After plane, bus, train and a short walk, we entered the arbor into a fairy garden and the cutest home! This home is immaculately clean and tidy and every thoughtful detail is provided. We stayed in a room with a queen for me (50ish) and a twin for my daughter (23). The kitchen seemed like it was set and waiting... More

Visited family in Cambridge for my birthday and stayed at the Bed and Muffin for our second time. Kinda quaint and kitschy (hello kitty) Very comfortable and easy place to stay. Good location near bus stops and Rite Aide and Whole Foods but mostly residential. Thanks for a great visit Sarah.

Booked this place last minute when friends were coming to visit. Lovely cosy and quaint place and incredibly good value. Location is go do, 10 mins from central square where the red line will bring you right into central Boston. Right across the street from a great grocery (wholefoods) and just up from the river and magazine beach. The lady... More

I was totally surprised. Little did I expect to feel so well prepared on this trip. Sarah went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. She has covered everything you might have forgotten or even thought you wouldn't need. This is truly a gem of a place. I did not expect to feel comfortable about the shared... More

Stayed just one night, but very nice. Quieter than most Cambridge places. My room’s shared bath was shared with just one other room, I think. Comfy bed. Very funky and eclectic knickknacks, including a fair amount of Hello Kitty stuff. Lots of thoughtful touches and lots of bathroom supplies. Wifi slow but reliable. Breakfast is self-serve: yogurt, coffee, juice, toast,... More

It's a great place to stay. It's reasonably priced and in great location. Walking distance to Harvard. The host is fantastic and very helpful. She cleans every day. All is in Hello Kitty style but a little eccentricity doesn't do any harm. Would recommend to friends.

It is a very nice place to stay. I would stay here again. It was neat and adorable. It was also very low-drama and quiet, a good location and pleasantly old-fashioned. It felt like a little oasis after busy days. I'd also suggest trying the bowl of steamers at the nearby seafood market and the maple-smoked salmon bellies at the... More

Stayed there three nights while attending nonprofit organization board meetings. It's a very comfortable and fun place to stay that is quite affordable compared to many hotels in the area. Sarah, the owner, has thought of EVERYTHING. Not only are the bathrooms chock full of any toiletry item and so on you might need, but also in the public areas... More

“First floor room is off of the kitchen, there are 2 rooms on the 2nd floor, both lovely, and no clue about the 3rd floor! Ask for the first floor if you can't manage stairs. All the rooms we saw had a full/queen bed and a twin in them.”

“There are two rooms on the third floor, two on the second floor, and one on the first floor.”

“All the rooms look good, but the one on the first floor is right next to the kitchen and entry, so if you're looking for a lot of privacy, ask for an upstairs one.”
