We recently booked a three-night stay at On the Park, purposely trying to avoid the overpriced hotels due to it being BU graduation weekend. A friend who lives in Brookline suggested On the Park. We liked its location in a residential area with standalone 1920s wooden homes, a block off Harvard Street, Brookline's main drag that connects Commonwealth Avenue and... More

I teased Marcos about his hat collection because I admired it along with the other collections of art books, pottery, and family pictures that fill this house with interest. Wonderful hosts, Marcos and Betsy, live here and provide fresh breakfasts, a very comfortable room, and interesting conversation. I highly recommend this lovely bed and breakfast just off the main drag... More

I spent four nights here for the Boston Marathon which commands a high price. Marcos and Betsy are very nice and helpful, breakfast was good, my room was comfortable and the entire house was well cared for.

My family is relocating to the Brookline/Boston area, and based the fantastic TripAdvisor reviews booked a stay at On the Park for our house hunting trip. This was our first time in a B&B and we had a great experience, consistent with many of the other reviewers here. Our room was clean, comfortable, and had ample space for a portable... More

The cold, snowy winter set in, and we needed a quick getaway. On the Park fit the bill. The B & B was located in a beautiful residential area in Brookline. We were a short walk to the "T" which made seeing the city very easy. The best part was the hosts, Betsy and Marcos. Loving and engaging people, we... More

I had tried several times in the past to stay at this Bed and Breakfast without success; I'm glad I kept trying! Spent two nights while visiting famiy in Boston and couldn't have been happier the the B&B. This is a real bed and breakfast; guests are on the second floor and the family is on the third. My room...

When cabin fever struck my husband and me as a result of this crazy, snowy, icy winter--we decided to head south to Boston from Maine and found ourselves at the Inn on the Park. Two nights felt like a week of relaxation and exploration. Using the Inn as our home base--we walked to the Museum of Fine Arts and throughout... More

A terrific B&B - thanks to our hosts Betsy and Marcos. I brought an exercise tape with me and since there was no TV/DVD in the bedroom, Marcos set up my tape in the living room on a laptop. I exercised with a beautiful view of the snow covered park across the street. We weren't in a rush in the... More

What more can you want in a B&B than to know its clean, its comfortable and you are going to have a wonderful night of sleep. The windows really darken down so I slept like a babe. Can't remember when I slept that long. Maybe because it was also quiet. Hosts Betsy and Marcos couldn't be nicer. And I love... More

Wonderful place to stay. Betsy and Marcos are the perfect hosts and the house is very cozy and charming. All is clean and in good condition. We felt very welcome and enjoyed the time in Boston very much. The breakfast was prepared with love and included fresh fruit salad, cereal, bagels, juice and home made cake. Very healthy and exactly... More
