Bowers House is just perfect. The owners are very nice and friendly. The room was beautiful, but most important, it was sparkling clean! Breakfast was really good too (pastries, fruit, cereals, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea, etc.). There's space to park outside in the street and the area is very safe and convenient (very close to Davis subway station, to restaurants... More

Bowers House has three rooms. We took two of them. Of the two we took, one was up a very steep flight of stairs, not suitable for older people, but otherwise comfortable. The other had a private bathroom across the hall. Unfortunately, that section of hallway was the intersection for all movement in the building -- the stairs from the... More

Christina and Stephen are amazing hosts and so helpful about sites to see in Boston. It was very clean, parking was free and on a quiet street. The great thing was how close it was to the T (subway) and very easy to get to downtown Boston. Kerry and Marla

This house is located in a great location, close to Davis Square with tons of restaurants. It is also very close to the T station, so you can get anywhere quickly. Convenience is just one part of the charm. The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming, with suggestions for food or sight seeing. A nice spread of bakery items, fruit,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bowers House. As we were driving to Boston for a couple days of vacation, we were looking for a place outside the city-proper to park and take the T as needed. Bowers House is located on the Red Line, about a 15 minute train ride from downtown. The hostess, Christine, made our stay... More

My company has an office in Somerville and I stay here every time I come up. Well, except once when the B&B was booked so I got stuck at a Marriott in downtown Boston. I now schedule my business trips around room availability because the rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable on top of the convenience. My favorite... More

Christine is a new breed of hostess- she provides the accomodations and you use them as you wish. A group breakfast can be quaint but if you want to sleep in, you can eat a la carte at Bowers. Fruit and baked items, yogurt- just take what you want. It's like you crashed at a friend's renovated house in a... More

We had a wonderful time in Boston and the Bowers House made the stay even more perfect! I would stay there again and again when we travel to Boston! Clean, comfortable, quiet, lovely with easy access to walk to Davis Square and to get around Somerville.

Had a great time. Davis square had several restaurants to choose from, which was nice coming back from the subway. Subway 2-3 blocks away. Loved being able to have access to the refrigerator for leftovers and cream to make a cup of coffee anytime. Hosts had brochures and magazines to help us plan our day. Hosts very helpful with suggestions.... More
