It’s not a difficult choice! The beige, paper-thin walls of a downtown hotel… or a richly appointed mansion furnished with period antiques, original fixtures and decorations; gourmet meals and snacks prepared on-site; and genuine personal attention from our staff.

The Endicott House is a refreshing change from the same old thing. Nestled in the leafy suburbs of Boston, only 12 miles from downtown, our property is designed to elicit creativity and inspiration. Leave your distractions at the gate and get ready for natural light through windows a-plenty, comfy chairs and an on-site staff that can make things happen just the way you imagined. And more free parking than you can fill.
