We wanted a place that was conveniently located - closer in to Boston but also not so far from our son's new apartment in Weymouth. We also wanted a place with a great kitchen and dining area to celebrate Thanksgiving. This place fit the bill! The house is warm and welcoming, convenient to the Boston metro system, shops and restaurants....

My mother and I enjoyed our stay at the cozy house very much. The house is very well equiped with everything you might need, after long walks through Boston and long hikes around. A well equiped kitchen, so you can cook, if you want. It was a very personal experience - as the house tells you a story - rather...

About the neighbourhood
The house is located in Mattapan in the Lower Mills section of Boston. This is residential, mixed neighborhood - young and retired, White, Black, Hispanic and Asian - with a very safe track record. We know our neighbors and care for each other. There are nearby parks and playgrounds, a bike/walking trail along the Neponset River, shops and restaurants as well as easy access to the MBTA subway/bus system.
We are 5 miles from historic downtown Boston and the beaches, both of which are reached easily by subway.
Getting around
Of course, you can drive anywhere - and it's nice to be located in Boston already so you don't have to fight rush hour traffic. But the MBTA is the cheapest way to get downtown to historical Boston. You can walk to the Mattapan trolley and ride 5 minutes to Ashmont Station where the Red Line will take you downtown or over to Harvard University in Cambridge.
Switch to the Silver Line to reach the airport or the Green Line to watch the marathon, visit Fenway Park, or travel west.
Car not needed
How to get there
You can take a taxi from the airport....
Or you can ride the subway: take the free Silver Line express from the airport to South Station (about 15 minutes), then transfer to the Red Line subway (look for a train marked Ashmont, not Braintree) and take the subway to Ashmont Station (about 20 minutes). At Ashmont, switch to the Mattapan Trolley and ride this to the Central Avenue stop (about 10 minutes). Our house is 3 blocks from the stop.
