Description

The Space

The house has four levels and the guest suite is on the lower level. It is completely private and quiet. Though it technically sleeps four, it is ideal for one person, a couple or a couple with a child.

In addition to the entire lower level, guests will also have access to the half bath on the ground floor, and to the front porch and back yard.

We are busy people so will probably have limited interaction with guests. However, we are also friendly and will be happy to give you directions, make suggestions for places to go and things to do, and even do a load of laundry for you!

The neighborhood is residential and is in close proximity to a park, shops, restaurants, public transportation, Dunkin' Donuts, Whole Foods, and a beautiful public library.

There is a north-south bus that runs a block away and both the Newton Centre and Newton Highlands T (subway) stops are a ten-minute walk away. Boston's Logan Airport is accessible via the T. Free parking is available on the street between April 15 and November 15 and in an adjacent parking lot at other times of year.

This suite is down a flight of stairs and is therefore not handicapped accessible. There is a sump pump on the same level that activates during rainy periods; if you are a light sleeper it might bother you. We use environmentally-friendly cleaning products and launder with perfume and dye-free detergent. Three days notice is required when making a reservation.

I am a school librarian who loves reading, art, photography, folk music, knitting and crafts, and traveling. I grew up in Rome, Italy and London, England; I went to college in Oregon; and I have lived in the Boston area for the past 37 years. When I travel I like to eat good local food, visit museums, explore neighborhoods and even get lost. Visitors to my home appreciate its European furnishings and abundance of books.
