Great location full of history
Very clean, nice neighborhood close to good food and not far from downtown. Loved the idea of staying in a restored fire station. We had all the comforts of home.
Who wouldn’t want to stay in restored firehouse!
This is a beautifully restored firehouse - be sure to look online to see the years-long meticulous restoration. It is roomy and very comfortable. All the beds were restful. The bathtub is unique. It was fun to look high and low to see the many, varied treasurers. Wonderful quiet neighborhood off the main streets but close enough to walk to restaurants/diners and shops.
We will absolutely return!
Really cool restored Firehouse!
Great place. Very responsive owners. Charming neighborhood.
This home was more than we expected. Beautifully restored With attention to detail. This home is well furnished and stocked. It is located in a great neighborhood, close to great restaurants and easy freeway access. The owners are welcoming and readily available. They have thought of everything including lists of restaurants, stores, whatever you might need. With directions.
I highly recommend this house.
A great place to stay
Beautiful historic firehouse. The inside is ordain with hardwood fixtures, very spacious and wonderfully decorated. Strongly recommend if you are staying in the Boston area.
We had a great time. Cool vibe staying in a firehouse
We had a great stay, the claw foot bathtub was cool but a little hard to get in and out of for older people and the stairs are really steep. I think that all of that was in the ad so we were aware. A really great stay.
Wonderful bike path and parks.
