Quite and leafy, bordering conservation land with walks, this very clean, updated ranch has a large front yard and a fenced in backyard. 18 miles from Boston, 5 miles from Walden Pond, a wonderful retreat setting, yet easy access to MA Pike,128,Rt.2.
Excellent accommodations. Adam is a gracious and accommodating host, perhaps more than any other I've encountered in years of travel. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very clean, stocked and tidy. Adam allows use of common spaces including the kitchen, although my own schedule has been too busy for taking much advantage of common spaces besides prepping a quick meal. Actually, that's not entirely true -- I've relaxed several times at the large, shaded table on the front patio overlooking the beautiful front yard in the quiet residential neighborhood. That's a real plus for me since I love the outdoors. I was able to bring my dog with me for the stay and the fenced-in back yard was perfect for her (it's a small fence and she's not a jumper). Truly, Adam couldn't be a better host. His house location is, for me, ideal, because it abuts conservation land and local trails for hiking (my main leisure activity) and is very close to Walden Pond (which unfortunately does not allow dogs but is a great place to walk and ponder).
