Charming 4 room apartment, near Tufts, Harvard, and MIT

Bedrooms 1
Space 1,100 sq ft
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

An easy 20 minute drive from Logan Int'l Airport to our door.

A two minute walk to the bus stop will take you directly to Harvard Square and to Alewife Station.

If you're driving, we are a few minutes to Route 2 and all roads that loop in and around the city and beyond. Or bike the beautiful Minuteman Trail out the front door to explore all the sights. No need to worry about parking, you'll have access to our off street parking on the property.

Enjoy breakfast on us with eggs, English muffins, cereal, coffee, and other goodies in the refrigerator and pantry.

Our apartment is big, sunny, comfortable, clean with central air conditioning and good for couples, solo adventurers or business travelers.

A perfect location for visiting universities, attending conferences or exploring historic Concord and Lexington or strolling the charming streets of Cambridge and Boston.

Explore our neighborhood on foot. A variety of wonderful restaurants, the most scrumptious cookies at Lakota Bakery, the charming couple at MA-France cheese shop will prepare a crepe to order, while you enjoy their imported goodies or sip a cup of coffee, Berman's Wine & Spirits has a fabulous selection and you'll love the Balich 5 & 10.

You can probably tell, I love my neighborhood.

About Diane Savarese

Happy & outgoing professional. I am a native of Boston. I want people to enjoy staying in my apartment and make the most of this location. I am happy to give insight into cultural, culinary and other experiences in Cambridge, Boston, historic Lexington & Concord and other communities! I’ve traveled

extensively and love meeting people from around the world. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening and cooking with friends. I like sharing my knowledge with others so feel free to ask me about places to go and things to do in the Boston Area.

Diane Savarese purchased this apartment in 2001

What makes this apartment unique

Great location on Minuteman bike trail to Cambridge or to historic Concord.

Great, convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great space. Dianne was so great about providing some basics like soap, lotion, paper towels, etc. The space worked great for my son and I to visit universities in the area.

Attention paid to every detail!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely, clean and perfectly located. My husband and I enjoyed a great run on the nearby Minuteman Bikeway and Diane's attention to every detail including: soft towels, a bathrobe, slippers, nice sheets, coffee, maps, umbrella and even a couple spare raincoats in the closet wowed us. I would highly recommend this place!

Amazing apartment in a quiet location

Our family of four had a wonderful stay in the Boston area. This apartment was in the perfect location for exploring the city. The neighborhood was quiet and the apartment was very clean and well appointed.

Large, functional, good location and pretty!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place - if I were young and single, I would want to live here! Not to be missed: Classic Cafe for full breakfast, French Bakery past Trader Joe's for crepes and baked goods.

It is a fair bus ride to Porter Square but buses run often and T is so easy to use.

It is near the train station to get around Boston . This home was cozy,comfortable , and really tidy . I highly recommend this place and you will not be disappointed. Diane, Thank you so much ! 😊?
