About Marsha

My husband's profession has afforded us the opportunity to travel as well as live in different parts of the country. We chose to settle in the Lower Mills community of Boston because of its quiet and quaint feeling yet still be a part of the life of Boston. The fact that we have 3, wonderful, grandchildren, close by, had nothing to do with our decision. Being from the South, originally, we have enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and the history behind our area. We have lived in here for 28 years and love Boston and New England. I have enjoyed decorating and making our suite a delightful haven for traveling guests and my husband is the consummate friendly tour guide, who will gladly tell you what to be sure and see and how best to get there.

Marsha purchased this condo in 1999

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed having Kristi and her family. They were able to enjoy the peak of our annual "turning of the leaves" in New England. The weather was wonderful as I recollect. A beautiful time to be in Boston. There is more history per square mile in Boston than any other place in the country and the trolley tour is a wonderful way to see it all. You are able to get off at any of the places of interest and when you are through seeing the sights, you are able catch a ride with the next frequently, scheduled trolley. A car is not needed because we have such a wonderful transit system with in a short walk from our condo. But if you do have a car, we offer free, off-street parking. We are glad to offer all the comforts of home.

Very clean and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Well kept older home. Half of second floor with it's own separate entrance. Stairs are very steep so that is something to consider. It was a little further out from the city than I hoped, and I didn't find the T as convenient either, so we used Uber and Lyft all weekend but that was okay and easily accessible. The next door neighbors had a loud party our last night there, but obviously no fault of the rental owner. Overall good experience. Cleanliness is my big thing and this was A1.

Comfortable Home in Boston

  • 5 of 5

We found this 2 bedroom and 1 bath apartment to be a very comfortable home away from home. The kitchen was fully stocked, with a dining room table to enjoy meals, and a relaxing family room for watching TV and planning the next day's adventure in Boston. The apartment is located on the second floor, so there are stairs to climb in reaching the unit. We were able to leave our car parked in the driveway and to travel into the city by the T. It took about a 15 minute walk. There are also restaurants that are about a 10 -15 minute walk. We highly recommend checking out the Ice Cream shop. A huge thank you to Marsha and Dave for a wonderful stay. We will definitely recommend and consider this location again when we return to the Boston area. .

Charming & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as represented in the pictures. The owners were very nice and reachable when needed. It’s in a nice area with groceries and restaurants nearby. We loved our trip, but a week was not long enough, so hope to make another trip in the future and would stay here again!

lovely home in a convenient area near Boston transit

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Our communication with the owners was always responded to promptly. The laundromat nearby was clean and quick. The restaurants in the area were nice too. Most of the time we walked to the nearby subway station which was easy and safe. We had no complaints about this rental.
