The most endearing thing about travelling around a country like the United States is that you feel as though you have travelled all over the world without really having to go that far. Each state we have ventured to has had a completely different atmosphere and feel to it. The personality and mindset of it's people also differ, perhaps why some …
It's no surprise that the presedential campaign that has been sweeping the country and, indeed, the majority of the free world, would result in that of a most climactic and long awaited election date over here in the United States. And whilst I am fervently a supporter of Obama, I'd be lying if I had said I found his campaign strategy to be little …
So after our late night of being sports fans, we woke up and spent some time in the hostel arranging our things for our bus tour which was kicking off the following day. As Chris was resembling big foot, he headed out to have a haircut and beard trim whilst Annabelle called her family and sorted out her toiletries bag (it was resembling a shelf at …
The day started with a surprise, fresh fruit was available on the breakfast buffet, as opposed to Bagel's which have now started to annoy Chris... the bagel ship has sailed!!!

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.
