We were moving our daughter, senior at BU, into her new apartment in Brookline. The "On the Park" B&B was the perfect spot to spend a few days with her before having to say good bye to her until May.

We have been staying at On the Park since it first opened and have always found it warm and welcoming. Our stay earlier this month was only for one night, but it was relaxing and comfortable. It remains one of the quietest B&Bs we've ever stayed at. No street noise and the rooms are well separated from each other. On...
