3 very good nights in a charming house, with a friendly service. I recommend it to anybody who wants sympathetic and familial enviroment to stay in. Anne

Very cozy guest house

Quiet neighborhood. Friendly and welcoming staff. Very unique and charming interior. I stayed in a room with a shared bathroom and never had a problem. Typical things you expect from an older house: creaky floors, thinner walls, etc. I would definitely recommend Coolidge Corner Guest house and would stay here again.

Charming and First-Rate

4.6 on February 15, 2015

I had a work commitment nearby, so needed a place to stay within walking distance. The Guest House was charming, with a comfortable room, plenty of hot water, hot drinks and fruit available all hours, and a lovely sitting room. The staff understood Shabbat observance and went beyond the call of duty to make my stay delightful--even getting my car out of an icy snow-covered driveway! I'll definitely be back.

What a great find! I;m in town to see my nephew play volleyball (at Wentworth) and to attend synagogue services (at KI). Coolidge Corner Guest House is not only convenient to both; it's also reasonable and very comfortable. You'll be seeing more of me, and I'll share your info with other relatives of players!

cosy b&b

A quaint Victorian house in a perfect location - very quiet, yet mere blocks from lively Coolidge Corner with many good restaurants, minutes from T and bus stops. Warm, welcoming staff at breakfast. I've stayed here several times and plan to return.

Great place at a great price!

Compared to the other B&Bs in the area, this place was a bargain! The breakfast was continental, but there was a variety of food and cookies, cake, and fruit left out all day for snacks. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and gave us breakfast early one day since we had a early appointment that day. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Boston!

A friend and I stayed here for 4 days and throughly enjoyed our stay. Not only was the place very beautiful, clean and comfortable but the service was outstanding. Everyone was very warm and welcoming. Breakfast was great!

New Year's getaway 2015

4.8 on January 07, 2015

Chosen for proximity to Allston apartment of son and daughter-in-law where we were able to walk. Loved being in a neighborhood. We were able to Uber at night to get "home". Very ample breakfast spread and very nice to be able to commune with other guests. Very quiet establishment too. Will come again.

Lovely Inn in a great location for my needs.

4.4 on December 26, 2014

The Coolidge Corner was a perfect location and inn for my last trip (and future trips) out to the Boston area to visit my daughter living outside of the city off the green line. The inn was clean and easily accessible and the staff was friendly and helpful. Jim especially offered pleasant morning conversations and advice on local sight-seeing to occupy myself during my daughter's final exams. As with many of these older homes, the noise from the adjoining room did carry a bit, but I'm not a particularly light sleeper, so it wasn't a problem for me. I'll definitely be back!

Comfortable and Quaint
