Howard and Amy are both kind and welcoming hosts. Their home is cozy and has everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Our favorite part of the house was the art around every corner, many pieces of which Amy has done herself. It was really a delight for the eyes to stay there. Our favorite moments were morning coffee and a great conversation with Amy. This is a great stay for anyone who has a little art in their soul. Their little doggy, Nutmeg, was also fun to interact with. Thank you, Amy and Howard!
Howard and his wife Amy were very welcoming and their home was easy to find, even though we arrived late in the evening. The room was comfortable and clean as was the bath. If we are in the area, we would stay there again.
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.
Howard & Amy are excellent hosts, and their house is a budget-friendly option for visiting Boston, since they will make you a delicious breakfast and transport you to the local commuter rail station. They coordinated sharing the bathroom between myself and the other 3 guests, which worked fine. Due to the lack of air conditioning, I can't recommend this option during hot weather, unless you are immune to the heat!
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~
Amy picked me up from the train station and I immediately noticed she is an artist, both as an individual and in her home, where colorful pieces decorate the walls of their home. As someone that never lived in New England, I was surprised by the way people live, evident in the home and hospitality provided by Howard (Howie) & Amy Steinmetz, where I stayed for almost a week. In that short amount of time, I woke up to coffee and conversation with them, as well as other guests in transition, which helped me to make an informed decision to move to the area (i.e. West Natick) in September. Likewise, the location (walking distance from the train station) helped me to look for a home and is centrally located to the surrounding areas (i.e. Framingham, Wellesley, etc.). Looking back, I will always remember my experience at their home as a great introduction to New England and recommend their home if you want a B&B experience that welcomes you and let's you feel safe and secure in West Natick, Massachusetts, where I will be moving to soon enough. My experience here was great, especially when we spoke with some of the other guests including a student from Spain, an architect, and a physician and his wife returning from Paris.
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.
