From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel like family at this delightful B&B on one of the nicest streets in Brookline. A former home where five children were raised is now a cozy and welcoming retreat in a very safe and quiet neighborhood. The house is convenient to both bus and train stops as well as some...

4 girls came back to this same place that we rented 25 years ago for a 25 year reunion for medical school.. BETSY AND MARCOS still look the same and were great hosts. The beds were comfy , we hung out in the living room catching up with each other, and enjoyed a nice breakfast together. IT WAS THE PERFECT...

This fabulous B& B is conveniently located between the B and C T lines in a beautiful neighborhood. The bedrooms, bathroom, and living room are very clean and have so much character. From the lovey quilts, robes in closet, and hand made pottery mugs and dishes, you feel welcomed and pampered. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, granola, and pastries....

The location alone makes this a great place--safe and convenient to everything (greater Boston by public transportation and Coolidge Corner by foot) and tucked inside a cozy, quiet victorian neighborhood with tree-lined streets and a wonderfully equipped park just across the street. (A godsend if you are travelling with children) The accommodations are generous and very, very comfortable. The breakfast...

The hosts, Betsy and Marcos, take great care to provide a B&B that meets the needs of their patrons and seem to really enjoy doing so. As a result I felt welcomed, enjoyed my privacy, and felt well taken care of. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very clean. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. My husband and I...

This B&B is set on a quiet park just around the corner from Coolidge Corner in Brookline. It's close to plenty of shops, activity and public transportation. It is clear that the incredibly hospitably hosts love having guests in their home. The beds and bedding match any high end hotel. It is a wonderful place to stay when in Boston!

On the Park, located in historic Brookine, is walking distance to shopping and transportation, across from a park that is beautifully maintained. Timely schedule, fresh flowers and charming decor welcome visitors. Daily full breakfast, newspaper, charming bedrooms, full bathroom; all immaculate. 'On the Park' is definitely a favorite.

I stayed here for a delightful few days and I highly recommend it. My room was very clean and cosy and the hosts gave me privacy in addition to a delicious breakfast in the morning. The area is wonderful as well -- right next to the park and a 5-10 minute walk to Coolidge Corner and the T.

I usually come to Boston once or twice a year and I always stay at On the Park. You are greeted like a long lost member of the family by the warm and gracious owners, Betsy and Marcos. They have created a charming atmosphere in their home where you feel comfortable immediately. The living room and dining room are very...

We stayed here for three days of a long trip and we needed to feel comfortable and at home -- and couldn't have felt more so! The B&B is thoughtfully appointed for both function and aesthetics from the hand crafted coffee mugs to the reading lamps on both sides of the bed. It feels warm, welcoming, and peaceful. And most...
