Photos and Description of the North End vacation townhome rental

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Don't just visit the local attractions, stay in one. The 'Skinny House' at 44 Hull Street in the North End of Boston, Massachusetts is an extremely narrow four-story house that has the unique distinction of being the narrowest house in Boston.

Legend says that in Colonial times Joseph Euestus (who is buried across the street in Copps Hill Burying Ground) and his brother inherited land the house sits on from their father. While Joseph was away, his brother built a grand house on the part of the land away from Hull Street leaving little for his brother. But it was Joseph who had the last laugh. He built the skinny house on the narrow lot in front of his brother’s home and at four stories it was enough to cut off his brother's view of the harbor. The legend persists and today the house at 44 Hull Street is still often referred to as the 'Spite House'.

Fully renovated in 2006, the Spite House (aka the 'Skinny House') balances old world charm with modern day convenience. The home is fully furnished with one Queen size bed and a bunk bed ( the lower bunk is a queen), linens, standard cable, high speed internet, local phone and a washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, dishes and utensils.

The home is conveniently located on the Freedom Trail in the North End of Boston with convenient location to restaurants, shops and historical sites and even includes a view of Copps Hill and Boston Harbor. Wake up and walk to one of the many cafes, tour the city by day and dine in one of the North End’s world class restaurants in the evening. You would need to stay for a month of Sundays to try them all.
