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 enjoyed staying in a brownstone. Up one flight of stairs, plus the entrance steps, the apartment has good, functioning facilities and quite adequate storage space. Good shower and bed. Temperature was an issue for us since the building’s heating was not yet on. There are some shops and restaurants close by, but the supermarkets are about 15 minutes walk away. Bus 43 runs past the front door, but don’t trust it – the subway is 10 minutes away and is more reliable. We were met punctually and introduced to the apartment by the owner’s agent."

"The place was a very pleasant surprise. Everything you need the owners very helpful, and an awsome location. 5 min walk to subway, 1 stop from airport or downtown Boston. Neighbor hood has good food choices, very nice waterfront park basically out the door, and the views from the deck of water and Boston amazing."

"The location of this comfortable condo just couldn't get any better. The Boston Common and picturesque public garden are just across the street as are the hop on hop off trolleys, tourist info, and the start of the Freedom Trail. Much of historic Boston is a short walk in one direction: Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library are a short walk in the opposite direction. There is also no shortage of fine restaurants, bakeries and drinking holes in the area and we had some very good food at restaurants just minutes away (Grotto was particularly memorable).
The condo itself is well appointed and comfortable and Peter was easy to contact and showed us around the condo personally. We were delighted with our stay and would recommend it to others."
