... Lakes: Michigan Erie, Huron and Superior. All of the water outflow from these lakes eventually flows over the falls. 2,271,247 litres of water go over the falls every second. The flow of water over both falls has stopped completely only once in 1848 due to an ice jam in the upper river. In October 1901, Annie Taylor, a 63 year old school teacher from Bay City Michigan was the first person to travel over the falls in a barrel and ...
I really like Baseball and have been following it for about 10 years now. I became quite intrigued with the story of the Boston Red Sox, a successful sporting club who broke an 86 year World Series drought back in 2004. Their most famous player in the early 1900s was Babe Ruth (the "Bambino"), who helped them win 4 championships between 1912 and 1918. In the early ...
... taking the Staten Island Ferrie to visit the Statue of Liberty. Suprisingly we didn't end up getting back to the hostel untill nightfall where we had another night out planned with them. We went to a bar first, it overlooked a massive dancefloor below that enticed all of us to join it later on in the night. Drinks were pretty expensive but overall it was a good night.

... Revolutionary War. We crossed the street to get to Faneuil Hall, which has been a marketplace and meeting hall since before the war. It has a really famous gilded grasshopper on the weathervane, though I'm not exactly sure why.... Faneuil Hall sits at the centre of the Boston Historic Park, and has a visitor centre, so we popped in to have a look and I got some more National Park Service stamps - woo! Laura bought a really cool T-Shirt which has a picture of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Carruth House Boston
Great deal for the budget minded traveler
Carruth House is a cross between a hostel and a B and B, so it's not for everyone, but anyone deciding to bunk there will have a memorable time. The owner is in the process of returning the place to its original 1890s condition and still has a lot of items on her punch list, but all in all it's a great value and very convenient. Budget minded travelers take note!
Mother Daughter Weekend
My college age daughter and I had a long weekend at the Carruth House, which we enjoyed immensely. The place is funky and fun and features an amazing wood-paneled billiard room, reminiscent of the life the original owners might have led. We enjoyed the laid-back ambiance as well as the company of the multitalented proprietress/owner. We also enjoyed meeting the other guests (graduate students from Germany and an older French Canadian couple) at the generous breakfast buffet.
We booked our stay for three nights based on the few recent, but still good reviews found on trip advisor. The following review is one that we wish we had seen prior to wasting our time.
First B&B Experience
The Carruth House was our first but not our last B&B experience. The house was being renovated but we still felt very comfortable, and cozy there. Our room was nice and the AC kept it cool even though it was on the top floor. The living room with TV and pool table provided a great place to relax and the balcony a great place to enjoy breakfast. The house is very close to the T stop and made it so easy to get into town and see all the sites. All this and it was still competitively priced with the hostels. This will not be my last stay at a B&B and the next time I go to Boston I will be staying at the Carruth House.
Great place, great value
We stayed here for 5 days and had a great visit.
It is small B&B - maybe 5 or 6 rooms, each very tastefully decorated and VERY comfortable beds. Bathrooms can be private or shared. Heidi, the owner and manager provides a very warm welcome and can help with any local information. A fruit and pastry breakfast on the deck is a lovely way to spend a summer morning.
The location is in a quiet street with plenty of parking. The Ashmont T station is only a couple of blocks away.
I would highly recommend this to a couple looking for a break with a few days to look around Boston!! This is a nice and economical alternative to a big hotel. Tip top!
A lovely place to stay
Carruth House made our stay better. How relaxing was this old house. First, Heidi, the host, is really kind. The architecture was very impressive. We strongly recommand you this place for a romantic trip in Boston.
Experience life in Boston!
The Carruth house was a great experience. It's in process of renovation but the rooms that are completed are clean, comfortable and very relaxing. Loved the common areas with all the amenities of home. Also very easy access from the T-line.
This is a great place to stay if you want to take a break from the city and sightseeing of an evening and live in proper neighbourhood for a time. The owner, Heidi is very friendly and helpful. We were in and out quite a lot - always there for the lovely breakfast but had one good night relaxing in the Great Room (amazing) playing pool and listening to good collection of music then settling down to one of the latest dvds. There are good restaurants locally but the ride downtown is only 10mins away so there are lots of options.
