One commuter rail stop all the way out in the far corner of West Medford. Unless you live in that corner, you'd likely have to catch a bus to get to the stop but then you might as well take a bus either to Wellington or the #96 directly to Harvard Square in Cambridge from Medford Square.

Adam's Village is the intersection of Gallivan Blvd and Adams Street in Dorchester. It's a predominantly Irish neighborhood and is not too far from the Ashmont and Cedar Grove stations on the Red Line.

The other posters pretty much answered the regards to Medford and Everett but the bottom line is you'd be relying more on buses than rail to get to Cambridge. Medford has the #96 that leaves from Medford Square that goes directly to Harvard Square in Cambridge and the #94 that goes to Davis Square, Somerville where you can continue to Cambridge via Red Line while you can catch a variety of buses from Everett to Sullivan Square and change for the #86 or #91 to go to Cambridge. That's why the two are slightly less convenient. I am not sure what the average rent is but they should all be less expensive than Somerville or Cambridge itself.

Not sure what you mean by cheap, but Malden/Melrose/Medford border the Middlesex Fells Reservation, which is beautiful, and Saugus borders the Breakheart Reservation, which is also another beautiful state park. All towns would be a pretty easy commute to Cambridge (either driving or by train).
