    The SpaceThe cottage is back for the 2016 summer! This is an independent building on our property all to yourself! It was built in the 1940s so the fact that it is rustic is part of its charm! This private cottage has a room with a queen size bed, sitting area with smart tv and wi-fi, an eat-in kitchen, and bathroom with a claw foot bathtub/shower. We lived in Mexico for years and that inspired the colors! It is perfect for visitors to the Boston area--right on the 57 and express bus lines to Boston and off the Mass Pike. New heating system! Wi-fi and off-street parking are provided. We live in the main house. NOTE: If you don't have a car or are arriving late and would like us to stock some groceries, send us a list and we can have it for you when you arrive! (The cottage is stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and other basics.) Guest AccessThere is plenty of overnight on street parking. If you are leaving your car longer please arrange it with us. A yard area has a hammock and place to relax in the summer. There is a laundry room in the main house basement. A key is provided. Interaction with GuestsWe are area teachers who love to share info about the area. We can offer guidance, if needed, for local visits, groceries, etc. We also respect the privacy of our guests and can give you as much space as you need! The NeighborhoodNewton Corner is a lovely residential area of mostly single and two-family homes. It is within walking distance of churches, synagogues, coffee shops, and area restaurants. There is a great yoga studio four blocks away and the Newton YMCA and Oak Square YMCA are both within a half mile. Boston and Cambridge are a bus ride away or a short drive. We are also a half mile from the river bike path. We live on a busy street with a bus line but the cottage is tucked away in the backyard and is quite private and quiet. Getting AroundWe are not in downtown Boston but it is 7 miles away. The 57 bus that goes from Kenmore Square Boston to Watertown stops on the corner from our house. It runs regularly all days. Express buses go to downtown Boston and Copley Square during commuting hours. We are 15 minutes from Copley Square driving and 25 minutes from the airport (on non-commuting hours!) Harvard Square is a short drive away. To get there by bus you would need to take two buses. For your convenience, you can purchase Charlie Cards from us pre-loaded with $5. They will get you where you want to go and you can add value to them as you need to. One day and 7 day LINK passes can be purchased at various locations and are great for the visitor who wants to see all the area sites. For more info please see the MBTA! Other Things to NoteOn the listings page for the cottage is a map. If you click on the map I have listed a bunch of local places I recommend for shopping, site seeing, eating, etc. I have notes about each one if you click on its bubble. If you stay with us, please review any of the places in the guest book in the cottage, so we can tell others what you liked (or didn't)! There is recycling in Newton.

Interaction with GuestsWe know that when traveling, sometimes you crave human interaction in your day and sometimes you want a break from it all. We want to accommodate your needs, so please tell us how we can help. We tend to be very social, with lots of friends locally, some of whom you may meet when they stop by for tea or to split the farmshare box. Your host: Melissa has traveled to more than 20 countries for business and pleasure, on five continents, which you'll see reflected in our home's art and books. She is an independent management consultant and during the workday has a varied schedule between her home office and local meetings and events. Her boyfriend, who has his own residence, enjoys meeting guests when he visits. The NeighborhoodOur location is at the edge of small commercial zone within a primarily residential neighborhood. We love that there are lots of trees and that we have the combination of easy parking, public transit, and walkability. Within three blocks are several restaurants and a small grocery store, where they make their own Greek yogurt. Extend your walk to 10-15 minutes and you'll have a dozen or more restaurants -- Sofra, Shangri-La, and Savinos, for instance -- plus ice cream, coffee, clothing, antiques, and gift shops (must see: Wescott Mercantile). Also, studios for yoga and other exercise. Melissa's favorite place in Boston is the Mount Auburn Cemetery, located about halfway between the house and Harvard Square. It's a beautiful arboretum-like space, with fantastic views of the Boston area from its Washington Tower. "Recognized as one of the most significant designed landscapes in the country, Mount Auburn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2003." It's a favorite spot for urban birders, and I've seen foxes, turkeys, bats, rabbits, and turtles. (URL HIDDEN) Getting AroundThe #73 bus line is one block away, taking you two miles to Harvard Square and the subway (the "T"). You'll have a parking spot in a shared driveway; there is also lots of on-street parking, free, from 7am-1am. The airport is 20 minutes away in light traffic and an hour or so via public transit (silver line to red line to #73 bus). Recommended smartphone apps: Catch The T, xtBus, Lyft, Uber. ***Note about parking: There is ample street parking from 7am to 1am, for free. Driveway space is available adjacent to the house for overnight and most other times. It is in "serial" so your car will be parked behind one or two other cars, and we will coordinate moving it as necessary. Other Things to NoteThis is a "shoes off" household, with hardwood floors throughout and rugs in key locations (like your bedside). After leaving your shoes by the apartment door, help yourself to slippers in the basket there.

    The SpaceThe apartment is more than half of the first floor of a grand victorian house, built in 1859, that used to occupy the entire city block where it's located. It has 11-foot ceilings, two (non-working) marble fireplaces and a living room with walnut paneling and butler's pantry. A great place to stay while exploring Boston and Cambridge. Perfect for a Beantown vacation, visiting colleges or an academic sabbatical. Your patio, right next to the front door, would be a perfect place to enjoy breakfast or an evening glass of wine. There's a small park nearby for a short walk, and a bike path along the Charles River for more exercise. Guest AccessThe apartment has its own entrance and its own off-street parking spot (second space on request). Interaction with GuestsWe live in another apartment in the same house. The rental unit has its own entrance, so we don't need to interact with the guest unless requested. We're happy to provide guidance about Watertown or the Boston area, and we're here to help with anything else you might need during your stay. Dan is a Boston-area native and Sarah has lived here since 1980, so we can help with planning activities in and around the city. The NeighborhoodWatertown, just west of Boston, is a small, quiet town of two- and single-family homes. There's very little traffic in our part of town. It's very convenient to downtown Boston, to Cambridge and to Route 128. There are many nice restaurants within a mile radius. You can walk to Watertown Square, where there are many amenities of a small downtown. The Charles River is a great place to explore. Getting AroundThere's an express bus to Downtown and busses to Harvard, Kenmore and Central Squares. Public transit takes you easily to Fenway Park, the Museum of Fine Arts, Harvard, MIT and Boston University. You can drive to Harvard Square or downtown Boston in less than 15 minutes. Or borrow one of our bikes. Other Things to NoteContinental breakfast provided. We'll supply makings for coffee and tea, milk, yogurt, granola and toast. We have a friendly golden retriever, though he never goes in the rental unit (which is completely pet-free). You might see him in our fenced-in back yard and he's always available for informal canine companionship! Our Tiny House, in the side yard, could house two additional guests or be used as an inspirational studio or office (for an additional fee of $75/night). Seasonal use only as it is not heated for winter use.

The NeighborhoodBelmont is a happy family friendly little town right outside of Boston. It is super safe and filled with parks. It has great transportation in and out of the city. There are awesome restaurants a short walk down the street including an award winning bakery, pizza, and Armenian food. Getting AroundWe have a open spot for parking in our small driveway. Park on the left hand side. There is officially no street parking in Belmont but an un-written rule is to put a piece of paper over your license plate identifying you as a guest of 58 Newton St - MOST of the time there won't be any ticketing - but NOT a guarantee. Other Things to NotePlease be respectful of our neighbors upstairs they are AWESOME neighbors and we don't want to spoil anything.

To get to MIT: you can take the 73 bus to the red line and then the red line to Kendall/MIT (perhaps 30 minutes, maybe less). My place is not convenient to Longwood Medical Area (BWH, BI, HMS), it would take probably about an hour by the public transit, and sometimes longer. Parking: None available, as street parking is only available during the day (not overnight). More Details: You will be in the master bedroom which is on its own floor, with its own bathroom, no tub.

      The SpaceNice and bright private room in Attic, full bath, individual fridge, WI FI access ,smart TV, AC. Note that there are doors on the side walls's room. they are used as winter storage but the space behind one door will be designated as the guest closet. There is a built in cabinets tall white cabinets in bath that shall not be used by the guest. Since I do not rent long therm I believe guests will not need it and is used as storage. Guest AccessYou are welcome to enjoy a glass of wine on large deck behind the house, on a lang chair on front deck or garden. You can cook a few times a week but as a family we can not have the kitchen used everyday. There is a fridge and a microwave in the room. Please, do not feel unwelcome if you need to come down to the kitchen. Interaction with GuestsMy husband's office is on the attic, but he usually comes home at 7PM. He also likes to practice his base guitar and once a month he may have a friend rehearsing with a guitar. My daughter has a drums set up in the attic but she will go there no more than twice a week during the afternoon. Other than that we are a small family and you'll have privacy since room is in the attic. The laundry room is upstairs and that's basically the only reason that makes me go up there. The NeighborhoodThis is a very safe neighborhood and the beautiful bike and path walk on the Charles River is priceless. The house is on a dead end street. Behind the house there is a tennis & basketball court and a hockey/ice skating rink. You can also go sledding ride on winter, right behind the house. Please ask me for one of our bikes to take a trip to Harvard square or downtown Boston. Getting AroundThere is a bus basically to anywhere you wish to go. Express bus to financial district and copley square in downtown Boston, direct bus to Harvard, Kenmore Square/Boston University, boston College, Central square. Buses connect with Red line or green line, Longwood Medical Area and Shopping Malls. Other Things to NoteReservation period up to 45 days only since I often get guest from overseas and like to have the place available. If you are staying longer than 15 days, I'd ask that you clean your room and change beds or allow me to do it.
