Nice suburban location; safe, ample parking, and close to major highways Mass Pike, Route 9, & Route 135- Boston Marathon Route. Very close to MBTA Commuter Rail and Logan Express Bus (from Logan Airport). Natick Mall and countryside= 5" drive. Ideal

It's a great experience staying with Howard and Amy. The room is just the same as described. Very comfy and homey. The couple are super friendly!!! Will stay again if I come back to Natick.
As foreigners, Kevin, my kid, and I have a nice memory of the 7-nights stay!
Our host, Mr. & Mrs. Steinmetz are very nice, friendly people, answered every question at once before we decided to check in, and prepared everything may need. So while we arrived at eight o'clock that evening, there's dishes and forks ready for us to finish dinner, towels shampoo for shower, hairdryer , bottled water , everything for a good sleeping after long trip. What a wonderful welcome! They even have an ex-charger for my forsign computer! When I had to finish some paperwork in time, they used their printer to help me! I got very helpful information about the local post office, shopping mall, banks,restaurants and stores first morning from my hosts. Mrs Steinmetz arranged table tennis and played with my kid when I worked in room. And I must say Thanks for her fresh delicious breakfast and laundry works for us. I really appreciate her helpful guide for local museums and long distance travel. I enjoyed the moments sitting in their kitchen, watching yard through the window, having a casual chat with her, just like a friend. All I want to describe, they're kind, friendly and helpful host!
The neighborhood is good! My kid found that the neighbors left their cars windows opened every day and night. This is a quiet, safe community. Every house has beautiful yard, walking before sundown is relaxing.
The location of this house is just wonderful for shoppers ! The Natick Mall is huge, new, comfortable, about 5min driving. A shopping center is near by, and a other shopping mall which has Bestbuy, outlets is about 15 minutes driving. Daily food and shopping is easy.
We enjoyed our stay with Howard and Amy and felt most welcome. We were picked up at the train station and later given a ride with our luggage when we departed. This was much appreciated as we really wanted to avoid renting a car. This was possible since they are located within a reasonable walking distance of the train station and from Walnut Hill School for the Arts, which was the main focus of our visit. The house is cozy and comfortable and we were delighted with breakfast which was yummy and healthy. The mornings were our opportunity to chat with our hosts and we enjoyed that.
They were very hospitable and accommodating throughout our short stay. The rooms were exactly as described and pictured. We enjoyed our time and the lovely breakfast! Next time, we'll stay for longer~
Great quiet neighborhood, as described. Hosts were very inviting to all guests staying.
Friendly hosts greeted us at the door and made my son and I feel very welcome.
Coffee in the morning and the offer of some breakfast was unexpected and very generous.
Location in a quiet neighborhood was conveniently located.
Unfortunately, we were not able to get to Boston as planned. However, we would like to say that the hosts were very responsive during the entire process leading up to the intended stay, even offering to pick up from the nearby Logan Express!
We would definitely consider staying here if travels bring us back to the Boston area!
