A most elegant condominium awaits you on the first floor of this lovely 1860 Victorian home close to Harvard Square. The 30' living/bedroom has restored period moldings, hardwood floors, large windows, a large sisal woven area rug, and a decorative fireplace. The front of the room serves as a sitting area, with a sleep sofa, while the rear has a handsome 19th Century four-poster queen-sized bed. (The bed is slightly shorter than a standard queen.) There is a gleaming white tiled bath, a full separate kitchen, a pleasant deck off the kitchen with full morning sun and a lovely garden on the side of the house. As one of the finest Cambridge vacation rentals, this unit includes cable television, a stereo system with CD and cassette player, high speed Internet, a landline telephone with an answering machine and free laundry in the basement.

Enjoyed Ourselves!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in Cambridge at Murhouse Suite. Murray picked us up at the airport and gave us a mini-tour of Boston on the way to the B&B. He was tremendously hospitable. We loved the neighborhood and the easy access to Harvard and Boston via the T. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the accomodations - great kitchen, spacious living room/sitting area and good sized bath. I found the bed to be short (I'm 6'3") but we were informed in advance and chose to book here anyways. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

A charming suite with great location

  • 5 of 5
My son and I stayed two weeks at Murhouse. The suite is very well taken care of and has a feeling of being home. As I had to commute between Harvard Square and downtown Boston, this location worked great for us. On top, Murray was super attentive! I would stay here again, no doubt about it. Two Thumbs Up!

Beautiful Area

  • 3 of 5
The apt worked well for our first time visiting the area. It was walking distance to many locations and public transportation. The neighborhood was lovely as well.

We did not spend a lot of time at the apt, but we thought there were a couple things that could be improved on for a better stay.

1. Cable package (like other reviews) was not the best.
2. The people upstairs are very noisy at night. You heard ever step and conversations. We had to turn on the radio for some background noise trying to go to sleep.
3. Cleaning. The bathroom has someone elses hair all over the place and there were tons of dust everywhere else.
4. Lighting. At night, the lamps and lights are not very bright. We had every light and lamp turned on and it was not enough for some things.
5. Deck Privacy - There was not a curtain in the neighorbors room off the deck. We felt uncomfortable walking/ sitting out there. There were many times we saw him sleeping right by the window or in the room.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear this guest and her family found the neighborhood pleasant. To our chagrin we did notice our new maid to be not quite as detailed as needed and have since hired a new maid who is more thorough. The neighbors above are new and are conscious of the unit below. We are surprised to read of any noise they may have made and will discuss this with them.

Beautiful, Comfortable & Convenient

Beautiful, Comfortable & Convenient

The unit covers 1/2 of the first floor of a beautiful old house in Cambridge, on a quiet private street among many other beautiful old houses. The interior was more spacious than I expected --
* a very large livingroom with lots of chairs and a TV in half of it, and a really nice antique 4 poster bed in the other house
* a full size and fully equipped kitchen.
* a large modern bathroom, with gleaming fixtures and tile work.
* lots of large windows
* clean and mostly well maintained.

There is a large parking lot in the back yard, and that was great because on-street parking would have been a problem.

Lots of good restaurants and jazz clubs in the area.

A couple of very minor problems:
1) it wasn't ready when we got there - apparently due to some confusion about which guest was checking in. This was resolved promptly.
2) there were a lot of burned out light bulbs and I would have appreciated better lighting in the unit.
3) the bathtub is very large, which is great for a large person like myself, but there was no stopper in sight, so I couldn't enjoy the long soak that I was planning on.
4) the cable TV package is somewhat limited... fine for watching the news but if you want to curl up and watch an old movie with your sweetie, you don't have many choices.

Overall I was quite pleased and my wife was too. I would definitely come back on a future trip to the Boston area. Definitely was worth 5 stars, in spite of a few minor issues.

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved this apartment. It is a very large studio with tasteful furnishings. We like to cook, and we found the kitchen to be fully equipped and well-stocked with basic cooking ingredients. The location is unbeatable-about halfway between M.I.T. and Harvard and near many commercial establishments. The apartment is on a quiet residential street. We felt safe when walking at night in the neighborhood. The apartment is part of a large house; we had no issues with noise from other units. We would definitely stay here again!

Excellent Location and Accommodations

  • 5 of 5
This is a great find - on site parking, a large living room/bed area, separate bathroom, and large kitchen, with all the necessary appliances. Owner lives next door but is completely unobtrusive. About a 10 minute walk to Central Square ( T stop for Red Line) , 7 minutes to Whole Foods and 15 minute walk to Harvard Square. Downsides are minor - a bit dark overall, foot noise from above and really crappy cable; oitherwise, we greatly enjoyed our week at this locaiton and would return if in Cambridge/Boston again.
