Haha drama queen. But yep, still on the same page, more so in some ways and less so in others. I'm really excited to go home, to see my friends and spend time with my beautiful family who I miss so much...but the thought of routine still does make me want to gasp for breath, as does the image of me stepping foot into an office again. But as for the social misfit status...perhaps I am but this no longer bothers me, I've fallen ...

When we finally met Josh, we found him to be friendly and helpful (he even offered to do our laundry for us!).

We arrived in Boston at around 7.30pm and after a long wait at US immigration we finally arrived at our accommodation in Cambridge at around 9.30pm. We booked a room in an apartment via Airbnb website and were supposed to pick up keys from a secret hiding place in the garden – but sods law, the keys were not there! We sat in the lobby for about an hour and a half whilst we contacted people and eventually got someone to bring spare keys. Not a great start, ...

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.
