The door to the right of bed is a small full private bathroom. So convenient in the middle of the night!
Welcome to The Roost in the artsy and fun neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, Boston!
Our 170 year-old, single-family home has three cozy, spotless bedrooms available (see also The Roost-Master Suite and The Roost-Guest Room II).
Down a private drive in the greenest neighborhood of Boston, we’re just five minutes from JP’s city center and only blocks away from two of the areas largest parks, the Arnold Arboretum and Jamaica Pond. This friendly, diverse neighborhood hosts great restaurants welcoming pubs, shops, bakeries, and galleries. We also proudly boast the Sam Adams Brewery, which is open for tours and tastings Monday-Saturday. Fiorie’s is a delicious vegetarian friendly coffee shop right around the corner that's a perfect work space. Hubspot is conveniently located right up the street for bike rentals
This room has a full bed and a private full bath. It's better for one person or two smaller people. It's filled with art. The room is secure and comes with a key. Closets and dressers are empty for our guests convenience. It's quiet and cozy!
Guests have access to the kitchen for cold foods and microwave (unless whole house is rented), yard, sitting area in 2nd floor hallway.
Interaction with Guests
I work during the day from an office on the first floor (unless whole house is rented) and am available to answer questions and greet arrivals. I enjoy meeting new people. I'm passionate about Boston and specifically Jamaica Plain. I perform and produce a female comedy night and story slam monthly. I've also been in real estate for 20 years so I know A LOT about this neighborhood!
I love that you can walk to buy anything you need in one direction (including great coffee) and if I head the other direction I can walk around Jamacia Pond designed by Olmstead or be in 365 acres of the Arnold Arboretum.
The house is a ten minute walk to the Orange Line, Green Street T station into Back Bay/Newbury Street and downtown. Only a three minute walk to the 39 bus to Longwood Medical area, Copley Square and museums. Near the Green Street T stop is the South West Corridor Bike Path you can ride straight into downtown. Street parking is always available or you can use our visitor parking slots if you wish. If you need a car, there are many nearby Zipcar locations.

This is a non smoking house. Quiet hours are from 10pm until 8am. Cars must be parked within fence so as not to block neighbors driveway. One parking spot only per room.
Mein Freund und ich haben unseren Aufenthalt hier sehr genossen. Das gesamte Haus ist toll und unsere Zimmer mit eigenem Bad war einfach super. Alles war sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet. In der Küche gab es morgens Kaffee, Cereals und Bagels zum selbstbedienen.
Man braucht zwar eine Weile (ca 20 min) bis man in Boston City ist, da Jamaica Plain doch etwas außerhalb liegt, aber der Stadtteil ist sehr schön und es gibt Restaurants, Cofeeshops und kleine Supermärkte in laufnähe.
Alles in allem sehr gelungen! Würden es auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen und jederzeit wieder kommen.
Every aspect of our stay was perfect. Parking was a huge benefit as getting around Boston is much easier by walking, bus and T. The house and our room were private, comfortable and immaculate. As our son lives in Boston, we plan to stay here again when we visit our son.
I absolutely loved staying here. It was a great room, clean bath, comfy bed, and fantastic neighborhood. I will definitely come back to this property.
This is a wonderful home & Jamaica Plain is a lovely area! We rented 2 rooms during our stay & both were beautiful, clean & exactly as portrayed in the pictures! We never met Robin, but Victoria was available at all times & was very kind & helpful! This home is outside the city, so it takes a bit more time/ planning each day to get out & explore the different areas of Boston- it's NOT bad, just something to consider! The T is a short walk from the home! We would definitely recommend this home to others & would definitely book again!

About the Host, Robin
Born in Royal Oak, Michigan, Robin moved to Boston in 1988. She found Boston to be exciting, beautiful and more manageable than NYC. Victoria, Robin's daughter was born in Jamaica Plain (known as JP) in 1993 and now attends MassArt full time as an illustration major. Victoria lives at The Roost and manages the property as of September 2014 while attending school. Robin works out of an office in the house so she is there quite often. Both Robin and Victoria have a passion for good food, wine, art, travel and meeting people. They enjoy providing memorable experiences, beautiful surroundings and comfort to their guests.
