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.
Charles & Pat were wonderful hosts, and treated us as if we'd been friends for a long time. We felt very much at home, in such a lovely neighbourhood, so close to everything we wished to see.
Thanks for your hospitality.

Chuck und Pat waren tolle Gastgeber - sehr freundlich, interessiert und hilfsbereit. Im Zimmer und Bad ist für alles gesorgt, was man braucht (Handtücher, Bettwäsche, Geschirr, kleiner Kühlschrank, ...) und alles war sehr sauber.
Die Lage ist gut, schöne Nachbarschaft, Harvard Campus und mehrere Shops und Restaurants sind innerhalb von maximal 15 Gehminuten zu erreichen. Nach Downtown muss man ca. 25-30 Minuten einplanen, zu Fuß und mit der U-Bahn.
Alles in allem kann man die Unterkunft nur weiterempfehlen.
I don't have much to add that hasn't already been said by other guests. Chuck and Pat truly are wonderfully gracious hosts and they have a very lovely home. The room is spacious, clean and very comfortable. It is even equipped with a small fridge. It is true that the room is open to the floor below, but the owners are quiet and respectful. The house is very close to Harvard university, but the neighborhood is calm and beautiful. There are even Hubway bicycles nearby. Chuck was very helpful in giving tips on places to eat and how to get around. I would highly recommend this place!
Friendly welcoming. We had a great time at Chuck's place. Third floor only for guests.
La casa de Charles y su mujer es absolutamente preciosa, se encuentra en una zona tranquila pero a 10 minutos del centro de Cambridge y de la parada de metro para ir a Boston. Es una gran opción para estar tranquilo y a la vez a un paso de todo. Charles y su mujer hicieron todo lo posible para hacernos sentir como en casa, no olvidaremos la cena en la terraza con Charles, muy agradable. La habitación es enorme porque es la buhardilla de la casa. Recomiendo este airbnb 100%
Chuck é stato davvero (website hidden) ha aiutato con le guide e consigli utili dei posti da visitare. É stato molto discreto ma allo stesso tempo presente quando ci serviva aiuto. Pensate che ci ha ifferto una bottiglia di Prosecco facendocela trovare in camera la sera al nostro ritorno. Alla nostra partenza ci ha accompagnato alla stazione metro si Massacchussets Avenue con la sua auto in quanto pioveva. L'appartamento si trova ad un quarto d'ora dalla fermata metro della linea rossa sulla Massacchussets Avenue e piu o meno lo stesso tempo dalla fermata sempre della linea rossa di Harvard University. Molto facile il collegamento con l'aeroporto. Stanza pulita ed ordinata, é una mansarda con bagno privato. Insomma ci ritornerei volentieri se dovessi ripassare per Boston. Ciao Chuck. Thank you!!!
We felt welcome from the first contact on. The neighborhood seemed like the perfect New England, Cambridge neighborhood: springtime green and lush and beautifully maintained. The house was perfectly situated and we were able to easily walk everywhere we wanted to go. Our hosts provided advice, maps, and even umbrellas. We particularly enjoyed visiting with the Redmon's around the kitchen table on Monday morning. They are a fascinating couple and we enjoyed hearing about the house, their family and interests.
