About Owner/Property Manager
I've worked at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics for almost 30 years, managing the development and installation of telescopes and related equipment around the world. My current project takes me to the Greenland Ice Sheet as we get a 12m radio telescope operating in the Arctic! The objective? To image a black hole! My wife and I bought this home several years ago, after the kids moved out and we decided to move back to the city. After working hard to renovate this 3-family, we started renting the second floor to people like us who need short term rentals and would rather not stay in a hotel.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Winter Hill
This property is conveniently located just a minute off of I-93 and includes parking spaces. Downtown Boston is within a 10-12 minute drive or you can be headed North to the mountains very easily. Public transportation is all around; bus stops are one street over, the MBTA is less than a 15 minute walk away. Safe! This is a working class, family friendly, safe, area that is just recently getting more college students and Boston commuters. There is a lot of renovation going on in the area due to the escalating home values (check for yourself). Somerville is one of the hottest real estate markets in the US.

A comfortable and super clean apartment that had everything we needed for our family of 5.
Tim and Claudia are gracious hosts. This apartment is close to Boston and many amenities such as a grocery store and restaurants. Very safe and quiet neighborhood. A great place to stay! Highly recommend!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We love the convenience of the area after moving here from the suburbs just a few years ago. Access to main bus lines is just one block away, the Orange Line is nearby, and now we have a Blue Bikes station just two blocks away! Claudia and I had a spare half hour today, so we drove over to the Bunker Hill Monument, 8 minutes away by car, to climb all 269 steps (no problem for Claudia, not so easy for me)!
Impeccably clean. Beautifully appointed. Very accommodating owners. Highly recommended.
We plan to stay at this property when we’re next in Boston. Easy commute to the city, quiet neighborhood, centrally
located to restaurants and convenience stores.
Thanks Tim and Claudia.

Clean, spacious apartment, good base for Boston and Cambridge
Clean, comfortable apartment, in a quiet neighborhood, great value as a base for Boston and Cambridge. Worked well for us when we flew to Boston to move our daughter into college. The Assembly Row shopping center and a supermarket are very close by. We rented a car, so the off-street parking was a plus. Tim and Claudia are kind hosts, and allowed us early check in so we could unload our luggage. Be aware that the apartment is on the second floor, up a somewhat winding stairway.
Great to hear you enjoyed the apartment and area! We've added a picture of the hallway stairs at your recommendation!
Pristine and very comfortable
Extremely kind and accomodating hosts; felt like home! Highly recommend
Plenty of room for a family
This apartment was perfect for my family of 4! We all had our own rooms and the living room was comfortable for us to relax in after very busy days of sightseeing. The owners were helpful and very nice.
Great place to tour Boston from
Apt was 2nd floor, not a problem for us, but if you have ambulatory issues, it would be. Beds very comfy and bedrooms large. Nice neighborhood, easy walking. We took Uber in to do Freedom trail, $13 for 5 of us. Train not far away. Tim was so helpful with info on things to do and even had snacks and water for us....above and beyond,!
We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and the area! I thought I would simply respond to the comment regarding 2nd floor. Yes, as mentioned in the ad, this is a 2nd floor apartment. The house is an antique, built in the late 1800s, just like many homes in the Boston area. The stairwell is very typical of this type home and emergency response personnel from the area are quite used to walking up the stairs and responding as needed as they do on a daily basis. Thank you.
This location is ideal for exploring Boston. We are located just 2 minutes off of Rt. 93 which means you are within 15 minutes drive of Logan Airport, 12 minutes to Fanueil Hall, downtown Boston, the Science Center, and some of the finest universities in the world and within the Boston/Cambridge area (Harvard, MIT, BU, BC, Tufts, Leslie, etc...the list is amazing). We are also one block off a main bus line and a short bus ride to the MBTA Orange Line (Sullivan Square) or Red Line (Davis Square). Bus 86 runs from Sullivan Square to Harvard Square in 10 minutes (check the MBTA schedule for yourself). You can walk to get food, eat at restaurants, or go shopping. If you are heading to other areas of New England, Rt. 93 takes you North to NH or, south through Boston and onto the Cape. It also takes you to Rt.95 in 15 minutes so that you can head to Maine or along the "128 Corridor".
