Photos and Description of this Beacon Hill holiday condo

1 bedroom apartment in Boston's best neighborhood

Steps from the Boston Common and Public Garden, Freedom Trail, the Charles River, and the gold-domed State House, this charming 1 bedroom condo comfortably sleeps 4. Very close by are Faneuil Hall, the Esplanade, Mass General Hospital, the North End, Boston Garden, Newbury Street and Back Bay. And virtually all of Boston is easily accessible via the two nearby subway lines, including Harvard and Harvard Square, MIT, Fenway Park, Boston University, the South End and the Seaport District.

Our condo is a very private garden level unit with its own entrance. It has a fully equipped kitchen including a microwave, dishwasher and disposal; a living room with a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable; high-speed wifi. The bathroom has a tub and shower, a combined washer/dryer, and a heated toilet seat with built-in bidet :-). The bedroom has a queen-sized platform bed with plenty of drawer space. The living room has a comfortable couch, which converts to a comfortable queen size sofa bed, a love seat, a dining area, and a working fireplace. We also supply luxury linens and towels.

Beacon Hill, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston, is known for its colonial brick row houses with beautiful doors, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, and gas lamps. Beacon Hill is quiet and safe neighborhood, and one of the most desirable in Boston. There are many restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs in the area, and interesting shops on nearby Charles Street.

It is fifteen minutes by taxi to the airport for about $25 or twenty-five minutes by public transportation for $2.50. South Station (which has the subway, Amtrak, and a bus terminal) is four stops away on the nearby Red Line subway and North Station is a fifteen minute walk.

You do not need a car to tour all of Boston. But if you do have a car, note that parking is limited. There is garage parking in the area ranging in price from $15 to $35 per day.

No smoking in or near the condo!

About Carol Tepper

My husband and I live in Lexington, which is a fairly near suburb to Boston so we know the area well and can help if you have questions about area attractions. We love spending time in Boston as well as traveling around the US and abroad.

Carol Tepper purchased this condo in 2014

Why Carol Tepper chose Massachusetts

We have found that we like to spend time in the city and decided that owning a condo to use ourselves sometimes would be a better alternative to expensive, impersonal hotel rooms. This also allows us to share our love of the area with others that would like to come into Boston.

What makes this condo unique

We love the Beacon Hill area because of the uniqueness of the neighborhood, but also our building was built in 1890 and it has a charm that you would never find in a modern building. Our condo has a private entrance and is on a relatively quiet street for being in the heart of the city.

From the City of Boston website: One of Boston's oldest communities, Beacon Hill gets its name from a beacon that once stood atop its hill to warn locals about foreign invasion. Approximately one square mile in size, Beacon Hill is bound by Beacon Street, Bowdoin Street, Cambridge Street and Storrow Drive. Its architecture and lay- out is reflective of old colonial Boston, consisting of brick row houses with beautiful doors, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, narrow streets, and gas lamps. Beacon Hill is also home to the Massachusetts State House and America's first African Meeting House. Charles Street, the neighborhood's main thoroughfare, is lined with antique shops and restaurants. Beacon Hill has been home to many notable Americans, including Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Homes, Daniel Webster, Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, and Senator John Kerry.

Great place and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The apartment had everything we needed. From this location we could walk to most things and then used Charlie pass for a few trips. Loved our visit to Boston!

Cosy, Cute, Chic and Central

  • 5 of 5

A perfectly located apartment in the heart of charming Beacon Hill. Carol met us warmly and took us through the apartment explaining how everything worked and where to go for restaurants and supermarket shopping. We felt at home and at ease very quickly and Carol provided lots of nice touches such as quality bathroom products, tea, coffee, light snacks and even a bottle of wine! We felt very safe in this lovely area and were able to walk everywhere at any time of the day or night - a few minutes to the Boston Common and down the hill to a range of restaurants. A very comfortable and easy to live in apartment and a wonderful host - highly recommended for holiday travellers.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations, but your property in Beacon Hill far exceeded them. It was much larger than we expected and the location was perfect for exploring Boston on foot. We have never stayed in an apartment that was so well equipped and your efforts to make us feel at home were much appreciated. It was clean and extremely well maintained. If we return to Boston we will not hesitate to stay there again and will recommend it to our friends and family. The Old Union Oyster House was very historic, but the food was a bit disappointing. Found some excellent restaurants at resonable prices in the Fodors Guide. We had our own copy, but one was provided in the apartment as well. Certainly enjoyed the Public Gardens and Boston Common, both nearby. Also only a 45 minute walk to Fenway Park. Enjoyed the Fenway Park tour, but the rainy cold game that our Blue Jays loss was a bit less fun. Thank you for being part of an excellent visit to Boston for our first time.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location within walking distance of everything. The unit is stocked full of anything you will need. Carol provided coffee, chocolates, and a bottle of wine which, was a very nice touch. Everything is in great shape and is very clean! The washer and dryer were not working and we had hoped to use it, as Boston was midway through are two week. vacation . No big deal though because, everything else was so nice. I would just double check before you go if you are planning to use that feature. Don't let that stop you from staying here though because it is great!
