Our extended family stayed at this property for a week over the summer and couldn't have been more pleased. We found the property to be just what was listed: a beautiful, stately historic home with plenty of room for all of us, surrounded by lovely, lush grounds in a charming town close to Boston. The owner graciously answered all of our questions and gave us great local tips like a delicious nearby Indian restaurant and when was the best time to go swimming at Walden Pond in nearby Concord (which we did!). Gorgeous kitchen, beautiful deck, lots of seating, incredibly kid-friendly. We were a 30-minute drive from the amazing New England Aquarium in Boston, loved our time at Plimouth Plantation, and also explored Minuteman State Park and Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House in Concord. One day we took the commuter train and subway into Boston (the station was less than a ten-minute walk from the house) and walked the Freedom Trail. A great place for families looking to explore Boston as well as its surrounding historic sites.
