À propos de ce logement
Quiet, peaceful room with pvt bath on your own floor. Located in the center of fun and funky JP with a great view over the rooftops--a block to Jamaica Pond, 2 bl to JP Ctr and lots of shops & restaurants, yards to the 39 bus, easy walk to the T. Onsite parking available.
The room is the master suite in a 3 BR townhouse in hoppin' JP, a very desirable part of Boston. The townhouse is built on a hill on ledge, and the 3d floor bedroom looks over the rooftops of JP through the branches of the trees. The moon sometimes shines through the skylight. It's a comfy queen bed -- very quiet for sleeping, with some city sounds far below, and the birds sharing the air.
Accès des voyageurs
The townhouse is 3 floors so the bedroom is up two flights. The kitchen and living room are on the first floor and there's room in the refrigerator if you need to keep something cold. I'll have light breakfast of coffee, tea, cereal, fruit and yogurt for you. There's a nice patio and table and chairs in the back for morning coffee. I have many books and maps about JP and Boston. Laundry facilities are available at a mutually convenient time.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I share the house with my 32 year old son, who recently moved back home and works a long day. I'm an attorney and nonprofit manager currently in between jobs. We've lived in JP for 35 years and we have lots of information to share about making the most of your visit to Boston. We have both traveled a lot and love to meet new people and help make their trips special. I also have a House Manual with good information about the area.
JP is known for its green space, its diversity of ethnic and economic groups, and its restaurants and bars, shops and thrift stores, and cultural and joyful events. Jamaica Pond is a block from the house, and the Arboretum is about a half mile walk, Franklin Park and Forest Hills Cemetery are less than a mile away. JP has some of the best restaurants in town, and many cuisines (Mexican, Thai, Korean, Indian and Middle Eastern, to name a few) are available within a few blocks. Whole Foods is just down the street. The original JP Licks, a fabulous ice cream store, is so close you won't be able to resist a late night snack. And the Sam Adams Brewery, a popular and fun stop, is a short walk from the house.
JP is on the Orange Line and it's a short walk to the Green or Stony Brook stations. The 39 bus to hospitals, the MFA, Northeastern U, the Hynes Convention Center and Copley Square is at the end of the street. There are multiple Hubway bike rental locations within a few blocks of the house, and two bike paths into the city. There are also several Zipcar stations nearby. If you are going to the hospital district, you may even choose to walk about 1.5 mi along a park path to the Longwood area, or take a 15 min trip on the 39 bus.
While you don't need a car if you stay with us and we don't recommend driving in the city, we do have off-street parking for a guest's car next to the building.
We expect guests to treat this as they would their own home. We don't allow pets. We don't allow smoking.

I'm a young 60 something, an attorney and nonprofit executive. I've lived in JP for almost 35 years. I love JP and wouldn't live anywhere else in Boston. I love Boston too. I'm a history major, so I really appreciate the unique role Boston played in our nation's formation. I'm also an outdoors person, so I can tell you about some special places in town and in New England. My son, Dakota, is 30 and currently living with me. He grew up here and has lived in Chicago and Los Angeles before coming home. He can tell you lots of things to do in Boston that are probably different from what I know. Lucky for you!
