This home is located on Forest Street, Medford, MA close to Downtown Boston, Fenway Park and major colleges (Tufts University is 1 mile away), with easy access into Boston using public transportation.

Take an Express Bus #326 (Monday-Friday) from Medford Square to Government Center (see time restrictions on MBTA.com) or Bus #134 from Medford Square to Wellington Station then take the Orange Line train into the city with connections to other parts of town. Or drive to Wellington Station and park your car and take the Orange Line Train into the city. You can purchase your Charlie Card at Wellington Station. Depending on time of day and mode of transportation it takes approximately 15-30 minutes to get into the city from my location in Medford.

Family Vacation: Come visit Boston and enjoy all that it has to offer. Use this home as your 'home-base' and explore the surrounding areas. Take a boat to Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod, the train to New York City for a Broadway show, or rent a car and drive to Kittery for outlet shopping, a lobster dinner or a walk on the beach. You are in a perfect location to explore what Boston has to offer at an affordable rate.

Corporate Housing: Relocation can be difficult, especially when you can't take your family with you - at first. Being comfortable in your surroundings is important when you move into a new city. We know you'll feel comfortable and at home with the spacious surroundings and friendly neighbors.

Events in Boston: If you have a wedding, convention, looking at colleges in the area or another special occasion to visit Boston - this home is a wonderful place to come and stay with your friends and family. Please be aware - this is not a 'party house' - please respect our wishes.
