Large but cozy bedroom with lots of natural light and hard wood floors and comfortable full bed. My decor can be described as a fusion of modern and antique.

The space

Charming antique 1870, Victorian house, high ceilings, 4 fireplaces. A beautiful porch creates a private courtyard: a perfect place to read, eat and play. Great location: 25 minute drive to downtown Boston, 5 minute drive to train station, 5 minute walk to historic downtown. Loads of parking. Cute dog! Price per room.

Full beds in both rooms. Hardwood floors and antique moldings. One room has a bay window, the other room has 3 large windows. The rooms are quite, spacious, airy and sunny. Lots of closet space.

The courtyard is the perfect place to relax. We live on a small, quiet street, which makes sitting outside very pleasant. There is a grand piano in the living room, available to guests. I have a full kitchen, library with computer and internet, which is also available for guest use.

I have a very sweet, easy going dog.

Guest access

Guests are welcomed to use the library, porch
Plenty of parking.

Interaction with guests

My dog, Penny and I will be present during your stay. We will be in and out during the day and I will be happy to chat and give you recommendations. I was born and raised here and know the ins-and-outs of the Boston area. I can help with sightseeing, give advice on little known gems of Boston.

If you would like quiet and privacy there is plenty of room to read, work, etc...

Rosanne's place was charming. I stayed there with my girlfriend for one night on very short notice. She was a very nice woman and she even has a hand written itinerary waiting in the room when you get there. The room used to be her daughters room, the house is old but well kept with a lot of nice built in craftsmanship. She stayed completely away after the welcomed us which was nice and we had access to the kitchen and backyard and plenty of amenities. She was only about 20 minutes from downtown Boston and at a moderate price.

Roseanne's place is beautiful, quiet, clean, and welcoming! Exactly what I needed and hoped for. Penny the dog is also super sweet and well behaved. Look forward to staying here again, when in the area.

Rosanne was an wonderful gracious host! Her home is most inviting, artful, clean, warm and inviting. Modest breakfast available and many quaint restaurants and shops within a two block walking distance. beautiful and comfortable porch in the back of home to relax and enjoy nature! There are many historical buildings and parks/walking paths. Highly recommend and thanks to Rosanne, I am looking forward to my next visit to Dedham.

This place is just as it's described, I loved the fact there was much privacy yet if I needed something I could communicate with the host. The house is about 150 years old, so it has its own character, along with the neighborhood, and Deadham has its own charm. I stayed here for business but wish I had more time for pleasure.

My folks stayed with Rosanne while visiting for a family event. She is a wonderful host - check in was easy and her place is within walking distance of shops and coffee. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Rosanne!

. I have two grown daughters. Our family loves to travel. My favorite destinations are Iceland, New Zealand, and Africa. I often go on volunteer vacations, working with animals. Last vacation was working on a lion reserve in Zimbabwe. I enjoy kayaking, skiing, walking our dog, reading and meeting new people. I work in an antiques auction
