House comes fully furnished



Access to the House: Unless you make it clear beforehand, that you would like my presence during check in, I will not be at the house.

The main door to the house has key-less entry (keypad). On the day of your arrival, I will text the code to the keypad. Enter the code, turn the lock, and then use the handle for entry.

MAJOR NOTE:: Keys to the house will not be provided to anyone else (i.e. other friends/co-workers/family members/other associates) that live in the area, prior to your arrival, so please don't ask.

A walk thru of the property will not be granted, as it is a major inconvenience to the guests currently staying at my house and puts my security at risk by giving out my address to random people who most likely will not be staying at my house to begin with (i.e, friends in the area who already have their own homes). My house is usually booked 45 weeks out of the year, using various outlets. If you have any questions on the description of the house or amenities that I provide, just ask. I take pride in my house and make absolute certain that my cleaning crews hand off the house in perfect condition for every guest, for all reservations. Please take the time to check out the reviews previous guests have written.

A cleaning crew will not be present during your stay. I hire a cleaning crew prior to your arrival and immediately after your departure. Your prepayment covers a very small portion of the total house cleaning. Please try to maintain the house as it was provided to you. Cleaning supplies are provided, if needed.

House Rules:

No pets, no smoking. Violations will cause immediate termination of rental. Additional damages may be assessed upon discovery.

All occupants (total number of people: how many infants, children, adults) must be disclosed before booking.

4 week (30 days) $3600.00 Special Package (brings nightly price down to $120 per night)

Reservation confirmed ONLY after payment clears.

Any and all fees (example - cleaning fee, property protection, service fees) are not reimbursable.

Snow removal provided as needed. I hired a contractor to plow both driveways, shovel both walkways, shovel all steps/landings and plow out the mailbox. First swing by is no later than 6am and every 4 hours thereafter. No plowing will be provided after 11pm.

Grass cut as needed. For long term guests, I will contact you to find out what time works best to cut the grass around your schedule, so you are not disturbed.

To make sure there are no surprises for any guest: Irrigation system is set to multiple timers - the water goes on from 5am - 9am every day from May thru October. The start time for these times will not be adjusted. If the start time is an issue, please contact another host, as I can't guarantee that the water running in the front and side of my house won't make some minor noise. The pipes were insulated when they were installed, but the water turning on and off does make a subtle bang each time. Water pressure in the house is not an issue while the lawn is being watered.

Address is provided after payment has been received. Since I receive a ton of requests for my exact address, prior to booking, I do not give that out for my own safety. Please Note: The general vicinity of my house is within walking distance of Main Street and Chandler Street.

Location: Route 128/95 - If you are looking for a home to rent that is close to Route 128/95, this house is not for you. Due to traffic and distance, it can take a very long time to get to that highway from my home.

Other Highways: Route 93, Route 495 and Route 3 are all less than a 15 minute drive from my home.

Kid Friendly - pack in play, double stroller, single stroller, indoor/outdoor toys, children's books, coloring books with crayons, and kids movies, are available for use.

I have lived in Tewksbury, MA my entire life.

Favorites: New England Patriots, Boston Celtics, Las Vegas, Brettonwoods Skiing, UCONN Basketball and old corvettes. I enjoy a wide range of music, from classical to country, to rap and pop. I have worked for the same Fortune 500 company for 13 years, and I very much enjoy what I do there. I earned a Master's degree from UMASS Lowell.

LAUREN purchased this house in 2009

Why LAUREN chose Massachusetts

What makes this house unique

Clean, comfortable, and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

The owner had a pie, orange juice and milk ready for our arrival to her charming house. This house is a good alternative to the expensive hotels in Boston. The owner suggested the best methods of travel without having to drive into and park in Boston. The home was clean, well maintained and well stocked. The beds were very comfortable. There are several large grocery stores nearby. We ate most of our restaurant meals in Boston but one evening we enjoyed the small Italian restaurant that is located only about a block away. The owner was very responsive to our questions and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Pristine! We wanted for nothing.

  • 5 of 5

Lauren's home was beautiful, pristine, and equipped with everything we could possibly need from spare toiletries to batteries to breakfast cereal. Her check-in/check-out manual left us with no questions about how to settle in and what to do when checking out. The house kept cool even on the hottest days, and solar shades let us sleep in. It was just the right size for four introverted guests: big enough to separate to different parts of the house, but with pleasantly arranged common areas for us to work together in. We particularly appreciated the extra bathtub/shower and washer/dryer in the basement, and its proximity to Boston and other areas of interest. Lauren herself was an excellent and solicitous host: though we never met in person, she contacted us well in advance of our check-in date with extra details, and was solicitous about touching base via text-message during our stay. In sum, we came here for a week-long workshop, and we'd do it again! Thank you, Lauren!

Tewksbury Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolute gem of a home! Quaint neighborhood, close to everything! All the amenities of home. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS HOME! My son and I were on a whirlwind trip. We were attending the Congress of Future Leaders in Medicine conference and doing college tours. The home is 20 minutes from UMASS-Lowell. There is a train station a few miles away that is very convenient. Lauren, the homeowner made our stay incredible. First, the home has everything. Whether you come in late, or early, there is food treats, water, and other staples to carry you over until you can get to the store. If you forgot ANYTHING, Lauren has it. Bedrooms were roomy, bed linens wonderful, towels, hair dryer, you name it, it's there. She has umbrellas in case it rains. We packed light because there is a washer and dryer (two actually) and everyday we threw a load in and we were fine. The deck is spectacular. I sat out there after running through the neighborhood (hospital grounds) a couple blocks away which had great running paths. Neighbors were friendly, and honestly, I wish I had booked a couple extra days to relax and hang out. I would not hesitate to book this home again. And, I would highly recommend this home. There is NOTHING NEGATIVE about our stay. Lauren is a great host and we appreciate her opening her home to us!!!

Excellent house and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a month and the house was great. Plenty of space. The owner provided an abundance of starter food stuffs and coffee, even ice cream. Fresh new linens and towels. Lots of window and light. Very pleasant house. HVAC was perfect and kept us comfortable regardless of outside weather. Downstairs recliners make watching TV / Movies (which she provided dozens) so nice I fell asleep in one watching TV. We texted the owner with some questions and she was back to us immediately each time. Neighborhood is very safe and if you are a walker I'd suggest walking the Tewksbury Hospital grounds about three blocks away. The streets are pretty narrow without sidewalks so the hospital grounds is safer and very interesting as some of the buildings date from the 1860's. When we arrived the place was immaculate. Highly recommend this home if you're staying in the north Boston area.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for two weeks as we had a gap between closings on our previous house and our new one. With our belongings in storage and our lives in a general state of chaos you can imagine how thrilled we were to find that the owner had anticipated every need for an extended stay. Lauren is a very thoughtful host who takes pride I her property! However, she didn't "hover" - in fact we didn't see her but she responded within seconds to every question we had. The house is very comfortable, fully stocked, up to date, well maintained and clean. It's conveniently located on a quiet side street but very close to major highways with easy access to Boston, Lowell, north shore ocean beaches and the mountains/lakes of NH. Grocery stores, restaurants, pubs and various shopping are within 5-10 minutes from the house. No issues or worries here, this is great rental!

Wonderful stay at a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We (my Mom, Sister and I) can not say enough about Lauren and her house. Her house was immaculate and so stocked with everything we needed. She is a fabulous host even leaving us a welcome pie. There was coffee, water, milk, orange juice, you name it stocked in the fridge. Even little Friendly's Sundaes. Everything about the house was very comfortable and we loved being in Tewksbury. Lauren checked on us several times to make sure all was well. The beds were comfy with nice sheets and new pillows. It was great having a washer and dryer too. We would highly recommend staying here, and when we hopefully go back to Mass we will again stay at this great house.
