We live in a beautiful three story brick home in a historic neighborhood in Boston. My husband and I have lived here for almost 20 years. Our rooms are well maintained and we have working fire places in two of our bedrooms. There is a formal living room, dining room, and morning room on the first floor. We also have a large sitting room on the third floor. Our yard is large with a small fountain, a porch, and beautiful landscaping. I am an avid portrait photographer and my husband is an Episcopal priest with varied interests in history and music. We speak English but are comfortable with guests who know little or no English. We have hosted students for a number of years from many countries. We have two spoiled cats and are a non-smoking home. We serve breakfast in our large dining room each day. We are very comfortable having guests make themselves at home. The subway is right around the corner and it takes 15 minutes to reach downtown Boston or you can stay on the same red line subway and reach Harvard Square in about a half an hour. We have room in our yard for parking your car if you rent one.
