Fantastic stay in Newton...

5 on June 06, 2012

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!

Deep appreciation

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!

Outstanding, exceeding my expectations... just lovely

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

What a wonderful stay!

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.

An experience to enjoy!

My husband and I had the great fortune of recently staying at the Alderwood. Myra and Richard were the quintessential wonderful hosts and provided us with a very clean and comfy room, a wonderful daily breakfast, and terrific conversation. We will recommend the Alderwood to our friends and family who plan a visit to Boston. Very Happy Guests from Dallas.
