We have a nice guestroom with an attached private bathroom. Featuring wifi, queen-size bed, fridge, keurig, A/C and off-street parking for a medium vehicle. 25 second walk to the subway. Two sm. dogs. Two night minimum. No kitchen access. On-street parking until the snow melts and then we have driveway parking. Parking in the winter is very difficult here. I don't advise taking a vehicle.

The space

We're so close to the subway. It takes me 25 seconds of walking to get to the Davis Square subway station. In your first email to us, please tell us about yourself, what brings you to the area and your links. We've been renting for years using airbnb. Again, first email, full info. We have a great place here. The Subway MBTA has an easy-to-read website. Hubway bike rentals is across the street. Our place is the closest room you can rent to the subway. We don't charge a cleaning fee. Please have a PHOTO of your smiling FACE and a few verifications before trying to book with us. Thanks.

Guest access

Just come on in through the front door. My wife speaks English, Spanish, Russian and Polish. We have umbrellas, hair driers, extras, acoustic guitars. Let us know what you want and we'll try to provide. No 'real' kitchen.

Interaction with guests

Not much. We give the guest the key, show them around, introduce them to the dogs and they're on their own. We've been doing this for years. We understand that people are arriving from all different time zones. We let them be. We have a nice clean room, messy house. Send full info in FIRST email. Thanks.

Other things to note

We have two small dogs. They don't go into the room if the door is closed. Please have a face photo and a few verifications before trying to book with us. No booking with pseudonyms. Thanks.

I moved to Boston for work and didn't have an apartment lined up yet so chose to stay with Bob as it was close to public transport and the areas I was planning on renting and apartment. I arrived quite late and Bob and his wife had a meal for me which was delicious and much needed as I hadn't eaten for a long time. The room was cosy and had great heating to ward off winter. The coffee machine was a welcomed treat too. Bob was happy to tell me about the area and the best places to get groceries or a bite to eat. Bob is the kind of charcter that is delightful to talk to will go out of his way to help. So much so he lent me his air mattress while I was waiting for my new one to be delivered to my apartment. Highly recommended.

Bob's place was just perfect. Location amazing - just over the road from the subway station and shops. The room was spacious , own bathroom and fridge and Bob was an excellent host.

Seconds from the T is not an exaggeration! This was a great private room and bathroom in the perfect location for exploring Davis and then all around Boston. It was very comfortable and all of the little extras you may need while traveling were available. Bob was very kind and helpful when sought out. Seemed like a great guy too :)

Our stay at Bob & Dorota's was wonderful. We researched a lot of places in the Cambridge/Somerville area and theirs was the perfect choice for our 5 night stay since we were so very close to the Davis Sq. redline stop and we were using all public transport for our Boston getaway. They were extra gracious in staying up late for our midnight arrival (late flight) making sure we were well accommodated with some extra touches. The room is simple and slightly small, but comfortable and the private bath was an essential accommodation for us and it was nice to have. The room is close to their closed off kitchen, but we felt like we had plenty of privacy. There is a comfy chair and a fun array of interesting books to choose from. We would love to stay here again in the future!

Antiques and collectibles dealer and my wife Dorota works in a Day Care Center at MIT in Cambridge. We've had guests from all over the world stay here. We've used another site for years to book the room and have recently joined airbnb. Our two dogs are used to having guests by now.

We supply umbrellas, towels, sheets, acoustic instruments, etc. Let us know what you'll be needing and we'll have it here.
