The SpaceI am a teacher, originally from England and my home and garden have a style that is a mix of New England and Old England. My daughter now lives in London and her newly decorated room is available for guests. I am a teacher and during the week I have to be at work by 7:30 so I leave the house at 7:15. This means I cannot offer breakfast but coffee and tea is available. I have a wonderful flower garden, very peaceful and serene and a wonderful place to sit and relax. Harvard Square and Boston are easily accessible. Mystic Lake is at the end of the street and Arlington Center is a 15 minute walk. My house is a Cape, cosy and peaceful. Guests have wireless access, and off street parking. Arlington boasts lots of great restaurants, two movie theaters, public transportation into Boston and easy access to some local beauty spots. Other Things to NoteThere is an overnight parking ban in Arlington so if you have a car you can park it in the driveway overnight.

The Space$150/night: Whole top floor (two bedrooms-a single and a double-with private bath and sitting room/office). You will enjoy a private space with your own bathroom. Comfy beds with puffy duvets, overhead fans, all linens provided. Wireless throughout. You will also find an assortment of teas and an electric kettle for your use. I've traveled a lot and know how much it means to have a cozy welcoming and comfortable place to stay. And whether it's been a ger (yurt) in Mongolia, a round thatched roof house by the seaside on the coast of Senegal, a hotel in Istanbul or an apartment in Paris, I like to know that there will be a pot of good coffee waiting when I wake up in the morning. I'll make sure you have coffee & tea in the morning and at the very least, a continental breakfast--with waffles or pancakes on the weekend! Guest AccessGuests have access to the entire third floor: study/office space and private bathroom, and bedrooms--as well as to a sitting room on the second floor. Interaction with GuestsDepends on the guests and on my schedule. Generally, I follow my guests' lead. My aim is to make people feel at home and to respect their privacy. The NeighborhoodThis is a very friendly neighborhood, safe and great for walking. There is just about everything you need within walking distance--restaurants, banks, dry cleaner, post office, drug store, coffee shops, and more. And we are close to public transportation--buses and commuter rail (1 stop into the city). West Medford is a nice neighborhood with lots of green space and the Mystic River and lakes just down the street (great for a swim in the summer, and nice for a brisk walk in winter). It's pleasant for walking or going for a run. Boston is a great city to visit and I have lots of tips for fun and interesting outings--walks in the city, historic tours and museums, boat rides to the Boston Harbor Islands in the summertime, restaurants, music and theater. You will find just about all you need within walking distance: banks, post office, dry cleaner, drugstore, pastry and coffee shops, pizza and sandwich places. Whole Foods is nearby, as are a number of wine stores. And West Medford is home to award winning Bistro 5 restaurant, as well as Emilianoz and Snappy Pattys, all within walking distance. A new vegan restaurant, Fruition, has just opened in the neighborhood, as well. Getting AroundWe are close (a 5-7 minute walk) to transportation into the city via commuter rail--just one stop into Boston, and are on several bus lines that lead to subway lines. If you are from out of town and have family in one of the area hospitals and are looking for a comfortable place to stay with easy access to the city, this is very convenient, with the commuter rail into the city just a short walk from the house. Buses to Davis Square (red line subway) and to Lechmere (green line subway) within a minute or two walk from the house. Other Things to NoteThis is not an ideal space for small children, as there is an open staircase leading up to the third floor.

The NeighborhoodThis is a charming residential neighborhood filled with older homes and flowering trees. We are a block away from the West Medford Commuter Rail stop. Restaurants, grocery stores, and a post office are all an easy walk away. Davis Square, Tufts, Arlington Center, Medford Center, and even Lechmere are each a bus ride away.

It also connects us to Ball Square, Magoun Square, and Union Square. Other Things to NoteThere is a small, older dog in residence. Please be kind to him!

The SpaceA perfect spot for the night! The "couch" is actually a captain's bed - a flat, slightly-narrower-than-twin-sized bed, rather than a couch with cushions. - I'll give you a washcloth, hand towel, and bath towel. - You're welcome to take a shower. (Note: it's a walk-in shower, without a bathtub) Shampoo and soap are in the shower. - Also in the shower is a shower seat -- if you don't need to sit while showering, please feel free to take it out and leave it on the floor of the bathroom while you shower. - Alewife T station is within walking distance, via the bike path (in daylight) or Fairmont St. (at night) - Note: the last few yards of the bike path are unlit at night, so you'll have to continue on Thorndike St. to Herbert St, turn right & walk one block to Fairmont St, turn right on Fairmont and walk until you see my little gray house on your right (just past my neighbor's big white house) - Bus routes on Massachusetts Avenue are within walking distance via Fairmont St. Guest AccessYou'll sleep in the living room, and have access to the bathroom and kitchen. The floor plan of the house is mostly open, but I'll be spending most of my time at the other end of the house. You're welcome to use the washing machine, in the basement - ask me about it. I give occasional voice lessons. At those times I'll have to ask for the living room area, since that's where the piano is! (Yes, you're welcome to play the piano when I don't have a student.) Interaction with GuestsI'm glad to chat, but I'm sure we'll both need our private times. If you need help or advice, please ask me... I'll do my best. The NeighborhoodLooks like country, close to town. Getting Around- Parking: The town of Arlington, MA doesn't permit overnight on-street parking. I have a driveway, and can make room for you to park in it... but if you're leaving your car here during the day, please move it to the street so I can drive my own car. - How to get here by T: Take the Red Line to Alewife Station. Exit at the front of the train, go upstairs to a platform where you'll see some shops, and head for the Passenger Pick-Up Area, which is to the right, up a further flight of stairs (or a ramp if you prefer), and outside. (Caution: do not use the elevator at the left end of the platform! - it will take you to a different part of the station, from which the following directions will be useless!) Continue to the street, and head right, into a tangle of Rt 2 off-ramps and an overpass. You'll cross a single-lane street (part of Rt 2). Walk along the nice bike path, over the little wooden bridge, while admiring Alewife Brook. The bike path continues under the Rt 2 overpass. Past the overpass, you will see a swamp to your right. Turn right as soon as the swamp lets you, onto a paved street (Thorndike Street), keeping the swamp to your right. (If you follow the bike path as far as a sign with gold letters welcoming you to Arlington, you've gone too far - you're past the swamp.) Walking along Thorndike St, you'll very quickly (before coming to any houses on your right) come to a dirt path running along a little stand of trees. In daylight the dirt path is the quickest way to my house. Take it - still keeping the swamp to your right. The first turn to your left will take you to Fairmont St. That first little grey house to your left is mine. At night you're better off staying on Thorndike to Herbert St. Turn right, then turn right onto Fairmont St. My house is the last one on the right. Other Things to NoteI'm disabled... standing and walking are hard for me. Please leave chairs empty, so I can sit when I need to. If you could help me replace the sheets on the bed before you leave, it would be a wonderful help! But it isn't something I require... after all, you're my guest in my home.

The SpaceIdeal space for a couple or a single traveler. Guest AccessAccess to pretty much everything except my office space off the livingroom (and of course, my bedroom). Interaction with GuestsI'm very flexible with interactions with you. I'll probably be around when you are here, but my schedule can get very busy so we may connect very little, depending. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is very quiet and safe and Arlington has turned into quite a gold mine of restaurants of just about every ethnicity you can imagine, and you've got the Capitol theater (movies) and the Regent Theatre (music, theater, movies). This is a great place to launch into any adventures you'll want to have in Cambridge, Somerville, Medford and Boston, or heading out of town, to Lexington and Concord. Getting AroundThe #77 bus takes you down Mass ave (5 minute walk from the front door), to Porter Square or Harvard Square where you can pick up the subway (the "T") and get anywhere throughout the city. Also you are very close to Alewife station. Other Things to NoteThere's a large driveway. My down stairs neighbors, a young married couple, are nice, cool. There is a TV but I have the very most basic cable.
