About the Property
Apartment, 1 bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
There are many incredible restaurants within minutes by foot. Whole Foods is 2 blocks away - you can cook or pick up excellent healthy prepared foods if you just want to stay home and watch a movie.
Architectural designer/Owner has painstakingly considered every detail to make staying here a memorable and unique experience. Brand new bathroom was renovated winter 2017. Every apartment surface has been scrubbed and painted recently. This lovely 2nd Fl studio was the formal parlor for 1800s Brownstone. All new appliances including Miele dishwasher. Fully equipped kitchen. Quality linens and towels. Romantic curtained-off bedroom nook. Fresh, cozy and comfortable.
Directly behind the State House, within blocks of the Freedom and Black Heritage Trails. Skirt the State house and you're at the Boston Commons. Walk through the Commons and the Boston Gardens and you're strolling down Boston's own Champs Elysees, Newbury Street. 10 minute walk to the historic North End, the Aquarium and more shopping and dining at Faneuil Hall. Truly in the center of everything. Red, blue and green 'T' subway stops are all within a 5-10 minute walk.

About the owner: We are an architectural designer and social services counselor who live and work on Nantucket Island. In our spare time, we like to create 'homes away from home' and share them with friends and renting guests. We actually take a lot of pleasure anticipating one's every need in order to make each environment exceedingly comfortable and tasteful. Our children find it annoying to go to restaurants or hotels with us because we constantly deconstruct the design and reconstruct an ambiance that we would enjoy being in. An intimate, calm and comfortable ambiance is the key component to our success. We have no doubt you will feel that way in the spaces we have created on Beacon Hill. We have another apartment on Charles St. as well.
Why the Owner Chose Beacon Hill, Boston, MA, USA:
Location, Location, Location! It's in historic Beacon Hill which is safe and has a great neighborhood feel. It's within walking distance of all the Boston must-see sites.
