$1,100/month Gracious furnished room with private bath and access to kitchen - Jamaica Pond Views Description: Room is furnished with fireplace and view of the Jamaica Pond. Separate bath/jacuzzi and access to kitchen. Belongs to a grand historical Victorian located on Boston's Emerald necklace (corner of Pond Street and Jamaica way across from the Jamaica Pond boathouse). The house was originally built in 1862 by a Civil war colonel Dewey and completely updated and remodeled by Mr. DuMond keeping the architectural features of the original house. What we love about the home is its esthetic feeling i.e., the conservatory, panoramic view of Jamaica Pond, tasteful gardens, convenient location, access to public transportation and proximity to 5,000 acres of public parks. Heat, electricity, AC, cable TV and wireless are included. Short or longer term lease. There is ample parking. No Smoking.

The Space Designed like a 'TinyHouse' in the country (with central air & heat) the magic of this place is in its urban setting, usability, cleanliness, accessibility, comfort and beauty. Roomy for one person, perfect for two. If you come with a vehicle, we offer a designated, off-street parking spot. Public transportation? A short 2 1/2 city block walk to the Orange line at Stony Brook Station, a 12 minute train ride to Back Bay or high speed to the heart of downtown Boston. Only a 2 minute walk to City Feed & Supply (which offers the best neighborhood coffee, healthy staples, awesome sandwiches & wonderful people) an 8 minute walk to Whole Foods Market, a quick 1/2 hour train ride to the renowned Harvard Square, and easily accessible to the South End nightlife. When it's time to come 'home', walk through your private patio and garden. It's lovely at night with blue lights to guide you. The pink trim & wood shingles evoke a country retreat, while the gentle sounds of the Orange line and occasional laughter from a high neighboring porch-deck reminds you that you're actually mere minutes from the many varied delights Boston has to offer. Walk through the entry door and it's another world. A tiny garden apartment, this space has light, quiet, and maximum efficiency. Located down from and attached to our cottage, with its own separate entrance, we offer use of a washer/dryer (free) and all the amenities of a high-end hotel, while enjoying a home-nest away from home. A beautiful bathroom with a 3/4 sized claw foot tub, shower and copper sink, soft 100% cotton freshly laundered robes, blow dryer, delightful soap & shampoo, and fresh clean towels, a cozy bedroom with a reasonably sized closet, wonderful queen size bed, fresh cotton linens, free wifi and television with an AppleTV (Netflix included), a tiny kitchen table, a fully equipped mini-kitchenn with all the appliances & kitchen utensils, international AC adapter, small lock-box for your valuables, basically anything that will make your stay what you want it to be. Guest Access This magical Urban Oasis is connected to our Cottage. Your private patio and entry are at the back of the building and we live above and enter from the front. We are myself: Andrea, my 16 year old daughter, our Great Dane (!) Tzeitel, and our cat: Merlin. Merlin is an inside & outside cat, and while he loves to greet visitors in the driveway, the apartment is (and has been) an animal free zone. Although we are quiet and considerate, and our dog is a Dane - so she barely makes a sound - occasionally guests have reported being aware of some sounds from the white-sound-barrier & temperature control fan that never stops, and the pipes running water. There is a door at the far end of your apartment hallway leading to the washing machine, dryer, & mini-kitchen. (Full laundry services offered for additional fee.) There is a wall & door to separate your mini-kitchen from my personal studio space, please be respectful. You have access to a coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, hot plate, & mini-fridge. We ask that you please clean up after yourself if you decide to cook. Our Oasis is easy walking distance from the many excellent culinary choices that Jamaica Plain has to offer, and only a short bike trip, train ride or drive from a plentitude of restaurants to satisfy the most stringent foodie, the quick bite adventurer, and anyone in-between. Interaction with Guests Our interaction with you is entirely mediated by your desires. We love to tell you about the hidden delights to be found in our city, direct you to places and activities that meet your needs, share stories, and/or whatever else might make your stay more wonderful, and we are just as happy to simply help you plan your arrival, provide you with printed materials, guides, emergency contact information, and disappear(URL HIDDEN) Our goal is to provide you a simple, magical and deeply satisfying visit! The NeighborhoodAhhh...Jamaica Plain, Boston. This is (honestly) the nicest, most eclectic, beautiful, and interesting section of the city. Lots of green, interesting architecture, parks, the Emerald Necklace bike and walking path, Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Pond, excellent public transportation, sweet driving, easy parking, kid, elderly, and diversity friendly, along with restaurants that range from local health food to ethnic delights, and everything in between. The thing I love about my neighborhood is that no matter who you are, what language you speak, what job you do, your political inclinations, your passions & interests, your degree of desire for interaction, your economic circumstance, the purpose of your visit, or any other defining characteristic, you will never be the 'only one'. Stand at the Stony Brook Train station (4 minute walk) and you'll see briefcases and suits on their way to the financial district, moms with strollers, dog walkers with leashes, artists with portfolios, builders with tool boxes, and many others just doing their lives. There is a place for everyone here and you can feel it. Getting Around** Public Transportation from the airport lands you about a 4 minute walk from your Urban Oasis ** Cabs from the airport run about 35 to 40 dollars, take about 14 minutes (without traffic) and can drive right to your door ** Private parking space directly in front of our Urban Oasis for a vehicle ** 2 minute walk to neighborhood coffee and market: City Feed & Supply ** 4 minute walk to Stony Brook Station, Orange Line ** 15 Minute Orange Line Train to Back Bay ** 1/2 hour Train to Harvard Square, Cambridge ** 8 minute walk to #39 bus ** Easy 10 to 15 minute walking distance to Banks, Post Office, Shopping and the center of Jamaica Plain ** 8 minute walk to Whole Foods Market ** It takes about 25 minutes, using public transportation, to go from The Pink Room to Fenway Park. ** 1/2 mile (about a 10 minute walk) to Sam Adams Brewery ** There are plenty of cabs to call, UBER, Lyft, Hubway for bikes (etc.) Other Things to NoteWhat do you love to do? Whatever the purpose for your visit, whether business, family, medical, exploration & pleasure, sports, or whatever else brings you to Boston, we will respectfully & happily greet you, and, if you want us to, gratefully assist you in finding something wonderful to experience during your visit. After you book a stay in our Urban Oasis and before you arrive, I will send you my "Particulars" letter. PLEASE READ THIS and contact me with any questions or concerns. AND PLEASE NOTE THE GPS ADDRESS & DIRECTIONS you use to find your way here. ARRIVAL: I am (and intend to continue to be) in text communication with you. PLEASE TEXT ME WHEN YOU ARE CLOSE OR EVEN IN THE DRIVEWAY. This way, I can come out to meet, greet, give you the key & a brief tour, and offer anything else that might be helpful.

The SpaceWelcome to my top floor brownstone home in the nicest part of Jamaica Plain. For being so close to the city, it's a truly idyllic spot, right in the treetops with peaceful garden views on both sides. There is bright sun throughout the day (skies permitting). The building is from 1906 and well-maintained, with lovely original details throughout, including stained glass, walnut moldings, and the original fireplace. This is a prime apartment in a prime location. Guest AccessMaster Bedroom with Queen bed. Second Bedroom with Double bed. Living Room, Dining Room, Music Room, Kitchen, Laundry, and Bathroom with tub. (Twin mattress also available for another guest). The price is lower than you would pay for an equivalent unit with modernized bathroom and kitchen. The kitchen has great appliances and good counter space, but is very simple. The bathroom does everything you need but is not especially lovely. I also have a bike available for my guests - if you're interested please ask! Interaction with GuestsI'm a freelance musician and if you like I can tell you about interesting places to go in Boston. If I'm traveling, email me with any questions! If you have an immediate need, a friend of mine in the neighborhood can assist you. The NeighborhoodA minute's walk from Centre St and its great restaurants, steps from Jamaica Pond and the lush parks of the Emerald Necklace. Located right between the two main commercial areas of downtown Jamaica Plain and Hyde Square. Turn left for Chinese, Dominican, Spanish and Scottish food and Irish pub. Go right for Fine Dining, burritos, ice cream, and more Irish pubs. A sampling: - Ten Tables - just two blocks away; food is mostly locally sourced and exquisitely prepared. Magic cocktails. Fine dining with a neighborhood vibe. - Tapas Bar & Record Store: Tres Gatos - Italian: Centre St Café - Burgers & Beer: Grass Fed - Pubs: The Haven (Scottish food and fine ales); Brendan Behan (Irish pub, bring your own food); Galway House (inexpensive, huge beer list, good food, open till 2am every night) - Brunch: Sorella's, Tres Gatos, Centre St Café - Outdoor seating in nice weather: Tres Gatos, Canary Square - Coffee and gourmet sandwiches: City Feed and Supply; 9 Pond - Ice Cream: JP Licks' flagship location; Fomu, delicious non-dairy ice cream - Brewery Tours: Sam Adams, 1 mile away and offering free tours - Bakeries: Blue Frog; Pigs Fly; Canto 6; Fiore's - Supermarket: Whole Foods Market, 4 blocks away Great parks: - Jamaica Pond (across the street) for running, fishing, contemplation, picnicking, sailing (the boathouse offers inexpensive rentals of various types of boats) - The Arnold Arboretum (15 minutes' walk) huge park with beautiful trees from around the world Getting AroundUnrestricted on-street parking Public Transport: - #39 Bus goes from the end of the street. Convenient and quick to Longwood Medical Area, Museum of Fine Arts, Symphony Hall, Fenway (many bus connections), and Back Bay. - #41 Bus to Dudley Square and UMass Boston - Orange Line T is about 12 minutes walk and from there it's a quick ride into the center, with connections to every major T line. Zipcars and One-Way Zipcars are 1 block away. A lot of them! 8 at my last count. Bicycle: I commute every day to Back Bay by bike (15 mins). You'll be close to two major bike paths: Southwest Corridor (along the Orange Line T) all the way to Mass Ave The Emerald Necklace - the almost contiguous parkland ringing Boston - is across the street and has easy connections to Fenway, Boston and Cambridge. Other Things to NoteApartment is on the top floor, which means you walk up two flights of stairs. Although it has been a very safe neighborhood for many years now, the building has a security system, easy to use. Air conditioning units in master bedroom and living room. Ceiling fan in second bedroom. Single mattress and queen size inflatable bed also available, but please discuss with me if you are having more than 4 people. I have an "exotic pet" - a beautiful columbian boa. Ygdrasil lives in a secure terrarium, isn't poisonous, mostly hangs out in her hide-box, and doesn't need anything from you. I have a 110-year-old Bechstein grand piano, recently rebuilt and restored. I welcome you to play but expect you to treat her with clean hands and good care.

The SpacePlease Note: From November 5th to Nov. 20th there is a week minimum stay. My apologies, but I cannot accept requests for shorter stays during this time period as I will be traveling. Built in 1910, my building served as housing for the workers who ran the former sixteen breweries that once lived in this area. The apartment is close to fun restaurants, boutiques, parks, pond and public transportation! Jamaica Plain is a funky, fun and diverse place with easy access to downtown. My apartment is clean, comfortable and uncluttered. The room can accommodate up to two people in a single queen size bed. The bathroom is shared, but I am flexible for when I shower. The bathroom features and old claw foot tub with a shower. I do not have any grab bars available for the tub just for your information. Water pressure is excellent! I am on the first floor so the apartment is very accessible. One thing I like to mention to guests is that I live in an urban environment. My apartment is on the first floor of a three story building off a busy city street. I have neighbors above me on the second floor. You can hear the occasional fire engine or trash truck driving along the main street. The building's furnace is below the bedroom and sometimes kicks on during the evening to heat the hot water. None of my guests have ever complained about any of these urban sounds in there reviews, but I wanted to let you know. Despite the old creaky wood floors, the apartment itself and I are very quiet and respectful of my guests! If there is anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable within my means please let me know! Guest AccessGuests can use the whole apartment including kitchen, bathroom, living room with high definition cable television, wireless internet, coin operated washer and dryer! I don't keep much food in the fridge so there is plenty of room if you want to pick up milk, fruit, eggs, etc. I do offer complimentary coffee which I will make in the morning if I am there. Guests are free to use the kitchen to cook meals. Interaction with GuestsI am flexible with guests. If you want to hang out great! If you prefer privacy, I understand and will be very respectful. If there are any issues with your stay, please let me know and I will do the best to resolve them! The NeighborhoodJamaica Plain is incredible! We are surrounded by parks, boutiques, restaurants and fun and lively residents! A list of recommended places to visit are located in the room. Getting AroundThe apartment is about 50-60 minutes on public transportation from the airport. I generally prefer taking a cab which is about $45 plus tip. From your terminal, take the free airport shuttle to the Airport subway station. From there take the Blue Line inbound to State Street Station. From here transfer to the Orange Line towards Forest Hills Station. Green Street Station is one station before Forest Hills. Upon exiting the station, walk up Green Street towards the left for four to five minutes, about four blocks. At Centre Street walk to the right. Pond Street is two blocks to the left. If you arrive when I am free, I can pick you up from the T stop. Unrestricted parking is available throughout the immediate vicinity of the apartment. If you have difficulty finding a space I will assist you. Do not park behind my building. It is private parking and you will get towed. The bus to downtown is around the corner and the subway is a seven minute walk from the house. Hubway Bike share is also down the street. Other Things to NoteWe can coordinate on shower times, etc. Please just ask!

The SpaceLoft bedroom in newly renovated apartment. Located within walking distance of subway, grocery, bike path, Arboretum and equally convenient location for drivers. Ski lodge feel, sky lights, large deck, pine trees, oasis in the city. I recently renovated this gorgeous space with artist friends. Sculptors and woodworkers, we custom fit details and created an oasis in the city. Friends often say, "Oh my god, I feel like I'm on vacation when I'm here!". The top floor of the two-family home I own in Jamaica Plain feels part loft, part boat, part ski lodge. The sky lights and direct sun beaming in is amazing. The central vaulted ceiling room is a great place to hang (literally - i have a hammock swing!) As you can see from the pictures, the loft bedroom is semi-private, ie. visually private but no real sound barrier. My bedroom is in the back of the house and separate. I'm a yoga teacher and writer and would love to have you as a guest. Great place to be when attending big events in the Boston area, like the Boston marathon or 4th of July on the Esplanade. Removed from the downtown area enough to be free of the downtown traffic and parking hassles.

The SpaceI recently renovated this space with artist friends. Sculptors and woodworkers, we custom fit details and created an oasis in the city. Friends often say, "I feel like I'm on vacation when I'm here!". This top floor apartment of the two-family home I own in Jamaica Plain feels part loft, part boat, part ski lodge. The sky lights and direct sun beaming in is amazing. The central room with vaulted ceiling is a great place to hang (literally - i have a hammock swing!), sit and chat while someone cooks in the kitchen or (email hidden) under the stainless steel range hood. I have a driveway for you to park in and in addition there are no restrictions on the street's parking (unlike almost everywhere else in Boston where it can be a real head ache!). Park in the driveway or in front of the house. It's easy to get into the city without your car as well, the Orange Line or bus will bring you downtown in 15 minutes once you're aboard. The bedroom in the back is secluded and quite, and the loft bedroom up the ladder is fun and cozy. AC units in the bedrooms and central area keep it cool. . The front living room is a great place to relax and talk (the front room with the sliding doors). With a minimalist's eye, I often use it as a meditation or yoga room - there are two huge Fuff chairs (memory foam/bean bag chairs) in there now. The place is relaxing, convenient, comfortable, fun and classy. It's easily accessible whether you are traveling on foot or by car. (The photo of the central room needs to be updated to display a new West Elm L shaped couch there now with a coffee table and television. I use the kitchen table for meals.) You've got it ALL to yourself: -2 big bedrooms: both with queen size beds. -Wi-Fi -TV Cable, HBO, etc. -Dishwasher -New, in-unit Clothes Washer & Dryer for laundry -Beautifully tiled modern bathroom... -Deck - French doors off of the main bedroom and living room to the beautiful sun deck with the arms of 3 pine trees brushing the railings from the back yard! -Parking: Driveway for private parking multiple cars with loads of additional FREE street parking directly in front of the house. (I have all the extras: Hair dryer, curling iron, extra towels and sheets, cast iron pans, cooking utensils etc., etc.) The photos speak for the space better than I can. I have a HAMMOCK SWING in the apartment! :) I'm around if you need me. Everyone loves JP (Jamaica Plain). It's the hip, artistic, organic food-loving, liberal neighborhood of the city. "The Brooklyn of Boston". The very divinely specific location of my home is equi-distant from all the essentials; the Harvest Food Market, Public Transit, The JP Pond (row boat rentals are only $5!) Blanchard's Liquor store, all the cool restaurants and coffee shops on Centre Street. The 39 Bus picks up at the end of the street and takes you straight to the heart of downtown Boston in Copley Square. You can also walk to the subway's Orange Line and cruise the city's via train. (Amtrak connects to Boston at the Orange line's Back Bay station) The #39 Bus picks up at the end of the street and takes you straight to the heart of downtown Boston in Copley Square in about 20 minutes. Stops along the way pass the Museum of Fine Arts and Newbury Street shopping. You can also walk to the subway's Orange Line (Forest Hills Station or Green Street, 7 to 10 min walk) and cruise the city via train. (Amtrak connects to Boston on the Orange line - it's at Back Bay station) Great place to be when attending big events in the Boston area, like the Boston marathon or 4th of July on the Esplanade. Removed from the downtown area enough to be free of the downtown traffic and parking hassles.

The SpaceThis apartment is on the second and third levels attached to our Italianate home. Comfortably furnished with a new kitchen, bathroom, cable TV, an Omann Junn dining set (early 1960s Danish), etc. Upstairs, there is an additional Japanese Tea House brought over from Kyoto in the 1920s (not sure how you would use it, but you're welcome to hold tea ceremonies). Since we live nearby, we prefer quiet guests but are otherwise flexible. We've lived in Boston for twenty years so are happy to help guide you through Boston, if needed. We just listed this apartment.

The SpaceWelcome to my top floor brownstone home in the nicest part of Jamaica Plain. It's an idyllic spot, right in the treetops with peaceful garden views on both sides. There is bright sun throughout the day (skies permitting). The building is from 1906, with lovely original details throughout, including stained glass, walnut moldings, and the original fireplace. This is a prime apartment in a prime location. Guest AccessYour charming room has a double bed, a dresser, a desk, a rug from Morocco and a nice ceiling fan. There are unobstructed north views across a quiet street, with many trees. There is a shared living room, dining room, bathroom, kitchen, and laundry. There is a 110-year old Bechstein grand piano which, if I'm not using the music room, you can use. And if I'm working, you can still tickle the ivories: there's an 88-key keyboard in your bedroom, with headphones. I also have a bike available for my guests - if you're interested please ask! Interaction with GuestsI'm a freelance musician and my schedule is pretty variable. I can tell you about cool places to visit, and musical events around town. Some days I work from home, and I teach at a college three days a week. When I'm at home I usually have prep to do for gigs and teaching. When I'm not working, I like to listen to music and have a glass of wine, get some exercise, walk around the neighborhood, go out to a jazz club or one of our awesome local restaurants. The NeighborhoodA minute's walk from Centre St and its great restaurants, steps from Jamaica Pond and the lush parks of the Emerald Necklace. Located right between the two main commercial areas of downtown Jamaica Plain and Hyde Square. Turn left for Chinese, Dominican, Spanish and Scottish food and Irish pub. Go right for Fine Dining, burritos, ice cream, and more Irish pubs. A sampling: - Ten Tables - just two blocks away; food is mostly locally sourced and exquisitely prepared. Magic cocktails. Fine dining with a neighborhood vibe. - Tapas Bar & Record Store: Tres Gatos - Italian: Centre St Café - Burgers & Beer: Grass Fed - Pubs: The Haven (Scottish food and fine ales); Brendan Behan (Irish pub, bring your own food); Galway House (inexpensive, huge beer list, good food, open till 2am every night) - Brunch: Sorella's, Tres Gatos, Centre St Café - Outdoor seating in nice weather: Tres Gatos, Canary Square - Coffee and gourmet sandwiches: City Feed and Supply; 9 Pond - Ice Cream: JP Licks' flagship location; Fomu, delicious non-dairy ice cream - Brewery Tours: Sam Adams, 1 mile away and offering free tours - Bakeries: Blue Frog; Pigs Fly; Canto 6; Fiore's - Supermarket: Whole Foods Market, 4 blocks away Great parks: - Jamaica Pond (across the street) for running, fishing, contemplation, picnicking, sailing (the boathouse offers inexpensive rentals of various types of boats) - The Arnold Arboretum (15 minutes' walk) huge park with beautiful trees from around the world Getting AroundUnrestricted on-street parking Public Transport: - #39 Bus goes from the end of the street. Convenient and quick to Longwood Medical Area, Museum of Fine Arts, Symphony Hall, Fenway (many bus connections), and Back Bay (. - #41 Bus to Dudley Square and UMass Boston - Orange Line T is about 12 minutes walk and from there it's a quick ride into the center, with connections to every major T line. Zipcars and One-Way Zipcars are 1 block away. A lot of them! 8 at my last count. Bicycle: I commute every day to Back Bay by bike (15 mins). You'll be close to two major bike paths: Southwest Corridor (along the Orange Line T) all the way to Mass Ave The Emerald Necklace - the almost contiguous parkland ringing Boston - is across the street and has easy connections to Fenway, Boston and Cambridge. Other Things to NoteApartment is on the top floor, which means you walk up two flights of stairs. Although it has been a very safe neighborhood for many years now, the building has a security system, easy to use. The bedroom has a quiet, and effective ceiling fan and two big windows. Living room has a.c. I have an "exotic pet" - a beautiful columbian boa. Ygdrasil lives in a secure terrarium in a common area, isn't poisonous, mostly hangs out in her hide-box, and doesn't need anything from you.

The SpaceMy apartment is located in Jamaica Plain, a diverse and safe neighborhood in Boston! The apartment has a shared bathroom, available eat in kitchen and your own private bedroom with a desk and a gigantic TV in the main living space. LGBTQ friendly, no drugs, smoking, or alcohol. I do have a small dog, extremely friendly, warm and loving. The room does have AC and Wifi available. The pictures show a pull out bed, the bed is not a pull out, it is a double bed that fits two comfortably. Sorry, pictures will be updated soon to show the double bed. **NOTE**As a response from Air bnb feedback, I now live in space alone, there is no longer a roommate. The house is conveniently located on a major street in the neighborhood. The bedroom is located in the rear of the house so the noise is less then it would be in the front.. My apartment is quiet and I am not around much. We are walking distance from the bus and train stations. There are several grocery stores nearby (walk to Harvest Co-op and whole foods is less then a mile.-which absolutely amazing!) I am also located next to many restaurants, coffee shops, sandwich shops, bakeries and bars. Walking distance to public transportation to downtown Boston. Also close to hospitals, colleges, Universities and Fenway Park! You can also hop on to the T and be in Faneuil Hall or Chinatown in 20 minutes. Looking forward to hearing from you!

We are located across the street from a lovely park and only a block away from the Orange Line subway and Hubway bicycle rental. Guest AccessYour private bedroom is located next to a shared bathroom with shower and tub. The gourmet kitchen is available for breakfast and lunch and can be available for dinner preparation as well with prior permission. There are two decks - one with a BBQ and seating for up to 8 guests. We also have a beautiful dinning room with reading nook where you are free to curl up. Free wi-fi is also available in every room. Interaction with GuestsAs a 30+ year resident of Jamaica Plain, I am available for restaurant recommendations and travel tips! And if you like, please feel free to join me for a cup of tea or glass of wine. The NeighborhoodJamaica Plain is the best neighborhood in the Boston area, bar none! Surrounded by parks and green space, JP is unique and diverse. With restaurants that range from gourmet treasures to down-home ethnic hangouts, we can please all palettes. Art galleries, pubs, and live music venues round out the experience. You may never want to leave our "village" but you can easily venture out to Boston proper via the convenient subway system (one block from my house) or rent a bike at the station via Hubway and bike the city on one of the many bike paths within easy reach of the house. Jamaica Plain is a community of artists, musicians, writers, and everything in between. We pride ourselves on our diversity, friendliness, and commitment to community. Come visit and you'll want to stay! Getting AroundOnly one block away is the Green Street Station on the Orange Line. There is also a Hubway Bike rental station located at the station which is on the SouthWest Corridor Bike Path. Or bike over to the Jamaica Pond and catch the Emerald Necklace Bike Path over to Fenway and beyond. We are only about 10-20 minutes away from downtown Boston by the subway system or about 20-30 mins via a bike. Of course, walking is also a beautiful way to get around as well! Other Things to NoteI occasionally have a visiting scholar who will be sharing the bathroom with you. They have a separate room on the floor above but will use the same bathroom as you. Also, please note that this is my home. It is clean, but often a bit messy in the common areas, particularly when I am working on my artwork. I also have a large, lovable labrador retriever who tends to leave her toys around the house. Finally, my friends come to dinner parties at my house once or twice a week, so you might run into some festive happenings. My house is filled with artwork and love. It is not to everyone's aesthetic liking. That is fine, so if you prefer a more sterile or modern environment, this is not for you. If you like eclectic stuff, antiques, art, crazy dogs, and meeting new friends, then you are most welcome! Come on over.

The SpaceBack in 1907, the carriage house was home to one of the world's oldest horses: Jeff, a 38-year-old "equine Methuselah," per a Boston Globe article of that era. While Jeff is sadly long gone, many of the structure's historic details have been preserved, including the original floorboards, a sliding stall door, and a pulley once used to lift hay up to the loft. Today, that hayloft is a bright 625 square foot studio apartment, perfectly suited for a single traveler or couple. Guest AccessThe carriage house is a stand-alone building, with a private entrance. As our guest, you'll enjoy full run of the apartment. We have a Bose speaker compatible with your iPod or iPhone, and a flatscreen TV with OTA network channels and Roku. (We have Netflix; guests are welcome to sign into their own cable accounts for additional programming.) We also offer a selection of board games for traditional fun. Interaction with GuestsWe respect our guests' privacy, but are available to answer questions and offer assistance as needed, either in person or by email/text/phone. The NeighborhoodThere's so much to love about Jamaica Plain--we wouldn't want to live anywhere else! Below are some of our neighborhood favorites, and we are always willing to make additional recommendations! OUTDOORS: JP boasts more green space than any other neighborhood in Boston, and it's well worth exploring. Take a stroll through Arnold Arboretum, a gorgeous living tree museum, or head over to Jamaica Pond where you can rent a boat, or join the joggers circling the perimeter. FOOD AND DRINK: For groceries, head to the local Whole Foods. City Feed and Supply offers great sandwiches, high-end groceries and good coffee. Next door at the Purple Cactus, you'll find quick and healthy-ish burritos and salads.On the other side of Centre Street, Bukhara is a good bet for Indian food. Petite neighborhood favorite Vee Vee offers creative American fare with vegetarian and vegan options, and brunch on Sundays. Ten Tables is another much-loved dinner spot, though booking ahead is a must as it only has--you guessed it--10 tables. Attached to Ten Tables is the more casual TT Bar, offering excellent craft cocktails and bar bites. Just down the street, local gastropub Canary Square serves solid food and cocktails. Save room for an ice cream cone at neighborhood institution JP Licks. SHOP: For a unique selection of jewelry and other handcrafted items, don't miss Fire Opal. All the kids love our local toy store, Boing, and all the pets love the Polka Dog Bakery. Check out the incredible selection of hats at trendy boutique Salmagundi and dig for secondhand treasures at Boomerang. Fans of modern design will enjoy Room 68, while the well-curated and quirky selection of merchandise at On Centre appeals to just about everyone. ENTERTAINMENT: Catch a play at the Footlight Club, America's oldest community theater, or take a tour of the Samuel Adams Brewery (21+, suggested donation $2) and get the lowdown on craft brewing. On Monday nights, Bella Luna hosts a trivia night, and on Wednesdays, swing by Costello's Tavern for live band karaoke. Getting AroundThe 39 bus stops a block away, and the Orange Line (subway) is a 10-minute walk. (Green Street Station.) There is a Hubway bicycle rental station a block away. There is free parking on our street, and we offer free off-street parking in our driveway. Other Things to NotePlease park in the spot on the right at the sidewalk end of our driveway, just as you turn in. Because the apartment must be accessed by a short, steep flight of stairs (pictured), it is not appropriate for mobility impaired individuals. We do not offer laundry services; however, there are a number of laundromats within walking distance.
