Other things to note
We expect guests to share our values of inclusion: all races, religions, loves, genders, birthplaces, and sizes are welcome in our home.

We have two gentle and friendly cats who warm up quickly to new people.

Due to new local laws, we only accept guest stays of 32 days or more. The nightly rate you see is priced for stays between 32 and 90 days. A small additional discount will be applied to stays longer than 90 days. Outside of this, we do not negotiate the price.

In your booking request please respond briefly to these questions:
1. What experience, if any, do you have using Airbnb or similar short term stay services?
2. What experience, if any, do you have living in a shared space?
3. How would you describe your ideal living environment?

Thanks for looking at our home! We will send more comprehensive information about the house, neighborhood and area before your arrival.

Location

Boston, Massachusetts, United States

The Fort Hill neighborhood is safe, beautiful, and well located in the geographic center of Boston. Subway, bus stops, and Northeastern University are in walking distance. Harvard Medical School and Longwood Medical Area are 0.5 to 1 mile away. There are 4 grocery stores between 0.7 and 1.2 miles away.

The neighborhood is home to the oldest continuously operated wood structure church in Boston, a gorgeous Federal style white church in Elliott Square. It is also home to the Cochituate Standpipe, a water tower located on an American Revolution-era fort. The fort was used to defend Boston from invasion from western roads. The neighborhood is packed with historic homes.

A little more about me: I was born near Boston to a family that arrived in the 1920s from Ireland. I live within one mile of my grandparents' first rented apartments. I'm still close to a rather large extended family and network of friends throughout the Boston area. We have loved being here, for 3 generations in a row. In my professional life I am a health policy researcher and professor of medicine in Boston. Outside of family and work, my interests include art, architecture, and music. Walking distance: Fort Hill and Highland Park are great for walking. In the mornings, head up to a revolutionary war fort (5 minutes) and an 1875 water standpipe that brought city plumbing to Roxbury. Eliot Square a few blocks away is home to an classic New England 1805 church, the oldest surviving wood structure church in the city. Walk 10 minutes to Dudley Square in one direction or Roxbury Crossing and the orange line MBTA subway Stationen the other. Short distance by subway or cab: We are located within three subway stops of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (Andris Nelsons conducting is not to be missed), and 10 minutes by cab to the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. We are within four subway stops of Copley Square, the Pru, South End Restaurants and cafes, shopping on Newbury and Charles Streets, Boston Public Gardens. You are staying in one of Boston's most exciting neighborhoods on one of its best streets. If you want to explore Cambridge, Fenway Park, Harvard, MIT, the North End, the Boston Aquarium, Olmsted's Emerald Necklace, the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston Harbor (the "hahbah") or wherever your travel guide takes you, this home is located centrally. I hope you fall in love with my beautiful home and city during your visit.
