Property Description

Stay in a wonderfully cared for 1920's farmhouse that offers comfort, and privacy and is 5 miles, or 15 minutes to the heart of Boston. The house is the perfect home away from home, super clean, sunny, parking and a residential tree lined street minutes from Brookline, Boston, and Cambridge. We are a few minute walk to public transportation and only 3 stops to Back Bay Station on the Purple Line or about 15 minutes commuting. Of equal distance is the 200 acre Arnold Arboretum and Roslindale Village. The house is set nestled back 90 feet from the tree lined residential street, your own little quarter acre. This is a rental property, we do not live there even when the house is not rented.

There are three (3) bedrooms on the second floor (queen, double, single) and two bathrooms. There is a double futon couch/bed should you have more than 5 guests in the living room. The first floor has a living room, dining room, eat in kitchen, and the main bathroom with tub and tiled shower. There are hardwood floors through out the house, excluding the kitchen and bathrooms.The back (fenced-in) garden is a great place to prepare a barbecue, or just relax in the afternoon sun after a hard day of sight seeing. The house and garden are very private with flowering trees, singing birds and great light all day long.

There are three Air Conditioners (two upstairs and one downstairs) and two window fans. The house is naturally cool as long as you keep the windows closed during the day. The heat is gas forced hot air.

The kitchen is fully stocked with baking dishes, All Clad pots and pans, and a eclectic array of dishes with service for 7 people. There are many kitchen sundries available for your use from tea bags and coffee to cooking oil and plastic wrap, have a look around when you arrive.

The bathrooms are tiled, and have great water pressure. Soap and toilet paper are provided.

You are only a 10 minute walk to the neighborhood village with a few upscale restaurants, coffee and ice cream shops, a grocery store and bakery. There is also a really nice wine store and a Saturday farmer's market. Less than 5 minutes walking is a new Green T Coffee Shop with sandwiches and baked goods. The famous 200 acre Arnold Arboretum is a five minute walk or less. Roslindale is a trending neighborhood because of it's close proximity to downtown and available single family homes. There are many young families, local block parties, tree lined streets and is minutes from downtown (I commuted it everyday for 15 years). The village train, local bus or a friendly Uber driver can take you directly to major museums and historic downtown Boston in 15 minutes or less.

The calendar is kept up to date.

Check in is at 3.30PM and Check Out is at 10.30AM

The Pet Fee is 125.00 per pet, per stay.

We thank you for considering our beloved house in Roslindale. We have rented on VRBO from London to Cape Cod and Los Angeles and know what a nice vacation rental is. We hope you will give our charming 100 year old farmhouse a try on your next trip to Boston.

This home is very comfortable and there’s a nice village feel to the neighborhood.

Cozy comfort tucked away and felt like our own home!

Traveling from Michigan, we stayed in this lovely, cozy home with fresh furnishings and ample kitchen supplies for five days in September. It was just for myself and my husband so we didn't need the entire house that would comfortably sleep seven persons. We needed to be near our adult kids a few streets away who had just given us our second grandc... Read More
