The Park Lane, which provides a sweet alternative to the hub-bub of Boston, is conveniently nestled in the quiet tree-lined streets of Newton, a lovely suburb just West of the city. This large Baronial style stucco, is a quick 7-10 minute walk to the MBTA stop. Convenient and accessible, the "T" (our light rail system) gets you to the heart of Boston in just 20 minutes. There you can meander around easily by foot to visit our new Aquarium, Museum of Fine Arts, the Children's Science Museums, not to mention Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market, the USS Constitution, Beacon Hill and many other historical, amusement and athletic sights. Dine both in Boston and Newton at a variety of American and Ethnic restaurants before you take in a show or the symphony. Jim, a life-long resident (and bicyclist), well- versed on the area, will gladly assist your travel needs and can provide access to rental cars. Two very private guest rooms on the third level are furnished with antiques, share a bath and a hall skylight. A second level third room with private whirlpool bath, queen bed, dressing room and many other amenities, provides a quiet view through the trees. Guests can relax on the lovely front porch (weather permitting). Reservations are required and must be reserved by a credit card.

Jim and Patty are amazing hosts and will help you in anyway they can. They know Boston and were a great resource for day trips and local events/site. The fresh baked bread every morning was amazing! I will be back...

Rooms, support, & breakfast will all be better than you'd dream at Park Lane B & B. Jim and Patti draw you into their home for a spotless room, good bed, hot shower, and excellent Wifi--important for the research trip I made in mid-November. Breakfast includes fresh fruit and fresh bread every morning; support includes directions (+ public transport schedules) to and from wherever you come and go; and if you have time, there's terrific conversation on not only Newton and its environs, but also life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I enjoyed Jim and Patti enormously. If I can make the trip again, I hope they have a room for me.

A short walk via park to downtown Newton, shops and a variety of shops and cafes. Nice, quiet neighborhood, easy to find. Great place to sit out on the front porch. Patti and Jim are friendly and accommodating hosts and know the area well.

Jim and Patti are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the individual attention making us feel at home. They were very accommodating to my gluten-free diet. Public transportation is a short walk away. Very clean. Jim and Patti are very helpful, providing maps and direction and are very knowledgable to the Boston area, making it much easier for a tourist of the area. Highly reccommend. 5/23/10

The place is wonderful and both Innkeepers are extraordinary kind. The Breakfast is amazing- and the location is excellent (5 min walk from the train). Jim -the Innkeeper – helps me a lot planning my trip- and even gave me his new maps as a present. One of the Best B&B! Super recommended. Miron G. Israel

Staying at Park Lane Bed & Breakfast was everything I look for in a B&B. A house with history, interesting deco, artifacts, furniture and photos displayed in the room, hallways, bathroom and parlor. The wifi was a strong connection with no glitches; I was able to view movie trailers and news videos without buffering. Everything thing was clean as could be in my room and the bath, the shower in the tub had plentiful hot water and a strong spray, very satisfying. The bed I slept in was quite comfortable. A good breakfast awaited me in the morning and most important, a carafe of good strong coffee. Pat was very helpful with the reservation arrangements that I needed to change as I had experienced a date mix-up for the purpose I was in Newton, as well as providing addition information for the area and the nearby hospital where my son was staying overnight. I've stayed at several B&Bs in the UK and Park Lane Bed & Breakfast was as good or better than the best of them. John H., from Maine
