Steps from Cambridge's cafés, food shops, restaurants, music & bookshops, plus an easy walk to T or bus. Walk to Harvard Sq. through leafy neighborhoods & campus quads. Come home to our quiet street in the evening and cuddle up with movies & games.

The space

Single family home, recently renovated, with four bedrooms on three floors, plus an overflow twin in a semi-private nook, finished basement and optional toddler bed. Sleeps 7 easily, and perfect for 4-6 adults and miscellaneous kids. Bedrooms 1 and 2 have private baths, bedrooms 3 and 4 share a full bath with double sinks. The common space twin bed is in 3rd floor nook overlooking our mellow street and would share the 3rd floor full bath. There's also a half-bath on the first floor.

The kitchen is stocked with coffee and tea, and virtually any pot or pan you need for cooking and baking. This is our home and we are a family of four with active eaters, so the fridge is in constant use. However, we pare down and clear a space when guests arrive, so you should be able to comfortably cook during your stay if you want to. Information on local restaurants is provided in the house guidebook.

Guest access

You have access to the whole house except for use of the office on the third floor and our closets.

Interaction with guests

Depending on timing I may be around to greet you, or available via phone/text/email. I'm very responsive, and also have another experienced AirBnB host as a backup contact person should you need quick attention.

Other things to note

NOTE: We have an indoor cat whose care and feeding is part of the deal.

Seven of us stayed in Beth s awesome house while visiting Cambridge for our nephew s Bar Mitzvah. Beth was great at answering our questions in advance and we were confident that should there be any problems they would be addressed immediately. Everything was perfect and extremely comfortable and welcoming. The beds were great and the common areas were perfect for gathering and catching up with family..The kitchen was fully equipped and we were sorry that we were only able to have our breakfasts there. The location is great for exploring Cambridge and even more perfect for us as we were just a five minute walk from our family..I seem to be saying "perfect" a lot. Hopefully we will be able to return in two years when our niece has her Bat Mitzvah!

Beth's place is amazing. I can't begin to give enough compliments. It's a super quiet location. It's very comfortable and airy and with tons of light. Cassidy the kitty is very sweet, an added bonus. I stayed here with my parents and partner's parents and there was enough room and bathrooms for everyone. The kitchen is enormous and great place to hang out and talk. Thanks to Beth and her family for letting us stay at her house. It made for a very relaxed and comfortable weekend.

This was my first Airbnb experience and Beth's beautiful home and communication exceeded the description and pictures. Beth made me feel comfortable, secure and truly wanted us to have a good experience. The home is magnificent and everything is provided. There were 5 of us ranging in age from 9 to 65 and each of us had a favorite place in Beth's home. We walked to dinner, groceries and morning coffee. We loved walking Cambridge's beautiful neighborhoods, and Boston was easy to get to with public transportation or a short drive. Beth left perfect instructions so there was no need to contact her for additional help. I recommend Beth's home and would stay here again and again. AND, Cassidy, the cat, is a sweetheart and a pleasure to take care of.
