... my bags off at a college friend's apartment (Hi Dale!). Allegedly Dale's third floor walk-up in downtown Boston was used previously as a fish hatchery, thus explaining why the beautiful hardwood floors were so uneven. After some drinks at Beantown Pub and some pool we called it a night.
I got an early start to the day which was a great idea since I was about to walk the entire length of Boston's Freedom Trail. Starting at ...
... and piers which extend out of boston and into the Charles river and Atlantic Ocean basin. This was possibly the nicest day we have had since October with both of us just in t-shirts and a single jumper, still with our coats but they weren't an absolute must like they have been !!! It was a great way to spend our final day in boston ...
... could I want? We passed dozens of cabs, American police cars and yellow schoolbusses while the Boston skyline rose higher and higher.
The wonderful thing about the long flight and the time zones were that even though we had been on the plane for eight hours, we had only missed two hours of our day. We left Amsterdam at 11 am and arrived in Boston at 1 pm local time, so we still had all day! The hostel was located at 40 Berkeley Street, nearby ...
... much is lost on us due to our lack of knowledge of the game. One thing which is quite impressive is that Babe Ruth who had played for the Boston Red Sox was ultimately sold off because the new owner didn't like him. He was sold for $100,000 in 1919! Another 12 players were sold at the same time for a total of $25,000. This proved to be a bad move for the Red Sox. Between 1903 and 1918 they won 5 championships and did not win another until 2004.
... bought on another Hop on Hop off trolley bus and we started a tour around the city. Intended staying on for the whole tour and then revisiting but didn't end up going that way. First get off was down by the bay where we had our first seafood roll of the day. Actually shared two, one being scallops with hint of wasabi and the other being lobster. Mmm mmm! Nice sit in the shade opposite a jewellery stall which just begged us to visit after eating. And then ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Appleton Street - Herbst Haus Boston
Very nice typical Boston house
We enjoyed our stay in Boston in this Country Inn very much. We felt like 'at home'. Breakfast was very nice (fresh fruit salad, muffins, toast, juice, marmelade....) We had nice discussions with the owner and got good recommendations for the town.
After our trip through Maine and Vermont we even returned to the HerbstHaus in Boston for our last night before departing.
My husband and I visited Boston in the fall of 2003 and had a great stay at Herbst Haus. We were doing a lot of sightseeing while we were there and the location of the inn can't be beat. It was really conveniently located near a "T" stop and a lot of cross-town buses - very important to the budget traveler or certainly anyone who doesn't want to drive in Boston.
For my first visit to Boston I was attending a continuing education course and I wanted to stay somewhere more personal and quiet compared to a larger hotel. After searching the internet I located Herbst Haus and contacted Kay Herbst. I spoke with her several times before I made my trip since I was travelling alone and I was a bit nervous. I was elated when the trip from the airport to Herbst Haus was rather easy.
Herbst Haus Bed and Breakfast
Herbst Haus has a great location. Very safe and easy access to the subway, siteseeing, shopping and downtown in general. It is in a quiet neighborhood that is safe. The owner Kaye is very friendly and accomodating. You can come and go as you please.
For a lovely location and comfortable amenities Herbst Haus is an ideal Bed and Breakfast location to stay in while in Boston.
We stayed at Herbst Haus during our visit to Boston in September 2004. We found the B&B on the internet, and the lovely welcoming site with pleasing pictures of the two bedrooms available appealed as we didn't want to stay in "just another hotel".
HERBSTHAUS, AT HOME IN BOSTON
Imagine attending a professional conference away from home and wanting some time for yourself to relax. Well, while I attended my medical conference in Boston I made the best decision in staying at Kay's B&B HerbstHaus. It was just perfectly located close to shops, restaurants and transportation. The neighborhood this B&B is located in lends itself for nice walks any time of day and night. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were cozy, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nutritious and healthy and Kay, the innkeeper, was the most resourceful person you'll ever want to meet when visiting a new city. No doubt I would stay here again and again...
The most amazing place to stay in Boston is the Herbst Haus!!
From the moment I arrived, I knew that I would never stay in any other hotel in Boston again! Kay Herbst has created a charming, comfortable, and warm inn, where one can get to know new people and/or enjoy a nice conversation with Kay. The Herbst Haus is located in the perfect spot: the South End of Boston within walking distance of Copley Square and all of its excitement. One can also be at the public transportation within minutes, which takes one to all the sights and sounds of historical and modern Boston!! The rooms are big, but cozy...and very clean. The breakfast Kay offers is generous and delicious, and comes fresh with a smile. Herbst Haus is reasonable, convenient, and a wonderful place to spend an evening while in Boston.
Charming, friendly, affordable, convenient
We stayed at Herbst Haus for 2 nights in early November 2004 and found it quiet, extremely comfortable, and very convenient. Kay Herbst, the owner/host, made us feel so welcome and helped with recommendations and reservations for restaurants, neighborhood places to park, directions and maps--both driving and walking--to our favorite places like Symphony Hall and the Museum of Fine Arts. Breakfasts were excellent--good coffee; healthful and delicious fruits, nuts, yoghurt, plus excellent coffeecakes or rolls. We look forward to returning in the spring.
