A well designed & spacious master suite w/ private en-suite bathroom, in a historical 19th century Boston Brownstone. Full of all daylight from direct sunny south/west facing large windows overlooking a park/square & community garden. 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, Modern Bedroom, & Loft Bedroom).

The Room:
A well balanced blend of modern and historic. The Master Bedroom Suite is well designed for a couple or individual and ideal for short or long term stays. The suite has a spacious walk-in shower and bench seating, double floating vanity. Plenty of storage to unload into the built-in closet, and drawers. 220+sqft (20.4sqm) with every amenity possible, it feels like its own mini apartment in the apartment.

Guest access

Dedicated kitchen pantry (with your own white personal cups, mugs, bowls, plates, pans and utensils), washer and dryer located next to the bedroom, fridge, kitchen, and living room.

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 across the park. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well.

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 Master Bedroom Suite is part of my 4 bedroom apartment. It shares common areas with my housemate and other guests. (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 general common sense in travels in the whole city, that's all. 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 city center.

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Host is so nice and took me around the place and made me comfortable. I would have continued staying but for the availability of the rooms. The house is clean better than described. I would recommend this room to anyone.

Jonathan was amazing! He is a great host and thinks of everything when it comes to hospitality. His place is very close to public transportation which is super helpful in Boston! Will be staying here again!

I very highly recommend this clean, comfortable, and easy private room in Jonathan’s house! The room is neat with a comfy bed, good sheets, a large private bathroom (with a great shower head!) and an in-window but quiet AC unit for those muggy Boston summers. The surrounding neighborhood is safe and quiet. I stayed here for an interview at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and it was really convenient — I walked to and from my interview, even with my suit and shoulder bag. The subway which seems to be able to get you all over Boston (including train stations and the airport) is very close, less than a 5 minute walk. Communication with Jonathan was great — he is super responsive and helpful. He clearly cares a lot about his house and his Airbnbers! Will definitely stay here again if I’m traveling in Boston, and I certainly recommend for business travelers or interviewees!

Jonathan's master bedroom at his Roxbury townhouse is phenomenal. It was extremely clean and comfortable. During my stay I slept very well there and enjoyed the amenities of the townhouse as well as the location which is just a ten minute walk to the Roxbury crossing mbta stop. When I come back to Boston I will definitely stay in the same unit if available and I recommend it highly to other travelers. Jonathan is also extremely responsive and solicitous to his guests. Big up!
