  • Informative tour. If you have a few days in Boston, take the T to this house.
  • Cool old house, but it isn't overly interesting. Our tour guide was funny.
  • I'm not really into historical houses, but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable
  • Historic house on cambridge street. The house was saved for preservation. It had many other owners and uses and had to be restored to its original look. They did restore most rooms to the original look. The furniture is mostly not original to the house but for the period. Overall the house is interesting but if you're looking for a completely preserved house with original furniture this is not the place. It's a nice stop if you are looking for something to do.
  • Great example of early Boston architecture. The interior has been painstakingly restored with rooms representing 3 eras of its existence. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and do a great job telling the history and fielding questions.

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
