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. First night check in by 9PM.

A light breakfast is available. A second queen bedded room is available if needed. Message me thru the Airbnb app/ website

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 living room, which is a wonderful space to curl up and read a book. We have a lovely porch and patio which guests are welcomed to use.

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

A second bedroom (queen bed) is available if you have a group. Please message me if you are interested.

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

A second bedroom for larger groups is available for an additional fee. Message me if interested.

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

Please check-in on your first night by 9PM. 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.
