Boston is a city filled with history and culture and features some of the most world renowed hospitals and institutions of higher learning. Our waterfront is busy and beautiful! Boston is often refered to as a 'walkable city' getting you to sites by either foot, train, trolley or subway. The cape and islands are either a short drive, ferry ride or bus ride away. One of our favorites is Martha's vineyard. Maine is an hour away and the outlets in either NH or MA are 45-60 minutes by car. A lot of our visitors like to tour Salem and check out the witch museum and harbor. For the children and adults the Children's Museum, Aquarium and Science Museums are a must!

You have the opportunity to purchase discount tickets to local area attractions. Just ask Cyndi! We also provide Charlie Cards for your first trip on the bus or train. Just replenish what you use for the next guest to get started.

Dear Cyndi and John,
We loved our stay here in your cozy escape such a short distance from the city. Sitting outside having coffee and watching the birds and our teenage children tumble of the hammock was great!

Love your art work, John. Thanks for the inspiration. You both were wonderful, helpful and we felt right at home with you and our apartment. What a great help having pre-loaded Charlie Cards and Delfino's was yummy-great food for reasonable prices.

Blessings and light,
business

I don't even know where to begin......you both have been the mot welcoming host Dave and I could have hoped for. When we packed up our truck, left our jobs and friends in CA, and drove east to Boston, we were praying our new chapter would be full of people such as yourselves. Allowing us to settle in for awhile and turning your little apartment into our home (for a little bit) has been a wonderful greeting to New England. As we move on to our next stop, we will remember our time here fondly....especially our hollering matches when our Broncos played your Pats. Next time we're in your neck of the woods, we know who to call. Good luck with all of your pursuits and we look forward to meeting up with you again soon!

Your place was "wicked awesome"! Perfectly cozy and we felt right t home. In fact one day we didn't even leave the house until noon but opted for a coffee in the hot tub instead! Thank you for providing us with so many useful tourist information packages; from the maps, to the Charlie card, you went above and beyond.
Thanks for being wonderful and generous hosts!! Hope to see you again!

We loved our cozy basement sanctuary! It had all the necessary amenities, plus some extras! We used the hot tub every night after a long day out exploring Boston. It was a great location if you have a car as well as parking is free on the street so we left our car and explored by transit. Cynthia and John were great hosts, explaining everything clearly and helping us when we couldn't figure out the pellet stove! (Thanks John)! They went above and beyond, providing tons of tourist information and even leaving us "Charlie cards" for transit with a free ride on them! The bed was super comfy and with the fire going it felt like we were at a little cottage! I would highly recommend staying with Cynthia and John - take extra note of all the beautiful artwork on the walls....John is one heckuva talented fella!

This was a clean and comfortable VRBO. It has a kitchenette with micro and hot plate for cooking and all the amenities of a full kitchen. The apartment is a 3-minute walk to the bus stop; then, a 10-minute ride to Forrest Hills METRO station from where a 15-minute ride puts you in the heart of downtown Boston. The house is situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood and there is ample road parking available. The unit is cozy, it has excellent TV coverage, and there is a washer and dryer available if needed. We found this VRBO to be nicely situated for touring Boston via public transportation and for touring other areas by car. There are a number of restaurants available in nearby Roslindale town and adequate markets are also close by. John and Cynthia are excellent and friendly hosts. They assured our comfort and provided us with a wealth of information. We recommend this VRBO to couples or couples with one or two small children. We would return on a future trip to Boston.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Families with Young Children

Map

Car: not necessary

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Miniature golf

Golf: We are about a 10 minute walk to the George Wright Golf Course. It was designed by Donald Ross in 1938 and is well maintained by the City. It was named Best Municipal Course in MA and 14th best in the US according to Golf Digest. In 2009 it was the MGA ameturer qualifying site.

Ski: The Blue Hill Mountains, the highest point in Boston not only offers great hiking trails but also skiing and snow boarding. It is a 15 minute drive to this wonderful area. When we don't have snow in the winter they make it. You can see some of the slopes from our home and see them making the snow.
