Park Lane Bed & Breakfast

11 Park Lane , Newton, MA 02459 USA (Show map)


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.

We just returned from a 3-night stay at this delightful B & B. Jim and Patti were fabulous, and we feel like they are family now. They went out of their way to make us feel at home. They picked us up at the train station, drove us to a restaurant, and apartment building 3 miles away, and then took us to the train station when we left. The house is pristine and comfortable. The beds were great, and the setting is beautiful. The breakfast was delicious and healthy. It included, fruit, cereals, eggs, home-made bread and many jams. I know I will be staying here on future visits. Thank you, Jim and Patti. YOU ARE GREAT!

After one short visit, Jim and Patti are now my favorite innkeepers. Staying at the Park Lane B&B is like visiting a favorite aunt and uncle. The beds are comfy, the breakfast spot on, and the house is a home. But most of all, when you stay here, you get to shoot the breeze with two insightful people who love life. For half the cost of a Boston hotel! Our stay was a delight.

Wonderful experience!

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...

Homey, helpful, yummy

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.

My stay with Jim & Pat was very delightful. Also they gave very helpful info about how to find the B&B from the ariport. Delightful company and helpful info about how to get around and what could be of interest for you. Very good WIFI, and quiet surroundings. I enjoyed my stay in an American home.

And great wi-fi too!

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.

Special dietary help.

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

Super recommended.

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

A comfortable place to stay

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
