10 Incredible Apartment Pools in Boston

Boston is such a busy city, you may not spend a lot of time at home, but when you do, you need a place loaded with all the right amenities. For some, that might be a high-end fitness center or a killer rooftop deck. Others may come home every day in need of those spa-like amenities to help decompress.

Even though living here means a serious winter, consider also finding a Boston apartment with a pool. They’re not as easy to nail down, but finding one means having something really special to use.

Here are the best apartment pools in Boston.

Surrounded by tall buildings and big, blocky windows, the pool at The Alyx at EchelonSeaport sends out surprisingly beachy vibes. Lounge chairs line all sides of the crystalline pool with a few cabanas set back in a second row. Pristine, white umbrellas provide some extra shade.

This modern D Street – West Broadway community gives residents city and ocean views, totaling up plenty to gaze at within the fun, but busy, waterfront area. You’re close to plenty of seafood spots and pubs for sure, but it’s nice to have a home that serves as an escape from it all.

The Towers at Longfellow

Lots of greenery, and some modern touches, combine to create a soothing space around the pool at The Towers at Longfellow. Lounge chairs face into the greenery, although you can’t miss glimpses of the city as well. Bunched together at one end, you’ll also find multiple tables and chairs for that poolside lunch. A hot tub, ping pong table and billiards round out this excellent space.

In another prime Boston location, this West End community is close to Charles Street, the Red Line and the Esplanade. Altogether, this combination makes it easy to get around the city, jog alongside the Charles River and grab a bite at an excellent restaurant or two.

Avalon at Chestnut Hill

Placed right in the middle of the Avalon at Chestnut Hill, this heated outdoor pool almost feels like it’s in your own backyard. Yes, it’s much bigger than a single-family pool, but the community design and the little “house” at the pool’s edge give it that homey quality. Lounge chairs surround the pool and a pergola houses tables and chairs. It’s quite a cozy space.

Set a few miles outside Boston proper, you can still get about using the T, but this Chestnut Hill community definitely moves at a quieter pace. Home to Boston College, this area attracts a combination of college students, families and professionals who all want a taste of Boston without living directly in the middle of the city.

Troy Boston

Sleek and modern, that’s the feeling at the pool at Troy Boston. Surrounded by a glass paneled fence, this is like a little city oasis. Big, long steps walk you into the pool when it’s time to cool off after basking in the sun along the edge or hanging in your own cabana.

Nestled within one of Boston’s most vibrant neighborhoods, this South End community has not one, but two rooftop terraces to show off the excellent views of the Boston skyline. On the ground, there’s no shortage of bars and restaurants to keep your belly full as you walk through this beautiful part of the city.

Avalon at Assembly Row

A curved, wooden deck creates a second tier of luxury seating poolside at Avalon at Assembly Row. This added layer combines lounge chairs with orange-umbrella-topped tables. The heated pool remains inviting even as temperatures begin to go down as well.

Landscaped courtyards and barbecue areas enhance the outdoor amenities offered in this Somerville community. Specifically in this suburb’s Mystic River neighborhood, the area gets its name from the actual Mystic River, which flows through Somerville as well as a few other towns in the area. It’s one of New England’s largest urban rivers.

The Atrium on Commonwealth

The pool may not be that big, but space is at a premium when you live in the heart of Boston. The large sundeck makes up for it though. Sunny, warm days in the city are something special, and you can enjoy them all around the pool when you live at The Atrium on Commonwealth. As a bonus, you can access a second saltwater pool indoors if you join the health club on the ground floor of the building.

Right on the Boston-Allston border, this community is close to Boston University and only a few T stops away from Fenway Park. Being close to an urban college campus, you’re also surrounded by plenty of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.

Liberty Park

Giving off serious suburban vibes, Liberty Park is the perfect place for chilling out. The curvy pool is ideal for cooling off, while the surrounding lounge chairs let you work on that tan. Four-top tables with their own umbrellas provide a great shaded spot for snacking poolside.

Situated at the end of the Red Line in Braintree, living here puts you a bit of a distance outside of Boston. However, many people commute in, even those here in South Braintree. One of the many perks to living on the South Shore — you’re only about an hour from the beaches at Cape Cod.

Charles River Landing

Sometimes, you just want to head to the pool and lounge in something other than a beach chair. You want some extra comfort, and poolside beds with a retractable hood have it all. You’ll find a few of these around the pool at Charles River Landing. These added bits of luxury complement the massive pool, traditional loungers and outdoor dining area. Nearby, there’s also a brick fireplace with couches and chairs.

Right on the banks of the Charles River, this Needham Heights community is about 10 miles to the southwest of Boston. A true suburb, the extra room means this neighborhood has the space for a local golf course.

You’ll also find even more institutions of higher education (the Boston area has so many) among all the shops, restaurants, museums and more.

Avalon Quincy

No matter how close you live to the water in Boston, it’s always nice to have a heated pool to call your own. At Avalon Quincy, you get just that. A very comfortable space awaits with a sparkling blue pool, lounge chairs and umbrella-covered, four-top tables. This space covers all the basics for fun in the sun (and shade.)

Holding its own when it comes to history, living here puts you in the coastal town of Quincy. This is the birthplace of both John Adams and John Quincy Adams. This Boston suburb has the nickname “City of Presidents” as a result.

Even with its historical significance, you’ll still find plenty of comfy restaurants, coffee shops and other commonplace amenities to make the area feel like home.

Barclay on Beacon

Contrasting the greenery of the tree line visible over the edge of the roof deck, the pool at Barclay on Beacon is full of shades of red and orange. The brickwork surrounding the pool takes on this hue, as do the lounge chairs that sit on every side. From way up here, you can look out over Brookline as you soak up some sun.

Although not in Boston proper, this Washington Square apartment is right on the green line. Hopping on the T, you’re in the city in just a few minutes. It’s even a walkable distance if you’d prefer to get some exercise. However, this tiny bit of distance does make for quieter living, putting you close to independent shops, diners and other fun places to hang out.
