About this listing
Private, well appointed bedroom near Harvard Sq. Just a couple blocks from Harvard Yard, Harvard Campus, and all that Harvard Square has to offer. This quiet, clean, and comfortable apartment is on a quiet neighborhood street near historic Harvard!
Our location provides visitors with an authentic experience. From our apartment, walking to Harvard Square features brick sidewalks and historic landmarks, parks, and buildings throughout our neighborhood. We are also located near the Charles River and several museums and libraries making it convenient to step our our front door and explore Cambridge and beyond.
Interaction with Guests
We are quite busy and are both pursuing graduate degrees and working.
If we are hanging out in the living room, we love to chat with our guests and get to know them better. We are also happy to provide any recommendations for dining or assist guests with getting around Boston!
We live in the heart of Harvard Square in Cambridge. Harvard Square is a historic district surrounded by Harvard College with brick sidewalks, historic architecture and dozens of great bars, restaurants, bookstores, clothing stores, and other landmarks and shops. With tons of cafes and easy access to the Charles River, Harvard Square has lots to offer visitors and has great transit options for exploring the rest of Cambridge and Boston!
Public Transit: Our apartment is just a few blocks from the Harvard T stop on the Red Line of the subway. There are also several bus routes that meet at Harvard Station.
Bicycle: As avid bicyclists, my wife and I are happy to provide directions for some great explorations along the Charles River Trail, the Minuteman Trail, and safest routes by bike to other area attractions.
We had a great time in Boston, Tom and Amy were very nice and the apartment was clean.
Really helpful couple with great tips about the city. I felt really welcome. Great location, just a very very short walk to the Harvard square. A really nice experience overall.
Location was very close to Harvard square which was my primary criteria. But Tom went out of his way to make my stay extra easy. He gave helpful guidance on where my conference would be, willingly received some deliveries that came a day before my arrival, helped with making an (website hidden) return and left quarters for me to get laundry done even without me asking. Small things that made the stay a bit easier. On top of that, he didn't oblige me in any tedious conversations but when I did take the time to chat, had a really interesting conversation about the degree he's pursuing.
Tom is een vriendelijke, rustige en heel correcte gastheer.
De woning was proper en netjes in orde.
De kamer zelf is klein.
Heel rustige ligging in fantastisch mooie buurt ,dichtbij het gezellige Harvard Square.
Tom and Amy were the perfect hosts! They made us feel right at home. The apartment was clean, comfy and cozy! Just a hop, skip and jump from Harvard Square! We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone!
Tom and Amy's place is great for a few days. It's close to Harvard Square and you can take the T to get to pretty much anywhere you want to go. The apartment is clean and the cats keep to themselves unless you try to love on them.
I really enjoyed my stay with Tom and Amy. Their extra room is cozy and comfortable, their home impeccably clean and their central location in Cambridge was very convenient. They were both very friendly hosts, enjoyed chatting with Tom about GIS and transportation, two interests we shared. Also enjoyed meeting their adorable cat, who was equally friendly :)
