Mitt Romney’s Former Belmont, Massachusetts, Home is for Rent on Airbnb

Wickedlocal.com featured a unique rental home listed by Senné associate Beth O’Brien that used to belong to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Keep reading for more on this Belmont property.

The former Belmont home of 2012 presidential candidate and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney can be yours temporarily for $2,200 a night, $325 per hour, or $25,000 a month. The owner, who purchased the home for $3.5 million from Romney in April 2009 according to MassLandRecords.com, has opted to rent it rather than sell it.

The six-bedroom, six-bathroom, 7,600-square-foot home sits on more than two acres of land at 171 Marsh St. and has an in-ground pool and tennis courts. It was the most expensive home sold in Belmont’s history until 2017 when a home at 5 Sumner Lane sold for $3.75 million. Currently, the highest price paid for a single-family home in Belmont is 9 Sumner Lane, which sold for $6.45 million in February 2019.

Romney lived in the house with his wife, Ann, and their four sons for 20 years. He purchased it in October 1989 for $1.25 million. He later moved to Utah, where he has served as a U.S. senator since 2019.

Beth O’Brien, of Senné, the agent listing the home for rent since January 2022, said it has been rented by businesses for corporate retreats, and by families and friends for reunions, celebrations and holiday gatherings. It’s also been used for the filming of a commercial and an interview. O’Brien is listing the home on the Multiple Listing Service, Peer and Airbnb. The listing describes it as “a quintessential New England manor house.”
