Betsy and Marcos went out of their way to insure we had a perfect stay for the two nights we spent in their welcoming, ideally located, B&B. As the name suggests, their lovely home is located across from a small park on a quiet street in Brookline that is within walking distance to two MBTA lines. We were greeted with... More

This is a lovely B&B in a great and active neighborhood. Hosts Marcos and Betsy are very helpful. The place is just a 10 minute walk from the Green Line and a 5 minute walk to a number of good restaurants. Having done a lot of looking, On the Park offers an excellent "what you get for what you pay"... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights to attend some pre-op appointments at the Children's Hospital, a pleasant 30-minute walk from the B&B. On the Park certainly enhanced our stay. The proprietors, Brenna and Marcos, were wonderful hosts. I enjoyed talking to them; they told us what we needed to know; but were not overbearing. Theirs is a lovely home,... More

My wife and I spent three nights at On the Park. I have little to add beyond what others have written: the rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, the breakfast tasty and plentiful, the location convenient to public transportation and local shops and restaurants, WiFi worked flawlessly, and the hosts (Betsy and Marco) were gracious, helpful, and courteous. Bear in... More

My husband and I just spent 4 nights at this wonderful B&B owned and operated by Betsy and Marco. Our room was small, but nice and the bed was very comfortable. Our private bathroom was next to our room, fluffy robes were provided. Nice toiletries in the bathroom. Breakfast was delicious and served in the dining room, buffet style, with... More

As soon as I received an invitation to a wedding in Boston, I knew where I would be staying. It was my third trip to Boston and third time at On the Park. I keep coming back because the home is lovely; the location can't be beat; the breakfast is healthy and delicious; and the hosts are warm, welcoming, kind... More

My wife, seven year old son and I stayed here for six nights. It's a beautiful house in a quiet residential area with a park in front, but it's only 5 minutes walk to two of the transit green lines. This makes it ideal for getting in and out of the downtown. It was great leaving the bustle of the... More

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.
