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.
Chuck and Pat are very welcoming hosts and are able to provide guests with a wealth of information about Cambridge & Boston, and with lots of great suggestions for their immediate area, tailored to your interests. The room is very spacious and comfortable, with its own private bathroom, all in a lovely house set back from a quiet one-way street in a pleasant residential area. Public transport is within easy walking distance, as are many great cafes and grocery stores, and Harvard is just a short walk away. Everything you would wish to see in Boston & Cambridge is easily accessible. Very strongly recommended!
Chuck was a great host. The house is situated in a good location close to the subway, bars and restaurants. Our host was excellent and made us feel very welcome and gave good advice. House and room were very clean and provided a good base for exploring Boston. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful stay in Boston. Chuck and Pat are welcoming and charming people. We had a very pleasant moment in a very pleasant house. Thanks a lot to you both !
Room is very comfortable. My daughter and I stayed for two nights - Chuck provided me with an air mattress (I gave my daughter the nice bet). Chuck and Pat are delightful hosts. We felt very comfortable in their home. The surrounding area is beautiful and within walking distance of Harvard.
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!
