Come stay with us! Our second bedroom is brand new, my partner David put in the hardwood floors himself. Painted a serene blue and with windows on our courtyard, this room is an escape from the bustle of Cambridge. The room is very private as it is on the opposite side of the apartment from our bedroom (with the living room in between). Up one flight of stairs, you have a great view of our lush green courtyard!
The room has a full-sized bed with memory foam mattress pad, private entrance, plenty of space, and WiFi. You are also welcome to share our living room with a couch, dining table, refrigerator, and full kitchen in case you don't want to eat out every night. I will say we are not home most weekends and when you inquire I'll let you know if we will be away,
Feel free to borrow one of our many board games or lounge outside in our shared (but barely used) courtyard. You must share the bathroom with us, but it is clean and was completely remodeled this past fall. We put in the best shower possible, people even write about it in reviews.
Accessible by the Lechmere T (13 minute walk) or the 69 bus which loops from the Lechmere T to Harvard square conveniently pausing in front of our building. Walk to Inman Square for shops and bars (8 minutes), or down to Kendall Square (18 minutes). Also, parking is available and free. Grocery store is also only a 5 minute walk.
Check in and check out are VERY flexible and I am free to help you plan mass transit routes or fill you in on parking! Coin operated laundry in the basement - you can use my detergent.
A great, inexpensive place to stay if you are visiting MIT or Harvard (David commutes to Harvard daily). Also Boston accessible if you just don't want to stay IN the city. Not only will you have a relaxing and accessible place to stay, you'll have hosts who love to host!
It was very good place to stay near Havard.
Kat is very kind!
If you're visiting Cambridge/Boston -- particularly the Kendall Square area -- you can't do better than Kat's place. Perfect location on Cambridge Street near some of my favorite eateries (Atwood's East Side B&G) and a very easy commute to Kendall Square, Harvard Square, Beacon Hill, or Back Bay. The bed was real comfy too!
Kat is my neighbor! She hosted my parents for a long Thanksgiving visit. We were so happy to have them so close, and Kat's place is super cute. A quick walk has you anywhere you need to be in Cambridge.
Kat is also very responsive to questions and setting up the check in! We couldn't have asked for a more flexible and gracious host. Mom and dad Homstad will definitely be visiting again!
See you at Atwood's sometime, Kat!
I stayed with Kat for one night. I booked it basically at the last minute. She was super friendly and hospitable. Because of the timing of my trip and travel, we only managed to meet when I checked in and picked up the keys.
As for the room, it was exactly as presented and described. Very comfortable. The rest of her home was clean and tidy. The shared bathroom was also clean and well appointed. The 69 bus does go right past her building so getting to/from Harvard Square is a quick 10-20 minute ride.
I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend Kat to anyone looking for a clean and comfortable place in Cambridge.
Kat is a very nice host. She and David have a lovely home. They made us feel like home.
A pleasant stay! Kat was very flexible with my arrival/departure and I had no problems. They were friendly hosts and I definitely would stay again.
Very nice place to stay. Clean room and bathroom. Friendly hosts.
My stay with Kat was great! Kat is friendly, organized, responsive, approachable, and down to earth. I appreciated her flexibility with arrival and departure times very, very much--it made my travel convenient and comfortable. The neighborhood is great, tasty food is within easy walking distance, and the bus to the red line at Harvard Square makes public transit quick and easy. I would definitely stay with Kat again, and recommend that you do too!
Kat and David are great hosts and made us feel right at home during our visit to Boston. Kat provided clear directions to their home and we arrived there with no trouble. They also were very helpful and gave us good advice about where to eat and how to get around in Boston. And we sincerely enjoyed chatting with them and getting to know them better. It was also a bonus to have easy access to public transportation from their place. Staying with Kat and David was a pleasure and we would recommend them to host you during your next visit to Boston.
Our stay at Kat's place was very nice and Kat was very quick and helpful answering all our questions when we needed it. The apartment is comfortable and the location is good, moreover there is a bus stop just in front of Kat’s place that was very convenient! It is certainly a good place to stay, if you like to spend few days in Boston and I would certainly recommend it!
