The Space

Single family home, in Boston's western suburbs. Wellesley and Babson and Olin Colleges are within a few miles as well as Elm Bank- Mass. Horticultural Society's summer gardens. Close to and easy access to all major routes.

A light breakfast is available.

Guest Access

You will have access to wi-fi, 1st & 2nd floor bathrooms, a large private bedroom with a full size bed and HDTV. The living spaces on the first floor are available for guests to use as well. There is a separate livingroom, which is a wonderful space to curl up and read a book.

Please plan on checking-in before 10 PM on your first night.

We have a lovely porch and patio which guests are welcomed to use.

Kitchen access is limited to breakfast unless other arrangements are made prior to reservation.

Interaction with Guests

Because we are retired, we are around the house a great deal. Guests can choose to hang out with us or not....we're pretty casual.

The Neighborhood

We have a beautiful backyard with flowering shrubs and flowers, the front of the house overlooks a pond and the bedroom overlooks beautiful woods. It's a quiet suburban neighborhood, but instead of being surrounded by other houses, we have beautiful views all around

Getting Around

You really do need a car. The commuter rail is about 2 miles away, and the T (Green Line) is about 6 miles away. We are very close to MA Pike (90), Route 9 and Rte 95.

Many guests have been successful getting around with Uber, for both trips to the airport and around town.

Other Things to Note

If guests need to be out early in the AM, we might not be able to serve them breakfast, but will leave them everything they need to make their own breakfast including coffee, tea, cereal, bagels, fruit, etc. We will also review "the lay of the land" in the kitchen so they know where everything is kept.

We request that guests use the 1st floor shower if we are still sleeping.

Please check-in on your first night by 10 PM.
