Fantastic Stay...couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

We were back in Boston for a family vacation (5 adults, 3 kids) and decided to rent this big house and we are so happy that we did. We all had a fabulous time here. The property is absolutely beautiful and has a lot of character. I lived in Boston for a long time, not far from here, but had no idea that such a place exists so close to the city. We had some local friends visit us during our stay and they were all amazed. There were plenty of rooms plus more for all of us. All beds were very comfortable. The linens and towels were of high quality and plentiful. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked a few meals for our large group. We enjoyed a few nice dinners at the huge dining table (there are some awesome local restaurants that would deliver). We even had a BBQ cook out on the 4th and had some old friends over. Everybody loved it and had a lot of fun. We also took the trail through the woods and it was so much fun. All the kids had a blast playing outside everyday.

It was a pleasure to deal with the owner. Robert was very responsive to all our queries. Since we were flying in late, he left some snacks for the kids and a bottle of wine for us. He even came over the last day to meet us. It was so nice of him to let us stay late as our flight out of Boston was in the evening. We would love to rent this house again when we are back the next time.

Note: Please bring bug spray as there are mosquitoes, mainly during the evening hours if you want to stay outside. Also if you want to take the trail, bug spray is a must.

Beautiful property- country living in the city

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 5 nights during our daughter's wedding weekend. The home slept 8 adults comfortably. The kitchen is the best stocked I have ever had at a VRBO property. We were able to get ready for the local wedding events, entertain other family visiting the area and fix meals easily. The Spring flowers were beautiful and the wild turkeys, rabbits and chipmunks gave you the feeling of being in the country. There is one hair dryer in one of the bathrooms, if needed. We would definitely stay here again if the need arises.

Beautiful home with stately grounds

This gorgeous home was a perfect place for our family's Mother's Day getaway. The kitchen was perfect as were the bedrooms. The living room was the perfect spot for our game nights!

Amazing Family Get-away destination

  • 5 of 5

This past May our family had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful home as part of our trip to Boston in honor of our daughter's college graduation. The location is excellent and easily accessible. The owners were very accommodating and hospitable and truly made us feel right at home. The house is charming and has all of the comforts you could expect and then some. The grounds are spectacular. If we ever return to the Boston area, we will definitely plan on staying here again.

Fantastic stay in a gorgeous old house!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. We travelled in for the Boston Marathon from NYC with our three children and my brother and sister in law came in from Chicago with three of their children and it was the perfect spot for us! Plenty of room for all!

We celebrated Easter with an egg hunt in the amazing back yard and enjoyed the porch with a few glasses of wine. The rooms are spacious and so comfy. We also enjoyed the wood burning fireplace and the outdoor grill for steak and lobster. The house is beautifully appointed with unique artwork and a character and charm all it's own. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay...fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer!

Robert is a wonderful, responsive host who met us upon arrival. He was so kind and flexible when we arrived early before check in time and let us in early. I would highly recommend this house for a weekend getaway or a longer stay!!
