The SpacePrivate room in a charming New England-style 'Cape Cod', modern residence on a quiet cul-de-sac tucked in behind and above route 20 near downtown Northborough and only moments away from major MA highways including routes 495, Mass Pike (90), highway 290, route 9 and 20.
Rental is a private bedroom with separate bath/shower, toilet and sink and free parking for one car. The room is equipped with a queen-sized bed, desk and closet. WiFi included. Steps away from Rte 20 and a Dunkin' Donuts, four miles from the Northborough Town Center Mall (Starbucks, Wegman's, BJ's, Dick's and dozens of other fine shops). We are also about ten miles from the Worcester (pronounced 'whu-ster') city center, Clark University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, College of the Holy Cross and Assumption College.
Our house is only four miles from the Westborough stop on the Worcester Commuter Rail Line (parking is $4/day) putting visitors an hour from Boston's famous South Station and the sights and activities available in downtown Boston. Providence, RI is only forty minutes away by car.
Our home is very private and centrally located, only minutes from the sights and sounds of urban Massachusetts and Rhode Island. It offers a comfortable respite from busy lives and busy days.

We welcome international guests, those with young children or those with special needs. As guests come and go, we appreciate knowing their return plans and like to welcome them back (if we are around). Likewise, we let them know our plans as it pertains to comings and goings and home security. The NeighborhoodOne of the best features of living in Northborough is New England's largest Wegman's store. The first in MA, and the largest grocery store in the state, my husband says that this grocery store is 'the kind of grocery store that Walt Disney would have built if he wanted to be in the grocery business.'
We are only a few miles from fast food outlets including Dunkin'Donuts (walking distance), Chick-fil-A, three McDonald's, Starbucks, Wendy's, BurgerKing, iHop, Qboda and Subway. Nearby sit-down restaurants include Bertucci's (fast fact: worldwide headquarters is in Northborough), Tavern-in-the-Square, Wegman's grocery with buffet, Romaine's, CJ's Steakhouse and many others.
On the west-end of town, the Northborough Crossing outdoor mall includes BJs, Michaels, Dick's Sporting Goods, Goldsmith and many other national retailers. At the north end, the classic Solomon Pond Mall boasts an Apple store, Regal theatre, Sears and Macy's. Getting AroundNorthborough public transit is designed to move commuters in the mornings to Boston, and return during the evenings. The Westborough commuter rail station (MBTA's Worcester/Framingham line) is five miles away. Availability of Uber drivers can be spotty, but are only a tap away.
Parking is normally available on the property or on our cul-de-sac.
The best way to get here from Logan International airport is to rent a car, drive the Mass Pike (route 90) west, get off at exit 12 (Framingham) and drive west on route 9. At route 135 (exit on the right) drive north to intersect with route 20 at the Northborough town center. Depending on weather and traffic conditions, this could take as little as 40 minutes. The last mile location details are available only to reserved guests.
