The Robert Frost House is an historic house at 29-35 Brewster Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It consists of four wood-frame townhouses, 2-1/2 stories in height, arranged in mirror image styling. Each pair of units has a porch providing access to those units, supported by turned posts and with a low Stick style balustrade. The Queen Anne/Stick style frame house was built in 1884, and has gables decorated with a modest amount of Gothic-style bargeboard. The house was home to poet Robert Frost for the last two decades of his life.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
