Lynn O'Donovan is a lovely lovely person. And the bedroom is just the coziest spot with a comfy bed, tub of toiletries one might need, and a comfy glider for reading. The apartment is centrally located within walking distance to both Central and Harvard Squares; it's the perfect spot for exploring. She was so easy to communicate with by phone and text.
Lynn and her husband were so sweet, kind, and welcoming, if that's not enough they're also really interesting! They were very generous and considerate. The house is clean, cozy, and comfortable and you can't ask for a more convenient location in Cambridge. All of the goodies available for breakfast were superb. They both really care about making sure you have a great experience and you will. It felt as comfortable as staying with friends.
Lynn and Brian were truly the most gracious, sincere, welcoming, and kindest hosts I could have imagined. When I say I felt at home, I mean I truly felt at home. Everything was clean and the check-in/check-out was seamless. Lynn even offered to drive me to the T as I was leaving!
Brian and I had some wonderful conversations and he and Lynn gave me all the Boston wisdom I needed. They were an incredible resource in that regard; anything you need to know about the city is right there in the living room! (Or, in my case, the kitchen.) Thanks for everything!
I went to Cambridge for a symposium at which I was speaking at Harvard. This room is a short walk to Harvard Yard, which makes it perfect for anyone visiting Harvard. Lynn was welcoming from the moment I met her. She and her husband are genuine hosts in the fullest sense of the word, as well as interesting people and active citizens of the greater Boston community. I make a positive recommendation without reservation. The room was very comfortable and the neighborhood was lovely.
michelle- thanks so much- and great idea about the cup in bathroom!! I try to be green- so will leave a nice water glass next to bed!!!! THanks for that idea and stay in touch!!!!
Very cosy and homey - Lynn is very accommodating and I had some really good conversations with her. The room is really nice and so is the neighbourhood. Lynn made sure I had breakfast, coffee, places to go and see and an umbrella for rainy days - I could not have wished for a better stay or a nicer host :-)
Lynn is a lovely person who succeeds in making you feel as welcome as can be. I thoroughly enjoyed having long talks with her and her talky cat Diamond. The house is beautiful, homely and very conveniently located. I can definitely recommend this place!
Lynn is a very friendly and welcoming host. She's great to talk to and always made sure that I had everything that I needed. The entire house is very clean and spacious. She also provided breakfast for me, which was great! If I came through Cambridge again, I would definitely stay with Lynn.
Lyndsay and Brian were wonderful hosts. They have a lovely family home, convenient to MIT and to Harvard. Gracious and charming.
Lynn and Brian were great hosts. They were friendly, helpful, and hospitable. When they said, "Make yourself at home," they really meant it. Their comfortable home is within walking distance of Harvard Square, including many great restaurants in Cambridge. I found it really convenient for my conference at Harvard. I would highly recommend that you stay with them.
thanks Jenny- really would have loved to chat more about your work- next time!!!
Lynn was a wonderful host. She is super warm and personable; she was helpful in pointing out where to eat in the neighborhood, and was genuinely interested in hearing my trip. I felt comfortable and totally at ease while staying here, entering/leaving the house at any time. The house is also conveniently located just a few blocks away from Harvard, and central to Cambridge. I highly recommend Lynn's place to anyone.
Lynn and family were great guests. We'd have them over again gor sure!
Lynn and Brian are totally lovely guests and were super respectful and took great care of our place. Highly recommended to their future hosts!
Lindsay and her family were a pleasure to host. They were cheerful and friendly and easy to communicate from the get go. They were very respectful of our home and even left us some delicious goodies! In addition they went as far as fixing a broken chain in our toilet! I would recommend them as guests any time and I look forward to hosting them again soon!
Lindsay was an excellent guest, very personable and easy to communicate with and took good care of the place. She sounds like a terrific Airbnb host too. I definitely recommend to other hosts and look forward to seeing her and her husband again in the future.
Wonderful guests! So lovely to have the O'Donovans. They're a pleasure to host.
We were happy to host Brian while he was visiting his daughter in Montreal. He and his wife are welcome back anytime!
