Lovely home in quiet neighborhood of West Cmbridge. Kitty was a wonderful hostess!

  • 5 of 5

Great accomodations with comfortable beds, all the necessities and niceties of home. Kitty was very responsive whenever we had a question. Great location that was easy for our party of 6 to get around from using Lyft and driving our own cars. Fantastic restaurants 2

Within walking distance. Others just a short drive away. Easy walk to grocery store (Star Market). Everything you need is in the house. Little upstairs seating room is so peaceful.

Fresh Pond has a very nice walking/running trail all around it, and the neighborhood itself is nice for walking.

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay! Thank you Kitty!

Great owners, great property, and close to transportation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable and roomy for our family of seven. Kitty and her husband are terrific and were very helpful to us newcomers to the Boston area. They helped make our first trip to Boston a success. I give them and their beautiful home five stars.

This home is perfect for any family to enjoy. The owners were very helpful and live just next door so if you need anything at all it was very easy to obtain. The home was extremely well maintained, and a couple block walk from star market and a few restaurants, and very close my family's home walking along fresh pond. I would highly recommend staying here for a few days or a week, whatever the time needs are.

Everything was fabulous and the owners were very accommodating! They even made us cookies! They were able to be reached by text easily. The house was beautiful as perfect for our 8 person family. The ONLY con was that if you are looking to cook, you may need to bring some supplies. We needed a cheese shredder, a cutting board, and a mixing bowl atleast. They do have pans and spatulas, and place settings for 8 however. Just plan accordingly! Overall, everything was Great!

We loved staying at Kitty’s Home. The location was convenient to Cambridge yet quiet, with parks and restaurants nearby. Would definitely stay again.
