Interaction with Guests
I love having guests and enjoy meeting new people. I have lived in the area many years and and am happy to suggest places to visit and sights to see in the Boston area and beyond.
This is a beautiful neighborhood; quiet and green but minutes from transportation to Cambridge and Boston - the perfect combination. In summer the neighborhood blooms with beautiful gardens and is lovely to walk.
The buses to Cambridge or Boston are a five minute walk to the bottom of our street. From there, Cambridge is a 15 minute ride. Boston is accessible by bus or subway, depending on your destination. That trip takes between 30 -45 minutes.

This B &B is a WOW! As you drive up, the curbside setting is perfect. The house is amazing; Laurie has restored it with such taste and warmth. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. She left a lovely breakfast that we ate overlooking her gorgeous garden. It was so peaceful throughout our stay and great for our stay. The location was perfect because we were traveling to Boston and we wanted to be close to public transportation which is within walking distance. Great restaurants both fine dining, ethnic and a fun pizza place nearby. We will definitely return to this B&B. We highly recommend Laurie’s place. We thank her so much for a delightful stay.
호스트가 굉장히 반갑게 맞아주었습니다. 아침도 깔끔하고 편하게 챙겨주셨고 시설도 굉장히 좋았습니다. 다음에 보스턴을 간다면 또 이용할것입니다. 호스트가 굉장히 친절하였습니다.
Laurie was very welcoming and the room was great to rest in. I did not have much time to interact as my schedule was very full while I was there but she did provide a wonderful space.
We enjoyed a very comfortable and enjoyable one week stay at Laurie's lovely home (and garden). From the very start she welcomed us with travel advice from the airport and even went out of her way to help us with luggage from the end of her street. Our room was clean, comfortable and charming. We woke to fresh coffee and breakfast of fresh fruit, amazing yogurt and assorted breads. Laurie is helpful, engaging but not at all intrusive. And, it was a pleasure to speak with Laurie and her other guests. I appreciated our host's attention to detail and thoughtfullness (fresh flowers and drinking water in our room). A real plus is the feeling of a quiet residential neighborhood (birds singing and squirrels in the garden) and easy access to public transportation to nearby Harvard Square and Boston. The only slight inconvenience was sharing a bathroom with several other guests. I highly recommend a stay in Laurie's home.
Laurie was wonderful, very accommodating when our arrival time changed unexpectedly. It was a short stay but a very pleasant one!
Laurie is very nice, kind, thoughtful and helpful host, and we enjoyed staying in her home very much. It was very clean, neat, nicely decorated... Quick breakfasts and fresh coffee were unforgettable. Garden were amazing.... her home is not in metro area, you need to take a bus, but just 10-15 min to Harward station, but neighborhood is very nice and recommended....
Great place to stay, definitely stay there in 2nd time, highly recommended for all....
Thank you Laurie for everything, hope to see you again, will never forget delicious food and coffee....
She was there when I arrived to drop my bag and meet her, I did not even have to ring the doorbell for her to open the door. The neighborhood is quiet and very nice. When I returned in the evening she welcomed me again and interrupted her TV watching to chat with me.

About the Host, Laurie
I am a private tutor specializing in math. I have two (young) adult children, one lives at home at the moment. I am an avid reader, swimmer and dancer.
For many years I was a home stay host for foreign exchange students studying in Boston. I really enjoy having visitors so look forward to meeting new people through Air BnB. My experience so far has been wonderful. It's been a very rewarding exchange.
