Had a wonderful stay at Richard and Myra's beautiful home. The breakfasts were scrumptious and we felt extremely welcomed at all times. A highly recommended experience!

My stay at the Myra's and Richard's house was exceptionally enjoyable and comfortable! Accommodation was perfect! It was elegantly balanced- private and homely at the same time! The breakfasts were delicious, colorful and artfully arranged. The hosts create very friendly and welcoming environment. Location of the house is convenient and is in walking distance from the center. I strongly recommend this place!

Staying with Myra and Richard at Alderwood for 9 nights has been just `at home', after a few hours. A wonderful, quiet location, comfortably near - but not too near - to the Boston airport. Delicious tasteful breakfast, with lots of creativity. Lovely hosts, helpful and flexible, with broad interests; inspiring conversations. When you are around this area, I do recommend that you stay with Myra and Richard... and I'll be back myself! A from Netherlands

My husband and I stayed with Richard and Myra in September. It was such a great experience. The hosts were exceptionally welcoming and we had great conversations over breakfasts. Their hospitality was very much appreciated. They went above and beyond anything we would have expected. We highly recommend Alderwood to anyone who would like to feel welcomed into Myra and Richard's lovely home and have a very comfortable stay with wonderful breakfasts and great conversations.
