This B&B has exactly everything a traveller needs. Our rooms was comfortable, with plenty of outlets for charging electronics. The hosts were very helpful with information about Boston and Somerville. What made it perfect for us was the "open" kitchen. We were shown were to get yogurt, fruit, etc if we needed to get breakfast before the hosts officially brought... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in September and we can't recommend it highly enough. The house is lovely and comfortable and the hosts are so helpful and welcoming. It's in a perfect location, quiet but near to the bars and restaurants in Davis Square. The subway is just around the corner and it's a quick and easy journey into... More

Me and my wife were on one of our US road-trips, this one in New England. We got round to visiting Boston and looked up hotel prices. What??? City centre locations were totally beyond our budget range so we looked further afield. Beverley found this little pearl in Somerville. Not all reviews were complimentary but I've somehow developed a 6th... More

Bowers House was a convenient, clean, and comfortable place to stay while I was in town for a few days. It's in a great location, as it's very close to downtown Davis Square and a ton of restaurants, bars, etc, as well as easy access to the T. The room was very clean and comfortable; I stayed for two nights... More

When I stay at a B&B, I want more than just clean and comfortable. Part of the fun of B&B's is staying in a nicely appointed room that oozes charm and having a breakfast that includes some homemade items. I don't expect a full hot cooked breakfast, but something homemade like granola or muffins or fruit compote to go with... More

Bowers House is an excellent place to stay while visiting Boston in addition to being a great value. Steven met us upon arrival and was most helpful. Our room was exceptionally clean and the shower rivaled some in 4 star hotels I have stayed in. Having a place to park the car was also a big plus. We will definitely... More

This bed and breakfast is by far the best deal in Boston/Cambridge. All of the hotels we looked at online were over $200 a night more, but bowers house was only $155 plus tax which is a great deal for Boston. Even though it is not right in downtown Boston, it is only a 5 minute walk from the nearest... More

This bed and breakfast was lovely. Very clean. The breakfast was out early so we were able to get our coffee and something to eat when we woke up. Steven, the host, was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable. We will go here again and highly recommend it.

We loved this place. We stayed in the 'queen 1' room and it was exactly like the picture. The bathroom was a great size, and the room had a wardrobe with plenty of space for our things. The bed was very comfortable. Christina and Steven are perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful with everything we needed. Wifi was excellent, fast... More
