My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Marcos and Betsy's place while visiting our son, who is a student at Boston University. (So convenient when restaurants, movies, and shopping are within walking distance - no car necessary!). The company and comfort were top-notch. We were told in advance there was another family with children staying at the house... More

We spent 9 nights at 'On the Park'. The B&B is clean, homey and is beautifully located ON A PARK in a quiet yet lively Coolidge Corner neighbourhood. But more than that, the owners are extremely attentive and welcoming. A hearty breakfast was served every morning, along with lots of great coffee. Enjoying a glass of wine on the beautiful... More

88 on the park is a perfect B&B, we stayed here for 3 days in June 2016 with our two children. We had two large bedrooms with a bathroom shared between us. The hosts Betsy and Marco are extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are very clean and the homemade breakfast is wonderful.

We returned to On the Park for a four-day visit in May 2016, after a year's absence. We had to make sure we could stay here before we made our plane reservations. Betsy and Marcos are the best. They maintain a very high standard, and we will plan our next trip to Boston around availability of a room being available.... More

We have stayed at On the Park three times, and always enjoy our visits. Betsy and Marcos are warm and gracious hosts who make you feel comfortable from the moment you enter their B&B. The guest rooms are cozy and clean, and the breakfasts are delicious and satisfying. We have had delightful conversations with other guests over breakfast and while... More

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel like family at this delightful B&B on one of the nicest streets in Brookline. A former home where five children were raised is now a cozy and welcoming retreat in a very safe and quiet neighborhood. The house is convenient to both bus and train stops as well as some... More

This fabulous B& B is conveniently located between the B and C T lines in a beautiful neighborhood. The bedrooms, bathroom, and living room are very clean and have so much character. From the lovey quilts, robes in closet, and hand made pottery mugs and dishes, you feel welcomed and pampered. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, granola, and pastries.... More

The location alone makes this a great place--safe and convenient to everything (greater Boston by public transportation and Coolidge Corner by foot) and tucked inside a cozy, quiet victorian neighborhood with tree-lined streets and a wonderfully equipped park just across the street. (A godsend if you are travelling with children) The accommodations are generous and very, very comfortable. The breakfast... More

The hosts, Betsy and Marcos, take great care to provide a B&B that meets the needs of their patrons and seem to really enjoy doing so. As a result I felt welcomed, enjoyed my privacy, and felt well taken care of. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very clean. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. My husband and I... More
