Location, location, location. My place is minutes from the Alewife T, Mass. Ave., the Minuteman Bikeway, and more. Leave car at home! Walk to the Capitol Theater and enjoy a tasty treat from Quebrada Bakery. Stroll down Mass. Ave. to dine and shop. Harvard Sq., Davis Sq. and the rest of Boston are just a T ride away! Gut renovated in 2016. It's got ambiance, style and convenience. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families, and big groups.

The space

The space is a quiet bedroom on the second floor near a bathroom. There is one full-size bed and a sofa bed.

Katherine is a very welcoming host and her home is very clean and updated. The location is perfect for venturing into Boston. It is a 10-minute walk to the Alewife T station which takes you right downtown. I would definitely stay at her home again.

Katherine's home was lovely; everything was neat, clean, and well taken care of. Our room was ready when we arrived. We were given easy access in/ out of the house, the Wi-Fi worked great, and Katherine went out her way to make sure we were comfortable. Everyone was very welcoming and had great suggestions for things to do and places to visit. The house was walking distance from the train and only a short commute to downtown Boston and the surrounding area. We would recommend this place for anyone looking for gracious hosts, lovely accommodations, and a good time!

Katherine was a very conscientious and flexible host, preemptively answering any questions that would arise- from recommendations of where to eat to handling parking arrangements- so that our stay was obstacle free. Her house is gorgeous, newly renovated and a designer's dream. We loved the immaculate bathroom and overall comfort that the room provided. We even got to try out memory foam pillows for the first time! Thanks for a great stay!

I absolutely loved this place. It was even better than I expected: Katherine made us feel very comfortable and did what she could to give us access to the house. It's a modern, large space very close to the red line.

I definitely recommend Katherine's place for anyone looking for a place to stay near Boston. The location of the place is ideal- few minutes walk from the Boston public transportation that takes you to downtown Boston. The room is very clean and nice. And most of all, Katherine is a wonderful host. She has been very helpful to us throughout our stay.

I am a mother of two boys and a part-time Zumba Instructor. Real estate has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Following in the footsteps of my father, I've developed land as well as owned and managed properties for most of my life. I appreciate the creative and collaborative process of real estate development from start to end. I also enjoy cooking and entertaining. My happiest memories growing up was when guests were in the house for a dinner party or an overnight stay. I feel that guests bring out the best in all of us, and a visit from a guest is always an occasion to look forward to.
