I stayed in this house for two weeks last summer with my husband and two boys. We had a wonderful time. I was teaching in Boston at the time, and the commute was a breeze - short walk to the station to get the train into North Station, and coming back was also easy . The house is very comfortable and well-appointed. I love to cook, and so was especially pleased with how well the kitchen was organized. There's a grill outside which we used multiple times. We were there over the fourth of July and enjoyed the parade in town. We didn't get to meet Hughes, but his wife Francoise was great - very polite and helpful. My husband and I still talk about the time we spent there - and he's a hard one to please!
