Lovely place to spend the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas and New Years here and had a great time. The property is lovely and the owners have made it super easy with through directions and notes throughout the house to help you get adjusted. The massage chair was also a highlight for our group. We had 5 adults and it was more than enough space to sleep comfortably, though sitting in the living room was a bit tight (though cozy given how cold Boston was while we were here!). The only other thing to note is that the ceilings in the stairwell and upstairs bathroom are a bit low, and the tallest person in our party (6’4) had some trouble. The two oldest members (over 70) had a little trouble with the steap stairs and how low to the ground the beds were. But overall, we had a lovely visit and would certainly return given how close the home is to our relatives in the Boston area.

Perfect Location and Quaint Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful couples trip in your home. Everything was clean and well kept. The location to Boston was perfect and we loved the night views of the city. The big screen TV was perfect for cheering our Astros on to the World Series! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful property! Great house. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Rented this house for a wedding in Watetown rather than staying in a hotel. Met all our needs. Very well stocked. Very clean. Enjoyed the deck off the dining room especially in the morning with coffee and breakfast. Would love to come back again.

Well organized, lovely home with opportunities for relaxation and enjoyment away from the city.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 5 day stay here very much. The kitchen was well equipped and organized. We cooked a lot of meals which we enjoyed in the cozy dining room. We had family game nights and grilled out on the porch. Great coffee and book selection which was a wonderful way to start the day. Loved all the self care products provided for the shower and the massage chair was a family favorite. The beds were very comfortable with memory foam mattresses . We will definite recommend this to friends and family. Thank you for sharing your home and all your hospitality and thoughtfulness . We really appreciated it.

Greetings Will and Marijke Church
