This was my family's old home and I live in it occasionally during the year. I love this area and particularly like being close to the river, Harvard Square and the metro system, as well as easy access to the suburbs.

We truly enjoyed our stay at this property. Everything was very clean and our family of four had plenty of room. The charm of the house was perfect as well.
We cook in almost every breakfast and dinner (and prep lunches to go), and the kitchen was very well apportioned. We were not missing anything that was expected and there was probably more than we needed (we did miss not having a few extra days to spend in town, though).
The house is in a great location in Cambridge. We often took the bus (the stop was across the street and down half a block...close) a quick 3 stops over to the subway, and that would get us where we needed to go in the city. We did have a rental car as well, and having a driveway to park was great (street parking requires a residential permit).
Even the wi-fi was great. For those that are interested in the details, in the downstairs living room, Speedtest reported 179 Mbps down and 6 Mbps up. In the master bedroom (upstairs opposite side of the house from the living room), Speedtest reported 55 Mbps down and 6 Mbps up.
The owner was extremely responsive to our questions before and during our trip and was very helpful throughout. We had a great trip overall and this house certainly contributed to our great vacation experience. We would definitely stay here again!
A Lovely Stay in Cambridge Town
I’ve stayed in many rentals of this type, and my family & I stayed in this one for nearly a week. This property delivered all of the amenities of home. It was perfectly well-equipped, surprisingly spacious, and very clean. However, the biggest perks seemed to be that it is both across the street from a convenient bus stop and a short, pleasant walk away from Harvard square. Communication with the owner was also exceedingly clear and easy, and I especially appreciated the extra tips, notes, and ‘welcome snacks’ that were left for us. Thank you for a lovely stay, Sarah!
House was clean and comfortable. Very close to Harvard Square, Longfellow house and the Charles River. Parking off the street was great-- left the car and walked most places or took Uber.
Easy check in. Sarah was great.
Lovely, comfortable, convenient home
We stayed for MIT graduation and a wedding. The house was a great place to relax between festivities. Simple walk to Harvard Square (make sure to stop at Flour for pastries). The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. Off street parking was also a definite plus.
Great house! Open concept great sun!
Shared house for a Harvard Kennedy School reunion. Comfortable sleeping, good for entertaining and short walk to campus. Sarah was terrific to rent from. Lovely little patio off the kitchen.
Beautiful home. Great location. Owner was very friendly and responsive.
We would definitely stay here again.
