  • Maybe it's because I've travelled a lot in Europe, and Boston does not have many houses with original furniture, a house that someone lived there until 1960 seems interesting? This house made me the i...  more »

  • Strolling through the neighborhood of beacon hill, we came across this House. Guided tour of the House that remained at the time regarding decoration, furniture, dishes, etc (except for the kitchen) was very informative about the life of the time thanks to a passionate guide. A big thank you

  • Great little historic house museum dating to the 1800s. Due to its limited ownership (only 2) it's managed to retain the vast majority of its original look. The guides are very knowledgeable and clearly enjoy telling the story of the house.
  • This house was bequeathed in the will of the daughter, it has original furniture for her as well as her parents so it's a bit more authentic than some of the other houses around. Interesting tour and energetic tour guide. It's a nice house to visit if you're in Boston looking for something to do.
  • Excellent look into life in Boston in the early 1900's
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the tour --raining outside and the new Director was very kind and helpful. I would go again and only wish the kitchen had been restored --more info about cooking, meals, and gardening during that period would be nice.
  • While the building is gorgeous and takes you back in time, the best part about the Nichols House is the story of the woman who lived there! My favorite historical home tour in Boston.

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.
