Quiet neighborhood, 8 min walk to light rail T and Newton Center's eclectic collection of eateries and small shops. Wireless throughout, enhanced cable, We love hoasting and assisting our guests.
We have been our B&B (The Park Lane) for 19 years. We are both cozy and convenient. The three rooms afford a comfortable stay on a quiet tree-lined street, which is a quiet alternative to the busy streets of Boston. Our 100 year-old house, with its beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, working fireplace and antiqued decor embraces you with its eloquent casualness after a day filled with sightseeing or work. You can run along Comm Ave. (the marathon route) or Chrystal Lake, each being five minutes walk.
We are relocation specialists (Jim is a life-long Newtonian and is a Real Estate agent) We provide fax and computer accessability if needed, safe off-stret parking. Glluten-free, kosher, lactose free and other special dietary needs accommodated upon advance request.
The cozy corner of our kitchen is where our guests gather each morning for our enhanced continental breakfast, which often includes fresh home-made bread (by Jim) and jams (from our friend John)--all served by Patti. We are flexible if you require an earlier start.
We know the T and the roads and provide maps, shortcuts, and advice for touringbased on our years of experience. The double and twin rooms on our top floor afford privace from the rest of the house, where even the most finicky of sleepers can find a good night's rest.
Glueen-free, dairy-free ,kosher, and special diets accommodated--advanced notice requested.
We loved our stay at Jim and Patti's house! We got greated with some amazing apple cider and even if we arrived a bit late, Patti was adamant to give us some touring tips and restaurant suggestions!
The breakfast prepared by Patti was an excellent way to start off our days in Boston and we also enjoying the little morning chats with the other houseguests!
The house is conviniently located near Newton Center T stop which is a 5 min walk away. From the T you can easily get anywhere downtown Boston with a 20-25 min train ride.
All in all, we had an amazing stay at Jim and Patti's B&B! We would go back anytime :)
Accommodation was as described, very clean and comfortable, breakfast was more than adequate. Area was beautiful, easy to get to train station and good connection into Boston center. Jim was very helpful, even picked us up at the station when we arrived. Patti was away whilst we were there so did not get to meet her. She was so helpful when we booked and had a good chat on the phone. Would recommend this B+B to anyone on their visit to Boston.
Thanks for your kind words. As per your suggestion, I am sorry you perhaps did not let Jim know you wanted hot drinks on a frequent basis. We have hot pots that upon request, we can put in people's rooms then they can make the drinks as they like. We do not afford kitchen privileges so this seems to meet the need. If you ever come back and stay with us, we will be sure to accommodate you this way.
We had the most wonderful experience with Jim and Patti! The room is great, the bed is comfortable, the breakfast is delicious and healthy! All the other guest here are nice and kind.
What Patti cleaned our room everyday and made breakfast for us really makes us feel like home. Jim is a very interesting guy and we really had a fantastic conversation till the midnight! He is also very considerate and caring that he gave us detailed information about how to get to the station, which line to take, where to see and eat, even how to go to NYC. When we left his home, he still called us to make sure that everything is ok. We are sooooo grateful that we have met good people. Thank you again! And hopefully we can stay with you in Boston again! Keep in touch :)
Jeanne and I had a great time in the area. Your B & B is wonderful, clean and neat. Great breakfast and conversations. I am so glad that you got to participate in making my graduation from UMASS-Boston memorable. Jim and Patti are the kind of people who are genuinely interested in you and your visit with them. We give them thumbs up:)
An extremely comfortable, quiet and attractive place to stay. Jim and Patti were helpful hosts in advising us both of Boston tourist destinations and the best way of getting there.
Breakfast was first rate with every effort made to meet divergent tastes.
The area of Boston is very beautiful and a week was not too long to spend exploring it.
This was a high point in our USA travels.
We enjoyed staying with Jim and Patti very much. They are wonderful hosts, warm and welcoming and helpful, the house is lovely and situated in a very quiet and beautiful neighbourhoud. Next time we come to Boston, we will absolutely book a room with them again. Till then, Patti and Jim!

So glad you have booked in with us. I'm a little confused by this part of the process....never had to do this before. I think it's for you and your mom. All I can say is that we will be happy to help you have a great time here at the Park Lane.
