A room with private bathroom in a charming bungalow on Mystic Lake near Boston. Very secluded neighborhood where children play in the street.
Enjoy your breakfast on a porch overlooking the lake. Tenants have access to private beach and gardens.

The space

The location! The house is located on a lake. You see the Prudential tower in the distance. You are near Boston, but yet it feels far away because this neighborhood is like a hidden jewel, with people enjoying the waterfront areas in the summer.

Guest access

The room comes with an adjacent room equipped with a fridge, a microwave and an electric water kettle. You have access to the private beach.

Interaction with guests

I enjoy meeting my guests. We chat a little, but mostly I keep to myself and trust that my guests want the same privacy.

Other things to note

Arlington center has lots of restaurants. You could walk into town in 20 minutes or take bus #350, if you don't have a car.

Beautiful and clean space that is close to a quiet and beautiful body of water, while also being close to the bustling and exciting city of Boston. Cecilia was very kind and warming as well!

If you don't mind a 20-30 minute travel to central Cambridge, this is a great place to stay! The lake is right outside the door and it is an extremely calm and relaxing area to be in, with very friendly neighbours. Cecilia is a great and rather considerate host! The place is clean and very cozy. If you are a light sleeper like me, Cecilia provides you with a set of earplugs, as well as fruits, coffee and what not.

Adequate best describes this AB&B(URL HIDDEN)Pros: Had everything you needed and a nice bench to put 2 large suitcases on. Private entrance from the back of the house. Place to park your vehicle at the back of a long driveway shared by the owner. Kitchenette (previous closet) w/o a sink equipped with a mini fridge with freezer which contained a pitcher of water, quart of half used milk (for coffee), pint of blueberries and 3 English muffins in an opened box. On a side table in the kitchenette was a bowl of apples and bananas and small cereal boxes. There was a small coffee pot with coffee and filters. on a shelf were adequate dishes and utensils. On top of the fridge was a bag of delicious cinnamon bread with a toaster. The host was very nice and accommodating. Cons: No air conditioning. The inside of the room in this house was shabby with old mis-matched furnishings. The picture of the lake is across the street from the house. The bath was not private although the owners don’t use it when the room is rented. It contains many articles belonging to the owners and is situated across a hallway which also opens up to the kitchen of the main house. This space is divided by a curtain across the opening to the kitchen. While the room was adequate, we thought the price was a little too high for this B&B.

Located just outside of Boston but beautiful neighborhood and on the lake! I prefer privacy and it was nice to have my own bathroom. A mini fridge, microwave, toaster and dishes were provided and very convenient. I stayed here for work and Cecelia was very flexible with my schedule. I would stay here again.

Nice house and clean accommodation. Private entrance and bath, beautiful lake front and neighborhood. Clear instructions and timely communications from the host. I enjoyed the stay very much, and will come back for a leisure trip.

Hi and welcome to my home,
I have lived in this beautiful spot since 1984. I was born in Sweden and have my feet in both cultures still. I have worked as a teacher my whole life. For 10 years I ran a company, Backroad Travel in Sweden. I led many bike and walking tours in my native country, where I met many interesting and fun people. I enjoy people from various backgrounds and cultures, and hope to see many of you at my little lake front cottage at some point.
