A quaint, rustic cottage hidden in the heart of Harvard Square in an off-street community with all amenities.


*Please contact me before instant booking. We always want to make sure this is the right fit for your needs.*

A rustic, secluded garden cottage with skylight located behind a private residence in Harvard Square. Quiet and peaceful, yet only a few steps from the center of the square and the Charles river.

The cottage is filled with mostly vintage things, antiques and pieces constructed from reclaimed wood. It has it's quarks and imperfections, true to old Cambridge, and exactly why I love it. The cottage used to be a film editing studio back in the 70's by a documentary film maker at Harvard. I've been in the process of renovating it over the past couple of years. It now has radiant under-floor heating, which is nice on the toes.

Next on the renovation TODO list is the old bathroom tub and tiles…they are old and stained and in need of replacing. (Note that although they don't look awesome, everything is sterile and clean.)

There is one very comfortable, full-sized (double) bed. Full bathroom and a kitchenette with a fridge, toaster oven, microwave, kettle and french press for coffee. Cutlery, dishes and some pots and pans are available. There's a 40in HDTV with basic over-the-air channels, a ROKU device with a live streaming cable TV app with most channels available, and an Apple TV for streaming other movies, Netflix, HBO, etc.

Two blocks from public transport (Harvard T stop on the Redline) and around the corner from Burdicks Chocolate, Tuscanos italian eatery, Anthropology (men be warned) and Darwin's Cafe for excellent espresso and gourmet sandwiches (not to mention a fantastic wine and beer selection). There's a post office, Fedex/Kinkos, laundromat, salon, record store and pretty much any amenity you might want within a block.

A great getaway for writers and artists who want a peaceful but central retreat or the tourist who wants to be in the middle of everything without feeling like it.

NOTE: The cottage locks by deadbolt. Although there are remnants of a former chain lock system, most of the hardware has been removed save the chain which can't be removed without replacing the doorframe trim.

Dostupno gostima

The cottage is in the heart of Harvard Sq and is 2 mins from everything it has to offer. Laundry facilities can be available for stays over 4 days, alternatively there is a laundromat on our block for wash and fold services.

The cottage is behind a private residence on a private way with close neighbors. It is important that guests exercise discretion and privacy due to the nature of it's location (i.e. no loud noise/music or partying). No smoking is aloud on the property. Guests will need to walk out to the main street (not the private drive) to smoke. There will be someone on the premises looking after things around the property and will be available to help if there are any questions.

Loved staying at Christopher’s place—a rare hidden gem in Harvard Square. Small converted cottage was cozy, arty, charming. We appreciated the self climate-control for a.c. and fan. Shower had strong hot water, bed was comfortable, wake up to cool skylight view of tree leaves. Kitchenette (not for serious cooking) was stocked with lots of thoughtful amenities (microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot, cutlery, spices…). Location was perfect for us! Convenient to Harvard Square T, bus, eateries, CVS, etc. Christopher was super: warm, friendly, great communicator. It was a real pleasure meeting and talking to Chris about his work on the cottage, and his own work with non-profit org in Kenya. Our young granddaughter was particularly impressed by his special hand-made electric guitar, based on his middle-school woodshop knowledge and skills. We would definitely return and highly recommend Christopher’s place!

Amazing location, private and secluded yet close to everything. I will note it's behind (and separate from) a big house that may have multiple units - however we never saw a single other person on the property during the 3 nights we stayed there. T stop a 5 minute walk, dozens of amazing restaurants and shops within 10 minute walk. And of course, very close to the university if that's a requirement. Funky chic decor. Felt like a clean well maintained bachelor pad - everything in dark browns and greys. Bathroom very clean. Kitchenette exactly as described. Don't plan to cook a 4 course meal, but quite adequate for brewing your coffee in the french press and toasting up your bagels. We only had one pillow each, which we lived with, but would have loved 2 per person. Summary - this is a great base of operations to explore Harvard Square and the rest of Boston and environs.

Chris was a gracious and incredibly responsive host. We loved the cottage and it was just right for our 4 nights stay in Harvard Square.

The place is perfect for travelling in Boston and getting a good rest. The decor is fun and the book selection on the shelves is impeccable. Chris is a welcome and communicative host; ask him if you are not sure or need help with anything. I travelled for business so I was out most of the day and in later at night after work. The neighborhood is quiet, clean, safe, and friendly. The amenities are all close by. It really is the perfect spot to get to know Boston. Thank you Chris!

We enjoyed very much our stay at Christopher's place. He was proactive communicating with us and promptly answering any questions we have. His place is very close to Harvard Square, near public transportation, restaurants and everything else, but still in a quiet area, which we appreciated. The cottage is cozy, nicely decorated and with the right amenities to make our stay comfortable. We would definitely go back.

I'm originally from British Colombia but have lived in Boston for the last 15 years. I work in the music industry and am involved with a non-profit that does work in Kenya. Amateur gardener and handyman when it's called for and I'm learning to ride a bike again.
