About The Owner

I am a working mother of three wonderful kids with an amazing husband and co-host, David. We live on site in the main house of the property with our kids and uber-friendly yellow lab, Percy. We love Boston sports teams, traveling as a family, and hanging out in our yard with friends and family enjoying the views.

The Owner purchased this guest house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Newton Corner

Our home is unique in the Boston area. Built in the 1880s, it is located just under a half mile from the Boston city line, yet is nestled atop a quiet, upscale residential neighborhood. Our location offers the benefits of suburban life with easy access to Boston, schools (especially BC which is across the street), and Cambridge. The carriage house apartment is located in the the former loft of a large garage which did actually house carriages. We've tried to outfit the apartment as if we were staying in it ourselves as a family.

What makes this guest house unique

The views and location make our property unique. We believe that the carriage house has the highest deck in the city of Newton (and even better Boston skyline views than the main house.

Perfect for us to visit our daughter.

  • 5 of 5

I just want to take a moment to express how much we enjoyed the carriage house. It was perfect for my husband and me. This is a beautiful place. The view from the back lawn is spectacular. The bed was very comfortable after a long day of sightseeing and everything else in the house was well thought out and planned.

The walk to the T was about 10 minutes but we took UBER and Lyfts most of the time. This was our first time experiencing Boston.

We enjoyed many sights and restaurants while here. The hospitality was perfect. We hope to stay again. Thanks Again MJ

Great Apartment in the perfect location for Boston College

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Carriage House for 5 nights while at a conference at Boston College. The apartment was exactly as described: beautifully appointed, very clean and comfortable. It is only 5 minutes walk from BC and close to the T and local stores.

Mary Jo was the perfect host, very attentive but discrete. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Stay was excellent and the carriage house a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic stay. Mary Jo and Dave were fantastic. The Carriage house was immaculate and the accommodations were very comfortable.

We went for my daughter's birthday and they made her feel very special. We would go back again with no second thought.

Funny thing is the weather was horrible for a portion of the weekend and we felt totally comfortable and at home just relaxing at the property.

Updated, clean, spacious, well-located

  • 5 of 5

Mary Jo was very easy to work with and readily available. The house is very well situated. As a resident of the Boston area for 8 years, the most annoying aspect is finding and paying for parking. This property solves that problem! The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful, the accessibility to the city couldn't be easier. The price cannot be beat when you consider the total package. I frequently visit the area and I hope to stay here again!
