"Located in the heart of Boston (Beacon Hill), steps away from MGH, Mass Eye & Ear, downtown and everything else in Boston city centre. The host was nice, replied quickly, and the check-in/check-out was hastle-free. The apt was small, but included everything we needed."

"Our stay coincided with Fall and Halloween and it was a charming, delightful and lovely apartment to stay in for our few precious days in Cambridge visiting our son.
Set in a lovely street so close to Harvard Square we could walk to breakfast at Crema Coffee and then back through the Yard to the Gallery every morning along leafy streets lined with colourful boarded houses.
Plenty of room for two with parking at the rear in a period property of simple but elegant charm. Yes we awoke every morning to the enthusiastic patter of tiny feet and heavier parents above but with jet lag running our time clocks it didn't really matter though to others it might.
Well situated for both Cambridge and central Boston this was a great apartment which we would definitely choose again."

"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.
