    Quirky Arts & Crafts by the Sea

    Boston

    Description

    <p><span>The Be Village Headquarters blends a cabin in the woods, a cottage on the beach, &amp; a cutting edge art gallery, and puts them right outside the city sights. It&rsquo;s a peaceful respite if you love antiques, eclecticism and beauty, &amp; are tolerant of imperfections in a 100-year-old house being lovingly restored.</span><br /><br /><span>Enjoy ocean views from the living room, walk 1/2 block to the semi-private beach, or stroll along the water. Read on the porch amidst shady trees and watch many frolicking squirrels &amp; birds. It&rsquo;s just outside Boston, near Quincy Center, w/good public transport, free parking, &amp; 10 minutes' drive to the freeway &ndash; it feels like Boston and Cape Cod have combined together!</span></p>
    <p><span><strong>IMPORTANT DETAILS &amp; FEATURES:</strong></span></p>
    <p><span>- Shared full bath (host usually has opposite schedule of guests), + half bath</span></p>
    <p><span>- Self-serve a.m. coffee / tea &amp; Light breakfast: instant oats, toasties w/spreads or similar; breakfast not incl. in monthly rates after day 1</span></p>
    <p><span>- Wireless high speed internet, extends to outside</span></p>
    <p><span>- Many amenities like umbrella, GPS, kitchen, laundry</span></p>
    <p><span>- Fans, shade, ocean breeze, moderate weather: no AC</span></p>
    <p><span>- Flat screen to view Netflix &amp; DVDs in living room: no TV</span></p>
    <p><span><em><strong>ROOM DETAILS:</strong></em> Warm and welcoming yet light &amp; bright. A queen memory foam-topped mattress, desk &amp; chair, closet, bureau &amp; mirror, lights &amp; ceiling fan, personal heater. Currently featuring a bargain reduced price (normally 99$/night) while&nbsp; balcony is off-limits. Its french door &amp; window can both be opened wide to enjoy the sweet sea air. This room holds up to 2 persons in one bed. If you need a second bed, or, a second room, see also Cottage Room at quirky arts&amp;crafts, our other listing.</span></p>
    <p><span><em>CAVEATS</em>: 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 &amp; a raccoon peeks in your window. Neighborhood is super safe, &amp; very peaceful, but there may be the occasional random neighbor noise; house is peaceful &amp; quiet, w/slight sound transmission via antique wood walls/beamed ceilings. Listing often not available without advance notice (2+ days).</span></p>
    <p><span><strong>IMPORTANT TRANSIT/TRAVEL INFO:</strong></span></p>
    <p><span><em>PUBLIC TRANSIT:</em> 2 block walk to bus, 15 minute ride to Red Line subway (T) / Quincy Center (where there are also lots of restaurants &amp; pubs. 5 minutes' bus in other direction to Hingham marina w/shops, restaurants, movies)</span></p>
    <p><span><em>TOTAL TRAVEL TIME:</em> approx. 45 minutes via rush hour driving OR mass transit to most areas of Boston including suburbs. The MBTA (mass transit) has a very thorough &ldquo;how to get there&rdquo; website, *** Please consult it or G. maps for travel times from &ldquo;corner of Pilgrim Rd. &amp; North St. in North Weymouth, MA&rdquo; to your destinations before writing to ask me for transit info! *** I&rsquo;d just be consulting the same websites or copy &amp; pasting this paragraph, unless you have questions those sites can&rsquo;t answer : )</span></p>
    <p><span><em>Drivers enjoy our guaranteed free parking</em> right in front!</span></p>

      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!

      1-2 beautiful rooms in Concord, MA
      <span>Fantastic location in the heart of charming Concord Center home of the revolution, Thoreau, Emerson, Walden Pond and 30/45 minutes from downtown Boston &amp; 30 minutes from Cambridge. There is a commuter train less than 1 mile from our house that is easily walkable so having a car though nice is optional. </span><br /><span><strong>Please note that we have 2 bedrooms (First room is $95/night 2nd room is $75/night) each with a queen bed so we can accommodate up to 4 guests. </strong>Sorry but $95 is not for both rooms. You can pay for the 2nd room if you want it when you arrive. There is a private bath shared by the 2 rooms. I do not rent out the rooms to separate groups at the same time since there is one bathroom for the 2 rooms. </span><br /><span> AC or fans provided when needed. Fridge use and light kitchen use.</span><br /><span>Our street is tree lined and quiet even though steps away from restaurants, music, shopping, cafes, parks, theater, conservation land &amp; a terrific yoga studio. We border beautiful walking &amp; running trails. Concord is a mecca for road bikers, historians, tourists &amp; athletes.&nbsp; </span><br /><br />

      Spacious & Modern, Sun-soaked Room!
      <span>This beautiful, sun-soaked apartment is fully furnished, with linens, bedroom furniture and a living room set. We are just a short walk from Kendall Square, and the hustle and bustle of MIT, Harvard, and dozens of other local companies and research institutes! It is perfect for the traveling academic or businessperson looking for that home away from home. The kitchen is modern, granite/stainless steel, fully stocked with cook-, dish-, and silver-ware.</span>
      <p><span>- Free Laundry</span><br /><span>- Free Wi-Fi</span><br /><span>- Free HBO</span><br /><span>- Streampix (Comcast's Netflix)</span><br /><span>- Full Kitchen</span><br /><span>- Secluded Patio Area</span></p>
      <p><span>We will be present for check-in, and will be available whenever for any contingency that should arise. Our guest's comfort and satisfaction is our priority.</span></p>
      <p><span>Our apartment is just at the edge of MIT's campus in Cambridge, just a block from nice bars and cafes, and 2 blocks from a movie theater. Be sure to check out Toscanini's Ice Cream ("Best Ice Cream in the World!" - New York Times), Flour Bakery for their famous morning cinnamon buns, and Flattop Johnny's for your inner pool hustler (and just to check out the locals). Lord Hobo, a great bar with awesome food (and "Best Neighborhood Spot", according to the Dig This Awards), is just a 3 minute walk from our front door.</span></p>
      <p><span>We are just 7 minutes from Harvard Square by T. The Red Line is only a 10-minute walk away in Kendall Square, where there are also multiple fine dining options for a nice night out on the town. There are multiple Hubway bicycle rental spots within several blocks of the apartment, in case you want to ride around the city and enjoy the weather - and the beautiful sights!</span></p>
      <p><span>You can't help but enjoy the setting that is found along the Charles River. You can find walking paths, bike paths, and the popular Hatch Memorial Shell with live concerts all while watching the Regatta teams practice on the river. You can see historical downtown looming in the distance and watch the busy traffic speed by while relaxing along the beautiful shore.</span></p>
