Property description

PICTURESQUE BEACON HILL, BOSTON'S HISTORIC CENTER! This 1,100 square foot, 3 bedroom condominium in the heart of Beacon Hill is perfectly situated for those wishing to enjoy the best of Boston. Occupying the 3rd and 4th floors of a small 19th century building, the recently renovated condo offers charm and comfort. High ceilings, wood floors throughout and lots of light from the many windows are the setting for an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture, plenty of books and art.
Please note there is no elevator, so it is two flights of stairs up from street level, and another flight of stairs in the condo from the main floor (living room, dining room, kitchen) to the bedrooms. There is an additional steep flight of stairs up to the roofdeck.

YOU WON'T NEED A CAR! Step out of the condo and you will find a day spa and yoga studio at street level. Walk to everything! One short block to Charles Street, with its cafes, boutiques, antique galleries and restaurants. Two blocks to the Public Garden, or to the Boston Common. Enjoy the Swan Boats in the summer, or walk to skating on Frog Pond in winter. Stroll down to the Esplanade and go for a run along the Charles River for a great view of the Boston skyline.


Boston's excellent subway system is just minutes away. Only 3 stops on the Red Line and you are in Harvard Square, or catch the Green Line to the MFA. In the summer, you will enjoy the comfort of central air conditioning and the views from the private roof deck. The small, but nicely fitted kitchen has everything for those who like to cook, including 2 ovens. In the marble-tiled bathroom, we replaced the bathtub with a large glass-enclosed shower with a bench and a rain-shower head. The 2 larger bedrooms have new queen mattresses, and the smaller bedroom has one twin bed.

Enjoying the great vacation rental in Beacon Hill area of Boston, Massachusetts 10/13/2010

VRBO Bear stayed here:


This week I lived among the locals in Boston’s revered Beacon Hill neighborhood. This gorgeous 3 bedroom apartment is located seconds from the corner of Charles and Beacon Streets. This very comfortable home had everything I needed. Three levels up, I marveled at the absence of street noise while enjoying the local flavor. The roof top deck is an ideal spot to enjoy a morning coffee, local pastries and take in the view. The home is artfully decorated. The beds are quite comfortable and the bathroom lovely and spacious with a fabulous shower. The modern kitchen had everything we needed.

My companions needed no car at all. Everything is truly within a few minutes walk. I strolled down streets and soaked up the culture. I chatted with locals, had croissants at a local bakery, shopped "The Hill" and grabbed some groceries at Savenor's Market - a Julia Child favorite. There is a wonderful day spa a few steps from the apartment, Boston Common is a block away, and a variety of great dining choices abound!

This apartment is also very close to any type of public transportation we needed to go out and tour all the many parts of this fantastic historical city. If you do bring a car, a public parking garage is just a block away under Boston Common. Take a tour of the city, walk the neighborhoods, visit the museums, and experience the fabulous history of America's birthplace! Boston is a city for all seasons and this Beacon Hill apartment is a wonderful home away from home.
