At the end of my several days' stay at On the Park, I told Betty and Marcos that I could pay them no higher compliment than to say that I felt as comfortable staying with them as I do in my own home. They are truly warm and gracious hosts. Their home (including the beds) is extremely comfortable, and it...

I've had the pleasure of staying at On the Park twice (once for business and once while in town visiting family), and can't wait to return! This picturesque home-turned-B&B nestled right next to a park in Brookline will become your absolute favorite place to hang your hat for a night or two (or three!). From the amazing location and beautiful...

We had a wonderful stay with Betsy and Marcos during Halloween. The BnB had a very very warm and welcoming atmosphere which indeed was enhanced by the hosts' concern and friendliness. We particularly enjoyed the fresh bagels and fruit salad in the morning. On the Park is clean, comfortable and beautifully located in Columbia Park at convenient distance to Coolidge...

Clean, comfortable, safe and secure. Great breakfast, including the best fresh fruit salad ever! Beautiful home in a lovely residential neighborhood--an easy walk to shopping, restaurants, entertainment and public transportation. Reliable WiFi, parking, two porches, beautiful antique clocks and handmade pottery! Thanks for a great weekend!

On the Park B & B is an old house situated in a very nice area near the Jewish Quarter in Brookline / Boston. The hosts were not present upon our arrival, but they had left a welcome and introduction to us. Our room was not flashy but adequate and clean and next to the bathroom, which belonged to the...

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Marcos and Betsy's place while visiting our son, who is a student at Boston University. (So convenient when restaurants, movies, and shopping are within walking distance - no car necessary!). The company and comfort were top-notch. We were told in advance there was another family with children staying at the house...

We spent 9 nights at 'On the Park'. The B&B is clean, homey and is beautifully located ON A PARK in a quiet yet lively Coolidge Corner neighbourhood. But more than that, the owners are extremely attentive and welcoming. A hearty breakfast was served every morning, along with lots of great coffee. Enjoying a glass of wine on the beautiful...

88 on the park is a perfect B&B, we stayed here for 3 days in June 2016 with our two children. We had two large bedrooms with a bathroom shared between us. The hosts Betsy and Marco are extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are very clean and the homemade breakfast is wonderful.

We returned to On the Park for a four-day visit in May 2016, after a year's absence. We had to make sure we could stay here before we made our plane reservations. Betsy and Marcos are the best. They maintain a very high standard, and we will plan our next trip to Boston around availability of a room being available....

We have stayed at On the Park three times, and always enjoy our visits. Betsy and Marcos are warm and gracious hosts who make you feel comfortable from the moment you enter their B&B. The guest rooms are cozy and clean, and the breakfasts are delicious and satisfying. We have had delightful conversations with other guests over breakfast and while...
