How much do I interact with Guests?
I like to leave that up to you, with all the space & privacy desired, however there are a few things that are kind of important and helpful to know, so I normally allow a five minuet introduction for a little tour of the apartment, a map orientation of the neighborhood, and to answer any pressing questions.
Our Herbivorian House manual with detailed rules and helpful information is present in each apartment.
The Apartment must be left as clean as it was found, (especially the kitchen and bathroom) cleaning supplies are present in the apartment. (we are responsible for washing sheets and towels)
No loud or late night noises or parties.
No additional guests
No red meat or strong smelling meats shall be cooked (the smell disturbs our primarily vegetarian guests)
Pleasant behavior to all other building residents.
Any questions assistance needed please contact us we are happy to help.
There is now only 2 hours of public street parking available (residential zone, just changed April 2016) In a triangle directly infrount of our building (we will check on non residential parking availability, and are looking for alternative parking, but call us first is bring a car) Both sides of the streets are ok for 2 hours except on street cleaning days (on one side 1st and third Tuesday, on the other side 2nd and 4th Tuesday, (but check signs in case there are changes) Also be aware of indentations in the curb (wheal chair access) and handle cap parking. closer then 5 ft from a corner or fire hydrant is also a ticket and towable offense.
We are a 10 min walk down the hill to the "T" Airport subway station on the "Blue Line" the trains during the week days run very frequently every 2-4 minuets on the weekends every 5-7 minuets. From the Airport stop it is only 3-4 minuets to the "Aquarium" "State Street" and Government Center" T stops.. which are close to the freedom trail and many of the the downtown Historic sights. We have many of the tourist brochures and maps and we will be happy to advise in more detail when you get here.
Yoga teacher, vegan, green minded nature lover, artisan.
In the mid 70’s at seventeen after high school my father gave me a
ticket to Europe to pursue a spiritual quest, after a long journey I joined a group of european Indian monks/ sadhus’s in Switzerland.. taking a spiritual initiation from swami Srila Prabhupada that lead to a trip overland to India.
Since then.. teaching yoga, a vegetarian/ vegan diet, spirit centered art, music and philosophy have been my life core.
I started Herbivorian House in 2004 with the idea of having an artsy alternate resting place, in the hope of attracting somewhat like minded eco friendly people, though we are open to and graciously welcome all.
