The morning we left Deadwood, and after over 4 months in the States, a strange phenomenon occurred as Janet and I both lost the ability to pronounce the letter t. So without thinking we started to ask for warder with our meal, and budder on our toast. When we began to be mistaken for Australians we decided some remedial elocution lessons would not go amiss.

Another great day. We started it early with a drive out to Hopkinton just outside of Boston to visit Project Just Because. I found Cherylann Walsh, founder of Project Just Because, googling my book "Just Because" on the internet. A couple of emails later, a book and a letter sent and an excited phone call from Cherylann, a connection was made. She has an amazing charity to help those in need ...

Nearly 100 years ago our grandparents were part of the great Jewish journey of the 20th century.
At the beginning of that journey, Jews lived mostly as second class citizens, exiled from our land for 1900 years. 2 out of 3 Jews were born in the Russian Empire, including 4 of the 5 grandparents we knew growing up.
Our grandparents were born in a society whose anti-Semitism was implemented in ways that limited their ability ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nolan House B&B Boston
A little gem for a bargain price
We stayed for 9 days and loved it. The rooms are spacious, nicely furnished and clean while the breakfast in the mornings were very good. We got eggs various ways prepared, bacon, ham or sausage, fruits, cereal, yoghurt, pancakes, toast etc etc, served with juice and coffee or tea. I'm used staying in hotels and found this a very good alternative which surprised me pleasantly.
John and Kathy welcome you into their home. They will remind you they are hosts, not waitstaff. A full service hotel this isn't.
So much fun!
Great breakfast, breakfast chats, and QUIET!!! Had a fantastic stay.
All B&B should be like this one
This Bed & Breakfast was just perfect for our 3 days trip to Boston. Conveniently located (2 steps from bus station, 20 min from downtown), quiet neighborhood, the rooms were clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated.
The atmosphere is homely and warm and our 2 guests John and Kathy charming. John has a British sense of humor that my husband and I just loved. From room to breakfast, you won't have anything to complain about.
Here you're feeling welcome.
--> Don't forget to climb on the roof for a nice a incredible surprising view !

Best B&B by far
Beth and I were on a road trip along the east coast and happened across this purely by chance. The location was brilliant as it was only a few minutes to the centre and our stay could not have been nicer. John and Kathy were lovely and had a great sense of humour. The rooms were both beautifully and tastefully decorated and the breakfasts were unbelievable. I've never had a better breakfast! Next time we're on the left side of the Atlantic in Boston I know where I'll be staying (and I won't eat for a week beforehand!).

Enjoyed our stay
We thought the hosts -- Kathy and John Nolan -- were great. The breakfast was good, with home prepared meals, brewed coffee and brewed loose leaf tea. We started out each morning with some good food and fruit and left the table after sharing some laughs and friendly chat with other guests and the hosts -- a great way to start the day. It was a first time at a Bed and Breakfast for one of us, and the experience was definitely a positive one. The neighborhood seemed quite safe day or night and the T was pretty close. We will definitely check for availability at the Nolan House the next time we come out to Boston.
We spent 6 nights at the Nolan House. John and Kathy are excellent hosts at this bed and breakfast. Their breakfasts are filling, taste great and a healthy way to start the day. Their establishment is clean and simple and friendly. If you have difficulty with stairs you may want to use the first floor room and then you would only have the 5 or 6 stairs to get in. They are happy to send you on your sightseeing with suggestions on bus and T transportation, where to eat and what is great to see. The South Boston area is an older area of Boston and has a wonderful cultural atmosphere and is close to the Convention Center and the new Westin Waterfront Hotel. We rented a car and had no difficulty going to and from the convention center or accessing the freeway system. We used the convenient bus system to travel throughout Boston. You catch it on the corner from Nolan House. John will tell you to use the #9 bus instead if the #10 to get downtown. If we have the opportununity we would stay again.
We must agree with the remarks made by Cecil & Rhonda from Oklahoma. We stayed with Kathy & John from September 13-17, 2006. The only other thing that we could add is that if you have a problem climbing stairs, ask for a room on the first floor.
We stayed on the third floor, which was OK for us.

Great Location and Clean with a Hot Breakfast!!
John & Kathy are gracious hosts who will welcome you into their historic 1860's Victorian Manor home and treat you like family. They will readily assist you with any need. They are familiar with events in the Boston area and will readily furnish directions and advice to visit any area in the city. The hot breakfast served is better than any fine restaurant.
The home is conveniently located to the MTBA for ready access to all of Boston.
Some great restaurants and pubs are located close by, and convenience stores, drugstore, ATM, laundry, and all kinds of shops are only a short walk away.
I would definitely stay again!!
