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

We have stayed at Bowers House four times, each in a different year. The owners are friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The kitchen is accessible for coffee, cold drinks and snacks. It is the type of place that we enjoy and is located in a neighborhood which we like.

This place is awful! Do not stay here. The owners do not listen, they are unhelpful, uncaring, non-compassionate! I booked a reservation and tried to stay here. I asked if I could park my electric scooter in the lobby area. Not only would they not accommodate my request, they intentionally cancelled my reservation! They stated they would not make any...

Please note that Leo T never had a reservation or stayed with us, contrary to the review. We never spoke with or heard of Leo T. This person must be mistaken us with a different place. More

Recently we stayed at the Bower House in Sommerville. The host is charming,the place is spottless ,and lovely amenities. We were on a buisiness and mini vacation trip. Very close to the T on the Red line and hip Davis square. A great location and a pleasant stay-we will be back!

I and my daughter from Australia stayed at Bowers house for almost 2 weeks in preparing her college. The room was clean and spacious. The house is located only 5 minutes walking to Davis Square where has lot of restaurants. The Davis Square T (Red line) subway is very convenient to Harvard, MIT and Boston downtown. The owner, Steven really... More

The B&B is located in a mixed neighborhood, several stops outside the city on the (T) red line. The host runs a slick operation. He is welcoming, helpful and attentive. The room was immaculately clean. However our room (with queen size bed) was small and the air conditioner noisy. We considered the total price for four nights expensive for what... More

My daughter and I recently stayed here for two nights. The room was comfortable and clean, and the personal attention from Stephen really made our stay great. He was ready with restaurant recommendations, directions, and even a complimentary umbrella. We mentioned that we were planning on going to Legoland Discovery Center, so he took it upon himself to find out... More
