Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a wonderful stay at Catherine's house over the past week. It is in an excellent location in Cambridge, walking distance to the MIT campus and other key spots in the area (restaurants, shops, the river for those of us who run). The place is clean, well equipped, quiet and importantly, the bed is super comfy. I would recommend Catherine's place for anyway looking for a short or longer stay in the Cambridge area.

  • This room is as lovely as it appears and Catherine is as gracious and considerate a host as anyone could ever hope for. So helpful and accommodating.
    The location is perfectly accessible and in walking distance to restaurants, public transportation, MIT, etc.
    I look forward to another stay in the future.

  • I had a wonderful time at Catherine's and Pat place. They made me feel at home as soon as I arrived. They are sweet, easy going, funny, relax and very respectful about their host. They are always here to help if you need something, and at the same time you really feel intimacy at their place.
    The house is super clean, very comfortable, with a lot of light. The bed is wonderful. Everything smells good in the house.
    I could do some cooking on the evenings and use the kitchen which is perfectly equipped.
    The area around the house is quiet and safe, there is a nice greek restaurant just 1 minute from the house and a galleria mall with shops and a food court just nearby (5 minutes walk). You can also find other restaurants around within a walking distance (10 minutes).
    I stayed here for professional reasons during 9 days, and at the end I was really sad to leave them !
    I highly recommend to stay at Catherine and Pat's place
