Airy and elegant, fabulous location
If you are coming to spend time in Boston or at Tufts, Lesley, Harvard, or MIT, this is the perfect place for you to be. You won’t need a car, so leave your car in the driveway and hop on the T -- it's just a four minute walk away. This spacious and beautiful apartment is on the second floor of an elegant 1890's two-family home with high ceilings and big windows.
We’re just one and a half blocks from the Davis Square T stop (Red Line Subway) and a half-block from Massachusetts Ave, so you can be in Arlington, Boston, Cambridge or Medford by public transit in minutes. There’s also easy access to Route 2 and the Bike Path. Davis Square is full of life. There are numerous coffee and ice cream shops, and restaurants of every kind. Theater, music, movies, lovely shops -from groceries to clothing, a fitness club, bowling, pool halls and a Farmer’s Market are all within a few blocks.
You’ll have a private entrance, and the whole floor to yourself. The main living area is a large open space that includes the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The living room the sofa opens to become a single bed. The private master suite includes an ensuite bathroom with an extra-long soaking tub, a large walk-in closet/dressing area, a high-end Sealy king-size bed with a padded head-board, and a small desk. There's also a dressing room that's so big that people often use it as a nursery -- we can provide a pack-n-play porta-crib. The beautiful and sunny study is equipped with a desk and comfortable chair as well as a day bed for reading or sleeping. The front bedroom is furnished with twin beds and a comfortable chair, and we can add an air mattress. There's also a second bathroom (shower/sink/toilet) and a full laundry. The private balcony is a perfect place to sit for morning coffee or a peaceful evening glass of wine.
The apartment is served by central air conditioning with the exception of the study, which has its own portable air conditioner.
The walls are a celebration of fine art, and if you love something you can buy it and take it home with you. There's a selection of mixed media works, photographs, etchings, lithographs, and fine watercolors. We rotate work from our collection, and it's all worth your attention.
One driveway parking space is included in the nightly rate. Please let us know if you'll have more than one car.
Please contact us for rates if you are interested in a one-bedroom/one bath configuration.
The very-well-equipped kitchen is served by two under-counter refrigerator/freezers – plenty of space for regular grocery shopping, but not suitable for bulk shopping.
A cat lives downstairs, but is not allowed in the apartment.

myself my wife Alacoque and 2 sons stayed in Rebecca and Richards house over the New Year.We had a wonderfull time in there beautiful house and would have no hesitation in recommending this as a great place to stay.Rebecca offered to let us stay an extra night if we did not get out of Boston due to storm which hit the area on the 2 nd January.I believe our flight to Dublin was the last plane out of Boston that night.Again thanks for the offer much appreciated.

This place was wonderful. It has plenty of room and is close to Davis Square. We highly recommend it. Rebecca was friendly and right there when we arrived to fill us in on all we needed and was available to us though we didn't need anything.
I stayed at Rebecca and Richard's place for about a week with two friends. The house itself was fantastic: clean, spacious, modern, everything you need for a group of friends or a family. The location was also excellent - nearby to the subway, drug/grocery store, restaurants and bars, and in a very safe and lively neighbourhood.
Rebecca was a great host, she took time to show us around the house and the neighbourhood, and was easily contactable and responsive via email & phone.
I would definitely stay at Rebecca & Richard's place again, and would recommend it to friends & family.
My notorious finicky family stayed in Rebecca and Richard's place. They absolutely loved it. Reported highlights included spotless prep of the space, the sunshine flooding the apartment in the morning, and the pressed sheets, as well as the fantastic art.
The apartment had everything we needed and was at a very central location. Rebecca is a very nice host.
Thanks, Rebecca for making our stay a very pleasant one. The place is lovely. We love your bread and also the home made soap :) The location of the house made it so easy to get around Cambridge and Boston area. It is just a block away from T-station.
I cannot recommend the stay highly enough. The apartment is spacious, beautifully clean and well equipped. Rebecca and Richard are thoughtful and communicative hosts. The location is excellent - minutes from Davis Square which has lots of brilliant restaurants, and a T Station which takes you straight into town within 20 minutes.
Rebecca's place is perfect! Great location, lots of space, comfy beds, cozy towels, and impeccably clean. She has thought of everything. It truly was our home away from home. There were 5 of us comfortably in the apartment that we used as a base during our time in Boston. Easy access to the "T", groceries and Davis Square were fabulous. Each of us had a bed to sleep in and we had everything we needed in the fully stocked kitchen. Rebecca is a wonderful host. We felt safe, secure and pampered. Thank you Rebecca!
And thank you, Eric.
It always makes me happy when people stop feeling like guests and find themselves feeling at home! You really went above and beyond in leaving the place in such splendid condition, so please let the rest of your group know that we really appreciated their consideration.
It was lovely to have your good-natured group here, and fun to have a team to cheer for at the Regatta.
Great place. Very clean. A lot of space. Well equipped. Very good location. Easy communication and a lot of support from Rebecca. Just perfect. Thanks.
Superb and exceptional residence. Conveniently located to Davis Square T-stop, wonderful restaurants and shops at Davis Square as well. Nearby organic produce market for easy groceries.
Spic and span, immaculate condition. Everything that one needs is provided, down to emergency toiletries (super nice touch!).
Rebecca is delightful as a hostess - gave us really good recommendations on some unique experiences in Boston. The freshly baked bread made us feel like we were family, which was very special indeed.
Highly recommend Rebecca and Richard's place. Made our family trip to Boston extra meaningful.
We're so delighted that you all enjoyed your stay in Boston, and we want to thank you for leaving the apartment in such exceptional condition. That was really gracious and thoughtful of all of you.
Please tell Kirsten that her thank you note was one of the best ever, and that I think she has truly excellent taste in activities, art, and chocolate. I think she will rule the world!
