A good place to stay if visting the Boston Area

  • 5 of 5

I rented this because my Venturers (Part of the Boy Scouts(14-20 year old coeds)) wanted to go to the Boston area. We chose to stay here because it was a short distance from all the area we wanted to visit which included Boston, Salem and Concord/Lexington.

We didn't stay inside very much. The kitchen was nice and had everything needed. The bedrooms were fine. Working with the owner was fine. The only minor issue is the kitchen is slightly elevated and we all tripped once going into when we first got there.

Family Time Well Spent

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had our three children, and twin two year old granddaughters at this wonderful house for 4 days and nights. This was our first experience renting a house versus usually staying in hotel rooms, but by all being together, it made us feel like we were at home. The house was very clean, offered lots of space, and was close to everything. The beds were comfortable, and the bedding and pillows were very nice. Greg, the property owner, was easy to get hold of, and answered texts or phone calls immediately. I would definitely rent this home again. Thanks for making it available to us Greg.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 5 days in August. There were 7 of us (5 granddaughters) and there was plenty of room.

Well stocked kitchen. Loved breakfast on back deck. Very close to restaurants and grocery.

The best part was the owner. He could not have been more friendly, gracious or helpful.

Highly recommend.

Great Home for Our Family Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family gathering of 4 adult couples and one baby. Each couple had a private room and we had plenty of space to visit in the living room and cook meals in the kitchen. It was especially helpful that the house had spices and condiments - a real money saver. We not only explored downtown Boston, but also explored Melrose. It is a cute suberb and downtown was walking distance from the house. Thanks Greg!

A great find!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the weekend at this house. It was great, exactly as pictured. We had a family of 7 and there was more than enough space. The house was very clean and well taken care of. It was in a nice, safe neighborhood. The train station took less than 5 minutes to drive to and the trains were constantly running so we never had to wait more than a few minutes. It took about 20-25 minutes to get into Boston by train. The owner Greg was a pleasure to work with. He always responded to emails/texts within minutes. He even got in touch with me after we arrived to make sure everything was ok and to see if we needed anything. Great service! Great stay! I'd definitely recommend!
