The room is at the top of the house, with a panoramic view of the hillside, majestic trees, and Boston Harbor. It is fully furnished; the shared kitchen is fully equipped; rent includes WI-FI, utilities, laundry facilities, easy on street parking. Bathrooms (three of them) and common areas (two living rooms, big balcony, eat-in kitchen, front and back yards and deck with grille) are shared. Ocean views from most windows, ocean breezes, high ceilings and wood floors, crown mouldings, carved fireplaces, and custom Victorian decor distinguish this charming home. People have compared it to the Weazely's house in Harry Potter--something fascinating around every corner, with books, games, and artwork left behind by the world travelers, artists, engineers and medical people who have lived here. The house combines the homey comfort of a vintage farm house (it was a wedding present from the farmer who owned the hill to his daughter, in 1880, and still has the farmhouse-style kitchen) with the elegance of art nouveau-style decor in the bedrooms and shared areas--paintings, elegant carved fireplaces, colored glass and bay windows, and more. It was built at a time when architects wanted to celebrate local resources such as fine-grained varieties of wood, abundant light, and flexible uses of space and whimsical exterior color. There are inspiring views of the harbor islands and the city skyline and of huge leafy trees; large balconies to relax on with Breughel-like views of historic houses marching down to the bay; you can watch sailboats floating on the harbor in the distance or see the city lights blinking on at night, or just watch the blue jays and cardinals play nearby in the giant trees.
We have more than one room available, so we can usually accomodate a group in the main part of the house, with ample facilities for you to cook and eat together in the shared kitchen. There is also a separate apartment available; it is more modern in decor, with a private kitchen, entrance, bathroom, sitting room, and deck, suitable for one or two people.

Reviews of this property
Mein Mann und ich waren für zwei Nächte bei Jessica in Boston. Wir wurden sehr nett von Jessica in ihrem wunderschönen grünen Haus empfangen. Sie gab uns wertvolle Tipps für Unternehmungen und gute Restaurants in der Nähe. Das Haus ist sehr sauber, gemütlich eingerichtet und beinhaltet alles, was man benötigt. Die Bahn ist fußläufig erreichbar und man gelangt schnell in die Stadt.
No vimos a la anfitriona en ningun momento,pero nos dios magnificas indicaciones para llegar a la casa. Todo estaba limpio y bien organizado los unicos peros el camino hasta la casa desde el metro es algo duro para quien tenga las piernas mal como yo la cuesta que hay que subir ajajja una vez en el metro llegas rapidisimo a todo y lo segundo las almohadas.
Gracias por todo repentiriamos sin dudarlo.
Nachdem die Buchung völlig reibungslos funktioniert hat, ging es genauso mit der Anreise weiter.
Jessica hatte uns im Vorfeld die genaue Wegbeschreibung vom Airport Boston Logan geschickt, so dass das Haus nicht zu verfehlen war.
Im Zimmer lagen bereits alle Handtücher und ein Ordner mit allen Informationen zu den Möglichkeiten (Essen/Trinken, Ausflüge, Anbindungen, Hausregeln,...) vorhanden.
Speziell hervorzuheben ist noch die Hilfsbereitschaft Jessica's und das wunderschöne, alte Haus, was wirklich sehr gemütlich ist.
Le logement se situe dans un quartier résidentiel, proche des moyens de transport. La chambre était propre et agréable. L'accueil chaleureux, Jessica qui parle parfaitement bien français, a été une excellente conseillère pour la visite de la ville ainsi qu'une aide précieuse pour régler nos problèmes de bagages ! Une hôtesse souriante et disponible. Nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir.

We had a wonderful time in Boston, part of that is owed to Jessica and the lovely house she created for guests. It was a very cozy place and my friend and I enjoyed staying there. Jessica gave us a nice introductory tour through the house and had all kinds of tips ready for us to help us make the most of our weekend in Boston. On the desk in the room we found a map, directions to the nearest subway station, recommendations for things to do and places for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The bedroom was cozy and clean and had this lovely view of the sea. The bed was very comfortable and big enough for two people and the bathroom that we shared with the other rooms on the floor was nice and clean as well. My favorite part of the house, though, was that small living room with the lights and a really, really soft carpet - such a beautiful room to just sit and enjoy a cup of tea in after a long day walking around Boston.
Thank you so much for the lovely place and your hospitality, Jessica!
Great accommodation. House with charm. Leaves nothing to wish for. Quiet, clean and cozy. Train station in walking distance. Jessica is a wonderful host. We enjoyed making her aquaintance.
I really enjoyed my stay in Boston. Nice house and clean rooms. The city center can be reached via public transport within 20 minutes.
Jessica is a lovely host. The house is charming, and handy location.
The room and the house in general were very nice to stay in. Even though Jessica was not here to great us, she did every thing to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The house is very close to a subway station and close to the center of Boston. This is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting the city. I highly recommand it !
