  • Large house, big dining room table, secluded upscale location, very nice owners

    "We had 12-15 people and it was nice to have everyone together. The house is in pretty good condition on the inside, looks like it could use some touching up on the exterior, but that didn't bother us. I met both of the owners (husband and wife) and they were very helpful for anything we asked. I would stay here again. The main floor has 3 bedrooms: 1) two queen beds, 2) two queen beds, 3) one queen bed. The 'basement' has 2 bedrooms: 4) one full size and one twin bed, 5) one queen bed - semi private as it has louvered doors on one side. I think we had 2 rollabeds. All 3 main floor bedrooms had sliding glass doors that open to the dining room - odd for a house, but this was or can be used for meetings. It wasn't a problem. Plenty of parking next to the house. The deck was pretty large and nice to watch the ocean and stuff. Plenty of seating for casual hanging out. All of the furnishings were pretty good - none was unacceptable."

  • GREAT location!

    "We were intrigued to see the house - friends were calling us crazy to stay there due to the width of the house not even at 10 feet. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious it was inside and how comfortable all the areas were. It was an awesome location just down the street from North Church and blocks away from really great food! We were there with our daughter and son-in-law and found it to work out great for our needs. Everything was supplied that is needed - the house was clean and the beds were comfortable. We loved it when people were outside and looking up at the house and we were looking out from the inside! It's a great rental and we highly suggest it. Spencer was awesome in his communications and was very prompt in his responses. Highlight of our trip to Boston! Cheers for the Skinny "spite" House! P.S. Loved reading the history in the helpful binder that the owners leave there - great information!!"

  • Beacon Hill's Finest

    "I stayed in this apartment for 6 weeks while working in Boston. I give it my highest recommendation. I have rented 2 other Beacon Hill apartments off VRBO during my travels, but this one, hands down is my favorite. It is clean, comfortable, and has everything you might need for an all inclusive rental. The location couldn't be better, it's safe and close to tons of restaurant's, and Whole Foods is a short walk away. And to top it off, literally, is that incredible rooftop deck. The view is great, perfect for coffee or happy hour, and as inviting as it is, I had the place to myself 95% of the time. Iwona, the owner couldn't be nicer nor a better hostess. She met me there with the keys, and was available by phone anytime I had a question. Beacon Hill is a great, historic area, and this is the only place I want to stay when I go back again. Thanks Iwona."

    "My wife & I celebrated our 25th in the Salon Beacon hill residents. The salon was a perfect location and comfortably suited for a romantic weekend for two The Owners are a pleasure to deal with and the Salon is a very peaceful, but city center hide away. We loved our stay in Beacon Hill and will cherish the memory. Caution, you won’t want to end your Boston vacation  Thanks D&A"

Boston Travel Tips

Boston is full of history, perfectly situated on the East Coast and offers several sights the entire family will enjoy. From baseball games at Fenway Park to tours of the city where Revolutionary War soldiers once walked, you'll learn a lot while having fun.

Boston is one of America's oldest cities. It's beginnings date back to 1630, and Boston was a cradle of the American Revolution as Colonists fought to break away from British rule. With so much to offer vacationers, it's no surprise that Boston welcomes in millions of visitors this each year.

Boston Attractions

While visiting Boston, stop by the Tea Party Ships and Museum. You'll also get to see a live theatrical performance of a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party and an original 1773 tea crate from the most important event leading up to The American Revolution. Visitors can check out the Meeting House and hear the story of the night before the Boston Tea Party as well as first-hand accounts of the patriots who organized it. The museum also includes Griffin's Wharf, a 3D holographic experience taking you back to the streets of Boston in 1773. The kids will feel like patriots as they board restored tea party ships Eleanor and Beaver. For a truly unique look at history, don't leave without seeing the one of the oldest Boston artifacts, the Robinson Half Chest, which is one of only two known tea chests from the Boston Tea Party.

One of the most well-known attractions in this New England city is Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox. "America's Most Beloved Ballpark" offers tours and the chance to see where some of baseball's traditions originated. During a tour you'll view Pesky's Pole up close and even purchase tickets for a seat atop the Green Monster, a 37-foot tall wall in left field.

Take a break from sightseeing and enjoy lunch at the Boston Esplanade. This park sits alongside the Charles River and offers a pathway for walkers and cyclists as well as breathtaking views of the skyline. There are free concerts and public festivals throughout the summer months and the Esplanade is the perfect place for a picnic with the family.

For a more modern take on Boston, head to the Institute of Contemporary Art. This structure houses an eclectic mix of modern art and fun displays to spark your inner creativity. The museum was initially founded in 1936 as the Boston Museum of Modern Art.

You can get a picturesque view of Boston when you head to HarborWalk. This attraction is located on the waterfront and meanders through several neighborhoods such as Chelsea, North End, Downtown and Dorchester, giving you an inside look Boston's local life. This open space is home to several restaurants and is considered one of the city's best spots to visit.
