Don’t miss this property
What a wonderful and unique experience! This property is one of a kind. Beautifully decorated and thoughtfully designed, this very large room was perfect for our 3 night stay in Boston. Close to the T, or if you would rather stay close some great local spots within walking distance. Hosts are the BEST people and the entire property is designed for the enjoyment of the guest. The BEST VRBO property I have stayed in.

Stellar Cellar
I chose this space for a writer’s retreat for myself. The Boiler Room has lots of light, is spacious, and artfully and impeccably appointed without diminishing its history. Additional bonuses of this property — the yard and the “garage” are perfect for gathering or lounging, These gracious hosts have put great thought and care into the function, presentation, and offerings of their property. The Boiler Room in the Ashmont is not just a place to stay, it is an experience. One I’d love to enjoy again. ***The four star for location/neighborhood is only because if you plan to enjoy the night life of the city, the logistics of late night metro/uber/lyft were tricky and costly as a solo female traveler.***

The Perfect Get Away
This room (The Boiler Room) is a tue work of art🥰 You can’t possibly take in everything that you see the first time. Every where you look, every time, there’s something new to see🤯 Every piece of furniture and every decoration has been hand picked for this room, by The Romo’s. Most of them have been acquired along there worldly travels. So You can definitely tell that their heart and soul went into this labor of love. The pictures of their backyard in this listing don’t do it justice. Their attention to detail is not forgotten on the outside either. We were hanging out with Eddie in the covered garage area. I was going to go charge my phone inside, but there was no need to because, of course, Eddie had 2 chargers already out there plugged in😊. We definitely feel like we made a new friend. Hope to go back there again and have invited them to Cincinnati, so that we could show them around our town and return the hospitality we were shown.❤️❤️

Unique and Beautiful Spot
The Boiler Room had so many unique and tasteful features to it. It was the perfect spot for us to retreat to and rest after being out all day seeing the city. Very clean and comfortable. It was a bit chilly at night, so I recommend bringing sweatshirts/ layers for the evening. Also it would have been great to have a microwave to heat up beverages. Otherwise we were totally satisfied with our stay. Highly recommend! Thanks Eddie and Nayeli for being wonderful friendly hosts.
