The Space


We are located on historic tree lined Bigelow Street (and Massachusetts Ave.). Across from the gorgeous City Hall Green. We are central to everything! The #1 Mass. Ave bus is at the bottom of our street (literally around a 1 minute walk away), and the redline T(subway) is 3 blocks away. AND the city just installed an awesome brand new Hubway bike rental station at the bottom of our street!

The street itself is quiet, yet STEPS away from all the great coffee shops, award wining restaurants, bookstores, Whole Foods grocery, shopping, pubs, music, etc! You can walk to either Harvard or MIT, or HBS in minutes.

Our duplex loft was renovated by NYC's Eric Lifton of Mesh Architects.
Not only did they keep the original historic carriage house details, but they also included several of their staple light fixtures throughout!

The first floor includes an open floorspace living room area with kitchenette, and a small European style bathroom (note there is no bathtub) including bathroom amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, cream, blowdryer, & white clean fresh waffle towels. We also include WIFI of course.
The shared yard and grill are also yours to enjoy.

The second floor balcony has a full sofa-bed with foam mattress padding which is made up and ready for your arrival.

Please email me if you have any questions. We adore living here, and as foodies - can supply you with great names of restaurants and places to hear great music, dance, etc. Also several of our airbnb guests have left their own insights of places they enjoyed.

NOTE: PLEASE INQUIRE FIRST before booking anything. Even though our calendar lists as unavailable we may be able to accommodate you so please inquire about your dates and we'll see what we can do.

here are a few laundromats and laundry services at bottom of street. For long stays (3 weeks) there is an additional $100 cleaning fee added to the rate.

Events: if you're interested in hosting an event the rate is different (obviously higher) and we must approve it first.

Other Things to Note

Our loft is not currently handicap accessible as it is a separate standalone carriage house next in the backyard next to our building. Guests get to the loft by walking up 3 steps from the sidewalk and continuing down our side yard path to another set of 5 steps. If you do need wheelchair access we can discuss other possible options with you in hopes to accommodate everyone.

We do have 2 dogs which at times may be in the yard. They are incredibly friendly, but they tend to bark to say hello as well as at the neighbor's dog so please let us know before booking if that may be an issue as we can make sure they do not go in the yard when you are in our loft. Your relaxing stay is important to us so please don't be shy if it's an issue for you.

We love kids! - But unfortunately due to funkiness of the loft, it is unsafe for young children as their are no safety children railings on the steps or platform loft. Please inquire if you have young children.

Pets: (no pets allowed in the loft unfortunately)
While we absolutely adore dogs (and have two ourselves). We can't have them stay in our loft and need to be considerate to all our guests - including those with allergies. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please inquire if you have questions.

Please do not leave any food (opened or unopened) anywhere inside our loft. This includes anything you've stored inside our refrigerator, cabinets, or on the counters.

Please leave all your used/dirty towels in a pile by the front door.

The loft is event friendly, however no events are allowed in our loft without prior discussion and specific approval. The rate will not be the nightly rate and will be a set price for the event.

Have fun, enjoy Cambridge, and treat our loft as you'd treat your own home.
