Private room in a charming New England-style 'Cape Cod', modern residence on a quiet cul-de-sac tucked in behind and above route 20 near downtown Northborough and only moments away from major MA highways including routes 495, Mass Pike (90), highway 290, route 9 and 20.
Rental is a private bedroom with separate bath/shower, toilet and sink and free parking for one car. The room is equipped with a queen-sized bed, desk and closet. WiFi included. Steps away from Rte 20 and a Dunkin' Donuts, four miles from the Northborough Town Center Mall (Starbucks, Wegman's, BJ's, Dick's and dozens of other fine shops). We are also about ten miles from the Worcester (pronounced 'whu-ster') city center, Clark University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, College of the Holy Cross and Assumption College.
Our house is only four miles from the Westborough stop on the Worcester Commuter Rail Line (parking is $4/day) putting visitors an hour from Boston's famous South Station and the sights and activities available in downtown Boston. Providence, RI is only forty minutes away by car.
Our home is very private and centrally located, only minutes from the sights and sounds of urban Massachusetts and Rhode Island. It offers a comfortable respite from busy lives and busy days.
NEW IN FALL 2016: for guests requiring another bedroom or two, but are willing to share the bathroom, we can present a SPECIAL OFFER for a full-sized bed in another room, and or a sturdy bunk bed in a third, separate room. Each of the extra rooms is $39/night and only available when booking together with the guest room. Ask about our 'Special offer' to learn more.

I am a runner, professional chauffeur, wife and mother of 4 grown children. My husband and I have no pets and live in a modern Cape Cod style home in a very accessible neighborhood just off route 20 in Northborough MA. According to the US Geological Survey, we live on 'Mount Assabet' which in east-central MA is not particularly high or even elevated. It is quite private and quiet - a great place to stay near Worcester, Providence or Boston for that matter.
We are accessible to the commuter rail (4 miles to the Westborough station on the Worcester line of MBTA's Commuter Rail system), and about 40 minutes west on the Massachusetts Turnpike (route 90) from Logan International Airport, Boston.
