A VILLAGE BED AND BREAKFAST is located in a Queen Anne Victorian (1894) in the heart of Newton Highlands, a delightful village in the City of Newton ("The Garden City"), rated in the top five safest cities in the U.S. (twice at number one) and most recently named Number 3 in CNN/Money.com's Top 100 Places to Live.
A Village B & B is just one block to the streetcar to Boston, walking distance to Crystal Lake, and Cold Spring Park's wooded path, and minutes from all the major transportation routes, Interstate 95/Route 128, Route 9, and the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90). Going to or from Boston or Logan airport by public transportation or car is quick, easy and direct. Off street parking is available.
The Village of Newton Highlands has many restaurants and shops which delight visitors, and within a stone's throw are the neighboring villages of Waban, Newton Center, Newtonville, and Auburndale all with their own array of charming restaurants and shopping. You won't want to miss the crafts, clothing, antique shops, and salons available within a three block radius.
Just a short distance from the Highlands is the Charles River Kayak and Canoe rental location on the Charles River in Auburndale, another Newton village. Crystal Lake is a short walk for nearby summer swimming or walking or jogging any time of year. Jogging along the nearby Boston Marathon route or around Crystal Lake is perfect for the active traveler as well as a walk through the wooded paths of Cold Spring Park. And for high quality film, the West Newton Cinema is a short distance to catch the latest movie you've been too busy to see.
Leave your car with us, and enjoy the many attractions and neighborhoods of Boston: museums, theater, historic tours, are just a streetcar trip away. Don't miss the North End with cobblestone streets and fabulous Italian food and a real European feel, the hip South End with its toney restaurants, theater and shops, or walk the Freedom Trail or enjoy a day of shopping at Fanueil Hall, stroll down Newbury Street, or pop by the Boston Public Library for a treat -- see what's up at the Boston Symphony, the Science Museum, or what's blooming at the Public Garden. At Boston Harbor you'll find many day trips through the Harbor, as well as the ferry to Provincetown if a one day stay on the cape minus the traffic appeals to you.
