Green Space: Jamaica Plain, often referred to in the 19th century as 'the Eden of America,' is one of the greenest neighborhoods in the city of Boston. The community contains or is bordered by a number of jewels of the Emerald Necklace park system designed in the 19th century by Frederick Law Olmsted: Olmsted Park, from Route 9 at the Riverway south to Perkins Street, including Leverett Pond, Willow Pond, and Ward's Pond... Jamaica Pond has 60 acres (240,000 m2) of surface area and is the largest and deepest body of fresh water in Boston... Arnold Arboretum is a 265-acre (1.1 km2) world-renowned plant collection maintained by Harvard University, and contains Peter's Hill, the highest elevation in Jamaica Plain at 235 feet (72 m)... Franklin Park is a 527-acre (2.1 km2) park (the largest in the city) and holds the Franklin Park Zoo (the largest zoo in New England), White Stadium and the William J. Devine Golf Course.

Public transportation: The Green Line 'E' Train streetcar service terminates at Heath Street and South Huntington Avenue. Bus service continues along South Huntington Avenue, Centre Street, and South Street to its terminus at the Forest Hills Station. The Orange Line rapid transit train line runs below street level through the middle of Jamaica Plain, with stops at Jackson Square, Stony Brook, Green Street, and Forest Hills. Buses connect Jamaica Plain with West Roxbury, Hyde Park, and suburban Dedham and Walpole to the south, and the rest of Boston by street routes. Forest Hills Station is a major transportation hub and is within walking distance of the Arnold Arboretum and Forest Hills Cemetery.

Accommodations: Arthouse 2 has two bedrooms, one larger than the other. The unit is best suited for one to four person occupancy but feel free to inquire about a couple extra. We're painting the whole unit so we'll be posting new photos soon - available September 1st, 2011 just in time for parents visiting their kids at college and leaf peeping season!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Six of us stayed here for a week in august (4 adults and 2 children , ages 8 and 4). We all felt at home imediately as the owners have thought of everything - lots of clean linens, well-equipped kitchen, even some toys and books for the kids. The house was clean and comfortable and we made use of the cute back yard as well.

For us, this was great value for money. If we had stayed in a hotel, we would have needed 2 rooms and the kids would not have the space to move around or go outside. Here, we could cook our own meals (great grocery stores nearby), enjoy a glass of wine in the back yard, go to the park across the road, or head to the T-station down the road (3 minutes away) to tour around Boston. Really the perfect set-up. We love Boston and will definitley contact Christine again to arrange a stay.

THIS PLACE WAS AMAZING. I WILL STAY HERE AGAIN.

  • 5 of 5
I was very pleased with my stay. Christine was very helpful and made the process really simple for me. The proximity to the subway was great and more importantly, everything was within walking distance. I will stay here again in my next trip to Boston. I really enjoyed my time here and the condo was no different. Thank you Christine for everything. You are the best!!!

EXPERIENCE THE ECLECTIC FLAVOR OF JAMAICA PLAIN

  • 4 of 5
Our group took full advantage of the place and location. Located on the second floor, cathedral ceilings, skylights, wonderful natural light! The deck was great for morning coffee, and chatting at the end of the day. Did not do any cooking, since there are so many places nearby, as well as trying restaurants in Boston Harbor. Daily walks to Centre St through the quaint neighborhood. We also enjoyed jogging to Jamaica Pond. Getting to Historical Boston was so convenient! The T is literally a block away through the park entrance in front of the house. Boston 360 experience

SPACIOUS, CLEAN AND QUIET

  • 3 of 5
It was nice to spread out after touring Boston all day. The unit was clean and quiet and handy to the "T" as advertised. Although the neighborhood seemed a bit run down, the local restaurant that we tried was good.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you feedback, I'm glad that you enjoyed the rental. However my 58 (condos 240435 and 386983) other guests who have written 5 star rave reviews about the neighborhood would disagree. I do admit the neighborhood is full of hipsters, hippies and unique artists, one would have to appreciate urban environments and all it has to offer including diversity to appreciate JP. With the Wholefoods market selling organic, local and sustainable foods within walking distance and our local cafe charging $10 for a yummy healthy sandwich it has become somewhat of a meca for young professional yet environmentally friendly families. Trip advisor rates JP with 4.5 stars and Yelp reviews our restaurants at no less than 4.5 stars.
This Boston Globe article summarizes it:
"JAMAICA PLAIN — There’s nothing ordinary about Jamaica Plain, or “JP” as it’s called, a dynamic Boston neighborhood located southwest of downtown.
The commercial district, along Centre and South streets, reflects Jamaica Plain’s eclectic community of artists, writers, musicians, activists, young families, and indie-business owners. Fine dining and casual restaurants serve foods of Cuba, Scotland, India, Lebanon, Cambodia, Japan, and other international fare. Boutiques sell everything from kitchen gadgets to funky vintage attire to one-of-a-kind artisan crafts."
Hard to judge a book by its cover in a very short 3 night stay. You would have to love city life to enjoy your stay here!

NEVER DOING A HOTEL AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
Loved the Arthouse vacation rental in Boston. Great location, lots of space, way better than getting a hotel. Christine was super helpful in the email exchanges leading up to our stay. I highly recommend this rental and next time I visit Boston, I will be staying here again. Thanks!!

GREAT PLACE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at Arthouse 2. The upstairs apartment was sunny, spacious, and all the furnishings were very comfortable. The Kitchen is well set up with plenty of room for many people to be working at once. Jamaica Plains is a great town and the orange line train station is a right around the corner. Christine, the owner was very helpful and communicative prior to our visit as well as when we arrived and had questions. Great place....will return often.

WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Arthouse 2 just last week (1st week in Oct.). There were 3 of us, myself, my husband and our adult daughter. We loved the location. It's so conveniently close to the subway, and restaurants.

We enjoyed our time in Boston. This property's close proximity to the subway made it easy to get around anyplace you might want to go. We didn't use a car at all. The owner was very easy to contact to make all the rental arrangements. Our stay was smooth, easy, and lots of fun. The house itself is comfortable, and spacious with lovely modern interior decor. Also? Because the house features some really intimate, but tasteful Drag Queen art, we were inspired to catch a show. We had a blast.

I would recommend staying at Arthouse 2 in Jamaica Plain to anyone. I will stay there again if I need to make a trip to the Boston area.

In 1997, Jamaica Plain had the third highest percentage of tree cover of all Boston neighborhoods and the highest percentage in the Heart of the City. Jamaica Plain is nestled between tremendous open space resources, including Franklin Park, the Arnold Arboretum, the Forest Hills Cemetery, Jamaica Pond, the Allandale Woods Urban Wild, and the Southwest Corridor Park, as well as numerous other smaller parks, tot-lots, and playgrounds. Jamaica Plain contains or is adjacent to more than 1,250 acres of open space.

Jamaica Plain is served by a rapid transit line that runs through the center of the neighborhood along the Southwest Corridor. The Orange Line that originates at the Forest Hills MBTA Station in southern Jamaica Plain includes three more stops in the neighborhood, and extends to downtown Boston and beyond.

Other Activities: Historic walking tours, Sam Adams Brewery Tour
