3rd floor suite is like having your own apartment: bedroom, living room and kitchen and bath(shower) off a central hall at the top of the steps. The house has character and quirks like squeaky floors and the roof angles in the bathroom that make it impossible to have the mirror over the sink high enough but make it far more interesting than your standard hotel room. Very clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast is simple but far more than we needed with delicious baked goods from around the corner, fresh fruit and cereals. Claudia and her daughter are both very pleasant and accomodating hostesses. Parking may require some juggling of cars but not usually a problem. All in all it is a B&B, not a hotel. For those who like the holiness and quirks it is great. if you prefer a hotel stay at one, not here.
- 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
