If you want a vacation or getaway at a bed and breakfast in Massachusetts you are in luck: every region, from Cape Cod to the Berkshires, has B&Bs to pamper you with modern amenities in historic settings. The setting might include former sea captains’ homes on Nantucket or Cape Cod. Or it could be an elegant brick townhouse-like structure near Beacon Hill in Boston, close to Faneuil Hall, the Boston Common, and many other Boston sites.
