The space

** Please note there has been some confusion lately regarding our exact address. Map programs may attempt to auto-fill our Cambridge street address and may try take you to a similar street in Somerville. Guests are advised to double check our address when using Map programs, Uber, Lyft or other means to locate us. Thanks! **

Please also be aware that the house you are booking is an old house. It has not been recently remodeled and it will be considered by most people to be 'messy'.

All guests can expect a freshly vacuumed room with clean linens and towels, but the living areas outside of your room will not necessarily be 'spic-and-span' and so if this is something that would bother you then please inquire elsewhere.

We are located in the middle of Cambridge, 3 blocks from the Red Line Subway Stop at Central Square. Walking distance to MIT, Harvard, restaurants, bars, cafes, yoga and dance studios, night life, library, wide variety of restaurants, Harvest food co-op, Whole Foods, and Star Market. Despite proximity to dense, urban, happening location, the house is peaceful and quiet and the neighborhood is very safe. Central Square is a colorful and fun part of historic Boston.

If you are looking to get downtown you can take the #1 bus which goes down Mass Ave, take the Red Line "T" 4 stops to Park Street, or you can even just take a leisurely walk over one of the bridges that cross the scenic Charles River. We often go on walks from here to various areas in downtown Boston for fun and exercise. Cambridge is also worth visiting all by itself. Harvard Square is an easy 15 minute walk from us.

Our house offers casual, friendly, basic accommodations, and is furnished. This listing is for one of 3 rooms in the upstairs apartment which has one common bathroom with tub, a large living room, and a large kitchen with lots of light. There is a communal TV, refrigerator, stove, toaster oven, microwave, couches, kitchen sink, pots n pans, dishes, lots of condiments...and of course, the all important: WiFi.

All 3 of the rooms are available and you will see the other two rooms listed separately on this website. The owner Adam lives in the downstairs part of the house with his son Gabe, so the upstairs apartment is entirely for guests and has its own entrance so you can come and go as you like. You will probably meet some fellow travelers, as we often have a full house.

If you are bringing a car you must let us know that in advance. We do have one or two flexible parking spaces in front of the house and may be able to accommodate you. Under no circumstances is it permissible to park in the lot behind the house, for any amount of time. Please do not put your car anywhere other than where it has previously been agreed upon.

Please also try to give us an idea of when you will be arriving. If it's impractical to greet you we will put out a key. We can't stay home all day every day and so if booking please include expected arrival time. If you need to check-out in the late afternoon or evening then tell us how late in case somebody is checking in on the day you want to leave. You can always store your luggage with us and come back and get it later.

One last thing, we are often adding $5 extra to the cost for booking for only one night since we receive dozens of requests for solo nights and it turns out to be inadequate return for the effort involved.

Adam is a great host and his house is full of character and charm. The book selection in my room and cleanliness made the experience feel very comforting and welcoming.

Listing as described. A simple and cozy place, with many elements such as carpets and decorations that make it feel like a home. Great for the price point. Adam was quick to respond but was curt at times. For example, when I asked for the size of the bed to check if it would fit …

Adam's place is an unbelievable value. I had everything I needed. It's not fancy, but it's clean, functional, and a very reasonably priced. Adam is very fast at responding to messages, and the location is excellent (4 minute walk from the Central station on the T). My only ve…

Pro: value for money, location (right near subway, Asian market, stores and restaurants), relatively quiet location even when right by everything. Cons: one bathroom for three rooms (not a problem during our stay), pictures are a tad optimistic about the actual state of the room …
