We selected the Cambridge Vacation Rental based on the Trip Advisor reviews and the positive feedback from the other visitors. The information from the Bed and Breakfast Associates was helpful, the lock box instructions worked well and the parking instructions were very helpful. The owner, Wendy was very supportive and encouraged us to make ourselves at home. She offered advice and made sure that we did not feel obligated to sit around and make small talk. We had booked room #2 and were very pleased with our choice. The back of the home location made us feel like we had our own private suite. The bed was very comfortable with extra pillows and blankets available. The room had a very nice sitting area next to the window where you could listen to the birds and enjoy a few quiet moments before taking on the busy streets of Boston. There was a convenient desk located under the stained glass window and the internet information was provided. The bathroom was well appointed with lots of towels and face cloths. The walk to the subway station at Central Square was not a problem, even with the snowy sidewalks we were able to make the trip in under seven minutes.
The Whole Foods store had everything food wise that you would need. We were able to stop at the convenience store at the corner of Broadway and Prospect to pick up a six pack of Sam Adams. Cambridge has lots of excellent places to visit. We really enjoyed our time at Lord Hobo's bar and thank Erin for her advice on where to find the best local bar to watch the Patriots game on Sunday. Trina's Starlight Lounge, although a little quirky on the outside and crowded on the inside, was a perfect choice. We met great people, tried some excellent locale ales and really appreciated the extra attention and service from John the bartender.
We had a great vacation and spent New Years in Boston with a million other revelers and were very happy to get back to the quiet of Cambridge. This great community was a perfect choice for us to be able to explore Boston and yet enjoy the feel of a small town. The people were all very helpful, from the young man who helped us buy the Charlie card passes, to the transit officials who gave advice on the trains, to the service support staff who all helped us to have a wonderful holiday. We would certainly recommend this vacation rental to anyone who is interested in a reasonably priced accommodation choice with many options for having a great place to stay.
