Enjoy a large sunny bedroom in a great  Victorian Era home, circa 1875 during your Cambridge stay.

The Porter Square/Davis Square neighborhood is one of the most desirable  in all of  Boston and Cambridge Grocery stores, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants of all sorts are within a block or two of the house. The sunny second floor, two bedroom still retains much of its original charm with two tin ceilings,  incredible wooden wallpaper in the grand foyer/stairway and sunny private porch.  The house  has hardwood floors throughout and a great old gas stove. You would, of course be welcome to make use of the kitchen and pantry. Your bedroom comes nicely furnished with a queen size bed, arm chair, desk, tv and internet. etc. Laundry services are available.  Linens and bath towels are supplied to make your traveling easier. Long or short term stays are welcome.  I do also have a small guest room with a comfortable futon bed that is good for short stays. Availble late April and through the year.

The SpaceThis room is built out of very thin wood and has a plastic accordion door. We made it in response to seeing people renting out their couch for the same price but we thought having privacy would be better. The room is small but has room for hanging and storing clothes, a small desk for your laptop, a single bed, a chair, windows and several lighting options. There is a living room for you to hang out in. Also a completely functional kitchen for your use with a round table and chairs. There is a porch for people to hang out on and space for you to store your bikes. The apartament is in the same house as the other apartament where we sleep and it is our plan to use both. We are readily available to guests and you are welcome to come visit us in our apartment in the same house. We have lived in the Boston area a long time and can help you (if you need) get around and find fun things for you to do and see. Please read our reviews and rest assured that it is our aim to be hospitable, very clean and to provide you with an exellent value and the very best airbnb experience possible. Guest AccessThe whole apartment is for your use. You are welcome to cook, spend time in the sitting area or the porch

The SpacePlease read the full description and ensure my place is a good fit for your needs! Clean, spacious private bedroom in a fully furnished 3 bedroom/ 1 bathroom apartment between Harvard and Davis Sq. This bedroom is located on it's own floor, up a flight of stairs. I live on the city borderlands where Cambridge and Somerville meet, and am an easy, 7 minute walk to Porter Square T station (a Cambridge T stop) on the redline, 9min walk to Davis (From Porter 1 stop -- a 2 min ride -- to Davis or Harvard, 2 stops to Central, 3 stops to MIT, 5 to the Boson Commons) or a 3min walk to buses (87, 88, 96). Boston streets and city lines are confusing, so if you need to reach a specific location for your stay, I'd be happy to let you know the distance to get there before booking. If you are coming with a car, please let me know! I will need to arrange for you to have a parking pass. Please see details below. Free Wifi and use of shared space which includes fully equipped kitchen, living room, bathroom with essentials (towels, linens, soap), and a washer and dryer (in the apartment). Peaceful and quiet sanctuary - ideal for studying, relaxing, meditating. I will have another listing for the other rooms and the whole apartment when my mom and/or I will be traveling. This room has a comfortable full bed, dresser, and a desk. The apartment is located on a quiet, tree-lined side street, yet very close to all the activity of convenient Porter Sq, hip Davis Sq, Harvard Sq, Lesley University, and Tufts. 7-9 min walk to Porter Sq and Davis Sq restaurants (including my favorite Thai spot), shops, cafes, yoga studios, music/improv/comedy venues, movie theaters, the Minuteman Rail Trail where you can bike, rollerblade, jog, or walk, and public transport (the Redline and bus routes) to get you anywhere you need or want to go around Somerville/Cambridge/Boston. As it is a private residence, there are no locks on bedroom doors. Rest assured your bedroom will be private. This room is up a flight of stairs on its own floor. Bathroom, living room, and kitchen are shared spaces on the first floor. Airbnb, for me, is a great way to meet folks from around the world and to share my local knowledge with visitors. Driving/Parking: Walking and public transportation are most definitely the best way to get around the area. I highly advise against bringing/renting a car because it's unpleasant to drive in Boston and parking is extremely challenging and local cities are strict about giving out parking tickets. If you are driving from a nearby city or town and need to bring a car I can provide a free parking pass for 2 days (3 days if one includes a Sunday or holiday). If you need to park, please include this request in your inquiry, as other guests may request it as well and am only allowed one pass from the city. If you need to park longer, there are a few options. I can purchase a temporary permit for you from the city for $25 for up to 7 days, or $35 for up to 30 days. Alternatively, there are two relatively inexpensive parking garages nearby -- one at the Green St Parking Garage in Central Sq and one at the Alewife T stop ($7/day; $8 overnight). Please begin your inquiry by telling me if this is your first experience on airbnb or if you've used it before, what time you're planning to check-in / out, and your favorite color so I know that you've read this description and we're on the same page! A handy reference to ensure smooth check-in and check-out: https://www.airbnb.com/help/article/41 If the check-in / check-out times pose a challenge for your travel circumstances, let me know, and I'll do my best to accommodate. If you have any questions about accessibility, please do not hesitate to ask. And if there's anything I can do to make your stay more relaxed & comfortable, please let me know. I look forward to welcoming you! Interaction with GuestsI am very glad to share my home with guests. I am always happy to provide local tips and share great conversation! I do have several jobs and -- like most people who live in this city -- am quite swamped with work! At the same time, it is very important to me to be attentive to guests' needs. My level of interaction largely depends upon the guest and my work schedule. I've shared meals & laughs and have also had guests come and go with just a friendly chat or two. I try to be sensitive to each individual guest's style. Other Things to NoteShould I choose Jacey's place or a hotel? Jacey's place provides: - a friendly, local host who is happy to share tips and conversation with visitors - a host who will do their best to make you happy and comfortable during your stay and address any concerns - a home - a full kitchen you're welcome to use - a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere - a clean room with all essentials (towels, linens, A/C, heat) covered - use of washer/dryer - living room w/ cable TV, printer/copier/fax/scanner - short (7min) walk to Porter & Davis Sq - 7min walk to Red Line T, 24hr grocery store & CVS - living in a residential, quiet neighborhood; close to the bike path - sometimes healthy baked goods :) You might be happier in a hotel if you need: - 24/7 concierge service / travel agent - a private bathroom - a lock on the bedroom door - a daily professional cleaning service - a place where the host does not live - an impersonal environment that is NOT like staying with a friend or at a private home *If you value a homey, friendly environment with down to earth people then my place would be a good fit! FAQ: Q: Is the bathroom shared? A: Yes. It is a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. Schedule conflicts are rarely an issue as schedules are often offset. If you have any concerns, I'm happy to coordinate with you. Q: Is my room private? A: Yes Q: Is there a lock on my door? A: No. As this is a private residence, not a hotel, there are no locks on individual doors. You're room is private and no one but you will enter during your stay. I've been hosting since 2012 and never had an issue with this. Q: Can I park there? A: I highly advise against bringing/renting a car because it's unpleasant to drive in Boston, parking is extremely challenging, local cities are strict about giving out parking tickets, and public transport is very accessible here. If you are driving from a nearby city or town and need to bring a car I can provide a free parking pass for 3 days (4 days if one includes a Sunday). If you need to park longer, there are a few options. I can purchase a temporary permit for you from the city for $25 for up to 7 days, or $35 for up to 30 days. Alternatively, there are two relatively inexpensive parking garages nearby -- one at the Green St Parking Garage in Central Sq and one at the Alewife T stop ($7/day; $8 overnight). Q: How far are you from Harvard Square? A: 10min by public transit; 13min by bike; 28min walking. Q: Can I use the kitchen? A: Yes, you may use the kitchen freely. Please respect the space, take care of equipment and leave everything as you found it. Q: Can I use the washer dryer? A: Yes, you may use it. Q: Can I bring an extra person? A: I have an extra person charge of $20/night to account for additional utilities and shared space. For long-term guests, I make arrangements on a case by case basis. Q: Do you have a bike I could use? A: I have a mountain bike I let guests use, as long as they are careful and make sure to lock it up. I'm 5'3" and have had guests 5'8" use it. It would probably be too small for anyone taller than that. Q: How do I get to your place from the airport? A: Public transportation is free and easy from the airport to my place. I provide a clear set of directions near your arrival date. If you have lots of luggage and don't want to take public transport, you can take an Uber. If you don't have an account, I will give you my referral code and you'll get the first ride free! Q: When can I expect to receive the directions and instructions from you? A: I provide all details a few days prior to arrival. If you need this information sooner, just ask! Q: What are check-in & check-out times? A: Check is 3PM or later and check out is 12PM or earlier. This is to ensure time to clear between guests who check in & out on the same day. If this poses difficult for your travel plans, let me know and we'll try to make it work. Bonus Hidden Question: If you were a kind of cheese, what cheese would you be? Q: Can I leave my luggage there before check in or after check out? A: Yes, you are welcome to leave bags in the living room.

The SpaceWe've just revamped the whole space (thanks to my mom and aunts!) and WiFi is working fine. Also, there's FREE PARKING IN THE DRIVEWAY! *** THIS IS SELF-HOSTED RENTAL, which means you'll have to let yourself in and make sure you leave a clean space before departing. ***** Hello fellow AirBnBers, Welcome to Prospect Hill, the first spot a US flag was raised and now commemorated in a monument just up the street. That spot also marks one of my favorite panoramic views of Boston. Walk around the neighborhood and admire some spectacular period mansions, explore Union Square, Inman Square, Porter Square, Davis Square! Don't forget Broadway either-it's an up-and-coming neighborhood with lots of good eateries and a HUGE ceramics studio (Mudflats) where you can drop in for a class. Somerville (and surrounding Cambridge) offer a funky vibe, interesting events, proximity to MIT, Harvard, and Tufts, and EXCELLENT food, especially for the globally-minded. Delicious Thai, Peruvian, Ethiopian, Spanish, Indian (north and south!)...the list goes on. And of course, the neighborhood landmark brunch spot, The Highland Kitchen, is a short walk away. No, you don't understand, their dirty bird and shrimp n grits are to die for (I don't even like grits!)...and wow, pair that with their sangria or anything else from the bar? Heaven! Not that I'm a food motivated person of anything...=) More about the neighborhood: Did you know Somerville has the most artists per sq mile anywhere in the US outside New York? You should check them out in action at Brickbottom! I could go on about how amazing Somerville is and how accessible Boston and Cambridge are from the house (5 bus lines either diagonally across the door or within a 5 min walk; quick access to the Orange, Green, and Red line trains) but perhaps you're more interested in the place: Although two units now, this house was once a grand Victorian mansion built in 1865. You can still marvel at the handmade woodwork around the two fireplaces (closed up for a while) or the pocket doors separating the living and dining rooms. Before me, the house was owned by the same family since 1940. There's a lot of love, stories, and good energy here. =) Accommodations: This is a 2 bedroom set up (queen size bed in each bedroom) with a sofa bed in the living room and a very comfy couch that can sleep even a 6' person quite comfortably. There's a formal living room and separate dining room, a bar and study (that I still need to set up properly), a large eat-in-kitchen that overlooks the deck. There's a brand new bathroom with marble, a separate shower, and clawfoot tub. In the back, there's a two-level loft with a bedroom upstairs and a couch and table downstairs. There's a projector and speakers you can use to watch movies, etc. Please note there's no TV or landline phone in the house. There is a good sized deck off the kitchen and a backyard/brick patio you can take chairs out to for enjoying the weather. Coin-operated laundry in the basement, should you need it. There is also off-street parking in the driveway but let me know if you need to use it beforehand. A few things to be mindful of: - This is my home that I'm opening to you while away. Please be clean, respectful, and pick-up after yourself. - There are tenants upstairs so please respect their privacy and space. Do introduce yourself if you bump into them while getting in and out of the unit but they expect to be independent. - There is no smoking permitted ANYWHERE on the property. When you respond, please include details about yourself, including: - Why are you visiting Boston? What are you looking to accomplish during your stay? - What do you do to pay the bills? - What do you do for fun? Looking forward to having you enjoy this spot! =) Guest AccessYou'll need to use a lockbox to get into the house at your convenience and can use everything in the kitchen+fridge+cabinets. Interaction with GuestsI am out of town but always reachable via email. Diego is the local contact who can help out if there are any issues and my mom is helping me co-host and can also be reached by email. This is a spot for independent travelers who feel comfortable making a temporary home and exploring without supervision. Of course, there are plenty of tips I'll give you via the listing and via email, if requested.

Somerville (and surrounding Cambridge) offer a funky vibe, interesting events, proximity to MIT, Harvard, and Tufts, and EXCELLENT food, especially for the globally-minded. Delicious Thai, Peruvian, Ethiopian, Spanish, Indian (north and south!)...the list goes on. And of course, the neighborhood landmark brunch spot, The Highland Kitchen, is a short walk away. No, you don't understand, their dirty bird and shrimp n grits are to die for (I don't even like grits!)...and wow, pair that with their sangria or anything else from the bar? Heaven! Not that I'm a food motivated person of anything...=) More about the neighborhood: Did you know Somerville has the most artists per sq mile anywhere in the US outside New York? You should check them out in action at Brickbottom! I could go on about how amazing Somerville is and how accessible Boston and Cambridge are from the house (5 bus lines either diagonally across the door or within a 5 min walk; quick access to the Orange, Green, and Red line trains) but perhaps you're more interested in the place: Although two units now, this house was once a grand Victorian mansion built in 1865. You can still marvel at the handmade woodwork around the two fireplaces (closed up for a while) or the pocket doors separating the living and dining rooms. Before me, the house was owned by the same family since 1940. There's a lot of love, stories, and good energy here. =) Accommodations: This is a 2 bedroom set up (queen size bed in each bedroom) with a sofa bed in the living room and a very comfy couch that can sleep even a 6' person quite comfortably. There's a formal living room and separate dining room, a bar and study (that I still need to set up properly), a large eat-in-kitchen that overlooks the deck. There's a brand new bathroom with marble, a separate shower, and clawfoot tub. In the back, there's a two-level loft with a bedroom upstairs and a couch and table downstairs. There's a projector and speakers you can use to watch movies, etc. Please note there's no TV or landline phone in the house. There is a good sized deck off the kitchen and a backyard/brick patio you can take chairs out to for enjoying the weather. Coin-operated laundry in the basement, should you need it. There is also off-street parking in the driveway but let me know if you need to use it beforehand. Getting AroundFrom the airport: Taxi is quick and easy (shouldn't be more than $25) but if you want to take the T, take the silver line to South station and follow directions below. Otherwise, take the blue line to government center and follow green line directions below or to state st and follow orange line directions below. Green Line: Lechmere is the closest station from where you can take the 88 bus and get off at Medford St at Highland Avenue and walk to the door. Orange Line: Sullivan Station is the closest station from where you can take the 90 bus and get off at Medford St at Highland Avenue and walk to the door. You can also take the CT2 (weekdays only), 91, or 86 and get off at Washington St. at McGrath Hwy and walk up McGrath highway to Hamlet St. From South Station/Red Line: Take red line to Davis Square (Alewife or Outbound direction). Take the 90 bus toward Sullivan Station and get off at Medford St at Highland Avenue. Buses: The 90 and 88 stop right next to the house. You can walk to the Washington St at McGrath Hwy stop for the 80, 86, 91, and CT2 (weekday only) within 5-7 min.

The SpacePLEASE NOTE: DO NOT BOOK A RESERVATION UNTIL YOU HAVE HAD AN E-MAIL CONVERSATION WITH ME. This avoids having to cancel the reservation if we are not on the same page. Thank You Our beautiful, airy apt. has a cozy, furnished room (with a an airconditioner and a ceiling fan) which leads into a sunshiny common area of Living room and big eat-in kitchen. The apt. is on a very quiet, residential one way street. It is a pretty, tree lined street and the air is full of birdsong at most times. The apt. is about 2 blocks to Davis square which has a whole variety of restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, grocery stores and a great old movie theater. It is also a VERY SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD -and I say this particularly for women who are interested in this listing. I often walk home around midnight after having dinner with friends and I have always felt safe doing that. I have never felt this safe in any other neighborhood that I have lived at. The street is well lit and the houses are owned by people who have lived on the street for generations. There are also quite a few graduate students and young professionals that rent in on this street. We are clean, neat people and the apt. reflects that - it has new hardwood floors and a modern feel to it. There is free Wireless internet and the basement has a washer/dryer in it (coin-op). You share the kitchen with us - which is well stocked with pots and pans and a stove-top espresso coffee device. I don't offer a full breakfast - but a hot cup of tea is on the house along with the occasional muffins that I bake !! I also have another listing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/22872 Details: 6 minutes to Davis Subway and buses. Comfy bed with clean linens provided. Ceiling fan. Washer/Dryer (Coin-op)in the basement.

The SpaceA sunny room on a quiet street. The room has a "queen size" bed, where two people can fit quite comfortably The bed would be less comfortable for three people. Now, I can add a "queen size" air mattress, where one or two more people can comfortably sleep (or three, less comfortably). However, once this mattress is used, the room becomes noticeably smaller, with less space to stand. You may of course stand, sit and chill out in the living room and other common areas of the house, but your private space will be small. In summary, if you need a lot of private space, this room fits two. If you don't, it fits four. If you're young and have high tolerance for being crammed up, up to six people could theoretically fit — though really I don't recommend more than four. For a better rate, contact me directly. You can find me by searching the G for "QuietCambridgeRooms". Guest AccessGuests can self checkin and checkout at any time: each room has its own numeric access code, that also opens the apartment, but not other rooms. Be warned that the apartment is on the second floor. There is no elevator, and there are 22 steps of stairway. Rooms are rented from noon to noon. If you arrive early or depart late, you may leave your luggage in the office — not in the room. You will have access to the kitchen and living room. Interaction with GuestsI live most of the time in NYC. I have a complete guide to help you, I have helpers in Cambridge who clean the house, and I will try to dispatch help if there's an emergency; but I am not usually available to assist you during your stay. The NeighborhoodThe district is quiet, safe and residential. It is within walking distance (10-15 minutes) of the very active Porter Sq area, Davis Sq area, and Fresh Pond Mall, a shopping mall with Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, as well as of very nice parks. Getting AroundThe apartment is 5 minutes afoot from Alewife Station from where the Red Line will take you to Harvard, MIT, MGH or downtown in ten to twenty minutes (depending on your destination — use a maps website for commute times from Alewife Station). The gobuses to and from NYC also stops there. There is no parking spot. You may park at Alewife Station for ~$8 per night. Or in the street on Sundays. Other Things to NoteYou will share a common bathroom with guests staying in the Nursery (aka Nice Small Guest Room). That other room might be empty during low season, but is more likely to be packed during high season. I do NOT recommend this room if you have high standards of privacy or of availability regarding the bathroom. (Try my Large Master Room if available.) Please be considerate of the other occupants of the apartment, and of neighbors living in other floors or nearby houses. Be sure to lock the doors behind you. You will be held responsible if you leave the apartment door unlocked, in case of theft of your, my or other guests' property.

Interaction with GuestsI work from home or nearby coffee shops and do stand up comedy at night. I hangout and take some guests to shows with me and don't interact at all with other guests. I am happy either way or somewhere in the middle. The NeighborhoodGreat up and coming neighborhood. Their are usually street performers in the center of the square. Somerville Theater (1st run movie theater and performance venue) Museum of Bad Art (Free with movie) Davis Square Theater (performance art) Live Music- The Burren, Johny' Ds, and street performers 4 independent coffee shops (plus Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts) Restaurants and bars Boutiques and shopping Nails and Spas Getting AroundIt is Next door to the Red line which will take you anywhere in Boston.

The SpaceA nice small room, on a quiet street, in a safe district that's well connected to everything in Cambridge and Boston. The room was decorated as a nursery for my then newborn daughter. The room has a "queen size" bed, which can comfortably fit two people. The bed would be quite tight for three people. An additional "twin size" air mattress in the room, where one more person can comfortably sleep (or two, very uncomfortably). However, once this extra air mattress is used, the room becomes tiny, with little space to stand. You may of course stand, sit and chill out in the living room and other common areas of the house, but your private space will be small. In summary, if you need a lot of private space, this room fits two. If you don't, it fits four.

The SpacePLEASE READ CAREFULLY: DO NOT BOOK a reservation BEFORE you have corresponded with me and I have REPLIED TO YOU. THIS AVOIDS HAVING TO CANCEL THE RESERVATION if we are not on the same page. Thank You ____________________________________ Our beautiful, spacious, airy apt. has a large, furnished room with three windows that brings in sparkling sunshine. The room has its own private entrance which is a very popular feature of the room as it allows one to come and go as one pleases without walking through the rest of the house. The room also has a private porch (pic) with seating to enjoy your coffee and muffin - and last but not least a ceiling fan helps with sleeping during hot days - We also have an air conditioner, so guests can sleep in comfort during the heatwave days. The room - and apartment for that matter , has a very "quiet, meditative vibe" - (since I am a Meditation teacher with a regular practice) which makes for a very restorative ambiance. The apt. is on a very quiet, residential one way street. It is a pretty, tree lined street and the air is full of birdsong at most times. The apt. is about 2 blocks to Davis square which has a whole variety of restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, grocery stores and a great old movie theater. It is also a VERY SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD -and I say this particularly for women who are interested in this listing. I often walk home around midnight after having dinner with friends and I have always felt safe doing that. I have never felt this safe in any other neighborhood that I have lived at. The street is well lit and the houses are owned by people who have lived on the street for generations. There are also quite a few graduate students and young professionals that rent in on this street. We also have private parking in the driveway for anyone who has a vehicle. We are clean, neat people and the apt. reflects that - it has new hardwood floors and a modern feel to it. There is free Wireless internet and the basement has a washer/dryer in it (coin-op). You share the kitchen with us - which is well stocked with pots and pans and a stove-top espresso coffee device. I also have another listing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/46772 Details: Quiet, calm and peaceful house. 4 minutes to Davis Subway and buses.

The neighborhood offers shops/restaurants/music venues galore---all within a short walk outside of our quiet, gardened, private court.

The fidge in your room is big enough to hold at least a few days worth of groceries. There is a desk in your room for working, so please don't spread out anywhere else in the house other than by invitation. Interaction with GuestsWe like to meet and chat with all of our guests initially upon your arrival and to show you the ropes. After that if we're both in a friendly mood, we will leave the door to our living space open for you to come in and say hi! The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is quiet and friendly and our street is tree-lined, and known as one of the nicest blocks in what is a great neighborhood. It's far enough away from the main street so you won't hear any noise, yet within moments you can be at the subway or in Davis or Porter Squares. there's a sweet playground nearby, a bike trail extending 19 miles, and many parks. A Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are both within a 15 minute walk.

Other Things to NoteThe bed is a Queen. It has a high end, brand new, double memory-foam mattress topped with a feather bed. It can be made into a couch with no rods or springs and is made for extended use (ie., not a typical 'sofa couch' although I want the room to feel like a studio, and it easily transform into a couch). Many people who sleep on it mention how comfortable it is. The other bed in the room is a single mattress on the floor which is made of organic bamboo, also v. comfortable from all reports.

The SpaceA nice room in a quiet neighborhood, great access to Harvard, Longwood Medical area, 20-30 minutes to downtown Boston, and more! For more than 2 guests, there is a Japanese sleeping mat on the floor of the living room they can use. While it is cozy for more than a couple of people, I offer it as a good budget alternative for people who generally plan to be out and about most of the day. Guest AccessGuests are free to use the kitchen, as well as relax and lounge in the living room. There is space available in the fridge, freezer, and pantry to store food (though I cook a lot it is good to give me a heads up if you're planning on cooking too). I do sometimes give private Yoga Therapy and Thai Massage sessions in the living room, usually during 10 am to 7 pm. Usually guests are out and about during this time. I do my best to work this around the schedule of any guest currently staying, and it hasn't been a problem so far in a year of AirBnBing. Guests staying 3 days or more may do a load of laundry. Interaction with GuestsPlenty if I'm around!

The closest stop for the 89 is a 5-10 minute walk away which brings you to Sullivan Station and the Orange line, or going the other way it can take you to either Davis (directly or get off at Powder House Circle and walk ~10 minutes down College Ave) or Clarendon Hill. If the weather is nice and you feel like walking it is a 20-30 minute walk to Sullivan Station and the orange line. Walking to Union Square is also quite easy as it's approximately .7 miles away and should take roughly 12-20 minutes. It is a 15 minute walk to catch a bus that goes directly to Harvard Medical School, Children's Hospital Boston, BIDMC / Beth Israel, and Longwood Medical Area.
