Lovely bedroom in my home on quiet residential street, cozy, private, lots of natural light. Private full bath. Use of fully-equipped kitchen, dining room and living room. Shops and restaurants nearby. 5 to 10-minute walk to Porter Square T Stop, 20-minute walk to Harvard Square.

The space

The room is quiet and peaceful. It's in the back of the house with a nice view of back yards and trees. There is a back porch off your room, a nice place to sit during good weather.

Guest access

You have your own bedroom and bathroom. There is a nice back porch off your room.

You may use the kitchen for cooking, but please no strong smells (like garlic, onion, cabbage), and the dining area.

I have Amazon Prime, and a DVD player and some DVDs.

I provide coffee and tea.

If you are here for more than a week, I can do one load of laundry no more than once a week, if need be. There are also laundromats nearby.

Other things to note

I provide coffee and tea.

My cat will not go in your room or bathroom. I have had a few guests who booked the room but were allergic to cats. If you missed that I have a cat, and are allergic to cats, let me know. I may be willing to keep him on a different floor, depending on the length of stay.

Our room was lovely and the bed was super comfortable. The private bath was beautiful as well. It was easy communicating with Amy before our trip and she was able to greet us upon our arrival. There is a private entrance and a wonderful outside deck where we enjoyed an evening cocktail during each night of our stay. The neighborhood is delightful and we enjoyed walking and biking to wonderful restaurants and bars. We would love to return to Amy's home on future visits to Boston!

Amy's house is in a very quiet neighbourhood a few minutes away from the park at Walden St. and Raymond. It's a pleasant 12 min. walk along tree-lined streets and vintage homes to Porter Square. The separate stairway entrance, comfortable bed, the original art, extensive library, beautiful oriental rugs and Amy's gracious helpfulness make for a great stay. Thanks Amy - we'll be back!

You can park right in front with a permit that Amy will give you. You have a private entrance by a winding metal staircase and a little balcony where you can relax enjoy the air. The space where the bed is is a little tight but there's room at the foot with a table and good wifi connection so it isn't a problem. Though the bath is a few steps away, it's not far and is very nice and private. Amy is very nice and helpful.

We had a great stay at Amy's. She was friendly and helpful, but also gave us plenty of privacy. The location was perfect for exploring Cambridge and the parking pass was very helpful.

Amy is great host with a beautiful home and a generous demeanour. As another reviewer said, the photos cannot do the house's grandeur full justice. It is spacious and full of lovely furniture and paintings. Amy provided lots of useful local information and was respectful and gracious and a pleasure to visit!

Amy is a kind host. Her house is close to Cambridge's downtown, which has some great Asian and Italian restaurants. However, I still suggest people who are sensitive to smoke to choose here.
