About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)


This newly renovated condo has hardwood floors throughout. The decor is modern and the walls exhibit a collection of artful Black and White as well as color photographs. The house was built in 1845, in the Greek Revival style.

We are located in Inman Square-a neighborhood of Cambridge that sits between Harvard and MIT. Inman Square has some of the most highly regarded restaurants in the Boston area including Oleana and the East Coast Grill, among many others.

We are a 10 minute walk to the Central Square T stop and a 15-20 minute walk to Harvard Square. We are also a 15 minute walk to MIT. The Central Square train stop is 3 stops on the red line from Boston Common. We are closer to downtown Boston than most of Boston.

Our condo is ideal for families and groups as well as visiting academics. We offer an affordable and spacious alternative to hotels with a full eat-in kitchen in the condo. The condo and linens are thoroughly cleaned after every stay.

About Jim Creighton

We both love Cambridge for its walkability, restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops and nightlife. Michelle works for the State of Maine in policy analysis and I am a self-employed Cabinetmaker. When not working we both enjoy creative pursuits, reading and eating good food.

We recently moved to the coast of Maine and decided to turn this condo, our previous home, into a vacation rental. The space has undergone renovations and should provide a perfect launching point for travelers to explore the Cambridge/Boston area.

Jim Creighton purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jim Creighton chose Boston

Our second floor condo sleeps up to 6 people comfortably and is within a 10 minute walk of the red line T at Central Square. It is located steps away from the bustling Inman Square center where you will find many outstanding restaurants, shops and bars.

What makes this condo unique

Inman Square is a genuine culinary mecca with many of the finest restaurants in the Boston area nearby.

Family loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Very cosy and close to a number of restaurants and shops. We had a great time and would consider staying here again.

The stairs are a bit of a challenge.

A little disappointed

  • 3 of 5

First this is a great location and the owner has a dedicated parking spot just up the street which is huge since there is no street parking. The location was great for us however there were a few things that we were not happy with. The bed in the loft/attic area came apart twice, informed the owner so hope it gets fixed before someone gets hurt. The kitchen was not very well stocked as compared to many of the VRBO's that we have stayed at.

While the condo is very nice there is not a great deal of space for a family to gather other than the kitchen which has a great table for that. If you are seeking a space to land and use as a base then this will work for many, it was just not as comfortable for us.

Marathon stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a quiet neighbourhood and has everything you need. It is in a perfect location for some sight seeing on foot and is close to public transportation. Parking is limited and if you are not there on a Sunday you might want to ask the owner for a reserved parking permit. On arrival there were not enough towels for the six of us but after a phone call they were delivered promptly!

Overall we were very pleased with our stay!

Convient, Clean, and made our visit to Harvard very enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening and were very happy with how easy it was to locate the apartment and our parking space. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was very adequate. The location with the bus only three houses away and the parking one house away made transportation options very easy. A mini mart just half a block away and other food options very close by. We will definitely return to this apartment when ever we return to Boston.

Neat and clean. Perfect if on a budget.

  • 3 of 5

Upon arriving, from the street the condo is quaint and cute and has need kept up. When you open the door to go inside the stairs are IMMEDIATELY upon opening the door and VERY STEEP and narrow, this could be an issue for some travelers. When you open the door to the unit, it is clean and tidy. It is old, so all the floors creek. There were ample linens for the bathroom and kitchen. Pots and pans plentiful. Weird inexpensive utensils but meet the need. No cutting board and take your own knives, if you like sharp, decent knives for meal prep. There was no shower gel or napkins/paper towels but plenty of hand soap and dish soap. Well supplied. There is no dresser in the 2nd room for "storage", but some sort of "table" which worked ok. There is only one small closet with a few hangers for hanging coats. Overall, we were happy with our accommodations and I would stay here again. There were 4 of us in our party. It wasn't too loud, beds were decent. Neighbors downstairs were pleasant. Close to attractions.

Good for a family

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on the second floor, with rather steep stairs. The third bedroom is actually a loft that is reached through the second bedroom. The arrangement was perfect for our three grandchildren. The apartment is very close to Inman Square,. We recommend that you buy a Charlie Card with unlimited bus and subway and take bus # 83 or #91 to and from the Central Square T station. From there it's just a few stops to central Boston. This will save a long walk down Inman Street. Other than an overhead light out in the kitchen and the ice maker not working, everything was fine (There were ice trays). All necessary utensils were provided; and although there was only air conditioning in the kitchen and the third bedroom, fans was provided in the other two bedrooms, which we found quite adequate. We appreciated having coffee and sugar left in the apartment.
