The area surrounding Boston is one of great beauty that will make for a sparkling winter getaway. The wonderful terrain of Boston will be rendered a winter wonderland when covered in powdery snow and icy frost.

Ice-skating, snow-boarding, and snow-shoeing are also to be enjoyed. If this all seems a bit too strenuous, then why not try a long winter hike through the snowy countryside? And if all of that still sounds too taxing, then return to your rental and cozy up with a hot drink and a roaring fire. With the winter vacation rentals near Boston, you might never want to return from your winter getaway!
