The Space

This bedroom is located in a home that is no further than 7 minutes walk to Kendall Square which is on the Red Line and MIT. It is also a 10 minute walk to the Green Line at Lechmere Station. It is owned by a fabulous cook, who loves doing breakfast things for her guests. It is in a very safe neighborhood and a very active one too. The room is carpeted, and has a full bathroom attached to the bedroom. It is private bathroom at night time. The Museum of Science is a good walk from the house....and some great local restaurants that are just fabulous are only 3 short blocks away.

We are well located for just about anything, and have a huge Mall, the Galleria Mall, one of the largest urban malls and extremely popular only 6 short blocks from the house.

Kendall Square is a great (email hidden)r getting to Boston, Massachusetts General Hospital, MIT, Harvard, or anywhere else in the Cambridge area. Safe and quiet and great neighbors who are friendly. Large park next to the house for running, playing any sport basically, and joining in on games that run most weekends if you are here then. The airport is a quick 15 minute ride at most, on busy times, and on weekends and evenings it can easily take just about 10 minutes with a cab. One can always take the MTA to get there. That will take at the worst time around 30 minutes. This is a special place because the Super Host who lives here wants to make sure that you have what you want and need while you stay with her!!!! Welcome to Cambridge!!!!

My place is unique because you have your own floor basically to live on and sleep when you are out the house. It is super quiet and it is like having your own studio apartment.

The dog that is at the house is a Morkie...Maltese Yorkie, and is not the allergic kind..she does not have those genes so to you are all fine, those with allergies...I have had people stay who are allergic to dogs and have had NO problem (email hidden)e is only 10 pounds and a delight to have around...very friendly and cute...

  • I have nothing but positive reports regarding my stay with Carole and her adorable dog Dixie. Very welcoming and sincere without being in your face. The facilities are amongst the best I have experienced with Airbnb, spotless clean, lots of hot water, good shower, fluffy towels and no shortage of heat in the house/room as it was bitter cold in Boston at the time.
    Carole facilated me when I arrived early morning on flight from California, really appreciated that as I was tired and cold :)
    great location for MIT/Kendall and the galleria mall.
    Will be back in the near future definitely

  • My stay with Carole was very nice. Her house is located in the middle of Cambridge, about 5 min from Kendall station. There are several restaurants, bars and pubs reachable within less than 5 min on foot. Carole herself is a very nice person, I liked the conversations with her. Her little dog Dixie was always waiting for me when I returned, and is very lovely. Every morning there was fresh coffee and the choice between several kinds of breakfast (I am myself not a breakfast person, but I could have had several choices of cereal, toast, fruit....). In total I enjoyed it a lot and would stay with Carole any time, again.

  • It was great to have our own bathroom. There was no problem with arrival and Carole arranged for someone to meet us.Carole knew a lot about the local area . and she was interesting to talk to. Dixie the little dog is so cute and calm. Thankyou

  • This location was perfect for me! I was in town for yoga teacher training and I did not want to rent a car. Carole's house is literally across the street from the Broad Institute and a few blocks from the Kendall Square T stop. There are a bunch of cafes near by as well. I was so busy with work right before my visit that I didn't remind her when I was arriving until I was already getting of the plane in Boston. She graciously worked with me to meet at a mutually agreeable time. You have your own bedroom and bathroom so it's really private (which is good for yoga training!). You have access to the kitchen, she has breakfast foods and snacks available as well. Plus her dog is super cute! I highly recommend staying here!

  • I had a wonderful experience staying with Carole. The room was exactly as pictured and I could walk to the east side of the MIT campus in less than ten minutes. Carole is a wonderful host. She is friendly, accommodating, and an expert on the local community. I enjoyed getting to know her! Thank you Carole for a great stay.

    November 2012
  • Carole's set-up is perfect: a private room and private bathroom set apart from the rest of the house. Room is spacious, comfortable, and very quiet. Everything works. Kendall Square subway stop is a few minutes away. I highly recommend it.

    November 2012
