The SpaceWe welcome you to enjoy your stay in our 16-room mansion in the heart of Norwood, Massachusetts. We're about 30 minutes outside of Boston via train, so you can enjoy the quiet of of our town and still enjoy and evening in the city.
You suite is on the 2nd and 3rd floors, with the bedroom and den on the third floor and the bathroom on the second floor. You'll have private access to the bedroom and bathroom during your stay (one of my children might use the den on occasion). In addition, there is ample parking in our circle driveway. Our yard features an expansive terrace with a pool and hot tub (in season).
The other occupants of the house are me and my husband. We entertain frequently and it's possible that you will be invited to our impromptu gatherings, though of course your privacy is respected. In fact, there is a separate staircase to your suite from the main floor so that you can have secluded access to your suite. Guest AccessGuests will have access to a private bedroom, den, and bathroom, in addition to shared use of the kitchen, dining room, and terrace. While guests are welcome to shared use of the kitchen and dining room, guests cannot host parties or bring other individuals to our home during their stay. For safety reasons, guests cannot make fires in the fireplaces. Guests enjoy private use of their bedroom and bathroom, but are asked not to enter the other bedrooms during their stay. We unfortunately have to state this based on past experiences, but guests cannot bring other individuals into our house. Interaction with GuestsOur interaction with guests will be determined by what our guests will like. We are very respectful of those who are looking for a quiet place to sleep, and very open to those who are looking to meet new people. It's up to the guests! The NeighborhoodNorwood is a very quiet, lovely, suburban neighborhood. Our home is a 2-block walk into the town center, where one can find restaurants, shops, pubs, and a theater. At the same time, we are conveniently located to Boston. Getting AroundWe are four blocks from a commuter rail station that will get you to Boston in 30 minutes. We are reached from major highways including I-93 and I-95. Other Things to NoteThere is one dog and one cat who also live in the house. Fenwick is a very well-manered and lovable pup. Reesie is an older, very sweet, and spoiled cat. Both animals have the run of the house, but will not be staying in the guest rooms.
