About this listing
Enjoy our renovated Victorian, on historic Prospect Hill. Cook in a modern kitchen while kids play in the playroom. Walk to trendy Union Square, climb the monument for incredible views, hit the playgrounds or easily explore all of greater Boston! Harvard, MIT and Tufts are all less than 15 minutes away.
Our home is airy and clean, equipped with central air conditioning for a comfortable summer stay! We just put in a brand new kitchen, half bath and playroom. You can easily fit 6 or more in our three large bedrooms. Master has a King, a Queen and a Full bed are in the other rooms. Also available are a premium Queen-sized air mattress and a portable crib.
We do have dogs, and though they will be gone, it might not be suitable for a highly allergic person.
The Prospect Hill neighborhood is an amazing, quiet couple of blocks situated just above Union Square. It's crowning feature is the grassy park and monument at the end of our street, which marks the first raising of the American flag! Climb the stairs and you can see all of Cambridge, and across the river, straight to Fenway! Picnic on the green, or visit the two neighborhood playgrounds.
Walk down the hill to hip Union Square and eat and drink at the many wonderful restaurants. Don't forget to check out the Farmers' Market on Saturdays, or the incredible Brazilian and Korean supermarkets. Also, you won't want to miss Capone's Italian Specialty store and Union Square Donut's ridiculous artisanal donuts.
We have a driveway with space for one car. Street parking is ample, but requires the use of a visitors pass (provided).
From Union Square, you can catch a bus to just about anywhere. Easily access Harvard Square, Porter Square and Central Square.
Davis Square can be reached by a bus at the top of Prospect Hill.
Also, you may want to investigate HubWay, the local bike sharing operation. Ports are located all over the city, cheap and easy to use.
Interaction with guests
We want you to feel at home, and interaction with us will be limited. We will be out of town but available in case of emergency during your stay.
Other things to note
Need a place to make your holiday dinner? Our new double oven and 5-burner stove will make your Holiday meals a breeze. Enjoy it with your friends around our large dining table, which seats ten!
We expect that guests will responsibly enjoy the comforts of our home, including refraining from smoking indoors. Also, due to the fact that we share our yard with our neighbors (and their two large dogs), use of the yard is not available at this time.
