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.

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!
Would stay here again,quiet neighborhood.
Parking is a plus...12 minute walk to the T.
Stores and shops within walking distance.
The location was excellent for our needs, walking to MIT and surrounding restaurants. There was excellent off street parking and the unit was spacious. I found the unit in need of some serious cleaning. The bed was comfortable however the sofa and chairs were not. Some of the kitchen dishes need to be replaced. Previous visitors had left basics, like sugar, which was nice.
So sorry for the cleanliness. We checked and found some places needed cleaning but most was find. However, it is unexceptionable to us. We have a new maid.
Good location - nice home on a pretty street
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.
We are glad that moving your son into school went so smoothly. Please contact us when you return to Boston and we will do your best to accommodate you and your family. You were wonderful guests and we would be happy to rent to you again.
Great location warm awesome host
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.
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay Robert and we hope that you contact us again should you return to the Boston area.
Cozy Comfort in Cambridge
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!
