The room is the top floor of wonderful 115-year old carriage house in Mid-Cambridge, half way between Harvard University and MIT. We are equidistant from three major squares in Cambridge – Harvard, Central and Inman Squares. Ten minutes walk to the Red Line, Boston’s subway system connecting to Boston; local bus service is at either end of our street.
We offer a gracious, 500 square foot, third floor bedroom loft suite with a full bathroom. It is open to the floors below via a stair. We provide sheets and towels for our guests’ use. We have a pleasant ground floor living/dining/kitchen area and exterior patio that can be lightly used by our guests. We have internet access. We also have a beautiful, friendly cat, Watson; he is loveable and may visit your room. We do not allow smoking in the house.
Wir wurden von dem Ehepaar sehr freundlich empfangen und aufgenommen. Die Beschreibung des Zimmers war zutreffend. Es war sehr sauber und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus liegt fußläufig zur Harvard-Uni. Ist also ein sehr guter Standort, wenn man sich die Unis anschauen möchte. Auch das MIT ist nur 2 U-Bahn-Stationen entfernt. Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis ist für Bostoner Verhältnisse sehr gut. Unser Gastgeber gab uns eine umfassende Einführung zum Wohnbereich wie auch zu Cambridge selbst (Subway-Stationen, Cafes zum Frühstücken). Man konnte den beiden anmerken, dass sie daran interessiert waren, mehr über die Personen zu erfahren, die sich bei Ihnen einmieten und Freude daran haben, Gastgeber zu sein. Uns wurde zudem großes Vertrauen entgegengebracht, da die beiden während zwei Tagen unseres Aufenthalts selber gar nicht zu Hause waren.
Would highly recommend staying with Chuck! Everything was as described in his listing and met my needs perfectly. The bed was really comfortable and the en suite bathroom was really convenient. There's also a little fridge to store any leftovers you've accumulated throughout the day. Chuck was really accommodating (offered me tea or coffee every morning, or an umbrella if it was raining) but otherwise gave me lots of privacy, which was greatly appreciated after a long day. Would stay here again!
Felt welcomed. Listing was more or less accurate, except for the fact that the bedroom is in an open loft via a spiral staircase, without a door. We felt somewhat exposed by not being able to shut ourselves in with a door. Location was good.
The Redmons are very welcoming. The location is very convenient to both Harvard and MIT. Quietly located centrally in Cambridge with many restaurants nearby. The room is a loft on the third floor of a three floor home. It is a large comfortable loft style room with excellent windows and nice views. If you desire very private accommodations, this may not be the right fit. If you are an orderly person comfortable with some interaction with your hosts, this is a very good option.
I stayed here for a week and I loved it very much! It was a very unique, beautiful house and Chuck and Pat were great people. They were very welcoming and warm-hearted. I liked that I had my own bathroom, refrigerator, desk, and a reading chair in my space. I stayed long enough, I could meet Watson, the lovely cautious cat. Even if you are not a cat person, I think you will enjoy meeting him. I would definitely stay here again!
Staying here was a great experience. The room was nice, Charles and his wife were friendly and helpful, and the neighborhood is beautiful. This was my first experience using Airbnb and I could be happier with the experience.
