Stay in our lovely first floor apartment when you attend area graduations, or for that spring or summer visit to area colleges and universities, or to just experience historical and unique Boston-Cambridge with your family! The apartment is also perfect for visiting faculty or graduate students with families interested in a longer-term rental. We also host business travelers and people who are making plans to relocate to the Boston area.

This is a tastefully furnished two-bedroom, with a dining room, living room, study, one full bathroom, walk-in closet, and a newly-renovated eat-in kitchen. There is one queen-size bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the other bedroom, so it sleeps four.

Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Could not have been greeted more hospitably. Even enjoyed off street parking, after a long drive to Mass.

The driveway is lined with an array of colorful flowers. Maryann beckoned us toward the garage. Inside, hardwood floors, spacious bedrooms, kitchen with table, dining room, living room AND a separate study area. An inviting and clean and comfortable
home away from home.

Even the requisites for today's families traveling -- Washer and drier and Internet.

And, no more than a 10-minute walk to the 'Red-line' metro train. 5-minutes to a wonderful 'fresh market', even.

Thank you, Maryann

Our stay could not have been nicer. The home was lovely and within walking distance to restaurants and the Harvard campus. Mary Ann was delightful and flexible. Highly recommended !

About the neighbourhood
This is a safe neighborhood with a lot of open space. Besides our yard, which is considered large by city standards, there is a neighborhood school with public playing fields, two playgrounds, and public tennis courts at the end of the street on Rindge Avenue. Right around the corner, on Sherman Street, there is a giant public park - Danehy Park - with playgrounds and playing fields, trails for walking and jogging, and in the winter, a giant hill for sledding.

Pemberton Farms and Market is diagonally across from Hollis Street on Massachusetts Avenue. This is a wonderful market with farm-fresh produce and specialty foods, a deli, bakery, wine and beer, and excellent meat and fish. Have one of their delicious sandwiches and sip coffee sitting with the flowers at a table in their greenhous...
