2 Boston Bed & Breakfasts named among the best in the country

2 Boston bed & breakfasts named among the best in the country. This is according to U.S. News & World Report whose rankings come out annually. According to the publication, they base their findings on three things: reputation among professional travel experts, guest reviews and hotel class ratings. 12 New England bed & breakfasts made the cut and 6 of them are in Boston. But it’s the top 2 that are getting the most recognition as they are also ranked nationally as well. Before we run down the 6 that made the cut, let’s take a look at what we all look for in a good bed & breakfast.

What do we look for in a B&B?

Of course when it comes to a good bed & breakfast we want clean and gorgeous rooms. We also want amazing service. Fireplaces in the rooms are a plus. People enjoy welcoming common areas and offers of tea service. Maybe the offering of an evening wine service will also help. Location is always big. Is the bed & breakfast centrally located? Are there tourist attractions in the area? Can you walk to some amazing restaurants? All of which is what most will look for in a bed & breakfast.

Other B&B’s in New England made the cut

Besides the 2 bed & breakfasts named below, there were 10 others in New England that made the cut. From Salem MA to Burlington Vermont there are some quality B&B’s on this list.
