This beautiful Private third floor guest suite is located in the historic Diamond District of Lynn, Massachusetts one block from the ocean. The unit is in a Victorian home in a lovely neighborhood that has all the charm of New England. It has a private entrance and is really like an apartment with everything you need to enjoy the area.

The space

The suite is an attic space added as a private guest area in my home. It does have low ceilings because it is the attic but many tall guests have stayed there just watch your head on the angles. I have hosted many guests there from all over the world and they loved it. It is very close to Boston and Salem, Massachusetts. A perfect location to explore these great cities and many other parts of New England, especially during the beautiful fall leaf season, and Salem for Halloween and the 'Haunted Happenings' for the month of October. The space is up 2 flights of stairs. The unit is one large L-shaped room with a private bath with a shower. It has a small refrigerator, single brew coffee maker, and microwave, and toaster-oven. I provide some snacks and drinks for your convenience. There is a beautiful wrap around porch with deck chairs and a hammock to enjoy.

Guest access

Interaction with guests

I am available to help you get settled and answer questions about the area as well as provide tips about points of interest. I have lived in the house since 1986 and was in the airline industry, so I am an expert at assisting travelers, but you need not have any interaction with me if you prefer, and I will just arrange to give you the key.

Other things to note

We do have a medium size lab mix that lives in the house completely separate from the guest suite. He is very friendly and quiet and he is not there all the time.

Great location and host! We were warmly greeted upon arrival. We had snacks and drinks also in the room. We enjoyed our vacation in Lynn which is close to Boston, Salem and the beach.

For our first time using Airbnb we weren't really sure what we were getting ourselves into. We soon realized that it was a whole lot better than checking into a hotel. Our host Catherine made us feel like we were staying at a second home or at a friends house; she was really awesome and super helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Catherine also give us recommendations on places to eat and places to visit during our stay.

Catherine's room is in an attic of an old house in a historical neighborhood near Lynn shore north of Boston. It is very much as described. There is a double bed and a couch that folds into a small bed. There is plenty of room up in the attic. It has a refrigerator, a coffee maker and Catherine left us plenty of snacks. The shore area has some restaurants within walking distance and beaches too. It is about 30-45 minutes to downtown Boston, but closer to Salem and Marblehead. There are steep stairs to get to the attic and low ceilings, so this is probably not the place for people with physical disabilities or those who are very tall. That being said we enjoyed our stay in Catherine's attic and found the north shore of Boston to be lovely. Try The Blue Ox restaurant if you go to Catherine's. It has delicious food. Thank you Catherine for a peaceful visit.

Catherine was such a gracious host. It was fun staying in the attic in the gorgeous Victorian house and leaving behind treasured memories. We got to visit Salem and Boston and to enjoy the sunset while walking at Nahant Beach. The neighborhood is filled with lovely late 19th century homes. Highly recommended for sure!!

Catherine was a very gracious host. Her communications made it very easy to check in and out. We were in the process of moving to New England, and she was a great source of information about the local communities and things to see and do. The location of her home so close to a beautiful beach and park was a wonderful surprise. The room itself was very comfortable and clean, with an ensuite bathroom and sitting area. It had plenty of room for us, our cat and all the temporary moving items we'd hauled across the country. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend Catherine's hospitality.

My 18 year old daughter and I have used airbnb many times travelling all around the word and we have had great experiences. I realized my own home would make a perfect spot for someone who wants to come to the Boston area. I worked for the Airlines (TWA) for 23 years and used t…
