The Space

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.

  • Patty and Jim are great hosts. The B&B is located in a center of Newton and is a short walk from the Newton center station from where it only takes 20 minutes to get to the downtown Boston by train.

    The house is gorgeous and has a lot of character, rooms are clean and perfect for a stay of any length.
    Both Patty and Jim gave us excellent advice on where to go and what to do in Boston which was much appreciated.

  • My daughter and I loved our recent stay at Jim and Patti's B&B. The location is perfect - a quiet and safe residential neighborhood a short walk from the T station which takes you into the center of town in under 30 minutes. Patti's breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and every morning we woke up to the wonderful smell of Jim's homemade bread wafting up the stairs! Jim and Patti were also very helpful with ideas of where to eat, what to see, what not to miss, and - most importantly - how to get to those places by public transportation since we didn't rent a car. After each busy and exciting - yet tiring - day in the city, we were happy to return to this welcoming home to rejuvenate for the next adventure the following day. The room was clean and the twin beds very comfortable. I also enjoyed the colorful artwork on the walls. Thank you so much, Jim and Patti, for your hospitality!

  • Jim and Patty have a lovely home and are very professional as innkeepers. The location is extraordinary, in a very upscale part of Newton, a couple of blocks walk from Newton Center shops and restaurants and the T line. Highly recommended! No problems.

  • Jim and Patti were very friendly and I was delighted to meet them. My Dad and sister were very happy with the cleanliness of the room, beds and the bathroom. The room was very homelike and had ample sunlight.
    The house is located in a very nice area - quiet and with a lot of beautiful green trees and lawns.
    From my short experience with Jim and Patti, I have got an impression that they are respectful and punctual people, which made it a pleasure for me to have business with them.
    I would definitely recommend staying at Jim and Patty's.

  • Jim is a fantastic host! He outlined all of Boston's highlights on a map which enabled us to see everything in a day. Jim also catered to my allergy of gluten! The room was very neat and clean. Thanks so much for your suggestions and hospitality, without them we would not have had such a great experience!! See you again!!

  • We enjoyed our stay very much and were very comfortable. Jim and Patti's wide knowledge of the area was a great help to us.
    The very fine breakfast's were a feature of the stay and we leked walking and dining in the local centre.

    We would certainly recommend this place to others.

    Without a car, we did feel a bit far from Boston Centre.

  • My sister and I enjoyed staying with Patti and Jim very much.
    The breakfast was really delicious and healthy, the rooms very cozy and clean. For our Boston visit and the following trip to Maine and the White Mountains we got several information and tips (even some maps)!
    We had the impression that they really love having guests.
    The neighbourhood was quiet and lovely.
