The Ashpine house is a custom designed retreat style home with a mixed retro/ethnic design, set on a suburban wooded hillside within walking distance of forested parks and a sandy-beach lake in Middlesex Fells Reservation within 20 minutes drive of downtown Boston.

It's a place for adventurers to rejuvenate, create, and forge new memories. Our goal in building this home was to create a space and experience to remember.

The space
We can’t wait to make this a wonderful stay for you.


Designed to inspire, this home is filled with unique and beautiful “one of a kind” spaces. When you walk in and follow the rustic wood beams into the large open living space, everything you’ll see is built and chosen specifically to create a feeling of comfort and peace of mind. From the hidden gems of the large windows on the top floor, looking out into the treetops, to the 50s style appliances that will set you in a world from years past. As you step out of the house on an adventure, the near by forest paths in the Fells Reservation and quaint neighborhood surrounding is a great way to escape the city sirens and enjoy a piece of the quiet life, while still only being a few minutes from the night life of downtown Boston.

The Ashpine house is a 1950s colonial, set on a wooded hillside across the street from the Middlessex Fells Reservation. We’re a 5 minute drive from the local shops and restaurants of Medford, and just across the street from a bus stop which allows public transportation access to Boston. This also means that some sound from the road can be heard. If you’re looking for a completely silent forest experience, we would recommend our other property in the heart of NH. “Ashpine Cabin”

The well lit and beautifully decorated 5 bedroom space is full of large windows that look out on a tree and stone landscape. It’s perfect for a group of friends, multiple couples, or an adult family. It’s also a lovely hideaway for a couple’s private weekend with lots of beautiful space in the open concept kitchen/dining/living area. (We recommend exploring the top floor rooms where you can look out into treetop canopy and feel isolated above the world) There are two bathrooms with unique custom vanities, one on each floor of the space. 3 bedrooms on the main floor with one king size and two queen size beds, and two rooms on the top floor with two full size beds in each room for a total of 7 beds in the 5 rooms to accommodate up to 14 people. There is also ample space to set out an air mattress or two for larger groups.

Guest access
While staying here, the top two floors of the house will be your private oasis. Feel free to explore and spread out. We have a full custom designed kitchen with retro style appliances for your use on the main floor. This includes a stove/oven, toaster, microwave, water-boiler, French-press and stovetop-espresso coffee makers, refrigerator, and water-filter. There is a small back patio with BBQ in a very secluded, and safe feeling tree-covered spot for hanging outside. Also a front porch area to enjoy the sunshine. The only space that we ask you not to go exploring is the bottom floor of the house. That’s a private apartment (that will be unoccupied during your stay).

The front parking space is yours to use while you’re here. For additional free parking, you can park between the white lines on the side of the street. Watch out for the 4th Wednesday of the month. They tow cars parked on the street that day for street sweeping. Otherwise, there is usually lots of street parking available for groups with multiple vehicles.

Other things to note
The bottom floor of the house is a private apartment with its own entrance on the side of the house. The only thing that’s shared is the stairs outside leading to the front door and the front porch (similar to a multi-family house). The apartment will be unoccupied during your stay.

The front and back doors of the house have security cameras, so when you’re here, your stuff is safe and well guarded.

Unfortunately the fireplace inside is not functional and will probably be quite dangerous to attempt starting a fire in, so we ask that you please don’t try that.

Please also make sure to check out the House Rules before booking. We are excited to have you stay with us soon!

The Ashpine dream started with a love for beautiful spaces, an obsession with the show Fixerupper, and a passion for hospitality. After graduating from Northeastern University in Boston and getting married in New Hampshire, my newlywed husband and I decided to run after the dream and find the most beautiful homes to create a haven of warm feelings and beautiful design. This is how the Ashpine House was born. For over 6 months my husband Grant and I poured our lives and souls into making this space a wonder to stay in. We learned how to use nail guns and saws and many other things along the way, and built the vision into a reality. It was hard, and we know every board and every nail, and every piece of furniture intimately, but now we have the opportunity to share a wonderful space and experience with you. We hope you can come to love this place as much as we do. The new horizons of our dream is to help others create great memories, then eventually build more dream spaces in the forests of the Catskill Mountains of NY. Thank you for the opportunity to share what we love.
