We look forward to welcoming you to our home in Newton, Massachusetts – a lovely suburb and neighborhood, just 7 miles (12 km) from Boston and 8 miles (13 km) to Cambridge – and only a 4-minute walk to the Newton Highlands subway station. Where you'll enjoy a full, complementary breakfast.

You might also like to know that Newton has consistently ranked as one of the best cities to live in in the country.

Our home was built in the late 1920s. We live in this house
and are only the second owners. We're certain you will really enjoy staying in a grand home that has been beautifully maintained and updated, including a recent designer kitchen, where you will enjoy a wonderful, complimentary breakfast. (There is no cooking allowed). Centrally air-conditioned, complete with WiFi, your home-away-from-home is filled with antiques and artwork, and offers a choice of three sunny guest bedrooms and one private bath and shower. (For people with mobility issues, stairway to bedrooms and shower usage will be a challenge).

We stayed here for my son's Boston College graduation and would highly recommend it to anyone. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The house was beautiful, spotless and beds comfortable. It was close to the campus...about 2 miles. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Les and Barb could not have been more gracious. Their home is beautiful and the breakfasts were delicious and healthy. We greatly enjoyed being walking distance to Newton Centre and a T station. The area is walkable and runnable! Hope to have an occasion to visit again!
