"Love this great apartment! It was very clean and comfortable, and would definitely stay here again. I was visiting Boston with my daughter to look at several different colleges. The location was perfect! It is in the center of all of the action - close to a grocery store, Fenway, restaurants and a brand new Target. We easily walked to a few schools, and then used Uber to get to locations that we were tight on time. The apartment has ample space and a lot of natural light. Although we didn't cook, the kitchen seemed well equipped. This is the place to stay if you want to feel like a real Bostonian!"

"What a fantastic place to stay. The apartment had everything you require, it was also clean and in a perfect location. Air con was a major plus point as the weather was hot. The patio area was a great place to have a early morning coffee and a nightcap. Carolyn and Bill were awesome hosts, a really nice couple. They even let us take some of their old vinyl back home. If this apartment is available, don't hesitate to book it, you won't regret it.

"This was my first time in Boston, and I had no idea what part of town or where to stay. Once I decided on the north part of Boston, I carefully researched places to stay. I ended up finding the Skinny House. And, oh what a find! It's an excellent place to stay. Perfect part of town, perfect location. The house itself is comfortable, inviting, and quite charming. If you're challenged by stairs, this might not be the best location. I had no trouble with them. It's on the Freedom Trail, across the street from Copp's Burial Ground. When people are on tours, they frequently stop in front of the house to look and take pictures. Don't be freaked out if this happens! It's really quite fun. The house is just up the street from the old North Church, and the "little Italy" part of Boston, all within walking distance. A great Italian restaurant is Antico Forno. Best pizza! The "Going Bananas" grocery story, down Hull Street, then a right at Salem, carries many things. A tad bit pricey though.
Overall, I would stay at the Skinny House again. It's a very fun place to stay, and Spencer is very easy to communicate with. Oh, and the house manager, Olivia, is delightful. She stopped in after we'd been there a couple of days to check in with us to see if everything was okay.

"The apartment was perfect. It is conveniently located to the T. There is no need for a car. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. Located right next to the State House. The owner has provided everything you need for a very comfortable stay. He even called to make sure everything was ok ."
