Lovely home with very gracious host - my friends and I arrived for our reunion, and Steve had stocked the kitchen with milk and even a coffee cake! Nice outdoor space for grilling in the backyard, and extremely convenient to Phillips Academy. (You will want a car, though) I look forward to staying here again!

About the neighbourhood
