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.
