A well-designed bedroom, in a historical 19th century Boston Brownstone. Sunny north facing large windows looking over the treetops and partial city skyline. Modern shared bathroom next to bedroom in an international & professional household. Located in historic Fort Hill/Highland Park neighborhood, 5 min walk to the T (Metro) Orange line, 3rd stop from Back Bay city center, walk to Longwood Medical Area, MFA, Northeastern, Fenway & South End.

The space

Welcome to my home at Alvah Kittredge Brownstone in the historic, friendly and diverse neighborhood of Fort Hill/Highland Park.

The House:
My 142 year-old, newly restored classic Boston Brownstone home has four equally unique bedrooms available in this 3 level penthouse apartment (see also Custom Bedroom, Master Bedroom Suite, & Loft Bedroom).

The Room:
A well balanced blend of modern and historic. The bedroom is well designed for a guest and ideal for long term stays. Plenty of storage to unload into the built-in closet, and drawers. 120sqft (11.2sqm).

Guest access

Dedicated kitchen pantry (with green personal cups, mugs, bowls, plates, pans and utensils), fridge, washer and dryer, kitchen, living room.

Other things to note

The house is actually as it seems in the photos everyday; well maintained common spaces, so I simply ask guests to clean after themselves to leave the common space in order.

The Modern Bedroom is part of my 4 bedroom apartment, and shares a common bathroom next to it with two other guest bedrooms. (3 flights of stairs total)

Our area is considered safe and quiet for Boston, but this is the city, and anything can happen anywhere at any time so I always like to tell people to have common sense in travels in the whole city. We are walking distance to many good cafes, bars, restaurants down Tremont st past the T (metro station) and a ~$8 Uber ride to the nightlife of the Back Bay.

Stunning place to stay, immaculately presented, gorgeous neighbourhood. Jonathan is nice guy and a great host. All the best places make you wish you could just live there - this is definitely one of them.

Jonathan was a great host, super commutative and considerate. House was clean, very organize and a great place overall. Its close location next to the orange line made it super easy to use Boston Transit. We ended up parking right outside and leaving our car there for the remainder of our stay with zero problems.

The modern bedroom is very spacious, has alot of natural sunlight and plenty of storage for clothes and other items if you have an extended stay. The home itself is very modern and newly renovated. The neighborhood isn't the greatest, but I never felt unsafe, even at night. The train station is a short walk away with a 15 minute ride to downtown. Highly recommended at a very reasonable price. Jonathan is a great host, easy to deal with and responds quickly to any questions or concerns. Aside from a miscommunication regarding a late check out, everything from check in to my exit wentry smoothly.

Jonathan is a great host; we were welcomed with a pitcher of water, a chocolate, and some prepared maps of the surrounding area with descriptions and locations of the local historical sites we may have liked to visit during our stay. We arrived later than expected, and he was kind enough to leave a light on for us. We had no trouble following his very clear instructions, and everything was exactly as described and as seen in photos. The house is beautifully renovated and very well maintained. It was as clean as a hotel room would be, but more nicely decorated and with much more character! The neighbourhood is quiet, and conveniently located at only about a 5 minute walk from the T. An Uber into the city (Fenway) cost us an average of $7. We would definitely stay here again!

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay at Jonathan's place in Boston. The house is very clean, and Jonathan is super friendly and accommodating to our early check-in and late check-out time. Would love to stay again at his place when we visit Boston.

My boyfriend and I just had a wonderful stay in Boston at Jonathan's place. He was an excellent host who made sure every detail was taken care of. The place was extremely neat and clean, great system with the keys in order for us to check in and out, fresh water in our room, a separate area in the bathroom and kitchen for guests needs, and he even messaged us frequently to see how our trip was going. Only met him once but he was a very outgoing, friendly, intelligent guy who was happy to help us with our plans. The location of the house is great as its a quick walk to the T stop and Boston is very easy to get around with the subway. The only thing we found was we preferred to take an Uber home at night which was no problem as its a short and inexpensive trip from downtown. Would definitely love to stay at Jonathan's place again next time we're in Boston!

Interaction with guests

I'm a social and hospitable host who loves to share his home with others. I was born and raised in Boston, went to university literally down the road at Northeastern and so with plenty of knowledge I would be more than happy to help. I work from home and so usually around if you ever needed anything. My mother lives in a separate apartment downstairs (so please feel free to say hi if you cross paths with her) and I stay at my girlfriend's apartment across the park. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well.

About Jonathan

Born and raised in Boston, to parents from former Portuguese islands in the Atlantic ocean. I'm an international, global citizen who loves travel, food, cultures, languages, history, current events and much more. I'm a former biomedical engineer (cardiovascular, sports medicine) now working in residential real estate (investments, design & development, management) & loving it! I also spend time on issues I'm passionate on, one of which is education where I sit on the board of a school.

I love hosting guests in my home and getting to meet different people from all over the world and give them the best experience in my home that I look for when I travel all over on Airbnb.

Fun fact: I studied Mandarin for 6 years and sadly forgot most of it, so I'd love to practice it with you if you speak it :)
