After a 5 month, $40,000 renovation, we are now booking like crazy! Happy Daze BnB is a 15 minute drive to Boston, 10 minute walk to the beach, Quincy Center, or public transport, and across the street from a beautiful creek with nature trails, sailing and kayaking. The home has been in the family since 1954. You’ll love our place because of the views and the location, not to mention ample breakfast! Our place is great for tourists, couples, nature lovers, wedding parties, and small groups.
The space is a large, clean, and comfortable 1200 square feet, plus 2 covered porches. There are all new appliances and floor in the kitchen, fresh paint and plaster everywhere, beautifully refinished original floors in the dining and living room, comfy new Greycork furniture, original artwork throughout, and a brand new front yard that has a lovely view of Blacks Creek. The house features 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, amazing views, and a lovely yard and gardens. The Master Bedroom has a Double bed. The 2nd bedroom has 2 Twin beds. There is 1 Queen size and 1 Twin size air mattresses available for larger groups. These fit nicely either in the living room or in the Master bedroom.
You have exclusive access to the whole downstairs of the house and the 2 porches, plus access to the lovely, new lawn and gardens! The Front Porch and lawn has a beautiful view of Blacks Creek and the Boston Harbor Islands in the distance. It's perfect for bird watching, morning coffee, or just hanging out. The Back Porch is very quiet and shaded, surrounded by flowers, and more protected from the elements. Just added... Private Beach access! You can visit the private beach at the end of our road, which has picnic areas, a snack shack (seasonally), and lovely views of Boston.
Our neighborhood, known as Merrymount, is known as one of the best in Quincy! There's a lovely nature trail across the street that leads to the beach, Quincy Center with tons of restaurants, shopping, and the T station within walking distance, and it is quiet and safe. The city of Quincy is one of the oldest in the nation, 492 years old to be exact, and has undergone an amazing revitalization over the last 10 years. There's a new town center within walking distance with a newly created green space perfect for strolling, many wonderful new restaurants opening every week, fascinating historical sights (Quincy is known as the City of Presidents), and even a $10 National Park trolley tour to the historic sights around the city. For the athletically minded, there is a nice new running track and field down the street, a brand new YMCA, athletic fields across the street from the house, and sailing, paddleboarding, and kayaking in the creek.
We have one parking space available as well as street parking. Bus transport is right on the corner, and the T (Subway) is a 10 minute walk. If we're available we'll pick you up from the T station. There's also a new ferry service from the Marina Bay area of Quincy to Boston (seasonally), which is a great way to get to and from the city, with a beautiful trip across Boston Harbor.
