Our one bedroom apartment is located on the first floor of an 1850s era mansard on Elm Street. A quiet residential neighborhood, present day Elm Street formed the boundary for the Battle of Bunker Hill. The apartment, a 15 minute ride from the airport, is convenient to all of the area's attractions including the Freedom Trail, Bunker Hill Monument and Museum, the North End, Charles River bike/ jogging path, Science Museum and the USS Constitution. We are walking distance from the Boston Garden, home of the Celtics and Bruins and City Winery for great music.
