Fully-furnished 4-bedroom home in West Medford - Easy access to Cambridge, Somerville, Boston

We are a family of four in a large home in West Medford, MA. We are Steve, Ellen, Valerie (11 years old) and Elias (7 years old). We do have a dog as well (a medium dog - English Springer Spaniel) named Tuck.

Our entire home will be available through the 2020-2021 academic year. It's a great big house (4 Bd, 2.5 baths) in ideal location. Super convenient (12 minutes) by rail to downtown Boston; 1.5 miles to Tufts and vibrant Davis Sq., Somerville. Harvard 3 miles. Outdoor activities, bike trails, boutique shops, restaurants all nearby.

If interested, we can send an entire overview of the house to complement the information in the listing below.
I'm quite certain that if you are interested, we could put you in touch with our previous tenants (we have also rented just a room via Sabbatical Homes in the past) to have them answer questions about us, our house, and commuting. In return, we would ask to know a little more about you and to be in touch with potential references. We can perhaps meet via Zoom/Skype or phone first to be sure it is the right situation for us both before proceeding with those steps.

About Me
We are a family living in West Medford, outside of Boston. We became involved with home "sharing" in the academic community when we first needed a home for 2 summers in Madison, WI and got involved with Professors at UW Madison who rented us their homes. We had wonderful experiences meeting them and enjoying their homes. Last year, a friend's cousin came as a visiting Associate Professor to Harvard from Austria, he needed a place to stay and stayed with us for 3 months. Soon after he left, other friends reached out to say that a young PhD student from Berlin needed a room. He stayed with us for 3 months as well. We believe we have a nice place to offer to people who are only staying temporarily. We can easily contact our former tenants as references if that would be help.
