This renovated Victorian-style guesthouse sits in a residential part of Brookline, about equidistant from Coolidge Corner and the Harvard Medical Area. A stay here feels like visiting a relative—not fancy, but comfortable and welcoming. All but one of the well-kept, pleasantly decorated guest rooms have their own bathroom; the other unit’s facilities are across the hall. Guests have the use of a kitchen, dining room, and coin-op washer and dryer, and there’s seating on a pleasant porch and patio. The playground, tennis courts, and running track at the public school next door are open to the public.
