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.
This is a beautiful neighborhood; quiet and green but minutes from transportation to Cambridge and Boston - the perfect combination. In summer the neighborhood blooms with beautiful gardens and is lovely to walk.
The buses to Cambridge or Boston are a five minute walk to the bottom of our street. From there, Cambridge is a 15 minute ride. Boston is accessible by bus or subway, depending on your destination. That trip takes between 30 -45 minutes.

Laurie was wonderful, very accommodating when our arrival time changed unexpectedly. It was a short stay but a very pleasant one!
Laurie is very nice, kind, thoughtful and helpful host, and we enjoyed staying in her home very much. It was very clean, neat, nicely decorated... Quick breakfasts and fresh coffee were unforgettable. Garden were amazing.... her home is not in metro area, you need to take a bus, but just 10-15 min to Harward station, but neighborhood is very nice and recommended....
Great place to stay, definitely stay there in 2nd time, highly recommended for all....
Thank you Laurie for everything, hope to see you again, will never forget delicious food and coffee....
She was there when I arrived to drop my bag and meet her, I did not even have to ring the doorbell for her to open the door. The neighborhood is quiet and very nice. When I returned in the evening she welcomed me again and interrupted her TV watching to chat with me.
Our stay in Laurie's home could not have been better. Laurie was accommodating and helpful in planning our arrival to her home late in the evening, the room was comfortable and clean, the house was beautiful and easy to access from public transport and she had the best yogurt and fresh fruit for breakfast! I would highly recommend staying in her Sunny Room!
We had a wonderful stay at Laurie. The room was exactly as shown in the pictures. Sunny, clean and very cozy. Especially enjoyed the fresh flowers. Very nice! Laurie made us feel right at home and gave us some great tips on good restaurants in the neighborhood. The breakfast and fresh coffee which Laurie served the next morning were a perfect close to our stay. Thank you Laurie!
Laurie was there when I arrived and made me feel welcome, showing me the room and explaining the situation with parking cars in the driveway each evening. The house and room was as depicted on the listing and the neighborhood was very pleasant, residential and quiet. Laurie provides a great breakfast and tries hard to make it a comfortable experience for everyone. She is helpful to out of towners in exploring the area.

About the Host, Laurie
I am a teacher and private tutor, specializing in math. I love my work. I have two (young) adult children so my nest is usually empty ! I enjoy cooking, swimming, hiking, reading and movie going.
For many years I was a home stay host for foreign exchange students studying in Boston. We loved having the visitors so look forward to meeting new people through Air BnB.
