In town for a wedding, I returned to On the Park for a pair of autumn nights and received another warm welcome from Betsy and Marcos. Their home is cozy, quiet and comfortable. Mornings in the sunlit dining room are a pleasure. With a wonderful music playlist setting a relaxing tone, the most difficult part is choosing which of the...

It was a cold, blustery fall day and I was delighted to find myself once again on the way to On the Park. I was warmly welcomed by Betsy and Marcos who have a special way of making you feel like a friend rather than just another guest. They offer all the amenities - a comfortable bed, crisp linens and...

The rooms are comfy and the breakfasts good. The location is excellent, a short walk away from the train which has a quick and frequent service into town. Marcos and Betsy are excellent hosts and make you feel very at home. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening watching the world go by. There are bars and restaurants...

Staying at On The Park was like visiting family. I immediately felt at home and was warmly welcomed by Betsy and Marcos. I stayed in one of their daughter's rooms with an adjacent private bath. The room was clean, comfortable and was complete with family photos. The couple takes great pride in the Inn. They offer a nice continental breakfast...

It's Boston, it's busy. No not really. It's quiet. A great neighborhood. Sit on the porch. Watch the families in the park, the kids playing b-ball, the summer showers. Go out. It's Brookline. History, JFK birthplace, egg creams( I'm not kidding). Kids, families, everyone on the street walking and talking. Check out "When Pigs Fly' for the best bread, check...

This was a nice find and a great location just off the C and B line train in Brookline. 10 minute walk to the train and you are center city in 25 minutes. Beautiful home with nice rooms and bathrooms. Entire process was smooth and host is very responsive to emails and calls. Will stay here again.

Good location! There are some many good restaurants nearby. And it is convenient to go to the downtown. The owners are really welcome. It is also easily to go to the Harvard. There is a bus stop nearby. It is a great hotel!

Our stay coincided with rain, clouds, and 68 degree temperatures. Betsy and Marcos are excellent hosts who went out of their way to accommodate our needs, including an early breakfast on the day of our departure. This B&B is in a quiet neighborhood, across the street from a small park which is ideal for kids to play or grownups to...

I reviewed On the Park in October 2014. My wife and I stayed there again in June 2015. Another wonderful experience. It being warm this time, we were able to enjoy our morning coffee on the deck upstairs, listen to the birds, watch the squirrels, and enjoy the ambience of a quiet residential location across the street from a lovely...
