Taylor House, an Italianate Victorian residence in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood, was built in 1853 for international merchant George Taylor. It is situated amid similar grand structures and lies less than a block from beautiful Jamaica Pond.
We welcome guests to the serenity of our home and the gardens that surround it. While we have used some antique furnishings, our interior is inspired by an extensive contemporary art collection and spiced with thrift shop finds. We take pride in the quality and ingenuity of our breakfasts, hoping to make food one of the highlights of your stay, and can accommodate vegan diets. Interesting restaurants and two forms of public transportation are close by.
We are pleased to offer spacious rooms, private baths, queen beds, cable, wifi, and a small business center.
“Unique European flavor”
Finding this beautiful carefully restored home a short distance from the heart of Boston, made our stay in Boston a memorable one. The Inn is a short distance from Jamaica Pond which has a lovely path around the lake (1.5 miles). Breakfast is a treat with a variety of homemade treats prepared by the Inn Keeper. We were delighted with an unusual frittata which was delicious. There were many choices of items for breakfast, and were not run of the mill fare, which made breakfast healthy and delicious. The beautiful garden adds to the ambiance, and although it was rainy the time we were at the Inn, the landscaping was lovely to look at. We liked the Taylor Inn so much, we are visiting again in June, hopefully it will be sunny.
