Claudia's place is great! She was very accommodating by taking in my wife and I at the last minute without reservations while visiting Newton. The suite was clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast was grand. Fresh baked scones and breads, boiled eggs, cheeses, coffee, teas, and much more. We hope to be back next trip through.

David, I truly was so grateful that it worked out and that I had the opportunity to meet you and Linda. It was all my pleasure and I certainly hope to see you both, or Linda when she is visiting her sister again. Hope the convention isn't making Center City too congested! More

This is our second time staying at the village B&B, both times have been fantastic. We stayed in the penthouse suite and it is incredibly spacious, and includes a bedroom, living room/kitchen/dining area and private bathroom. The location is amazing, just a 5 minute walk from the T, and you are on your way to downtown Boston. We love how... More

It was second time for me to stay at A Village B&B since the previous stay in 2014. This time I stayed 6 nights together with a colleague in separate rooms. For both stays we commuted from the B&B to WTC/BCEC near the Airport for several days to attend a conference. Though It takes about one hour by trains, the... More

The owner allowed our family to rent this beautiful house from January till mid May 2016 while she was traveling. The location, amenities, and charming settings made it a great home away from home. Highly recommended for anyone looking to enjoy Boston without being hit by Boston's steep hotel prices, to being right on the T without hearing it, and... More

Thank Goodness Claudia was there when I called, frantic to find a place for my recently graduated daughter, who found herself homeless for the night! Claudia, was patient with me, helping me book online, so that I could pay before she arrived, and made her feel right at home. My daughter called to say the place was like being at... More

I stayed at Village B&B by myself when my older daughter first started at Brandeis University four years ago. I loved it. Then all of us (my wife and two younger kids), plus my parents and mother-in-law took over the place this past weekend for her graduation. EVERYONE loved it! Claudia provides the perfect balance between privacy and a truly... More

Peter, I had to laugh when I read your last line about sending the other kids to college in Boston. I really enjoyed seeing you, before and after! What an amazing family and so appreciative of your writing. Hope our paths cross in the future, whether or not the other kids choose a Boston area school!!! More

I travel on business a great deal, and prefer small properties. I recently stayed at this most memorable B&B, in Newton Mass. Claudia the owner was interesting, gracious and accommodating. Her knowledge of the Boston area and transportation system made my stay so much more enjoyable. Her home is beautifully kept, and full of light, art and good food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Village B and B is a homestay B & B in the heart of Newton Highlands village, steps away from restaurants, craft and clothing stores and salons. It is a bustling village complete with commerce, and offers the convenience of a great walkability score. The MBTA to Boston is steps away for access to downtown, sites, and the airport all while not needing a car. Our rooms are busiest during May through November, so reserve early beginning with the Boston Marathon. We are convenient to major routes such as the MA Turnpike, I-95 and Route 9. Great location for trips to Fenway Park, local colleges such as Boston College, Brandeis, LaSalle, and Mount Ida, not far from Babson and Olin colleges as well. Many of our guests come for workshops at Samadhi Yoga Center, the Jungian Institute, or Healing Arts in Watertown. We have rooms with private bathrooms and shared bath. Prices float accordingly. We offer a continental breakfast each morning with home made and bakery items as well as yogurt, cheese, fruits, and beverages, according to what is allowed for small B and Bs in our state. ... more   less
