About the property

Studio Apartment, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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. In the friendly neighborhood of Inman Square, on beautiful Maple Avenue with its large trees and homes, you are near nationally-recognized restaurants, an easy 12-minute walk from Central Square and less than a 15-minute walk from Harvard Square. NOTE: You will hear the the steps of children above.

Rents monthly in the winter.

Peaceful and Elegant

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every aspect of our Murhouse stay. Nicely appointed and comfortable, an easy walk to transportation, great local restaurants and pubs. We found it a great location to take in the charm of Cambridge, the history of the the Freedom Trail, and even a short bus ride to Fenway park to take in a Red Sox game.

Highly recommended!

Great location and neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

I found the location to be very convenient for walking to Harvard and to the nearby restaurants in Cambridge. The unit was well equipped although I did not use the kitchen for anything other than storing a couple of bottles of water in the refrigerator. I would give it five stars if it were not for the noise inside the building from other renters. Is a very nice home but not insulated in a sound proofing kind of way. The upstairs neighbors made a lot of noise not only in their apartment but in the very early morning in the hallway and I found that to be very disruptive. But of course this is why I travel with earplugs.

The host of the property is very accommodating and concerned with your comfort. I do recommend this location but would just caution you to not expect the same kind of quiet you would get if it were not a multi apartment unit.

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time in Boston and this accommodation was lovely and clean. It had everything we needed. It was close to public transit which we used the whole time we were there.

The only criticism I would have was the furniture was not very comfortable. Bed was fine but couches and chairs were not. Murray was great. A really friendly guy. We would definitely stay here again!
