I had a lovely stay at The 1863 House, a charming house in an interesting area. The hosts were wonderful. I was in Boston for a conference and had to work, but they made my stay more enjoyable. The room was beautiful and the bed comfortable.

We loved our trip to Boston. It's a lovely city with many cultural attractions from art and music to historic sites. The 1863 House Bed and Breakfast was the perfect introduction to the city. It's a gorgeous old town house full of charm and beauty, from the paintings on the walls, to the ceramic bowls and vases on the tables,...

It is a very comfortable, large room, with traditional and antique furnishings. The bathroom is technically shared with another room, but the other room was mostly empty while we were there. The hosts were wonderful, interesting people, with all the conversation you want, or quiet if you prefer. The breakfast was beautiful, with fresh fruit, fresh orange juice, and unique...

I had 5 nights at this bnb, and enjoyed every minute. Ben and Jane were perfect hosts - interested and friendly without being at all intrusive. The house is impressive. The location is great, being fairly close to the underground and the city centre, as well as a lot of very different restaurants and café, without being at all noisy....

We just returned from three nights at the 1863 House. Excellent location, comfortable and colorful home, filling breakfasts with delicious freshly made OJ. . But what makes this place so special are the hosts, Jane and Ben. Lively, friendly, fun, engaged and wonderful folks. Relaxed and open - you really feel like it is a stay with old friends. Now...

We had a lovely stay at the 1863 house with Jane and Ben. They were very hospitable hosts helping orientate us to Boston and very helpful with tips of what to see and how to get there. The house is in a beautiful neighbourhood and walking distance to downtown. We were in a lovely room on the third floor, thankfully...

What a find! The house is full of really tastefully chosen furniture and furnishings. Jane calls it junk - she's being modest; she has a great eye. It's a fabulous house in a convenient location, walking distance from the theatre area and just over a couple of miles from Fenway Park, home of Boston Red Sox. The metro can get...

I had most enjoyable stay in Jane and Ben's house, with everything I possibly need available. Breakfast, including famous orange juice prepared by Ben early morning, was absolutely perfect and plentiful. Both hosts, Ben and Jane, are very helpful and accommodating. Many thanks to these wonderful hosts!

The home owners were amazing, the fresh squeezed juice each morning was a real treat. The 1863 House was everything I hoped for. This was our last mother, daughter trip before college so I wanted it to be special.

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
