About this listing

Our tiny guest room, often a favorite in a house of cool rooms, feels much like a tree house or ship's berth with a full sized bed. Our antique house in hip JP has a modern kitchen, shared bath and is a quick ride to downtown and the Medical Area.

The Space

We have one tiny room available for guests in our sweet little house. Our guest room, often a favorite in a house of cool rooms, feels much like a tree house or ship's berth. The full sized bed takes up almost the whole room, but that's what tree-house-ish rooms are like.
Our petite c.1890 house is settled ideally in lovely Jamaica Plain, MA. Lovingly renovated and filled with art you will find it welcoming and comfortable. Built for the mistress of the mansion owner across the street, our house is small, straight forward, and simple, with very fancy period radiators. We try to bring the outdoors in with lots of light and fresh flowers. In the warm months you can hang outside in the garden.

Guest Access

Our modern kitchen, which our guests are welcome to use, looks out on a shaded terrace with a table for four and flower gardens, berry bushes and herb and vegetable beds. All linens and a hairdryer are provided and the bathroom is shared. There is ample and easy on-street parking.

Interaction with Guests

We like to be welcoming and also let you do your own thing. At times we have shared meals with our guests and at other times our paths barely cross. Our primary goal is to make you feel at home and at ease so you can comfortably enjoy our neighborhood and city.

The Neighborhood

Jamaica Plain, often considered the grooviest place to be in Boston, we are a 5 minute walk to the Orange Line train and 3 minutes to the 39 bus; both getting you downtown in 15-30 minutes. Longwood Medical Area and Harvard Medical School are a 20 minute ride from the end of the street. Walk to many fabulous restaurants, or if you prefer to cook get your ingredients at Wholefoods, only 7 minutes away by foot. Jamaica Pond is perfect for a run or stroll and slightly farther on you can lose yourself in Harvard's Arnold Arboretum.

Getting Around

Subway and Bus, both getting you down town within 20 minutes door to door. The neighborhood of JP also offers wonderful walks and street life.

House Rules

We want our guests to be comfortable and enjoy not just our house but our city. To those ends we welcome inquiries about what to do and where to go. Our guests should feel free to use the kitchen and living room and not feel confined to "their room". Store your food in the fridge, eat your meal on the terrace, read a book on the couch or hammock. We request only your general consideration of living with others.
Our one hard and fast rule is:
No smoking on the property.
