Owner goes way above and beyond in welcoming renters- it was a “wow” experience for us. Food, lighting, music; we rented for almost 2 weeks over Christmas and the seasonal décor alone was impressive. Refrigerator stocked for breakfast, fruit, etc. Home is in excellent condition, well maintained and it feels like owner is quite literally welcoming you into her much-loved home. Things work, the kitchen is super well equipped (far beyond any rental kitchen in my experience, and I have seen a lot of rental kitchens). If you have a couple of families with children this home is ideal==> two bedrooms for two sets of parents, and multiple children-capable beds in the basement, the main floor and on the second. Lovely master bedroom upstairs— if anything, the photos do not do the home justice. My husband enjoyed working in the mornings in the office off the living/family room- bright, lots of windows, well equipped. We loved it. If we come back, which is likely, we will try to rent this home again. Thanks so much.

Our motley crew loved every moment here and enjoyed plenty of room wherein we could all get away from each other and then be together as much as we wanted. Great, great home for kids to play and explore and everything you would have ever thought to need is here - including some basic food items! Wow. Elizabeth is the best hostess I’ve encountered on AirBnB and it’s almost as though she is there hosting you in person. By far one of our favorite places worldwide.
We had such a fabulous stay & Beth is an absolutely amazing host!! This house has everything you need: a well-stocked kitchen with food to welcome you, comfortable beds, plenty of space to spread out, charming interior design, games, entertainment, convenient location & delightful surprises. It was very hard to leave! I can't recommend it highly enough.
You won’t be disappointed staying here!! Great location and house has everything you need and then some. As a host myself, I was extremely pleased with everything! Can’t wait to go back.
From the moment I walked in I teared up because the place was more wonderful than the online pictures can convey. The furnishings were in excellent condition and SO comfortable and inviting. Almost every morning we would find ourselves one by one gathering in the little sunroom off the front porch with an excellent cup of coffee, and just talk and laugh the morning away. Beth has excellent taste in artwork which is on every wall and shelf. So many wonderful, thoughtful touches throughout the house! She has thought of everything you may need and it shows her heart in wanting your stay to be the best it could be. The kitchen - was incredibly well-equipped and even stocked, so if you love to cook like me, you will thoroughly enjoy it. But even if you don’t want to cook, there are so many wonderful restaurants nearby! The house is in the historic district and is such a beautiful neighborhood of large old houses that are in such pristine condition. If you have kids, this would be a dream place for them too with so many things for them to explore and enjoy at the house. This time it was just me, my husband and mother-in-law, but I could see us booking it again with much more family hopefully in the future. One big reason we chose this property was because I was looking for a comfortable place with minimal steps that had a great bedroom on the main floor for my 87 year old mother-in-law who also walks with a cane. She felt so good and safe getting around here, and we are so grateful for the memories made here. She used to be a painter too so she really enjoyed the artwork. Thank you so much for your attention to details which did not go unnoticed.
This was our 2nd visit at the Sumac Inn. There were 6 adults and 3 kids in our group along with our four legged family members.
When we arrived there was Christmas music playing, fresh flowers on the kitchen table & baskets of goodies. This home has everything you need! The kitchen is fully stocked & we enjoyed cooking several meals.
There was plenty of room for all to spread out. The kids loved the basement room filled with games and toys and a sitting area with TV.
While we were here, we were pleasantly surprised with snow!! We enjoyed driving around the neighborhood and seeing all the beautiful homes covered in snow. The Sumac Inn is located close to so many attractions & is in the Old North End, which is such a charming area. I can’t say enough about how happy we all were with our stay! Beth goes above and beyond for her guests. Our family will be back!
We booked well in advanced with Beth. She was very easy to communicate with. Everything went smoothly, the home was well equipped for any situation. We had some small children with us and were worried that Santa might pass them by since they were not home for Christmas. Beth had a small tree with ornaments for us to decorate with. This thoughtful act was a beautiful touch that made our stay wonderful. The Craftsman house and Beth running it are a winning combination.
The home on Fontanero is impressive and comfortable. Beth went above and beyond in preparing the place for our stay. You will not be disappointed in staying at this wonderful property.
The house was beautiful, and had plenty of room to spread out. It fit the description perfectly. We liked being so close to the downtown area with so many fun restaurants and shops!
Renting this home was awesome. House came fully stocked with everything we needed for our convenience. Place was clean and beautifully decorated.
