Rent a fully-furnished, sunny, renovated apartment in a quiet, owner-occupied Victorian house in Harvard Square, the center of Harvard University. The house is located on a wide, tree-lined street of brick sidewalks and classic 19th century Victorian houses. Built in 1888, the house is a cross-gabled Queen Anne with a corner turret and a full-width porch which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as Bertha Thayer House.

The apartments are clean, light and functionally modern with simple traditional character inherent in the building. Each has a private interior entrance. The apartments are outfitted such that guests are able to arrive from the airport with
only their luggage and can commence with the purpose of their visit unencumbered by homemaking tasks and expenditures. Further simplifying household administration, a single monthly payment covers rent, heat, hot water, electricity, air conditioning, wireless Internet access, and all furniture and furnishings. The guest feels at home upon arrival and integrated into life as a resident Cantabrigian. A guiding principle for the owners is their own threshold of suitability of the apartments were they visitors themselves.

In Cambridge pedestrian travel and public transport have primacy over the automobile. With a location so accessible to Harvard, MIT, other schools, and to transportation, the residences are ideal for visiting faculty, other academic affiliates and executives.
