This is a family home that my grandmother and grandfather bought back in the late 20's. We are very proud of the fact that we are 4 generations strong. I lived here for 15 years while studying and working. I just love this area and enjoy coming back every so often. We hope that you will enjoy the area as much as we do.

Thank you for being so patient. I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay in Cambridge and we look forward to your future visits.
Good location and as nice as expected
Good home base for touring Harvard and visiting some Boston highlights.
Thank you for the nice review. Hope to have you again soon.
Excellent apartment in a fantastic location
We stayed at Leigh's apartment in early June and had a wonderful time. The apartment was modern, well kept, and very clean. We comfortably fit 3 adults and a child (plus a toddler in a Pack & Play).
Location is great -- very close to Harvard Square and Central Square, grocery stores (WholeFoods, Trader Joes), playgrounds, and the Charles River.
We would definitely stay again when next in the Cambridge/Boston area.
Great stay in May!
We spent four nights here in May 2018. The apartment is completely updated, clean and very well equipped! Just a few minutes walk from Harvard, it’s located in a very quaint area of Cambridge. Home from home, we would definitely return next time we are in the Boston area.
Very clean and comfortable and great location
The ice machine and freezer were broken during our stay. The owner did try to get a repair person to come but to no avail. She has offered to “ compensate “ us for the inconvenience.
The freezer is now fully functional!!!
Close to everything, but still quiet.
We are two college roommates from MIT, class of 1980, who decided to visit our old stomping grounds, especially while the lilacs were blooming. This apartment worked wonderfully for us. It was close to Harvard Square and the red line, as well as groceries and restaurants. In fact, there's a Enterprise Rent-a-Car 1/2 mile away, which we used for a day trip out to Cape Cod, which was a nice break from the city.
Having the second bathroom was essential for us two women. There were plenty of clean towels and the kitchen was well stocked. And there was plenty of room for each of us to spread out.
The neighborhood was so lovely. It seemed as though everything was blooming - dogwoods, tulips, and of course, those heavenly smelling lilacs.
Leigh is a terrific owner - super responsive throughout the entire process, as as accommodating as possible.
A couple of restaurant recommendations (this coming from a CA foodie!!):
Loyal Nine. in Cambridge a short Uber ride away... small plates of delicious, interesting food, perfect for sharing. The waitstaff was terrific.
Shepard, a short walk away in Harvard Square. Yummy cocktails, knowledgeable staff and delicious food, very fresh.
Wonderful stay; thanks Leigh for sharing your place. How I miss Cambridge, and man, has it changed!!
Wow you sure did cover a lot of ground!!! Thank you for the review we and hope to have the opportunity to host you again.
