The room is at the top of the house, with a panoramic view of the hillside, majestic trees, and Boston Harbor. It is fully furnished; the shared kitchen is fully equipped; rent includes WI-FI, utilities, laundry facilities, easy on street parking. Bathrooms (three of them) and common areas (two living rooms, big balcony, eat-in kitchen, front and back yards and deck with grille) are shared. Ocean views from most windows, ocean breezes, high ceilings and wood floors, crown mouldings, carved fireplaces, and custom Victorian decor distinguish this charming home. People have compared it to the Weazely's house in Harry Potter--something fascinating around every corner, with books, games, and artwork left behind by the world travelers, artists, engineers and medical people who have lived here. The house combines the homey comfort of a vintage farm house (it was a wedding present from the farmer who owned the hill to his daughter, in 1880, and still has the farmhouse-style kitchen) with the elegance of art nouveau-style decor in the bedrooms and shared areas--paintings, elegant carved fireplaces, colored glass and bay windows, and more. It was built at a time when architects wanted to celebrate local resources such as fine-grained varieties of wood, abundant light, and flexible uses of space and whimsical exterior color. There are inspiring views of the harbor islands and the city skyline and of huge leafy trees; large balconies to relax on with Breughel-like views of historic houses marching down to the bay; you can watch sailboats floating on the harbor in the distance or see the city lights blinking on at night, or just watch the blue jays and cardinals play nearby in the giant trees.
We have more than one room available, so we can usually accomodate a group in the main part of the house, with ample facilities for you to cook and eat together in the shared kitchen. There is also a separate apartment available; it is more modern in decor, with a private kitchen, entrance, bathroom, sitting room, and deck, suitable for one or two people.

Your host, Jessica, is a therapist and musician who speaks several languages (Italian, French and English) and has a good understanding of some others (including Spanish). She grew up in Italy and Africa, has traveled a lot, and is happy to share ideas on fun things to see and do in Boston. The alternate phone number listed, viewable if you decide to book the room, is for my assistant Michael; he will let you in if I am away
No smoking inside or behind the house; smoking area in front yard only. No pets.
No electronic noise in bedrooms, other than alarm clocks. Food must be kept in refrigerators or closed hard plastic containers (we will provide them).
Be considerate of other guests--quiet when near bedrooms, for example.

No vimos a la anfitriona en ningun momento,pero nos dios magnificas indicaciones para llegar a la casa. Todo estaba limpio y bien organizado los unicos peros el camino hasta la casa desde el metro es algo duro para quien tenga las piernas mal como yo la cuesta que hay que subir ajajja una vez en el metro llegas rapidisimo a todo y lo segundo las almohadas.
Gracias por todo repentiriamos sin dudarlo.
Nachdem die Buchung völlig reibungslos funktioniert hat, ging es genauso mit der Anreise weiter.
Jessica hatte uns im Vorfeld die genaue Wegbeschreibung vom Airport Boston Logan geschickt, so dass das Haus nicht zu verfehlen war.
Im Zimmer lagen bereits alle Handtücher und ein Ordner mit allen Informationen zu den Möglichkeiten (Essen/Trinken, Ausflüge, Anbindungen, Hausregeln,...) vorhanden.
Speziell hervorzuheben ist noch die Hilfsbereitschaft Jessica's und das wunderschöne, alte Haus, was wirklich sehr gemütlich ist.
Le logement se situe dans un quartier résidentiel, proche des moyens de transport. La chambre était propre et agréable. L'accueil chaleureux, Jessica qui parle parfaitement bien français, a été une excellente conseillère pour la visite de la ville ainsi qu'une aide précieuse pour régler nos problèmes de bagages ! Une hôtesse souriante et disponible. Nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir.
Haus mit Charakter! Unser Zimmer war im 3. Stock mit sehr steiler und enger Treppe.Jessica war sehr nett und hat uns mit vielen Tipps geholfen.
Great accommodation. House with charm. Leaves nothing to wish for. Quiet, clean and cozy. Train station in walking distance. Jessica is a wonderful host. We enjoyed making her aquaintance.
I really enjoyed my stay in Boston. Nice house and clean rooms. The city center can be reached via public transport within 20 minutes.
Jessica is a lovely host. The house is charming, and handy location.
The room and the house in general were very nice to stay in. Even though Jessica was not here to great us, she did every thing to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The house is very close to a subway station and close to the center of Boston. This is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting the city. I highly recommand it !
Jessica is the best host one could wish for, she is so welcoming and you can tell there is genuine concern that you have the best stay in Boston. Her knowledge of the area has no limits. There is a very helpful information pack in your room that list all the main tourist areas and sights and the subway station you need to see them.What a lovely change it was to stay in a property that has character as opposed to the usual sterile hotel chain room. It was great just sitting down and talking to Jessica about the arts and life in general. I have made a new friend for life.
Nice location, a ten minutes walk away from the train station(from where one gets to town quite quickly). Jessica seems to be really nice, she answers quick and provides tips on activities which can be done in Boston. As well everything worked out as discussed with her prior to our stay. Unfortunately we did not meet her in person.
However, unfortunately some of the interior in the house is a little bit old fashioned and some rooms are really full with lots of different stuff. But if you look for a rather cheap room to stay in Boston this is a good place to be.
