We wanted a family home in a suburb *very* close to Boston and with easy access to VT, ME & NH. We love to travel & are happy to have others enjoy the house while we are away. Our family loves the outdoors & sports with lots of biking, tennis, skiing, cross-country, jogging, and even sailing/canoing nearby at Spot Pond.

JenniferD purchased this house in 2001

Winchester has been fantastic -- so convenient to Boston/Cambridge and other regional sights and also a wonderful New England town. We've equipped our home with many amenities to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Huge kitchen/family room for large gatherings yet also many separate areas for peace & quiet.

The 2 king and 2 queen beds have highest quality memory foam mattresses and very comfortable, ample pillows and bedding.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. The owners met us to give us an orientation to the house and the audio-visual systems. The house met all of our needs, including a nice kitchen with high-end appliances and all of our wants such as a trampoline and Ping-Pong table. We would not hesitate to stay here again. The owners are very nice and went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our stay!

Incredible vacation home experience

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting vacation homes 12 years and this Boston area home is one of the best we have rented.

The location is excellent and allows easy travel in any direction. Winchester is a quaint and lovely little town.

Jennifer was easy to work with and helpful in EVERY. The home is beautiful; the surrounding yard and floral gardens are lush and peaceful as well as provided a tranquil setting for our family time together.

Pictures do not do the home justice; it is a lovely, spacious, and well appointed home. Attention has been given to every detail in the home. It was a real joy to spend our week in this home; we highly recommend renting this vacation home in the Boston area. Illinois family

Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing! It is beautiful and has everything you need for a fabulous stay - cookware, spices, towels, paper towels, just everything! The backyard trampoline, zip line, play structure, and hot tub were such a hit with the kids. Plenty of space throughout and excellent family gathering areas. The owners are friendly, gracious and super nice people. We highly recommend renting this home.

Beautiful Home for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We just had a fabulous 3-day family reunion in Winchester at this beautiful and comfortable house. The house is very well maintained, clean and in an excellent spot for enjoying Boston, Cambridge, getting to the airport etc. I especially liked the layout of the kitchen for our group dinners, the unique art & decorations throughout the house and the lovely gardens in the back yard. My sister, Colleen handled the booking and indicated the owners were well organized and nice to work with.

Summer family reunion - perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5
Our family gathered to celebrate my parents' 70th birthdays and this spot was perfect for us! We were comfortable in the spacious home that gave us room to spread out and accomodate all the sleeping needs of the babies and children. We spent several evenings as adults out on the peaceful & large patio among the abundant flowers enjoying the sunsets, water fountain, koi pond, and even the fire pit. The kids loved the swingset & climbing structure plus the hammock. The proximity to the city of Boston was great, too. Thanks for a lovely stay and hope to be back again!

Enjoy the comforts of this upscale home as your base to explore all that Boston and New England have to offer.

Winchester is the closest, nice suburb north of Boston. Our home is nearly adjacent to the 2000 acre Middlesex Fells state forest/reservation and also very close to the 2 major highways (I-93 & Route 128) so you can get anywhere very quickly. The commuter rail departs from town center for just 2 stops to North Station in Boston's financial district.

Peaceful, beautiful, yet vibrant setting with great proximity to all that Boston has to offer.

Southern Maine is also very near & dear to us. We spend a lot of time 90 minutes north in Biddeford Pool, ME which is just north of Kennebunkport (former President Bush's summer compound).
