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

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.
