Your comfort and pleasure are important to us. We can compile a list of attractions if you let us know why you are visiting. (Are you dropping off your child at Harvard? Check out the molten chocolate cake and creme brulee at Finale in Harvard Square! Do you have young children? A new Boston-area LEGOland just opened this spring! Are you interested in glass-blowing? The glass-blown flower exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History will glass-blow your mind!) We will greet you at noon on check-in day to hand off the keys, answer questions, and be sure you have everything you need. We are within walking distance of two grocery stores, but if you want to send a grocery list in advance, we'll stock the fridge for your first night, save receipts, and you can reimburse us for the food. If you are treating your spouse to a wedding anniversary trip, we can set up the master bedroom suite with candles, rose petals--and champagne! If you are celebrating your child's birthday, we can help arrange decorations and a cake. Please just let us know how we can make your trip a special one.
RATE UPDATE: We are now booking for New England foliage visits and most autumn holiday weekends, including Thanksgiving. Please note that some holidays have slightly higher booking rates. We are also booking for Patriot's Day Weekend, which is the same as the Boston Marathon Weekend. We're also booking for Harvard/MIT Commencement weeks. Thank you for your interest!
