We are a family of 6, (children 1, 4, 6, and 8), plus my mother in law was with us, and we spent a wonderful week in Barbara and Ed's home. Considering how many of us there were, we really had enough space, The home was clean, well set up, the beds were very comfortable, plenty of towels, and basically everything you might need was there- without it being cluttered! From the start, we had no problem getting, and staying, in contact with Barbara. She wrote back right away and answered any questions I might have.
Another great thing was how close it is to Boston. We could go into Boston to the museums, and still be home in time for the baby's nap, without spending hours in the car. Free passes to the Aquarium and to the Museum of Science were given to us from Barbara, which saved us lots of money. The only bad thing about the trip was that the weather never was warm enough to use the pool and my kids won't let me forget about it! Just another reason to come back again some day!
Thanks for the wonderful hospitality Barbara and Ed!
