Newly renovated with pristine, modern decor, the carriage house offers a private retreat in the heart of Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood. Set in a quiet, off-street location, just steps from shops, restaurants, public transportation, parks and more.
Back in 1907, the carriage house was home to one of the world's oldest horses: Jeff, a 38-year-old "equine Methuselah," per a Boston Globe article of that era. While Jeff is sadly long gone, many of the structure's historic details have been preserved, including the original floorboards, a sliding stall door, and a pulley once used to lift hay up to the loft. Today, that hayloft is a bright 625 square foot studio apartment, perfectly suited for a single traveler or couple.
The carriage house is a stand-alone building, with a private entrance. As our guest, you'll enjoy full run of the apartment.
We have a Bose speaker compatible with your iPod or iPhone, and a flatscreen TV with OTA network channels and Roku. (We have Netflix; guests are welcome to sign into their own cable accounts for additional programming.) We also offer a selection of board games for traditional fun.
We respect our guests' privacy, but are available to answer questions and offer assistance as needed, either in person or by email/text/phone.
Please park in the spot on the right at the sidewalk end of our driveway, just as you turn in.
Because the apartment must be accessed by a short, steep flight of stairs (pictured), it is not appropriate for mobility impaired individuals.
We do not offer laundry services; however, there are a number of laundromats within walking distance.
NO smoking or drugs anywhere on property; NO pets; NO unauthorized guests. We regret that we can not provide a suitable listing for children. Please do not request exceptions. Violation of house rules will result in loss of security deposit. We expect guests to be respectful of our property and the neighborhood. Please remove shoes in downstairs entryway. Please confine eating to the kitchen/counter area. Upon check out, please leave the apartment as close to how you found it as possible. Thank you!
I'm a freelance writer and mother of two, married to Tom, a psychiatrist. We love to stay in beautiful, unique spaces when we travel, and as hosts, we aim to provide the same for our guests.
Our hobbies include skiing, running, tennis (me) and golf (him). We both have a fairly healthy obsession with interior design.
