What do you get when you combine a cabin in the woods, a cottage on the beach, & a cutting edge art gallery, all right outside the city sights?
Enjoy the ocean view from your room, walk 1/2 block to lounge on the semi-private beach, or go for a nice stroll along the water. Read on the porch amid shady trees and watch little birds &squirrels play.
We're just outside Boston, near Quincy Center, w/good public transport, free parking, & 10 minutes' drive to freeway. It's like combining Cape Cod & Boston in one.
A peaceful respite if you enjoy eclectic beauty, antiques & art, and are tolerant of imperfections in a 100+ year old house. We are always in the midst of little projects: expect that *other than your room* you may see boxes or stacks here &there, paint colors being sampled, etc. We are clean but imperfect!

Caveats: the yard is a nature preserve, and genteel summer camp-like-ness permeates all. Mysterious interior design ingredients regularly invade the dining room. Thrill to the excitement of semi-domesticated wildlife if you catch a glimpse of skunks, watch mating slugs, or if you're very lucky & a raccoon peeks in your window.

A quiet neighborhood by the beach with easy access to Boston. Woke-up to squirrels on the deck during cool mornings. 10 minute walk to the bus stop, then a 20 minute subway ride will put you in Boston. This is the place to experience what being a local is like. Be Be was gracious, helpful and even picked me up from the station when I arrived, and dropped me off at the ferry when I left. Enjoyed my stay, and would love to stay here again.

Our stay at Quirky arts & crafts by the sea was quite pleasant. It was good to go back to a quiet and relaxing place by the sea after a day of sightseeing in Boston. The commute ride is well worth it, giving us the occasion to get acquainted with other suburbs of Boston. Be is a warm and welcoming host. Her accommodations are very comfortable. We could not have asked for more.

Be's home is warm, inviting, and a great getaway from the hustle of the city! It's a little far by transit (one train and one bus), but perfect if you're driving or want to stay by the beach (a very short walk away). I loved all the thoughtful little touches Be puts into making sure her guests feel at home including the toiletries that are set out in the guest room, the informational sheet she provides, breakfast in the morning, and the cute pillows on the bed. The home is also filled with interesting furniture and art. Everywhere you look, there's something fascinating! It's a quirky but welcoming place to visit. I'd recommend it!
