Stay in a Victorian-era carriage house (built for a summer home) in a great location. It's bright, light-filled, cozy--you'll be very comfortable! By car or train, Boston is just 20 minutes away. Melrose has Victorian houses, a very appealing setting next to the Fells, and a Main Street with many restaurants and shops, in a real small town with grocery stores and everything you might need. It's a friendly town in an attractive location, and this is a beautiful "home base" with great amenities.
