Violations of any of these house rules, will cause immediate termination of rental. Additional damages may be assessed upon discovery.

Access to the House: Unless you make it clear beforehand, that you would like my presence during check in, I will not be at the house.

The main door to the house has key-less entry (keypad). On the day of your arrival, I will text the code to the keypad. Enter the code, turn the lock, and then use the handle for entry.

MAJOR NOTE:: Keys to the house will not be provided to anyone else (i.e. other friends/co-workers/family members/other associates) that live in the area, prior to your arrival, so please don't ask.

A walk thru of the property will not be granted, as it is a major inconvenience to the guests currently staying at my house and puts my security at risk by giving out my address to random people who most likely will not be staying at my house to begin with (i.e, friends in the area who already have their own homes). My house is usually booked 45 weeks out of the year, using various outlets. If you have any questions on the description of the house or amenities that I provide, just ask. I take pride in my house and make absolute certain that my cleaning crews hand off the house in perfect condition for every guest, for all reservations. Please take the time to check out the reviews previous guests have written.

A cleaning crew will not be present during your stay. I hire a cleaning crew prior to your arrival and immediately after your departure. Your prepayment covers a very small portion of the total house cleaning. Please try to maintain the house as it was provided to you. Cleaning supplies are provided, if needed.


All occupants (total number of people: how many infants, children, adults) must be disclosed before booking. Any requests for more than 4 guests, will be respectfully declined. No additional guests are allowed during your stay at my house. Please respect the reservation for the number of guests you made.

***MAX STAY IS 45 DAYS*** Any requests for stays longer than 45 days, will be declined.

Reservation confirmed ONLY after payment clears.

Any and all fees (example - cleaning fee, property protection, service fees) are not reimbursable.

Snow removal provided as needed. I hired a contractor to plow both driveways, shovel both walkways, shovel all steps/landings and plow out the mailbox. First swing by is no later than 6am and every 4 hours thereafter. No plowing will be provided after 10pm.

Grass cut as needed. For long term guests, I will contact you to find out what time works best to cut the grass around your schedule, so you are not disturbed.

To make sure there are no surprises for any guest: Irrigation system is set to multiple timers - the water goes on from 5am - 7am every day from May thru October. The start time for these times will not be adjusted. If the start time is an issue, please contact another host, as I can't guarantee that the water running in the front and side of my house won't make some minor noise. The pipes were insulated when they were installed, but the water turning on and off does make a subtle bang each time. Water pressure in the house is not an issue, while the lawn is being watered.

Address is provided after payment has been received. Since I receive a ton of requests for my exact address, prior to booking, I do not give that out for my own safety. Please Note: The general vicinity of my house is within walking distance of Main Street and Chandler Street.

Location: Route 128/95 - If you are looking for a home to rent that is close to Route 128/95, this house is not for you. Due to traffic and distance, it can take a very long time to get to that highway from my home.

Other Highways: Route 93, Route 495 and Route 3 are all less than a 15 minute drive from my home.

Kid Friendly - pack in play with sheets/blankets, indoor/outdoor toys, children's books, coloring books with crayons, and kids movies, are available for use.

Such a comfortable house and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

From before the moment we arrived everything was wonderful! Our host communicated with us effectively and graciously, the house was ready, immaculate, and even included apple pie and chocolates. The neighborhood was quiet and relaxing and the location allowed us easy access to Boston as well as New England. We loved our time here and hope to return again soon!

Lovely house, fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

The property was well situated with easy access to Boston and the surrounding areas. We found it to be a nice, quiet neighbourhood yet close to all the local amenities.

What reallly makes this rental though is Lauren, the owner of the property. She does everything possible to make you feel welcomed. There were age appropriate toys and bedding for our children, an apple pie waiting for us and the chocolate on the pillows was a very nice touch. We have booked a number of properties over the years and Lauren is far and away the best host we have had.

Excellent property with exceptional hostess

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the property to find cupcakes, a pie and a personalized welcome letter from the owner describing the property and the surrounding areas.

Also on the dining table was a train schedule for the nearest transit train (Lowell) which helped us a great deal in getting into and out of the city. We were not thrilled with driving into Boston, and knowing the schedule and location of the nearest train helped a great deal, and allowed us to relax going into Boston.

As for the home itself, it was exceptionally clean and well appointed with travel necessities if you forgot something. The owner ensured that at the very least the typical things from a hotel room were included, and went well beyond that with a well stocked pantry with coffee, cold creamer and OJ in the fridge.

The home is well situated for day trips in and around Boston, close to the highway and many restaurants.

Out of the homes we have rented, this was by far the best stocked, and the owner clearly believes in taking care of her guests. We would recommend it to anyone considering staying in the Boston area.

Incomparable hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many other rental properties over the years, but the accommodations provided by Lauren were by far the best. She knew we were staying in Tewksbury because our daughter was attending an event in Lowell. On the kitchen table, along with a schedule of public transportation to, and in, Boston, Lauren left us driving directions to the event that avoided major roads allowing us to save time and avoid traffic.

In addition to the chocolates left on our pillows and the pie in the kitchen on arrival, the kitchen was stocked with more than enough staples till we made it to the grocery store. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, the bath and bed linens were brand new . It was as if she scrubbed the house and moved out for a few days (but left everything!) so we could move in! We wanted for nothing, and it was by far the most comfortable home we've rented.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Lauren's home is just the place for a family to stay. Her home is comfortable and has everything you need. Lauren put a lot of thought and effort into making our stay unforgettable.

- We rented a crib for our toddler. She was present for delivery and confirmed the crib was set up, that we had extra sheets and new blankets, if we needed them.

- She left a high chair at the kitchen table for my daughter to use.

- She made sure my daughter had her own Disney place setting complete with a cup, plate, bowl, for and spoon.

- She moved out the 2 side chairs in the basement and replaced them with 3 different kinds of kids chairs, a play kitchen set, toy chest, children's books, puzzles and a kids tool table set.

- She keeps her home stocked with anything you may have forgotten, including toiletries.

- She has her kitchen stocked with coffee, cereal and left us with sweet treats, milk, orange juice and whip cream. Her cabinets are stocked with other non perishable items, if you are in a pinch.

- There are 2 washers and dryers, soap and dryer sheets provided.

- Her bedrooms are clean and stocked with new pillows (sheets looked new too).

- She also provides new towels for all her guests.

- So much more.... (see features)

Lauren explains during her stay that she donates all guest pillows and towels to the homeless and to local animal shelters. This shows how much love this homeowner has for her community and appreciation to her guests.

The only challenge for a light sleeper is the squeaky flooring in the hallway where the bathroom and bedrooms are located. This is expected in traditional homes with hardwood.

Overall, my family and I enjoyed our stay. We have stayed in a VRBO home before and this experience was the best! We have never seen a homeowner go to such effort for her guests.

I definitely recommend staying at this home! Thanks so much, Lauren!!
