We are in Union Square, the heart of Somerville (next to Boston and Cambridge), with plenty of local restaurants, cafes, bars and shops, a very safe neighborhood.
We are a 30-minute walk to nearby subway stations (a very pleasant walk). You can start your exploration at Harvard or MIT (both on Red Line); 2-4 miles to major Boston attractions (Uber/Lyft is super convenient). More at Getting Around section, or (Hidden by Airbnb) "Union Square, Somerville." Free parking with our 2-day visitor parking permit.
