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.
Rents monthly in the winter.

This was our first experience with VRBO and everything went very smoothly. We were moving our son into school with a full car so the onsite parking was appreciated! The apartment is a convenient walk to both Central and Harvard Square T stops. We would like to use this apartment again but it appears to be quite popular. A great value and good alternative to a hotel stay.
This was our first ever experience with VRBO. What a great time we had. The apartment was exactly as described and we had a few interactions with the owner who was warm and hospitable. The location is walking distance to Harvard Square and groceries and quaint restaurants. A lovely tree and garden lined street. It felt like home. There is the pitter patter of little feet upstairs but heck it's a multi unit dwelling and that's part of life that makes it real.
My husband & I spent 3 nights in Muirhouse Suite. We found it to be clean and quite spacious for our stay. The location couldn't have been better. We walked to Inman Square each morning for a great breakfast at S& S Deli which has been in its location for 91 years! Thank you Murray. It was nice to meet you. Loved the flower planters on the deck!
This rental worked out well for our family of four. The location is very convenient to public transportation and there are grocery and dining options nearby. The kitchen is decently equipped, but if I had one comment, it could use a few more sets of silverware so that everything didn't have to be washed after each meal. Our children (12, 15) used the pullout sofa bed and said it was comfortable. You can hear foot traffic from the upstairs apartment in case that is a deal breaker for you. The apartment was very clean. We were in town for the Boston Marathon and it worked very well for us. We had a car, and the parking spot was essential! In town we used the T, but when driving out of town, it had convenient highway access.
Me and a friend stayed here for the Boston Marathon last year. The bed was very comfortable and the place was clean. We really enjoyed walking around and exploring Cambridge. Public transportation wasn't too far. I would stay here again next time I visit Cambridge.
The online pictures are an accurate picture of the charm, size and beauty of the studio. The location could not be better and off street parking. The host is excellent. Our only quibble with the rental was that "we might hear the patter of little feet" as the unit above the B&B housed a family. It was more frequently like the galloping herd, starting early and sometimes going late, mostly quiet during the day. The kitchen could have been better appointed. Not enough plates, silverware , good knives, but no knife sharpener that we could find. But we are cooks and like to entertain at home. The kitchen and its lacks sometimes made that difficult. All that being said, we would gladly stay there again.
