"This apartment is in a lovely 120 year old building just across from Boston Common and beside the State House and very near a T~ station. It is very tastefully furnished and has ample utensils, towels, linens, toiletries etc provided by the owner. It felt very safe as there is a concierge in the main lobby There is a wonderful roof terrace which is magical at sunset with an amazing view of boston as far as the Charles river.. We were very pleased indeed with all aspects of our stay of five nights. We were in Boston for our son's wedding. The owner was very helpful, spoke to us on the phone and called to see us and assist us with our luggage on the day we left for the Airport. We felt very lucky to have had the opportunity to stay in his lovely apartment and it added to our enjoyment of the beautiful city of Boston."

"We had a great time visiting Boston. The Skinny House was a fun location. Lots of tourists stopping by to see the house. We actually gave a couple of tours to folks who wanted to check it out. Now here's the skinny on the Skinny House: if you are elderly, have bad knees or are generally out of shape, this might not be the place for you. It is four story house and the master bedroom is on the 4th floor. Bathroom/Living room is on the second. So if you have to get up at night to use the BR, it is an interesting walk down a 19th century spiral staircase to the 3rd floor and then a normal stairwell to the 2nd floor. We figured out, after lugging two 50 lb suitcases to the 4th floor master BR, we should have just left our clothes and suitcases on the 2nd floor where the washing machine and bath are located. We learned to plan all trips up and down the stairs carefully. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is great with a great view of Copps Burying Grounds. Lots of people-watching as tour groups come walking down the Freedom Trail. It is a convenient location to groceries, bakeries and restaurants. It is a little bit of a hike home from the North End subway stop. Remember, the house on the only hill they didn't bulldoze down to make more land. So you go up up up when walking back to the house. With all that being said, I would stay here again. It is was a fun place to stay in a great historic district."

"Had a nice one night stay on the Golden Slipper. Gretchen is friendly, had good communication with us and was super flexible about our uncertain arrival time. The location was super, so near to the north end with all those tasty restaurants. It was even handy to Logan, we called the Water Taxi and they picked us up from the dock (but allow 20-30 min. of 'slush time' since you have to take the free shuttle bus to actually get to the terminals.).
Staying on the boat was comfy, beds good and nice little deck on the aft for an evening cocktail and breakfast. The fridge even had a few breakfast goodies. There's a Starbucks and well stocked (but expensive) grocer within a 5 min. walk. Would definitely consider staying there again."
