Stay in our lovely first floor apartment when you attend area graduations, or for that spring or summer visit to area colleges and universities, or to just experience historical and unique Boston-Cambridge with your family! The apartment is also perfect for visiting faculty or graduate students with families interested in a longer-term rental. We also host business travelers and people who are making plans to relocate to the Boston area. This is a tastefully furnished two-bedroom, with a dining room, living room, study, one full bathroom, walk-in closet, and a newly-renovated eat-in kitchen. There is one queen-size bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the other bedroom, so it sleeps four. The kitchen is fully equipped; there is a large flat screen TV; cable and Wifi, and a washer and ...Stay in our lovely first floor apartment when you attend area graduations, or for that spring or summer visit to area colleges and universities, or to just experience historical and unique Boston-Cambridge with your family!

The kitchen is fully equipped; there is a large flat screen TV; cable and Wifi, and a washer and dryer in the basement. Our photos say it all…this is a cozy (but roomy), comfortable place to stay while you are in the Boston-Cambridge-Somerville area. Whether it is for business, pleasure, visiting the area colleges and universities or medical centers, you will feel at home on our quiet street just steps from busy Massachusetts Avenue. You have the whole apartment for yourselves, with your own front and back entrances. Sit out on the back porch and yard and enjoy the garden!. My husband and I live upstairs on the second and third floors. If you have a car, you can use our free visitor permit and park right on our street for short-term stays. Ask me about parking for longer term stays. Logan Airport and South Station are easily accessible by public transportation (via Red Line subway). You can rent a car in nearby Harvard Square. Zip cars are parked right in the neighborhood. Hubway rental bikes are at the end of the street (see photo). We are just steps from the Minuteman Bike Trail. More

Could not have been greeted more hospitably. Even enjoyed off street parking, after a long drive to Mass. The driveway is lined with an array of colorful flowers. Maryann beckoned us toward the garage. Inside, hardwood floors, spacious bedrooms, kitchen with table, dining room, living...More

About the neighbourhood
This is a safe neighborhood with a lot of open space. Besides our yard, which is considered large by city standards, there is a neighborhood school with public playing fields, two playgrounds, and public tennis courts at the end of the street on Rindge Avenue. Right around the corner, on Sherman Street, there is a giant public park - Danehy Park - with playgrounds and playing fields, trails for walking and jogging, and in the winter, a giant hill for sledding. Pemberton Farms and Market is diagonally across from Hollis Street on Massachusetts Avenue. This is a wonderful market with farm-fresh produce and specialty foods, a deli, bakery, wine and beer, and excellent meat and fish.
