About the property

Beautiful architect-designed home in desirable neighborhood

Flooded with light, our architect-designed fully furnished 2,600-square foot town home offers an open floor plan with 8 beautiful room areas; southern exposures; a single-home feel; 3 potential bedrooms (a king-sized bed, a double bed, and a queen-sized bed); 2.5 architect-designed bathrooms with custom marble and travertine; stunning master bedroom suite that occupies entire third floor and includes Bain Ultra air tub, 16' cathedral ceilings and private deck; sliders to a large back deck on the first floor and additional porch on the second floor; white picket fence; 20-minute walk to Harvard Square; 5-minute walk to the Charles River; 10-minute walk to grocery stores, pharmacy and restaurants; 10-minute walk to Central Square and Red Line subway stop; tree-lined streets in quiet, desirable neighborhood; laundry; 2-zone central ac; cable and wireless internet access; grand first floor ideal for family interaction and entertaining; stainless steel appliances in kitchen; 1 off-street (driveway) parking with brick pavers; and Queen Anne premium wood windows, crown mouldings and wainscoting.

Your comfort and pleasure are important to us. We can compile a list of attractions if you let us know why you are visiting. Are you dropping off your child at Harvard? Check out the thin crust pizza and wine list at Cambridge One. Do you have children? A new Boston-area LEGOland just opened last year. Are you interested in glass-blowing? The glass-blown flower exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History will glass-blow your mind! Boston has Fenway Park, an aquarium, the Museum of Fine Arts, a contemporary art museum (ICA), the Freedom Trail, and much more.

We will greet you or leave instructions to find a key at 4 pm on check-in day. We are within walking distance of two grocery stores, but if you want to send a grocery list in advance, we'll stock the fridge for your first night, save receipts, and you can reimburse us for the food. If you are treating your spouse to a wedding anniversary trip, we can set up the master bedroom suite with candles, rose petals--and champagne! If you are celebrating your child's birthday, we can help arrange decorations and a cake. Please just let us know how we can make your trip a special

Our preferred minimum stay during peak season (which starts with Marathon weekend and goes through summer) is 3 or 4 days, but we list only 2 days on this site as our official minimum, so we definitely take exceptions. We have a maximum 4-person capacity. Our home is not child-proof for babies, toddlers, and young ones, but we welcome children 10 years and older. (Note: There are three sets of stairs in this home.)

We have a king-sized bed in the master bedroom with en suite on the third floor, a double bed on the second floor, and a queen-sized bed on the garden level (in the playroom/TV room). All three beds are real beds with real mattresses. There are so sleeper sofas or futons masquerading as real beds! You will sleep well...

Come experience a five-star vacation. See you soon.

Enjoy our home! We're a no-shoes house, please, and we're a no-smoking property (meaning, there is no smoking anywhere on the property inside or out, and we do not wish to rent to smokers). We love animals, but we do not accept pet visitors at this time. Please stretch out on the back deck furniture and relax, but please cover the furniture when you leave the house or go to bed; the cover is already on the back deck. Please do not fry fish in the house, in order to keep the house smelling fresh for subsequent guests. Please do not lean against the huge and delicate Hunter Douglas shade behind the bed in the third floor master bedroom suite. Let us know what we can do to make your visit a great one. We have a maximum guest capacity of 4. Please see the link to all our guidelines, which you can review before you book. Thanks for your interest.
