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.
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.
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.
Must check in no later than 9PM on the first night. Additional fees for late check in.
Respectful of others. Quiet after 11PM.
Only guests registered to stay at Woodside Retreat can stay overnight. We ask that visiting friends and family of guests depart by 10PM.
