About Janice Hoffman

Hi. I have lived in Greater Boston since 1978 and LOVE having my "get-away" on the North Shore, near the ocean! It's convenient from Boston and suburbs, and it's so soothing to walk along the water. I've made my getaway at Nichols St. a real nice place to stay. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do... and treat it as gently --and with the loving care that I do, as well! :)

Janice Hoffman purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Janice Hoffman chose Lynn

Nichols St. Get-away offers the charm and flavor of 1870, with modern amenities for comfort and ease of living. On the outskirts of the city of Lynn, this home is nestled in the Diamond District, which you can google to learn more about. In short, it is filled with turn of the century mansions and is the nearest to the ocean, but with easy access to Swampscott, Salem, Marblehead, Boston, and you can drive to points north, in just an hour to Gloucester, Newburyport, New Hampshire, or just over an hour to Maine, or to the Cape, with ease.

What makes this apartment unique

This getaway is situated on a wide, but low/barely traveled road, five houses long. Though located in a city, you can enjoy peace and quiet and stay two blocks from beach traffic, as well! Here you will find comforts of home along with campy elegance.

Lovely home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home had just what we were looking for our weekend getaway. This home was very spacious, clean, and above all, warm and welcoming. The home's location is just right if you plan on visiting Salem or Boston during your stay. Janice was also very helpful in answering questions that I had about my stay and always replied in a very timely manner. Overall, I can truly say that I enjoyed the time I spent because of this home's atmosphere, its location, and the excellent customer service that was provided to me. I can't wait to visit again soon and I hope that you too will enjoy your stay as much as I did.

1st time experience gets an A+

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time using Homeaway and based on our experience, we'll do it again! Loved the house, close to everything, every possible amenity was provided, and very clean. The owner provided insight to the immediate and surrounding areas. Hope to come back again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much. It was lovely having you. I'm glad you had a nice time. Sadly, I will be selling the house in November... so my stint with HomeAway will be ending in 2 weeks. Take good care. JH

Wonderful location in a comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four week in this charming neighborhood of homes built in the 1800's. The house was a comfortable modernization of a period home; we especially appreciated the air conditioning, the game room in the basement, and the washer and dryer. It was an excellent location for daily walks along the Lynn/Swampscott shore, trips into Boston by transit, and as a base for exploring other parts of New England. In our explorations, we also learned a lot about the historic city of Lynn, home to Lydia Pinkham, abolitionist groups, shoe factories, and don't forget the Marshmellow Fluff.
