Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The location is perfect for exploring the Boston area. Very spacious and clean. The neighborhood has many restaurants that Sharon has listed along with directions to a grocery. We did not meet Sharon, but she was quick to respond to emails which was appreciated. We would stay here again the next time we visit Boston.

  • Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to meet Sharon,as it was a quick in and out weekend visit, but the accommodations were great. The renovated barn looks just like the pictures, it was clean and comfortable. Just what I was hoping for.

    I would definitely stay at Sharon's barn on my next visit.

  • My husband and I stayed at Sharon's cottage over Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed everything about it. Because we came in on a Thursday (not able to check in until 4 on Friday), we stayed at the Crown Plaza, two blocks away...which was nice...and nice and close. We flew into Boston and relied on public transportation, the bus line is two blocks away...which worked great. Buff's pub was great, as well as a pizza place near the cottage. We could not locate a market near location, which was originally a bummer, because we wanted to have food at home base, but that ended up to be fine because the mini fridge could basically fit a 6 pack of beer in it. :)
    What I really loved is that there are two yoga studios within walking distance, Prana and Core Power. I was really pleased with this stay, would definitely recommend to others. Thanks, Sharon, for sharing your lovely quarters with us. We had a really nice time. xo, Jess and Mark

  • Very convenient location. A unique set up in a former barn - kitchen on the first floor, a large attic above serves as a BR. Two full baths. Parking in front. Exceedingly quiet, especially since the Mass Pike and the busy Galen street are less than a block away. Very well lighted, birds chirping in the morning. The host left very helpful suggestions for nearby supermarkets, restaurants, etc.

  • We had the best time staying at the barn. The location is perfect for coordinating with public transit and the surrounding neighborhood had some great restaurants as well. The barn had everything we needed. It was very quiet and tranquil - a great place to just relax and unwind after a day of adventures in the city. We will definitely book again on our next trip to Boston! Sharon was very helpful and offered us great suggestions for how to get around and places to check out. Thanks again for making our vacation awesome!

  • Sharon was great! The cottage is so cute, it's beyond cozy. The neighborhood was nice and the whole thing was just so easy. Will absolutely stay here again, and boston is kind of a driving city, only took us 10 mins into the downtown area.
