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.

First Thursday of the month is an Art Walk here in (website hidden) is short for Jamaica Plain! Here's a link: (website hidden)
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.
The house was lovely, as was the room. The host was a great communicator via email and text that kept us connected. We did not actually meet the host but her mother was there when we arrived. She gave us a lovely tour and we felt very comfortable there. We appreciated the quiet and the comfort. We plan on returning.
My parents stayed here when they visited to meet our new baby - here's their review!
This Airbnb had everything I expected and more. It was the little things that made the difference, shampoo and body wash in the bathroom and a good selection including home made biscuits and fresh fruit in the kitchen. A big plus for us was to find decaff coffee as my husband can't drink normal coffee. We only met Robin briefly when we arrived but she made us feel very welcome. It felt like home from home and I definitely intend to stay there on my future visits.
Robin and Victoria were great hosts, and we enjoyed our stay in their B&B.
I highly recommend Jamaica Plan - interesting shops, fantastic restaurants and convenient public transport to get into Boston to see the sights.
My sister and I really enjoyed staying at Victoria and Robin's place! The house is super cozy with all kinds of funky art, plus our room (The Roost, Guest Room III) AND the hosts were lovely. Great location, cute town, super convenient (the bus stops right by the house; the T is about a 15 min walk; Ubers are always available). We'll definitely be booking with Robin and Victoria again if we're ever back in Boston!
Accommodation in line with the original description
The house is very nice and very well decorated. The kitchen is large and well-equipped
The room is also very nice and purvue everything needed for a comfortable stay
Great experience. We loved the house, the room and the location. Both Robin and Victoria were helpful. Communication with them was great before and during the stay.
Easy access to Boston. The house is about 15mins walk to the T station. A relatively short ride from the airport and was approximately $40 during the night. The house and room were impeccably clean and tastefully decorated.
The bed was indeed very cosy for 2 (maybe a bit difficult to share for two friends ). This was clearly described in the listing.
I would highly recommend their house.
Thanks so much for a fantastic visit! I felt right at home. My room was super comfy and appointed beautifully..the bed was perfect firmness... I slept like a baby. Thanks for opening your kitchen which made my morning coffee habit super convenient. Jamaica Plain rocks..what a neighborhood. Your home is just beautiful. . City Feed Sandwiches (thx for the referral) and all the conveniences just a 2 minute walk away on Centre and South Street.
One of the best Airbnb experiences that I have had.. thanks for hosting me!!!!.. Charlie

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.
