Don't stay in a hotel, enjoy our quiet, charming updated victorian on quiet, tree-lined street, 5 min walk to Davis & Porter Squares. Sun-lit master BR suite, open plan kitchen-dining room, secluded backyard garden. 1.5 miles to Harvard Square.
Marisa is very easy to work with. Her house is extremely nice and in a very convenient location (both Davis and Porter square T stops are walkable). It was perfect for my family (6 adults & 1 child) to come together to watch the marathon. Marisa was even able to supply an air mattress for us to sleep on in the family room so everyone had a place to sleep. The house is lived in by Marisa and her family so the drawers in the bed rooms were not empty but this was not a problem at all. There is plenty of room in the house for luggage and Marisa communicated expectations so we were not surprised.
A group of us were in town for a graduate school reunion and we thought it would be nice to get a house rather than stay in a hotel. Marisa's home was beautiful, clean, spacious and conveniently located. She was very pleasant to coordinate with and followed up several times to see if we had any needs. I would highly recommend staying here. Unfortunately we did not have a lot of free time to hang out at the house, but there is a large dining room, front porch and table/chairs in the back yard, so if you do come to the area and want a place to just kick back, this one is great.
