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 room is on the first floor and has one common bathroom with a tub, a shared living room, and a shared kitchen. There is refrigerator, stove, toaster-oven, couch, pots n pans, dishes and of course, the all important: WiFi. You will see the other rooms listed separately on this website.

Guests who stay downstairs are more than welcome to hang out in the common areas upstairs if the downstairs feels too "lived in" for your taste. The owner Adam lives in the downstairs part of the house with his son Gabe, while the upstairs apartment is entirely for guests and has its own entrance. 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 $10 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.

The room was clean and warm, and accurately listed. The pricing was fair, and the street was quiet. I would recommend this listing.

Adam is a very quick and responsive host. He's interesting to talk to and sparks incredibly interesting conversations. This room appears small in the photos but is actually quite large and accommodating. There's drawer space for cloths, and a huge desk to get work done. The kitch…
