This comfortable newly renovated first floor apartment is located in Inman Square, between Harvard and MIT. It’s a short walk to shops, live music, and some of the best restaurants in the Boston area. Harvard and Central Square subway are each a 10-15-minute walk away, and MIT is a 15-minute walk. Just two subway stops away from the heart of Boston.

The bathroom has a tub/shower and updated tile. Gleaming hardwood floors throughout and lovely neutral modern décor; a collection of framed color and black and white photographs decorate the walls. The atmosphere is airy, clean and welcoming. All linens and kitchen items provided. Rents monthly in the winter.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 4 night in the heart of Cambridge, just a sort ride to downtown off the red line and a quick walk to Harvard Square. The place was spacious and easy to find. If I have any suggestion it would be to install ceiling fans in the front room and the kitchens to help circulate air, otherwise a first rate experience.

For the cost and conditions, this condo was perfect for two couples. It was clean and comfortable, in a good neighborhood, an affordable cab ride to downtown Boston and walkable to Harvard, MIT and several good restaurants and stores. My only complaint is that the people staying in the other rental above walked around a lot very loudly and were walking back and forth all morning making sleep difficult. I would still recommend staying here as the noise depends on the renters. This condo made staying in the Boston area affordable while meeting quality expectations and I would stay here again.

Great little apartment in Cambridge

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with two of my colleagues at this little apartment in Cambridge for 3 days while we participated in a workshop at Harvard. We found the accommodations to be perfect. Clean and tidy with everything we needed. It was a perfect place to relax after day of work. We enjoyed walking to and from Harvard. It took about half an hour, and on the way home in the evening we always found somewhere great to stop for drinks and a meal. All 3 of us felt that we would definitely stay here again next time we come to Cambridge.

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and grandson came to Cambridge for our daughters graduation at Harvard. This apartment was in a great location for the graduation ceremonies, but far enough away to be very peaceful and quiet at night. We were very close to grocery stores and restaurants also. Would highly recommend this apartment!

Nice apartment, but some room for improvement

  • 4 of 5



+Big enough for 2 couples to share

+Well equipped

+Perfectly located

+Booking via Bed and Breakfast Associates Bay Colony went quick and smooth; the contact people there, were super friendly and helpful and very motivated (great job)


-Issues with the parking space: no clarity about how to access the garage (confusion about access hours); garage key was not available) - however problem was solved quickly with a few phone calls (this apartment was rented out for the first time so the owner forgot to mention the garage key to Bed and Breakfast Associates Bay Colony)


Good price for quality! Without the parking issue, I would have rated the place with 5 stars. If you arrive with your car, book a parking space as street parking in Cambridge is horrible.

Perfect!!! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

My Girlfriend and I (both in our early 30s) were very satisfied with this condo. It is very cute and cozy and beats a hotel by far! It is literally 2 blocks from great restaurants/bars etc

Jim was very accommodating and allowed an early check-in since my flight arrived so early.

Highly Recommend.
