Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This center-entrance Colonial has a large living room with a fireplace, oak moldings, built-in bookcases, and a piano. The second floor has a master bedroom with a king-size bed and single sofabed, and two additional bedrooms, one with a full size bed (can sleep 2) with a lovely, hand-painted nature themed mural on the walls. The third bedroom upstairs has a loft bed for one and a desk underneath. On the first floor is the fourth bedroom; it's off the living room, has a single bed, many windows and curtains, and elegant oak doors and moldings. One more person can sleep in the living room on a pull-out sofa.

There is a bathroom on the first floor with a shower, and a full bathroom upstairs. The dining room is large; the kitchen has a granite "bistro" bar, stainless steel appliances, new granite countertops elsewhere, and new Pergo flooring. (While we vacuum frequently, those allergic to dog and cat dander should not rent. Although we kennel our dog when guests are here, our cat remains in the basement with her water, food, and litter box.) Our property is in a "leafy neighborhood" and has a large backyard. A grill is available for use. The property is within walking distance of downtown Lexington and a mile or so from Rte 2 and 95 by car.

There is parking for three cars in the driveway. No parking is allowed on Prospect Hill Road. The house has 1750 square feet in seven rooms, plus two bathrooms, and a bright and partly finished basement of 700 additional square feet with play space, a TV, couch, and a foosball table. The whole house is rented out to guests, not shared. We have our house cleaned professionally before guests arrive; but we pay for half of that cost.

Guests need to be respectful of neighbors and their properties. No parties or events as this disrupts the peace of our quiet residential neighborhood. (Having some friends over for dinner is different!) No smoking is allowed inside the house or outdoors. Thank you for observing these house rules.

Great stay in Lexington!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home to stay in! Our family of 7 had a wedding in Concord and this was the perfect location for us. The home was very nice and very clean, a back yard that allowed outdoor privacy, a very quiet neighborhood, and John was more than helpful with our planning and during our stay in Lexington. Highly recommended!

Clean, great location and helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 loved our time in the Boston area and this house helped make our stay truly fantastic. The house is clean and well apportioned with comfy beds, 2 bathrooms and all the amenities of home. The owners were helpful and responded immediately to questions (like where the grilling utensils were). Since it is just outside Boston, it was the perfect place to wind down after a busy day of sightseeing.

Comfortable, well-equipped house, with friendly and supportive owners

  • 4 of 5

Four of us shared this comfortable house as a home base for our 50th college reunion. The house met all our needs and was conveniently located for all our comings and goings. The owners did everything they could to make our stay as smooth and pleasant as possible. While the house had all the coziness of a family residence, it felt welcoming and fully functional for us short-term visitors.

Beautiful home, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The home is better than the pictures let on. It was clean and comfortable. The hosts are so helpful in guiding you through the process. They stayed in constant contact the entire time we were there and made suggestions on how to make the most out of our vacation. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to stay near the Boston area. It was a short drive to and from the city and/or airport. It was wonderful getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city to the beautiful neighborhood for some peace and quiet. There is also an excellent minutemen museum that is worth checking out. I can't say enough wonderful things about the home and the hosts. They were great!

Great people to communicate with and always available to answer questions promptly. Everything you need to make your stay enjoyable and stress free. Highly recommended and would stay again in a heartbeat!!
