking distance. Might be a bit of a walk for some, but we loved getting a feel for the neighborhood on foot. There didn't seem to be a grocery type store close at hand, just a convenience store (which didn't sell beer or wine) wasn't a big issue for us and we didn't ask Terry but he may have known of one. All in all it was just a lovely place to stay. Thanks Terry!"

  • Hidden gem in the "Southy"!

    "We were in town for my daughters graduation. Donna was such a wonderful hostess! She met us at check in, helped us with the luggage, gave us a tour of the apartment and was available for any questions or directions during our stay. There were up to 6 of us a few nights and we were very comfortable in the clean, generous space of the third floor Victorian. The beds are so comfortable and the rooms big enough we weren't tripping over each other. The living room has games and movies of all kinds and satellite TV. Large bathroom, plenty of towels and a hair dryer. Separate heating and cooling, yes we used the AC in early May...yay Boston weather! The location of this apt is so convenient. The bus is two doors down and stops about every 10 mins, (there is a real time app you can get on your phone so you don't have to wait) , 1 mile easy walk to the T, a mile and a half to the beach and Fort. Lots of historical sites in south Boston to visit and Donna has a huge binder with lots of info kept in the kitchen. The kitchen was perfect for our needs and we cooked daily. There are great places to eat within walking distance. My favorite in Southy was Lincoln's for an amazing burger. No guilt indulging in your favorite food and beverages when you know you'll work it off climbing the 55 stairs up to the apartment! "Vertical Living" Donna called it. Lol. The neighborhood was nice, safe, friendly neighbors and shop owners. My kids want to move there, I can't wait to go back! Donna and Max and their daughter couldn't have been nicer! This was such a great choice I'm glad I found it."

Greater Boston Travel Tips

Traveling to Boston Vacation Rentals

Boston is a vibrant city and at the heart of America's cultural and historical heritage. There are so many things to see and do in the city that visitors are really spoiled for choice. The beautiful buildings, gardens, museums, art galleries, shops and restaurants provide hours of sightseeing and entertainment.

Boston Logan Airport serves both regional and international airlines. It is one of the country's busiest airports; a huge benefit is that it is conveniently located near the city center. From the airport, you can take a shuttle bus which will connect you with Boston's subway. From there, you can get to just about anywhere in the city. There is also a water shuttle that runs between Logan airport and Rowe's Wharf on Atlantic Avenue in Boston. Taxis and limousines offer private transfers to any point within the city. Amtrak has an extensive rail network connecting Boston with New York and other major towns and cities in the New England area. Scheduled ferries run between Boston and Provincetown, Salem, Hingham, Hull and Quincy. When sightseeing in the city, most people prefer to walk or use the subway stations. Cycling is also a convenient way to get around.

Visitors to Boston

Boston is a beautiful city, home to numerous prestigious universities, museums and art centers. It's often referred to as a city of intellectuals because of the rich heritage of higher learning and culture. People with a keen interest in history, art and culture will find Boston fascinating. You can spend hours browsing through the various museum exhibits, art galleries and libraries. It's a place where you can feast your mind on a rich and diverse range of subject matters. Boston is also a very stylish city; the restaurants, shops and many boutiques attest to this. While it's not really the place for bargain hunting, if you like to move in society's upper circles then you will feel right at home in the up-market malls and venues. Boston is also a great place to visit with the family. So much of America's history is tied up in this city and being able to visit historic places with your kids will help bring alive what they have learned in class. There is a dedicated children's museum that has interactive and interesting displays and exhibits that is a must-see if travelling with kids.

Leading Museums Near Boston Apartments

The Boston Museum of Fine Arts is reputed to be one of the greatest art collections worldwide. They have more Monet's than any other museum outside of Paris. The MIT Science Museum has some fascinating exhibits and is well worth visiting. The Boston Children's Museum has consistently, for over 95 years, provided interesting, informative and interactive exhibits that provide children the opportunity to learn interesting facts in a fun way. The John F. Kennedy Library and Museum takes an in-depth look at the life of the famous president during his 1,000 days in office.

Types of Boston Vacation Homes

The types of rentals available in Boston range from stylish brownstone houses and up-market apartments to comfortable houseboats. Many of the rentals allow for shorter stays so if you can only stay for a limited amount of time, you can still benefit from the more affordable rates. Other benefits include being able to be closer to the major sites without having to break the bank and having a greater degree of flexibility in terms of coming and going and meal times. Most likely, you'll be out all day sightseeing and coming back to a spacious apartment or houseboat is far more enjoyable than being confined to a single room or having to share a lounge with hundreds of other hotel guests.
