We had a wonderful stay at Bowers House! Easy to get to transportation. Excellent breakfast each morning. Ours hosts were so kind and helpful! We look forward to staying here again the next time we visit. We stayed on the king room and it was very clean and quite roomy. Very nice bathroom too. Couldn't be more pleased with our... More

This bed and breakfast is amazingly convenient as it is in the center of Davis Square and just steps from the T. The Innkeepers are warm, welcoming and very helpful. The rooms are comfortable and spotless, the continental breakfast is very handy, the full kitchen allowed us to keep some of our own food in the fridge and freezer, free... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the Bowers House. I had actually never stayed at a B&B before. I booked this B&B for a road trip I was taking with my mother. We booked a room for 2 nights. I really liked that the owners sent an e-mail prior to our arrival with all of the details we needed to find... More

Bowers House is a lovely B & B that is very well run. Everything is extremely clean with modern bathroom and a great kitchen. It very quite and a very short walk to Davis Square. A great place and an excellent value for your stay in the Somerville / Cambridge area.

Bowers House is quiet, clean, comfortable and only steps from the wonderful restaurants and entertainment of Davis Square. The subway stop two blocks away puts all of Boston within easy reach. The attentive hosts are lovely people. Note that the breakfast is minimal but worked for me. I'll definitely stay there on my next visit.

The location is a perfect, quiet street just half block from Davis Sq. where there is an abundance of restaurants, clubs and activity. The house and rooms are pristine and well maintained and the hosts attended to every detail to make our stay comfortable.

This was perfect for my purposes (conference at Harvard). The owners are very friendly and the room was very nice. As a couple of other reviewers have said, this is more like a guest room than anything else, but frankly that's a plus in my book.

This is not really a B&B, it has more of a feel of staying in a friend's extra room. The house is nothing to take a selfie with, it is split, with the owners staying in a separate half of the house. The room was very quiet, however, and the location is great, walking distance to the T. The food... More

Bowers House is in Davis Square, just a few blocks from the T stop and very close to restaurants and shops on Elms Street. The owners, Chris and Steve, are friendly and helpful. With only 3 rooms, the house is very quiet and calm. The property was very clean and the WiFi excellent. Free continental type breakfast and access to... More

There was a comfortable bed, a fully equipped bathroom, free wifi, a desk, a TV, free breakfast and free parking- all the perks of a top hotel at a fraction of the price. The hosts were very nice and welcoming and very flexible. The day I checked in I had to arrive late at night and the hosts communicated with... More
