I needed a place to stay within easy reach of Washington this was it
Located in a charming semi rural area minutes from the center of Annapolis The Taylor house has it all, outlook, large rooms, position, a great breakfast, service, a charming host and Grandma who is full of tales of life in the area.
I was able to get to the metro and get in and out of Washington avoiding the hassles of driving and parking.
A good evening meal was not hard to find in Annapolis but perhaps priced a bit above where I thought it should be.
All in all a great experience.
We are delighted to have found the Taylor House when we visited Annapolis. It is a beautiful, clean home, and Sophie is a wonderful hostess. The Taylor House is located in a beautiful country setting, but is just a few minutes drive from downtown Annapolis. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable, with all of the comforts of home. The rate is very reasonable - the best value by far compared to the other places we saw available online.
Traveling with small children isn't easy, but The Taylor House was ideal for our needs. We would highly recommend The Taylor House to anyone considering a visit to Annapolis. We will definitely stay there when we go back.
What a wonderful, friendly place. Right down to Jamie, the sweet potato eating golden retriever. We had a great stay and breakfast was amazing!
This beautiful old house has been tastefully and lovingly restored to it's full glory and it was a real treat to stay here. Thanks Daryl and Dave! We'll be back
We really enjoyed our stay in historic Boston and had many places to choose from to stay. The Taylor House was definitely a good decision!! Dave was extremely helpful with info on how to get from place to place. And Darryl's breakfasts were exquisite!! We were within a few miles of everywhere that we wanted to visit and the accommodations were great!! I don't know that we'll get back to Boston, but if so, I know where we'll be staying!!!
Beautiful house, central location, warm inn keepers. What more can you ask for in a B&B? The Taylor House made our stay in Boston a comfortable one. The mix of the renovated historic home and fine furniture with a taste for modern art, has something that will appeal to any guest. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably priced. No details are overlooked with the locally made soaps in the bathrooms and homemade breakfast waiting downstairs. They even have charming rooms/suites for families. The golden retrievers, Parker and Wags, are friendly and well behaved. The inn keepers went out of their way to ensure that our stay was fantastic, including details on the best places to eat and tips for getting around the city. They even drove us to the train station when we were running behind for a scheduled tour. Overall, the Taylor House was the best detail about our trip that we shared with friends and family.
Our time at the Taylor House was beyond belief--from the comfortable, beautifully appointed rooms to the luscious breakfasts--my husband and I were delighted with our stay. Dave and Daryl are amazing--all our needs were met. Dave generously printed maps of each of our destinations, providing insightful suggestions on parking, places to eat, must-sees, etc. He even has a large bowl of coins to be purchased for parking meters or the T, which requires exact change. You must spend some time looking through their "before" picture album of the work they've done to the Taylor House--fascinating AND impressive. The artwork throughout the house is comparable to visiting a lovely small museum. The Taylor House is where we will stay on all our future Boston adventures! (Our stay was in the cold of February, and was still devine!)
This B&B in a restored Victorian home in the lovely Jamaica Plains neighborhood of Boston was a complete delight. Our room on the second floor, restored curved stairway, was spacious with TV and free WiFi. The bathroom, with large window, has an extraordinary shower with 4 shower heads and good water pressure! The bathroom itself has ample room for toiletries for two with plenty of clean towels.The rooms in this house all have names and wonderful period furniture, with ample space for clothing. Breakfast is served downstairs daily and is included with the room.. The second floor has a library of DVDs one can watch on the room's DVD player.
What a great find! A beautiful B&B in a lovely grand Victorian home in a residential area of Jamaica Plain, outside of downtown Boston. Walking distance to a lake and the arboretum. Comfy beds, fun decor, delicious breakfasts and music!
They have been instrumental (really -no pun intended) in creating a venue for classical and jazz musicians to play in the early evenings- a beautiful aria was being sung by a talented singer accompanied by a concert pianist one night when we were there.
There is a harpsicord that was built by a friend of the hosts and artistically painted by another to resemble one which was present when they were in vogue. I have heard that there are concerts on this instrument at times.
These recitals are not intrusive if you are not into this, lasting maybe an hour with a small reception afterwards and they lend a charm to the wonderful home and gardens. There is a $10 donation suggested probably not even covering the dessert and wine reception afterward.
The breakfast is delicious and plentiful with 2 hot items every day plus a varying fruit salad, granola bar , breads etc. The breakfast room was self serve buffet style and a popular place. In addition to this you can make yourself a tea or coffee at any time at a little kitchen on the second floor, where there are also many CD's to choose t watch on the flat screen TV in your room.
Our room (second floor front left as you are looking at the house from the road) was spacious and lovely. Our bathroom , while a little small was gorgeous with trompe l'oeil clouds on the ceiling. Thoroughly charming!
Another plus is that, even though you are in a residential area with amazing examples of vintage architecture, you are a block away from great restaurants, a pharmacy etc. a booming Main St. Quiet and convenience.
We love the resident pups. Check out the website for details about their lineage. They are friendly but not intrusive.
We love this house and feel like it is a home away from home. We can't wait to get back.
I travel to Boston frequently for business and on my last trip, this week, I found that there were NO hotel rooms available in the entire city, due to the Stanley Cup playoffs. I finally found an available room at this very nice B&B in Jamaica Plains. Though it was out of my way, since I was doing business in the Seaport District, I didn't mind the longer cab ride, as my stay was such a surprisingly pleasant experience! The gracious hosts, Dave and Daryl, were so lovely. And the home was lovingly restored. Though some of the common areas felt slightly "worn", I found my bedroom and bath to be better than most fine hotels. The innkeepers focus on those things that matter most - great air conditioning (in over 90 degree weather!), plush towels, updated and well appointed bathrooms, comfortable bed - with soft linens, privacy, flat screen TV, and an excellent breakfast! And I loved the fact that they support local business and products, such as the assortment of artisanal jams, and they support green living, by directing guests to dispose of breakfast trash in a compost bin and recycling containers.
I highly recommend Taylor House for vacationers, as well as business people who want the comforts of home.
My husband and I recently spent 3 glorious nights at this spectacular B&B. This Victorian house has been completely refurbished and is absolutely stunning -we hated to leave! The grounds surrounding the house have been transformed into a peaceful oasis. The Innkeepers, Dave and Daryl, are great guys who made us feel so welcome and at home. We quickly became spoiled with Daryl's fabulous breakfasts and the coffee station right outside our room (coffee is ready when you wake up). The house is immaculately clean with all the comforts of home, even a phone in the room. There is an office area for business travellers offering fax services and free Internet access. The location is perfect - very nice, safe neighborhood just minutes from the bus stop, subway station and great restaurants. We enjoyed their dogs Parker and Wags, who are very sweet and never bark. Do yourself a favour and stay here when in the Boston area. You'll never get this type of experience in a hotel! We've stayed in numerous B&B's and none can compare. I have to commend Dave & Daryl for setting a standard of excellence that is hard (if not impossible) to beat.
