Description

The space

This yellow 1922 Arts and Crafts cottage is a great space for a family (or multiple families). It is walking distance to many parks (as well as the starting locations for the IronMan and EagleMan). Also, it is a 10 minute walk to the many restaurants, breweries, museums & all the shopping Cambridge offers! WaWa, Walmart and the Hyatt are a 10 minute drive away. Emily's Produce is a 15 minute drive (and a MUST for kids & parents alike). Have a baby with you? No problem! We have a pack n play, jumper and baby swing. In the backyard there is a tire swing and in the front yard a lovely porch swing to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. There are also several board games, iPhone chargers and books for a fun evening in (also an Apple TV with Netflix and HBO Go). We have a folding tables, chairs, a grill and several crab knives/hammers for the best kind of Maryland dinner. And before you leave, don't forget to take a #chopTanked coozie with you!

Sleeping Arrangements: On the first floor there are two bedrooms each with queen beds and a Jack&Jill bathroom. On the second floor there are two adjoining bedrooms with two full beds, 1 single bed, and one set of bunk beds. There is also a single bathroom with a toilet, sink and tub (no shower). Also, please note the ceiling in the bathroom are low.

We recently bought this house and are in the process of renovating. We have recently completed the first floor and have plans to do the second floor soon. Thanks!

The guests will have full access to the house (with the exception of one locked closet)! Feel free to use any of the items in the cabinets, pantry or refrigerator. Also, beach chairs and coolers are available for use. There is a washer and a dryer, as well as an outdoor line to hang clothes and wet towels.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I will be available if guests need us. We also have a handy man, plumber, electrician and neighbor on call if needed for any emergency!

The neighbourhood

There are so many great places within a 5-15 minute walk, as well as some great places within a 10-15 minute drive! Some of our favorites: The Cambridge Farmers Market, Emily's Produce, Stoked, RAR Brewery, etc...

Other things to note

Please note: the upstairs bathroom is on the smaller side and only has a tub (no shower) and low ceilings!

We just love Meghan's Cambridge cottage! This is our second time renting and we had a blast. We are within walking distance to downtown so we can easily get to a restaurant or bar. We will for sure be back for a third visit soon. Thank you so much!

Meghan was an amazing host. She was always available. She addressed & responded immediately to our questions. They have done a great job renovating the house with beautiful touches, making it cozy & comfortable. We were down for Ironman Maryland. The location is perfect location for this race as well as Eagleman. It's also a convenient short walk to town. We highly recommend staying here.
