Tom & Lisa were gracious hosts. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. I recommend this home to anybody who wishes to stay in the Wellseley area. This was very convenient to the Babson College campus.
I very much appreciated the Dorans' hospitality. I enjoyed
their laid-back friendly way of being welcoming and making me feel at home. Their home allowed both privacy and conversation. I can't remember sleeping better than in their quiet and very pleasant upstairs "in the tree tops" bedroom. Lisa served me a delicious light breakfast. I will certainly return next time I stay over in Wellesley.
I was very pleased and comfortable with my two night stay at Woodside retreat., The host and hostess were friendly and welcoming. I would definitely stay again and have already recommendedWoodside Retreat to a friend who booked a night there immediately.
I work in Needham and live on the Cape so decided to experiment with staying somewhere closer to the office. Lisa and Tom were very welcoming, the room and bed were wonderful (I slept better than I usually do in an unfamiliar beds), and I plan to go back there again when the opportunity arises.
This was my second stay with Lisa and Tom and it felt very much like I was an old friend returning for a visit. I enjoyed full use of the kitchen and even invited to a meal or two during my stay.
These folks are wonderful hosts and will do their best to make you feel at home!
I ended up arriving later than originally planned but everything was as described and in the morning when I discovered that I packed a new dress shirt which required cuff links Lisa was handy enough to make a home made one for me which worked great!
I had a great stay with Tom and Lisa. Very very nice people and so accomodating. Great room and a very nice house. I would reccomend staying there to anyone.
Lisa and Tom are very gracious, considerate hosts. The bed is extremely comfortable and the house is full of plants and light. After working hard all day it was a pleasure to come back to this quiet refuge in order to rest and renew.
This was my first airbnb experience so I had no idea what to expect. I needed a place to crash for a short time while I was in town to give a lecture & workshop. Lisa and Tom were like old friends, making me feel totally comfortable and almost as if I was in my own home. I wish I could have had more time to spend getting to know them a little. Very gracious hosts.
Lisa and Tom were very friendly and gracious hosts. I would recommend them to anyone staying in the Wellesley area! The room (and the whole house) was comfortable and clean.
