Awesome stay at the Skinny House!
"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.

"We stayed for 4 night in the heart of Cambridge, just a sort ride to downtown off the red line and a quick walk to Harvard Square. The place was spacious and easy to find. If I have any suggestion it would be to install ceiling fans in the front room and the kitchens to help circulate air, otherwise a first rate experience."

"The apartment is convenient to many shops, restaurants, nightlife and the T - all are within walking distance. Yet it's in a residential area and it's quiet.
We had six adults visiting Boston and the apartment was very comfortable for all of us.
The owner is responsive, easy to work with and accommodating."

"We just came back from Boston and rented the Beacon Hill studio. Location is amazing. Apartment is really cute and the bed really comfortable. Nicely outfitted. Bathtub a bit dated but TONS of hot water and great water pressure. Michelle is incredibly responsive and looking out for her renters. Would definitely rent from her again!"
