Green Spaces: 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.
Stayed here for 4 nights in June what a wonderful place this is.
2 couple shared and it was ideal.
Everything is there for you it really is home from home. The owners have thought of everything and are there for you if needed but if not just let you get on with your holiday.
The location is amazing just a short underground ride from the centre of Boston and 2 min walk to the property, easy to get to/ from the airport using the underground.
Just 2 mins from the property in the brewery which has been renoveated to include a wonderful coffee shops ula and a wonderful restraunt bella luna both a must if staying here.
Cannot praise this wonderful property enough.
Exactly as advertised, the Arthouse was found to be well maintained and nicely updated, with good amenities and a comfortable interior; a great stay for five adults. Its convenience to the T Orange line (Stony Brook Station) is perfect for travelling to downtown and especially for Boston marathoners looking for quick and easy transport to the Boston Common buses (Chinatown station) and back home at the end of the race (Back Bay station). The Jamaica Plan neighborhood is safe, family friendly with a fine selection of local cafes/restaurants and local groceries. Owner Christine was great and easy to reach and provided us with local recommendations making our visit truly enjoyable. Definitely would recommend this property to others and would stay here again.
With the restaurants close by and subway an easy walk away this place was really great.
This was a last minute booking and was a great experience. Christine was very good to work with and the rental unit was beyond expectations!
Arthouse was great! Clean, spacious, convenient. We loved the proximity to Sam Adams, Bella Luna, the T...had everything we needed. Zipcar lot three houses away, several markets within walking distance, lots of character. Loved the T map shower curtain and extensive book of menus & rental guidelines. Thank you!
The home is a very comfortable 2 bedroom. Great location to Samuel Addams brewery and to the train. Parked our car upon arrival and didn't have to move it until we left. Would recommend to those who want to sight see everything without the hassle of driving
The house was very charming, well supplied and wonderfully clean. The owner was quick to respond to our queries. We enjoyed the closeness to the subway and an excellent coffee shop. But if you wish to spend an evening just vegging after city activities know that the cable channels are limited, and the signal is weak. Channels fade in and out. Also the couch is not the same as pictured, and is quite uncomfortable. Everything else was excellent, and we had a great time.
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.
