Our hotel, the Sheraton Four Points in Wakefield, Massachusetts, offers us lots of space in an area of our own, and a great location. It's close to Boston to allow for more exploration and discovery, with hiking trails right nearby and a full health club with tennis courts, sauna, fitness equipment and an Olympic-sized pool.

We'll all enjoy complimentary Internet access in all the guest rooms. There's a beautiful lobby to hang out in. The restaurant offers good food and friendly service, and there are many other dining options nearby, as well as a Trader Joe's!

Adjacent to the hotel is the new Market Street outdoor plaza, with shopping and restaurants. Enjoy everything from a quick burrito, sushi. a yummy J.P. Licks Sundae, to a steak at the plaza's many restaurants. Then stock up at the gorgeous new Whole Foods store, offering fresh produce grown right on its roof!

If you've been looking forward to visiting Boston come early and stay late. The room rates are great for Boston and the hotel is very convenient. Also, if you want to visit Salem and Boston's North Shore the hotel is a very short drive away.

The Sheraton Colonial has a few suites available, some with kitchenettes, in addition to regular rooms. Please book as early as possible to ensure that you get a room! We've run out in previous years.  Call (781) 245-9300 and ask for the Northeast Unschooling Conference rate.
Standard rooms are $125 per night, and Junior Suites are $149. If you want to make a Boston vacation of it, you can reserve nights for several days before and several days after the conference at the same rates, a great rate for Greater Boston.

If you have any problems with reservations at all, please call the hotel directly at (781) 245-9300.
