The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is residential yet quite vibrant and has many services within walking distance. Two blocks in one direction is the wonderful café Sofra with homemade confections and middle eastern dishes. One block in the other direction is Shangri-La: an excellent Chinese restaurant. Two blocks away is Greg's, a neighborhood Italian eatery with full bar and early bird specials. Also within a block are a well stocked liquor store/wine shop, a middle eastern bakery, and a dry cleaners. If you want to walk five blocks to Coolidge Square there is a tasty vegetarian restaurant (Red Lentil), a great diner (Town Diner), a tiny but very good middle eastern eatery (Jasmine), and a super coffee/lunch spot (Uncommon Grounds). A supermarket (Shaws) is four blocks away. A jogging trail around Fresh Pond is six blocks away as is a very nice nine hole golf course. All of this only a ten minute bus ride from Harvard Square!

Getting Around

The 73 Bus from Harvard Square station stops right past the house (Sullivan Rd. stop). It leaves from underground in the Harvard Square subway station and is about a ten minute ride.

Other Things to Note

In the nice weather we have a wonderful rear patio surrounded by flower beds. It has chaise lounges, a large table and umbrellas and fountains and a barbecue and is a real urban oasis. It also has WIFI, and we encourage our guest to enjoy the space for work and leisure. We have a potluck dinner every WedTuesday evening and guests are welcome to join in! We also have a meditation room guests are welcome to use.
