Great stay in this 2-bed condo near Boston in Cambridge near Harvard & Trains! 09/21/2010

VRBO Bear stayed here:

Walking inside the condo you’ll find a comfortable contemporary style living room with a flat screen TV, recliner and couch. The bedrooms are equally comfortable with contemporary furnishings that are the perfect setting for your Boston vacation. The full size kitchen is spacious and open with dining room for 4. The owners were very pleasant and welcoming. If you have an emergency or need advice or directions to local areas, they are just upstairs and always eager to help!

Driving through the neighborhood of Inman Square I knew this was a special place! The many boutique shops, local coffee shops like 1369 and Italian pizza joints make up this eclectic area. At any given moment you can watch the energy and activity of the locals, running, riding their bikes, listening to iPods and drinking coffee. It’s a fun neighborhood with so much to do and see. Getting around was easy with only a 10 minute walk to the “T” that takes you right into Boston. Also, a quick 5 minute trip on the local bus takes you to Harvard Square and the Cambridge Mall. Once at Harvard Square you can tour the famed school, eat at a local restaurant and grab coffee at the corner shop. Thinking of going to Boston? Hop on the Red Line and in less than 15 minutes and you can be there! This condo is conveniently central to all the attractions in Cambridge and Boston.

If you want to stay and experience Boston like a local, this is the place!
