The space

Our lovely and spacious Victorian home is located on a quiet one way street between Harvard and Inman Squares. A twelve minute walk (0.8miles) will bring you to historic Harvard Square where the subway can transport you to downtown Boston in less than 10 minutes.

We have a very cozy and comfortable room with a full size bed, TV, closet and bureau with it’s own AC and heating controls. You have your own private full bathroom (never shared) across the hall and full shared use of our beautiful, well stocked custom kitchen. In addition there is a second room you may use for an office work space or to store luggage. A simple breakfast will be provided and space in the refrigerator will be made available for you.
We are on the second floor of this 2 family home so there are stairs to negotiate.

If you are coming to Boston to visit colleges, see our additional listing of 2 Cozy Rooms near Harvard Square for additional sleeping space. We only rent to one guest/couple or group at a time so the extra room will not be available to other guests during your visit if you are not renting it.

Other Amenities:
Parking in our driveway for $10/day(cash)
Cable TV
Free High Speed Wifi
Central AC
Clean Towels and Linens
Toiletries (perfect for carry-on travelers)!
Hair Dryer
Iron and Ironing Board

Vibrant Inman Square is a 5 minute walk with a large selection of fabulous restaurants. I’m a foodie so ask me for recommendations! Off street parking is available with a permit. A perfect location for visiting the many colleges in the area including Harvard, MIT, BU, BC, Tufts and Lesley College. High Tech Kendall Square is also nearby for business travelers and conference attendees.
Business travelers please feel free to inquire about the possibility of 1 night stays during the week.

PLEASE NOTE that our monthly rental rate does not include a $50 per week cleaning fee. The monthly rent is based on 28 nights (4 x 7 nights). Breakfast is not provided (other than coffee and tea) for monthly guests as you will have full use of our kitchen for food storage and cooking.

ALSO please note that the weekly rate does not apply to peak time periods. One night stays may be considered in special circumstances.

I usually do not book more than 6 months out but if you have a special event that you want to reserve outside of that window, send me a message.

We are working most days but when around would love to share our extensive knowledge of the Boston area to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Looking forward to meeting you!
