DAVIDsTEA in the South End

Posted by Becky Shade on Oct 7, 2015 12:29:00 PM


Ahh, is there anything more comforting on a crisp day than a piping hot cup of tea? We're thankful to call DAVIDsTEA a neighbor and are frequent visitors to the Tremont Street storefront when the temperatures start to drop. 



The shop is bright and inviting and the selection of flavors is astounding! They sample two flavors daily and encourage you to taste test. You can see which flavors they're sampling by keeping an eye on their facebook page

Explore Boston by Food Tour

Posted by Becky Shade on Sep 4, 2015 3:27:00 PM

When you’re traveling, there are lots of ways to see a new city. Here in Boston you can find guided walking tours, Duck tours, trolley tours and a lot more. All of these tours are a great way to see the city, to get your bearings, and to learn about Boston’s history.

However, if you’re looking for something a little different, we recommend trying a Boston food or wine tour. Here at the Inn, we are all food lovers, which is why we like to recommend this option to guests! Taking a food or wine tour lets you snack and sip like a Bostonian, and you get an insider’s view of restaurants, cafes and shops that locals love. Here are two of our top recommendations:

Urban Grape South End

Posted by Becky Shade on Aug 20, 2015 3:43:00 PM


Here in the South End we have plenty of great neighbors, and high on our list are the folks at Urban Grape South End. We’re lucky to be just a short 10 minute walk from this beautiful wine and spirits shop. Owners, husband and wife team, TJ and Hadley Douglas and their staff are incredibly knowledgeable and always happy to help you make the perfect selection.

At Urban Grape, wines are organized by body, from light to heavy – instead of by price or by region. This allows guests to new and different wines that are still within their comfort zone. We think the progressive shelving system is a way to get a little more adventurous with your choices and nicely echoes their motto, which is “Drink Progressively.” There is also a stunning 16 bottle tasting station in as well as a 14 ft. tasting table in the center of the store.

Hot summer days are finally here in Boston and one of our favorite ways to cool down is with a frozen treat. There are plenty of ice cream and gelato shops in the neighborhood and across the city and today we’re highlighting some of our favorites. Whether you grab a cup of cinnamon ice cream from Picco in the South End or a classic cone from Ben and Jerry’s, you can go wrong with a few scoops!
