As a life long New England resident I would be happy to help you with your vacation plans! I am very familiar with Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Northern New England, Maine and the Rockport/Gloucester area.

Whatever brings you to the Boston area, I think you will be delighted with the quality and location of this house.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house and location were great for our first trip to Boston. There were so many rooms and the house felt like our home away from home.

A lovely house with character and a great location for Boston marathon runners and their family!!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! Molly was incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. I ran the Boston Marathon and the location was great for both me as the runner and also for my family to come down to the course and see me as I ran by. The house is about 1 mile from the 20 mile marker. Molly gave us a lot of helpful information in regards to the marathon and navigating in the city of Boston. I had millions of questions and she answered them thoroughly and patiently. The only reason I am not giving this property 5 stars is just due to some tile in the upstairs bathroom being loose which was tricky dealing with our children. I was a tad worried the kids could slip and fall or cut their feet. We would absolutely come back and stay again!!

Great location with lots of room for a large family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house from Molly to serve as a home base for family to stay during our son's wedding. There was lots of room and we had easy access to Boston and surrounding areas. Molly was very accommodating and took the time to let us tour the house prior to our arrival. She was also very responsive via text and email. All of our guests had a wonderful time thanks to this Newton home.

Great House, Great Location, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Molly's house for a family wedding with 17 guests that were from out of town. The house was better than expected, it had loads of space, privacy and all of the amenities to support our family and more. Great location, close to downtown with quick access to major routes. Molly and her family were friendly and extremely prompt and helpful when looking for household items or getting area advice. Molly was very accommodating when making unique reservations as our group was too small for the entire house but too big for one unit, while also welcoming our family dogs. We would recommend Molly's place to everyone. A vacation to remember.

Clean, comfortable, great location for the marathon

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for marathon weekend and it worked out great! Space was comfortable and allowed our group to be together. Molly was great to work with and very responsive to our needs (didn't expect to need the air conditioning!).

Wonderful place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This very comfortable and large six bedroom home was perfect for our family as we gathered for our son's wedding in Boston. From the living room to the big dining room to the kitchen area and even the deck outside for grilling, there were so many great places for conversation and just enjoying being together as a family. We were there on one of the hottest Boston weekends but the air conditioning units kept us cool and comfortable. This home is in a beautiful neighborhood and only 10 minutes from the airport. Being able to stay together in this wonderful home as we gathered the family for such s special occasion was an answer to our prayers!
