House in Waltham, Massachusetts, USA

We are a professional couple who enjoy travel, especially our trips to Europe. Since joining Intervac we have had 10 families stay with us in "hospitality exchanges" and we have now visited all of them in France during a spectacular 7-week trip in 2015 that we could not have afforded without the hospitality of our Intervac friends, which then led to a one-year simultaneous exchange which ended 8/13/2018. A magical year for us, successful in every regard.

Our home just west of Boston (about 16km) and a short distance from major highways  is an ideal place from which to explore all of New England.  Easily visit Cape Cod, the rugged coast of Maine, the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont, the many historical sites of Massachusetts and Connecticut, and the sailing capital of Newport, Rhode Island. All are reasonable daytrips from our centrally-located home in Waltham, MA.   Boston is about 4 hours driving time from New York City. We have reasonably good public transportation "for the USA", but it frankly doesn't compare with the frequency and thoroughness of European transportation systems, so a visitor would need to rent a car, at least to get to local reliable public transportation and to conveniently tour the New England area.

Our home is two parts: "Old House" built in 1914 with 3 bedrooms, and "New House" addition added in 2005, with large bedroom, great room and basement room. When we are at home there are still 3 separate bedrooms available, two in "old house" with double beds (though one of them is better for 1 person) and the third in "new house" with a queen sized bed in a room which also has floor space for futon or inflatable beds, both of which we have.  Our largest Intervac exchange has been for 4 adults and 3 adult children, but when a marching band of 12 arrived for a weekend performance in Cambridge we found a place for everyone on a mattress or a couch.  Our 3 full bathrooms and the outdoor shower all got use that weekend. 

We'd be happy to consider any reasonable exchange idea (no more marching bands preferably) with anyone who can later reciprocate. Let's see what we can work out together.  You'll enjoy Boston and New England and we'll have fun meeting you.
