Sweet Little House in JP, Boston

House - Private room · Spring Park Ave, Boston, MA 02130, United States

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. Nestled under an eave and overhung by an evergreen you can often lie in bed and watch birds flit about. 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. Our modern kitchen 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.
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 (website hidden) Pond is perfect for a run or stroll and slightly farther on you can lose yourself in Harvard's Arnold Arboretum.

  • My partner and I had a very nice 3 night stay at Hillary's place. She is very friendly and we felt very much at home. The room was small but cozy and definitely enough space for us. Hillary gave us great recommendations for places and restaurant to visit around the neighbourhood. We love the area, lots of interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance, easy access to public transportation. Will stay there again for future visits.

  • I really enjoyed my stay with Hilary and Hazel. I stayed there for 3 nights while I was visiting Boston for an externship. Since day one, Hilary was so helpful. She provide me with a binder full with activities to do and maps of Boston which was great. Plus, she gave me some great tips.
    It's a great location-very convenient to get downtown Boston and to the hospitals on Longwood Ave. There's a lot of restaurants close by too. If you're visiting Boston, I would recommend staying with Hilary. :)

  • We had a very nice 3-night-stay at Hilary´s house. Hilary is a very friendly and helpfull host so she recommended us great restaurants to go in the neighborhood. The room was small but totaly enough space for the two of us, big and clean bathroom and the kitchen was free to use. Jamaica Plain is a quite and pretty nice area and by tram it is not too far from downtown. We would definetly come back!:-)

  • We stayed at Hilary's house for 3 nights while we were visiting Boston. It was a great location - very convenient to get to downtown Boston, and also an interesting neighbourhood. There are lots of great restaurants and a grocery store close by. Hilary was a great host - she was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us some excellent tips. We enjoyed our stay!

  • Staying at Hilary's place truly felt like home away from home for me. She's really figured out the airbnb gig with clear communication, warmth and thoughtful touches. Daffodils in my room when I arrived -- in the middle of this winter, that was special indeed. She was welcoming and helpful and informative throughout the week I stayed, everything was clear and easy and comfortable.

    Jamaica Plain is a great place to stay and I will come back to learn more about the area. Super easy to get to the bus, the T and take a walk around the pond.

  • Staying at Hilary's was a complete pleasure! The house is beautiful, filled with wonderful craft and lots of little trinkets that give the house a deeply loved and homely feel.
    Hilary was incredibly welcoming and relaxed, handed me a housekey and made me feel completely at home. She is clearly completely at ease with guests and created the perfect balance of hosting me, chatting and helping wherever she could, even giving me a lift in her car to an event down the road.
    The bedroom was the perfect size for me, very cosy and full of light.
    I would love to stay again and can not recommend the place highly enough!

  • Me and my boyfriend stayed in Hilary's house for 4 days and it was a great experiencie. She give us her keys and a lot of maps and tips of thing to do in Boston. The place is great, big, beatiful. If I have to say one thing bad it would be that the bed was a little bit hard, but it really doen't matter when you are so good in the entire house. Hillary and her family was great, the neighborhood was perfect and really near the subway. We were lucky that we could live such a great experience.

  • Hilary, Hazel and Aggie were wonderful hosts! I stayed with them for an entire week and had a lovely experience. They are extremely welcoming and friendly, and made me feel (for 1 week) like part of the family. On top of that, Hilary gave me advice on routes to take to my new job (very good advice, I might add) and even jumpstarted my car when the battery died. I wholeheartedly recommend staying here!

About
I was born and raised in New England and have lived here for most of my life. I moved to Boston in 1986 and have lived in Central Square, Coolidge Corner and Fort Point; finally settling in Jamaica Plain in 1996. I am an artist working in primarily textile-based media. I bought my home sixteen years ago and have lovingly renovated it bit by bit ever since. I am now lucky to share it with my teenage daughter and our short dog. If you visit in the warm months you will see I love to garden and if you visit in the winter you will find I bake when I can’t be outside digging. Not sitting still for long I am always working on something and my home shows my passions for contemporary ceramics, tools, and the color orange, among other things. I love where I live and enjoy sharing my house, my collections and my neighborhood with others.
