Found this great place...and we stay here every time we visit family in Cambridge. Love the Victorian rooms, excellent continental breakfast included. Staff always very helpful and easy walk to the T (and to our family)

I have stayed here several times over the years , and would again without question. Not only is it located half a block from a bus stop with regular connections, it's only about three blocks to a red line subway station. A trendy grocery store is across the street. Lots of restaurant options within a five minute walk. The accommodation...

This is a cute house in a great location within walking distance to Harvard square. There are plenty I restaurants a and nice, safe place to walk around in the evening. The accommodations were just ok. The room was tiny. I expected small and quaint, B&B style, but this room was so small my husband could almost touch both sides...

Cambridge is expensive, so I was not expecting too much. The entire building is decorated in the 20's style. Slow music plays in the background in the dinning room. 10 min walk to the red line station. Some rooms look better than others. I unfortunately was assigned to an attic room. The ceiling is super low. If you are over...

We have stayed here numerous times over the last 6 years. The location for Tufts University is hard to beat but it is at best described as a quirky place. Rooms-tiny. Towels-small. Breakfast-store bought and nothing special. Price-not tiny. Still it has it unique charm. It may just not be right for you.

This quintessential New England Inn is always a treat to stay at. Led by innkeeper Andrea the staff is cordial and makes everyone feel at home. It is beautfuly decorated, especially its classic rooms with attractive canopy beds. Situated about a mile from city center and Harvard Square, parking is never an issue. Few inns can offer the great value...

Comfortable B& B with free parking, some nearby restaurants, convenience store, organic food store, and reasonable walk to T-station/Davis Square. The breakfast is ok - nothing special. Overall, a good value.

Stayed several weeks ago at this B&B. Have been here before but stayed years ago in the main building. Looks very pretty on the outside, outdated on the inside. I stayed in a Victorian room years ago which had a very comfy bed but a very noisy a/c and was a bit creepy. Bathroom was super small and tv was...

My boyfriend and I booked a last minute trip to Boston and we were lucky enough to find this B&B for a great price. They offer free parking and breakfast is included. The parking was definitely a selling point for us since you have to pay for parking at most of the hotels in Boston and it's not cheap! The...
