My daughter and I stayed at Alderwood B&B in April 2011, while on a college-visiting trip to WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Institute). The public transportation connections from the Boston airport to the town of Newton were easy to figure out online, and our host Richard drove us between the train station and the bed and breakfast. Newton was a good staging location between Boston and Worcester. Our hosts mentioned that many people stay at Alderwood while visiting Boston College, which is very close by.
Alderwood B&B is a lovely private home in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood. We rented both of the available bedrooms, which share a separate bathroom. Very comfortable, very clean. Not sleek and chilly, not full of chintz and knick-knacks. Lovely, attractive, and restful.
Myra and Richard are gracious and interesting hosts. Myra’s breakfasts are fresh and appealing, and her excellent paintings contribute to the restful, at-home feeling you get there.
Very nice people, and a highly-recommended B&B.
