Housed in an old townhouse, tucked between Back Bay and Kenmore Square, this comfy, upscale bed and breakfast couldn't be accused of minimalism. If you're not averse to a bit of Victorian-style clutter, it's a charming, warm retreat, pleasantly situated off the main drag. Each of the eight suites is individually decorated; some have gas fireplaces and all are equipped with refrigerators and your own cocktail or 'wet' bar.
