    5/5 Meghan a. on Apr 10, 2019

    We lived here for 3 years and really enjoyed it! The team was very responsive with maitenance. Having a weight room was very convenient. We also enjoyed the location on the trail.

    4.5/5 John H. on Jul 20, 2020

    We have been living at Linea for over two years. We have nothing but great things to say about our time here. It has been a wonderful experience from the start. The maintenance, amenities and services are always excellent and there is never a need to ask twice. I am very active so having bikeway in my back yard is an added bonus! plus, it is a 10 minute walk to Davis Square, one of my favorite spots.
