Beautiful home in a great location

My friends and I rented this house for a convention and could not have been happier with our stay. Lynne was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. She answered all of my questions quickly, no matter how trivial. She met us when we arrived and was right next door if we needed anything. The train station is a short walk from the house which made getting around a breeze. We didn't need our car once. The house has a lot of character and is very well maintained. We had everything we needed! Overall an excellent experience.

Enchanting Home for a Boston Family Vacation

Our family of 6 adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. The outdoor living spaces lend an air of additional charm to this 100yr+ old home. The modern kitchen comes will great amenities and was a favorite family gathering spot. The master suite upstairs and private deck were so enjoyable! We parked the car and used public transportation our entire stay. The Green Line is a short walk from the home. Thank you Lynn for a great vacation home experience. Great wifi! I highly recommend this home!

Far exceeded our expectations; a very special home

We gathered in Cambridge from all around the country to celebrate 2 graduates. Lynne and Paul were exceptional hosts, and this house is amazing. The photos don't do it justice. From the well stocked kitchen to the expert cleaning to the fluffy towels to the sun warmed deck and the ideas for how to make our stay more comfortable.....this VRBO experience far exceeded our expectations. Lynne and I chatted upon my arrival and I felt like I'd found a friend for life. As we settled into the weekend, we had precious family time around their beautiful dining room table. We had plenty of room for small clusters of family conversations. We were steps away from restaurants and grocery stores and the T stop. And we felt welcomed and at home. Lynne and Paul, you have a very, very special home and your hospitality is gracious and warm. Thank you, thank you.

Great home for out-of-town wedding guests

This house is nicely appointed and works well for family gatherings, especially those who like to gather in the kitchen around a large island. We had our morning breakfast and afternoon regroupings around the island. There's enough space to give privacy yet you'll feel like you're in a family home. This was so much better than a hotel and its location in Cambridge was only short train ride, Uber or Lyft away from Boston and surrounding points of interest. We gathered at the house after a Saturday family wedding and it was so much better than trying to go back to a hotel room or bar. We had 7 adults in our party and found it comfortable. There is a nice deck off the kitchen that gave us additional space to visit and relax. Paul and Lynne were very welcoming and most accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend this house.
