This is one of two bedrooms, each listed separately (see "two lovely bedrooms...) with private bath in newly renovated Watertown home. Minutes to Cambridge and Boston. Perfect for couple or single professional visiting Cambridge or Boston.

The space

Our home is in a lovely neighborhood with lots of green space but just minutes from both Cambridge and Boston by bus or rail. This is one of two bedrooms. Each room is listed separately (see "sunny room in beautiful home") The bathroom is shared if both bedrooms are occupied. It is cleaned daily. A guest would have access to a newly renovated kitchen. In warm weather there is a outdoor patio with a grill, overlooking a private, landscaped yard.

Guest access

Bedroom, bath, kitchen and laundry. Wireless internet. Patio in summer.

Interaction with guests

I love having guests and enjoy meeting new people. I have lived in the area many years and and am happy to suggest places to visit and sights to see in the Boston area and beyond.

For my first AirBnB stay as a business traveler, Laurie's place could not have spoiled me more! The room was clean and cozy. The mattress was delightfully medium-firm. The breeze through the windows was exactly what I needed. And where do I begin with her generous and delicious breakfast offerings? I will be recommending Laurie's place to friends and colleagues alike.

Laurie was a fantastic hostess. Her home was clean, and the room we stayed in was very comfortable. Each morning she had an amazing breakfast set out in the kitchen for us! We had greek goat/sheep yogurt with granola and fresh fruit. She was very accommodating, my fiancée has a gluten intolerance, and she had gluten free bread for her! The location was great too. The 71 bus stop which brings you into Harvard Sq. is a short walk from her home. I highly recommend Laurie's Airbnb. We will definitely keep this Airbnb in mind for our next Boston trip.

Laurie is an amazing host and an amazing person. Her house is in a perfect location, situated just outside Cambridge (which is a quick bus ride). The house is beautiful and our room was clean and comfortable. Fresh fruit and yogurt was waiting for us each morning, and it was delicious! Laurie was very helpful and made herself available to answer any questions we had. I look very forward to staying with Laurie again, soon:)

Laurie is a wonderful hostess. She gave us a warm welcome when we reached. Every morning she prepared fruitful breakfast for us. The room is clean and comfortable, and the environment around the house is very quiet. We really enjoyed our stay in her house!

This B &B is a WOW! As you drive up, the curbside setting is perfect. The house is amazing; Laurie has restored it with such taste and warmth. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. She left a lovely breakfast that we ate overlooking her gorgeous garden. It was so peaceful throughout our stay and great for our stay. The location was perfect because we were traveling to Boston and we wanted to be close to public transportation which is within walking distance. Great restaurants both fine dining, ethnic and a fun pizza place nearby. We will definitely return to this B&B. We highly recommend Laurie’s place. We thank her so much for a delightful stay.

Laurie was very welcoming and the room was great to rest in. I did not have much time to interact as my schedule was very full while I was there but she did provide a wonderful space.

Laurie User ProfileLaurie is a superhost.

I am a private tutor specializing in math. I have two (young) adult children, one lives at home at the moment. I am an avid reader, swimmer and dancer.
For many years I was a home stay host for foreign exchange students studying in Boston. I really enjoy having visitors so look forward to meeting new people through Air BnB. My experience so far has been wonderful; a very rewarding exchange.
