Couldn't have asked for a more generous host! So flexible and welcoming. Excellent communication. And such a sweet pup! Three minute walk to the T and a twenty minute trip downtown thereafter. A great experience!

We thought it was a fun place to stay because of the frienly hostess and dog. We enjoyed the arty and local flair of Melissa's home. The location is in a great neighborhood and the room, including the bed, was quite comfortable. Thank you, Melissa.
