This has been one of the best B&B's I've stayed in and I've been to a fair few here in the UK. I was able to check in fairly late due to my flight arriving late evening. I'll be passing the tips onto furture B&B's to install coded front doors. Even though Somerville is not slap bang in the city,... More

The Location was Great! So close to the Train stop in Davis square, literally 3 short blocks away. Very close to a variety of Cafes and restaurants. The entire House was very clean and maintained well.The Owners and staff were very welcoming from the time I arrived until I left. I had a wonderful breakfast in the beautiful kitchen.

When planning our trip to Boston we wanted to find a place with parking, out of the hectic downtown, in a quaint neighborhood that was reasonably priced. Bowers House met and exceeded our expectations. It's located in a great neighborhood with lots of restaurants and close to the T. The room was very comfortable and the shower was wonderful! For...

The location can't be beat. Close to great restaurants and the T. Our hosts were warm and gracious. Very accommodating. The house was clean and well taken care of. The neighborhood was very safe and walk able. We will stay here every time we visit Boston. We highly recommend it!

I needed a reasonably priced place to stay while in Somerville visiting my son, daughter-in-law and new grandchild. The Bowers B&B was perfect. The location was ideal, the room was super clean with a comfortable bed, the self-serve continental breakfast was a great way to start the day and both Steven and Christine could not possibly have been kinder and...

B&B was clean and the host was very pleasent to work with. I highly recommend the Bowers House. The city of Somervile is a nice little town that is clean and safe. I felt very comfortable walking to the B&B after dark.

Me and my boyfriend stopped at Bowers house for 3 nights. It was excellent value for money and a wonderful stay for us. Steven couldn't have been more helpful with lots of suggestions on what to do around Boston. The breakfast was amazing as was our room. The location was also really good with lots of restaurants in the area.... More

We didn't want to spend $500 a night and be in a big fancy hotel downtown that was cold and stuffy. The Bowers House was a great price and we were literally minutes from everything that we needed. Restaurants, the subway, churches, Harvard, the freedom trail, and even a laundromat. The breakfast was perfect. The hosts were very helpful and... More

We stayed here three nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. Location is great for commuting into Boston, also nice neighborhood with many restaurants nearby. If you like clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced lodging outside if the hubbub of downtown Boston, this is the place for you.

My husband & I stayed at Bowers House for 5 nights the beginning of September while on vacation. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. We loved the location, just a couple minute walk to the T, & Davis Square, which has many good restaurants. Once on the subway, we were in the middle of downtown Boston in 15... More
