I stayed at the Feathered Nest two nights, and it was delightful in every way. I had a spacious, comfortable 3rd floor bedroom with shared bath. The property is immaculately clean, and beautifully appointed with older wood furniture and varied floral fabrics -- imagine staying in your best friend's home that has been in her family for generations. The kitchen was beautiful and very nice to fix my early a.m. coffee. Jean had driveway space for my car, which was incredibly convenient. ~ Thank you Jean and see you again soon! ~

Our stay at Antrim House has been great. We experienced the Antrim street yard sale and Jean introduced us to some of the local residents. Perfect!

what a great place to stay!

I stay at Antrim House every chance I can. I wouldn't stay any place else. The proprietress treats me like family. It's my home away from home. I love it.

I was a bit disapointed by the lack of breakfast but this is a guesthouse, not a B&B. Otherwise this is a perfect place for visits to Boston, MIT or Harvard. Nice house, nice gardent, perfect location.

Warm & Wonderful
