3 Staycation Locations in Boston

Posted by 365 Things Boston on Sat, Nov 21, 2015

Try out one of these 3 Air BnB's, compiled by Thrillist, and have a staycation in Boston: "Whether you’re putting up the parents, keeping friends off your futon, or just trying to escape your roommates for a night (seriously, is that too much to ask?!?), we scoured thousands of listings to find the most extravagant, historic, or downright sexy Airbnb rentals in Boston. (Note: prices may fluctuate based on seasonality/demand.)"

1." Beacon Hill
Price: $650/night
Bedrooms/Bath: 3.5/2
Mention historic Beacon Hill and you no doubt think elegant brownstones, cobblestone streets, brick sidewalks, and gas lamps. Also, mustachioed Brahmins holding bags and bags of old money. Updated in 2015, this four-story brownstone dates back over 100 years and actually has a post office on the first floor -- so, there’s no excuse for not sending grandma a postcard. There’s a newly-renovated kitchen, a pellet stove, and a foosball table if you’re hanging in. And if you’re not, the place is right on Charles St, one of Boston’s top boutique shopping spots. Just don’t leave before grabbing a beer at The Sevens."

2. "Fenway
Price: $1,000/night
Bedrooms/Bath: 4/3.5
A short walk to Fenway Park, this ultra-mod, 3,500sqft “urban oasis” was built in 2012 and sleeps 10 in four bedrooms. It also comes equipped with a chef’s kitchen, floor-to-ceiling windows, an entertainment space, and a large yard/outdoor grilling area for tailgating before the big game. High five."

3. "North End
Price: $600/night
Bedrooms/Bath: 2/2
Located in the heart of Boston’s Italian section of town (the North End), this newly-renovated, two-story spot may as well come with a pizzeria and pastry shop built into the living room; that’s how close you’ll be to all the action. And when you’re not stuffing your face with the city’s best cannoli, you can admire the unit’s exposed brick walls and gorgeous wooden beams."
